Today is my fourth blog anniversary. After all this time, I'm still enjoying writing my blog as much as I did when I first started it. Connecting with so many people from all around the world is a joy, so as a little thank you to you all, and as is now customary on my blog anniversaries, I'm having a little giveaway.
I couldn't resist picking up these fat quarters when I saw them, aren't they cute?
Creative Cotton Print yarn. I love variegated yarn, it means I can knit something in more than one colour without having to keep changing between different colours. Five little buttons, I saw these and thought they were so pretty.
A matryoshka notebook.
Heart pins, ideal for crafts as they're quite long. A little book of nail files to keep in your handbag. I'm always wishing I'd got a nail file in my bag when a nail breaks and I'm out and about.
I may also add something a little choclatey before the package is sent out.
So there you go, if you fancy being in with a chance of winning these goodies, just leave me a comment on this post before twelve noon on Thursday the 11th of September 2014. A name will be drawn at random soon after. If you mention my giveaway on your blog, I'll enter your name twice, just let me know that you've done it.
All that's left for me to do now is to thank each and every one of you who takes the time to read my posts, and especially those who comment, it really wouldn't be as much fun without you so thank you very much.
Happy Blog Anniversary Jo!ReplyDelete
Such beautiful, thoughtful items for the giveaway. Please don't enter me though. I have far too much crafting stuff, and I bite my nails!
Thank you. Tut tut, though I don't suppose you get soil stuck under them when you've been to the allotment. It takes ages to get it all out from under mine.Delete
Congratulations on your 4th blog anniversary! You have chosen a wonderful selection of giveaway goodies, the heart pins are adorable.ReplyDelete
Thank you. I have to confess that I bought myself some of the heart pins too, aren't they lovely?Delete
That's a lovely giveaway, I can only knit dish cloths, but wouldn't they look good!ReplyDelete
I knit my own dishcloths but I usually use plain old white or cream craft cotton. This yarn would make some lovely ones, and wash cloths too.Delete
What a lovely giveaway with lots of useful things. I would love to be entered please.
I had to buy those fat quarters as soon as I saw them, it think they're so cute. I'm not sure what I'd make with them though.Delete
Congrats on four years. When I first found you it was on your other blog and since then the pleasure of reading this blog has been fun...ReplyDelete
Thank you. I'm pleased you enjoy reading along.Delete
Congratulations, Jo! I really enjoy your blog. I would love to be entered in your giveaway. Thank you for the chance to win. :)ReplyDelete
Thank you. It's nice to know that you enjoy my ramblings. It's hard to know when you start off if anyone will actually read what you write.Delete
Congratulations Jo and thank you for a lovely giveaway!ReplyDelete
Thank you. My anniversary giveaways have become a little tradition now.Delete
Happy blogoversary! I read the whole of your blog this weekend, and it was fun to see how things (mostly the children) have changed in that time!ReplyDelete
Thank you. Wow! That must have taken some time. I don't think I can remember half of my posts now, I should go back and read them myself.Delete
Lovely giveaway! Count me in 😊 . Will pop it on my blog later. xxReplyDelete
Thank you. I've popped your name in the hat.Delete
Happy anniversary, doesn't time fly! I enjoy reading your blog and you have pointed me in the direction of some good reads too. Lovely giveaway, love to join in, thanks xcxReplyDelete
Thank you. Time certainly does fly, it doesn't seem like four years have passed since I started this blog. I'm pleased that you enjoy reading and have found some other blogs to read too.Delete
4 years wow. Haven't even been blogging a year yet so 4 years seems impossible!!!! Happy Blogaversary. xReplyDelete
Thank you. Four years passes in the blink of an eye, you'll be there before you know it.Delete
I would love to be entered in your giveaway! Happy Blogiversary!ReplyDelete
Thank you. I've popped your name in the hat.Delete
Happy anniversary, and well done with it being a second blog. It's something that I've never managed to keep going on a regular basis.ReplyDelete
It's good to see that you still enjoy blogging, as indeed I do, and I like your last paragraph which I agree with wholeheartedly.
