To Patching Pixies
Today is my blog's 1st Birthday. Exactly one year ago, with a lot of trepidation, I set out on my bloggy path. And haven't I had some fun! There are so many lovely talented people out there, who have made my journey enjoyable. So. To celebrate this monumental event, I have decided to do a Give Away. And here it is....
A lovely fine china mug made by Maxwell Williams, featuring a gorgeous painting of some Blue Fair Wrens by Katherine Castle.
The description of the Blue Fairy Wren on the box reads:
"The stunning, iridescent blue of the breeding male and their playful personality have made the Superb fairy-wrens a favourite Australian bird.
They live in low bushy vegetation and are frequently seen in family groups in parks and gardens in south-eastern Australia, feeding on insects and seeds"
And his little harem (sorry, I couldn't get all three of them into the photo)....
Aren't they the cutest little birds? They come to our garden once in a while, but we are a little suburban for their liking as they are a bit shy. They actually live down the road in the bushland, so they are around.
As most of my readers are from overseas, I thought it would be appropriate to offer something uniquely Australian. Mind you, I am sure anyone in Australia wouldn't mind having this little quartet to grace their tea table.
What's more I am willing to post overseas.
And I am planning a little surprise.
So how do you win this? Just two simple things:
1. You will need to Follow my blog. If you are already a Follower, just let me know that.
2. Leave me a comment after you have done that and tell me what your favourite bird is. Does it come into your garden, or do you only see it at the seaside/nature reserve? Oh, and you had better tell me in which country this type of bird is found.
Of course I'd love it if you blogged about the give away too.
I will see if I can find one of those random number generators for the draw, and work out how to use it. If I can't, I will do a draw out of a hat. I will do the draw on Sunday, 19th January 2014, after 5pm Australian Daylight Saving Time (Sydney). That means sometime on Saturday for you folks in the US.
If you would like to know a bit more about the cute little wrens you could take a look here at Birds in Backyards.
If you would like to know a bit more about Katherine Castle, the artist, you will find it here. She does some beautiful work.
Good luck, and happy stitching.
