The Great Granny Square Giveaway!!! Closed


The granny squares have been sorted and are being sent to their new homes as I type. Unfortunately, we had someone back out at the last minute, so all us gals decided it would be great to give the "extras" away!!
One lucky reader will win 20 granny squares!! And all you ladies that were in the swap, please feel free to sign up...wouldn't it be great to win more grannies?? I think so!

Okay...here are the rules:
1. Leave me a comment on this post telling me what your next crocheting project is.
2. If you are a follower please let me know in the comments and that will get you an extra entry.
3. If you aren't a follower become one and that gets you an extra entry...just remember to let me know you are now following.
4. Blog about this giveaway and link it here in the comments...yep extra entry.

It is that easy!!! I will draw a winner Monday evening, May 17. Good luck!!

So I haven't been around much this week in blogland and I miss it and you!! I feel like I am running in circles this week and haven't had much creative energy. I am getting it back though. Today I am tackling this monster....

Seriously?? How does it always end up looking like this? It is more of a "catch all" for the stuff I don't have room for. I don't even remember the last time I actually created in my craft room. So sad!!! So today I am taking it on. I am going to organzie and clean...again. Tomorrow I have a dear friend visiting and she is going to help me get my vintage etsy shop up and running! I have been thinking about this for a long time and it is great to see it finally becoming a reality! I can't wait. I hope to have pictures and more information up on my blog here in the next week or so.

Tonight we are hosting a spring party but it is suppose to rain all evening. I really hope it stops so that we can grill out and enjoy the bonfire! What are your plans for the weekend?? Whatever they may be, I hope you are able to enjoy and stay dry!!
XOXO
Amber

Hi, this weekend, I am clearing my flat for refurbishment work (boring!) and I cannot crochet, but love to see others creations, and thats why I would love to win the granny squares, as my work is for charity and sadly missing this type of embellishment x I look forward to seeing your craft room, all done x I am a follower x And have popped your candy on my sidebar: http://www.charitycrafter.blogspot.com

I have candy too!

Hi Amber!
As you know I am a novice to crochet and am teaching myself...my last post was my first completed project :)

My next project will hopefully actually turn out to be what I intended it to be.

Shauna and Jeff said...

Hi! I love your blog and am now a follower!

I'm a knitter but drool over crochet... I just wish I was better at it! I am debating on my next crochet project being either an amigurumi Super Mario Star OR I might bust through my scrap yarn with a granny square blanket. I'm almost finished with my current knitting project, so I plan to start it soon!
