1000 Sales on Etsy Contest

Last month, I reached a milestone; I made my 1000th sale from my Etsy shop. And it only took me three years to do it!
To celebrate, I am having a contest. I will be giving away a box full of goodies to one winner.
There are eight different printed patterns. I don't have very many of my patterns in printed form, since I sell most of my patterns as pdf's. These are some from my wholesale orders.
And since you can never have too many hooks, I am also giving away a set of yarn hooks, a set of steel thread hooks, and a gauge measuring thingy.
The yarn hooks also come with  a nifty little pair of folding scissors.

And this package contains the one hook I cannot live without; a size 7 steel Boye hook. I plan to be buried with one. Seriously.
And honestly, I am not really sure how you use this contraption, but it looks impressive. I am sure more knowledgeable crocheters know what to do with it.
And of course, there is thread! I will give the winner 10 balls of thread in some of my favorite colors. Some are new, and some are from my stash.
Uh oh!

 Do you know how hard it is to take a picture of a tower of thread on a windy day?


Here they are, all boxed up and ready to go.

In addition, I will give the winner their choice of any 5 pdf patterns from my Etsy BellaCrochet shop:

http://www.etsy.com/shop/bellacrochet

I will select the winner at random and mail out the box next Friday, February 10th.
To enter, just leave me a comment, and be sure I have a way of  contacting you, so I can get your mailing address if you win.

Thanks to everyone for helping me make 1000 sales, and good luck!

This contest is now closed; thanks to everyone who entered!
