My Blogiversary and a Giveaway


Can't believe it's that time again!
I have been blogging for a ((little)) while now and it doesn't really feel like it has been that long.

Looking back through some of my posts I can see how much I've grown as a blogger.
Not really my typing/wording but how much my photographs and sewing has come along.
Let's be real here; I'm not winning a Pulitzer anytime soon.

I thought I would share a few of my favorite and most viewed pages before getting to the giveaway.


Most Viewed















Followed a close second by my tutorial on
how to make this bag



(see those awful photo's I was talking about??)














My favorite things on the blog that I sewed


The whole musketeer ensemble
for Halloween that year.
















Something I sewed (and loved) but he only
wore one other time














Now that we've completed our walk down memory lane...



THE GIVEAWAY!!



I am giving away 2 Wishes by Moda charm packs
and 3 spools of my favorite Gutermann threads
in color 20,22 and 102








a Rafflecopter giveaway

    1. I know first hand how hard it can be sometimes to not only finish a project but then get pictures and write about it! Just know that your followers will see what you write when you write, no matter how few and far between they are:)

    1. It's hard to imagine that someday my little boy will be 29; I'm sure it will pass in the blink of an eye like they say.

    1. You should totally try it out!
      It was McCall's M5214. Looking back the hardest thing was probably the white ruffly shirt but you could skip it and get something ready made at the costume shop for that item.

    1. Everyone raves about Aurifil but I can't say much about it; I won some but it's so expensive to me that I'm afraid to open it! haha I love my go - to Gutermann. I even went and bought the variety wall set too on the 50% off thread once when JoAnn's had that sale.
