Giveaway - Angels, Journal Cover, Needle Holder & some more!

This is my 100th post and I am over the moon that I have made this many. I want to thank you all for your comments and following me in my adventures thru the time..over two years now!!

Without your wonderful company I wouldn't be where I am today. That's the truth. You all keep me going.

As I am excited about having 100 posts I want to have a little giveaway to celebrate. I have made these different things and the only thing I haven't made and that's the coffee sachet. If you don't like it you can give it to someone who does. The coasters have Angels on them all with a different word. The journal and the needle cover are in the same fabrics which I love and think they look good put together. I crocheted the little soap holder and the soap is a lovely lavender one. I also have put in a little candlewick hanger. It looks lovely hanging over a door handle.

Soooo if you would like to win this little package of goodies just leave a comment and tell me why you sew or do other crafts. I do it to keep myself sane. heheehe but I also love creating and it’s very relaxing to do sewing. That would be one entry. I like having little competitions too :)

WomanSewingHeartsB1 If you put this little picture on your blog and link it back to mine and tell me you have done that I will put you in for another two entries. I will have a look at your blog…its a good way for me to have a good look around all the blogs.

If you start to follow my blog you will get another entry in and if you follow my blog already you will get two more entries in. So do add up your points and let me know. I will keep a tally and I hope I have to write out lots and lots. I hope you all like the different things I have made and want to win them. If you don't have a blog please leave an email addie so I can contact you if you are the winner.

I will keep the giveaway going for a week…so next Tuesday 21st April 09 at around 5pm I will draw a winner. So tell all and have fun :)

Oh heck…I nearly forgot a photo of what I am going to give one lucky winner.

Yes please , lovely things thankyou Vicki .

Linda said...

Hi Vicki, such a sweet package of goodies. I stitch/quilt because I'm totally addicted, and I'm not looking for any sort of 12 step program, plus like you I have plenty of time to enjoy the creative side of things. I'm not a follower, but I do have you in my google reader, so if that counts then that would be 3 points.

Ruth B said...

Oh I would so love to win this giveaway...beautiful! I love to quilt, applique, do needlework of all kinds because it is relaxing and a way to use my creativity to make beautiful things for my home and loved ones. Fingers crossed!

Jeannette said...

Hi Vicki Congratulations on a milestone. The reason I stitch is for sanity, when i did my degree I missed so much the material and thread maniupaltion, but the design and colour play helped feed that part of my life. So the reasons I stitch are for sanity, the feel of the threads and material in my hands and the design process. I can never follow a pattern with out changing a thread colour or stitch.

Jeannette said...

I forgot to say I have linked the image back to my blog and I are already a follower. Did you want us to tally the points, if so it is 5

Vicki, what a very generous giveaway! I loove the angel coasters ( no surprise huh?) and all the other goodies are just so lovely, but we wouldn't expect anything less from you hehehehe. Why do I stitch and do craft? Well, I also find it incredibly relaxing, it soothes the soul, teaches me patience, keeps me sane too, and it has connected me to some wonderful people via groups and the internet who may not realise that they are adding joy to my life.

Angel hugs.

Sew Useful Designs said...

Hi Vicki! Congrats on your 100th post, I've got a bit of catching up to do!! But I am rather pleased with myself for working out how to put your sewing lady on to my blog's sidebar! :-) Simple things please simple minds... Oops!! Who said that?!!!

I love to craft for many reasons, it is relaxing, I love the tactile nature of sewing, I am addicted to fabric, but also because I love to make personalised and handmade gifts. I feel very blessed to have found a hobby I get so much pleasure from - and to be able to pass on that pleasure to others is just one huge bonus!
Happy blog-aversary!

Purpleflowerpatch said...

Vicki, I only started sewing late in 2005, but as soon as I made my first block I was hooked. I found sewing to be the missing link in my life up to that point, and now over three years later I cannot imagine life without needle and thread in my hand. It allows me to express my love of all things beautiful!
I think that gives me 4 entries...I'd love to win, they are beautiful!

Purpleflowerpatch said...

Ooops, forgot to say I have blogged about your giveaway and am now a follower. :-)

Margarita said...

Love your give away Vicki, and congratulations on your 100th post, that is a lot of work. And yes I would like to be in the give away.
Why do I quilt, I can't not do something thats why, and if I have to do something why not something I love to do.
I will work on your little button, and try very hard to put it up.
Hugs
Marg

Jeanette said...

scarlett said...

What a crafty giveaway! I stitch (quilts) to try and keep up with my little sister (which is impossible because she used to sew professionally)!! But collecting material is fun also!!

Tunamarie said...

Lovely blog! Congratulations on your 100th. I create because it is when I feel centered and connected. I love the entire sensory experience and it gives me a joy that is only matched by my lovely family. I am thrilled to have posted this to my blog and to be a follower of your site.

Shari said...

