It's Giveaway Time.

As promised in my last post, here is my 2nd blogging anniversary giveaway. It would be great if there were a good number of entries to make it an exciting draw, so if you normally just pop in for a look, why not leave a comment as well and introduce yourself. I'm never sure how many people actually do visit. The only indication I have is the number of photo views in Picasa.
Here's what I'm offering as one package:
1. Crocheted Bag. I made this bag a while ago out of curiousity to see how the pattern would come out. I don't really need another bag so it's just hanging around and it seems only right to give it away and hope someone will get some good use from it.

2 & 3. Tree friendly choccie and a bar of glycerine soap. Just because it's nice to have a treat once in a while!
4. A handmade brooch. I made this brooch especially for the giveaway out of felted wool and thrifted buttons. I've got a feeling the clasp on the back is up-side-down and back-to-front (because I'm left-handed) but it still works perfectly well. It has some craft-weight interfacing inside for a bit of stability.
Dresden Plate block partially finished with the correct centre replacing the brooch.
All you need to do is leave a comment on this post about anything you like. I will pick a winner at random in a couple of weeks (I know I won't have time next week!) on the 30th April then contact the winner and announce it in a post as soon as I can after that. I'll post to anywhere seeing as I have such lovely readers in faraway places. Good luck!! :-)
And while we're on the subject of giveaways, Steel Kitten is running one for this interesting looking book. I'm mentioning here to get a second entry so I'm off now to leave a comment to qualify!!
Bye for now

Congratulations, Teresa!

I was not sure whether to enter this giveaway or not, as I have already won a gift from you (It might probably reach me in the beginning of May!)

but you know that bag?!?
it is THAT BAG, what caused me to enter ;D !!!
it looks soooooooo lovely!

BTW - wouldn't you like to get Google analytics to learn about your visitors, it is not so complicated (as I thought earlier)

I came across your blog via Elizabeth at Making Good Use. A lovely find, I shall visit from New Zealand regularly.

Congratulations on your second blog birthday!

I love our crocheted bag. I made this pattern (Inga's haekelbeutel) twice but gave away one as a gift and the other as a raffle prize, so I would love to win a bag for myself :)

I'm late but I want to enter! Or do I live too far? If so that is fine. I do enjoy seeing all the creative things you are up to! ~Leslie
