Giveaway Giveaway Giveaway Giveaway

Searching the sites for an interesting    Giveaway    I realized just how exciting they could be, and how they bring new friends together (I love looking up the comments and checking back to see the sites of whoever made them, don't you?).  So ... I decided to have one of my own ... But what to giveaway? And how? And this is what I have decided ...

I would like to  giveaway  the lovely book:

Lesley Stanfield - 100 Flowers To Knit And Crochet


Lovely Prize Book To Inspire You To Knit And Crochet

It is an utterly charming book and  full of quick and easy crochet and knitted flowers ... with lots of projects suitable for all levels. I will also include a little extra craft related  'surprise'  from London for the winner!

And this is what you must do for a chance to win it ... each of the following gives you a chance (ie. you could have  five chances  to win ... PLEASE ... post a separate comment for each of the following - one to cover the lot will not do as each number will individually 'go into the hat' ... or ... 'the random number generator'.    SO DO ONE OR ALL OF THE FOLLOWING   ...

1. Post me a comment here and tell me what you will do with the pretty flowers once they are made.

2. Sign up as a follower.

3. Blog about the competition on your site and post a link to my site, and let me know that you have done so.

4.  Tell me which of my postings is the most interesting and why, (this will help me  with my new site as I will get to know what really interests people from the crafting community).

5. Tell me about your favourite blog and why I should want to follow it.


Be sure and leave me an email address to contact you if you are the lucky winner.
Competition closes at midnight (UK time) Monday September 6th 2010.

NOW CLOSED.

  13. I would have to use the flowers as decoration on all the charity hats I make for our local hospital and the Cancer Center. I think they would brighten up anybodys day.

  14. Okay I think I would have to say that the post about your Matryoshka Doll would be my favorite. I have always wanted to make dolls but the arms and legs gave me fits, this style I enjoy because I can use all the lace or buttons I want. I have MS and being confined to a wheelchair has really slowed me down but you have really given me energy. Thanks so much.

  22. Anna, I don't crochet but I would gift the magazine to a dear friend who does, after I studied the photos and was inspired for wonky flower quilts of my own. Watch out, it is easy to get hooked on the giveaways because it makes you feel so good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I like lots of your posts especially as we appear to visit the same places, like Monmouth, Borough, Petersham Nurseries, Cath Kidson........ I have you on my blog list and will sign up to follow. Have a great week!

  37. This is the first giveaway I have ever entered and only just by the skin of my teeth too! I have recently learned how to knit gloves and think some pretty crocheted flowers would liven them up a treat as well as disguising my less than perfect knitting!
