....................................

 
It must be time for a Giveaway! 
Just because ....

If there needs to be a reason, let's say it's because I'm celebrating having two of my designs on the front covers of magazines this week!

Here's one of the covers - Lily's wardrobe:


It reminds me of the days when we used to dress paper dolls - and the frustration of the clothes never staying on properly!

Lily's clothes are guaranteed to stay on with the ever-trusty Velcro! The six outfits on the hangers are all removable to fit on Lily.  Can you imagine how much fun I had designing this project!

Here's Lily in one of her cute outfits:


For my lovely friends who don't have access to our wonderful Australian craft magazines, I have put the pattern on my website here if you would like to purchase it.

-------------------

Now I've digressed totally!  The Pattern Giveaway ....

I have now designed eight wall-hangings in my interactive cupboard series.  (You can see them here)

I am giving away two e-patterns from the series.  
The first is My Kitchen Dresser, the very first cupboard I designed and definitely my favourite.


The other giveaway will be an e-pattern of My Laundry Cupboard, probably my cutest cupboard.  I always smile whenever I look at it!


To enter the contest, just leave a comment on this blog post, telling me which pattern you'd like to win and why.

There'll be a second entry for anyone who is a follower of my blog - please make another comment to tell me you are a follower. 
(If you wish to become a follower, click on the Follow button on the sidebar.)


Entries close at midday (Oz time) on Sunday 7 August.

Feel free to tell your friends.

Happy stitching!
Val

Hi Mum
Well done on getting on the front covers! I can certainly vouch for your absolutely, adorable cupboard series that I think are so fabulous as they adorn one of my walls! I see them every day and certainly love them all, as much as the children do, I think! I don't need to win either of your patterns seeing you have so kindly already made them both for me (well the children, actually!), but I do have two more spaces on that wall... hint, hint!!

Bietje said...

Difficult, difficult, which one to choose. I go for the kitchen one. I already picture it in my own kitchen.

Bietje said...

And the second entry for becoming a poster. I read your blog for a long long time, but as a secret follower in Google Reader. But for a chance to win this give-away, everybody may know that I do follow you.

Penny said...

Oooo..Val, that's totally so pretty.I remember making paper dolls and paper dresses for my daughter.'Lily's Wardrobe will be the first thing I make for my 'future' grand daughter..(if I'm blessed with one !) And if I win this giveaway, I would choose 'My Laundry Cupboard' because I see there are more stitchery to do ! Thanks :)

I'd love to get the Kitchen Dresser. It reminds me of getting ready for a Tea Party with all the pretty dishes, cups, saucers, teapot, etc.
Love the doll pattern too, will need to check that out now that I have a granddaughter to spoil.

BJ said...

I follow your blog all the time. It's one of my favorites!

Two front covers - whoopee!!!! Congrats, Val! Your cupboards are SO DARLING!!! I love the laundry one best - I love doing laundry, is that odd? LOL!

Allie said...

Almost forgot - I'm a follower!

mandapanda said...

Ooh noice! I love the laundry cupboard! I'm not exactly sure why...probably that cute little iron! Anything that makes ironing look cute would have to be fantastic!! lol

mandapanda said...

Val - what's the other pattern on the front cover? You didn't say! I can't wait to be able to go into the newsagents and be all like - See this? I know the person who made this! lol
I'm a follower, btw!

middleimage said...

How to choose? Both are so lovely, but I really love the Kitchen Dresser. Used to live in a 16th century farmhouse in Devon UK and had a dresser just like it. Also had a 1/12th scale miniature dresser too. Chrissie

middleimage said...

I have been visiting your blog for sometime but have now become a follower.. Chrissie

Susan said...

Val, I think I would have to pick the laundry one - anything in purle is a goer for me - and besides - it has less calories!
What a great idea for Lily's wardrobe - no grand children yet - and I hope its a while off - but no harm to start planning!!

And I have you Gifts of Grace on my blog so will have to see if that makes me a follower - I can always join again!
Susan

Rian said...

Wow, what a great give-away, like them both, but I prefer the kitchen one. It make me think of a big cup of tea with my best friend Janneke. I think she will like it too. She doesn't quilt herselves, but she likes the things I made. If I win, I think I make this one for her!
And to become a follower, do I have to have a weblog on my own????
Greetings from Holland

Gladys said...

Hola, Val! Su patrón es hermoso y más de una niña estará feliz jugando con él. Gracias por el sorteo, adoraría el patrón de la Lavandería! Me enamoré de esa plancha y del frasco a gatillo!! Ud. tiene una forma genial de reproducir las cosas! Un abrazo!

Gladys said...

Hola, Val! Sólo para decirle que antes seguía sus trabajos por el Google Reader, pero me hice seguidora definitiva de su blog, para obtener una segunda chance para el patrón de Lavandería! Me gustó muchísimo! Jajaja! Un abrazo!

Marsha said...

Val,

I am a follower and I would love to win a pattern. Both are adorable but I could make the laundry room one and brighten up my dreary laundry room. That would be so fun! ! ! Thanks for the chance in the giveaway.

I like all of your patterns but I would love to win My Laundry Cupboard.

requilt said...

I just became a follower - in the past I have left your website open and when I exit Firefox I have it save my windows and tabs so your site is opened whenever I go into Firefox. I am thinking being a follower will work as well if not better

Anonymous said...

Val, I read your blog quite regularly, come here every week at the least, and would love to win either one of these lovely little quilts. I think the kitchen/dresser one would suit my home nicely!

I will have to look into this Follower thing LOL new things scare me just a wee bit.

Congratulations Val...two covers...woo hoo. I think if I really really have to choose one, then I choose the laundry cupboard because in the pic, it's done in my favourite colour scheme...purple and green! I guess if I win, I'll have to make it in the same colours now hey? lol Thanks for the chance to win another pattern to add to my growing collection. Hugs Naomi

Hi Val
I am now a follower and still love your little cupboards - still going for laundry - but I bought the mag so I could have the Lily's wardrobe!
Thansk heaps

Linda said...

They are both cute...think I prefer the laundry one. Something different and gorgeous colours

Linda said...

Cindy in Texas said...

Actually, I'd love to win the Lily's wardrobe pattern. The pattern is so cute and functional too. But, since it isn't an option, I'd love to win the laundry quilt. This month on Flylady.net is laundry month. This pattern seems so appropriate for starting a new loving-myself habit. BTW, congrats on the magazine covers. You must be soooo thrilled.

Catherine Colquhoun said...

O'h Val, I absolutely love your Lilys Wardrobe! It brings back so many happy memories. Thanks for helping us recall those wonderful times of playing with our paper doll! Blessings, Catherine Colquhoun.
