100th post party!

May 16, 2007 at 10:09 am | Posted in Blog, games, plush, Sewing/Crafts | 48 Comments

Woo hoo!

Now, I know some of you wonderful bloggers out there hit this landmark post after just a few months, but me? Well, let’s just say I’ve been stopping to smell the roses a bit, so it’s taken me just a week or two shy of a year! I think it’s been about a year and a half since I happened upon my first crafter’s blog (www.loosetooth.com – Brandy’s a fellow Chicagoan), but it seems like so much longer! I can’t imagine what I’d do without y’all :o) I’ve been known to say that I treat this, along with my flickr photostream, as the World’s Biggest Refrigerator Door, a place to post my craft for everyone to see, just like a grade schooler’s wonky art projects. Thank you for visiting my blog and commenting on what you have read and seen.

Faithful readers may recall a promise or two for a crafty book post, but, well, my camera batteries were about out of juice, and I had to make a choice between the books, and…


100th post party pig

I hope you’re not too disappointed, but I just HAD to upload this smiley little guy. I know it’s a pink pig, flowered even, but I always think of all my softies as boys for some reason? Anyway, I’d have liked to give the pig away to the hundredth person who comments on this post, but I think it would take another YEAR for that many comments to accumulate here and that would make me cry!

So, friends and lurkers, leave a comment below and I will choose a RANDOM commenter on Monday to give this piggy to. And as a bonus, if by some chance we do reach 100 comments by Monday, I’ll send #100 a little something fun, too! That’s two chances to win, people! One comment per person, please! I’ll remove any multiple comments before drawing a name.

Gotta run – I have a quilt to start….er, finish for a shower this weekend. Typical. Come back Monday for the results of the giveaway(s). I’ll also post a Doll Quilt Swap One update on the new swap page: http://dollquiltswap.wordpress.com. Round two is coming in June!

Oh, and speaking of little quilts, did you notice that the Whiplash theme for May is miniature quilts? They even linked to our flickr photo pool. Hooray!

  36. Wow! What an adorable pig! Your colors are fabulous. He would look right at home in my living room on the mantel or in my kitchen in the china cupboard. I promise to send you a photo of him in his new home when i win! Hee-hee!
    I popped on over to Flickr to see your photos and you are a very talented person. It is very wonderful that your took sewing lessons at the age of nine!
    I didn’t learn to love sewing until I was 22. I took a class in junior high, but it was awful.
    But when my first baby was born and she was a girl I wanted to make cute clothes for her. I still had the sewing machine my Mom had bought me when I was 12. My darling mother-in-law helped me along the way and I sewed a dress and pinafore for my Chandra. By the time I had three children I was sewing all their summer clothes, all of Carissa’s clothes, most of Chandra’s clothes, hair scrunchies, shoe decorations, big hair bows and clothes for myself.
    Hop on over to my blog for a fat quarter giveaway!

  37. The Little Guy brought a big smile to my day. Wonderful.

    I have been enjoying the doll quilts. Post more pictures,please, they are fabulous.
