100th post

April 24th, 2008

Here it is the 100th post.  It’s a nice tradition in this crafty blog world to have some sort of contest or giveaway on occasions like these.  And even though I’m crap at responding to comments, they really do push me to do more and better things.  This sewing book is a great example . A year ago I would have thought up this idea, but probably never got around to making it, and then proceed to mope around because I never do the things I say I will.  No more!  And it’s all because of you.  So the sewing book pictured above is yours (sans supplies) if you win.  Just leave a comment on this post–a joke, a recipe, a book recommendation, the name of your dog, whatever–and Monday I will pick a winner (by random).  If you’ve never left a comment before, go ahead and do so. Click on the comments and write your email in the space provided (no one can see it but me) and if you don’t have a website just leave that space blank.   There are more pictures of the book on my flickr site if you’d like to see.  

Because I’m almost up to 1000 comments (it’s at 984 right now) there will be a secret prize for the 1000th commenter! Good luck! And I’ll see you on Monday.

    I’m reading “Last Child in the Woods” by Richard Louv and it is GREAT :)

    I am officially obsessed with ticking stripe. So that case speaks to me.

    And, if you can believe it, my son is named after not one, but two dogs we have loved.

    Congrats on blog milestones!

    Well, I don’t need your cute sewing book, as my supplies are all in their homes already, but I wanted to leave a comment anyway because I never have and I love your blog!

    If I had a dog, I’d name it Slow Loris (this is an animal, not an insult!), and a good book I just finished is The Botany of Desire by Michael Pollan (he’s the guy that everyone quotes ‘Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.’ but that quote is not in this book).

    Congratulations on your 100th post. I love reading everyone’s craft blogs – there are some very talented people out there such as yourself. I am currently into sewing soft toys and have a fetish for buying Japanese craft books from eBay. We don’t have pets because my husband and I are very irresponsible on that front – ask our dead plants!

  5. Blue Castle says:

    Your sewing book rocks! Your plush toys are so neat and I wish you luck in all your endeavors. I’m glad you got some recognition! :)

    Love the sewing book and congrats on your posts. I dreamt about owning a dog last night, a little puppie called Talouse – it was a long haired sausage dog. I hope I dream about it again.

    I am new to you blog as well and I love the inspiration to keep on trucking with the crafty side of my life (much to the dismay of that unfolded laundry). Here’s a little joke we like to tell in these parts:

    Who’s there?
    Justin who?
    Justin time for a contest!

    Happy 100th!

  24. yay!

    Congrats on the 100th post – and a thousand comments? wow.

    I’m seriously impressed with the tool book – I can see that you’ve changed some things and really got into the process of making them – such a good idea!

    I have a feeling I may be delurking – surely I’ve left a comment here before? Anyways, I’ve been reading for ages – love the blog!

    Something that always makes me laugh is a friend of mine who had a goldfish when she was little. When asked what she wanted to call it, she said “Tony”.
    Such a grown up, man’s name for a wee goldfish. Love it.

    Anyways, that’s all..
