Giveaway Time

>> Friday, August 28, 2009

In July, I reached 200 posts and passed my blogiversary. I intended to do a giveaway, but wasn't in a place to do it then. But I'm now ready. As I'm off in the woods of Vermont for the weekend, it seems like a good time to post the giveaway and give people a chance to enter.

The Giveaway
So what can you win? I wanted to make sure those who craft and those who admire crafts could enter and win something they would enjoy. Thus I'll give away 2 different things, fabric for the crafty types and a made-by-2hippos-scarf for everyone.

First, the fabric:

About a 1/2 yard of Aviary (not Joel Dewberry, another Aviary), at least a FQ of Michael Miller's Dazzle Daisy in green, and some other fabric goodies to be determined.

Second, the scarf:

This scarf features some Joel Dewberry (Chestnut Hill) and Michael Miller (Dazzle Daisy) fabric as well as the fun black & white print to the left and the gorgeous green and blue print in the middle. I received the latter from swaps and don't know their makers, but they're both very soft and wonderful.

To Enter:
1. Comment on this post, telling me which item you'd prefer AND tell me something else you're happy about -- your favorite song, the turn to fall, a book you've read, a friend who has visited...whatever has made you happy of late (aside from this giveaway).

2. Please make sure to leave an email address either in the comment or through a blogger account.

More Fine Print:
I will choose the winners in some random fashion at some point on Wednesday, September 2.

You may earn 1 extra entry by blogging about this giveaway (come back and let me know you've done so) and another extra entry by becoming a follower.

I think that's it. Enjoy!

Even though I'm a crafty type, I just LOVE that scarf!

What has made me happy lately? The *rain* last night in my drought-filled state.

Oh! And do I count as a follower if you are in my Google reader??? :-)

Jocelyn August 28, 2009 at 11:27 AM  

Well Happy Blogiversary! We can still celebrate :-) I am the crafty type so I'd love the fabric selection. I have really enjoyed your blog, so I will be right back!

Jocelyn August 28, 2009 at 11:29 AM  

And now I am following ;-)

Congratulations. And thank you for blogging. You share some great insights, which I always enjoy reading.

You give-away is fun and very generous. Both gifts are lovely, but if I had to pick the fabric would be my first choice.

Thanks for this opportunity! I like the fabrics :)
And what is always makes me happy - to watch "Pride and prejudice" by BBC... it is a fantastic film and novel.

Oh my gosh, I'm terrible at decisions....the fabric is lovely, but the scarf is way cool too! If you force me, I guess I'm in it for the fabric....congrats on 200th post! Laura

QuilterLaura August 28, 2009 at 12:22 PM  

Oh, I forgot....something that makes me happy....hearing about my son's success at college. I do nothing but worry but he is awesome and turning into a wonderful young man. That makes me happy.

Grace August 28, 2009 at 12:26 PM  

I guess I'm crafty so should take the fabric. But that scarf is so beautiful. Can I just say scarf please?

Happiness? Slightly cooler days and nights. Two musical children in my house singing and one playing mandolin. Several full nights sleep. Cauliflower casserole I made up. I could on...

Thanks and happy blogging. Glad I found your blog--

Grace August 28, 2009 at 12:27 PM  

Oh, like the Woodland School, you are in my google reader - does that count?


Unknown August 28, 2009 at 4:32 PM  

Please count me in the draw, things that make me happy are having all my grownup children home for dinner with their partners tonite. We will have 11 to sit down with for dinner tonite.

I would love to win the fabric ...its lovely. What makes me happy lately is that my wrist has finally stopped aching from when I broke it a month ago. I had a day where I didnt have to take pain killers Yay!! But other than that there is a lot of things that make me happy, like all things natural :)

EB August 28, 2009 at 4:46 PM  

That scraft is lovely! But I'm building my fabric stash for my next project so I'll go for fabrics.

I am so happy that my little one is turning 1 in a couple of weeks and I finished his quilt =) It's the first one I've finished too.

Thanks for the giveaway and congratulations!

Figuring out the tension on my sewing machine. :)

I'd like to enter for the fabric please.

Margaret August 29, 2009 at 12:22 AM  

I love the fabrics, although the scarf is awfully nice too ... I'm happy about the entertaining little kid kicking away in my belly, and about working on teeny little knitting projects for him.

Micki August 29, 2009 at 4:42 AM  

Happy anniversary! I love the fabric...always love that.LOL What makes me happy...being with my husband who is my soulmate.
Thanks for a great giveaway!

What is making me happy at the moment? FINISHING projects - what a satisfying feeling! I wonder why I didn't discover it sooner :-)

I'd love the fabric! Thanks x

Anonymous August 29, 2009 at 2:46 PM  

I would love the fabric. Right now, my new couch and coffee table are making me happy. I just got them this morning!

Liba August 31, 2009 at 8:48 PM  

I would love the scarf. While I have every aspiration to one day be crafty, for now I like to look like I know people who are... I have been made happy by a warm welcome in a new city.

Congratulations on 200 posts and the bloggiversary. Since I haven't had the chance to add to my stash, I would pick the fabric, but the scarf is so unusual. Right now what makes me happy is that the weather in August has been between 50 degrees at night and low 80's during the day. We don't do air conditioning and this has been such a blessing, I was dreading this month but it has been so nice after all. Thanks for the chance!!!!!

Ginny September 2, 2009 at 12:41 AM  

I'd love to win the scarf! Let's see something that makes me happy. Well hubby just had a bad accident, so I'm happy that he is alive :)
