Giveaway Winners

Today I am announcing the winners of the Geraldine Brooch kits.

Giveaway Winners

I have five lucky winners and they are:



Dee Shaw

Linda Kendall


I will be contacting you all by email for your addresses and your ‘Geraldine’ will be on her way to you very soon.

Thank you to all of the Giveaway entrants and for your comments. It was interesting reading through all the reasons that tempt you to follow a blog. It seems that generally you look for ideas, tutorials, free patterns, lovely pictures and blogger’s interests & life.

When I have some free time (which isn’t very often) I do trawl around various quilting blogs and yes, I also sometimes take a quick peek at some of my followers blogs when I see your blog addresses. For those of you that haven’t realised it, when someone leaves a comment if you click on their name and they have a blog it will link you over to their blog. So, take a look. You may find some more interesting blogs to follow.

I told you I would let you know what attracts me to other people’s blogs. Well, for me the first thing that attracts me to take a further look is if it is visually pleasing. I guess it is like a first impression when you meet someone for the first time. If it looks fresh and inviting with great photos then I am usually tempted to delve further. Then I tend to skim through the photos quickly and see if they look exciting, innovative, colourful. Once I see a photograph that attracts me in I am tempted to start reading. So, I guess this shows how important the presentation of a blog is. Also, it is important for me that a blog is easy to navigate, so that I can find the things I am looking for.

I hope those of you that have blogs of your own  have found both my thoughts and the comments of my followers useful in helping you to make your blogs more inviting. I found it very interesting myself.

OK back to the sewing now. That’s enough blog surfing for today.


Cute Little Giveaway

I recently sorted through the last few boxes of remaining stock from my closed down quilting shop House of Patchwork. Ahhhhh fond memories! There really isn’t very much exciting left now but I did come across these Brooch Kits by Whiskers & Wings.

Geraldine Brooch Kit

They are little kits that contain everything to make Geraldine.

Geraldine Brooch

Geraldine is a cute little cow brooch measuring 3½″ (9cms). The kits contain all the fabrics, wooden legs, buttons, bell etc. Geraldine is very easy to sew and would make a great gift for a friend either sewn ready or maybe just the kit.

And the good news is I have five of them to Giveaway.


If you would like to be in for a chance to win one of these kits then please leave a comment. Now what could you tell me in your comment? I know, how about telling me what generally tempts you to follow a quilting blog when you surf around the quilting sites. I think that would be interesting to know.

You have until Tuesday 25th February to leave your comment and I will draw the winners on Wednesday. And then I will tell you what draws me to follow a quilting blog. I wonder if we are tempted by the same things??? Interesting eh! (Giveaway now closed)

Good luck.
