100 Followers Giveaway

Today I woke up to find that 100 of you lovely people out there publicly follow my blog. The fact that you like what I do enough to even bother to click that little button so you can keep track of me, means the world to me.

A blog is a funny thing. I like to look back at my own blog and see what we've been up to. I like to see how my creative journey has been changing and developing.

And I love reading all your blogs. They are an inspiration. They are interesting and funny. They allow me to 'meet' like-minded lovely people all over the world.

So to celebrate receiving my 100th follower and to thank you for being such loyal readers, I am having a giveaway. The winner will receive a Pincushion and Needlecase Set, along with a matching keyring (just let me know the initial you want). All you need to do is leave a comment as to why you follow my blog. If you don't yet follow, please feel free to now do so and then you can enter!


I'll announce the winner on Sunday 18 October, which gives you 5 days to think of something lovely to say! Good luck!

The reason I follow your blog? I love the fabrics you use and finding new websites through you. I'm collating quite a wish list of fabrics I want, combined with a list of things I now want to make.

Congratulations indeed :D I have actually been "following " your blog for quite some time but hadn't clicked the follower thingy! I love your blog for many reasons. You have such lovely things on here and the fabrics you have are pure eye candy! I always finish reading your posts with an urge to make, sew and do. And that's got to be good, right?

I'm new to being a blogger and came across your work one night. I like seeing your updates as it inspires me in the textile industries. I love the materials you use, and literally get excited everytime I log onto this and see something new being posted by you. Thank you for giving me my inspiration to research into textiles more, and keep up the hard work :)

Pomona said...

Yours was one of the first blogs I discovered, even before I was a blogger myself, when I was just a lurker who didn't even know how to comment! I really enjoy seeing what you create - it is all really different, and I love your distinctive style.

I just adore your beautiful creations, they are always 'sew inspiring'! My b/f is a Leeds man so its also nice to follow such a lovely blog from his neck of the woods. Congrats! A x

izzy inspired said...

I just found your blog through a link on "one flew over" what creative things you have going on!! I have to say though, that as I was looking through your posts one of my favorites things was your cards. I LOVE them, such a creative idea, and beautifully done. I also adore your embroidery skills, very inspiring.

silverpebble said...

Oh what a gorgeous little giveaway. Please could you pop me in the hat? I think your designs are just lovely and would love to own something that you have made. I have been such a rubbish blogger recently but my resolution, especially since revisiting your lovely blog is to visit and comment more.

Lyn said...

As you can see by my list of 'blogs I love' I already follow you but I like yours because you sew the most beautiful things and sewing is not something I do well!
Love

I follow your blog because it inspires me. Congrats on all the followers!

esther (it means star) said...

Wow 100 followers thats awesome! I follow your blog for a couple of reasons: I like the fabrics you showcase, the things that you make, and your true down-to-earth nature. So here's to 100 more followers to come (I've put your link on my blog). Not to sound too presumptious but I would love an "E" should the winner be me.

Purple Greetings Cards said...

... your blog is enjoyable and a pleasure to read.

Rae said...

Hi Karen,

What a lovely giveaway! I've recently started following because a) I found you through twitter so came to have a nose and b) I've just started taking my fear by the hand and am having a go at crafting myself. I'm a total novice and I love looking at blogs like yours for inspiration :)
