The sun has popped his head out once again in our neck of the woods and it has made me in the mood for a blog giveaway. This will be for October and there will be a new one in November and December as well.
I am getting excited that school has started which means the Holidays are around the bend. Yes, I said it Holidays. Can you believe it ? This is the first contest of the season. Have fun, tell all your friends to come join us for the chance to win some neat things.
Get your name in by doing the following ...............

1. Leave a comment about why you enjoy blogging and something fun you have learnt along the way. Have you found an awesome recipe on a blog, you can send us to ? Is there a fun swap going on now ? Is there something that you want us to check out on your blog, or a friends blog ? Do you have a contest you want to mention ? What are you doing for Halloween ? Going to a Party or staying home watching how cute all the kids look that come to the door ?
I am having fun meeting new friends and learning where they are from, so for a second chance to win, Copy and Paste my " Grab my button" and put it on your blog and let your friends know to come join the fun, so I can put your name in the hat for a 2nd time.
I will be adding a prize each week to this contest so keep checking back and see what goodies have been added for the week. I am starting this off with the first prize being a very beautiful pillow a friend of mine made. She does gorgeous work and it will look lovely on a chair or bed. It measures 18 in. by 12 in. with the ruffle. Do you have a friend that would love this or is it going to be for you ? You get to decide.
Have fun... Kath'


  1. That is awesome. Count me in for #1 because I am a followers and for #2- I have made so many personal relationships with ladies online while blogging. Even though most of us have never met, I feel like a have sisters that I never had, an extra mom or two, a few aunts, and a gradmother as well. I love it!

  3. Hi, Kath, your blog is very pretty, seems to me like you have changed it since I last visited. I particularly like the teacup at the top. You've done a wonderful job. Your pillow is very pretty. I enjoy blogging because I like to meet new online friends. I also enjoy viewing different blogs, I've learned from them how to set up my own blog. I just put a lovely recipe for vanilla almond raspberry cake on my blog today. It's perfect for tea time. Take care, pinkie sister.

  9. I enjoy reading blogs because of the information and tutorials that other quilters post. I do not have my own blog, yet enjoy exchanging emails when replies to my comments are made. On Halloween my brother has a hayride where takes wee little ones across the fields with our house being "the stop" for candy and apples. It is so much fun going out to the wagon and behaving like cut-up kids (especially my 80 years young mom) with the ages 5 and under bunch.

  10. Hi Kath, I found your blog through The Rusty Thimble and I'm now a new follower! I love meeting other crafters and finding new recipes...the essence of my blogging..lol. Each Tuesday I'm hosting a link up of handmade items entitled Tuesday's Treasures..stop by and have a peek.
    And for an additional entry in your giveway, I'm posting your button on my blog as well.
