giveaway: pin cushion

pin cushion candidates

Im having another giveaway!

Okay. The secret idea that I told myself was that every time I reached another ten followers id have a giveaway.
Well, it has taken alot quicker than I thought to reach another ten. I hesitated telling you guys about my secret plan and I didnt want to invite people to follow me unless it was their idea, that you had seen something here you were drawn to and wanted to follow along without being prompted by my words or enticed by a giveaway. Well, I suppose ive given the game away now, havent I? Im not promising every time, now, just to keep you in expectation. It took me so long to reach fifty from forty that I thought my next giveaway would be in a few months down the track. But having made up my mind, I am going to do one!

I havent even sent off the cushion covers from the last giveaway as you ladies who won pretty much told me to take my time with all of my visitors arriving and so on. Theyll be on their way soon. I find it so difficult to get my act together to get to the post office on time. Im always getting there at 4:55pm. Always. Then theres been my first market to arrange as well. Im on it though.

This time it will be another pin cushion from my stash of embroideries. For those of you who dont know the drill I prefer the large type of pin cushions. They have been claimed to command a place on shelves. They dont fade into the background or get lost under piles of fabric. No. They are pin cushions of the upscaled kind. If you dont have the room and suffer from storage issues then these pin cushions are not for you.
If, however, you are sick of searching needlessly while sewing up a frenzy,  for your teeny weeny little, too small to hold all the pins your heart desires pin cushion, then youve come to the right giveaway.

Leave me a comment and ill put you in the draw. I would love you to spread the word too.
That would be perfectly fine.

Hi there! Glad I found your blog today and thank you for commenting on mine! The name of your blog acually drew me in....I have a tree tattoo on my back so am a bit of a nature fanatic myself!
I don't embroider so would LOVE to win one of your beautiful pin cushions! Pick me, pick me, pick me! (please)

I've got plenty of room in my house to swing a cat, or a gigantic pin cushion...so count me in. Like the lovely Kate, I've been a follower for a while but I'm sure age doesn't proclude us from your gorgeous giveaway! Have a great week.

lovely, lovely, one can never have too many beautiful handmade things! Love your work, Wendy!

MonetPaisley said...

Well, I still have no pincushion, hopefully a pin cushion would prevent pins from ending up on the floor all the time, not good with 3 kids running around..... you wouldnt even have to go to the post office.... we could exchange your jacket and scarf for my new pincushion :-) I really should pull my finger out and make one, hey!
