It's my 400th-post-aversary!

I love blogging.

But you knew that, right?

I love this community. I love when I get to meet you in real life, which I do fairly often!

If you read my blog, then you pretty much know me. For real. I'm like this.

You've seen me through intense highs and lows. You've celebrated with me, you've comforted me,  cheered me on, understood me,  laughed with me, come on travels with me.

I may not know you yet, but you are my friend and I thank you for caring for me or being interested in what I post. We would totally be friends in real life if you came in to the shop regularly, or if we took yoga classes together, or met through a mutual friend.

We're friends already, I just haven't met you yet.

In appreciation, I offer you my 400th post giveaway!

If you are the randomly chosen winner, you will receive a copy of my book Small Stash Sewing!

And some of my first fabric line Sugar Snap!

I know, it's hard to find these days. But you know who carries some?

The sweet Jen from Runner Girl Fabric, who was kind enough to provide four half-yard cuts to celebrate my 400th post!

Check out her shop, won't you?

So in addition to my book, you will receive a half yard of Lace:

And Jellyfruit:

And Kimono:

And Wallpaper:

Pretty good, right?

To enter, just go ahead and leave a comment on this post and tell me what you'd like to see more of from me here on the blog, or how long you've been reading it, or something like that.

I'll leave it up to you, but tell me something, ok?

Also, it would make me all happy on the inside if you join me on ye olde facebook page!

A winner will be drawn on Tuesday, July 6, the day after my birthday!


I have a ton of bloggin' to do, you guys!

I still have to finish Quilt Market recap, London recap, blog the art reception, sneak peak my new line with Andover (it's a GO!), and we are woefully behind on the Bronte-Along.

Back soon with some hot bloggy action, fiends.




P.S. Go make something ridiculous and awesome with the Keep-Calm-O-Matic.

UPDATED 7/9 to say this giveaway is now CLOSED, yo! Thank you so much to all those who left lovely comments! 

The lucky winner is Renee, who said:

 I discovered your blog about a year ago and have throughly enjoyed it. If I'm ever in the area I would love to check out the shop. It's a long way from Georgia but maybe one day. Congrats on the book, the new line, and #400! What a great reason for a giveaway!
Yay! Email me your address ( and I will send you my book and some of my Sugar Snap fabric!
