Are you ready for a GIVEAWAY?


Are you ready for a giveaway? Or one... or two... or perhaps NINE?! he he he... well, there are nine giveaways on offer - one each from the lovely Gum Tree Designers. But I am here this morning to tell you about the giveaway I have on offer! :-)



Because Among the Gum Trees has brought together nine established and emerging Australian designers, I thought it was only fitting that I should offer you some patterns and books from some of my favourite Aussies :-)

First up is a gorgeous pattern by the ever-popular Bronwyn Hayes of Red Brolly Designs.


Second up, is this fabulous book by Tracey North of I Luv Country. There are some exquisite stitchery designs in this 20-page book with full directions on how to colour them :-)



And last - but not least - a pattern for a Sampler needle case by Lynette Anderson-O'Rourke. I have included the house button for this project. It's SO cute!


To enter my giveaway this is what you need to do:

  1. Put the Among the Gum Trees blog button on your SIDEBAR and LINK it back to the Among the Gum Trees blog = 1 entry

  2. Become a follower of Among the Gum Trees = 1 entry

  3. Become a follower of MY blog (or if you already are) = 1 entry

Please leave a comment for each entry telling me what you have done. :-) You only have to add the blog button (to your blog) once, and you get 1 entry into all of our giveaways - so long as you TELL US in your comment. If you do not have a blog, you can still have one entry into the giveaway if you leave a comment which also contains your email address :-)


There are nine Gum Tree Designers launching giveaways today and we will be checking your blogs to see you have added our button to your sidebar before we confirm your entry into our giveaways. Fair is fair :-)


Here is our blog button:



Deadine for entries is 10.00am Wednesday 30th September AEST


GOOD LUCK and hugs from Vikki! x
