500 follower giveaway!

Here it is, the 500 follower giveaway! I can't believe that I've even reached that number (and passed it now!), thank you to every one of you who visits and comments here, I enjoy reading every comment you leave.

But, on to the real reason you came here today, the goodies! Here's what I'm giving away to one lucky follower:

aqua flea market bag

I made a flea market bag using this pattern, I used some pretty aqua yarn to make it, the pictures are showing it as more of a blue but it is so much prettier in person. In the bag, I've added a couple of pretty African Flower dishcloths and 3 skeins of some of my favorite cotton yarns; tangerine, mod green and off white (which I swear used to be called cream, I think they changed that with the label change). There might end up being a couple extra goodies not shown here, I've had a rough time finding certain things I wanted to add. But, for now this is what is up for grabs!

500 follower giveaway!

To win these goodies, you need to be a follower of my blog, leave me a comment letting me know that you are one. If you'd like an extra entry, leave me another comment letting me know how long you've been following my blog and how you found me.

The giveaway is open everywhere! I'll announce the winner on October 15th. Good luck everyone and thank you for visiting!!

  2. I just followed via GFC. I'm guessing that you have well over 500 followers because I was already following but through Google Reader so it didn't count in the 500. :)

  3. Oh yes, and I'm a follower. I have been for quite a while! I don't remember exactly how long, but several months, at least. I found you through the network of other crochet blogs. =)

  4. I can't remember how long I've been following or where I found you. I'm guessing, though, that it's been awhile because you're high up in my reader categories. And I'm thinking I must have seen a link to you either on another crochet blog or on Twitter. Love your stuff!

    I really enjoy the beautiful colors and pretty things you make, so your blog is in my sidebar for others to be inspirered!
