Giveaway time!!!

I've been planning to have a giveaway for a long time. For more than a year I've been blogging regularly and I didn't know my world would change in such a lovely way. I have met so many kind, generous, loyal, encouraging and dear friends. Thank you all for being there and having met you!!!

This giveaway is for all my loyal and regular visitors! I'd prefer you not to mention it on your blog. That way you also have a bigger chance to win (O: To my list I will also add those who do email with me about quilting and the things I make, but are unable to leave behind a comment.
All you have to do is leave behind a comment and be sure you have a reply mail. Tell me which giveaway you would prefer and why. The first winner is allowed to choose first, then the second etc. The fifth winner will get the 'left over'.
I chose patterns by some of my favorite designers.

The winners will be announced on December 1st

Gail Pan's 'friendship warms the heart' with the recommended threads included.

'A tisket a tasket' by Pieces from my Heart with some batik fabric.

'Butterful Magic' a bag pattern with stichery by Giggle Buttons. The sweet buttons are included.

Cinderberry Stitches 'The needle keeper' with the recommended threads included.

And finally a pattern by Melly & Me 'Black Forest', with three matching half fat quarters.

!!!!! GOOD LUCK !!!!!

Finally my last Christmas Wish block that I made together with Lyn, Karin and Melanie. It is now time to finish the quilt (O: We set a date to finish the whole quilt in three weeks. Enough time to send it abroad then so it will be there by Christmas!

Look what the postman brought me yesterday. Isn't this just wonderful!!! It's the Moda Bake Shop Sampler. It's a great way to preview the new spring Moda 2010 collections. A booklet is also added to it, with a collection of templates, layouts and the history of charm quilts.
It is so much fun to look at it and touch the fabrics!

'In the middle of every dificulty lies opportunity.'
- Albert Einstein

PS: I finished my Advent Calendar top and quilted it. For the sashing I used the fabric with the trees. Thank you for your advise! I will post it as soon as it is finished.
There are no Web Sampler Celbration blocks this time, since I am still waiting for the last two to arrive.

I am so glad you are just keeping this giveaway to your friends who visit. I love the Magic Butterfly bag but all the prizes are great. Terry says John is doing somewhat better.

Wat leuk een give away. En wat geef je veel weg, je bent veel te goed. Ik ga natuurlijk voor de tassen, maak niet veel uit welke, als ik win mag jij het bepalen wat ik mag krijgen. Maar ik win toch bijna nooit iets. Ik heb geluk in de liefde..... Die doos is wel heel erg mooi, waar heb je die nou weer gevonden..
Liefs Mai

Hallo Simone,
Deine "A Christmas Wish" Blöcke sind echt toll geworden, bin schon auf Dein fertiges Top gespannt.
Wünsche Dir noch einen schönen Sonntagabend.
Liebe Grüße

Lotusblüte zei

Liebe Simone, ich danke Dir auch für Deine lieben Kommentare, welche Du immer bei mir hinterläßt und für die schönen Dinge, die ich schon von Dir erhalten habe. Dein Blog ist so liebevoll gestaltet und all die Dinge, die Du immer machst sind einfach zauberhaft. Ich bin so froh, daß es Dich in der Bloggerwelt gibt und staune, was Du für schöne Giveaways für uns bereit hältst. Alles, alles Liebe weiterhin für Dich und auf Dein neuestes Werk bin ich schon wieder ganz gespannt :o)) Sei ganz lieb gedrückt von Gaby

Annelies zei

I do love the stitchery of Cinderberry Stitches. I am a stitchery addict and in need of a needle keeper.

Lotusblüte zei

Ich habe ganz vergessen zu schreiben, daß mir alle Giveaways gefallen und ich würde mich freuen, wenn ich eines gewinnen würde :O))) GGLG Gaby

Doina zei

Great giveaway! I like the pattern by Melly & Me 'Black Forest', with three matching half fat quarters.

Annifee zei

Wow, Simone wie großzügig ist das denn!!
Eigentlich wollte ich ja nicht mehr an den Verlosungen teilnehmen, aber ich möchte dir gerne zum "Einjährigen" gratulieren und bei diesen tollen Geschenken kann ich auch nicht widerstehen. Wenn ich mir was aussuchen dürfte, würde ich mich wohl für die Tasche entscheiden. Aber auch der Needle-Keeper ist ja so süß. Bin jetzt schon sehr auf die Verlosung gespannt.
Ganz liebe Grüße von Annifee

Amanda zei

What a lovely idea Simone, and what great gifties. I'd love to win the Tisket a Tasket most I think as it's modern looking and with such great colours, just what I need for my lounge.

Jackie zei

The Sampler box is so cute! I can't wait to see what you do with it!

You finished the advent calendar in no time at all!

Congratulations on one year of blogging!

