a giveaway

I have decided I am going to host a giveaway! I have been thinking about it for a few weeks...months it's hard to know how long and thought I would do it when I hit 300 posts...but that seems to be a while a way yet! So heck I am throwing caution to the wind and putting it out there.  
Now this isn't any fancy giveaway like this one over here  ... it's a more modest giveaway for those faithfuls that read my blog! (because I was starting to wonder if anyone did...SO this is my way of saying thank you and for all your lovely comments!)
All you have to do is leave a comment on this post telling me your favourite thing to make. Now it wouldn't be fair if I asked you to tell me what your favourite thing to make and I didn't tell you what mine was! My favourite thing to make is badges. I bought a badge maker last year and had big dreams of selling them and filling the world with badge love...well I've been doing the second part just not so much of the first part! So that's what you will be winning some pretty badges and magnets made from recycled me!

So to enter become a follower if you are not already, leave a comment telling me your favourite thing to make and the winner will be drawn (randomly) and announced on Monday 19th July 2010! 
So come on tell me...what's your favourite thing to make!?


  1. Just one favourite thing? That's very hard to choose! Something I'm working on now is a cross stitch, which I love... I also love making sweet things in the kitchen... I could go on, but will leave it at that!! Great idea about the giveaway! xxx

  2. Mmmm... making babies? Yep - making babies is fun for the most part... the start is really good but come to think about it the end of the process is pretty awful and it does take the best part of a year. Still the finished product is out-of-this-world awesome and smells really sweet too.
    Of course I like to make other things to... crochet, sewing, embroidery... I wanna give making badges a go too ... but nothing compares to making a baby.

  3. oh! i love your badges! I have been on the lookout for a badgemaker as well!

    My most favorite thing to make right now are quilts. I am slowly making my way through my stash and making quilts for all of my family members. I also like to make cupcakes! :)

  4. I enjoy making things for other people. I love picking out the fabric that they might like, choosing a project or design that suits them or what they need. I wish I could make more gifts! I don't have many things that I keep for it seems like a good excuse to buy fabric when it's not REALLY for me ;)

  5. CAKES! They seem to make people so happy - if only they'd last a bit longer though :)

    (I'm not participating in the giveaway, I just wanted to tell you how much I love cakes. I still have the little drawstring bag filled with your badges!)

  6. in between tearing down chimneys and breaking up floors and dreaming about the near future, when the renovation should actually begin to look like something livable in (swallow), i mamaged last night, to hook a few grannies. so, it's safe to say my favourite thing at the moment, the thing to relax me even, is a granny square or two.
    the badges look great! oooohhh, i'm in time to participate. :)

  7. I was just looking at your lovely fridge think oh my how do I get myself some of those super cute magnets and her they are/

    I love to make funky tote bags and I'm about to start selling them too.

  8. my most favourite thing to make - is to make people laugh as well as something out of nothing! I know that's not the answer expected but betcha smiled! xo.
