Sew Peaceful blogoversary giveaway NOW CLOSED

December 31 is my 2nd blogoversary! So what has happened in the last year? I have had 6,000 profile views with 66,475 visitors to date; I have read 62 books; had 2 surgeries; my first ever Round Robin returned home; a new Round Robin has been started; there have been giveaways both given and won; a few exchanges made; I re-discovered my love for miniature stitching; I've struggled to stitch on Beatrix Potter; I became an official member of the Sisterhood; there was a wedding in June and a July birthday made me realise I am now married to an OAP!! I have met new friends, one of whom I visited in Paris and she made a return visit to me. I started to design again - a few years back I dabbled in designing and even taught these designs but, as my hands got worse, I had to stop. Since my surgeries I am now relatively pain free and, on discovering the Macstitch program, I got the itch to design again. This brings me neatly to my blogoversary giveaway - did you think I had forgotten?

This year my giveaway is an exclusive, limited edition iStitch chart called 'Sew Peaceful'. I designed this chart as a Christmas gift for friends and others who have inspired me with their stitching, their blogs and their generosity. There will be three winners and all you have to do is leave a comment ON THIS POST ONLY saying why you would like to win. The draw is open to everyone but I do ask that if you have no blog, or if your blog is private/locked, please please leave me an email address with your comment. Feel free to advertise this giveaway on your blog but it's not compulsory - if you leave a comment, you have a chance to win. The draw will be held on my blogoversary date - December 31.

To everyone who has visited my blog this year and to all who have left such lovely comments - thank you and please come again.

I will, of course, be posting again before the end of the year. I have birthdays gifts yet to be opened (such restraint); two birthday dinners to attend - a family one and a Stitch-n-Bitch one; my Christmas ornaments are almost finished. Sew Pink and Sew in Love are both close to release. So there will be photos to be shared.

Thanks for visiting
Take care

    Happy Blogaversary!!!
    I'm nearing my first too - I might just do as you've done and sit back and count my blessings for new friends discovered.
    Thank you for this chance to break down international barriers!!

    Carol, you know I love your designs! Please enter me the drawing. I think Peace is my favorite word of the English language. It's so calming. I am forever searching for it.

     
  • On 9 December 2009 at 11:16, Blogger Delfi

    I would love to win this chart from you, Carol. I love your designs, they are simple and yet not simplistic. I promise to stitch the design in January of 2010 if I should win it.

    So why would I like to win this particular chart? Simple. Peace is something I'm working hard toward achieving in my own personal life right now--a life which is currently filled with stress and strife. I pray daily to be able to find peace.

    Congratulations on your blogoversary, by the way.

    Carol--I absolutely adore your designs! This pattern is wonderful, with the word Peace down the side! Love it! I crave a bit of peace in my life right now. So much going on that I cannot control, thus I feel like I am in a free fall! Maybe 2010 will be a 'peace-ful' year for us all!

    Hugs!

    Hello Carol,

    Please enter me in your giveaway drawing. My husband has been out of work for a year. We have faith that everything will be O.K., but it is a little stressful with the holidays. I could use a bit of peace -- at least in my stitching. :o)

    Love & Peace,
    Holly

    Hi Carol, Please can you enter me into your blogaversary draw. Apart from being overjoyed at discovering your designs & loving them lots, I would like to win because I've recently returned to stitching after a 18 month break having had twins & the idea of "peace" is music to my ears... I guess when the twins are both grown up & moved out I'll have all the peace I need & will probably wish them back!!

    Finding your BLOG was like leaving a busy highway on an unknown exit ramp... you never know what you will find as you turn the corner at the end of the exit - but there it was - a wonderful accepting cross-stitching community - with plain and simple designs, free patterns, a contest and lovely writings! I can't wait to come back, to listen and join conversations, to download free patterns, to buy those that touch my heart and collect ideas from everyone... thank you so much for being there, or here, and for making me feel "at home"!

    Happy blogaversary!
    I have this thing for robins, ever since my sister got me a bookmark with a robin on it when she was living in Scotland. No idea why that stuck, but I'd love to get the chance to stitch two and keep on my soon-to-be home office wall!

    I've reread your post and realized that you asked "Why you would like to win" - well in my first post I explained how wonderful it was to find your blog but not WHY I wanted to win the design - so I'm back...

    I have a new granddaughter, the only one I will ever have as I have only one child and she had her baby at age 38 but told me that they are happy with one... so Ellie will be my "Only" - and as such she will get all I can give, in love, acceptance, patience, learning and history of family and place... I also want to pass on to her my love for stitching and knitting and baking and cooking and reading and - well you get the idea... this would be my first stitching since she was born at the end of June - it will begin a tradition of making FOR Ellie and then, when she is older, making WITH Ellie and then, hopefully, Ellie making for herself and others... THAT is why I want to win, what a perfect first project for me to make for Ellie - PEACE for her life.

    Well this is my 3rd message: (1) I told you how much I loved finding your blog and (2) I told you how much I wanted to win the stitching - and now (3) I will actually give you my email address. You see I NEVER win contests and so I rarely read all the directions for the entries - you could say I am at the bottom of the barrel for winning contests, no you should say I am under that possible winners barrel LOL...
    Please read both my earlier posts and then add this one to them...
    LOL - after all - I "could" win huh? And I heard that the moon is made of blue cheese (if it was herbed goat cheese I might apply to NASA) and that green eggs and ham is a wonderous meal!

    This is just lovely! I'd love to have this one as part of my small holiday collection. I never celebrated Christmas growing up, or for many years as an adult. (Long story.) Now that I am free to do so, I find it difficult to find meaning in something I was always taught was harmful. One of the things that is helping me is to focus on family traditions and the ideas of peace, love and joy as things we can all bring into each others' lives. This pattern is a beautiful illustration of that.

    Thanks for entering me. Happy New Year, Carol - may you be blessed in 2010.

    Please, please post who won the three blogoversary designs...
    I sat at home on the last day of 2009 with fingers crossed, rabbits feet surrounding me and tossing salt over my left shoulder - then on January 1st I was vacuuming up the salt with sore fingers and putting the rabbits (with their feet) outside to enjoy the crisp cold air... alas, I'm sure I didn't win but would like to know who did...
    hugs and love in this beautiful but cold new year!
