Spring giveaway

Here’s something to brighten your week and mine…GiveawayTo be honest, I’ve been planning a giveaway for a while (like since my birthday in August). However I didn’t get organized and here we are at the end of September already, so lets call this a spring giveaway. If you’ve been reading a while you will know that spring is my favorite season ♥

September 2013 GiveawayThe small bag is made by me, and perfect for your crochet bits and bobs. I’ve included a new crochet hook, a retractable tape measure (I have one the very same and use it all the time), and some new (and very sharp) needles to make sewing in all those pesky ends a little easier. My favorite Whittakers chocolate, some hand made coasters for setting your favorite cup on (also made by yours truly), and a couple of chamomile tea bags (these are my favorite variety for unwinding with at the end of a long day) are included for the next time you need to have a cuppa and something sweet. There’s also a meter or so of these ‘handmade’ labels for stitching to your work – I love the design of these and have some myself too :)

handmade labelsThis giveaway is open to anyone anywhere in the world, just leave a comment below and let me know something that’s your favorite right now! I’ll draw the winner on Sunday October 6, 2013. Have a happy week, love Janette xox

    • My favourite thing right now is knitting newborn baby hats with my left over sock yarn. I also love reading your blogs and keep them all as your ideas are lovely! Do you have any crochet newborn hat patterns.

  4. Such the mostest gorgeous bundle of thoughtfulness to give so generously away! My favourite right now, is Cottage Garden threads, enough oomph in variation to keep it interesting without having to change colours, and vibrant quirky mixes too! I feel privileged to have the chance to receive some of your favourites, thank you so much :)

  5. What a lovely eclectic collection. My favourites right now are my iPad mini (now and forever); watching seedlings shoot up; having posted my Christmas crochet presents home to the UK (phew, one job done); brushing bagfuls of winter hair off our old pony; watching my daughter shriek with joy yesterday at her first game of ten pin bowling.
    P.S. If we win, she has ‘bagsied’ the bag and the chocolate already!!!

  9. what an unusual giveaway :). there is a “because” for every item of yours but my eyes were cached by your lovely labels :) because I tried to make something like this to peronalize my items but it did not worked out :) I also love the color and shape of the coasters and your beautifull geranium flower (even if this is not in the giveaway:)
    hugs from romania :)

  26. Wow! Oh I want to win this amazing collection! My favorite right now must be my family. I had a rough week two weeks ago when I got the diagnosis MS and my family came in and sat by me the entire 3day-treatment. That meant so much to me, knowing that I wasn´t alone in all of this.
    with love, Erika from Sweden

  28. Thank you for such a lovely thought filled giveaway. I always enjoy reading your posts. One of my favourite things at the moment is lavendar tea. Just the flower heads loose but sold for tea. I am using a small spoonful for tea with my breakfast. Sometimes I mix it with chamomile as a super relaxing brew.

  29. Spring is a lovely season…everything coming to life after a winter slumber…but my all time favourite season is Autumn..the light, the colours..so warming and amazing….just coming into Autumn now…love to sit and crochet by the fire..or even the garden, just put on a nice snug jumper, cup of cappucino and off I go….love your work. I love those labels too…Have yourself a great day….. Sallyann x

  30. What a lovely thing to do!! Very selfless. One of my favourite things is finding a new blog post when I visit your page.

    If its crafty things, right now I love my new vintage purls yarn.

  35. It is always so lovely to receive a gift that someone else has made! My favourite thing right now has to be volunteering at the Red Cross Charity Shop in the little town in Germany where I’m at present living with my English husband while he works. The bonus volunteering is all the wonderful fabrics and vintage crocheted tablecloths I recycle to make into the cutest tote bags, that I can give to my family and friends when we return to Australia in December.

  36. Wow my favourite thing right now is the spring weather, it’s been very warm and the kids are already wanting to play in the creek, we have been fossicking for gold (the kids think it’s a hoot) around the farm and generally enjoying the first week of the holdays.

  37. Cool give away! My favourite thing right now is the opposite of yours – its autumn. I’m in Scotland :) I’m a sucker for the autumnal hues and I’m looking forward to the longer nights. It means more cosy time in with with my beau doing more of the things that I love.

    I love taking time in autumn to recuperate after a fun-filled summer!

