blogtoberfest - GIVEAWAY

In celebration of finishing my first ever crocheted granny square and more importantly being on the home stretch to the end of blogtoberfest I am having my first ever giveaway!



After much consideration I have decided to giveaway a drawstring library bag, printed by yours truly with green sheep and sewn with french seams (of course!), plus a copy of the board book Where is the Green Sheep? (don't worry it is new - I'd be too ashamed to show you our copy which has almost literally be digested)

If you don't have a toddler of your own, or know any toddlers at all that you could gift the prize to, you could always wrap it and put it under one of those many charitable Christmas trees that will be sure to pop up around the place over the next few weeks.

So to be in the running leave a comment here on this post. If you follow me then you get an extra entry (but I'm not making it easy for you and putting that button on my blog because every time I see it the song from Sister Act gets stuck in my head which drives me to distraction!)

I'll post anywhere that a regular postal service will deliver mail to.

Entries close midnight 30 October - my time (there is a handy clock on my blog to help you figure out when that will be) and I'll draw the winner randomly on 31 October.

  2. Hooray for the granny square! I love that library bag and I think our copy of that book looks like yours so we could do with a new copy of that too. Oh and of course I follow your blog too. Thanks for putting that song in my head for the rest of the day.

  3. my children love this book and I've given countless copies away as presents. I'm so glad I found your giveaway as we've lost our copy (or it's very well hidden!). The library bag is great as well.
