Giveaway - 500th

Whodda thunk it -  I've reached posting #500. I am surprised my blog has lasted this long :) So to celebrate I'm doing a VERY SIMPLE giveaway.
The drawings will be done on Monday 14th June in the afternoon.
Instead of one big drawing I'm doing 5 mini drawings.
Leave a comment indicating which # you are interested in.
For the ever increasing no-reply bloggers please leave a way to contact you if you are one of the winners. (I will ship internationally.)

#1 "Birds in Tree" mini pillow made by myself 2010.

#2 Snowman Christmas ornament made by myself 2009.

#3 Two cardboard quilt templates. New.

#4 "Top it With a Runner" quilt book. Great designs, gorgeous photographs. Never used.


#5 Two 1yd. pieces of fabric. Bought from Sew Mama Sew for this giveaway.

Well, huge congratulations on your 500th posting and hoping you have at least 500 more. What an accomplishment.
If I am one of the lucky winners, I would love the fabric. It just happens to be in my favourite colour - blue.

deserae said...

Great giveaway! I would love any of them, but my favorites are #3 or #5! :)

Joan said...

Congrats on making 500! I'm sort of new at this, and I can't imagine the time and effort it took to get this far. Good on you!
I was a cross stitcher before I got in to quilting, so that lovely pillow (#1) caught my eye on the blog roll. It is lovely.
Regardless of the outcome - congrats and keep on blogging!

Deanna said...

Congratulations on 500 posts! That is amazing. I am up to something like 38. A long ways to go.

The fabric would be my first choice, but the table runner patterns are tempting, too.

Thanks for the offer.

congratulations! I'm not even close to that on my blog! thanks for the celebration give away!

tich said...

500 posts!! Scot's tenacity, that's what it is (from one Scot to another)!! My table in my kitchen is crying out for a table topper, but I haven't got round to it (in three years). It would help if I had a pattern, but even better, I could read No. 5 (the book), with a cup of tea and a (big) bit of chocolate, and I would be on my way!! Thanks for the opportunity!

tich said...

Eek! I was so excited, I put the wrong number. I meant No.4 - the book. Sorry!

omashee aka Barb said...

Congratulations Carol, on your 500th post and such a wonderful blog! Your work is amazing!

My first choice would be #1. Your pillow lovely. Second choice would be #4 as I plan to make some new runners for myself and for gifts this year.

Thank you for this wonderful opportunity. Wishing you many many more years of stitching & blogging.

Kerry said...

What a lovely giveaway!!! Congratulations on your 500th post!

I would love to enter, and if I would be the lucky winner, I would chose #1, the little pillow. Stitched pieces are always the best, because they remind you to the person who stitched it.

Best wishes and at least another 500!
