I'm one!

Today is my first blogiversary!!  WOOHOO!  I made it!

One year ago today I hit "publish" on my first post...It scared the pants off of me.  I thought I was going to vomit.  (But I didn't.)  And to be honest, I still get nervous when I hit the little publish button.  But I'm getting there and it has totally been worth it!  I just adore being part of this modern-quilty-fabric-addicted-blogaliscious community!  I love hearing from y'all and I can't thank you enough for hanging out here and seeing what I'm up to!  And to show you the love, I'm having my first ever giveaway!  WHAT!?!  That's right!  Your odds of winning are pretty good right now too since this is still a little baby blog!

And now for the goodies.  First, I snatched up a green Flea Market Fancy fat quarter bundle just for you from Marmalade Fabrics.  (Because I love all things green and I love FMF.  Love.) 
I'm also sending along a package of Thangles.  If you haven't used them before, Thangles are the most delightful invention ever.  I'm not exaggerating.  (I used them to make the HSTs for my Swoon blocks and I totally fell in love.)  All you have to do is cut two strips of fabric, lay them right sides together, pin the Thangle in place, and sew on the lines.  They even have lines for you to cut on.  These papery bits of magic give you the world's more perfect HSTs with only 0.0000001 parts per million effort.  I'm pretty sure you're dying to try them, even if you don't know it yet. 
All you have to do is leave me a comment. Any comment.  Tell me something good that happened today.  Or tell me how the weather's been.  Or just say hello.  Just make sure you do it before 5pm EDT on Wednesday, yo!  (Hey, maybe you can tell me if I'm the only person to use "EDT" and "yo" in the same sentence?)  And if you're a no-reply blogger (or you're not sure), leave me an email address so I can get in touch with you when you hit it big!  Thanks again for all the love!!  Kisses!

  3. Just one? You have the poise of a much older blog but with refreshingly young good looks. :-)

    Something good: Today, I made one of the best meals I have ever made as a late Mum's Day gift for my mum and sister. Beef tenderloin, mixed greens with vinaigrette, and rosemary potato wedges with lemon garlic aioli. It was ridiculous.
