Over Four Years Ago

I started blogging over four years ago and it transformed my life in many ways. It brought me into a world of fabulous inspiration, sharing and, best of all, friendship. I thank you all for that. 

With this in mind, I decided that it had been way too long since I gave anything away here. So, I found a tin. 


And I found some fabric.


I put the fabric in the tin. 


And Bob's your uncle, I have something to send to one of you. If you would like five FQs of low volume fabric, and five FQs of mostly blenders (and the tin obviously) then please do leave a comment here. Who knows, your name may be the one Mr RNG picks this time round. 

Rules? Not many. You can be anywhere in the world. Leave a comment, but please only one comment. If you are not sure whether or not you are a no reply blogger leave an email I can contact you at. If you don't then, sorry, but I will redraw and pick someone else's name. Trust me, it's happened before and more people are no reply bloggers than they realise. Hint, if you leave comments on blogs and never, ever get replies then you may be one of them. Oh, and Google+ has a habit of turning you into one on a regular basis without you knowing. I know this because it happened to me too many times to mention - I fixed it by dropping Google +. Ha! 

Okay, where were we? Rules. Leave a comment and contact details. That's it. I hate jumping through hoops so have no desire to make you do them for me. I will do the draw on Monday, February 23rd sometime around lunchtime here in the UK, as I will be back from my holidays and have regular wifi again.

A big thanks for reading my blog, offering support and advice on a regular basis, and being part of this online community. 

Susan 

PS: While I try to reply to blog comments as often as possible, with a giveaway there isn't a chance I will manage so I'll just say thanks for entering here - if you choose to enter that is. 

GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED, THANK YOU.
