10000 Pageviews Giveaway

Hello lovelies!

Thank you very much for dropping by :) Today, and last week, and in September, and any other time you've popped round for a snoop or a giggle or to look at gratuitous pictures of Hugh Jackman. I'm very excited to announce I've just reached the milestone of 10,000 pageviews. Eep!

It's so lovely to know that my photos of dragon-fly sex and ramblings about Phil Spencer aren't floating off into the internet ether without somebody looking at them first (and probably judging me for eating too many mince pies). I truly appreciate the comments you all leave for me too- they really do make my day :)

So, I reckon this is the perfect opportunity to host my first ever giveaway, to say thank you to for reading all my waffle about, well, waffles... I wanted to give away something handmade, but as I don't really have a signature craft item to offer, I thought I'd give away a custom cross-stitch- with the design chosen by the winner, and then hand-stitched by me. The design can be up to the size of an A4 piece of paper, and can be anything you choose. 

These are some of my previous cross-stitch projects to hopefully give you some ideas :) Some of them are my own designs, and some are from existing patterns. 

To enter, all you need to do is leave a comment below saying which one of my blog posts has been your favourite so far.

For additional entries to the giveaway you can:

Follow my blog (if you aren't already!) via Google Friend Connect, Bloglovin, RSS, or email (all subscription links are in the left hand panel)
2. Tweet about the giveaway "I've just entered @teaandcaketime's custom cross-stich competition at http://hooklineandsinkher2.blogspot.co.uk You definitely shouldn't enter because I want to win!"
3. Blog about this giveaway (be sure to include a link!) 

Make sure to leave a separate comment below for each extra entry option you complete, so I can include it in the random generator to pick the winner!

This competition will close at 8pm on Saturday 22 December. Good luck!
