Celebrating 2 Years: A Giveaway!

Can you believe its been two years since I started blogging? I can't! What a journey it's been, and I've loved (almost) every minute of it. I've learned absolutely tonnes and I've made great, great friends along the way, both near and far.

I don't want to spend too much time reviewing, so I just put together a little collage of some of my very favourite projects in the last couple of year. I had a bit of a hard job picking them but lots of fun looking back through 2 years worth of pictures.


So, to celebrate, I have an amazing giveaway for you courtesy of the very generous Julie of The Intrepid Thread.



I have been swooning over the lovely fabrics just recently arrived in her fab shop and eventually picked some Oh Deer by Momo for the giveaway prize. This lovely bundle of 13 (yes, 13!!!) Fat Quarters in gorgeous fresh, cool greens, blues and browns will be the prize for the winner:




Are you swooning yet? I know I am. These have little boy quilt written all over them, in my book! If you want to buy some, you can find the full collection here. You might also like to check out Chicopee and Field Study which just arrived.

So here's the entry info. This is thank you giveaway for all my lovely followers so you can have 3 entries by leaving separate comments for each on this post:

1. Leave me a comment telling me what you would make with these fabrics
2. Like The Intrepid Thread on Facebook or sign up for the newsletter and leave a comment letting me know you do.
3. Followers of my blog or Facebook page get a bonus entry - just let me know how you follow, whether on GFC, Reader, Email or Facebook. New followers can enter.

Please note that I have had to change my comment settings to deal with high volumes of spam. This means I no longer accept anonymous comments - you need to have a have a Google account or Open ID. Please please leave your email address in the comment unless you are absolutely sure you not a no-reply blogger.
If I cannot contact the winner, I will redraw. Entries are open until 9pm (Irish time) on Sunday evening 27th August and winner will be drawn randomly. Duplicate entries will be deleted.  Only comments on this post will be included in the draw.

Enjoy!

I would certainly find a pattern that says BOY all over it, and go for it. There just aren't enough boyish things, and I agree. These do say boy all over them.
