tickets to country living christmas fair to give away

by izabela

as an exhibitor (my first that big event) I got few complimentary tickets to give away to my friends and customers, few went to friends, few to customers and I thought that maybe some of you would like to go and see how things work or just go and browse for gifts or gifts ideas, The Country Living Christmas Fair takes place in Business Design Centre in Islington from 30th October until 3rd November, the tickets are to be used any day but Saturday (2nd November)

Country LIving Christmas Fair

so if you would like to visit the fair on wednesday, thursday, friday or sunday please leave a comment under this post and spread the world, the more people know – the better 🙂

there is a chance to have more than one entry, but you need to share it on your blog, fb page or twitter and to make sure i have seen it you can use tag #izabelamotyl on twitter, or send me a message with the link to your blog post (fb posts are a mystery to me, but you can try to tag me too @izabela motyl 🙂 or share it with me on pm)

i will have a little draw on sunday 20th october, no idea what time, so let’s say you have time until end of saturday, some late entries may also be considered 🙂

have a lovely weekend and a very creative week

i am really, really sorry for such late post with my winners

but i had my mum staying with me for the weekend and i didn’t expect that this will take all my free time

such a shame she left now, would like to keep her longer here – maybe next time



i loved all your answers and guesses, there wasn’t one 100% hit with a guess but a lot of guesses were really close

anyway i said that is only a fun game to try to guess as this could really be anything 🙂

this is very christmas color indeed and pattern as well

little red trees

this may make a lovely christmas gift for a female friend or family member

it isn’t finished yet

but this is going to be a warm cowl or neck-warmer

made from blend of extra fine merino, acrylic microfibre and cashmere

very very soft



and as there was two different kind of guesses

  • very close guesses
  • just guesses

i thought that i draw two from the first box

and one from the second box



Kitschy Coo


and Aimee


visit my folksy shop

here you can find all the different earrings patterns

choose one and let me know in what color would you like it made…


i am off to contact you about the details


thank you all for taking part in this little game

i hope you all enjoyed

and i see you next time 🙂

try to guess what i am making and win some lovely earrings…

by izabela

can someone stop my head and new ideas? i so would like to focus on some designs i already know and write them down,

but this is so time taking, i am amazed by all the designers having their designs published,

how they do it i don’t know

my first proper pattern is almost written down…



anyway, just did a little shopping lovely wool and cotton

i think my wool madness just came back 🙂

just started something new

and just had an idea

if you want to play a little game here on my blog,

you will be able to win a pair of earrings made for you in your chosen color

there will be three pairs of earrings to win…


and the question is

what i am making from this lovely red wool?

there is a week to try to answer it…

i will announce winners next saturday, but you can still post your answers and guesses and you can give as many answers as you like

each additional guess counts as separate vote



three closest answers are the winning ones 🙂

the time is until mid day 23rd of october (12 o’clock, london time)

so off you go and tell all your friends…

all the right answers will take part in a draw saturday afternoon

good luck to all 🙂

>i just wanted to show you all how my desk looks this week, I didn’t have time for nothing but work so everything landed on the side, more and more each day…

working on granny squares, finishing shawl and mittens and some gardening, just no time left for nothing else…

and just started my newest commission Red Lacy top in bright red

oh and last thing, my boy is really an artist, he just won The Easter Art competition in his year at school isn’t it pretty? have a look yourself

>I just decided to take part in the competition on Folksy and do something to help raise money for Sue Ryder Care…

I can tell you why I love this project – we have to make something from second hand finds which makes it all very exciting… and then there will be judging time and then auction…

all the details for the competition you can find here, but here is the other most exciting part:

Entries will be judged on the following criteria and a winner will be awarded in the following ‘categories’:
  • 1. most innovative piece
  • 2. quality of craft work / ‘craftsmanship’
  • 3. best use of materials
  • 4. ‘appeal’ which kinda means playfulness / fun
  • 5. people’s choice – your favourite items as chosen by number of favourites the item receives on Folksy!

There will be a winner chosen from each of the categories. Winners get to showcase their portfolio in the Sue Ryder Care Camden store for one month from the middle of Jan to the middle of Feb in a specially constructed Folksy set. This store is being refurbished over Christmas and will come back in the New Year as a wonderful space to exhibit your work.

so keep watching this space as I have a little idea what I am going to make but just need to find the right t-shirt in a local charity shop…

oh and if you are on Folksy you will be able to vote for your favorite entry, check them out here
