Three Years, Thank You Very Much (yes, it's a giveaway)

Approximately 3 years and 200 posts ago, this little blog was born.  I'd started sewing again after a break of half a lifetime, and sewing was soothing my brain from work stresses and small children busyness.  Searching for sewing help online I'd stumbled across an amazing world of blogger sewists that I desperately wanted to be a part of.  I'm so glad I jumped in.

To thank you for inspiring me, reading, commenting, replying, encouraging - just generally being fantastic - I'd like give you a little something from my stash.  My stash is big, but not big enough to share with everyone, so instead there'll be 3 somethings for one of you.  I hope that sounds good :).

So - do you fancy stripes, or dots - or plaid?

1, 2, 3:
   4, 5, 6:

Flowers or swirls?

   7, 8, 9:

   10, 11:

Pinks or blacks?

    12, 13, 14:

   15, 16, 17:

Greens or blues?

   18, 19, 20:



    22, 23, 24:

   25, 26, 27:

Pick up to 3 fabrics you'd like, and I'll send them to you anywhere in the world, for up to $30AU in postage. If you live very far away, check this guide to international postage from Australia - and maybe pick light fabrics :). The heaviest of the fabrics above are 1, 4, 12 and 15.

Entry is open to all followers of this blog.

To enter leave a comment, telling me:

  • how you follow this blog
  • which three pieces of fabric you'd like
  • your email address

Thank you again and good luck!

  8. HI Gabrielle. Congratulations on reaching three years! I follow your blog through feedly since the demise of google reader. It's okay but I haven't been bothered to learn how to use it properly! As to fabrics, I'd love 25, 26, 27 the coordinating quilting cottons. I think I would use them for my daughter's Christmas dress.

  9. Well done on 3 great years of your blog! I'm so glad I ran across you and your blog during me made may! Who'd have thought that you actually used to live with my sis! Anyway, I follow with bloglovin and I love the spotty fabrics and the light blue denim.. You are seriously generous! xx

  13. Happy 3rd blogiversary!!! I certainly don't need any more fabric so don't count me in your giveaway (don't get me wrong, your fabrics are gorgeous!) but I just wanted to say I've thoroughly enjoyed reading your posts since I stumbled across your little corner on the interwebs. Here's to sewing!
