Happy New Year and a giveaway

Happy New Year! I didn't forget about you all over the Christmas holidays. I went home to England. I would have let you know that I was disappearing off, but I've read that people like to find out where you live and burgle your house if you post about a holiday on the internet. Not that anyone would find anything worth stealing in this house. My kids have made it their mission to destroy anything of value (yes, I might still be a bit bitter about the hole put in the leather armchair). Still, it's embarrassing when people break in and then don't take anything. I'm still upset about the people that decided that my bike wasn't worth stealing. If you're going to break the lock off a shed, at least take the rickety old thing for parts or something...
.
Anyway, I'm back. I'm sure I'll be boring you shortly with the few photos that I took. That will have to wait until next time, though, as I have promised you a giveaway. Yes, I have finally reached my 99th post. It's only been a couple of years since I discovered blogs and a new world opened up to me. I've learnt to sew, knit and crochet through your tutorials and links. I'm not even too sure why I started blogging, except that it might be the closest thing that I get to grown-up conversation around here some days. Surprisingly enough though, I haven't been talking to myself. So, thank you - for listening, for your support and for understanding why a grown woman might still be making homemade ornaments for her Christmas tree.
One BIG surprise from 2009 was a novice like me having a couple of my patterns appearing in print. Some of you might remember my mentioning a year ago, that my fabric dollhouse was going to appear in a book called One-Yard Wonders. The book contains 101 projects that can be made from just one yard of fabric. I have a habit of buying a yard here and there of fabric without a project in mind, just because I know that it might be perfect for a future project. Now I have a book full of things to make with those cuts of fabric. One Yard Wonders has now been published and Storey Publishing have kindly offered to give away a copy to one of the U.S. readers of my blog.
.
Here's a sneak peek at some of the projects that you can find in the book: .
And near the back you'll find my fabric dollhouse:Recognise it? It's the one that I posted about here.Ooh, that reminds me - you really should check out the flickr group. There have been some absolutely amazing fabric dollhouses made that really put my simple versions to shame, so if you want some inspiration, there's lots to be had there.
.
Back to the giveaway. I'm also going to be giving away some one yard pieces of fabric, that I, uh, bought last summer, as I greatly overestimated my blogging speed and thought that I would have reached this 99th post long, long ago. Several Robert Kaufman fabrics, a Michael Miller, a Heidi Grace and a David textiles piece, of various styles and weights, that will hopefully be perfect for a few one yard wonders of your own:
All you have to do is post a comment on this post by, um, Wednesday 20th January and then I'll draw a name at random. This blog is on blogger, so I only have access to your e-mail address if it is posted on your blogger profile, so please make sure that I'll have a way of contacting you / check back regularly. International entries are welcome for the fabric, but the book is only for U.S. entries, as Storey Publishing will be sending it.
.
I'm too jet lagged for a translation of the day, I'm afraid. Please ignore all errors and nonsense. Here's hoping that I might eventually sleep past 2am once again...

  3. Congratulations on being in print! That is so awesome! I rarely get yards since I end up loving all the patterns. I have way too many fat quarters! Way, way too many!

    beautiful fabrics!

  5. Congratulations on your 100th post! I just celebrated my 100th post as well. It was your fabric dollhouse tutorial that brought me to your blog. I am constantly buying yards of fabric here and there that I find in the sale bins at the fabric store. I use to be able to make a dress for my daughter out of a yard but she's too big for that now. Anyhow, I would love to win this. The fabric is so pretty.

  6. Welcome back! Made the little house Christmas 2008 and it is still in constant use. Looking forward to seeing your patterns in print, and seeing you here!

  10. Happy New Year! Congrats both on your 99th post and on your huge international fame. An appearance on Martha Stewart is surely only moments away :-)

    So, did you enjoy the delightfully freeeeeezing UK weather over Christmas? It's even more lovely here now - ice and snow and frost everywhere. I never post when I'm about to go away either. I've even been known to set up auto posting if I'm feeling particularly paranoid!

