Giving Thanks Blog Hoppers Party Giveaway

Woohoo….the party has begun!!!!

Blog Hop Party with Give-Aways

Thanks to Michele for hosting the fun…..and isn’t it going to be wonderful????….a week long party running from now until November 26th where you can visit the 160+ Blog Hop Party participants, some you may not know (which is always fun….and where you might find a new fave!!) AND get to enter their giveaways!!!!

If you’re new to my blog…A HUGE WELCOME!!!

My name’s Wendy and I’ve been crafting, particularly stitching and quilting for as long as I can remember.  I’m a newly retired teacher, now pattern designer and stitcher living in the tropical north of Australia.

You can see, and even purchase, some of my designs in my Craftsy store, but check back often as there will be new ones going in there all the time!  There’s also some freebies if you click on the tabs at the top of my blog.  If you’re able to get your hands on some Aussie Craft Magazines, you’ll find some of my projects in some recent  Australian Patchwork and Stitching and also coming soon in Creating Country Threads.

I run the Birthday-Love Stash every month for those of you who are like me and need some help to be a bit more organised for birthdays throughout the year. (come on, admit it, there must be more like me!!!!)  You can find more about that on the Birthday-Love Stash tab and link up each month by clicking on the Birthday-Love Stash button on my sidebar.

I also host the Friday Night Sew In (FNSI) (on behalf of Heidi and Bobbi) on the third Friday night of each month.  It’s always such fun to link up with other crafty minds on a Friday night, enjoy some crafty business with some yummy sustenance and perhaps a bubble or two, if even only virtually!!!!  (and maybe win a prize!!!!!)

As well as that, I co-host the Sew It’s Finished blog with my gorgeous friend and fellow designer and blogger Dawn.  Make sure you pop on over and have a look and if you want to join, just drop either one of us an email!

So take some time to explore my blog and tell me what you think! (keep it nice please???!!!  LOL)  Just for commenting you will be in with a chance to win one of 4 giveaways……

First prize…..

003 (Medium)

a stash of babushka inspired goodies (some of my faves)…….two half yards of fabric, ribbon and buttons

Second to Fourth prizes…..

I'm a Craftsy Designer

your choice of patterns from my Craftsy store.

The draw will be on November 26, which is next Tuesday, so just remember to be in it, you just need to leave me a comment telling me what you think (nicely) of my blog.  You can get a second chance if you are or become a new follower…..just leave another comment telling me so, and another if you follow by email, and another if you follow by Bloglovin or Feedly. So that’s 5 chances you could have in the draw!!!

  AND……..you’ve got until November 26th to visit all the other participating bloggers and have a chance at winning  over 160 prizes!!!  Now how much fun is that??

So let’s go party!!!!

Sugary hugs xox :o)

What a cute blog you have! You Australian designers just blow me away...so much talent.

Jennifer Ofenstein said...

You've got a lovely blog and it's always fun to see someone else that is as busy as I am. What would life be if it wasn't filled with so much crafty goodness! Followed you on Craftsy, too. :D

Edi said...

Hi Wendy,
I'm not entering the drawing - I'm just taking the opportunity to tell I think you have a fabulous blog and you are a phenominal person. Love and hugs.

Pat V. said...

OK, I can't imagine why anyone hoping to win a prize would leave a comment that wasn't nice! But I really love the tabs, they make it super easy to find everything.
