I'm so excited to announce my very first Advent Calendar!


It will consist of one of my large patchwork project bags
in Tilda fabrics with prints of birds & roses, dots & stars
in pinks and reds.

Inside the bag there will be twenty four gifts
perfect for knitters and crocheters


A little teaser of some of the gifts ~


100g of beautiful sock yarn
dyed especially for Sew Sweet Violet (that's me!)
by the super fabulous Tracy
(This yarn is heartbreakingly beautiful in my humble opinion)


 A matching notions pouch, lavender sachets & notions made by me.


I really REALLY want to spill the beans and tell you everything!!!
It's so hard to behave myself with this.

There will be the sweetest and also very useful notions.

There is a bit of a rose Gold colour theme too!

Oh and there might be a couple of sumptuous organic body products


I think that's all I can say without spoiling the fun .....


I'm planning on posting them all out by the end of October
so that you'll have them in good time for the 1st December.




I'll be adding Pre~Orders to my Etsy shop on .....

Friday 28th July at 6pm
and
Tuesday 1st August at 10am

I will also be adding more during the week 
31st July ~ 6th August
these will be added here and there as surprise listings.


Postage ~ I post worldwide and they will be sent .....
Uk ~ First class 'Signed'
Worldwide ~'Tracked and signed'


I hope that all makes sense
I also hope you are excited like me!


Wishing you all a beautiful, healthy and crafty time
until I see you next


BIG love

Sew Sweet Violet Podcast ..... Episode 17



Hello my lovely friends

x x x





Here are my show notes for Episode Seventeen



I did have rather a lot of technical difficulties with this episode
and it did make me want to hit myself on the head with a hammer
(A LOT)
So please excuse the lack of syncing between voice and video
and any weird focusing noises
Hopefully I'll have things running more smoothly next time .....
fingers crossed!
