Blogiversary! Woo-Hoo!

Hey folks, this is a very exciting moment! I've been blogging a year!

Here's what I've learned:
I like blogging!
I want to sew and blog more than I do.
The main and most important thing that has happened this year, is that I have met a wonderful quilty community across the globe and made new friends. Thank you all!!

Now onto the good stuff - it's Giveaway Time!

A special day deserves a special celebration, and I just want to share some stash goodness and give someone else a happy day too! Which is where you come in.

I have this obsession with mild habit of making little stash collections. Purples-with-maroons. Greys. Light greys. (Two totally different categories, duh.) Stuff to match my Midtown Miami. Text.


Drumroll, please - I have this yummy, juicy, stack of texty fabric, and it's all gonna be wrapped up and sent to one lucky reader! Each piece was cut randomly, ranging from smallish to almost a quarter yardish.


To enter this Giveaway - and why wouldn't you?! It's all text, all the time, baby! - just leave a comment and share some text of your own: tell me the title of a book you love.

The Giveaway is until Friday 7 June, so get your comment in now!

Happy Blogiversary! A year goes by fast when you're having fun, doesn't it? I don't find time to read very often but when I do, it's usually something by James Patterson. The last one I read was "Kill Me If You Can."

Lovely fabric. I just finished 'The Hundred Year old Man who climbed out of a windeo and dissapeared'. Bit odd, but really good.
