100th Blog Post Giveaway: CLOSED

Today's post is my 100th and I thought that there's no better way to celebrate than to have a giveaway.... more on that later.

Over the last 2 years I have blogged fairly frequently at times and then less so at other times. I don't always feel that I have a lot to say, but when I have the time, I love to keep a journal of what I've been creating and to share it with others

I really appreciate those of you who have stopped by for a peek or left a message at times too. Thank you!

So I thought since Christmas will be here before we know it,  it might be fun to give away a charm pack of Aneela Hoey's newest fabric line Cherry Christmas.



Look at all of the fun Christmasy prints .....


All you have to do to enter is leave me a message telling me what your Christmas crafting aspirations are. That might include Christmas themed sewing/crafting projects or might be gifts that you are planning on creating.

Giveaway closes on Wednesday the 24th of October 2012 at 8pm (Australian Central Daylight Savings Time). The winner will be picked randomly using random.org. The giveaway is open internationally.

I'm looking forward to getting some inspiration from your Christmas crafting ideas!

  4. I'm not a great fan of Christmas themed sewing ( but I love Aneela's Cherry Christmas fabric because it doesn't look too Christmassy).I hope to finally make my (grown up) children some Christmas stockings to hang on the fireplace.Ooh and all those handmade pressies I'm planning, but probably won't execute!

  5. I'm actually using this fabric to make a table runner and tablemats as we are hosting the family Christmas this year. I'm also hoping to make some stockings if I have time.

  26. This looks lovely! Congratulations on reaching 100 posts! :) If I had this packet I might intersperse it with some white and other panels to make a table runner? As for other crafty projects..
