Instagram and a chance to win a set of buttons

Technology is progressing faster than I can cope with. I hear everyone talking about Instagram. I had to investigate it. With a lot of help from Margaret (www.asamplerofstitches.blogspot.com)-- and I mean A LOT of help--I am now on Instagram too. So you can follow me on @yvonnewdesigns.

I have been painting buttons to go with the Room with a View tyriptych that is in the January Homespun magazine.If  anyone would like a chance to win a set of these buttons, please leave me a comment, and your name will be in the draw for them.
These buttons are available through my Etsy shop ( click on the Etsy shop in the side bar) and also from Marilyn's shop-- The Patchwork Teahouse at Warburton in Victoria.

Room with a View triptych -- January Homespun magazine
Buttons include Settler's cottage, birdhouse, blackbird, and 2 x sheep
 
 
The other thing I have been painting are these cute little elephants. These are a new design and I have just painted a few to see what they look like painted.

Dear Yvonne,
the buttons are beautiful and I had a chance to win last time. So this time I do not want to participate in the drawing so others have a chance to enjoy your beautiful buttons.
Greetings,
Sylvia
