Yeah, that's right, it's my blog's birthday! I started this thing 5 years ago today. I still can't believe I've kept it running this long....less that people actually take the time to read it and comment on the stuff I make! That's pretty amazing, and I really am grateful for that. The online sewing community is a really nice place to hang out, isn't it?
The other big milestone-ish thing coming up is that I'm almost at 600 posts! (I tried really hard to work it so that today would be both, but I didn't quite make it. Oh well.) So since this is basically a double big thing, I figured this would be a good time to do a long-overdue giveaway! When I asked earlier in the summer what people would be interested in for that, the couple of responses I got were some kind of crafting supply, and something that could be sent overseas. (I seem to run into a lot of people from England and Australia through this!) I also want to make this fair to the knitters that have started showing up around here since the beginning of the year, so here's what I'm going to do:
Whoever wins the giveaway will get one $30 gift certificate (US dollars) to the sewing or knitting-related shop to their choice. (It can be a major retailer, indie shop, Etsy--as long as I can get a gift certificate for it online!) So to enter, you need to answer two questions:
1. What shop would you pick?
2. What project are you most excited to make this fall?
No anonymous comments, please-- I need to have some way of contacting you! I'm going to give you until midnight EST on September 19.
Edit, 9/20: This giveaway is now CLOSED. I'll be drawing the winner later today.
