Whats your prize - fabric or a book?


Hello!  Hope your Tuesday has been good to you.  Even if its been splendiferous (and really why wouldn't it?) it might be about to get even better.

I get a lot out of my sewing and writing this blog and....this is my 200th blog post!  I really appreciate everyone who clicks in for a read, weather it be just for a browse, or taking some time out of their precious day to leave a much appreciated comment.  So I am celebrating this little milestone and saying "thank you" to my readers by hosting a giveaway. 

So without further ado here is the drill - leave a comment on this post to win either:

Four fat quarters of House Fall Flowers fabric from Free Spirit Fabrics in the four colourways of sand, pink, blue and teal (the design is the same on all pieces).  This is light weight cotton broadcloth fabric and deliciously soft.  If you want to see more details of this fabric click on over to Funky Fabrix.


Or if you are not a fabric addict but a sewing book lover (although I suspect most of you are both) then alternatively on offer is Lotta Jansdotter's book Simple Sewing.  This is a very gorgeous book with 24 projects mostly for around the home but with a good selection of simple bags too.  The book comes with patterns and has easy to follow instructions.


Just nominate what you would like to win in your comment.  I will send anywhere so this is open to international visitors too.

For an extra entry tell me if you already are, or have just become a follower of my blog.

Alternatively, if you prefer to use Facebook and are not a regular user of Blogger then please feel free to leave a comment there if you want a chance to win.  If you don't have a blog and I don't know you personally then please leave an email address so I can contact you if you win.

I'll draw a winner out of my teapot next Monday.  Good luck everybody!

Hooray for all those posts and the great record of a chunk of your life. I am already a follower and lover of your blog and your style. I already have the book so its the fabric for me if I am lucky enough.

Congrats on 200 posts, that's very impressive. I've been hooked on your blog for a while now and thinks it just lovely. It's so down to earth and inspiring. If I was lucky enough to win I'd definitely pick the book. Such a great prize and so generous of you. By the way, how did you make the rocket cake?

Yowzers, 200 posts? Congrats! I'm not there yet, then again I only seem to be posting and catching up on blogs once a week at present.

Anyway, I've been reading along for a while and enjoy your creations and musings. I'd happily take that fabric off your hands, too, if opportunity arises ;)
