Celebrating over 100 followers giveaway!




It's so much fun to cross that magic 3-digit line and I've been saying to myself that when that day comes, I have to celebrate it with a giveaway! =)

But since I'm one of those people who don't have a huge fabric stash and  most of the stuff I buy is earmarked for a special project, I had such a hard time deciding what to give away! The solution came to me in the shape of Tova, she suggested I gave away the extra fabric I had left from making my favorite bag!

 
The Kitty Yoshida City Girl fabrics are some of my favorites, such lovely, wearable colors! They go with jeans, they go with mocha, they go with anything! I had around ½ yard left of both of them so that's in there and I also added about a fat quarter of two other light green fabrics in the spirit of spring to the bundle since I didn't have anything but scraps left of the light blue I used. I might sneak in something else in there too, but I haven't decided what just yet ^^


I try to keep Diana away from my stash but everything from our home comes with the risk of cat hair, so if you're super allergic, this giveaway might not be for you.

~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~

So enough of this rambling, how do you win?

It's very simple, you don't have to be a follower, you don't have to do anything special, just please make sure you're not a no- reply blogger since then I can't contact you if you win. =)

1. Just leave  a comment on this post and you're entered!

2. And since this is a follower celebration giveaway, my followers of course get one extra chance to win so just post a separate comment saying you're a follower. New followers too of course!

Winner will be announced in about a week and I ship to any place in the world. I also want to reach out and *hug* all my followers, it's so much fun to know that someone is actually reading what I'm writing and every time you comment, you make my day!
Thanks everyone, I love you! <3

  20. I love your blog and knew I would be a follower when I saw your beautiful kitty on your header (!!!) as well as your Sunkissed Quilt that was on the Moda website. I've got my Sunkissed quilt done except for the appliqué part (I'm not very confident about doing it and I don't want to mess up as this will be a quilt for my niece who is graduating from high school in May so I've been dragging my feet for the last month). I'm thinking that tomorrow I will review some appliqué tutorials on YouTube and give it a go as May is right around the corner....keep your fingers crossed for me (and my niece)! Congratulations on reaching 100 followers!!!

    1. Awww, thank you! <3

      The applique part really isn't as scary as one would think and since it's on it's own separate section the big one - you don't have to be all that nervous as you could theoretically just toss it and start over if needed =)
      I recommend half a glass or so of good wine before you start if you enjoy wine as it's a good way to relax a little and get those curves smoother ^^

      I'll keep all fingers crossed for you here, best of luck with it, I'm sure you'll do great!

    2. Thanks so much for your suggestion!! I FINALLY got the middle section done yesterday (I don't have a sewing room, so I have to drag out the sewing machine and ironing board every time I want to sew and then my kitties have to look at everything I'm trying to work on and then they try to walk on it and sleep on it, and then my husband needs something.....sheesh!!!).

      I really did make the appliqué a bigger deal than it was - you were right....it was actually quite fun. I have to tell your that I thought your glass of wine suggestion was great, but then I goofed up one of the smaller leaves pretty bad and I had a GIANT wad of thread that I had to spend half-an-hour trying to remove without putting a hole in the background fabric. Now its pretty funny, then it wasn't.

      Today my goal is to put the whole quilt together (I'm going to have to put the little fur ball kitties in the other room and try to ignore them crying outside the "sewing room" door begging to come in...they love it when I sew!). I'm thinking this should get done pretty quickly.

      I would like to send you a picture to show you the quilt (I think it already looks pretty good in three pieces) but I need to get my husband to help me figure out how to take a digital picture and how to get it into the computer since I don't have a clue how to do this.

      Thanks so much for replying to my post and for your encouragement! I didn't expect it and it was a great surprise.

      I can't wait to see your next pattern!!

    3. So glad to read that you managed with the applique without too much trouble (there always have to be one big ball of thread emergency per quilt anyway I think, it's like a law of nature ^^).

      I hear you about the difficulties of not having a sewing room, I lived like that for years before I finally decided I had to prioritize and make myself one. Since we've moved quite a lot I've had a "sewing room" in anything from a box room to guest-room to a corner of the living room and it's not always an ideal situation with the cat =) She's normally allowed to "help" but for some parts she gets to stay on the other side of the door.

      I'm really looking forward to seeing your finished quilt! I hope your husband can help you with the photo as I'm so excited to see it.

      I can't wait to release my next pattern! However, life has gotten in the way of my quilting and sewing lately so it might be a few more months before that will happen =)
