Oh wow oh wow oh wow. I woke up this morning and my Blogger Dashboard told me I had 101 followers all of a sudden. Oh my oh my oh my.
|This is Walnut's surprised face. Look how big his eyes are!|
When I started blogging my haphazard projects last May, I never thought I'd have people around the world reading my rambles about geekery and sewing and the wonders of thrifted sheets. My dear readers, thank you so much for caring enough to follow my blog, despite all the cobbled together fake-torials and sentences with too many parenthetical insertions. Thank you for your kindness and encouragement as I strive to learn and grow in my creativity. Thank you for all the helpful advice you've given about my fit issues. Thank you for bearing with all the pictures of Walnut, because he really is the most darling cat.
I am so grateful for the online sewing (and other creative pursuits) community. Having moved away from my IRL community twice in the last five years (first from the Bay Area to SD, then from SD to LA), it's been such a blessing to have people I've never met extend such friendliness and welcome. As a gesture of thanks (and also because this seems to be the done thing), I am holding a 101
I'll be giving away these two patterns:
|Simplicity 3932 A, 1960s, a culotte "dress" pattern in size 20.5, bust 41; Butterick 8509, 1960, a "quick 'n easy" dress in size 12, bust 32.|
- Leave a comment saying which pattern you'd like.
- Just to stroke my ego (but I'll stroke Walnut too, so really you're stroking the softest cat in the world by proxy), tell me which of my projects (sewing or otherwise) is your favorite.
- It doesn't matter if you live outside of the US, you can enter! If you live on Chiron Beta Prime, though, you're out of luck. The robot overlords would never let the package through if you won.
- It goes without saying, but you really should be a follower of my blog. Given that I have no idea who is subscribing through an RSS feed (I can only see my followers on Google Friend Connect), I guess this will be by the honor system. I'll assume that you're a follower if you leave a comment. Also goes without saying, but I hope you really intend to sew up the pattern! Please don't win it just so you can turn around and sell it on Etsy or use it as kindling or make a craft project (does anyone else feel slightly horrified by this?).
I'll close the giveaway on Friday, January 13, 2012, at noon PST. The two winners will be chosen by

Thank you again, dear readers. Thank you.
