Winner Winner Spaghetti Dinner

Hi there,

Yes, day late but we have a winner!! Comments were tallied and a number was randomly chosen.
SO............number 206, sarahby who wrote  "OHHHH good give away. What a great blog I'll definitely be coming back. God Bless"    is our winner! 


Now, just for fun, I would like to try something. Another giveaway, just to see how many people actually are going to come back to read my blog and see who won!!
 I'm hoping it's more than like....2  :/
I'll be sad if it's like.....2
So leave a comment, tell me something nice and I'll pick another winner a week from now. You will win 8 fat quarters from my shop, YOUR CHOICE  ! Or pick 4 half yards or 2 yards, you get the idea :)
And a birthday wish for this little guy who turned 3 today, our youngest~



I love your determination
and your frustration
and your anticipation.
I love how you mix up your words, it's okay buddy, we still know what you're trying to say :)


I love your love for your big brother and sisters.
I love how my heart is squished up in your chubby fist.
You bring us SO much joy!
Happy Birthday my sweetie boy!!

I'll be back because I've become a fan and a follower!

I deleted my previous comment because I didn't wish your little guy a Happy Birthday!

So, Happy Birthday little guy!

Sarah or Semmy said...

I will be back because you have a nice readable blog. How wonderful to have a three year old full of discovery and attempts and accomplishments. Please, please take time to really enjoy him at this age and join in with his adventures as often as possible. They grow up so quickly and will never be this precious 3 years of age again. Whish him Happy Birthday and give him a bear hug for me.

Trisha said...

Happy Birthday to your three year old. I miss my kids being little. But I am luck to have a baby nephew that lives close by that I can cuddle. Cool popcorn maker!

Bea said...

I'm here. I thought your blog was really cute so I figured I'd stick around for a while.

Cheers,
Bea

That's a great idea, see who comes back for more! I should have done that with my 2nd winner, darn it! As for something nice, I lurve all of the etsy shops that actually sell FQs...sometimes a 1/2 yard is just too much, and I like the chance to get 2x as many different fabrics if I buy FQs (or spend half as much)!

~Michelle~ said...

So thanks for selling FQs!

Jennifer Ladd said...

I checked back! Thanks for the 2nd giveaway!

And happy birthday to your little guy. My daughter actually turns 3 one week from today! What a fun age, isn't it??

I'm not going anywhere, because you're in my reader! And I'd love another chance to win. :-) Happy birthday to your son - I love the age of 3!!

Keri said...

I'm back - I'm a follower now, so you can't get rid of me! hmmmmm.... something nice... My husband and I picked a name off a tree to buy a child a soccer ball. That's something I like the most about Christmas - buying kids we don't know presents!

Eleanor said...

I'm back because, thanks to your giveaway, I discovered your store, and thanks to your store, I just spent a lazy Tuesday evening lovingly folding my brand new Nicey Jane fat quarters! It's already such a joy to get new fabric in the mail, but to have it so nicely packaged and with extra little squares of fabric tossed in as a surprise? Even better!

Also, happy birthday to the kid! :D

Me? A Mom? said...

I've been a longtime reader though not a very frequent commenter. Google reader makes me lazy like that! :)

Jenny said...

Happiest of Birthdays to your sweet little boy. You are in my Reader so you can't shake me off that easy! I love reading about your shop updates...ohhh, I love when you do end of bolts and odd and ends notices! Thanks for a second chance...I really like this idea of seeing who really does come back!! You are a genius!

Katie B. said...

lisa said...

durring the big give away I skimmed a bunch of blogs. I chose five to add to my follow list. yours was one that caught my eye, and I am now a follower...so count me in for that second give away and know I will return often.

congrats on three! Beware, it's just as bad if not worse than two. My oldest is 3 1/2 and I wish I could send her off to boarding preschool =) She has some sweet moments that make up for it but ughhh!!!

Simply Sarah said...

I'm back too! It's so cool of you to have another giveaway so soon! Happy birthday to your little guy! Three is so fun...most of the time.:)

Happy birthday little guy! My oldest just turned two. The part about mixing up your words made me smile. We go through that a lot with her, but we *almost* always know what she means! So cool that you are doing another give away! Hoping to win. Would love some extra special fabric for clothes for the dollies I make.

The fabrics you choose for your shop are BEAUTIFUL! As soon as I get into my new house and am allowed to start building my stash you will be getting some of my money. Until I'm allowed to spend money on fabric again I will have to resort to hoping to win some in giveaways!

Be blessed! Merry Christmas! Have a magical season!

Your shop is really lovely -- such a great collection of fabrics!

Cindy said...

My "something nice" is a true story about a girl and a stuffed animal that she thought was lost forever. Because it is too long to post as a comment you can read it on my blog. It is worth the time and will put a smile on your face. I absolutely love the name of your blog and the play on words. I will be back for sure.
