a little 'late' giveaway

Usually a day late and a dollar short, I am!
But here is my little giveaway, better late than never I hope...
If you are interested in winning a calendar, please leave a comment.
And, if you would like to also mention what is on your 2010 creative-projects-to-do list, I would love to know.


The calendar {monthly} is small--about 5 inches square and comes with a little magnetic clip to hang it.

I promise to throw in something else--maybe a zippered pouch...

I will pick one winner Thursday morning, 1/7/10.

Best wishes!

  2. We have a family calendar but this small one would be perfect for my personal one. Thanks for a chance to enter your fun give-away.

    As for 2010. Hmmm, I am still looking for that "new idea" to sew or make.

  4. Your calendar looks lovely from the photos! Mmm... I plan to make some baby bibs, burp cloths, some pin cushions, and finish an apron. Oh, and teach my girls to knit. Wish you were closer and could teach them for me! I'm afraid I'm not very good at it yet!

  5. Lovely pics! I am busy knitting thick socks at the moment - in an attempt to keep my feet warm in the winter chills. And having done my first shawl I would like to do more. And more of your lovely dischcloths, too - they have been a great success so far!

  13. What a lovely calendar! I have resolved to learn to knit something that is not square or rectangular - maybe something using double pointed needles, or (gasp!) cabled! I'd also like to sew more!

    ReplyDelete
  14. What a lovely calendar! This next year I am hoping to finish my first pair of knitted socks, make a felted chicken and baby chicks for my daughter's birthday, knit a rag rug, finish a bunch of half-sewn projects, make potholders out of old felted sweaters, and finally I have fantasies about learning to cable and a really big fantasy about a sweater or cardigan for me. Whew! Better get started!!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I love reading your blog and hearing about your country life. I am transplanted from a rural area and your observations always remind me of home. Would love to have a copy of the calendar as all your items are fantastic. I have made a bundle of your dishcloths and your pattern is my favorite. This year I am dedicated to starting all those homemade Christmas gifts before Thanksgiving...I didn't get everything done this year!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I would love to win a calendar! Is it open worldwide? I have heaps of creative things planned for 2010. One of which is to learn to crochet more than just a granny square. But my first project for the year is an inspiration board for my craft room, off to do that now!

    Selina.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Such pretty photos, Deb! Please enter me in the giveaway. :)

    Creative projects I have planned are lots of cross-stitching and embroidery projects, drawing, crochet perhaps, and whatever strikes my fancy...

    ReplyDelete
  24. Oh thanks for making me write down my creative goal. I will make one train car model for my railroad. It has been almost a year since I finished my last one at this rate it will take me forever to get the ten cars I want built.

  25. Beautiful calendar, I hope to get motivated to make the rag rug I have been putting off.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  35. I would love to win a calendar but not as much as I love your blog! I have many projects on the burners because grandchild #10 will be born in a couple of months. I look to your blog for inspiration :-)

    ReplyDelete
  36. Thank you for offering the cute calendar for your giveaway. I am hoping to take a knitting class to "relearn" knitting this year :-) And maybe get past knit and purl!

  37. Cute calendar. I have joined kleio (over at kleiosbelly) for a goal of knocking out 1 UFO (unfinished object) a month. I'm already working toward January, just hoping I can sustain my enthusiasm. Hubby is out of work so it gives me time to focus on my stash of yarn and fabric, and paper instead of buying something new.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Deb, I think your calendar would be a perfect gift on its own.

    One major creative project I have on my calendar will happen this spring. I want to make a mosaic table to put my plants on.

    God bless.

    ReplyDelete
  39. This is a beautiful calendar and I would love to win it. I'm also a little late...I have no calendar for my office yet. :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. Very nice calendar pictures...count me in for whatever you send! I have many quilting projects for this year...finishing 3 quilt tops, starting 3 baby quilts, and beginning a siggy swap and a BOM!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I would love the calendar! My daughter usually makes me one at school but this year she didn't. I plan to finish the sweater I started last year. Love your blog, it is such an inspiration!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Cute! I would love to win!

    On today's post I have listed the quilts I "need" to make...but probably not all this year!

    I also want to learn to knit for real, play the boran, and make candles. Such are my crafty desires!

    Happy New Year!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Oh heavens I need one. I carry one but I really need one by the phone. You might even inspire me to get crafty. :)

    ReplyDelete

  45. How cute is that calendar?! Very sweet of you to offer this as a giveaway.

  52. A little calendar is just what I need by my computer! and yours is so lovely.~ My #1 goal with projects this year is not to procrastinate! I create my own stress, by waiting till the last minute. Hope to make about 3 levi quilts for my kids for Christmas.~ In between, aprons and bonnets will be sewn.

  54. Hi! I'm new to your blog and to the domestic side of life. I grew up in a very crafty home but being recently married am finding out what it means to make a space your own. I would love to win your calendar to help me document our first year of marriage! This year I've started embroidering tea towels with some of my Grandma's old patterns and hope to have quite a few done by the end of the year!

