Giveaway Day! Hooray!

It's Giveaway Day! Yay!

It's December, and the holiday season has begun in earnest. It's that time of year when the world falls in love, and every song you hear seems to say Merry Christmas! It's also time for Giveaway Day!
Even though this is my 6th Giveaway Day already, I'm still just as excited and glad to be taking part as I was when I first took part in this week-long event of generosity, sharing, holiday spirit and wonderful crafts and crafters. I shan't ramble on longer about the delights of Giveaway Day (although I really could go on and on, and I do urge you to check out all the others taking part too!), and just introduce my giveaway prize, Noë the little rag-cat, to you.

Thinking up Christmas wishes

I am giving Noë away to one lucky commenter who leaves a comment here, between now and Friday 13th (it certainly won't be an unlucky day for someone!) of December, telling me about what your fondest wish this holiday season is. Each and every commenter will be assigned a number, with the first person to comment being number 1 and the second commenter would be number 2 and so forth, and then come the 13th, I'll draw a random number to see who's the lucky person that Noë goes home to (I'm happy to ship internationally, so it doesn't matter where you're from).

A letter to Santa

Noë the little rag-cat has a lot of things she wants for Christmas and she's making sure to write to Santa well in time to make sure he gets her letter. She has been ever so good this year, so she's sure Santa will bring her something nice. :)
Noë is made out of linen and she's been stuffed with rags and polyfill. She has little button eyes, an embroidered nose and a linen coloured plastic button for a belly button. She's wearing a pretty red and white polka-dotted skirt made out of soft knit fabric and hand knitted jolly red woolly socks. Noë is all of 32 cm short, but every single one of those centimetres is kind and joyful.

My most fondest wish this holiday season is that we'll get a white Christmas. So far we've only had a light dusting of snow fall, but I'm wishing with all I've got that more will come. It's just so very drab and dreary here without snow, and I think nothing much can make Christmas as magical as the world being a winter wonderland!

13th December, edit: The giveaway has ended, commenting has come to a close and the winner will be announced shortly. Thank you so very much for taking part everyone! :)


I hope my daughter has an amazing and happy first christmas and I hope she'll learn to crawl just in time to explore the gifts under the tree. :)

My fondest wish for the holiday season is to spend some quality time with my newlywed husband :) and I'd love to win this giveaway !

I've had a son and a daughter get married this past year. My fondest wish is that we'll all have a lovely Christmas together and everyone will feel loved.

my fondest wish for this holiday season is to be able to see friends I haven't seen in way too long. Love your cat doll, she is really cute.

I wish to have a restful Christmas, filled with the people I love and that is it a joyful and magical for my daughter's first.

My fondest wish is for everyone to stay healthy as we travel! Thank you for your generosity!

My fondest wish is that my friend in the States who just had a thrombosis incident gets well very very soon so that we finally meet next summer!AriadnefromGreece!

My fondest wish for Christmas and the new year is that our youngest (7y) won't need that third eye operation. Otherwise Noe would be a nice gift to support her.

I wish that family and friends dreams come true! Your little rag-cat is adorable! Thanks for the chance to win and have a Wonderful (white) Christmas.

My wish is to be able to let go and just enjoy the season, without getting too caught up in the hustle and bustle!

I am hoping for some quiet quality time to create with my kids.

My holiday wish is to just relax and go with the flow. I tend to get uptight about things that don't warrant it, so it's time to just chill.

My fondest wish is that our ultrasound today will go well and our baby is growing strong & healthy! After that, everything else is just icing on the cake! And oh, Noe, I'd love for you to come join us in our nursery! You'd get lots of love in this house!

My wish for this holiday is to be with my family and close friends to celebrate together - enjoying our company.. and perhaps just a bit of time to knit!

My wish is for my sister to be well enough to enjoy festivities this year and to win this adorable kitty!

My fondest wish is that my husband returns home in time for Christmas, so that we can celebrate the holidays as a family for the first time.

This is so cute! I'm hoping to have a white Christmas at my parents' house this year because I know my 3 year old would be thrilled. But, I don't want it to happen until Christmas Day so that no one in my family has trouble making it home. Is that too much to wish for????

