Bunny Mummy in Print and a Giveaway

Hello Lovelies, 
Yesterday issue 16 of "Simply Crochet" magazine came out in the shops.
 It was such a thrill to see it on the shelf in Morrisons.....I had to photograph it before I picked up my copy :0)

 And when the chatty checkout lady commented on it and asked if I could crochet I had to smile and share my exciting news ...." ummm, yes I can crochet, and ummmm, actually I have a project published in this magazine" I said, blushing slightly as I pointed out my cowl.
"Oh, well that's something to be proud of" she kindly replied and we got chatting about her daughters knitting.

 My cowl is in  a supplement that accompanies this months issue and I thought it would be small, but no,  it's the same size  as the main magazine............


And look what's inside the cover..........My colourful squares much larger than life............


And yet more beautiful images to accompany the pattern...........

 I'm totally thrilled  with how my little project looks here.

 As well as writing the pattern I answered some questions . I hope Simply Crochet wont mind me sharing this part with you lovelies..........

click on the photo to read it more easily.

In the bloggers supplement there are six lovely projects to crochet.The gorgeous floral clutch bag you can see inside the cover is by  Tanya who blogs HERE

And here are the other four projects
Sweet flower Brooches by Rachel who blogs HERE
A happy Shopper Bag by Jules who blogs HERE
A Chunky Scarf by Rachelle who blogs HERE
and A cute Hat Pincushion by Hannah who blogs HERE

I think they are all lovely projects and I've discovered some wonderful blogs that are new to me.

To celebrate this first ever time I've had anything printed Simply Crochet have kindly offered to send two of my lovely readers ( that's you :0)   ) a free  copy of this issue, and what a treat it is .

In the main magazine there are absolutely loads of projects. 
These are some of my favourites.......  


Sweet Butterflies, I love this photo

 I cute Bunny....I should make this :0)


 Awwwww, adorable


 Such a fun make

and, eeeeek, look at this swoon worthy riot of colour...........

I'm so tempted to start this.

As well as patterns there's wonderful inspiration. It's lovely to see Lucy's column going from strength to strength......... 



If you would like the chance to win a copy simply leave me a comment on this post,
 making sure I can contact you if you win. 
Once I have your address I'll pass it onto the lovely people at Simply Crochet who will mail out your copy directly.

At the weekend I spent  a great couple of hours with some old  friends. One of this group  makes wonderful jewellery from polymer clay. We all sat round another friends dining room table experimenting with this clever product.
While my  friends made brooches and necklaces I played around making handles for some  4mm crochet hooks. They are not perfect but I'm actually pretty pleased with how they turned out for a first attempt.



While a simple metal hook suits me I've seen a lot of these hooks around blogland  and I thought you may like the chance to try one, so I'll send one of these off to each of my winners too.

I'll draw two names out of the hat on Sunday, Good Luck!

P.S. Simply crochet also have a special subscription offer HERE too if you are interested 

PLEASE NOTE This Give away is now closed....thank you to everyone who entered.

  1. So nice, to see your own project in a crochet magazine, lovely cowl! My english 's not so very good, so I will wait until I can buy the dutch translation. (For example, I read cow instead of cowl... ;-) ).
    Polymer clay is great stuff to work with, I love your hook-needles! Next week I have to make much beads.

    1. Same here.
      I didn't have a clue what "cowl" means in Dutch, so I looked it up:
      The first and most evident translation= "monnikspij" and after further searching I found "capuchon", I guess it's rather the last word we have to think about :)

  2. Congratulations - how cool is that! Your cowl is beautiful. Love those crochet hook handles, what a fantastic idea. My puppy ate my bamboo hook recently - I'm in the middle of a ripple blanket - so I've been using a metal one and having a hard time of it - it's far more slippy. I think if my hook looked like that I'd like it better!!
    Would love to win a copy of Simply Crochet (can't get it here - or replacement bamboo hooks!)
    Happy hooking from France

    Big congratulations are in order. Up to the next project.

    I have been following you for a long time now, and getting published is just what you deserve. You are SO good and you create so many beautiful things. This simply HAD do happen.

    Along with all the others I am a big candidate for your give away.

