So, there you have the prizes. Now, here are the rules. Since I am a "keep it simple, stupid," kind of person, let's keep it simple, shall we?
1: Okay, here is what you do; leave me a comment telling me which of the doilies in the book you like best, and your email address (so I can notify you if you win.) UPDATE: Ravelry or Etsy id's are okay, too. Just so I have a way to contact you.
2: Follow my blog, and you get another entry (leave another comment saying "I follow your blog" so I don't have to look to see.)
3: Heart my etsy shop at bellacrochet.etsy.com and get another entry (leave another comment saying "I heart your Etsy shop.")
4: The contest will end at midnight, on Thursday, April 30, and I will announce the winner on May Day (May 1st). I will ship the prizes out by priority mail no later than Monday, May 4th. (UPDATE NOTE: the winner will be chosen at random by a drawing; I will print out all the comments, cut them apart and put them all in a hat or a crochet basket or something, then draw. Not high tech, but it should work!)
5: Unfortunately, this is going to be a pretty big box, so this contest is only open to residents of the U. S. As an alternative, if you live outside the U. S. and would like to enter, I can offer you your choice of any 6 patterns from my Etsy shop, to be sent to you as pdf downloads in email attachments as a prize. Not as cool as a basket full of thread, I know, but for now that is the best I can do.
That's it! Please bear in mind that I am new at this, so if I have forgotten anything I will fix it as soon I can. I have always enjoyed giving presents more than receiving them (well, I really like to receive them, too) so this is going to be great fun for me. I plan to have other giveaways, at least once a month, so please check back often. Tell your friends, and good luck!!!

A close up (macro shot!!!) of the leaves on a little Rosebud baby hat I am working on. The whole hat.

Except for one very important thing: a camera to take pictures of it all. I left my camera at my daughter Amanda's house (where I had a wonderful weekend cooking, eating and playing with my babies, by the way) which is about 65 miles away. It is kind of hard to do a tutorial without pictures, and I don't know if anyone would want to enter a contest when they can't see what the prizes are. Hey, maybe I could have a "Mystery Crochet" contest! You could enter and just hope for the best, and hope I don't decide to send you all of my old leftover odd and end balls of thread and a bent crochet hook or something. No, nevermind, I want to show off the prizes; they really are pretty cool (if you like thread crochet, anyway). So the contest is postponed until I get my camera back, but I will try to find some extra goodies to add to the prizes to make the wait worthwhile.
Anyway, it is a beautiful day; I am going to spend the afternoon planting tomatoes and some gorgeous pink geraniums I found at Walmart this morning (I have a thing for pink geraniums). They are sooo pretty, I wish I could post a picture of them so you could see just how pretty they are. If I only had a camera.
