Blog Birthday Number 2 and a Giveaway!



Well, today is the second anniversary of my blog's birth! 2 years filled with inspiration and new friends and in celebration of that fact I am going to have a little giveaway......one of my mini baby blankies (about 20cm by 20cm) with a design of the winner's choice - it can be all embroidered or can include little elements of coloured felt as I have quite a few colours now).  

Leave your comment (and perhaps an idea of what you'd like to see on the blankie) by the end of Friday (wherever you are) the 6th of February and I'll make the draw over the weekend.

Here are a few examples made over the last couple of years......








Thank you to all the blog readers and commenters out there!

What a wonderful giveaway! I love the rabbits and veggies (especially the pumpkins.) So lovely. And have a great time in Japan, Di - I'm so jealous! I was there about a year ago, and would go back in a heartbeat.

Happy 2nd year of blogging. I'm a bit of a newbie but am finding it a fun and addictive past time and a great techo way to make friends from afar. Thanks for visiting thingamejigs!

Happy blog b-day to you! Must be a good day for the two of us. I thought about doing a giveaway too but it snuck up on me. Maybe my 200th post, which isn't far away. Love the blankets, they're adorable.

Ari's blanket still gets lots of loving around here! I love the laundry line one too!

Maybe a goose girl with baby geese :) but maybe you already made that one :) They are all my favorites ! By the way your cake looks fantastic too and so is your new banner ! xoxo

Happy Bloggy Birthday, Di!

I love reading about your travels and makes and only wish I had less work so I could visit more :-)

On a blankie I would love to see the trees again with a tortoise underneath...and bunnies too!

p.s. thank you for your lovely comment on my blog :)

Hello Di and Happy Bloggybirthday!
I love your sookies, or teetees as my grandmother would have said. Where do those silly words come from? I love them. If I was chosen (please, please) I would wish for the bunnies and the sweet pea vines, you pictured in a previous post. It is snowing out my window as I write and will probably continue to do so for at least the next two months, maybe three, please not four. I live in South Central Alaska and I have to take Spring anyway I can. Cheers to you. Anna

Happy Blog Birthday! The blankies are adorable, hard to choose a favorite theme. I think the one with the washing line is very sweet, and funny with the underware!

samantha said...

Happy Birthday Di - I can't possibly decide because all the little blankies are so lovely, although I do particularly like the fish.

P.s. if only the fancy flyscreens get the heat out too!

Manoute said...

Joyeux blogganniversaire Di! Your blankets are fab. I love the ones with pumpkins or flowers but they are all gorgeous.

PS: don't include me in the draw, I don't really need a blanket, no baby in the pipeline ;oD

Belated blog birthday greetings!! Another thing I'm devastated about is that I missed the chance of winning one of your beautiful blankies! Must try harder!

Don't hate me because I totally missed your blog anniversary!! I never even celebrated mine. I think we both started around the same time. Remind me next year and we'll celebrate together!!!
LOVE YOU DI!!!!!!
