Say it with Flowers Blog Hop and MIHO Unexpected Things Giveaway

Welcome to my stop of the Say it with Flowers Blog Hop. First of all I would like to thank Madame Samm at Sew We Quilt for organising this fantastic blog hop and giving me the chance to join. A big thank you also to Carol Swift from Just Let Me Quilt, our cheerleader, for all her help and incredible patience!

For this special event, MIHO UNEXPECTED THINGS is sponsoring my giveaway and, of course it has to do with flowers! Read on to find out more about the giveaway.

For my project I couldn't resist using some beautiful fabric from Moda I had been saving for a special occasion, Papillon by 3 Sisters:


It's a while I've had this project in mind but never got round to making it. Thanks to this blog hop I finally got to work and this is what I came up with - my jewellery holder.


I've hung it up in the walk-in closet and it looks good and is also useful, don't you think? With six pockets, all made with different fabrics from the same Moda collection, it's a special way of tidying up and showing off my favourite jewellery!


Here are some details. I love using linen, it doesn't steal the scene from other fabrics, especially these delicate coloured flowers.


My second flower project is this decoration I made for the front door using Tapestry by Joanna Figueroa, Fig Tree & Co. for Moda. My friend Cinzia Angelina is patiently trying to teach me to crochet. I am very (very) slowly improving!


I am super pleased to have the opportunity of giving away one of MIHO UNEXPECTED THINGS products to a lucky winner. MIHO has in fact offered one of their beautiful (and useful!) boxes especially for the Say it with Flowers Blog Hop.


and this is the box chosen for the giveaway:


Don't you just love it? There are flowers, of course! Please leave a comment to have a chance of winning this stunning box. I will post the prize internationally, anywhere the post office lets me! The lucky winner will receive this flat pack with really simple (and fast) instructions for putting the box together. 



Thank you for visiting and don't forget to leave a comment to have a chance of winning the fantastic MIHO UNEXPECTED THINGS giveaway!

GIVEAWAY CLOSED

    1. The crochet flowers are from Eline Pellinkhof's book "Stitch and Sew Home", the Gerbera pattern. They are really easy to make, that's why I managed!
