Happy Blogaversary to Me!

My goodness! I've been blogging away for three years! I've gone through two years of A-levels, started at University, moved out of my family home, met the love of my life and stitched so many things, I couldn't recount them all :)
I think blogging is such a blessing in my life. Not only have I learnt so much, from new finishing techniques to previously undiscovered designers, but I've met so many wonderful people. I bet if I met some of them in person, they would greet me with a warm hug and a plate of cookies :) You know who you are! I truly believe it's an amazing to connect with people half way around the world with our craft. I feel special to play a part in this community :)

Onto the celebration! For my third blogaversary, I am naturally hosting a giveaway :) The theme is things I like, but that I think one lucky follower would like too.

As you all know, I work in Cath Kidston. I'm also a big fan of Autumn, it's my favourite season. So this sweet squirrel pin cushion from CK fits the bill for one of my favourite things. He'll be in the parcel, along with a WDW Lucky thread. Green is my favourite colour :)


I LOVE chocolate. I love chocolate so much, I had to buy choc for my giveaway that I'm not allowed to eat so that I wouldn't gobble it up :P I'm throwing in some pretty bias binding in the parcel too.


I may add a few little piece in the bag, but the next major thing will be a stitched piece made by me. To keep it fun, I won't reveal what it is until I pick the winner. But I will tell you it's a Country Cottage Needleworks design! Because that's my favourite designer :)

I hope you would like to join me in celebrating my blogaversary. To have your name in the pot, just leave a comment below with an email addy :) There's no need to pass on the message on your own blog, but that would be very lovely if you chose to. The giveaway is open to all, anywhere in the world. I shall pick a winner in just over a week's time on Wednesday 24th April.

Good luck to everyone! Here's to the next year of stitchy goodness :)

Happy 3rd blogoversary! I just celebrated mine also.

I had never heard of Cath Kidston until I read about it on your blog. That inspired me to look at some of the Cath Kidston fabric on etsy-so cute!

Your giveaway is sweet. Please include me!

Gosh, I can't believe it has been three years already, Bekca!! And I'm amazed that you've been able to keep up your blog through two years of university :)

Yes, blogging can open up whole new worlds, can't it? I'm still amazed at all of the friends, worldwide, whom I've "met" over the 4 years that I've been blogging!

Would love to enter your giveaway--thanks so much for the chance...