  61. Deb,
    I am so excited to enter your give away. I stumbled across your site this year and have been a faithful reader since.Your beautiful clothespin bags inspired me to get into crafting again.
    *On Thursday I will be taking a knitting class. I'm so excited!
    *I'm planning on doing more crochet gifts this year for friends and family.
    * I will start a quilted table runner with instruction from my Sister.
    * Make some more napkins
    and whatever else pops into my head.:)
    Thanks for introducing me to Rhonda's site, too. It's been a real lifesaver!!

    ReplyDelete
  62. I've just recently discovered your blog and I'm loving it. My plans for this year include finishing the current sweater, knitting a shawl, sewing cup cozies, and decorating my house on a shoestring!

    ReplyDelete
  63. I have not even bought one 2010 calendar! I need two and haven't even take the time to look. I always buy ones that envolve my dogs or porches, or flowers. Never can find craft or fiber related calendars.

    This year I am hoping to do some hand dying, knitting with wire and trying my hand at Fair Isle. Every year should be a learning year!

    ReplyDelete
  64. I'd love to be included! I'm always so inspired by your posts and photos!
    Although I already knit a good bit, one of my goals for this year is to learn how to knit socks! I also want to have a better go at an herb garden. I've had one in the past, but this year I want to do another one...but make it pretty as well as functional.
    Thanks for the give-away!
    Blessings,
    Amy O/picketfencemom

  68. So hoping to win your lovely inspirational calendar....

    A year ago I turned my grown son's old room into an awesome craft room. I have only dabbled in it but intend to make some amazing things this year. If I can design and sew a beautiful dress for my son's wedding in June, I will feel content for the year!

    ReplyDelete
  69. Great calendar, I'm crossing my fingers!

    Right now I'm working on a quilt, three sweaters and a hat. I know it sounds like a lot!!!

  71. Love visiting your blog. I have made literally probably a hundred of those washcloths when you shared the pattern in Somerset Life. I even made my first pair of socks this year! This calendar is lovely, and would love to own a little piece of your world. Please count me in. Thanks, Nancy ncvanhoose@comcast.net

  74. oh how lovely! perfectly cheery for my desk at work...

    for 2010, i am DETERMINED to learn how to use my sewing machine proficiently, and how to follow a pattern. we're getting ready to start our family, and i refuse to not know how to make my children's clothes and halloween costumes!

    ReplyDelete
  75. I take a "daily dip" in to your inspiring blog. Although I live "over the pond" I feel like you're an "e-friend" and love to browse and enter your world. The calender would be a reminder of my homespun living "dip" and fill me with inspiration for 2010.

    ReplyDelete
  76. I have SO many creative endevours. This year the big project for me is learning to be creative frugally. This is so difficult when an obsession for yarn and fabric exists. The first step I believe will be to use what I have and finish UFO's.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Thursday? That's my birthday! It would be fun to receive this then. :-) I plan to crochet more this year.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Beautiful photos. I would love to win. I'm committed to making some punchneedle projects as well as a wool candle mat and a penny rug.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Happy New Year!
    The picture of the sunflower on the cover of your calander looks like it has a little face which I think is made by the petals bent over. It made me smile and think of summer on a very cold and snowy day here in the UK!

    ReplyDelete
  80. The calender looks lovely. Have a very happy new year! I am going to learn to knit socks from the toe up. :)

    ReplyDelete
  81. I have been so excited to discover your blog(been reading about a week)! I want to make some skirts for this summer for my daughter and I. I also want to make some of your pot holders,they are just lovely!

  85. Commenting! Looks lovely, thanks for the opportunity!
    I'm hoping to finish a pullover (knitting), start a cardigan, start another pullover, continue with socks, and pull out the sewing machine this year. Nothin' but ideas overflowing, waiting to be created...

    ReplyDelete
  86. I would love to be the lucky one to win your calendar!

    I'm only a beginning crafter but I'm planning to make a crocheted throw for my Mam, and a squirrel throw with embroidery done by all four of us for my mother-in-law who is turning 70 this year. We don't have squirrels here in New Zealand, but my MIL has travelled to family in Canada and fell in love with them there :o)

    ReplyDelete
  87. I just recently found your blog and I wanted to tell you how beautiful all of your photos are. I'm not exactly a crafty person and with 3 children, there wouldn't be a whole lot of time to be 'crafty' in :) But it is truly a pleasure to read what you've been making and again, the photos, simply gorgeous. Have a wonderful new year.

    ReplyDelete
  88. I too would love to win your calender!

    My big project this year is to knit a handbag and felt it, I have a book with patterns in and found some wonderful and cheap wool in Hamburg, Germany and filled my little case with it. Just need to finish two other projects first, that is the cardigan I have nearly finished and my sisters wedding scrapbook before her 1st anniversary!!

  96. Hi Deb ~

    I have many projects planned for 2010, but the two main things are to, 1. finish my daughter's sweater that I started 3 years ago and as a result was too small so I had to take it all out and start anew, and 2.) reorganize my sewing area to make it more efficient.

    THanks for having this giveaway!

  111. The calendar looks beautiful. My project list includes, knitted shawl for my daughter, new hot pads, a placemat for my daughter to take in her lunchbox, new napkins, several drawstrings bags to condense some clutter, lavender eye pillows, apron for daughter, slipcovers for couch, and finish or get rid of the unfinished projects stash. That's a start to 2010 anyway.
    Happy New Year.
