My First Ever Giveaway!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

First I have to apologise. This giveaway was meant to be celebrating hitting 50 lovely followers, it is a little belated but it is a means of saying thank you, to you all, for your lovely comments and support which mean such alot to me. I never realised how much I was going to enjoy running a blog and it's now definitely part of my daily routine.

I have tried to select things which say a little bit about redneedle and a little bit about me. I hope you like them. 

So, first of all a small Cath Kidston fabric tote bag........

.......... with co-ordinating ipod/iphone pouch, August edition (Issue 4) of Mollie Makes, still in it's cellophane wrapper (the nice people at Future Publishing made a bit of a cock up on the subs front this month).........

...............a needle case...........

 ............ and a set of thank you notelets.

All crafted by myself. (Well OK, I confess I didn't have much to do with the editing of 'Mollie Makes' this month!)

 If you would like to particpate all I ask is:
1. You need to be a follower of this blog, join now if you like
2. Leave a comment below with an email link so I can contact you if I need to.
3. Visit my new Facebook page and 'like' me, you'll find the button in my sidebar, but please don't feel too obliged to do this

THE DEADLINE DATE FOR YOUR ENTRIES IS SEPTEMBER 3 (as I know some of you will be taking holidays at this time of year)       .

I hope I've done everything I'm supposed to do, I felt surprisingly nervous and excited putting all of this together, just wanting to get it right. So thank you again lovely people for visiting my blog and for sharing yours with me.

  31. Hey! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website?
    I'm getting fed up of Wordpress because I've had problems with hackers and I'm looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
