The cake's been eaten...

Mmmmmm, it was so good!  This here blog is three years old today!  Very exciting! (if I look a bit different in this picture, it is just the pregnancy hormones!)


At first I thought that I should buy a lovely coordinated assortment of FQs to give away, because who doesn't love fabric.  Then I thought, Jessica, are you ever coordinated??  You are a fabric hoarder!!!!  It is time to break free, and cut some of your favorites and give them away to your bloggy friends...
So here is my wicked plan... for my Blog birthday I am going to give a lucky reader friend a "Jessica, JMB Box of fun" above are some of my favorite hoarded fabrics and I will include the newest "Stitch" magazine (Because I just love it and I am actually going to make something from a pattern!) and an assortment of my most loved notions....my favorite sewing needles and the like.
What you all have to do is this...
Make a comment, preferably sweet, on this or any other blog entry this week.  You will get one entry for each comment (only one per day please.) and you will also get one more entry for mentioning my blog birthday on your own blog (isn't it great to network?)  We will pick the winner Sunday June 7th @ 7:00 pm PST.  (I will do it early so that the boys can help before they go to bed.)

I am so happy to have "met" you all and I appreciate how much "closer" we can make our great wide world through sharing our lives, our ideas, and our creativity!
Peace to you all!
JMB

Happy Birthday, from one fabric hoarder to another!
I had to laugh when you said that because I am one as well. My sister made off with a ton of selvages because I had such a large stash. What a great gift, fabric, ohhhh. There's almost nothing better (books and money lol)

Happy Blog Birthday... I hope it proves to be a good one with many wonderful comments. I have enjoyed reading your blog.

Oh, happy Blogiversary! I've been peeking in at your blog for a while, and I really enjoy it. Here's to another year!

I did such a double take when you said that about the pregnancy hormones (not that I'd forgotten you are pregnant - just yesterday CarolAnn and I had a fierce debate about how many coloured stripes the sleeper bags!) but I thought - goodness, I'm sure I didn't notice Jessica in that photo - and of course, had to scroll back and really peer. Silly you! Silly me! Happy Bloggy Birthday! And don't give away your fabric - you keep it - it's your birthday! Hey, did you ever read that Pat Hutchins picture book "It's my Birthday" - I love, it just about sums it up for me! :-) I'm so glad I found your blog a year ago - you bring sunshine to my little part of the world each time you post and I just your quilts and your marvellous sense of colour and style! Happy Birthday!!!!

Lily Boot said...

oh doubly silly me - I meant to write "Sleeper bag should have!"

BUMBLE BEANS said...

oh, ok, you all get a chance too.

Happy blog birthday! I'm excited to start this quilting bee with you!

Magpie Sue said...

How brave of you to volunteer to give away precious fabric! Every time I even think about maybe giving away some of my stash I recoil at the thought. I love every piece in there! (And I don't typically buy big pieces.) Kudos to you :- )
