Give away time (finally!)

Comments are closed, winner will be announced shortly!

Well here it is (well part of it, some of the stuff has not arrived) my little giveaway to celebrate uhm....my first three quarters of a year selling on Etsy? 

There is a cute Heather Bailey Turtle Pincushion Pattern. Some fabric and felt you could use for this little project. Lovely soft sunshiny felt, Heather Bailey paisley fabric and Joel Dewberry woodgrain fabric (as you may know this fabric is a personal favourite of mine). Then there is some yummy hand dyed colour coordinated embroidery floss included as well.. And last but not least some Dutch Stroop Waffles! :)

This giveaway ends this Saturday evening 8 o' clock (Amsterdam time). It is primarily intended as a thank you for the support of all my Flickr contacts, Blog and Twitter Followers, Facebook fans, Meet me at Mike blog readers  and of course my Etsy buyers. But anyone else with a good reason to enter is welcome too! ;)
Leave a comment and tell me what else (besides embroidery patterns) you would like to see in my shop!  We'll throw your name in the Stroopwaffle jar and draw a winner Saturday evening. Be sure to leave enough details (either a blog/flickr/other trail) so I can contact you if you are the lucky winner. :)

  1. How about finished embroidery in the hoops ready to hang on the wall?

  2. Stroopwaffles! :D I love them!

    Only joking....I'd like to see little 'kits' with fabric for projects, a bit like this giveaway, as I think you have a fantastic eye for pattern and colour.

  3. Hi hi this is fun!
    I think you would also be GREAT at stuffed animal patterns!You have the "cute" factor and you are really precise,if I had to choose anything it would be that!Not that you are not doing an AMAZING job already with your embroidery patterns!hugs and wishing you a great week!xoxo

  4. Hey I was about to say 'kits' too but it seems Alexx beat me to it! I'd definitely be keen to see your patterns in kits with fabric and embroidery floss all ready to get stitched. I think the Princess and the Pea one would be especially good for beginners to try and tackle some new things.

  5. Im another one putting her hand up for kits - such a good way to learn and it can be so daunting trying to pick fabrics!

  9. I agree with the kit idea and the already embroidered hoops ready for hanging. I for one am not that great at embroidery but love the look of it. It would be great to buy some already made to hang up in my sewing room for inspiration. :)

  10. What a great giveaway! I'm going to ditto some of the others and suggest kits, and/or finished embroideries stitched by you. I think your Etsy is lovely as it is, though!

    oh, I'd love to see more of the same---lovely embroidery patterns. You might do a series that could be made into a book or quilt or something...fully made embroideries by you would also be wonderful, but time consuming for you--perhaps custom designed with names of people or something like that too? I need to do a big order from your etsy shop but it is so hard to choose!

  14. Totally agree I love your embroidery patterns so much and love your artwork! Love the animals, can't get enough! Would love to see what you could do with the gnomes! Would love to win this awesome pkg. Great job on such a beautiful business!

    and thanks for giving all this away!!!!

  16. So excited! As soon as I found your shop I gobbled up most of your patterns...and LOVE your new little freebie! I think it would be great if you put your work on textiles and sold them in your shop. It is fun to see the finished work but I would also love to see what you do with them afterwards. e-mail: casper9158@gmail.com

  17. I'd also love to see more finished embroidery pieces in your shop or more original artwork. :)

    Thanks for having this wonderful giveaway!

  18. Oh Nicole thanks for the fun!

  19. what about some embroidery yarns/threads? perhaps on pretty cards/bobbins? little fabric bits to use in embroideries/appliques?
    thanks

    ReplyDelete
  20. Different shades of embroidery thread together to make your patterns.

    Thanks for this give-away!

  21. How about material you can embellish? (in other words, your drawings on fabric, to be made into an adorable skirt or something. . .)

    ReplyDelete
  22. oh my, I LOVE stroopwafels! My mouth is drooling just thinking about it.

    I'm really drawn to kits and I think that would be a great addition to your shop! It would be great presents to give for the holidays!

    Thanks for doing the giveaway!

  23. I always liked your postcard/notecard idea because I'm always looking for those kind of things.
    Maybe you could also investigate getting some fat quarters printed with your designs at Spoonflower.

  24. Thank you, Nicole, for letting me know about this give away. You and Mr. Squirrel are so kind. I'm in day two of the flu and am feeling pretty sorry for myself and your email has made my day SO much brighter.

    After reading all these comments I am very curious about Stroopwaffles. Never heard of them before now. The turtle pattern is ADORABLE! You have put together a wonderful collection here. I want to win it so very much!

    I would like to see more of your sweet embroidery patterns and if you are so inclined, I would love to see some stuffed animal patterns. I love making stuffed animals. I, too, appreciate your eye for color and design and would like to see some kits you put together.

    Blessings,
    Denise

  34. Lovely giveaway! Thankyou.
    Besides embroidery patterns, I think embroidery kits (with fabric, needles, floss, etc) for some of your patterns would be a great idea.

    ReplyDelete
  35. oh oh oh a whole range of Alice in Wonderland characters please would be great then I can do a whole quilt for my A in W loving daughter....

    ReplyDelete
  36. I think the finished embroidery work might be nice too. For those fans who really love your work and want to have a piece of their own.

    I was also thinking it might be cool if you had your own fabrics printed up - your own textile designs.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Many of the previous comments have echoed my thoughts. Finding a small piece of fabric to embroider on can be a challenge so I would love to see that.
    Love the giveaway...please let me know when I win it....hehe!

  38. I love all your work and so excited to be on your swap team. I would love to see more info on the fabric you use for embroidery.

  39. Kit's would be agreat idea!
    Maybe your favorite range of felt, floss, markingpens etc...

    ReplyDelete
  40. I love the idea of complete kits. It would be a fantastic gift to give to a crafty friend to introduce them to embroidery.
    Also, an e-pattern of the month club would be a fun product and gift.
    Completed FtWB embroidery is, of course, always wonderful.

    hugs,

  41. Thanks for offering this nice giveaway! At this point, I would love to see some "softies" in your store- simple, cute ones like the hedgie that Georgia has tested for you. It would be fun to add that little bit of embroidery, and one could make them any size.
    But your straight embroidery patterns are wonderful!

  48. I'd love to see patterns for little stuffed animals. I'm looking at your koala in the next post down right now and thinking how he would be so cute made out of felt. Thanks for doing the giveaway, Nicole!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I follow you along on Twitter and used to love embroidery. I have recently been inspired to do more since seeing your lovely creations. So more patterns is always good. I adore that little pin cushion project and fabrics, the perfect way to brighten this cold rainy weather we are having here in Belgium. Hugs, Catherine x