Please don't enter me in the giveaway. Flighty xx
Thank you. Having two blogs can be quite time consuming, but while I'm still enjoying it, I'll keep going. It's wonderful to connect with people, I've made so many friends through blogging which is something I never bargained for when I started out.Delete
Happy anniversary Jo. Four years is amazing going! Please put me in your draw x I don't know whether Susan has been in touch since she has been over here but I suggested we all meet if possible for a coffee and cake? It would be great if you could make it xxReplyDelete
Thank you. I've popped your name in the hat. Yes, Susan has been in touch, it's just a case of finding a time which suits us all when we can meet.Delete
Happy blog anniversary, Please pop my name in the hat for a chance to win your giveaway goodies. It will be my 3 year blog anniversary next month, I had better put my thinking cap on for a nice giveaway too.ReplyDelete
Thank you. I've popped your name in the hat. It gets harder each year thinking what to include in my giveaways, I just hope that whoever wins likes it.Delete
I'll enter this time Jo, as I'm in UK at the moment, but I do so enjoy your blog. I don't read many, but love the ones I do and that is really enough for me. Fat quarters and you don't sew? The little package looks lovely. Four years and you're still going strong with 2 blogs. Clever girl. Take care.ReplyDelete
I'm really pleased that you enjoy my blog, it's been lovely getting to know you. I don't sew but I've got every intention to learn, and I do so love fabric, I just wish I knew what to do with it. I think the secret to longevity in blogging is enjoying it, and I certainly do.Delete
Happy blog anniversary, Jo. It's brilliant that you still enjoy blogging now as much as when you started. What a lovely giveaway - please would you put my name in the hat? Thank you also for popping by my blog and saying hello xReplyDelete
Thank you. I've put your name in the hat. You're welcome, I enjoy popping by your blog.Delete
Congratulations on your 4th anniversary, Jo. Please don't add me in for your giveaway - I have way too much crafty stuff! Good luck to all your other readers! :o)ReplyDelete
Thank you. Too much crafty stuff? I didn't think there was such a thing.Delete
Congratulations Jo - You have a great blog that's always honest and entertaining - it's great catching up with you. Hers to the next four years-and then some xReplyDelete
Thank you. It would be great if I was still here in another four years, we'll see.Delete
Just stopping by to say hello, Congratulations on your 4th year! I love the stuff you have on offer but I'm not going to enter to win it, as I'm trying to get rid of everything to begin an expat Journey! But I do wish you many more happy blogging years and I look forward to following you!
Thank you. Good luck with the decluttering, you don't want to be having to move things you don't need with you. I'd find it awfully hard to just keep essentials.Delete
Happy Anniversary......what a generous giveaway, please include me.ReplyDelete
Thank you. I've tried to include a variety of things in the giveaway, but I can't really get away from craft supplies. I've popped your name in the hat.Delete
Congratulations! I enjoy both your blogs but wonder how you mange to keep them going. I struggle with just one!ReplyDelete
Thank you. I think it's all the comments I receive which keep me going, I love to connect with like minded people, and I'm very nosey too so I like to read lots of blogs too.Delete
Congratulations Jo on such an auspicious occasion. What a delightful goodies for the lucky winner. Please don't enter me for the draw as I must be one of the world's worst crafters!ReplyDelete
Thank you. I don't believe that for a minute, there's so many crafts out there that there's something to suit everyone.Delete
Congratulations on your anniversary Jo. I look forward to many more years of reading what you have to share. Please don't enter me as I have won other giveaways so I would prefer that someone else have the chance to win. xxReplyDelete
Thank you. I hope to keep going for a few more years to come, though I wonder if I'll still have anything to say that I haven't said before.Delete
Congratulations! 4 years is absolutely amazing, well done :) And such a lovely generous giveaway, please enter me :) :) xxReplyDelete
Thank you. I never thought I'd still be here four years on but I'm so pleased I am. I've popped your name in the hat.Delete
What a pretty selection of things! I love the fabric, very sweet :) I'd love to be entered in the giveaway. Happy 4th anniversary, too - I have a habit of always missing mine! :-/

Thank you. I find it quite easy to remember my anniversaries as I started both my blogs on the 1st of the month. I loved the fabric as soon as I saw it and had to buy it.Delete
Happy 4th Blogiversary. You have done well. Thank you for a lovely giveaway :-) xReplyDelete
Thank you. I wasn't sure I'd still be here after four years but it's great that I am.Delete
Congratulations on your blog anniversary. My blog is about the same age as yours then - I started on 16th August 2010. I'm glad you are still enjoying writing, because lots of people lose their enthusiasm in much less time than this.ReplyDelete
Thank you. I've been going over five years on my other blog so this is still young by comparison, but I still enjoy writing both of them. I think it's the interaction with other bloggers which makes it so much fun.Delete
Blogaversary congratulations! My wife reads your blog, but doesn't like registering for anything *rolls eyes* and seemingly never has enough crafting stuff since she retired from Teaching! lolReplyDelete
Thank you. I'm so pleased that your wife reads my blog and I agree with her, you can never have enough crafting stuff.Delete
Congratulations Jo, thats a fabulous giveaway. The nail files are a great idea, i hate it if I get a snaggy bit when I'm knitting.ReplyDelete
I always enjoy reading your blog and admiring the beautiful items you knit and crochet, living quite close to you also reminds me of the lovely places I must visit sometime too. X
Thank you. I've got a bit of a thing about my nails, I always cut them short and hate it if I get a sharp bit so I think I'd better get one of those nail file books for myself. I've got lots of posts lined up about the places we've visited lately so I hope you get some more inspiration for places to visit yourself.Delete
Congratulations on your blogging anniversary, that is some commitment!
I would love to win your giveaway
Thank you. I love keeping my blogs going but sometimes, as just lately, I'm so busy that I don't have chance to blog about the things I've done. I'll catch up eventually though. I've popped your name in the hat, good luck.Delete
Congratulations on four years, I have only just started mine, thankyou for a lovely giveaway.ReplyDelete
