Alright, so seriously guys, the giveaway next week to celebrate my two year blogiversary is going to be awesome! Some really amazing fellow bloggers have signed up to giveaway some wonderful prizes (I'll give you a couple of hints... Tula Pink, not yet released Moda fabrics, patterns, and soooo much more!); so far on the list of awesome people participating are John, Heather, Jennifer, Katy, Ryan, Kate, Angela, Stef, Trish, and Jessica - woohoo, you guys are the greatest! If you'd like to participate in my little giveaway let me know! Either leave a comment on this post, send me an email, or say hi on Twitter. I will, of course, also be putting a little something in for the giveaway but I'm not letting go of hints on that one quite yet. My actual blogiversary is on the 17th and depending on how many people want to join in on the fun I will either do a huge giveaway on the day of, or spread it out over three days.
Speaking of giveaways, I have a few things to show you... I won some giveaways! I actually won this first giveaway a little bit back and received it in the mail at the end of May/beginning of June but completely forgot to show pics!
You all know Elizabeth of Oh, Fransson right? Well this awesome package of Mingle and Groove fabrics by Robert Kaufman is from her; isn't it pretty? These fabrics would be absolutely perfect for a boy quilt so I'm keeping them stashed until I come up with the perfect pattern.
Right before we left for Moncton I found out from Austen that I had won one of the giveaway's on Canadian Living's craft blog, Make & Do.
I received this copy of Handmade Nation from Austen on Wednesday and I love it. Doesn't it look at home there sitting next to my Euclid quilt?
And last, but definitely not least, I won one of Heather's super-cool birthday giveaways and I think I came out alright!
Look at this gorgeous stack of Tufted Tweets by Laurie Wisbrun! Laurie donated this awesome fat quarter stack, as well as some prints from her Donkeys and Wellies Spoonflower-printed collection (which was won by Karrie) to Heather's birthday extravaganza - thanks Heather and Laurie!
Unfortunately the package did not arrive in the greatest condition...
But thankfully Heather overdosed on wrapping the package in plastic and used lots of packing tape so the contents were fine! We had quite a lot of rain this morning and I guess my mailman is not very good at keeping packages dry (that's another point against you Canada Post). Funnily enough, my Handmade Nation book also arrived in a mangled package and the guy from Purolator said that it got stuck in a conveyor belt - gee whiz!
I'm going to spend the night sewing and working on some new patterns, since it has finally cooled down enough to actually sit in front of the sewing machine and use an iron for any length of time! Hope your Friday has been lovely!
