Well, nearly there! Tomorrow (Sunday 28th) my latest book - the Ganutell Country Flowers Handbook - will be released.
The launch will include a show on Create & Craft tv on Sunday at 3pm - a great way to see some of the techniques in action. There will also be a giveaway for viewers who email in to the show - a little heartease brooch, so do email in!
As part of the launch I am currently running a giveaway over on my Facebook page - all you have to do is comment on the image and tag one of your friends to be entered. I'll be giving away the wood violet brooch shown below. The draw will take place on July 12th, so do visit the page and take part!
(Please note that this draw is in no way affiliated with Facebook)
We're also going to be giving free UK post and packing on the book sales for a limited time - effectively £3.50 off. This amount will be discounted at checkout -even for those of you outside of the UK.
So, a bit more about the handbook - it is A5 and spiral bound so it can lie flat on your table as you work.
There are instructions for ways to make 20 different petals, leaves and centres using traditional passementerie techniques. These techniques are then brought together in the projects section with clear and concise instructions to create 16 beautiful flowers inspired by the English countryside.
Flowers included are : Dog Rose, Tulip, Crocus, Pheasant's Eye, Celandine, Ox Eye Daisy, Primrose, Hellebore, Flax, Wood Violet, Heartsease, Field Poppy, Bluebell, Small Daffodil, Iris and Cornflower.
