Second Blogiversary Giveaway!

*****THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED*****

Hey, guys!  Happy Wednesday!  May is one of my favorite months– the weather really starts to get nice here in the northeast, and there are so many things to celebrate!  Last week was my seventh wedding anniversary, next week is Man Friend’s 30th birthday, and we’re just a few days away from celebrating our first Peggy-versary (one year since we adopted our cheerful girl dog from Animal Haven)!  But amidst all the hubbub, I missed my second blogiversary on May 11th!  But don’t worry– I didn’t forget about you guys!

I picked out some amazing fabric for you guys on my trip to Mood over the weekend!  It’s two yards of a gorgeous silk charmeuse, with one matte and one shiny side.  My (grainy due to the crappy, dark weather) photo doesn’t really do it justice, but it’s a lovely gray with a hint of lavender in it.  Suzanne at Beau Baby made an awesome blouse with a different colorway of this print in chiffon (Mood often carries silk prints that are offered in both chiffon and charmeuse, which is fun)– check it out here!

To enter the giveaway, just leave a comment!  If you already know what you would make with it, let me know in the comments, too– I always love to snoop!  I’ll ship it anywhere.  Just enter by 11:59PM next Wednesday, May 29th, one week from today.  Hooray!

Thanks so much for reading my blog over the past two years!  It’s been so much fun getting to know you guys through your comments and blogs (and in person, whenever I get the chance!)!  Thanks to you, sewing is a fun, communal activity for me and not just solitary time spent hunching over my machine, cursing and seam ripping!

  5. That is the most beautiful fabric. I am obsessed with birds in design. Not the homey, country type of birds, but styled ones like this print! I am really crossing my fingers on this one! Thank you!!

  7. Wow, 2 years- time flies when you’re having fun (and sewing!). This is some beautiful fabric you’ve got up for grabs. I’m not sure what I’d make with it, but maybe a dress with a simple silhouette so the birds could speak for themselves 🙂 Looking forward to following along with your continuing sewing adventures!

  23. Congrats on two years of blogging! And you’ve chosen such a lovely print here – if I won, I’d love to do a simple tank dress to really show off the beauty of the fabric (and keep cool in the $(#*$ing hot NYC summer I know is just around the bend). I’m thinking maybe Megan Nielsen’s Eucalypt tank dress would be perfect!
