100th post celebrations!

Giveaway has closed. Thank you for all the entries - winner announced shortly!


I'm quite excited to be making my 100th post! I would never have thought blogging could become so addictive, but yup, it is, and has.

So without further ado, let the celebrations begin!
So, whats up for grabs in my giveaway? Well, what lady doesn't like the chance for some free fabric? Exactly.

So, we have a "Nells Flower Shop" charm pack from Moda (I LOVE this range. Seriously, love it.) We also have a journal cover I made (A5 size, journal not included,) in funky bright colours. And of course, every journal needs a pretty ribbon to hold it closed.

And finally, we have 3 pretty purple Fat Eights, just to continue on with my "Purple yumminess" from my previous post. Gotta love purple. Seems alot of people like it too!

So, if you would like to be in the running to win my giveaway prize, there are a couple of ways to enter:

1. Simply leave a comment before Saturday the 12th of September 6pm (AEST) on this post for 1 entry.

2. For an extra entry, become a follower of my blog.

3. If you are already a follower of my blog (as of 5.55pm 5th of September) you will automatically gain an extra entry.

4. Post about my giveaway on your blog for an extra entry.

So, when you leave a comment, let me know how many entries you have, ie: Yes, I am a follower and yes, I have posted about your giveaway. Etc. Etc. I will be checking! Winner will be announced and contacted on the 13th. Oh, and make sure your profile isn't set to annonymous- otherwise I can't contact you if you win!!

So, it's that simple! And as I said, who doesn't want free fabric??!

Now, remember to check out my other blog, Sew Blessed, for some updates about making clothes and toys for orphans in Indonesia. I've had so many people get on board and support what I'm doing - it's just great!
And finally, a small brag. Ok, a big brag.

I got the suprise of my life when I opened the latest Homespun Magazine (Vol 10.9) to find my block 2 for the Breast of Friends Quilt!

There it is! In print! In HOMESPUN! Talk about exciting! If you haven't seen the latest Homespun, check it out! Oh, and by the way, the final quilt for the Breast of Friends is just D.E.V.I.N.E.
But, make sure you check out next years Homespun, I believe the April edition. Why, you may ask? Well, you'll see a project from me in it. Yes - I know! Excitment, much?

I saw your block in the mag, with the name & was sure it was you! How exciting!
I LOVE the Nell's Flower Shop range & the charm squares would be oh so perfect to add to my stash.
