Giveaway for my Blogiversary and a free pattern

Yes, it's my Blogiversary.

It's 10 years tomorrow since I started Blogging and took my tentative steps on a journey that has taken me far, far beyond what I could ever have dreamed.

I have 'met' so many lovely people, been encouraged by complete strangers, been supported through times of trouble, have been blown away that people have liked my designs, and have been grateful for those who bought my patterns. This blog journey has truly been a great blessing. Thank you to you who have read my posts and left such beautiful comments. You have made me smile!

I couldn't let a Blogiversary go by without a Giveaway ... and we are going to have three winners! Yes, three of my readers will have the opportunity to receive one of my patterns - your choice. All you need to do is to leave a comment on this post telling me which pattern you would like to win. 

My shop has lots of different sections so it is easy for you to find the pattern you would like to win - a bag, or a quilt, a pincushion, a pillow ...

The competition will be open for two weeks, finishing at midnight on
Saturday 23rd March (Australian time!)
 and I plan to announce the winners the next day. Please make sure you leave your email address if you are a 'No Reply blogger'. If I cannot easily find your address, I am afraid I will need to hold a redraw.

So, go have a look at my shop, choose a pattern, and leave me a comment.

And seeing it's an Anniversary, I have added to my shop something new and something old.

"Beyond the Garden Gate" was published last year and the pattern is now available in my shop.

It's a gorgeous row quilt, with pieced blocks and lovely garden appliques. It is made using the easy Quilt-as-you-go method, but of course could be made by the traditional method if you wished.

Now for something old. I discovered quite a while ago that it was a good idea to keep my needles in their packets, or at least together, so I would know exactly which needle was what. "Lovely in Lilac" is a sweet needle case with six pockets to keep your different kinds of needles. It has some pretty lavender embroidery and makes up very quickly. It would make a great gift for a sewing friend too!

The Pattern can be found in my shop here.

AND ...

so that you are ALL winners, I am making available for the next two weeks a free stitchery pattern called 'Wishes'. 
The pattern will be available from here until Saturday 23rd March, so hurry and download it now. Don't forget to let me see your finished stitchery!

Thanks for celebrating with me!
