A Giveaway!

Wow - I'm at 495 posts and now have over 300 followers - thank you one and all for sharing my passions. I'm figuring that by next wednesday I'll be at 500 posts and this calls for a giveaway!  How about a couple of books, some fabric, a notion and maybe a finished project.  Interested?  Can't tell you what the specific items will be as this is going to be a mystery box, but it's open to all my readers.  Just be sure if you use anonymous that you include an email for ya so I can reach you to let you know if you won.  I have a question for you below.  Leave a comment to answer that question and you'll be entered.  If you are a follower, tell me so, and you can guess twice.  If no one guesses the answer, I'll do a random draw of all guesses made.  If more than one guess correctly, I'll do a drawing of just them.  The only thing I'm saying is that the answer is not a "number" - LOL - that's what my husband guessed.
Okay here goes:

Here's is my latest Craftsy Block of the Month.  It is for the month of April.  Amy challenged us to come up with a design using hexagons.  I came up with an idea and decided to execute it in extended hexagons. So, your question is:  What was Angie trying to depict in her block?  This giveaway ends Wednesday, April 18 at 6 PM so I can post a winner on Applique Thursday.  Good luck!

JoyceLM said...

Could be a garden gate. Thanks for the chance to win.

JoyceLM said...

japanese character brushwork for the word 'april'? far-fetched!

I see an aerial view of a formal garden path.

What a great idea: a quilt made up of many overhead garden scenes.

Robin said...

Congrats .............. I would like you to know I am a follower. Your block for April makes me think of a garden maze

A Left-Handed Quilter said...

I'm with everyone else guessing A Garden Maze - aerial view, of course! ;))

Your garden layout - does the green represent hedges or grass????

Gill said...

I'm a happy if bemused follower!!!

Im going to guess it's an aerial view of your house and garden (I started at this for a good 10 minutes and even drew it onto paper!)

Congratulations on your many posts and followers. That's very exciting.

Rosa said...

Congrats on so many post and followers.

Your block is your garden .

Kathy said...

Wow...this is a toughy...but it kind of looks like the @ sign. Thanks for the brain teaser

Mallorie Anderson said...

I'm a subscriber to :) I'd guess either a labrynth or the start of a mother holding a child (arms and head :) visible)

judith said...

Hi Angie, I am a follower.
My guess is the # of Hawaiian Islands, because so many have said a garden maze already. LOL.
Judith

judith said...

second guess.
initials of a grand child?

Stray Stitches (Linda G) said...

I have no idea. It could be my initials but my guess would have to be something garden related.

Stray Stitches (Linda G) said...

I am a follower :) My second guess would be a high chair and table. I'm no good at these guessing games - lol!
Congrats on reaching 500 posts - definitely something to celebrate!

Connie said...

Lots of guesses for a garden maze so I'll go with that, congrats on so many posts and what a neat giveaway!

Connie said...

I'm a follower, could this be some stems for flowers????

Danielle Hudson said...

hmmmmm, a sectional couch, loveseat and chair all crammed together?

Lisa Cox said...

Hmmm, it does kinda look like a garden maze.
Oh well, thanks for the giveaway.

robin said...

To me it looks like a secluded spot in a garden - somewhere to get away from it all to think!

Mhairi said...

I am going to guess what you see out your window.
I have spent far too long searching for a clue as to what this could be but I am giving up and going to bed.
I will just wait until you post the result.
However, I have signed up for the BOM at craftsy after searching for clues and being amazing and inspired by everyone's work.
Thanks very much for showing me this great course.

Robin (RsIslandCrafts) said...

I'm a follower. That reminds me of those large hedges that some houses have.

~Kelie~ said...

I'm a new follower and want to say CONGRATS ON YOUR BLOG!!!!
Now, to me, it kind of looks like a face, of some sort

~Kelie~ said...

Oh wait, I forgot to put my 2nd guess....some sort of maze????

Ullhärvan said...

I think it's a bench and table for the garden!

Ullhärvan said...

And I'm a follower and I still think it's the bench and table for the garden!

annmarie said...

I think you're looking down from above at hedges that form a small little secret spot in the middle for reading, thnking or just relaxing. Can't wait for the reveal!

Mimi said...

I love a mystery giveaway!! Now this block is tricky... I am guessing that it is the number 67.

Mimi said...

I am a follower and can also guess what this block is... I am wondering if it is a birds eye view of a garden maze. Thanks for the chance!

Becky said...

Congrats on reaching these awesome blogging goals! Totally guessing here. Your block reminds me of a maze - hedges and the maze. Thanks for the fun!

Jen Dewey wildrice1354@gmail.com said...

Hi Angie, is it a picture of you? Ha Ha I'm a follower

Jen Dewey wildrice1354@gmail.com said...

My second guess is it could be the arrangement in your living room. I have no idea as you can see. jen

Lyn said...

I am a follower. I think it is a snail trail.

Lyn said...

I am thinking a maze

Sallie said...

A cat standing on its head.

Mimi said...

I am going to guess that it is a turtle on a lap top under a lamp. hahahahahahaha

Marcia W. said...

Congratulations on your achievements. I cannot play the Craftsy videos on dial-up(though signed up some time ago - cannot find the pdf directions that are to be there). The lesson is for English paper piecing of hexagons and making columns - perhaps using fabric contrasts for a pattern of zig zags. To me, it looks like an umbrella for April showers or all the green showing in a garden.

Michelle Olsen said...

It looks like the number '67' to me. That's my first guess :) Thanks for the chance to win!

Michelle Olsen said...

For my second, follower guess, I'm going to say a hedge maze (aerial view).

Maria Kievit said...

I would have to say LOL, or a garden maze, just like some of the other comments!

Janet said...

A head on shot of a turtle walking through a grassy tunnel?

Sallie said...

I'm a new follower. My 2nd guess is an arch in a garden.

Diann said...

A sewing machine? Actually, I don't have a clue.
