What a fun giveaway! Thanks for the chance...Id love to see something in plush my daughter would draw!!!

Congrats Jenny, have your daughter draw something and email it to me right away!

I had such a nice time reading all of your wonderful, sweet comments, especially Kathie who really touched me when she said her favorite post was the Gigi waffle post. That's my favorite too! That really was super super sweet. I was so touched I decided to give away the fabric as well. The second winner is SewCalGal!

Congratulations on your blogging Anniversary. You really do have a creative blog that I enjoy reading.Your give-away idea is certainly fun. And very nice of you to do. I'm sure whomever wins will enjoy your prizes. I know I would.As I love to make charity quilts for kids, I'd be happy to win any fabric that would help to make such quilts. And, as I'm working on a couple of different fundraisers, I think one of your cute handmade toys would also be great in a gift basket. So, I am very flexible - if I win, you decide.Keep quilting, sewing & blogging!

Congrats winners! I wish I could give everyone a prize, I really do. I heart you all!


It's my 97th post and also my first blogaversary! It was on August 22 of last year that I posted Gigi's Heart of My Heart quilt as my very first post. It took a while to get readers, but now I've got a few (that's you)!

Of course I have to have a giveaway to celebrate! Here's the catch: the only ones eligible to win will be those of you who have commented at least once on my blog in the last year. If this is your first time here, have fun looking around and come back next time I have a giveaway! This one is exclusively to thank my loyal blog commenters/readers.

Since this giveaway is for a small group of people, I'm making the prize personal as well. Whomever wins, I will let you pick your prize!

Choice #1: A medium amount of regular quilt store fabric from my stash in your choice of color way/theme (sorry, I just can't part with my premium designer stash!). I have tons of kitties and doggies, Asian, novelty, repros, flannel, etc. All from an actual quilt store, not bargain basement.

Choice #2: A stuffed toy I will make just for you. Check out the stuffed toys i've blogged to see examples. Heck, i'll even make your toy from your own personal sketch and put your name on the back too! Such a deal, I tell ya!

So ok, start yer commenting now loyal commenters! I'll draw a winner Monday night after 7pm.

jess said...

YAY! Congrats! And it's about time I do a giveaway at some point too...
You KNOW you inspired me to cast away my sewing machine, right? I'm on quilt #2, all by hand. :o)
I would *love* one of your hand stitched dudes. I love things that come from the heart, and the hands.

That's a very generous giveaway! Oh, and I love the museum installation - gorgeous.

Wendy said...

Wendy, what a fun idea for a giveaway! I'm so glad I found your blog, and still can't believe both of us have the same orange kitchen wall!

Joyce said...

Altho I'm not eligible for your contest, I just wanted to say hi. I enjoyed browsing your blog. I've been thinking about doing the same thing for my first anniversary. I don't have many people that have commented on my site so only seems fair to reward those that have stuck with me. I'm not the greatest blogger!

Nancy said...

well, I am a loyal reader, but alas a terrible commenter!!!
Maybe this will make me change my ways....

sunshine said...

I'd love some fabric! Did you know that I've been thinking about making a quilt entirely by hand thanks to the example you've been setting?

Cheers,
Christine

Wanda said...

You don't have to enter my name...the postage would be too much. Just wanted to say that I look forward to your posts and I'm very glad I "found" you! Congrats!

SewCalGal said...
