Mamma4earth’s Second Birthday Giveaway!

This week my Etsy shop, Mamma4earth has been open for 2 years! To celebrate I am having a GIVEAWAY! My Etsy shop has brought me so much joy, I have met the most wonderful people from all over the world, kindred spirits, that I never would have encountered, so I am very grateful for my little shop:) I also enjoy the creative outlet that I have gained from it, designing new patterns, dyeing yarn, knitting and sewing and sending  treasures out into the universe with love…
And now for the giveaway:

The items below are what you can win;) I am giving away:

An Autumn Horse:
He has been knitted in Camel Silk yarn that I handspun on my Ashford Traditional spinningwheel. I have added handspun Mohair yarn to his mane and tail. He has been filled with soft Merino fleece. He is exceptionally soft because of the camel silk:)
White Lion of the Timbavati Region in South Africa:
These lions are the most beautiful creatures, I just had to make one. I have knitted him in an undyed, natural Merino handspun yarn and he is filled with soft Merino fleece.
Two Ply Merino Yarn:
I hand dyed this soft Merino yarn into the most vibrant pink shade…

To enter this giveaway:

Please would you follow my blog.
Please leave a comment:)
For 3 more entries to win, share the giveaway on Facebook, Twitter or blog about it and remember to let me know in the comments so I can enter you 3 more times:)

The winner will be chosen next Thursday evening South African time:)

It is such a joy to share this giveaway with all of you:)
Much  love