I would love to be entered in your drawing for the giveaway. Your blog is very nice and the gifties are darling! I stitch, like you, to keep me sane. It relaxes me and keeps me centered/grounded. I am going to try to get that little picture onto my blog but am not a whiz at pc's so give me a couple of days, lol, to figure it out.

Millie said...

Hi Vicky
Congratulations on your 100th posts. I love to make quilts and crafts, because it is relaxing and keep my hands and mind busy. And the best part is I can create a gift to give to my family and friends.

Millie said...

Vicky, I am also a follower of your blog. I enjoy visiting your blog. Have a great day!

soggybottomflats said...

Hi Vicky, I found your blog by way of Jenny from elefantz. I quilt to relax and to make something awesome to leave to my family when I am gone. I love your blog and am going to become a follower. Thanks for the fun giveaway, Elaine

Siggi said...

Hallo Vicky,
Heute schreibe ich einfach mal in Deutsch, da ich weiß das Deine Mutti Deutsche ist, kann sie es Dir vielleicht übersetzen, aber vielleicht reichen ja auch Deine Deutschkenntnisse.
Ich freue mich sehr über Dein Giveaway.
Warum ich handarbeite? Weil das meine Entspannung ist, ich dabei meine Gedanken in Ordnung bringe. Wenn die Handarbeiten reden könnten würde Freude oder auch Kummer zu Tage treten.
Außerdem macht es mir Freude für liebe Menschen Geschenke zu erarbeiten und Freude zu geben.
Viele Grüße aus Berlin, auch an Deine Mutti von Siggi!

Dawn said...

Thanks for the great giveaway!! I am a follower, I posted on my blog (right hand side) and I sew because it's cheaper than therapy!!

Terry said...

What a lovely giveaway! I sew and stitch to be creative. I also have found that stitching is very relaxing for me. Thank you! :0)

susanm said...

Rochelle said...

I sew to keep myself sanity. Too much drama from two teenagers. I recently tried making my own journal cover and less than fabulous results. I would love to win one to see how they are really made.

Siggi said...

Hello Vicki,
I have put the little Pikture to my blog and link it back to you. It's ok?
Greetings from Berlin

Angela said...

I have 11-year-old triplets (1 boy, 2 girls) and a two-year-old little boy... Plus a dear hubby... So I am sure you can see why I say that sewing/quilting helps keep me sane! :o)
Congrats on 100 posts!

Lucky-1 said...

I sew for sanity's sake - not only does it help me relax, it gives me something to accomplish that is permanent.

Why do I sew?? Because it helps me stay calm in this crazy world ! LOL There is a peace that I only get in my sewing room and a special pleasure that only comes from finishing a project. I could not imagine my life without sewing /crafting...what would I do with all the fabric I have horded ?? LOL

Home of Creative Treasures said...

Congratulations on your 100th post Vicki; a wonderful achievement.

I have made a post about your giveaway on my blog along with the little image. I have been a follower of your blog for sometime now, well since I started up my crafts after some years of my sewing collecting dust.

Why do I sew and craft, well the short of it is, relaxation. It also gives me the opportunity to get to know many other crafty ladies that I would otherwise not know. Lets face it, these ladies are very nice people!

From one crafter to another, thanks for this opportunity to enter into your competition.

Joy said...

Woohoo, congratulations Vicki!!!! I'd love to be in the draw to win your fabulous gifties!!! I love to stitch because it's a way I can 'escape' and be in a world of my own :o). I also love the idea of leaving lots of handmade treasures for my children, grandchildren and maybe even some great grandchildren :o).
Hugs
Joy :o)

Lisa said...

I love quilts and handmade items.. My mom was a crochet and macrame person and used many of her items that she made. I like to make cards and stationery but I do sew on occassion, for the boys. I've made some great costumes (like a lobster) for them for Halloween. I like to craft because I like to see how my design turns out! Going from my thoughts to my finished product, it makes me smile!

bubbachenille said...

Love 2 Quilt said...

hi, grandmaught me to sew years ago and then I sewed clothes for my children. From there I made a baby quilt (over 20 years ago) and haven't stopped. I love to quilt and sew, create beautiful things and actually have a projec I can show off.

I've been following your blog too.

Jane's crafty creations! said...

Hey Tozz!

I stitch and craft as therapy and something that I can do that is just for me, but at the same time it can put a smile on other's faces.
I love making things for other people, you would hardly believe it but there is not much in my house that I have made, I love seeing other people's faces when they receive something from me.

Teresa.Golden said...

As a retiree I needed a way to use whatever talent I might have to serve the Lord. I asked HIM about it and I was soon introduced to quilting. We made small quilts for the troops. Then lap quilts for veterans. Next I joined a knitting group who makes hats and blankets for babies in NICU. The hospital we work with delivers about 6 babies a day and the majority go home with nothing but a disposable diaper unless we gift them. Sewing for church bazaar so the little church can increase funds and not have to close its doors. I sew because it serves the Lord.
