Three to be precise. Two I've been lucky enough to win, and one I'm giving to celebrate having broken the 200 followers barrier.
My first win was this fantastic little sewing necessaire from Nancy at The Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe
and here it is opened up to show the hand dyed floss, cluny lace and wool felt inside, all in my favourite blue, natural and tan colour combination. The little wool felt pouch contains buttons and charms. I just love it! Go and check out Nancy's blog if you haven't already, she often has the most generous giveaways going on.
My second win was Lia's birthday giveaway at Lia's Handmades. My prize was a gift certificate to a wonderful Etsy fabric shop - Tactile Fabrics, and these are the fabrics I chose.
How wonderful are these?
Thank you Nancy and Lia. I never fail to be amazed by the generosity of fellow bloggers.
Anyway, without further ado, I propose a little giveaway of my own. I can't show any pictures as I aim to make a little something especially for the winner. (I also don't promise you'll get it this side of Christmas but I'll do my best).  If you are a regular reader of this blog you'll know I'm all about geekiness, stitching and upcycling, so the prize will reflect one or more of those things.
If you want a chance to win you need to be a follower and to leave a comment on this post saying how you found me and whether you'd like me to make you something geeky, something stitchy, something upcycled, or any combination of the three. I'll leave this open for a fortnight and choose a winner on Nov 17th. Good Luck!

Wow love the colours and the stitchy bits . The fabric I like the middle one that looks like it has white seed heads on. How I found you Christine well I think we both know it was through NH a few years ago now. I think I would like whatever -you know what that is don't you? If I were lucky enough to win.

I would love to join in please. I found you on one of my blog searching days where I would probably have gone through somebody's sidebar list of blogs they visit and came across you that way.
I would like something stitchy please. Thanks for the opportunity.

A gorgeous giveaway from Nancy and some lovely fabric too.
You were one of the first friends I made on the internet and of course I came along to be nosey and see what you'd been up to when you created the blog too.

Good luck to all your followers who enter, I have a few of your treasures so will give someone else a chance to win one.

It's been so long since I found and started following your blog that I don't even remember how I got here. Congrats on your wins! Thanks for the giveaway! Stitchy sounds good!

Annie said...

I am a newer follower. I found you from one of the blog lists from another blog I read, but don't remember which one.
Please enter me in your contest. I would love something stitchy!

huh, you got really lucky! I LOVE that sewing necessaire, the colours are just perfect!
I have a similar one with cats I use all the time, I’m sure you’ll love having this beside you while you’re stitching.
the fabrics you got from Etsy are lovely too, beautiful motifs and colour choices!

thanks for hosting a giveaway yourself, it’s really nice of you!
I'm a new follower, I've been having your blog in my reader for a while but forgot to follow properly ;)
in case I end up being the lucky one, do whatever you feel like - I trust your taste and geekyness! :D
happy xxx,

Lovely prizes!

How did I find you? Through the TARDIS I believe! But more likely through Needlecraft Haven. According to my spreadsheets of followers it was circa June 2011 and I certainly remember this post as one of the first ones I read - Because of Eloise the Bad Fairy.
Who could not follow someone who uses the word soliloquises in her blog?
I'd love some stitched geekyness please.