    I'd love to be entered into the fabric draw. I've seen your choice of fabrics before, remember, so I KNOW this is going to be a lovely prize! I wish I was eligible for the book but I'll just have to look out for it on Amazon.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I think the dollhouse is what originally brought me to your blog too. I also recently purchased the Sewing calendar page-a-day, forgetting that your pear was in it. I showed it to my husband, and said "I know her - kind of."
    I've been seeing this book a lot online. Thanks for the pictures. The book is even more tempting now! And January 21st is my birthday, so winning this giveaway would be extra exciting!

    ReplyDelete
  12. The dollhouse brought me here too and now I'm using the method to make boats and all sorts of baby mobiles and bags! Thanks so much for teaching me a wonderful skill! Who knew covering plastic could be so much fun!

    I would love the book to add to my library. I'm about 50 in line on my library hold list!

  19. I saw this book while on vacation in SF and loved it but had spent too much already. I also tend to buy one yard increments and could really use this! Here's hoping I win!

  20. I was hoping for this book for Christmas but it turns out I have to get it myself... Won't feel too sad about it though.

    I'd sure be happy to get some fabric to kick off the use of the book! Thanks for hosting such a generous give away for us! :)

  39. Good luck getting over the jet lag. I found it harder coming back to CA from England than when we went there. At least the weather is glorious, right? (I guess that presumes you live in southern CA) :o)
    We lived in Surrey for 3 years, and I admit that I miss some of the Christmas traditions that we had over there. We've brought some back with us, but unfortunately can't bring our Christmas Dinner friends with us! :-(
    I'm going to try the fabric dollhouse when I get done with all the baby projects I've got to start now that Christmas is over!
    Happy New Year!

  40. Happy New Year and congratulations on being in the book! It really is a wonderful project idea, so it deserves to be published. Would love to win these goodies, but may have to pick up the book anyway if I don't;)

  41. Good luck with jetlag, it's been 4 bad nights for us after coming back from Spain, but I think we may be past the horror.

  45. Congratulations on your blog and on your being "in print." The dollhouse is absolutely adorable. I also saw a few other great ideas in that book. So clever!

    I hope you had a great trip. It will take awhile to get over the jetlag and I feel sorry for you. That is awful! Just remember the good times that you had.

  50. Ah, I thought I recognised that doll's house! I've already bought that book - another blogger who made the kite mentioned it on her blog and then my hands forced me to order a copy. Congratulations! How lovely to have your design in print. Well done!
    How about rickety - do they say that there?!

    Blogworld is a wonderful place to be. I am continually amazed at the generosity and kindness that is all over the place... And, thanks for having a giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Happy New Year! Happy 99! Congrats on the book! It's all very exciting. And I must say I've had your fabric doll house on my to do list forever. But sewing projects still scare me a little so it takes me a while to work up the nerve to start them. Don't ask why. I'm not sure I understand myself.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Congratulations on being in print!! I love your fabric house pattern and have been meaning to make it for my daughter. Love the book and the project pics you posted!!

  56. oh my yes! please count me in! that book looks fab and congrats again on being included! hoping you had a lovely visit across the pond and i am drooling over this giveaway, so my fingers are crossed!

  58. Yay for you getting you pattern printed up in a book! I loved the little softie house and my girls play with it all the time. It was worth the time and energy, for sure. I'm looking forward to pictures and hearing about your adventures from England.

  59. This book looks amazing! I love all the projects so far.

  62. Happy New Year! Hope you had a good trip home. Congrats on the book. Fantastic fabric giveaway - makes me want to start a fabric stash to go with my yarn stash!

    ReplyDelete
  63. Congrats on your pattern making it into the book! Good job. I was really impressed with all the differing versions of the house in the flickr group. Only thing that bugged me was that some clearly had tags on, hence clearly being sold. It's a shame people take advantage of a free pattern in that way. I guess such is availability on the internet these days.
    I still love the concept and one day, when I'm a little more confident with the sewing machine, I'm def going to make one for my niece. she'd love it!

