150th post giveaway - let's celebrate!

Sorry all, I haven't much real content on here for a while, other non-blog related things seem to have intruded. I missed out on doing a 100th post giveaway too. So to make up for it all I'm doing a...

150th post giveaway!

The whole reason I started a blog was so I'd have a central place to keep track of my sewing, cooking and gardening projects and hope that maybe some other people could learn from my successes and failures. But I never imagined just how many cool people are out there with such great blogs and amazing ideas and how inspirational they are for me! So to celebrate my 150th post and to thank all of those lovely people out there with wonderful ideas and kind comments, I have a pink-themed giveaway.
  • Two handmade pot holders (with a pink packing)
  • Pink fabric: two larger pieces with floral prints, one smaller piece with white dots
  • Two Golden Hands magazines
  • How-to-knit instructions, by Patons

It doesn't matter if you're a regular or have been lurking about, if you're local or international (I'm happy to post anywhere), all you need to do is leave a comment by Saturday September 27th and mention what your favourite baked treat is - sweet or savoury. I'll select the winner over the weekend. Thank you all for popping by!

Think Pink! Nice one. I totally missed my 100th post (I actually have no idea what # I'm up too... may need to do something about that) but I'm enjoying your posts as always!

Hmm... baked goods... even though I can no longer eat it - ye olde full-fat, home made chocolate cake with an inch thick chocolate icing. With extra icing - just lick the bowl of course.

My favorite color is pink! My favorite baked treat has to be warm, gooey chocolate chip cookies (original recipe) right out of the oven. I'm drooling just thinking about them.
Congrats on 150 posts!

Thanks for your comment on my blog and how can I resist a giveaway? My favourite baked treat would have to be a sausage roll - not those huge things you buy from the bakers but the mini little bites of yum my mum makes for me and I now make for my little one.

Woohoo! Great work on 150 posts.

(I already have beautiful pot holders from you, so I don't think I'm eligible for your giveaway.)

I love reading your blog though ... I've got loads of great information from it!

PS. Favourite baked treat is my lazy food processor scones!
