2nd Blogoversary Giveaway

Hello all!

I'm 2 years old today at the exact time this posting went live!

Happy blogoversary to me, Happy blogoversary to me,
Happy blogoversary Ten Hour Stitcher, Happy blogoversary to me!

Is it really two years since I first published my blog? It seems like only yesterday to me, although probably m-u-c-h longer to you due to my sometimes excessive ramblings!

I have had immense fun over the last couple of years as I've got to know you, even met some of you, and felt friendship across the miles with each and every comment. I've stitched much more than I would have ever thought possible, joined in with sensible and not-so-sensible challenges and been introduced to charts I would never have considered before blogging. Stitchy blogland really is a lovely place to be!

So what better way to celebrate my blogoversary than by having a giveaway?

Up for grabs is a gift voucher for £10 or US$15 (or local currency equivalent) for the shop of your choice (providing they do e-vouchers of course!)

All you have to do is:
1) be a follower of this blog via the members tag on the left,
2) leave a comment on this post saying that you would like to be entered,
3) give an indication of what you would purchase with the voucher (this will not influence the result; I just want to be nosey!)
4) out of courtesy confirm that you would actually use the purchase, not just buy something to simply enhance your stash.

The closing deadline is 9am (UK time) 10th March 2016, giving you one week to enter.

The winner will be chosen by Random Number Generator sometime during the morning of 10th March 2016. I will then publish the name and ask you to contact me with your chosen store so that I can sort out the voucher ASAP. Good luck everyone!

Love and hugs,
Rachel x

Happy Blogoversary Rachel, very generous of you to do a giveaway thank you! I would love to be entered please and if I were lucky enough to win, I would use the voucher to purchase one of the new Nashville Market releases that has caught my eye - French Woolens by Plum Street Samplers 💜!

Wow! Happy happy blogoversary!! Time flies so quickly when you have fun! Thank you for having a giveaway and celebrating with us :)
If I was chosen I would love to buy some speciality threads, weeks dye, gentle art and classic colour works threads for a project I would like to do. I have not had the pleasure of using them (too expensive in England) so would be really excited to win!
Happy smiles :)

Justine said...

Happy Blogoversary! The last two years has flown by. I'm so glad you started blogging and am proud to call you a friend.
Stitchy blogland definitely is where it's all happening!
What a lovely way to celebrate with your followers! Please don't include me in your draw, as you know I am trying to reduce my WIP list and my stash, and I really don't have my eye on anything else at the moment.
Hope you are stitching something lovely today to celebrate!

Happy blogoversary!!
I'd love to be entered, please, and if I were lucky enough to win I'd buy floss for one of the many,(many;) HAEDs I have. And I definitely would use it!
Thanks for the chance:)

Happy blog anniversary!!!
Time is certainly flying by when we're having fun :)
So glad you're blogging, so glad to have met you & so glad to be your friend. Roll on the Retreat.
Please don't include me in your giveaway, I had a look at my stash page and think I have enough for now.
Good luck to all the participants.

Katie said...

Happy Anniversary!!! I'm so thankful we have grown to know each other. I look forward to your posts and love each one no rambling at all. Please enter me into your drawing. If I win I would get the new ornament kit that Tiffstitch is doing that we like so much and start it next CJC from 123stitch. LOL Then we could both smile at their cuteness again. I wish everyone who enters a lot of luck! I look forward to another year of you blogging.

Tricia T said...

Happy blogaversary, Rachel!! I'm beavering away on my HAED, so don't enter me in your draw... I would just buy another HAED!! :)

Preeti said...

Happy Blogaversary, Rachel!! Wish you many more crafty years ahead:)
I have no idea about specific crafty store with evouchers here. I can either use it for etsy etc. to purchase online pattern/chart else I can purchase needlework related book from online stores. I am not sure if that qualifies. If yes, then I would be glad to participate :)

Leigh said...

Happy blogoversary! I haven't commented much lately but I've been enjoying all your progress and finishes for the past year :) Please don't enter me in the giveaway, as I was lucky enough to win last year's and I'm still stitching away on the pattern I won!

Happy Blogaversary! Here's to the next two years and many more after that.
I'm torn between Patchwork Rabbit because I need some more Crescent Colours and SewandSo because I need everything they sell. Or Crafty Kitten to kickstart my layaway for my Birthday present!

Cath said...

Happy Blogoversary Rachel. I have so enjoyed reading your blog and look forward to many more years of your awesome posts. If I won, I would buy 14ct natural brown aida fabric. That is my favorite color to use.

Happy Blogoversary!!! Please enter me! I wouldn't know what exactly what to do with it, I would buy something to add to my stash, something I could stitch. Maybe some more cotton to start a cross stitch for my sister.

Thanks for the opportunity!

Congratulations on your blogiversary! And thank you for your generous giveaway. I would love to enter. I follow via email. If I were the lucky winner I would get the Reindeer kit by Jim Shore. Last year I did at least 7 of the Mill Hill ornament kits (not all Jim Shore), and I'm sure I would finish this one.

I've been eyeing the Spooky Halloween Sampler by Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery for the past month or would most certainly get that! be honest.....I'll probably end up going to get it! I really really like the chart!

Angela said...

Happy 2nd Blogoversary! I'd love a chance to win and if I did I would use it at 123 stitch which is my favorite online store and I'd purchase a Mirabilia design either Sabrina or Biancabella. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity :) Hope you enjoy blogging for many more years!

Tiffstitch said...

Happy Blogoversary! I would love to be entered in the drawing as well. Probably 123stitch for me as well for beads and threads I need to complete my Nora Corbett letters. :) Very generous of you!

Lindsay said...

Happy 2nd Blogoversary, may you have many more.
If I was lucky enough to win I'd go for sewandso so that I can get the NPI silks to start Magic Reindeer from AAN
