.: giveaway countdown - post #200 :.

Never before has there been such an unprepared, oops-I-should-have-had-something-special-waiting-in-the-wings blog posting moment.  

My original plan had been to post the giveaway for our 200th post.  But I finished it earlier and couldn't possibly wait a few extra days.

So here we all are at post number 200, and there is just one photo to share with you.  But in all fairness, it is a photo of fabric.  

I have been trying to stick to a fabric-diet.  And I have had some success - no extra kilos of fabric have been sneaking their way into my stash for quite some time now.  But then a couple of weeks ago, I saw a couple of fat quarter stacks I needed (yes, needed) in Amanda's lovely Etsy shop, Westwood Acres - all the Lucky Penny bicycle paths and all the Martha Negley Farmington feathers.  They hit the post office box earlier this week.

And then today, I ducked into Spotlight to buy some cushion inserts.  And saw the selvedge print, and then the text prints ('Gragg rug shop', what's not to love) and the cute Japanese round-the-world print.  And I even remembered to buy the cushion inserts.

So there you have it.  Post number 200 with no fanfare but with some fabric love.  

And now - our giveaway - all the details are here - and it closes TONIGHT - midnight Australian EST.  I will not actually be awake at midnight, I just thought it sounded like a nice giveaway-finishing-off time.  Once I log off from this anti-climactic post, I will write down all the comments we have so far here on the the blog, on Facebook and on instagram (I'm @hellofromcat) and snip them into a salad bowl ... so that tomorrow morning, I only need to to add in any new comments and then, with a possibly similarly anti-climactic drum-roll carried out on the knees of my children - we will draw out the lucky winner of the very cute pincushion!!!   Please click through for all the details.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.   xoxo cat