  39. Here in Holland Fall is starting to kick in, so it is great to read about spring! Normally I would say to give your goodiness to another follower, but now,..

Thanks for being so inspiring!

  43. What a generous selection of giveaways. I love spring too. Everything is fresh and green here at the moment with lots of pretty blossom about. Thanks for all your crafty inspirations.

I also love hot cocoa, family Sunday night dinners and carving pumpkins. Thanks for your kind thoughtfulness. I really enjoy your blog!

  45. I stumbled upon your blog sometime ago and I’ve been following it ever since as I fell in love with it. For some unknown reason I’ve never posted, but with such lovely giveaway how could I help myself ?

    Hmmm favourite thing…..to hard to choose, but if pushed I’d have to say the people I meet doing ordinary everyday things for other people that mean the world to them….from tipping your hat to a passer by to spending 5 mins chatting to an elderly neighbour.

  91. Favourite right now? Toss up between planning for a 1,000km fundraising walk I’ll be doing with some of my kids next year and crocheting together squares of my soon-to-be-13-year-old’s old clothes for his childhood quilt, which we make and give as tradition in our family on this auspicious birthday (four down, four to go!)

  92. I hope you had a lovely birthday! My favourite thing at the moment is that I have found the confidence to crochet without a pattern – I’ve made one jumper and I’m on my second, and to my amazement, they have worked (I’ve even been asked where I got the first one!). Thank you, as in part, I think this confidence has come from using your patters, changing them a little and still having them work! :)

  93. What a lovely things for giveaway. I fall in love with the handmade bird label.

    I follow this blog one week, it is wonderful and send you my warm greetings from Czech Republic.

  95. Thank you for organising this wonderful giveaway – I have to confess that the first thing i noticed was the Whittakers chocolate! Lol
    I really love your craft work, and am impressed with the gifts you’ve chosen :)

    As for my favourite thing, although I’ve been crocheting for 14 months now, I have only recently discovered Granny Squares, which are now a firm favourite with me :)

  96. Thanks for putting together a lovely giveaway! My favorite thing right now is my search for a yarn bowl on Etsy. There are so many lovely ones to choose from, I am savoring looking through each and every one of them.

  97. My favorite right now? Knitting and crocheting baby afghans! I didn’t think I’d finish them because they’re big projects but I recently finished a full sized afghan and a lapghan. BTW, thanks for this giveaway. Can’t wait to see who wins.

  108. Pingback: Gardening | The Green Dragonfly

  109. :) My favorite season? Summer. Iwish we didn’t have 6 months of snow. :( Also, my favorite kitty is Walker. He’s the baby of the family. We found him last halloween while we were out trick or treating. He was probably 8 weeks old and very cold and wanted his very own family. I picked himup and couldn’t put him down. He’s on my lap right now being loving and sweet. Don’t tell the other 5 cats though!!

  110. Nice gifts, you are very generous. I really like your small bag.
    I like crocheting, but I do really little at the moment as I have eczema on my hands.

  111. My favorite thing to do is crochet. I take it with me almost everywhere I go. My son died a year ago and crocheting has kept me from going into a deep depression and has helped me not to isolate myself. When I can’t get out of bed my crochet joins me to keep me busy. I am very thankful for many things. Crochet is one of them.

  112. What a lovely giveaway … I have returned to the Isle of Wight (right at the bottom of England) this evening after travelling 300 miles to Skipton in Yorkshire for the lovely “Yarndale” weekend which was a fantastic woolly weekend run by Lucy from Attic24 and her team of volunteers. You have never seen so much yarny bunting, yarn, flowers, spinning, weaving, crochet, knitting anything and everything. They yarn bombed the Park, the local train station, the Yarndale venue, the bus, the gates, the fences ooooooohhhhhhh everything. Yarndale is certainly my favourite thing at the moment …. what a glorious weekend hundreds and thousands of ladies and men had … oh and ME!! Xx

  113. My favourite thing at the moment is SPRING! I love all the flowers in my garden and the birds and butterflies! Thanks for such a lovely giveaway. :-)

  114. I love the atmosphere of your blog ! Thank you for sharing your tutos and advices… My favourite right now is a big piece of Tiramisu while crocheting a blanket for the coming winter (I’m leaving in the south of France). Would love to win this giveaway, every item is soooo attractive !

