Giveaway: 250 Followers!

Untitled
peonies are always appropriate


Update: the contest is now closed. Congratulations to isaspacey of As I Said..., I'm sending you an email!

In April I held a giveaway in honor of you all; this blog had reached 100 followers after several years of intermittent posting and a lot of neglect. I'm so pleased to be back with another one--this one for hitting 250 of you lovely readers! Thank you all so much, I'm thrilled to be a part of your bloglovin' feeds.

I started this blog in 2012, but it was only this year that I really started trying to make a go of it, posting regularly and taking semi-decent pictures (for the most part). I also did a little blog redesign and got a new name and a custom URL to match. Thanks for being there with me through several changes!

To thank all of you, I'm hosting another giveaway. It's running from today until the 21st (two weeks) and the winner will be the recipient of a mystery box filled with sewing goodies, treats, and some vintage patterns as well!

a Rafflecopter giveaway

Rafflecopter--so annoying, but I'd love to check out y'all's instagrams and blogs (if I don't follow you already) and facebook pages (if you have them) so I'll be poking around after you!

Edited to add: this giveaway is open internationally! I will mail my mystery box wherever it can go!

Finally, I wanted to say: in addition to a fancy URL, etc., etc., you may have noticed I've been adding some shopping widgets and the like. For the sake of transparency, here's a bit of my thought process: I love sewing--this will always be a sewing blog--but I'm trying to also get into the & style part of sewing & style. As this blog grows, as I hope it will, I'd rather it veer into personal style & sewing rather than into the business of sewing, with patterns and the like. You may or may not care about this, but I thought I'd let you know!

Again--thank you all so much for reading, and good luck!

xoxo,
allie

    2. Yay! I'll enter now :) my favourite non-sewing blog is The Lingerie Addict - although seeing so many expensive pretty underthings is very trying on my budget!

  9. Wow, congrats on 250 followers! I enjoy seeing your posts pop up on my Feedly :)

    I used to adore Color Me Katie but she hasn't posted in 2 years. You may still enjoy her archives though! (http://colormekatie.blogspot.com/)

    Also love Books of Adam, but he's a pretty sporadic poster (http://www.booksofadam.com/) So funny!

  11. Congratulations! Favourite non sewing blog is probably Humans of New York but sometimes it makes me cry not smile

  12. I don't really consider this a sewing blog because there is no actual sewing going on just poking fun and finding humor in vintage sewing pattern illustrations. It's hilarious and you should really check it out......http://mccallspatternbehavior.tumblr.com/

  13. I follow a lot of illustrator blogs, I think my favourite is frenchfries and waffles, a Belgium girl, I love her little stories!

  17. I would have to say Go Fug Yourself (and their TV show recaps) is the blog that makes me laugh out loud.
