Something to give

Next Saturday, on 11th June, my facebook page will be one year old. I’m having a little celebratory give-away over on the facebook page itself (link in the sidebar, if you’re not familiar with it yet) but I also wanted something special for my blog readers too. I know that not everyone is into facebook, and, indeed, I have mixed feelings about it myself. I tend to stay away from all the applications, games and general rubbish over there and just use it as a way of keeping in touch with friends old and new.

So – here’s the cloth I will be giving to someone here on the blog:

'A Bit of Peace', approx 10" x 14"

You can read more about this cloth and see more pictures of it here.

In order to be in with a chance, just leave a comment on this post before midnight (UK time) on Friday 10th June. I will draw a name at random next Saturday. Usual rules apply: this (the blog giveaway) is for regular readers only, anywhere in the world, and is not one of those come-here-everyone attempts to attract bargain-hunters or new people. It’s a chance for me to say ‘thank you’ – for your continued support, encouragement, and most of all, for your kind words. I read every comment several times, and I gain a huge amount of comfort and reassurance from knowing that someone out there cares. I can only apologise for the fact that I have just one cloth to give to someone here.

The facebook giveaway, on the other hand, is for anyone, regular reader or not – though I do hope any new people will become regular readers. To enter the facebook bonanza, you just have to ‘like’ my page and leave a comment.

Next week, I’ll be back to circles and squares. Hope your weekend is good.

    Karen this is a very sweet little cloth – the colours merge beautifully into each other and I think the background fabrics suit the what you have chosen. I love that it has all been so neatly stitched by hand and I so appreciate that. I tend to agree with Jeannie – you are so generous with your knowledge. Count me in only if you think me worthy! Happy weekend!

    Not a Facebook fan but always enjoy your blog. I’m loving your Peace series at the moment and “A Bit of Peace” is gorgeous.

  14. karen says:

    not sure if I qualify as a regular…mostly because I’m not here as regularly as I would like to be and It’s o.k. if my name doesn’t go in the hat because it’s enough for me to be able to come here and share what you do as I think we both do what we do for a shared reason…phew…that’s profound for a saturday night, well it is for me…now I need to go and have a lie down!!

    Congratulations on your first year. I know what you mean about facebook though.

  18. congratulations an your anniversary, I know how much time and work goes into the blog, alone. “A Bit of Peace” is beautiful, love how the colours progress – and the title. Something we could use a bit of.

  19. jacky says:

    Beautiful little cloth Karen….always such thoughtful, lovely stitching.

    I havent entered the realm of facebook, I find I have enough trouble finding time to have creative time and visit other blogs. Like everything though, it seems to have its purpose and people love to stay in contact via FB.

    Congratulations on your 1 year of blogging.

    I’m commenting, but please don’t put my name in the draw because I’ve only just discovered you and it wouldn’t be fair at this point to put my name in. However, I did want to say that if you ever do another one, I’ll be there with bells on! Good luck to everybody.

    I don’t feel I leave comments regularly enough to be included in your giveaway Karen (although I do always read) but I will go and join your facebook page as I have one too for the same reasons of keeping in touch and keeping my work promoted.

  24. elizabeth says:

  28. Jill says:

    many congrats on your first year – i prefer following your blog rather than fb though it is true – somehow it feels more direct, more connected – just me perhaps …. love all the circley things you are doing – i do have an affinity – circles are an intrinsic part of, well, almost everything I do it seems 🙂

  29. gt says:

    Congrats! Love your inspirational slow cloth.

  30. deb says:

    Thoroughly enjoying the ‘circles’. Have been following your blog for a long time. I think my favourite has been your Friendship quilt, so interesting to see what you did with each block. And this little give away cloth is beautiful!

  31. Lynn says:

    I always enjoy seeing what you are working on. I don’t comment often but I often find your work inspirational, which is why I keep coming back.

  32. sally jo says:

    karen, i have followed you for only a short time, but oh how i love your circles – so beautiful. i must have found you through jude, not sure really, but when i saw ‘a bit of piece’, i left it as one of my 8 links on my phone, along with jude’s study on circles. i even sent an email to my daughter in s.e. asia about you. anyway, congratulation to you and i do love how you work with color – thanks.

  33. Happy Birthday – I have so enjoyed joining your journey recently x
