Giveaway Times Five :)


When I started blogging, I would have never imagined that I would have the opportunity 
to write this particular post... Yet, here I am writing it and happy to announce 
Humming Needles' 500 Followers Giveaway!



As much as I would like to thank each and every one of you for being here, for all your kind attention, comments and support, it is beyond my power to do that. 
But what I can do, 
is to present five of you, dear readers, with five of my creations:

Gift no.1: "Birthday Bouquet" Pendant


Gift no.2: A custom made pendant, created especially for the winner


Gift no.3: "Fairies" eyeglass case


Gift no.4: A one on one Dimensional Daisies Online Class


and Gift no.5: a SURPRISE :)


If you would like to take part in the giveaway and win
any of the presents listed above, just leave one comment on this post 
until February 28, midnight (CET), 
saying 
which one of the five items listed above you would like to win
and
what would you like the "Surprize" gift to be


As this is a celebration of followers, only followers of this blog (present followers and new ones) can take part in the giveaway. 

Thank you again and good luck Everyone :)

Hugs,

Parabéns pelo belo trabalho que voce vem fazendo. Mostrando ao mundo um bordado perfeito, feito com carinho e alma. Voce merece todos os elogios... e muitos abraços.
Eu gostaria de ganhar o presente nº 3 uma bolsa para os meus óculos.
Um carinhoso abraço.

A lovely give away...please enter me in the draw...I would love the eyeglass case.

Rozy said...

NAgyon tetszenek az alkotásaid. Játszanék én is. Ha lehet (és ha szerencsém lesz) a 2. ajándékot kérném. Láttam ugyanis Nálad egy medált tulipánokkal, fantasztikus volt. Imádom a tulipánokat és szalaghímzéssel még nem láttam előtte csak más virágokat.
Köszönöm, hogy játszhatok.

Martina said...

Oh I would love to win(again,lol)any of your prizes. They are so beautiful!! And the surprize gift? Perhaps a stitched little pouch? Or a little heart? I think whatever it would be it will be just lovely.
Hugs Martina

Its very beautiful works!
Поздравляю с 500 читателями! Очень понравился подарок №3, хотелось бы выиграть, буду надеяться :)

N. Adri said...

Gratulálok! Nagyon nagylelkű vagy velünk! :-)
Szeretem a munkáid, de a szívemhez legközelebb mindig is az ékszereid állnak. Így, ha én lennék a szerencsés nyertes, akkor vagy az 1-es, vagy a 2-es nyereményt választanám, illetve a meglepetés is lehetne egy szép medál. :-)
Köszönöm és további szépséges alkotásokat kívánok!

Connie Eyberg Originals said...

Can I say "all of the above"? Tough choice. Everything you do is so beautiful. I guess if I must, the eyeglass case would be 1st choice, followed by the dimensional daisy online class and finally, almost neck-in-neck with the other two, one of your pendants. I would like the surprise to be that I won! Congratulations on having 500 followers. That is awesome!

Francesca said...

i tuoi lavori sono magnifici, mi sono iscritta da qualche giorno al tuo blog, e sarei superfelice di poter vincere uno dei tuoi stupendi premi, grazie dell'opportunita'

Wendy said...

wow, what am amazing giveaway, I'd love to win one of your embroidered pendants (any of them, they're ALL gorgeous), so that's what I'd like the surprise to be too! I would also be interested in the one to one class, but I fear it would be too advanced for me!

Gaby Erika said...


Egy ajándék mindig öröm, de ha még ráadásul ilyen szépséges mint a te munkáid igazi győztesnek érezheti magát az ember fia! Ha nyernék bármelyik nyereménynek örülnék... de itt közelről könnyebben meg tudom csodálni őket (ha majd úgy adódik), így hát azoknak szurkolok akiknek nincs lehetőségük élőben megcsodálni szép munkádat.

Nena said...

Olá!
Todos os brindes maravilhosos.Gostaria de concorrer ao número 2.
