Five Years Blogiversary Giveaway!!

EDITED: GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED, congratulations to Leonie! You are the winner!

Five years ago (er…well the day before yesterday) I hit PUBLISH and my life changed! I’ve now been blogging for FIVE whole years!  And because of my blog I’ve had some amazing opportunities, got to know some fabulous people and worked with some amazing companies – for which I am so very grateful!



Each blogiversary is a huge milestone and my 5th birthday is no exception. What started as a complete experiment is a large part of how I evolved into a working crochet designer, but I blog because I enjoy writing, I love to share my passion for all things crochet, and I love to hopefully inspire you.


Let the beauty of what you love be what you do – Rumi

The past five years have been full of highlights and new experiences for me. Here’s just a few (of many!):


And I’m so appreciative to all the awards my little blog has received over the years!

I was looking at some stats about blogs in general and was really surprised to learn that almost over 80% of blogs do not make it past the first three months – so I’m going to take a little moment to say go me! I’m still here – as are so many of you!

Just in case I don’t say it enough I want to say a big THANK YOU to you all that read my ramblings! I really appreciate the time you each take to visit my blog and especially when you leave me comments and feedback. I’d also like to thank you to those of you that have shared my blog your friends and family too.



I’ve actually got double cause to celebrate at the moment because as well as blogging for five years my Facebook page recently hit the mahoosive milestone of 15 thousand followers! Just amazing! So I’m going to do a giveaway here on the blog, a different one on Facebook and another little one on Instagram  because I like hanging out there!  So that’s THREE different prizes up for grabs starting with this one!

So what do I have on offer as prize here on the blog for my blogiversary? Well one winner will receive the following:


Here’s how you can enter:

To enter, leave a comment at the end of this post telling me which 5 patterns you’d pick as part of the prize – to gain an extra entry maybe you might like to sign up to my newsletter.

The contest is open from RIGHT NOW until 8pm (GMT) on Wednesday 20th February 2019. The winner will be selected using a random number generator and I will need to be supplied with a full postal name and address to send out the prize. If efforts to contact the winner remain unsuccessful after a week, an alternative winner will be randomly selected.

This giveaway is open WORLDWIDE!  

Thank you my loyal friends and followers for your everlasting support and encouragement! Without you, I would serve no purpose!

Until next time; keep calm and crochet on my friends xx