    ReplyDelete
  64. hey! tnx for thinking of us non-us-livers (?) too! =D
    i really like the dollhouse and it totaly deserves to be in a book!

    ReplyDelete
  68. You were here! But don't worry about not saying - I have the same paranoid burglar thoughts.

    Glad you made it safely back - you know what we Brits are like with 3 flakes of snow. At least the 8 inches we're sitting under makes it a bit more respectable!

    And so cool to be in a book - I'll keep my eye out for it here.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Way to go! I bet it feels fantastic to see your work in print! I actually used your doll house tut to make my Christmas for my two little girls (we're on a TIGHT budget, so it was perfect!).

    Thanks so much for the pattern...hopefully I can get a picture posted of them on your flicker group... you know when life is all together and junk. ;)

  70. How AMAZING to be in-print! I love reading your blog and seeing all of your creative ideas! I also LOVE this book! I don't own it but my good friend does and boy do I want it!! Thanks for the chance to win such lovely fabric! *keeping my fingers crossed* KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK!

  74. I have received this book from Santa Claus, and I am very happy with it. And you know what? I ordered it because I had seen that your doll house was inside! (I have already made the house with your blog tutorial and it sort of 'garanted' me of the quality of the book)
    Congratulations for the 99th post! I wish you a lot of good things and inspiration for this new year.

    Will post pictures soon of the houses.

  99. Oh wow. Congratulations on your patterns being published in the book. It looks like a lovely book, your dolls house looks amazing and look at all those bags.

    Also, how did you find England, did you visit London? Talking about thieves, I went to Paris with my husband once and a little kid stole our camera and then gave it back to us and said 'it's not worth much money, here you go'. I wasn't too sure what to make of that.

    Anyway, please post some photos of your trip over here.

  105. Welcome home! I didn't know the book was a collaboration and as I was looking through it the first time I saw your dollhouse (which I made a version of myself... thank you!) and thought "that is exactly the same pattern as the UK Lass'! What the?!" and then as I made it to the bacak of the book and the bios "oooooh, I see" :)

  118. Oh my oh my oh my oh my... I made a dollhouse for my son for xmas but I have extra cross-stitch plastic leftover and feel a few more coming on ;)

    Such a great idea and beauuuuuutiful prints there...

    Oh my.

    UK here, but much as I'd love the book I'd be happy with just the fabric!

    Keep doing what you're doing - jetlagged or not you rock.

  119. You should have said you were in the UK,you could have come to snowy Yorkshire and we could have built ANOTHER snowman :)
    Years ago a cheeky burglar broke into my car rummaged through all my tapes an didn't steal any of them - cheek !!!
    Lovely give away, I'm going to go and get my wellies ready for our trudge to school in the morning through the snow and ice now. Am I laying the pathos on thickly enough for you :)

  121. I enjoy this blog and have been trying to come up with a way to turn your fabric doll-house into a fabric Titanic or a fabric submarine for my son. A wee bit tacky...yes, but fun, nonetheless.

  143. I browsed through a copy of this book while doing my Christmas shopping. Well done for getting yourself in print. I'm an American who has spent the last 30 years living in the UK, but moved back stateside (Colorado) last year. My children are half and haaalf, and I've realised that I am too actually, after all that time. Well done for (almost) reaching 100.

  144. Hey Babe,
    Did you have fun back in Blighty? Did you get any of the fabulously cold stuff (we didn't) or not. Congratulations on your nearly 100th post! And I agree with anyone else NOT in the USA, pooh, I'd love a copy of that book too. It's been on the wish list for a while but people seem to ignore it.
    Keep sane, don't kill the kids over that hole, and hope you get some sleep soon!

  150. Today I landed on your website by coincidence and thought: That house looks like the one in the "1 yard wonders" book I have.

    And it's your project!!!

    Just wanted to congratulate you and tell you that is so cute, and I hope that you keep creating to show us make more of those nice things. :)
