Celebrating SimpleSew's blogaversary!!

HI again! First i must say I am late!. I should have had this picture up 2 days ago, but with family coming into town (earlier than expected) and us not being ready for them kinda put other things on the back burner for us. We have spent the last two days remodeling/redecorating my son's room for them to stay here. We don't know how long they will be here, but it should be comfortable for them while they are here! Also, i had my photo taken, blog written out about the blogaversary, and had it all ready to go but it didn't work!!! So I come in here this morning to all the happenings and the business going on and....nothing. It wasn't even there! Great job, Google. So i am so very sorry I am a little late it is. The handmade prize I am offering up as part of Simplesew's Blogaversary:
i apologize its not the best picture in the world, but my little klepto girl has taken my adapter for my disk from my camera and i can't find it. Anyhow, this pincushion is made with Flutter by The Quilted Fish for Riley Blake Designs. It includes a broach filled with emery powder to sharpen your needles and pins and mounted on a candlestick. A perfect addition to your sewing room or pincushion collection. To win this, all you have to do is become a follower of my blog, and leave a comment telling me what your favorite thing to sew is, and what colors are your favorite! I will choose a winner based on your comments. Sorry I am not using a random generator, still new to this and I will get it sooner than never. Have fun with the Blogaversary and good luck winning!! Erica

SimpleSew's Giveaway Winner Is.........


Here is what Caren had to say:

Hi Erica! Until three days ago I stayed at home with my two toddlers - kudos to you for getting some "mommy time" in! I know it can be hard to balance everything (and also hard to not try to do every cool thing you see in bloggy land - there are so many creative people out there!!!). Hopefully your kiddies will pick up some creative inspiration from you. My little peeps love buttons, fabric, pins and needles, etc. My six year old keeps bugging me to let him sew on the machine. (I taught him to iron at age 4, and he loves to sew). I am working fulltime now, but if you want to take a look at some of the things I've done with my kids you can visit my blog.

Caren, if you could please email me at so I can get your address to pass on to Shirley for your beautiful charm pack!

I wish I could have chosen all of you, but Shirley at SimpleSew only had one to give. I appreciate each and every one of you for stopping by and being my newest followers. I went from having only 4 to I think 20 now! I am excited to be able to share my sewing/crafting/mommy adventures with each and every one of you, and if you just give me a day or 2, I will visit each of your blogs and follow you as well. Stay tuned because I am part of SimpleSew's Blogaversary giveaway and I will upload photo later today of the handmade giveaway prize!

Again, thank you to all of you!

Happy Sewing!!
