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
