Milestones and a Giveaway

Hello my lovely gorgeous people!

Good morning and hope you are enjoying your winter - the snow, the warm clothes, the cozy snuggles and the lovely food. We have had a not so cold winter here by HK standards.

When i started blogging and had my first few page views and followers, i was soo thrilled. Meeting new friends, seeing their comments on my posts, following other lovely blogs - the entire journey has been amazing! It has been almost a year now since my first one. You can read about it HERE.  And now i am here - with over 100+ followers, my 100th post (this one, YipeEEE!!) and on the threshold of my blog's first birthday :)

What better way to celebrate than to share my happiness with you :) I am hosting my first give away!! Yes i really want to show my appreciation to all you lovely people, who take time out and leave such lovely words of encouragement for me in all my crafty adventures.

This is what is up for grabs



*500 Crochet Blocks by Hannah Elgie and Kath Eastoe - For endless hours of creative exploration. The beautiful presentation and range of patterns make this book a treasured companion. Hannah has been crafting since a child and you can read more about her business Make,Do and Mend HERE. Kath Webber is a journalist and blogger who is addicted to crochet. You can find her blog HERE.


 A sneak peek into some of the lovely pages of this wonderful book....




*Also a collection of lining material for your crochet bag projects. I have used this material many times and its a thumbs up! Its water proof and helps protect all the yarn and threads too.


*Some fancy crafty bits..

 *Lovely wooden buttons for all your needs.


Now, what do you guys need to do so that you win this loot??

Very very simple - Just leave me a comment below! Yes you heard it..a small comment is all it takes for you guys to become the lovely owner of my happiness gift!

  60. Congratulations on your 100+ followers and one year anniversary. What a generous giveaway!

    So glad I found your blog (through cuteasabutton and your coming to my blog).

    I can see you make a lot of lovely things and look very expert.

    I was especially interested in the material you say is good for lining bags as I intend to line the next bag I make. Not sure if it would be on sale in the UK though.

    The book looks very interesting too.
