1000 Followers and a Giveaway!!!

Hello my lovely bloggy friends!

I am happy to announce that  
Apple Blossom Dreams 
now has 1000 Followers!


With a happy heart and joyful soul I want to take this opportunity to 
thank all of you for your interest in this little slice of my world.

In celebration of this gratuitous event I would like to give away 10 patterns from my Etsy shop,
as this shop would have never existed without all of you!

The first 10 followers to leave a comment,
stating which pattern you like best and why, 
will receive the .pdf pattern for free.
We have ten winners now, 
please see comment section for the lucky peeps!
Congratulations winners!!! 
I hope you have many happy crochet moments!

 Remember if you are a non-reply commenter, please do leave a comment but additionally please email me your email address to astri.bowlin@gmail.com so the pattern can be delivered.

You can choose from any pattern in my shop; however, here are some of the most popular:

Five steps to the Granny Rose Pattern    La Vie En Rose Afghan with Border

Mitered Dishcloth                          Meadow Larksfoot Infinity Scarf
Puffy NOLA Sunset Afghan                            Towel Topper

P.S. I tried to contact follower #1000, without success.
(Kathleen, if you read this, please email me and I have something special for you!)

Oh and a funny thing, there are 1001 followers this morning, but #1001, is me, 
and I followed a long time ago, haha.
It's like I am my own ghost. 
Very strange.

Thank you all once again for following!

Good luck and happy crocheting!

  2. La Vie en Rose...My Mom will be 85 in April, and she absolutely loves roses, but sadly is allergic to the real ones. I could make this for her and rock her world!

  6. Congratulations on 1000 followers! My favorite pattern would have to be the Meadow Larksfoot infinity scarf, because I love the stitch pattern, but they're all so beautiful it's hard to decide. :) Thanks so much for holding this giveaway!
