I seem to be finding an awful lot of these giveaways this month. I think everyone is fed up with winter and wants Spring to burst forth. Is having a giveaway just another method of spring cleaning, clearing the cobwebs from our brains? Out with the old ideas, old products, old stuff done last year? Make room for the new concepts, new patterns/designs and give ourselves room for new things that tickle our creative muse?
Whatever it is that is driving everyone to do giveaways right now, I am happy to enter and take my chances at winning some beautiful works of needleart. Any winnings will be new additions to my stash or treasure chest! If you feel lucky and if you admire tatting as much as I do then you will want to check out the Super Awesome Anniversary & Sale that Mel is having on her blog Needle Tatting and Other Nonsense. She makes tatted jewelry, masks, etc. Very different from the edgings and doilies I make. I loved her Victorian Wedding Set and the Quadra in Burgundy Bracelet. She also has a very special sale price offer on her Etsy items which will be good only for those who visit her blog first. She is giving away between 1 and 4 prizes, dependent on how many hits she has on the drawing. You have until 3/17 to enter. The winner will be announced on 3/20 - my oldest daughter's birthday. This seems like it might be kismet for me! Here is a picture of her first prize- Full Bloom:
