Giveaway!! Now Closed!



Finally, here is my humble giveaway to say Thank You to all my lovely followers and commentors. I can't tell you how much all your comments mean to me. They cheer me so much. When I have felt down or discouraged, your comments have helped me back up. To know that there are people out there even vaguely interested in me or my life or my crafting is such a self esteem booster. Every comment I get makes me smile - big or small - your words mean so much to me. So this is my Thank You back to you guys. You make me sooo happy!

So here is the first prize:

IMG_0672



As you know, I have started a bit of crochet and I thought for part of the giveaway I would make some facecloths. The white and cream ones are 100% cotton and the green one is 85% cotton and 15% kapok (whatever that is). They are soft to the touch and super absorbant. I made one for SD and she said it was lovely to use. Included, is a bar of The Body Shop soap in Shea Butter fragrance.

The next part is some charts from my stash. Some I have stitched. Some are brand new.

From left to right - Beardie Designs' Winter Pocket, The Sampler Girl's Northanger Abbey, Periphaeria Design's Ring o' Roses Biscornu

IMG_0668

From left to right: Hester's Needle Anne Austin Sampler, Prairie Schooler's Cranberry Christmas, My Mark's Harriet's Diamonds, Blackbird Designs Autumn Song, Blackbird Designs Beneath the Sunlit Sky (includes the RnR Reproductions linen in 28ct in Sea Fog colour to stitch the project on) bonus!.

You will also get two skeins of hand dyed thread which someone very kindly raked me with but have no uses for it so thought it would be good to pass it on to someone creative, a Yankee Candle car air freshener in cinnamon - this is amazing. It smells like gingerbread latte to me! Oh yeah and you also get some chocolate too.

How's that sound??

So for a runner up prize or if you don't happen to stitch and you win and would prefer this prize:

IMG_0673

You get 3 lovingly created facecloths and a Body Shop bar of Olive soap. Oh and some chocolate too. :-)

So if you would like to win then I'm going to make it really easy.

1. You must be a follower

2. You must make sure I have access to your email either on the comment or via your profile page

3. Leave ONE comment saying you would like to be entered. If you would prefer the runner up prize ie if you aren't a stitcher then please specify in your comment otherwise you will automatically be entered for the top prize.

That's easy enough. If you wish to spread the love and mention it on your blogs then I would appreciate it but it's not necessary.

There you have it. I hope you like it. Giveaway will close 30th Sept midnight and I will draw 2 winners on 1st October.

What a fantastic giveaway Hazel, I'd love to be included.

Kapok is a fluffy fibre from the sed pods of a tree. I've used it as stuffing for cuddly toys before but I've never seen it as part of a yarn. I guess its a lot like cotton when its spun

Shari said...

Oh, my gosh what a giveaway! :o :o :o

I would love to win even ONE of these fabulous prizes! (I think you should give yourself more credit; you are a very accomplished crafter and keep an interesting blog. :) ) Of course, you know I'm mad for artisan-type soaps, and the cloths make it even better. I've made a few, but they are not so nice as yours!

Thanks so much for the chance to own these goodies!

Thanks for the chance.

Lisa said...

oh Hazel what a lovely giveaway, and I'm sure everyone will agree far too generous, I would be happy with the cloths, soap and the chocs but the charts are so lovely a few that I have been wishing for. I love how fellow stitchers/bloggers help you through some difficult times, I know that i have been cheered up from some of the lovely comments I get when my healths not good. Anyhow I'll stop nattering on and say I'd love to be entered into your draw, and thank you for the chance, good luck everyone