I'm wishing for a peaceful and enjoyable family time for my daughter's first Christmas. Thanks for a lovely giveaway, the cat is gorgeous x

all friends and family have a relaxing Christmas with those they love x

i wish that my little family will be healthy and stay grounded in each other as we celebrate the season.

I wish for a new desk lamp so I can sew at night. Thanks!

My fondest wish this Christmas is to see my family. We won't because we can't afford the travel, but I'm so homesick and I want to see them so badly.

So stinking cute! My greatest wish this year is for my little girls to get along. I would love a stress free Christmas morning, just peaceful and loving! LOL...I can dream!

I hope that my kids (4 and 21 months) to feel the magic of Christmas this year. My 4 year old still can't stop talking about Halloween and doesn't seem to have caught the Christmas spirit yet...

My wish this holiday season is just to remember to slow down and enjoy the day with my family. Oh and my little girl keeps saying her baby brother needs a white stuffed kitty cat (like her favorite stuffed animal). I keep saying I am not buying more stuffed animals, so your prize would be the fulfillment of her greatest wish this year!

This is LOVELY. As always. I think my Christmas wish would be that my husband would find a job and that sometime in the future we'd be able to see our friends and family that are far away.

Beautiful doll! I'm wishing for fabric. Lots and lots of fabric!

I'm wishing for a peaceful & relaxing time at home for this Christmas season. May everyone (including animals) have a safe & enjoyable holiday.

I am wishing to be with my family. I am wishing my dad gets back to see us and my mum stays healthy and we can all watch the Dr Who Christmas special together.
Ps. I am also participating in giveaway day, I'm thinking it might get me good karma and let me win something beautiful!

I wish that I would have a chance to do something else than school and work stuff.

I love your little rag pets! thank you for the lovely giveaway! My fondest wish is that my family has safe travels while coming in state to visit! I hope you have a beautiful white Christmas!

My wish is just to see my girls happy. That's all I want every Christmas. It's not about anything but family and seeing those happy faces on christmas morning. bashfulhal(at)hotmail(dot)com

My wish is for health for my family...

We are driving home to IA for Christmas, so I am hoping for good weather and a safe trip!

I don't have many wishes this Christmas, my major wish already came true this year! My dad was in a horrific accident and we didn't think he would live...but through some miracle he did! He is still in the hospital (going on 2 months) but he is still here with us this Christmas!!

I wish I have a very nice X.mas trip to Niagara Falls with my family! :)

I wish to find a new community of wonderful people in this new place I moved to recently. I wish my family to be happy and healthy! <3

Well, Hanukkah is already over, but all of my fondest wishes came true :) Your little rag cat is adorable!

I think my favorite memories are when my mother would attempt to take Christmas card pictures with my brother and me. We'd have so much fun with them, just goofing around. My poor mother.

I hope my daughters will understand the kindness and love involved in the holiday rather than just seeing it as an opportunity for gifts.

my fondest wish is for things to improve this season for my daughters and i.

i'm not entering, but rather to thank you. i won a snow kitty in your holiday giveaway a couple years ago. he is very loved in our home by my two little girls! so you see, your gift just kept on giving. :-) merry christmas!

My fondest wish is that the people I love find a little bit of peace in the midst of all of the hustle and bustle of December and remember how many people care about them.

Your little rag-cat is quite adorable!

My fondest wish is to spend time with my lovely family, teaching my little girls to sew, and making memories.

My fondest wish is that all my loved ones are safe, happy, and healthy this year.

I am wishing for a cozy day with my little family, with lots of joy for all four of us!

My fondest wish is that I will truly enjoy and take in this beautiful Advent and Christmas season instead of rushing through it :) It's my baby girl's first and it's been absolutely magical so far! Christmas with kids is way too much fun!

My most fondest wish this holiday season is that I will be able to go home and spend Christmas with my family.

I wish I will have much time to sew and quilt this Christmas. Thanks for the giveaway. He is so sweet.
