Score! A Bonus Giveaway!

~Both giveaways are NOW CLOSED! Stay tuned to find out the WINNERS!~

In celebration of the fact that I received over 100 pageviews today (and nearly 100 yesterday), I’m announcing a SECOND GIVEAWAY.

It’s been super exciting, watching your comments roll in for my Eclectic Bundle giveaway! As the end of today neared, I wondered if I’d break the mythical number of 100 pageviews (I’m a small blog, okay). And I did!

As a big THANK YOU to everyone, I’m offering up a second prize. My bundle is up for grabs to anybody who comments this week; this giveaway is for FOLLOWERS! All you need to do is FOLLOW me and leave me a comment telling me how you follow (via your WordPress account, by email or an RSS reader, or by Twitter). (I have internet mojo – I will know if you lie. ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) The links for all of those are over in the right sidebar – super easy to find.

Now, for what you really want to know: THE PRIZE IS FABRIC! Some of you mentioned that I ought to have included yarn and embroidery floss (and maybe some paint) in the previous one, and I thought about it, but, well, who doesn’t love fabric.

I had a dig in my (very small) stash and found these four pieces of fabric.
— A red-on-ivory toile – it’s oddly shaped but it’s about the size of a fat quarter, and it’s a very heavy fabric
— An orange-and black tiger print – fat quarter
— A bright pink tiger-y looking print – about half a yard
— and a yard of a bright hippie-ish print (see below for a better shot of it)

Don’t you just love that jaunty little birdie?

Just to clarify – comments on this post are NOT entries in the other giveaway, just to make it easier to determine a winner. To enter this giveaway, follow and comment here. To enter the other, comment on any other post on this blog.
Sorry, but both giveaways are US-only. Maybe next time, Internationals!
This giveaway will close at 6 pm PST on Friday May 25.

    Hi love! You know I love me some zebra. Maybe I can pick something to do with fabric. I have several on pinterest that I wanna try.

      ๐Ÿ™‚ There are tons of easy projects out there to get you started. Sewing is a great stress reliever for me; maybe it’ll be that way for you!

    I really don’t understand what is going on, but figured I would play ;-). I follow you on Facebook (duh!) and through google reader. I haven’t been able to get on board with the whole twitter thing… It just isn’t my bag of cookies, it would appear.

    I’m following you via email. That tiger print fabric is begging to become an actual tiger (maybe I’ll whip up a pattern for one now that you have me thinking about it!)

    I’m glad I came back to find out what the heck maille is…not only did I find out, I also get to enter this giveaway! (and I follow you on Twitter now)…and I learned how to make butter. Totally gonna try that sometime. Although I may try to `convince Hubby to take over at the “bash-against-couch” stage ๐Ÿ™‚

      Haha! You should be able to avoid hitting it on the couch if you be careful to not overfill the container. My second run at this, with like a third of the amount of cream, took WAY less time, and hardly any effort at all. This is definitely a “make in lots of small batches” thing, I think.
