Blogtoberfest Day 2: Tips and a Giveaway


Crikey! What an amazing response to Blogtoberfest this year. I'm super excited about the number of bloggers who have signed up to play along. I'm going to try to get around to visit everyone by the end of the month.

Firslty, I need your help dear Blogtoberfesters....

Just to make things easier with the Giveaway Loot List, please use the following tips:

  • Post your giveaway on your blog - be sure to include an end date
  • Email me the link to your post and include the end date - mscurlypops (at) gmail (dot) com
  • Please specify somewhere within your post whether you are happy to post overseas or not (it gets expensive with heavy items).
  • I will endeavour to update the list twice a day - unless I get hit by a giant stein full of cold beer.
Now to the fun stuff - I'm going to have a giveaway each Friday of Blogtoberfest. There are no rules to my giveaway. If you'd like to win the prize just leave me a comment (Pick Me will do).


I will draw the winner at 8.30 PM Melbourne time next Thursday night 8th Blogtober.

You can win this lovely vintage embroidery book which has lots of stitching tips and techniques, projects, and patterns. I seem to keep collecting embroidery books but I never embroider anything so I think I should share them with someone who will actually use them.

I'll also include some vintage fat quarters and some chocolate.

I'll post this to anywhere in the world so Happy Blogtoberfesting!

Sandra @ Pepperberry & Co. said...

It definitely is all a-happenin' at Blogtoberfest!! I've just signed up and am so excited :-)

Now, I recently fell in love with embroidery when I interviewed the gorgeous Eva from Apple & Eve for my Tuesday Tales. I had no idea it could be so beautiful! Since then I've been playing around with it a bit, but I'm still at the basic-back-stitch-in-a-crooked-line level :-)

The point is, this book would be a perfect kick-start to my new embroidery hobby! So pretty please, pick me :-) You can eve have the very first thing I embroider :-)