Terry zei

Wat een leuke give-away! Normaal durf ik niet op engelstalige sites te reageren omdat mijn engels niet zo geweldig is...
Leuke weblog heb je, ik ga het zeker vaker bezoeken.

debbie zei

Oh my goodness, I think I am first to comment. Thank you for offering such lovely prizes, all the patterns are beautiful. Next year we are coming to Norway on a cruise, I can't wait it looks so beautiful. I hope number 1 is lucky this time.
Debbie from Australia.

debbie zei

Hi again Simone,
I forgot to say which I would like to win, it would have to be cinderberry stitches needlekeeper. I have a few of her patterns and she is my favorite designer, she is a lovely lady and very talented. Have you seen the Homespun magazine with her bag in it? It is called Baguette. I love it and can't wait to start sewing it.

Shari zei

Hi Simone - it's been wonderful to get to know you through blogland. You really are an inspiration to me with all that you accomplish - you are far more disciplined than me! Have fun with your (very generous) giveaway... if I win you can send me what's 'leftover' lol. You have selected just lovely prizes so any of them would be great.

That Moda sampler looks interesting... what size are the squares? I am so resisting buying fabric - and that sure is hard!! I know you will make something wonderful...

Cybele's patch zei

Simone, wat een geweldige give away. Wauw, ben helemaal onder de indruk. Wat je weggeeft is allemaal even leuk en ik kan moeilijk kiezen. Hoewel de Giggle knoopjes zijn zo vreselijk leuk.
Wat heb je jezelf getracteerd op heerlijke stofjes. Zo'n mooie combinatie. Tot gauw, ik ben weer thuis!

Dolores zei

Simone, you are so generous with your giveaway. I would love to see the completed advent calendar when it is all done.
If I was a lucky winner, I would choose the Butterfly Magic bag and buttons.

Jo in TAS zei

Such lovely things to giveaway. I have always loved the Cinderberry Stitches pattern, it looks so sweet!
Our worlds just wouldn't be the same without all the bloggy friendships we've made!
Hugs to you

Sarah zei

Oh oh oh pick MEEEEEEEE. Those are all a LOVELY collections of goodness YUM!

mandapanda zei

Oooh! What a fabulous giveaway! and I'm the first to comment! lol I love the Melly and Me bag, and I really do need a new bag so that would be fabulous! But I love Gail Pan's design too! choices choices! lol
Fingers crossed! Hugs! Manda

mandapanda zei

Yay! First to comment! Do number one commenters ever win?? Here's hoping! I love the Melly and me bag, but any one of your prizes would be excellent! Fingers crossed!
Hugs! Manda

Cattinka zei

What a lovely giveaway and what lovely prices. I like them all, but the Gail Pan pattern and the floss is my favourite, because I like to handstitch a lot, and I like the colours of this project a lot.

simplestitches zei

Hi Simone,
wow, what a generous giveaway!

Love your Moda Bakeshop Sampler...(where did you get it from?) I think you will have a lot of fun with all those gorgeous charm packs!

Your Web Sampler Celbration blocks are looking wonderful, can't wait to see the finished quilt...love the colours you are using.

take care and talk soon

Melanie zei

Morning Simone, wow what a wonderful giveaway or 5 you are having. The Needle Keeper set looks so wonderful. I keep meaning to look all co ordinated in class with matchign bits but it hasn't happened yet. LOL

Great work on the CW block.

The Sampler looks great for inspiration.

maria zei

Hi Simone, what a generous give-away.
I think I would go for the Melly and Me bag pattern as I normally use my own designs when I make bags so it would be a change to make a bag from a pattern.

Shiree zei

Hi Simone,
yes you are so right, there are sooo many wonderful blogging friends out there, totally amazing!!

Linda zei

wow Simone such a generous giveaway!!! so many lovely things you are parting with. I do love Cinderberry Stitches and just as much Giggle Buttons so I would be truly happy with either of those lovely patterns, too hard to chose!!

Loralynn zei

That Moda sampler box looks like so much fun to play with!! What a wonderful thing you are doing by giving away so many lovely goodies! I think my favorite has to be the Cinderberry Stitches needle keeper. I seem to have a love affair with needlebooks and pincushions! I love to make them!

Annelein Design zei

Hi Simone, nice giveaway!

I like "Friendship" and "The Needlekeeper". Stitcheries are fun making.

The patterns are both lovely. Each had there one charme.

Have fun reading all the messages!

Hugs, Willeke

gertvr zei

Jeetje, wat een leuke giveaway zeg, en wat een leuke prijzen. Hopelijk ga je nog vele jaren door met bloggen ^_^ Ik vind het patroon van Cinderberry Stitches helemaal geweldig. Ik vind haar "beestjes" die ze in de stitcheries verwerkt altijd zo grappig.

