You're Invited....

mmmm, Cake

..to my one year blog party. Hope you like cake. Wow! 365 days of blogging has gone by really really fast. Is it too obvious for me to give something away? Hmmm. Nahhh. Let's do it pals! I made a bunch of fabric cake domes in the spring. Don't ask. It was really fun tinkering till I got a good pattern figured out which required using the pi formula. But back to cake.

Have your cake

I wanna give you this little cake dome. Well, at least one of you! Mmmm, don't eat it! Cover up a pin cushion with it or let your little ones practice birthday parties with it. Somehow one little cake doesn't seem like enough...

And Sew it Too

So how about a 10-layer cake of of rich autumn goodness made from the finest Bohemian and Chocolate Lollipop ingredients?? Sound good? Now you can have your cake and sew one too. Just leave a comment and I will pick a winner at random to announce on Monday morning. I do think that I will employ my husband's statistical computer know-how to arrive at the randomly chosen winner. He's really good at random stuff. My previous method was slightly taxing, yet fun. My current workload doesn't have enough room for that much fun.

How much is that fabric in the window?

I've said it before, but I want to say again how much I appreciate your interest, encouragement and enthusiasm for what I manage to share with you. I am continually inspired by your support and never dreamed how much I would gain from just putting out a few photos and words about my days. Staring down the hallway of the coming year, I'm looking at lots of enticing things hanging on the walls. A few of them need to be straightened and others need some well-thought-out arranging. But there's also this little window in the hallway that will certainly get a new display every few days. Thanks for taking a peek inside my window. I love it here.
with thanks, Anna

  6. Oooo, pick me, pick me! We love pretend food at our house and I need some new chocolate lollipop stash. :) My husband loved the counting crows story by the way. Totally cracked us up, Navigating the beginnings of this, with a newly minted first grader and a pre-K'er, is totally baffling. Your episode reminded me that we need to take it all with a sense of humor!

  68. Hi - I'm a semi-lurker and I'm sorry it has taken a giveaway to pull me out of the shadows (although I think I have commented before honest!). I put a stat counter on my blog a week ago and was stunned by the huge number of lurkers there must be who never leave a comment so I'm sorry to be one here sometimes! Happy blog-birthday I hope you enjoy your party!!! I love your colours - well out of my normal comfort zone but such fun and very inspiring! Lucy x

  77. Happy blogiversary, Anna Maria! You inspire me and give me such a bad case of fabric-lust. I admired your work so much that just a few weeks ago I taught myself to machine sew, just so I would have a good excuse to purchase beautiful, colorful fabric. I cannot wait to see what you come up with next!

    ReplyDelete
  78. Happy Happy Day! Fun stuff!

    I'm laughing that you had to use pi to get cake ... ba dum dum. ;) The cakes give "yummy fabric" a whole new meaning.

I was *just* about to cut into my Chocolate Lollipop fabrics this morning for the first time, but I was interrupted by preschool pickup time.

I am not generally lucky in these things, but if I do win, I can add another couple of colorful panels to the skirt I was going to make :-)

  142. Hi Anna,
    Congratulations on your anniversary. Hopefully you will have time to keep it going � it is one of my favorites. I am not sure if anyone has mentioned it (I didn�t have time to read all 127 comments before mine) but, there are several sites out there that offer random number generators. Here is one I used. Make sure to select no repeats. I just collected the names from my e-mail and pasted them into Excel and gave each a number, so I didn�t have to count them all. I did have near as many, so this might really help you. Anyway, thanks again for taking the time to share your beautiful family and amazing creations with us.
    Heather
