That's almost as old as Kate, and almost as zany! Almost.
Two years of craft-blogging! Fun. Thank you all for making it another exciting year. I appreciate all my followers (there are almost 800 of you! Helloooooo!), all my commentors, all my readers who share photos, stories, questions and requests, all my fellow bloggers who send me awards, who link and link and link and who regularly feature me on their sites, all my buyers-of-patterns and etsy store customers and all you other wonderful people out there who say things like, "because of you, I decided not to donate my sewing machine to Goodwill" (sorry, Goodwill) and "yesterday I made shorts for the first time from your tutorial and didn't drink vodka during".
I am going to celebrate by not sewing today and going to the park. We've all been sick with coughs and general crabbiness the whole past week so today is the first day I feel as if I can go out with the kids without fainting. So to the park/pond we go, armed with a bag of stale bread with which to nourish the fish and other aquatic denizens therein!
But I also want to celebrate with you - so let's play a game:
Something from my latest project. Want to guess? Yes, it's another circle like the last time you all had to guess. I like round things, wot. The beams of my deck should give you an idea of how small/big it is. Leave a comment on this post with
- your guess and
- your email address (or a link to your blogger profile with it)
and I'll pick the first right answer or the one that's closest, whichever is first. If you want to make a second guess when some new idea hit you later in the day, go right ahead and leave a second (or third) comment. I'll moderate and publish your comments as they come in. This photo will be your only clue, and tomorrow sometime I will close the giveaway and tell you what it is. Anyone in the world with a valid email address can enter. The winner will get the pdf pattern to make this weird thing (if they want it, I mean - they can always shriek and say, "ugg, no thank you, I've changed my mind" of course).
Unrelated and yet not: thanks for the interest in the free bibs. I apologize if that post was misleading in making you all leave comments with email addresses etc as if that were the giveaway post. It wasn't. Sorry about that. I just took some pictures this morning and sorted out which of the bib pieces are in girl and boy fabrics and counted them up. Either today or tomorrow I will do a proper giveaway post with deadlines and instructions on letting me know whether you want girl or boy bibs and who can enter.
So quite a few gifts for you this week! Again, thank you all for reading along with me this year (and the last)!
