PW2 {giveaway} CHD:crochet crush

who's enjoying party week?? sick of me yet? ;)

here is another giveaway i'm really excited about, this time by my real-life, just-down-the-road friend, Cait from CHD.

what i am passionate about is supporting creative businesses of stay-at-home mums and Cait oozes creativity.
how creative?
how about creative enough to design and write her own pattern for crocheted russian nesting dolls that actually stack! how about creative enough to design and write her own pattern for a crocheted set of stuffed nesting dolls!

my mind is blown. yours?

Cait's finish and attention to detail is impeccable.

and here's what she is generously giving away:

{one amigurumi style stuffed nesting doll}
{one crochet pattern OF YOUR CHOICE}

details: the doll will be like the one pictured (although colours may vary slightly) and stands alone at approx 11cm tall.
the pattern must be selected from the CHD etsy shop.
