Easter giveaway

I've been blogging for nearly six months now, where did the time go! In celebration of that and Easter, I am having a little mini giveaway. If you leave me a comment by Tuesday morning Australian time, I'll do a draw for these three goodies I made wee Annie based on a Nicole Ellison pattern. She has bloomers with some tea dyed antique lace and the buton is an old one out of my collection.
This pincushion is made from a wool kit by Hatched and Patched.
I love the feel of this as it's filled with silica sand so has a great weight and with it being flatter than the normal pincushion, is great for those small applique pins.
And this bunny pincushion was made based on the ones seen on Thimbleannas blog.

I think the fairest way to share these goodies is to have three draws. First name gets the first pick of what they'd like etc.
Now I won't respond to comments this time otherwise I might not get any sewing done if I'm tied to the computer :0

Oh, first to comment - wow, I love all three, especially the dolly, of course - I might try to get all 3 patterns as I really don't feel lucky, Janet - never mind, I know you will make three people very happy!
Hugs and Happy Easter - Lurline♥
