Win stuff! Hurrah!

To celebrate Good Things* 50 awesome followers (hurrah!) and also because it's my birthday soon (double hurrah!) I'm running my first ever blog giveaway during February!

Here's what you can win: 
A copy of Jenny Hart's really great book 'Embroidered Effects' which is full of lovely stitches to use and projects to make; a cheery orange 'prize ribbon' rosette brooch (made by me); and a hand embroidered (also by me!) 'sun burst' 5" hoop art.  And one or two other little crafty surprises.  Cool, huh?

And here's how you can enter: 
First up, you'll get one entry if you are a follower of my blog (via Blogger / Google Friend Connect or Networked Blogs) and you leave a comment below.  And just in case you are the lucky winner, please make sure there is some way for me to contact you via your comment (you might link to your blog or your twitter).

If you want additional entries, you can get them by telling people about my giveaway and letting me know that you've spread the word in a comment below.  If you tweet it, include @ejorpin in your tweet so I know about it.

Other information you might want to know:
I'll be drawing a winner via random.org's third-party draw service.  The winner will be chosen entirely by chance (though of course you can increase your chances by increasing your number of entries).

Entries will close on the 28 February and (all going to plan!) I'll conduct the draw and notify the winner shortly after that.

If you have any questions at all, please do contact me.  Have fun and good luck!


  1. Oh I love the idea of freebies that you win! And I love the move into embroidery that little pendant looks beautiful!

  2. An early Happy Birthday to you - how sweet of you to give the pressy!

    I am a follower and enjoy all of the crafty inspiration that you share here,

  3. I could think of nothing nicer than happifying my old school friend. I love the stuff you're doing...and only wish we could get together to swap notes sometime. My addiction to 60s/70s craft magazines, esp. Golden Hands might be of interest to you too! You also hold the honour of the first blog I've ever followed. Keep it coming...x

  4. Happy Blogiversary! Happy Birthday in advance!
