While we were out at our local craft / stationery shop I bought a few mounted painting boards and some acrylic paints for our children to paint with. I thought it would be a lovely idea for them to sit outside in the garden and paint with inspiration from their surroundings… I love what they came up with. They took their time and really enjoyed the process adding in tiny details to their blank canvas…

I have also started saving seeds for our next planting season, these pumpkins were so sweet and delicious and can’t wait to plant them next year…

Mamma4earth Giveaway

Hello everyone, from a cold and rainy South Africa! Our weather has really been strange lately, usually by this time of year, it is cold and dry but we are experiencing rain. I am not complaining though, it’s wonderful for the veggies.

I thought today would be a great day for a giveaway, I am giving away 2 patterns to one reader. All you have to do is leave a comment to enter:) Comments will close on Wednesday evening South African time and I will email the patterns through to the winner. Please leave me a contact email and do check back to see if you have won.
To see more of my patterns you can visit my Mamma4earth shop.
Thanks for the visit!
xo Linda

Congratulations to:
Β Rachel
It has been raining like crazy here too. I’d say it would be great for my veggie garden excepting I haven’t planted it yet! The rain needs to let up some. πŸ˜€
Fabulous giveaway. I’m excited for the winner. I was thinking the other day that your book should be coming out soon!??? I hope!?

    I adore your designs and will keep my fingers crossed. Thanks for the chance!

    Here in Florida, it’s weirdly cool today. We’ve had the air conditioning on for more than a month. But yesterday we opened the windows and wow! It’s gorgeous out! It’ll be back in the 90s by the end of the week, though.

  17. Crystal May 17, 2011 at 4:33 pm #

    Oh, I entered the last time you gave away the unicorn, and I didn’t win – maybe this time!! And the giraffe is wonderful!

  18. Kate May 17, 2011 at 6:26 pm #

    Love these patterns to bits – drooling over the unicorn got me signed up to you in the first place, and the giraffe reminds me of the April Fools prank that Wingham Wools played on their mailing list this year – giraffe fibre for spinning, comes out in giraffe pattern… well it amused me!

  19. justjenn May 17, 2011 at 6:51 pm #

    I would love to knit either one of these lovely patterns. We know a bunch of babies who will enter the world this year — these would make great gifts for them.

  20. pands May 17, 2011 at 6:56 pm #
