Post number 1800 and the Postponed 10 year Blogiversary Celebration
That's, like, a book or something...
But it's been a fuzz over ten years.
I wanted to do a big 'reader appreciation' giveaway back in November, when the actual ten year blogiversary happened, but we were up to our endurance limit with a home remodel that had half the house barricaded and under construction, and the other half crammed jammed to the nearly non-navigable point with the contents of the rooms being rebuilt. I couldn't even begin to think about pulling stuff out of the stashes at that state...and the celebration got postponed. Somehow I thought it would be good to put it at the 1800 post mark.
I will admit, it took me longer to reach the 1800 posts than I thought it would, but that gave me time to pull some goodies to send along.
I'm not going to detail them...but I'll say that each box has fabric w/ one of five different fibers (silk, linen, rayon, cotton and wool -- all wovens) a suitable pattern for the fabric and a book from the bookshelf.
Because I have more fabric and more patterns than I can expect to ever sew my way through, and more books than I have time to appreciate, and something like 200 followers that I know of who have read the blog, commented on the blog, encouraged me, corrected me, and bailed me out over the past ten years. Some of you I've met in real life; some are facebook friends, and some have enabled my fabric and stash accumulation.
So it's time for a little payback love for folks who have hung with me in the past few years.
Here's the deal: you have to be a follower of the blog. Somewhere, somehow.
But I'm going to take your word for it...because I probably can't go check everywhere and make sure.
So...to enter the giveaway:
1) Leave a comment ON THIS POST. In the past, I've pulled comments from all posts in the allotted time frame, but for this one, I'm just pulling off of this post. Easier to keep track of. ;-)
2) In the comment, leave your name, how you follow the blog, how long you've been following the blog, and whether you look best in blue, pink or olive green. :-)
3) If you feel motivated to comment on today's post but your fabric and pattern stashes are at the explosion point and you don't want to be included in the giveaway, just say so. You don't have to enter to comment...but you have to comment to enter. :-)
4) I'll do a random drawing in a week to pick the folks who will get the goodies.
And thanks to EVERYONE for your support of Sew Random through the years!
