Meltdown Monday Giveaway

Welcome to Meltdown Monday! Today's giveaway is coming from the talented Stephanie. Stephanie can be found blogging about food and knits over at her blog, Homely Homegrown. She doesn't have a shop but she has won a couple of giveaways here and wanted to be able to share something, too. So, let's meet Stephanie!

This Cosy Life- Hi, Stephanie, and welcome to Meltdown Monday! Tell us a little about yourself so we can know the person behind the work.

Stephanie-I love to knit toys for my 2 year old daughter! I have discovered how quick and fun it is and have learned some great new techniques this way. Fruit and veggies for the play kitchen are a recent favorite. I usually knit with wool.

This Cosy Life- What inspires your creations?

Stephanie- Fun and whimsy. I like to browse Ravelry for things that catch my eye and make me say "Oooh how fun!".

This Cosy Life- How do you balance 'making' with mothering?

Stephanie- I always have a project (or two or three) on the needles and I just knit in whatever spare minutes I can. Knitting takes a backseat, but I love to create when I have a quiet moment.

This Cosy Life- Thank you so much for for joining us for Meltdown Monday!

Today Stephanie is offering one more slice of summer with this sweet, hand knit watermelon.

OK, so to enter leave me a comment. You can let me know how your Monday is going or, better yet, tell me how you beat the dreadful Meltdown Monday or just say hi. Whatever.
