The fine line of wanting to capture memories and important moments with my kids - yet a little anxious about putting my kids out there on the internet for all to see. The balancing act of hobby vs family blog. Who knew I had so much to say and show over the last 5 years!
I appreciate so much the kind words and sweet comments I have gotten over the years. The words of advise on hard days. The cheering my family on during our new adventures. The support and compliments on my little projects. And especially the encouragement in starting my new business. I appreciate each and every comment I receive and page view I get. I know our time is precious and I am so grateful that people my be interested in what goes on in my little world.
To honor all that and celebrate my 500th post - I thought it would be fun to host a little giveaway. This is my first giveaway, so I'm pretty excited!
I went back and forth on what to offer. Fabric because I love it so much? A pattern that is on my to do list? A finished something? Which is what I ended up with. I chose a table runner. And not just a table runner, but one of my favorites.
I made a couple of the runners when I was trying to complete a Schnibbles project and decided I was Schnibbles impaired. But what came out of my mistakes was a couple of my favorite runners ever! I love these pastel colors from the Martinique line by 3 Sisters. Especially right now - they bring a springy feel into the house which is so needed with the cold out!
I also love the backing on this runner - flip the runner for a different look. Aqua and red is so in right now I love it!
And stars - you all should know about my love affair with stars....so this runner has it all for me!
I love runners for several reasons - I can use up scraps from my quilting projects, I can get them done in an hour and feel like I've accomplished something. I love the pop of color they add to areas in my house. And I love that I can change them out monthly if I like.
I use them on my dining table, entry table, coffee table, island, dresser - they can go everywhere. I even throw them over a chair now and then to add some color into my family room.
So...the giveaway part - EASY - leave me a comment telling me what your favorite project/hobby is. Doesn't have to be sewing related - anything you want - I want to get to know you and what you like to do most in life!
I'll chose a winner next Monday the 11th and announce it here. Please make sure you aren't a no reply email so I can contact you via email if you win.
Good luck - and thank you so much for stopping by.