    Just like you, I simply adore the flower quilt (aptly called "pick a primrose") At this moment I am also working on a flower-quilt. But I don't know whether I'll ever find the courage to finish it. It takes forever:

  42. So, So happy for you Jacquie, you definitely deserve it. You are one of the nicest bloggers out there, with a fabulous blog and a great heart. I still use the crochet hook holder you made for me when my sister passed and over the years I have always thought of you when using it, so to see your work being published it makes my heart sing. I really hope this is the start of something wonderful. I would love to pick up a magazine and see all your fabulous work and tips every month so that the people outside the land of blog can see how talented you are.
    Oh and your crochet hook handles are very cool and retro :)

  43. Congratulations, that's fantastic, you have every reason to be very proud. I hope I am lucky enough to win, it's a lovely prize.

  54. Congratulations Jacquie I love your blog and could not be more delighted for you. Your cowl is beautiful and I am so pleased for you to have it in print. How lovely to have the chance to tell the lady in the supermarket 'I did that!' and to own your success.

    I bought some Fimo clay a while back to make handles for my hooks but wondered does it stick well to the hook and not become loose and is it more comfy to crochet? My most recent purchase was an illuminated crochet hook which is surprisingly effective especially on dark wools.

  55. What a beautiful cowl and the hooks look great. I wonder if my Morrison's has the magazine... x

  59. You and Lucy, Attic 24 inspired me to learn to crochet, and now I have nearly as much wool as fabric. I aim to take out a subscription to the magazine. Those crochet handles look fun, I have a set of ordinary hooks but may have to buy some fat ones to try.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Congratulations Jacqui on being published! What a lovely reward for your efforts.
    Nothing like a giveaway to inspire lots of comments! It's great - everyone here can explore each others' blogs and so the blogosphere expands with more ideas and new friends. I am looking forward to that as much as seeing the Simply Crochet issue first hand. I have a number of Simply Crochet issues but I don't buy every one due to a very tight budget. I will have to make a special effort to get your issue in my library. Congrats again, and well done!

  71. Hearty Congratulations, Jacquie. Your cowl looks stunning and has been modelled well.
    I am excited to see that a famous magazine encourages bloggers thus. Its quite inspiring. Blogland can be a lonely place and one has to motivate (push) to keep posting specially when you dont know if anyone is reading your stuff at all. I gave up blogging, because I couldnt push myself enough. So cheers to you and all the bloggers out there, who keep going no matter what. You have given me crafts to enjoy and learn. I love your drawings, nature posts, birding etc. Thanks Jacquie.

  72. Congrats!! I love Simply Crochet but here in the US they sell them a few issues behind... I had to special order the Lucy debut issue so I wouldn't have to wait until Christmas, hahaha.

Never thought of doing that with my crochet hook but looks useful and I can understand if its for comfort. Anyway, congrats on your feature :)

I was so lucky today to have found Issue 12 at our Hobby-X expo, now I have Issues 12, 13, 14 and 15, the last three brought back to me in South Africa by friends visiting the UK. I can't afford to buy it here, sooooo .... I would be over the moon if I could win Issue 16 to add to my collection. :) Pat in Johannesburg

  136. Wow must feel great to have your work in the magazine. I would love a chance to win but I don't see how since so many other friends are entered to win but I'll give it a try.

  137. Congratulations on being published! I love your cowl pattern and would love to win a free copy of it. :) How wonderful to be in the same magazine as Lucy's column. I'm a resident of the USA so I don't know if this contest is also available to me. If so, it would be wonderful to win. Have a lovely day!

  139. i was very excited to get the magazine (I always get it anyway) and see your cowl and the endpapers covered in your squares! I felt as if it was a friend of mine with her project in the magazine, and was struck again by the strangeness of blogging, where we all know so much about you x Congratulations Jacqui!

  141. I would love to have a copy of the magazine! I always buy it here in Canada, but it's at least a month behind. This issue will be special with your pattern in it, and Lucy's article too. Thanks, Jacquie!

  142. Eek! How exciting! I'm laid up for a day or two with a knee injury. Do you think Mr Angel Jem would understand if I put Simply Crochet on tomorrow's shopping list? And the clay needles are fab. I have the hooks and the polymer clay. Just the time to find for a fiddle, then....

  144. Well done on being in the mag, I love crocheting, find it easier than knitting at the mo with pain in one of my hands, and love how quickly it grows. Love the hooks you're giving away too.

  149. Great giveaway, Jacquie! I´d LOVE to win it, but I´m a little bit far away: Brazil... I don´t know if you could send it to me. But I´d be so glad, cause here we don´t have this magazine and I´m a huge fan of your work, you know it I guess. :)

  153. It must have been so exciting picking up your copy with your lovely pattern in, and how nice to have a compliment from a stranger before you even got it home! I also love the look of hooks with a polymer handle but have never tried one.
