Giveaway - Celebrating 100!

Saturday, December 4, 2010

It's Giveaway time to celebrate my 100th post. 

I've so much enjoyed my blogging experience and have made so many lovely friends - most of whom I've never met, but feel I've known for years!

I have put together two little parcels as prizes.  The first prize will be a Spring Showers Cushion cover, a Mug Bag and a gorgeous antique Christmas panel (plus a couple of other bits and pieces):

And second prize will be a Vintage Christmas Pudding wall-hanging, Heart Scissor Keep Kit and an Enchanted Garden Pincushion:

To enter the competition, leave a comment telling me what five things you would like to receive (as in the 12 Days of Christmas song) instead of  5 Golden Rings. Or maybe you'd really like the five Golden Rings, so that's OK too!!!

Of course, I'd like other crafters around the world to get to know about my work, so it will be the usual deal 
* If you're a follower (or become a follower), leave another comment to tell me that, for a second entry.
* And if you mention the giveaway on your blog, leave me another comment to let me know that, for a third entry.  Feel free to use the 1st Prize Giveaway photo above in your post if you like. 

Entries close on Friday December 17th at midnight (Australian Eastern Standard Time) and the competition is open to anyone, no matter where in the world you live.

The "To Do" list actually seemed to reduce this week!  Most weeks lately all I've done is add more jobs to do!  I managed to get seven Christmas presents made.  Can't show you them yet as some of the recipients actually read my blog!

Handmade Magazine featured a couple of my projects this month.  Here is the Vintage Christmas Pudding:

It features a recipe that has been handed down through at least four generations of our family.  It would not be Christmas for us if we didn't have this fabulous Christmas Pudding served after a traditional Roast Turkey!  The pattern is available for purchase on my website here if you don't have access to our lovely Australian magazine.

How are you going with purchasing/making/thinking about Christmas presents?

Christine is well and truly organised and has made these:

Aren't they just gorgeous?  The free pattern is available from this page on my website. They are quite quick to whip up, so you might be able to solve some of your Christmas giving with this design.

We had a great time being proud grandparents again at the Awards functions last week. This week we will be travelling to attend my niece's wedding.  We are really catching up on lots of family events at the moment; we're making up fast for being away for so long!  LOVE it!
