Winners and wondering .


Firstly the winners from my 200 post giveaway .
 1st prize of 3 different patterns from my shop is Jenny from Ohjoh .
 2nd prize of 2 different patterns is Little Eve and
3rd prize of one pattern is Jossie from Cybeles Patch .
If you ladies would please email me with your pattern choices I will send them off to you .
Thanks everyone for visiting and entering the giveaway and if you are dissapointed you didn't win ask your favourite craft shop to stock my patterns , hint , hint !

Now for the wondering ..... would you like to play a game ?
What is your most treasured thing ?
 Besides your husband , children and sewing machine what is most important to you ?
Maybe it is a dried flower from your wedding bouquet or your childs first drawing .
It could be your Nanas doilies or your Mums handed down dinner set ,
your first quilt or a favourite book .
No I don't want to rob your houses I'm just curious what others find priceless .

If you are interested I will put a linky thingy here on
 Tuesday the 1st July and we can call it
 Treasure Tuesday or something daggy like that .
I'd be so happy if someone wants to play .
It will only be for that week because really how many priceless things do we have !
Leave a comment on this post if you think it may be worthwhile , if I don't hear from you I'll figure it's a really stupid idea and I'll just get back in my box .


Are you waiting to find out about the photo of the stapler ? Why is it there?
Just 'cause it's pink !

My most priceless thing is a wooden frame my grandpa made for my paint by numbers I did when I was about 12 years old.

He's been gone 30 years now and in all my houses I have lived in....its always place so its the first thing I see when I walk into the house:)

My kids were born on his wedding anniversary and his wife's (my beautiful Nanna's) birthday.

Thought I'd throw that on:D

SoozeM said...

Sounds like a great idea! My problem is I tend to be overly sentimental, and have so many things that are precious to me (most of which would be junk to anyone else!) - how do I choose just one?

Kerryanne English said...

Great idea Clare. I'm sure there will be plenty of people willing to join in.

Congratulation to the winners!

Sounds like a good idea...only one though?

Brianna said...

Love to play along, bring on the 1st!

Pat said...

Congrats to the winners. When I think of my most treasured possession, I have to think of what I would miss the most should a natural disaster come and destroy our home...and the thing I would miss most is our photos (some in albums and some saved on the computer). I'd really be devastated if I lost them.....they are truly treasured by me.

Hi Clare,

Thanks for visiting my blog... and leaving a comment. I've had fun browsing through some of your recent posts. Congratulations on reaching 200 posts. I think I'm headed towards 500... guess I'll have to do a giveaway.

Vicki said...

Congrats to the winners and count me in Clare....I actually have lots of things that are dear to me so picking just one would be hard.
Hugs Vicki

Cyndi said...

I think it sounds like a really fun game and I'd like to play along, too. So you can count me in.

Congratulations to the winners...you're getting some awesome patterns!

XOXO,

Cyndi

What a fun idea! I think my most treasured thing (right now) would be two pictures on my dresser - one of my daughter at about 18 months of age, another of my granddaughter at about the same age. They look almost identical - my granddaughter couldn't even tell them apart!

Linda said...

Lovely idea, count me in.

Quilting in My Pyjamas said...

Yep -I'm in . Great idea Clare!

Mrs Yappy Dog said...

What a lovely idea, I would really like to see everyones treasures.

Scented Sweetpeas said...

Great idea, I am in but will need reminding :-) Maybe remind us on your blog a couple of days before? thanks

Natasha Burns said...

cool idea, i'm trying to narrow down my faves to one thing... lol!

Allie said...

Oh man, you have a pink stapler!!! How cute is that! I'm in, I'd love to play.

Barb said...

Now that is funny...just because it is pink....

hummmmm my most treasured item? Hummmmmmm that is hard...I need to think on it.

Daffycat said...

I think Treasure Tuesday's are a great idea! But only once? We all should be able to post several times about treasures we love. Why not make it a short series and see who all keeps up?

Cybele's patch said...

Thank you... thank you... thank you...... see me jumping up and down? This is the first time ever I win a give away. I am so happy Clare!

LaurieStar said...

I am not sure of my most cherished possession. Hmmm... I love the painting that my Mom did that's hanging near my kitchen sink. She doesn't like it but I do! I also love all my neat white birdcages that I have everywhere. They get a lot of comments from people who stop by!

Liz said...

Congrats to the winners. i love the idea of a Treasure Tuesday. BUT....just 1 thing would be so hard.....

Jodie said...

Clare, I have a small hand mirror from my grandmother which is precious to me - yes I would love to play :)

ittybittyandpretty said...

Virginia said...

Clare, I would love to be in - could do it for a number of Tuesdays! How's the cardigan, knitted by my grandmother while I was at uni, with wooden buttons turned by my late grandfather using timber off my parent's farm? Hear from you soon

Stitchbird said...

Treasured Tuesday sounds fun. I will have a good think about what I would choose. I can't believe I missed your giveaway - too busy obviously with everything else. Thanks for your lovely kind words about my Dad. Happy 200th!

Little Eve said...

Hi Clare and thank you for the giveaway and the wonderful prize! Very happy to have won! My email is not responding at the moment? so i'll be in touch when it is re patterns and address etc.
Count me in for Treasure Tuesday. It'd be fun to see other people's precious objects.
