Here it is, the real 200th post! (Unless you count the 200th post from yesterday. Which I don’t.)

I’ve had a lot of fun with this blog and it’s been great ‘meeting’ others who enjoy all manner of craftiness too. Thank you for all your comments and inspiration – I love being part of this online community!

I thought I’d have another giveaway to celebrate and this is what was on offer this time:

– either a five point star or a hearts desire doily…

– a custom made crochet and wooden bead necklace…

– and the final mystery gift…

a crochet cushion cover!

I used the wonderful Lucy’s Summer Garden Granny Square pattern – so easy to follow with fantastic colourful photos for each step.

(Please excuse the ends poking out through various holes – I only just managed to finish it yesterday and I haven’t had time to sort out all the ends yet!)

I employed my usual high-tec name generator – names in the hat of wonders!

Here they are all folded up (so they don’t stick to each other!)

And the winner is…

Congratulations Tamara! Let me know which doily you’d like and the colour you would prefer. And I’ll email you with options for the necklace 🙂

Sorry to the rest of you, but keep your eyes open for the next giveaway – I’m sure I’ll feel the need for another one in a month or two!

I noticed when I posted yesterday that I am getting very close to my 200th post – how exciting! It’s also getting pretty close to my birthday – something else that’s very exciting! So to celebrate these two exciting events I’ve decided to have a giveaway! So many exclamation marks!!!

The winner can choose between a Hearts Desire Doily…

…or a Five Point Star Doily.

DSCN5046

This can be made in red, cream, white, pink, pale blue, pale green or pale yellow – is that enough choice?! (Read about the first time I made these patterns here.)

In addition, the winner will also receive a custom made crochet and wooden beaded necklace, similar to this one.

DSCN5352

The winner can pick the colour and length of their choice.

There may also be one or two other goodies added over the next couple of weeks – watch this space!