  115. Good that I’m not too late for your givaway “contest”! And let me tell you what a great idea you had! This small bag is full of lovely items. I particularly like your coasters. I have to try and make some myself too someday but my crochet skills are still a bit rough … I definitely have to improve here.
    What I really like at the moment is upcycling: to give a new life to old things, changing their shape and using them with different purpose from their original! :-)
    Keep up the good job!

  116. Hi! My favourite thing right now is the absolutely beautiful (actually that’s an understatement) autumn season. I adore walking through my little back woods and admiring the gorgeous golds, reds, and oranges adorning the trees. Seeing the fall breeze blow through the leaves, sometimes making them flutter down to the ground where they eventually dry up and go crunch crunch under your feet as you walk through the remainders of fall, just before it all gets covered up in a blanket of soft white snow. Fall is my all time favourite season, it is like admiring a painting every day, I just love it! Nadia from Canada

  117. My favorite thing right now are the beautiful colors of fall. The sky is a bright blue, the orange pumpkins and the yellow sunflowers to name a few. Here on Long Island NY, we have the benefit of the greatest city, and the beautiful beaches. It is a fantastic place to visit and or live!

  118. Hi! just stumbled upon your lovely blog. I cant really decide what’s my fav right now (maybe Norbert, the handsome chicken I just finished crocheting today! lol) because I just recently learned how to crochet (i love all the firsts!!). Just like you, I like to sew a lot and it would be awesome to receive your gift since my birthday is on the 5th! :) anyhoo, thanks for the all tutorials and sending you kisses all the way from Spain!

  119. Great giveaway! Thanks for being so kind! My favourite thing at the moment, is my 2 1/2 yr old daughter getting excited about picking blackberries and gathering hazelnuts! It’s making me enjoy all the simpler things that I loved doing when I was a child!

  120. My favorite thing is looking on pinterest for neat patterns of things to make for my new grand-niece. Now all I need to do is get busy and do them! She’s already 3 months old now!!! And, of course, as cute as can be. I’ve already been the recipient of one of your handmade beauties, but wouldn’t that be the tops if I won those lovely coasters and the bag! You do very good work. And it’s so special of you to be so generous. It’s like being one of your lovely children, just the thought of being on the receiving end of your craftiness!! Thanks for all you do!!

  121. My favorite thing right now is eating from my garden, especially the tomatoes. Our growing season is almost done though. Fall has just begun. The leaves are turning into beautiful holds and oranges. I live the fresh, cool air!

  122. Thank you Janette, for this lovely giveaway; and most of all for keeping it open around the world. My favourite thing right now is banana smoothies….makes great breakfast, lunch and dinner :)

  123. My favourite thing right now is knitting and crochet with beads! I just love sparkly beads on lace weight yarn. My favourite season is Spring and I’m loving my favourite flowers roses and dahlias right now! :) Fay.

  124. Thanks for a great give away! I always get excited! ;) My favorite thing right now is crocheting some of your stool covers for my kitchen and also collecting vintage glass and making yard art!

  125. Thank you for the opportunity to win these lovely items! I’m a newbie in crochet and ran across your blog searching for crochet ideas and patterns. Love all of the fun, colorful, and inspiring ideas!!

  126. Lovely giveaway. My favorite things are coffee with friends, reading, and crocheting. I also love your top down cardigan–that’s how I found you! I crochet a lot of baby blankets and made some toddler top down sweaters, but a friend loved those and wanted one her size.

  127. Finally – a Give Away with personal touch. Thank you!
    My favourite thing right now is to plan the new colour scheme in our house and imagine what it will look like when it’s done before Christmas and what I can make to create a warm and cozy home for my family. Unfortunately some little pesky thing like ” Work” keeps on getting in the way.

  128. I´d love to be in. Your giveaway is so sweet! And I don’t mean it for the chocolate your posts and works always reflect your feelings and joys, love everything that you do. Thanks Peace love and crochet Grabriela

  129. I think, at the moment, my favourite thing is listening to my littlest get his tongue around the English language. Sometimes it’s pretty tricky to decipher what he’s getting clearer by the day. Got to watch my tongue now though….
