Sew Hayley Jane Giveaway Winner

karen and ella in brighton

The winner is Olivia – congratulations! A box shall wing its way to you in January.

In the meantime, I have family coming to stay, beds to make, cakes to ice (anyone know where the heck in London a person can track down glycerine?!), a turkey to get out of the freezer … and a lot of thanks to give.

I was so busy speaking quickly in my vlog that I forgot to say a proper Happy Holidays to you. May we all stay warm, safe and happy over the next few days. And if you’re one of the people who feels isolated, excluded, afraid or grieving over this festive period, know that you’re not alone. You are never alone.

We’re all in this together! Isn’t that right, Ella?

    Thank you, Karen. I’m in the US and it’s been a really hard year. I think we all have been trying, in our own ways, to keep the peace and to ask for peace for these last days of the year. Happy Christmas to you and yours, and to cutie dog and her buds.

    Karen, enjoy your holidays, and thanks so much for your blog! All the best to you, Ella and yours in 2018.

  11. I think that you can get glycerine from the Chemists, if you have one of those old fashioned ones that sell all manner of things close by. Have a wonderful holiday and all the best for 2018. P.S. Ella and her friend are so cute.. Xx

    I’m so excited, I am someone who never wins raffle prizes so thank you very much! The news made a dark day much brighter. It will be lovely to have a surprise in the New Year, and I’m planning to set aside time each week to get sewing, December has been too busy and I’ve really missed it.
