Happy Easter Sunday everyone!
One year ago today I started this blog and my, doesn't time fly when you're having fun?!? My most favourite thing about it is being welcomed into the generous blogging community. I follow so many blogs that are a daily source of inspiration and that are written by wonderful people who readily share top tips, advice and priceless tutorials. In fact, I've probably learnt more from these bloggers than I have from any of my informal sewing courses!
The most overwhelming thing for me is that I have followers, a grand total of 90 in fact. I can't believe that this many people tune in to see what I've been up to and actually take the time to leave encouraging and insightful comments. I may not have made as much progress in a year as I'd like to, but I'm learning so much and enjoying every minute. Your comments keep me going through this journey and I appreciate them more than I can express in words.
To celebrate my first blogiversary and to thank you dear readers, I have a giveaway for two lovely followers.
First up is a 1940s themed giveaway: Simplicity 4787 in a size 16 (bust 34, waist 28, hip 37), coupled with a 56 inch x 35 inch piece of 1940s-inspired floral cotton.
Secondly a 1960s themed giveaway: McCall's 7196 in a Large 15-16-18 (bust 35-38, waist 27-30, hip 37-40), coupled with a 44 inch x 32 inch piece of 60s-esque Amy Butler cotton.
To enter you just need to be a follower of my blog and entries from all countries are welcome. Leave a comment to let me know which of the two giveaways you would like to be entered for or if you would like to try for both, by Monday 2 May, and I will announce the two winners on Tuesday 3 May. Good luck!!!
Thank you all once again for making my first year of blogging and sewing such a blast!
