We have a winner!!!

Thanks everyone for entering my giveaway and for leaving such nice, nice comments! I'm glad you came back to see who won because you know I usually have a consolation prize! More on that in a minute, first our winner of the Hunky Dory set is #316 Sarah. Congratulations Sarah!! And here's what I've been doing while you've been blog surfing :) I've been playing with Poodle, Jennifer Paganelli's latest collection. Jennifer has a magical way of tying in one collection to all the previous collections so they can be mixed and matched. 
My little model was too dirty from playing in the garden to try it on so the tree had to do! I used the Candy Shoppe Twirl Skirt  pattern from Rockstar Julie! Easy to sew and a great way to use up those charm squares!

Sooooo, do you want some Poodle to play with too?? Leave a comment on this post... you know me by now, no jumping through hoops and tweet here and mention this and then add me to Facebook friends and then stand on your head and do a double twirl and come back and...blablabla...
I know you have no time for that, just leave a comment, tell me something nice and I'll pick another winner (maybe I'll have Jennifer pick a winner) on Tuesday May 25th!
Here's your prize, a fat quarter set of the WHOLE collection! See, aren't you glad you came back??

That is an amazing giveaway. Something nice? My 6 year old kept his cupcake from a function today (intact barring a little of the icing that he jst had to taste) and took it home to share with his 3 year old sister. And he was happy for her to lick the icing off too. It made my day.

Your poodle is SOOO cute! I've been trying to find money in my fabric budget for some Poodle from your shop. It would be so great to win it instead!

Simply EC said...

This is totally great of you to give all us non-winners a second chance! You're like one of those educational drama movies where the teacher takes a bunch of students that everyone else has given up on and works with them until they graduate, or become senators. Okay, well maybe its not that dramatic but it sure feels that way to me. ;-) Thanks for the second chance! Blessings!

Stormy Days said...

Wow, that fabric is wonderful, thanks for a second chance to win. I just had a customer in here who had the sweetest mix poodle with her. We are known as a dog friendly shop, so it happens, but not enough. Have a nice weekend.

Line said...

How you manage to make such colourful harmony, with fabrics which are so different, is still beyond my understanding. Do you think a fat quarter bundle would help me? ;-)
Thanks for the chance!

bellsjo said...

Wow! you are lovely - a second giveaway! What a thoughtful idea. I was back anyway for a more relaxed saunter through your blog but I could never pass up the chance to win some more fabric! Something nice is apple blossom. And cherry blossom - in fact any type of blossom!

I picked my winners of the SMS giveaway today and it totally made my da. They were both so happy which made me so happy. I wish I could do this every day!
Thank you for this chance!

Crystal said...

How sweet of you to offer another giveaway.

Something nice: my 5-year-old told me I was his favorite person this morning. To make you laugh: his brother is his 5th after Papa (my dad) and his daddy and Gran (my mom). Oh well brothers will be brothers.

Megan said...

I'm always glad to come over here! But I love the poodle skirt too! And I hope I win the FQs as well!

Amy said...

Thanks for the 2nd chance! I love the scrap bags you offer in your shop. I ordered one a few weeks ago and loved all of the fabric you sent. As I am staring at the Christmas scrap bag I feel a new addiction coming on!

Well after not winning anything on giveaway day, and having never won any giveaways ever, I told myself, "no more!" But here I am doing it again! Weeeell, this is a pretty good one so I guess it's ok. Thank you!! But we all know it's not going to be me (this is a little reverse play, cause I totally hope I win). Plus, things don't work that way anyway. Well you take care!
