GIVEAWAY!!! Goodies from Portsmouth!

During Hubby’s time off we were able to unexpectedly get away for a couple of nights to Portsmouth.  For those of you who haven’t been there, there is the Harbour with a lot of sailing boats and also military boats


and the Historic Dockyard with old boats such as the Mary Rose and Victory to view/tour,


museums and boat tours.  We had a one year all inclusive ticket a couple of years ago and loved it there so much that we decided to return.

We didn’t do the Historic bit this time but instead we went up the Spinnaker Tower


where we enjoyed the views,



had coffee ad 105 metres,


and walked, crawled, lay and jumped on the glass floor!!

We also ate loads of lovely food, opting for a large late breakfast and missing lunch.

A day trip to the Isle of Wight was also amazing, on arrival we alighted at the far end of this long pier


we had fun on the beach



and ate more food!!

Another big attraction is the Gunwharf Quays Outlet shopping Mall.  This is a large outlet mall with lots of designer shops. I think Abi enjoys that bit the most and Josh the least and this is the one place where Hubby will actually shop! Anyway, there is a Cath Kidston shop there plus other great shops so I came back with some goodies, not just for myself but to share with you.

There are two giveaways.  One for the yarn lovers and the other for the sewers!

Firstly the yarny one. I bought myself this book


and loved it so much that I went back the next day for one to give away.  There is also this Cath Kidston fabric ‘project basket’


and two balls of Debbie Bliss yarn.

For those of you who prefer sewing there is a half metre of this Cath Kidston fabric,


this pack of five Kirsty Allsopp fat quarters


and some pretty buttons.


There will also be a little surprise in each one.

So many of you are cat lovers so I have decided that to win you need to think of a name for a cat, bearing in mind that Josh will choose his two favourites for the winners!  If you haven’t been with me for long then check out thisthis and this post to get an insight into Josh’s character.   Just leave a comment to say which giveaway you would like to enter and the cat name of your choice.  If you follow my blog (it doesn’t matter how recently) if you leave a second message I will enter you a second time or else enter you for both, whichever you prefer!

Have fun coming up with a name!! he Giveaway will run  from Saturday 22nd August until Tuesday 1st September.  🙂

Happy Crafting

  1. Wow how kind of you! What super prizes. Lovely photos , too – wow lovely big breakfasts!! I have been to surrounding towns – Bournemouth, Weymouth, Southampton – but never Portsmouth!
    I would of course love to enter the sewing giveaway. My entry is Shadow. I love that name for a cat! 🙂


  2. Entry #2: I have to vote for Squish as a perfect cat name, because that’s the name that came up to me when I saw my furry baby for the first time – he was so cute I just wanted to squish him (in a good way, of course) 😀

  3. My daughter went to Uni at Portsmouth so we occasionally used to go out to Gunwharf Quays. I would like to enter the yarn giveaway and propose the name “Whiskers” in recognition of the mess made by Josh with the whisk!
