3 years a Blogger - 2 GIVEAWAYS!!!!!

So much has changed since I made that first blog post 3 years ago, it took me ages to pluck up the courage to hit the publish button and I wondered if anybody would read it? Would people follow me!! Oh the pressure and all I wanted to do was share my makes, as I had no friends that liked knitting or handmade stuff.
I didn't really have any grand plan with how the blog would be and I think it has changed and evolved with me and my making, moving from just crochet and knitting to a lot of sewing and quilting and still a bit of knitting.
I think I pretty much blog as I speak, which may not create the best grammar or flow to a post, but it is just how the jumble of words come out of my mouth/fingers and get onto the page in the short space of time the children/house/job/cleaning/oh and sewing gives me!
I made loads of things, some have been shockingly bad and some have been really shockingly good, I've made clothes that I actually love wearing out and have had some lovely comments on.
I've been inspired to try, make and do so many different things by this lovely blogosphere and more importantly I feel like I have made some real friends, some that I have had the pleasure to meet at FQR and some that I would love to meet, but for now email will have to do.
So, anyway, what is a blogiversary without a giveaway!! I am offering you lovely lot, for sticking around here listening and commenting on my waffled posts the choice from two prizes.
drum roll please……….
No.1
This months copy of Love Quilting & Patchwork Magazine
 And these  f8th's.

Or No.2
A handmade cushion, made by me.
Now I might be slightly bonkers, but I've loved seeing the recent spell of handmade giveaways, so I was going to let the winner pick a cushion for me to make from any of the ones I've churned out over the years, heres a small selection of them or you can hit the Cushion tag to see more!!
I've made quite a few!

Of course, you could say, they are rubbish and can you make me one like this……… giving me some guidelines of size, theme and colours and I'll try and make you one to your description!!!!! 

To Enter 
For one entry all you have to do is leave a comment telling me which prize you'd like, supplies or handmade and if it's the handmade one, which cushion you would like.

For a second entry, leave me another comment letting me know your a Follower old or new I don't mind, just let me know how you follow,
either by Google Friend over there
or Bloglovin here
or by email 
or by another blog reader?!?

So, two chances to win. I will post anywhere in the world that has an address, just please please please make sure I can contact you with an email (if you are a no-reply blogger it can be really hard to track people down, if you don't get replies from any comments you leave here, you might be a no-replier, as I always try and email a reply to comments!!)

I'll leave it open until 1pm next Tuesday, the 30th September 2014 (UK time), good luck and thanks for sticking around for the last few years!

✼ ✼ ✼ GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED!!  ✼ ✼ ✼

  10. Very nice to read a post from you and I think you are VERY creative (all the things you made!!). I was a follower already and I am a fellow blogger :) If I would be so lucky to win something (what are the odds) I would prefer the fabrics (a dolls maker always loves that!) they look so beautiful! What I also love are the Antarctic cushions :) Warm greetings, Annasoer ;)

I am a new follower--as I am just doing quilt google searches and am finding interesting quilting blogs in a serendipity style. I am, therefore, a new follower. Although I would dearly love to win one of your cushion delights (#8), I think I'd choose the other prize as it would give me some instruction and fabrics to try out! thanks for a chance to win! kmassman gmail

  67. I would love the handmade gift and if you are feeling really generous something like one of your cross-stitched ones, like the granny square Super Stitched or the Whistle while you Work birdie, since I don't know how to do cross-stitching, but I realize those are really, really time consuming so I also adore your Little Apples Spring Carnival Cushion, so cute like it is or in a rainbow of colors.
