Giveaway 101

I guess technically my milestone post has already passed. I hit 100 posts with my antique spools.

And I'm not really sure who considers 100 posts a milestone except that it just gives you something else to write about.

Some people might hit 100 posts after a couple of months. Depends on how much they have to say.

I'll use post number 101 as an excuse for a giveaway. I loved sewing and giving away the bag dispensers so long ago. I tried to think of something useful and possibly attractive to all readers. But no such thing exists. So I just picked something I like and something that I could give to my mom or my sister if no one else wants to participate!

If you wash dishes you might be interested in this. It's a dishtowel used to catch drips after handwashing or removing items from the dishwasher. It has terrycloth on the underside and is a lot cuter than an old kitchen towel hanging out on your counter.

It's not my design, I got the idea from Darby, and tweaked it a little to fit my needs and my counter.

I've got lots of fabric, here's another look at a few samples:

I'm sure I can come up with something that suits you (or someone you would like to gift this to).

To enter the giveaway, leave a comment. I don't need anything fancy, a "hi" will qualify you. If you are a follower of the blog, I'll enter your name twice. If you become a follower I'll enter you twice as well. Just let me know if you are. Let me know who you are if you are anonymous!!

I'll pick a winner at random on Wednesday night (2/24).

I hope you win!

  1. I like it and I think 100 is a milestone. I have given 100 pints of blood to the Red Cross and I thought that was a milestone. I could give the prize to mom! Love, Dad

  3. I just became a follower of your blog and would love a chance to win. I actually bought something similar to this at Bed Bath and Beyond but it was UGLY, and it had disappeared from my kitchen. We have looked and looked for it, would love to replace with a prettier one:) I also live in The Dash:)

  15. Hey Katherine, It's Sara Bobo. I love the dish mat. My mom and dad just came to see me (well not really me but their granddaughter)and brought me a very old singer sewing machine. I told my mom I wanted to learn to sew. I really have no idea what I am doing, or even if this machine works, mom never used it. I thought making a dish mat might be an easier project to start on. By the way - your kids are just adorable!!

  23. I know that I'm too late to post something, but I wanted you to know that I started reading this blog four hours ago and have gone through (almost) every one of your postings. I have even followed the links that you have put in your postings (thus, how long it has taken me to get this far) and I've enjoyed every minute!
