One World, One Heart - Giveaway

Lisa from A Whimsical Bohemian takes on a gargantuan task every year - this year for the fifth year in a row. She organises the One World, One Heart campaign, which is basically a compilation of participants that want to invite people over to their blog for a little look around ... and offer them the chance to win a "door prize" if they leave a message. Emily at The Nest did it last year and she's got a cute but cheeky-faced little doll as her door prize this year, so I thought I'd join in.

Because spring is coming and pregnant women are everyone (before you ask: I'm not. No baby cookies in the Gingerbread family), I decided to make a Kitties-in-a-Row baby blanket. Like this:

So if you know someone who'll be experiencing the Mirkel of Birt sometime soon, this might be a nice little pressie for her (and him, indirectly.) But I'm going to make this one ... in a mystery colour combination. What do you think? How about ...

Girly pinks
Lollipop colours


This blanket will measure approximated 65 x 80 cm and it will be made of baby-friendly, fling-in-the-washing-machine acrylic (those of you traumatised by tales of scratchy American acrylic can rest assured that this German stuff is very nice and soft). Ours is a smoke and pet-free home and my hands are always sparkly clean. February 17th is the closing date and you will be informed within 3 days of this date if you have won.

So if you are new to this blog, do have a little poke around. I'm The Gingerbread Lady, by the way, and I'm an Irishwoman living in Germany with my German husband. I educate The Youth of Bavaria to varying levels of success. When not pounding my protegées with the vagaries of English grammar, I do all kinds of crafty stuff - mostly involving yarn - and blog on a regular basis about my nearest and dearest, who are now afraid to tell me anything for fear it will end up in cyberspace - bwoahahahhaaa! (= evil laugh)

So do leave a comment and feel free to make your favourite colour combination known :-) Just remember to be contactable through your own blog (which I will visit. Yesirree. I'll swing by to have a look atcha) so I can contact you if you win. Hurray!

P.s. Oh my goodness. I've just spent an evening reading - literally - 34 different blogs (yes, I'm coming to see you if you leave a comment - and I have so many more to see ) and my mind is boggling at the collective creativity. But how am I going to get my crocheting done???

Nice to meet you.

I dunnno why. Your blankets look wonderful and I would adore one. Please add me to your giveaway and come over and visit me. I am No. 229 on the list.

Granny said...

I'm always looking for a pattern to make baby blankets for the children's hospital. This is beautiful. Hope I can find the pattern to make several of them. I love all the color combinations so would have a rough time choosing just one.

I'm curious where those yarns are from and are they wool? I like to knit now and then so I'm always looking for really nice yarns. and can you tell me the brand name, also?

I'm quite attracted to the last set of blue yarns. I also like that yellow at the top - such pretty colors - it's hard to choose

Since you do not have your email turn on in your blogger profile, I cannot respond to your comment in an email, so here it is:

Yes, we got tons of snow in New York, it's still around, I'm hoping it will go away soon...

The informationa about the yarns, is very helpful. Thank you very much! Hope your day is sweet and happy.

I am a new, first time grandma and a lovely snuggly blankie for grandson would be great. I don't care about color combinations, I think the artist's eye is the gauge for fabulousness.
Uh, the vagaries of English? You must plan on teaching for about 300 years! I know I get frustrated with the language and it's my first language. Ok, it's also my only language! I hope you are finding blogs out there that bring you the joy that finding this one has brought to me! Tina

Birgit said...

Hi there,

Definitely lilacs. :) Gosh, I just read your post about Germans and their fascination for The Nature. When I introduced myself in my OWOH post, I actually named "nature" (note -- without THE) as interest. Hah! However, I don't have cargo pants and won't be found running up or down mountains with Nordic Walking sticks. Nope. I enjoy going for a walk though -- and usually with my trusty camera.

Greetings from Munich,

PS: I guess we are more or less neighbors, huh? Somehow, your photos seemed familiar.

Kim Collister Studio said...

Carmen said...

I know what you mean - I am slowly getting through the list but now have my own list a mile long of everything I want to try! Knitting is something that eludes me though I'd love to master it, my Mum was a true artist with the needles but she used to despair at trying to teach me. I forget everything as soon as I was taught it and halfway through a row I would suddenly blank what I was supposed to be doing! Ah well.

Thank you for the chance to win your beautiful blanket -

Hallo aus Hessen... wenn ich es richtig gelesen habe lebst du in Bayern mit deinem Mann, dann darf ich so frei sein und deutsch schreiben (was viel leichter ist)
wundervolle Handarbeiten, ich bin für sowas nicht zu gebrauchen *schäm
aber wenn du nun noch creme/terracotta/orange in der auswahl gehabt hättest wäre ich gerne in deinen Topf gehüpft...
Schade, so lass ich nur einen Gruss da und freue mich auf die nöchste Tour mit Lisa Swifka
LG hellerlittle #773
