It's my blog-a-versary!! (blogiversary?)...anyway, I'm having my first giveaway to celebrate. Last year I started this blog as an experiment. I'd started checking out other blogs long ago, most often when I was looking for a technique or tutorial - except for a few knitting or general sewing/craft blogs I'd followed more diligently.
It has been a fun year of testing this out. I've posted only 67 times, but I wanted to post at least once a week, so I more or less averaged out to that. I have posted many crafty projects, large and small - and I have a really nice small group of cool followers, both through Google/blogger and through Facebook. I entered contests (with some success), giveaways (random success a few times), a charity quilt project (H2H just finished), and even submitted a block design to Fat Quarterly - all things I would not have done if I hadn't been blogging. Even as a part-time crafter this is a really great feeling to have after one year.
So for any of you who would like a little giveaway - here's your chance! I'm sure it won't be my last because I have now won 4 giveaways at least, myself (recently a couple of charm packs from lovely blogland shops). So I need to keep the kharma flowing.
Here is what I am offering (please note that if you are strictly a knitter and not a sewist or quilter I could be persuaded to swap the fabric for some yarn from my stash...)
First this little stack of 4 Michael Miller FQs - from some fabrics I bough recently and though it would be fun to share. I think they are just so pretty and remind me of a summer garden.
And second is a little zipper pouch made from a cute Japanese owl print and a gold stripe lining -
The pouch and fabric make a cute little bundle tied in twine and they will be sent out to a lucky winner in honor of my happy 1st blogaversary (blogiversary?). (Remember, if fabric is not your thing - even if fiber in general is not your thing I am sure I have something in my crafty stash to send out...so please celebrate with me!)
To enter, just leave me a comment below. Tell me anything you want about your summer so far - has it been good? crazy? international? campy? homey? hopefully not too natural disaster-y...
If you are one of my faithful followers (or if you want to become one), you can leave an extra comment telling me so for an extra entry.
Mr. Random Number Generator will choose a winner on Thursday 8pm PST. PLEASE leave an email address in your comment if you are not a blogger or on google connect with an email reply option - "No Reply" comments are impossible to notify if they win! You can be tricksy and just write the at's and dot's out to avoid spammer-spies or whoever may want access to your email through viral invasion type means...