Satu zei

Dear Simone, Happy bloganniversary!!!
I couldn't either imagine how much more happiness this blogging thing is bringing to my life. Simone, thank you for being so skilful, supportive and kind blogging friend;)

Stina zei

What a fantastic land "blogland" is.. friends just around the corner!! Glad you are here and inspire!!
What a fantastic designer giveaway you have... :o) tough to choose.. hmmm... Sandy, Gail or Melly... well I dont know..:o)

Dragon's Dolphin zei

Hey Simone, You are SOOOO generous with this giveaway! I can't believe all the wonderful stuff you've included! I think the Melly & Me Black Forest bag is my favorite (and I love the fat quarters you've picked to go with it). I love making bags for my friends and daughters--but have yet to make one for myself! So maybe this will be my chance to make one for myself. Of course I think the Giggles & Buttons is too cute, too.

Bev C zei

Goodmorning Simone, Congratulations on your near completition of your Christmas Wishes Quilt.I can see why you fell in love with the Moda Charm Pack,just beautiful.If I was lucky enough to win a prize I would love to win A tisket a Tasket. The pattern and lovely material just called out to me. Love you quote you had on this posting. Happy days to you all Simone.

Renee zei

what a generous giveaway Simone! I am tempted by those moda charm samplers too - they look lke fun!

bluebird-lyn zei

Hallo Lieve Simone, what a lovely giveaway....love a chance to win.....Hugs Lyn

Sherri zei

Fun giveaway! I would choose the Cinderberry Stitches pattern! Can't wait to see what you do with your Moda sampler squares...aren't they wonderful?!

Sharon (Stitches on Mars) zei

Hi Simone,
Congratulations for blogging for just over a year. I, too am finding its opening up the world for me. I also love reading your quotes. If I won, I would love the Butterfly pattern. I'm just discovering bags (not that I've completed thhe one I've started and I love stitchery too, so it would be perfect.
Hope you continue to find blogging rewarding.

Jutta...stoffundnadel... zei

Hallo liebe Simone,
das ist eine ganz zauberhafte Idee, ein Freundschafts-give away anzubieten!!! Du hast Recht, durch das Bloggen habe ich auch gute Kontakte knüpfen können, ich möchte es nicht mehr missen.
Und du bietest gleich fünf verschiedene Geschenke an, also, wenn ich mir etwas davon aussuchen dürfte, dann würde ich Gail Pan's 'friendship warms the heart' aussuchen, erstens passt das perfekt zu deiner Idee und zweitens liebe ich die Designs von Gail !!!
Dein letzter Christmas Wish Block ist wieder sehr schön geworden, und um deine Moda-Stoffe beneide ich dich.
Ganz liebe Grüße, hab einen schönen Tag, deine Jutta

Laurie zei

Hi Simone! I haven't visited in a few days and look how much fun you are having! A giveaway is great fun - so many comments to read. You have blessed us with a lot of choices! I love bags, so my choice would be the Melly and Me pattern if I was chosen. Thank you for a chance to win! I was wondering what the Sampler Pack from Moda would be like - it looks wonderful! I can't wait to see what you create with some of the fabrics :) Het is aardig dat een patroonboek ook inbegrepen is!

Leanne zei

Your Moda sampler looks interesting. What a nice giveaway. I think I would choose the Cinderberry stitches pattern because I love her stitcheries.

Messy Karen zei

such thoughtful pairings. i love all the Gail Pan designs. but if i could i would choose the Cinderberry Stitches one. can't wait to see your advent! and just in time our magic blocks are done.

Ariane zei

Wow!!What a great giveaway!!! I love all the packages you are giving away. But my favorite is the Cinderberry Stitches Needle Keeper. I love your last Christmas Wish Block. It's wonderful. I also love your Sampler Pack from Moda. I need to get one of these. I would love to see all the fabrics they are making. Thanks for the wonderful giveaway!!! Hugs Ariane

Jantine zei

Wat een lief gebaar. Weet je dat je hetzelfde zegt als ik van plan was... zeg het vooral niet door, dit is voor mijn trouwe lezers. Nou ja, dat ben ik bij jou, dus ik durf wel mee te doen ;-)
Moet ik echt kiezen? Dat is bijna onmogelijk! Het allermooist vind ik het patroon van Cinderberry stitches of de tas van Melly and Me!
Ik leef graag je blog, maar dat weet je

Micki zei

Congrats on the giveaway, and I always love patterns, as they are so much fun! As you will have a few winners, that will be so much fun! Thanks for a lovely giveaway package! You are such a dear!

I have looked at your blog many many times because I think, you make so beatiful and different things.
Unfortunately I don't have my own blog but looking at and sewing some of the projects gives me also so much pleasure.

Congratulations for one year in blogland!
Such a great and beautiful giveaway to celebrate!!!! Thanks for the chance.
The choice is not easy. I like Black Forest pattern by Melly and Me (I don't make a bag for ages!) but I love those thread colours from "The needle keeper" and, and I do love everything...
Thanks again!

Wat leuk dat je een give-away doet omdat je een jaar blogt. Ik vind het erg leuk om bij jou rond te sneupen. Ik kan alleen niet kiezen tussen gail pan en de needle keeper....
Ik ga toch voor Gail Pan!!
