Hip hip hoorah, today is my birthday.
|The Bard himself|
|The lovely John Hannah|
|And last, but by no means least, Lee Majors (the bionic man)|
I’ve reached the great age of (mumbling into hand)….42. Apparently 42 is the answer to everything, according to The Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy (or something like that, I never read/watched it). I wait with bated breath…
Anyway, I digress. Here’s a jaw dropping fact: I appear to have amassed 200+ followers since I started this blog!!! I’m both gobsmacked and delighted by this, and would just like to say a huge, gigantic thank you to each and every one of you for your support and encouragement. Your comments, suggestions and back patting have really spurred me on to bigger and better sewing. As a mark of appreciation (and because it’s my birthday), I’ve got a pretty special giveaway for you.
If you’ve been reading my blog awhile, you’ll know I’m a fan of Colette patterns. I love the vintage-inspired styling of the garments, the fact that the patterns look like little books and the idiot-proof instructions. So the prize for my giveaway is a bit of a no-brainer - a Colette pattern of your own. Yippee!
One lucky sewer will get to choose the Colette pattern of their choice from M is for Make. M is for Make stocks a great range of Colette patterns, including the two new ones: the Violet blouse and the Ginger skirt. You can browse the collection here and check out the gorgeous fabrics whilst you’re at it. Massive thanks to Kate at M is for Make for so generously supplying the winning pattern.
So, back to the giveaway…. all you have to do is be a follower of my blog and leave a comment on this post, letting me know which Colette pattern you’d choose if you won. That’s
it! The giveaway is open worldwide and closes at midnight GMT on April 30th 2011. The lucky winner will be chosen at random after this date and notified by e-mail. Good luck everybody, and have a great Easter. xx
