A Contest: Blue Birds of Happiness Doily Pattern

I would like to increase the number of visitors to my blog, so I thought I would have a contest. I will be giving one person PDF copies of my new Blue Birds of Happiness Doily, and the gift pattern that comes with it, the Rhapsody Rose Doily.



The contest will run over the weekend. I will select the winner at random Monday morning (the 20th.)
I will send the the patterns to the winner as attachments to an email, so I must have a way to get in touch with you if you are the winner. Be sure you leave some way to contact you; Ravelry or Etsy id's or a link back to your blog. If I am not able to contact the winner on Monday morning, I will select another winner.
 Since the prize will be emailed, this contest is open to everyone, anywhere in the world.
To enter, leave a comment on this post answering this question:
What kind of post would you most like to see here in the future? Tutorials? Interviews with designers? Free patterns? More contests? Just let me know.
Thanks for entering, and good luck!
Update, June 20, 2011: This contest is now closed. Please check back often, I will be having new contests in the future!

To be honest, I'm not sure what I would like to see more of. Since I am a pattern piggie, I guess more free patterns but I do enjoy reading more of your history and patterns you have made in the past. The contest are always fun too. I know, nothing I have written here will really help in what you are looking for but I just enjoy everything crochet.

Dars said...

I love anything crochet! Inspiring new ideas, history, and a freebie now and then.

Sherri said...

I would love to. Hear more about the details of making doilies and history of thread crochet. Freebies are always welcome too

Pam said...

I like what you are already doing. You have a variety going between, history, new patterns, free patterns, etc and of course it's crochet, yea!!! I don't get much time to get into blogger as I am on FB the most so anytime you add your blog link it makes it nice to pop over and see what you have here. You can find me also at NavymomsNook on Etsy. Keep up the great designing.

Ann said...

Hi Eliza, the pattern is a pdf, an electronic file that will be sent out as an attachment to an email, so yes, I can send it to Brazil or any where else in the world. It is a written pattern in English, with no graphs, but if you win I will gladly send it to you.
Thanks for entering!

I just recently found your blog and very much enjoyed all of it. I do love patterns with style and those that are unique and different. Your lady series is beyond compare! Lovely - I am excited to be able to see your new work. I do like contests for the fun of it and maybe to win too!

Gramma Rita said...

I love your work and your blog, and I'm not really sure what I'd like to see more of. I think you have a nice mix already. Thanks for the chance to win your beautiful bluebird pattern! :)

Mindy said...

It's always great to have tutorials, and what crocheter doesn't LOVE to have free patterns!
Thanks for the chance to win these great patterns!

Pam said...

I'm not going to be much help as I like your blog just as it is. It's very well balanced. Thanks for the giveaway.

Scribe said...

I've never made a doily... that was my mom, Nan, & Granny's thing... so if the planets allign and my name is pulled... I suppose I might have to make one! haha... great contest idea! you do beautiful work!

Barbara said...

I'm a fan of patterns and tutorials, but just seeing what other people create is awesome enough and a great inspiration! I also like detailed book-reviews (about crochet of course). It's always interesting to hear where others get their ideas from!
Contests are also great, it's so much easier to hit the comment-button when you're asked a specific question, and not just to say "i love your potholder/blanket/amigurumi etc..." - wait a minute, I should try that with my own blog :)

Have a nice week-end!

I would love to see interviews with designers - or really with almost anyone in the crochet community!

starnovr21@aol.com said...

I like to see how tos especially since this is mostly work with thread i think people would be less intimidated if there were a few how tos to show off how to make such small things like thread flowers or little animals

vikki said...

I like to see what everyone is making..I enjoy free patterns too, but don't always download them. I enjoy doilies, afghans, and just about anything to do with crocheting. Personally I crochet with thread, doilies etc..and enjoy seeing and reading those blogs the most.

Becky said...

I'm really a "Pattern collector"! I LOVE a free pattern. But, I'm always ready to learn somthing new, or learn a better way of working a crochet stitch. So, for me, it's a toss up between the free patterns & the tutorials!!!!! Thanks for all you do! southernbellecrafts@ymail.com

Unique2wh0 said...

Hi! I enjoy your blog :-) if I were to pick one I would pick tutorials. I really love thread crochet but not so good at the blocking part.(I am not even sure how) Framing would be something I would like to know more about too. I just love to learn new stuff. :-)

Richard Rose said...

Even though i have a lot of patterns I'm always looking for more and i quite like yours (although I haven't bought any yet).

Deborah said...

I would like to know more of your opinions about everyday things, not necessarily crochet.

Ashleigh said...

I found your blog through crochet concupiscience (sp?) and how lucky am I that you're having a contest! The doilies are lovely. I'd love to see tutorials on pretty much anything. I'm new to crochet and I'm a bit intimidated by thread & steel hooks so I'd appreciate whatever you choose to share.

Karen Hardin said...

Ann, I love your blog the way it is, a little of this, a little of that and it all revolves around crochet.

Uma Patki said...

Would love to see more free patterns and of course more contests as well !

APR said...

Thank you for all you already share.
If I had a say, though, in addition to patterns, I would appreciate tips and tricks, different ways to do common tasks like joining (ugh) , taking care of ends......

I don't think I would like to see anything else on your Blog as it is well balanced although I do enjoy seeing your work as it is beautiful. You can contact me at: tricom@lizzy.com.au

Stephanie said...

Hello! I love your blog just the way it is. There is always something intesting to read about. I think you are a terrific designer. I have many of your patterns and enjoy making the "3-D" doilies. The pineapple heart with the butterfly and the roses is one of my all time favorites. Thanks for sharing your great talent! I can be contacted at colemanms@earthlink.net or at SouthernBelleCrochet on etsy.

Danielle said...

I love everything. But I especially love free patterns and tutorials, as they inspire me to practice more.
