Another Giveaway....and It is MINE!

April is my 1 year blogging anniversary month, and should be the month when I reach my 100th post. I am going to celebrate this “Double Whammy” by having a small giveaway. I think I mentioned before that I would be giving away the cottage stitchery I made some time ago. I finished it as a small (13+ inch square) mini quilt. As usual the picture is lousy. I think it looks better than this.

I am also going to include a small pincushion,
and some embroidery floss.


I don’t know if I am using the proper etiquette for a giveaway, but this is what I am doing. Most bloggers are looking for increased traffic to their blog when they do a giveaway. I am not. This time I don’t want anyone to post about this giveaway on your blog. Don’t get me wrong. It tickles me to death to have a new person comment on my blog, but this giveaway is more of a reward for the ladies that have commented on my blog with some frequency. I have appreciated your interest in my blog and feel that you are my blogging friends. Anyone that comments on my blog during the month of April is in the running. This might include a few new visitors, but I doubt there will be many of those. There are a couple of names I have included that have not commented this month, but there were good reasons why they couldn’t, so they are in the draw with one entry. You will have one entry for each comment you have made during April. I am going to use the number generator thingy to choose a winner on the first of May. As forgetful as I am I better make that “around” the first of May. LOL. For someone who doesn’t talk or type much, this post is getting rather long. The End.

A lovely give away Lilly. You are right. I like the way you are having yours. That is what I am going to do next time I have a give away.

I´ve been looking forward to your give away Lilly - I simply love the pincushion and of course the rest of the lovely stuff too!
I find it quite nice you writing a bit more than usual - maybe it will happen again soon?

I have commented on you beautiful works of art more than anyone else. That means you should pick me! Your wonderful works are lovely to behold! Your favorite sister Kathy. By the way are relatives not allowed in the drawing? If not, forget everything I said above!:)

Catherine said...

What a wonderful giveaway! I like the way you're conducting this. Like chookyblue, I tend to stay away from the ones that want one to post about their giveaways and do other things to earn more chances.

Maria said...

LOL!!! Dear Lilly. You are so right, the picture of the bag is not there, but the reason is that I might use it for an pattern/tutorial in the Danish Patchwork Guilts members magasine later on this year. And then it has to be brand new! Have a lovely week-end.

I found your blog while poking around on Myra's blog.
Just wanted to let you know that I visited. The bunnies are just as cute as can be!

Congrats on your one year blog, Lilly. I don't know if you have the same experiences as I have, but I find that it is not always easy to keep one's blog going. It is hard to keep up with all the other blogs but I do hope you will continue to be part of this virtual community a second year.

Teresa said...

Sounds like a great way to do your give away to me. Your stitchery are always so pretty, I would surely love to win one.

GeeGee said...

I enjoy visiting your blog, you make such pretty stitchery & crafty items. Your little bunnies are darling and will make a lovely wall hanging. Love your pin cushions, would be a nice addition to my collection. Keep up the good work!
