Creative Friday and a Giveaway

Farm Animals

Farm Animals PDF E-Book

Hello friends,

Can you believe it’s Friday already? I can’t wait for tomorrow because Richard is arriving home from France, he’s only been gone since Sunday but I miss him and it feels like it’s been ages since I’ve seen him!

Welcome to Creative Friday,

Please feel free to post your links to anything you have created and would like to share, it can be a recipe, sewing tutorial, knitting tutorial, felting, crochet, crafts, art, spinning, weaving, working with fibre, photography, poetry…etc…

I have added a Creative Friday button on the sidebar of my blog, please feel free to add it to your blog for Creative Friday and link it to so others can find this space and share their creativity too:)

1. I have started a Creative Friday Flickr Group where you can post your beautiful photos that you link to each Creative Friday. To join the group, please go here.

2. If you would be so kind as to link back to Natural Suburbia in your blog post that would be lovely or pin, share on Facebook and Twitter


I compiled a little pdf e-book of my knitted animal patterns and I would like to offer one as a giveaway! It consists of the seven patterns featured in the above photo and a finishing tutorial.
To enter please leave a comment and to earn extra entries you can share on Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest and remember to let me know here each time you share by leaving an extra comment:)

I’ll announce the winner here on Monday.

Congratulations to:
Gracey! I will email your e-book through to you:)

The E-book can be downloaded on my Etsy shop if you would like to purchase it.

    LOVE the giveaway. Thank you.
    It is so refreshing to find a couple who actually miss each other when they are apart. Being apart of a thread on FB between you and Richard, put a smile on my face. Sounded like he missed you so much, too. Lovely.

    I love all of your animals but if that is a Holstein cow I have to win it! My husband and I are both originally from Wisconsin (the dairy state) where the Holstein is the most popular dairy cow. The area Richard is from was settled largely by German immigrants and my husband went to high school at New Holstein High.

  54. Joanne July 13, 2013 at 8:03 am #

    It has been a wonderful Friday. I spent the day organizing my yarn stash and found goodies that I had forgotten that I had. Brings smiles quite easily. Found some WIPS that I had forgotten where I put them. Brings smiles and joy as well. There were all the circs that I knew I had!

    Love your gorgeous realistic animals. What a wonderful giveaway! Sooooo nice. 🙂

  55. Sarah July 13, 2013 at 8:49 am #

    My husband works in Angola and is due home on Tuesday night – we are all so excited too. I am sure our sausage dog has a six sense when he is due to come home. She has such an amazing bond with him. Would love to knit the animals for our playgroup at the Waldorf school our children attend in Cape Town.

  56. Joanne July 13, 2013 at 10:44 am #

    I pinned some of your delightful knitted animal pictures on my ‘knitting’ Pinterest board.
