And to those non followers out there, if you've kept reading to here, and haven't clicked away in annoyance and absolutely positively must enter the draw to win - well - leave me a comment convincing me why I should accept your entry - and I'll think about it :)

Hello Stacey - I am the follower with the picture of the Bramley apples on the tree, as befits my name. I think it was the name of your blog which originally attracted me, so the thought of polka dot ribbon of my own is very enticing, as well as the other lovely things you are giving away! And since my son had a wonderful 3 month working holiday in NZ where everyone was really kind and welcoming, I have had a soft spot for all things NZ, too.

I am glad that you enjoy my blog, too, and thank you for your kind comment. xx

Congratulations on your 50th! I don't do the following thing (I don't follow anyone, as a rule) but you are in my Google Reader, and that's my home page!

Congratulations - well done for getting yourself moved and getting to 50 posts too! I am indeed a follower, and I enjoy your comments on my blog too - thanks. I would LOVE to win your goodies - you know how much we admire your creations!

Does having you on my blog reading list count? You are also in my sidebar under " Blogs I love to visit ". Somehow I always fail miserably when I try and add myself as a follower on somebody's blog. Can't figure out why.

I hope you are celebrating the 50th in style! May there be many more of your lovely posts.

Congratulations on the big 50! I am still in the 20's but have vowed to post every day for a month so that I get into the habit of it, you have a heap of followers though which is fantastic! That is the hardest part I think!

Fantastic giveaway goodies xx

Melissa said...

Hi! I'm one of those lurkers that isn't following you officially...so to convince you that you need to accept my entry, well...I discovered your blog a few days after your Polka Dot swap. I was really bummed about missing the cutoff date. I had never participated in a swap before and thought yours would have been perfect since I'm obsessed with polka dot fabric - especially if it contains pink! After reading every single post on your blog (and realizing I needed to get to bed...it was 4am!) I became a fan of your work and wishing to have all your lovely items - from needlebooks to that amazing tea set! I was checking by every day for a new post, then discovered I could follow anonymously. So I did. Cause I like to lurk for some weird reason.

But even if I don't win, congrats on the 50 posts and the fabulous giveaway!

VintageVicki said...

Congratulations on 50 posts and what a lovely idea to do a giveaway.

I am a follower but not always the most organised at leaving comments *blush*

Looking forward to the next 50 posts.

I do not have my own blog, but I have been a devoted lurker since July. I was first taken in by the polka dots and then so surprised to see my daughter's doppleganger....your birthday girl. My daughter is now 26, but still looks much the same as she did as a toddler with her dark curls etc. I will have to send a pix of my daughter when she was a little girl to see if you think they look alike. Anyway, I was injured in October 2008 and haven't been able to do much in the way of stitching etc, until just recently when I have begun some machine sewing. Previous to the injury I was a full time crafter (sewing, crocheting, painting, knitting, embroidering, etc)...so basically I was living vicariously through bloggers like yourself. I love your taste and would love to win your 50th post prize. Kristy S. in Ohio

Hi Stacey, I'm sure glad I follow your lovely blog, I dont often comment though, which I probably should do more of. I seem to race through all the blogs and read them all and move on .... I'll have to devote more time to commenting in the future!

Luv Sophie xxx

Louise said...

Ooh yes please! I am a follower through bloglines :)

Cherry Blossoms said...

Happy 50th post! I totally have been a blog stalker of yours and I must apologize...I am ashamed that this is the first time I posted...but alas I did. So I just wanted to say...hello!

Andi said...

I'm not a follower because I don't follow ANY blogs. What I do is keep a blogroll that updates itself when the blogger writes a new post so that I can visit all those lovely blogs.
So I am SORT OF a follower. But I do regularly stop by and even comment once in a while.
Did that convince you?
Good because that is a lovely giveaway!!!
Happy 50th.
Andi :-)

Tanya said...

I am like Andi, I get your new posts emailed to me through that rss linky thingo. I have only just started blogging myself so still working out the follower thing- I reckon I am more inclinded to read posts that are emailed to me- but I have just signed up as a follower so will see which I prefer.

the cookie cutter said...

Ooh, yes! I am a follower, please count me in! Look forward to the next 50 posts!

Hello, I just found your blog and have enjoyed going through your blog. I found you in a round about way. I took a detour from going on Aileen's Wicked Tats

http://wickedtats.blogspot.com/2009/09/hallowversary-mystery-giveaway.html

and reading one of her commenters comments and clicking on that page "GerryArt

http://gerryart.blogspot.com/.

Then clicked on a link on her page which led me to Patch Andi

http://patchandi.blogspot.com/2009/10/happy-blogiversary-to-me-and-something.html

and was reading some of her commenters comments and liked the name of your blog "Polka Dot Daze" so I clicked on your blog and ta da I arrived here.

I just missed out on your giveaway, which was so awesome, but that wasn't why I commented. I just wanted to say your felt projects are fantastic. The felt needlebook is so cute with the colorful flowers on the front. I'd love to see the inside, is there another piece of felt inside to put the needles in? Do you decorate the inside or is it just the felt block?

I just saw a needlebook here, which I am going to make this weekend, "I Hope" and decorate it with tatting. You can see the pattern I will use here: http://www.blisstree.com/hankeringforyarn/needle-books-for-christmas-presents/

Ok, I think I took up enough space here.

Have a great weekend!!


It's amazing how one blog can lead to another and another. I sometimes get lost in following links. But glad I found myself here!!

Tanya said...

HI Stacey, I got my parcel yesterday- hooray, it is lovely, I am so excited to have a needle case, have never had one before and I love the ribbon and vintage storybook type fabric, a big big hug to you!
