A Giveaway!!

I've been beavering away lately making this blockholder.
I do like making these; I think it's because they are practical, pretty and achievable.
Pages of cotton batting to keep blocks cozy and safe

I've also been thinking about celebrating...Since I have been blogging I have passed special milestones like first post, 10th post, 50th post, 100 post (and so on), I've also had 1st blog birthday, 2nd blog birthday; 1st follower, 100 followers - and all these have passed by without a celebration...
This month is my birthday month so I have decided that NOW is the time to celebrate!!!
So without further ado, I introduce to you, my FIRST EVER giveaway!!!

If you would like to win this Block holder, carefully designed and crafted by moi, just leave a comment on this post. You do need to be a follower (old or new) and of course you need to be contactable (ie not a no-reply commenter).
I'm happy to post to anywhere in blogland. I'll keep this open until 31st July.

[And because I've got so many patterns and ideas from others in blogland, I will have the pattern for this available for you to download  - probably next week when I have finshed writing up the instructions and have worked out properly how to do the google.doc thing! I'll let you know when that happens :-) ]
Thanks for joining me in my celebrations!! Happy stitching,

I've never heard of a blockholder before but this looks brilliant - what a great idea. That said, I'd need about a dozen of them as I tend to have a lot of projects on the go at one time!! :).

p.s. Happy Birthday! This is my birthday month too.

This is a lovely project--and I do love how practical it is, but you have made it beautiful as well. Very generous of you to offer us a gift for your birthday. Seems like it should be the other way around. : )
Happy birthday to you!
