What a celebratory week for me! First, my birthday. Now, a couple days later my first blog anniversary. And this is my 100th post.
It’s been a very long year with lot’s of ups & downs that have made me incredibly grateful to be part of the online sewing & knitting communities. You all have been so supportive & such an inspiration. Thank you. I really appreciate everyone who reads this blog & every comment & like I receive.
I started this blog because I was part of the 1912 project– free patterns in exchange for blogging about them. Then I challenged myself to making one thing every single week. While it was hard it was also amazingly fun & rewarding. But then I had to move. Moving put a kink in my productivity & since no one played along with me for months after the first week I stopped Make It Mondays. After that, Frosting Fortnight came along & I put out (with the help of some guest bloggers) almost a post a day for two weeks. Shortly thereafter I met up with some truly wonderful bloggers. And now I’ve started a podcast. My listeners are few- I have only put out two episodes- but I have high hopes for this little project. To top it all off I was nominated by three different people for blog awards. And I have some super huge news. I hope to tell you all about it later this month. I’m really excited!
I thought there would be no better way to express my gratitude to all of you for reading my blog than by hosting a little giveaway.
First up is a real spool of thread in the color of your choice to go along with an earbud holder shaped like a spool of thread. I like a bit of surrealism so had to buy this for a giveaway when I saw it awhile ago. Actually, I bought it before I even though about making a podcast, but it goes pretty well with my Stitches podcast. If you’re a knitter & don’t sew I’ll send you some heel reinforcement yarn for sock darning instead of a real spool of thread.
Second is McCall’s 6331, a Palmer Pletsch dress & romper with a vaguely 50’s feel.
Third, McCall’s 6027, a dress with eight gores.
Fourth, a winter coat. I believe this one has been discontinued, so you can’t get it in stores any more.
- Leave me a comment below saying which of the giveaway lots you’d like to win, if it’s just one or all of them. Also say what you like about my blog & what you’d like to see more of. You could tell me you don’t like anything about my blog at all, but it is my birthday week. I think there’s some rule somewhere about having to be nice to people when it’s their birthday.
- For five extra entries you can also follow my blog, follow me on Pinterest, follow me on Twitter, tweet about this giveaway, or post about this giveaway on your blog. To get credit make sure you mention all the extra things you do in the same comment that lists the lot(s) you’re trying to win.
This giveaway is open until midnight CST next Friday, February 8th. And now I’ll leave you with what may be the best picture of all time. *update: it’s not my cat- I wish it were! It’s just some wonderfully amazing fashion designer feline in the making that my boyfriend saw on the internet.
