Yo! Is It Time For a Giveaway?! YES, it is!

 

IT’S GIVEAWAY TIME!

I know that it’s a little past Blueberry season.  But even so, I’m sure someone out there would like to win this cute little “Blueberry Tart” pin cushion.

 

I had some little wool blueberries left over from an order that I just finished, so not wanting them to go to waste, I made this.

Isn’t it cute? I even made 3 little blueberry straight pins to go with it.  It’s tiny .. measuring only about 1 1/2” high and about 2” across.

It’s  in a little black tart tin and made with my hand-dyed wools.

The blueberries are stuffed with wool roving and the tart itself is stuffed with tiny wool clippings.  (wool clippings give it a little more weight than poly fiber fill)

I’ll make this giveaway simple and easy…..

Just make a comment in this post for an entry.

Thursday night at 10pm, my time, (Eastern Standard Time) I will draw a name from those who have entered.  I will announce the winner Friday morning.

The only rule is that the entry MUST be in THIS POST ONLY.

AND

If you have a blog, you MUST be a “Follower”.  Join up to win!

If you don’t have a blog but are a regular reader, you’re welcome to enter also.  Just post as “anonymous” but please leave your name or some way that I may identify you if your entry is selected.

I can’t leave out my lovely Canadian/international readers so this is open to all of you too. 

 

I also have a larger Blueberry Tart Pin Cushion listed on Ebay.

It’s listed at the starting price of only .99 so if you don’t win the little one and would like to purchase one, go HERE to visit the one on EBAY.

It’s just a little larger than the Giveaway but it has lots more blueberries along with 5 blueberry stick pins.

I’ve said this before, I love LOVE doing auctions that start out as just .99.

It’s so much fun to watch the bidding throughout the week.   I hope it’s fun for the bidders too.  I know that thrill of winning something at a bargain price and even if I don’t get the price that I hope to get for it, the fun of hearing how thrilled the winner is to get it at such a great price, is worth it.

 

Happy Day Everyone!

Your little blueberries inspired me to make them last year for a crocheted runner that was Mom's birthday gift. Put cherries and blackberries on it also. The french knots made the blackberries so realistic too. Your work is so charming and your tips are so helpful. Thank you. Peggy

Funny I just dug out a bunch of wool remnants last night and washed them (twice!) trying to get the mothball smell out, with the intention to make an old-fashioned penny rug. And here I am now at your blog!

arlyce said...

The tart is adorable. Loved your story on the gnat...it" happened here, same results!

MosaicMagpie said...

I thought for sure I had left a comment yesterday. Maybe something was up with Blogger?!?
Now I know what I will do with this, put it right next to my chair and sit and admire it! And occasionally if a pin is nice to me I will allow it to rest on the pinkeep for awhile.

I feel guilty entering another giveaway. I recently won something from another blog (still waiting to see what!) and don't want to hog all the winnings. But, you can enter me anyways! :-)

Ok, I am guilty! I was one of the lurkers yesterday but, I was at work and responding was a no-no! I love the blue berries and would love to have this little treasure, thanks for the giveaway!

Mary said...

Guilty too. It's just so hard to get my hopes up and then not win.
It's not that I think any less of your beautiful pincushion.
