200th Blog Post Giveaway

GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED!

A couple of exciting things are happening here in my world. First of all I got the official blessing from the
Amy Butler camp to host the "Little Stitches for Little Ones" Sew-Along. They're very excited about it and will be checking in on our progress to see all the awesome little projects that we make. How cool is that? I'm going to be starting up next week, so get ready.

I'll post a new project every Thursday starting July 21st. This week I'm going to be working on the Cutie Booties (Project G in the book). I'm making them for my friend Kerry who is having a little boy due in August. I thought that a little boy is a perfect excuse to cut into my coveted City Weekend and Jay McCarroll Woodland Wonderland. Aren't those ants so cute? Obviously, I'm not going to be working through the book in order and you don't have to either. You don't even have to be working on the same project I am. I know that a project a week is a big commitment for many of you. You don't have to be as ambitious as I am just link up and join in whenever you feel like it. I will host a linky party each week so you can link up your projects (either in progress or finishes) for everyone to see. And I also started a Flickr group as an additional space to show off your progress or get advice from me or other members of the group if you're having trouble on a particular project. You can join the Flickr group here.

And I said that there were a couple exciting things going on, right? Well, I just realized that this is my 200th blog post! Seriously, who know I would reach 200 posts?! Not I, when I started this little blog last year. No way! So to celebrate I'm going to give away a copy of "Little Stitches" so you can join in the fun. And don't worry you can still enter and win even if you don't have the time to join in the sew-along fun, I just thought nothing could be more appropriate. So how do you win? I'm not going to ask you to become a follower or blog about this. Please, only do that if you want to. Nope, all you have to do is simply leave me a comment. Any comment will do.

The Fine Print: One comment per person, please. International entries are always welcome. I'll leave the giveaway open until Sunday, July 17th. Good Luck!

  12. This sounds like such a fun sew along! Too bad I had just finished making 2 sets of baby gifts, or this would have been perfect. And congrats on your 200th post, that's a big milestone! Thanks for the giveaway, I have been eyeing that book for quite some time ever since I found out my coworkers are expecting, I went and bought a few baby sewing books under the disguise that I NEEDED them for the baby gifts, but really I just have been dying to get them. This is one of the book I wasn't able to get, so here's hoping =P

  13. This is great timing! I've been thinking about what I'm going to make my granddaughters this year for Christmas. Ironically, I've considered slippers - the girls are older.

    I absolutely LOVE Amy Butler Designs. Last year I made her gumdrop pillows. Let me know if you'd like to see my YouTube video about the project. Looking forward to linking up. And, congratulations on your 200th post.

    Your cousin, B.J.
