This is... My 100th Post

This week's "This Is.." from Three Buttons is a free theme, and it works out well because "This is... my 100th post" since my 'lil ole blog started in January this year. Apparently I like to chat alot. It still freaks me out that people are coming to see what I'm up to, and get all gushy when someone comments.

So for a while I've been thinking what can I do to "celebrate" having 100 semi-interesting-to-me-that-I-thought-I-should-share-things to show? How about a giveaway? I thought maybe I'd leave comments open until Midnight Sunday(August 3rd) and then pull a random comment out and send something to them. I'll leave what you get up to you, something maybe I've done before, or heck I like a challenge, if you have seen a free tutorial around for something I'll give it a go! I'll be using fabric & bits from my stash but if there are particular colors you like/dislike let me know, oh and if it's for a little one, whether it's a boy or a girl and their age/size. Be sure to leave a way for me to get back to you in your comment incase you're picked. Oh and I will ship outside Australia.

Here's a few things I've done so far to get some ideas ...

1. Ottobre Kimono Jacket 2. Bend-the-Rules Artsy Clutch 3. Habitual Kimono 4. Melly & Me Toffee Apple Bag 5. Reversible Wrap Skirt 6. Round Neck Sundress 7. Pincushion 8. Ottobre Blouse 9. Reversible Head Band 10. Polly Softie 11. Cord Dress 12. Bibs & Booties 13. Beanie 14. Amy Butler Small Portfolio 15. Bend-The-Rules Pleated Beauty Tote 16. Overalls

Thank you to everyone who has commented on my 100 posts! I read them all and occasionally get time to snoop around your blogs too.

Note: No responsibility is taken for the shoddy-craftmanship of the handmade gift you may receive. Remember I'm a newbie sewer :-).

What a nice giveaway....we get to pick! I really loved the little wrap around skirt you made you daughter. So I am thinking that would be my choice. My daughter is three and is solidly in a 3T.

Congrats!

Congratulations on 100 posts! I've been lurking about so thought i'd say 'allo. The little Japanese-style top you made (#1) is gorgeous. I love the fabric and style. And your Amy Butler folio is great too, great floral print :D
