Not One, but Two Giveaways....

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS GIVEAWAY HAS NOW ENDED
THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO ENTERED

I have decided to have a Giveaway - the first I have done since blogging began for me this year. No reason - just because. The first challenge for this giveaway was what to actually giveaway, I really couldn't decide - so i have decided to giveaway two options.


Please copy and paste my button to your sidebar;


The rules are fairly simple, please let me know if you find them a struggle to understand. I will select one winner for each option and the winner will be randomly selected - I haven't quite figured out how to use this facility so I will be doing the old-fashioned way of selecting names at random from a hat!

The rules;

1. Leave me a comment with the option you would like to win and your contact details. That will earn you one entry. (You can't win both options unfortunately).

2. Paste my blog button to your side-bar - this will earn you an extra entry.

3. Post about my giveaways on you blog - this will earn you 3 entries.

4. Anyone who enters and leaves a comment of the blog who linked them to me gets themselves and the other blog member 5 entries each.

I will be drawing the winners on 30 September 2009. Don't forget to come back and tell me if you blog about the giveaway or use my button otherwise you will only be entered once.
Good luck.

pajtr said...

What a generous giveaway!
(Thank you for the opportunity!... )
I would love to receive option 1 !

Caroline, I am SO delighted by your *beautiful* work!!
Such a lovely, natural charm to all of your quilts!!
(Great photography, too! Great pictures of the Starburst candy quilt!)
Also, I really love how you made the water waves so gently swirling in the little boats quilt!... You were right to made the seas more calm, rather than the way they were in the quilting sample. A question, though, Caroline??... Did you use couched threads in those gentle waves, when you quilted that?? It looks like it... *Love it!*
By the way, **Congratulations to the Newlyweds!!**
*Beautiful wedding!!*
Blessings!!!
Patricia
