The fun stuff

Quite awhile ago I decided that I'd do a little something when I hit 500 followers - it seemed like a far-away and unlikely number! Then it started getting closer and I thought I'd better get myself organised and maybe a giveaway would be good. I was in Spotlight one day after a conversation with a friend about the Denyse Schmidt fabrics they carry and I thought perhaps they would be suitable fodder. I was hoping to get some of the Spotlight-only prints and I did find a few of them which was nice. In the meantime the followers jumped past the 500 mark and now there are 507 of you lovely people - and of course the RSS feed readers of whom there are an unknown number - hello to you all! I'm still astounded that so many people have taken the time to add me to their blog rolls and of course very flattered!

So what do I have for you?

DS Quilts bundles

 There are three bundles of 8 metric fat quarters (0.5m x half the width of fabric), and they all contain two of the NZ/Oz-only prints. One of the bundles is for someone who has commented on my blog in the last month, I appreciate your comments so much! The other two bundles will go to two people who leave a comment below, international entries welcome! One comment per person, I'm not looking to publicise this, or gain more followers or anything like that. Doesn't matter what you say, but make sure I have some way of contacting you. If you can't get Disqus to work (and I know some of you have problems with it at times) please send an email to me (you need to type the address in manually, it's just a image so I don't get spambots picking it up) and I will add you in! I will use a random number generator to pick names from the two pools (and yes, if you have commented previously you can most certainly put your name in below for a second chance) and announce the winners next Monday morning NZ time.

    I always admire your work you have such patience.............something I dont always have when it comes to sewing especially with a machine. Give me hand sewing any day.

  13. Hello! Found your blog a couple of years ago, just after I'd had my own little Hazel :) Love your stories, your creations, and, perhaps most of all, your tagline "people of taste and discretion!"  Thanks for sharing the creative parts of your life with us!

  14. I've been following you for quite sometime and actually read your blog posts instead of just skimming through. I wish I would take the time and comment more regularly so I didn't feel so stalkerish :)  Congrats on hitting 500!

  18. Pop me into the draw. I only found your blog this week and love it. If I'm lucky enough to win it will be fun coming up with a quilt design for them, fingers and toes crossed.

  20. What a lovely giveaway Jacqui - I really love the blue and green prints (I would seeing as I'm in a house with so mcuh testosterone).   love the e-book cover!! Fabulous colours!

  21. I think you've just inspired me to go turn on that subscribers/followers widget.  I've been avoiding it since I figured it'd just depress me.  I should be less negative, right? 

    Congrats on the milestone and yes please on the fabric!
