I would pick a pouch, pink, and the really old books by McClun and Nownes that I have looked through a million times since I was a kid. :) You are making amazing progress on your list -- I LOVE that chevron quilt!

I prefer a pouch and my favourite colour right now is orange. Book....must be something in swedish. I have a book about old swedish quilts, that is pretty interesting to read. I don´t know if there is an english version out.

I'd say a pouch, and in hot pink! And books? I haven't read any quilty books recently, but I've been reading through Dorothy Sayers Lord Peter Wimsey series, and I'm thoroughly enjoying it! :)

I love your PTS pillow. Holy amazingness! Like, I want to find it and steal it for myself! :)

Adrianne said...

Wow, you're doing so well on your projects. I love everything you made, but especially the pillow and the grey, aqua and yellow baby quilt. Definitely will be taking inspiration from this for the couple of baby quilts I need to make in the next couple of months.

Thanks for your giveaway - I would have to pick a pouch, and my favourite colour is yellow. I recently read State of Wonder by Ann Patchett, and really enjoyed it.

Looks like you finished most of your little projects and it is on to quilts! Good luck with your hustling. Secondly - congrats on your 100th post! Very exciting. I would have thought you were an old hat at blogging because it seems you have such an established blogging voice and blog.
Lastly thanks for the giveaway! I love pouches because I can put all my crap in them. Favorite color - eeek I don't know these days. Blues? And good recent read- Life of Pi, good older read - In the heart of the sea by nathaniel philbrick.

cheers marika!

If I win, you can make me whatever handmade thing you'd like. You have great taste, so I have no doubt it would be great.
My favourite colour changes... but I'd say purple is a pretty stable one for me.
I read Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand and loved it. Then I read Seabiscuit, and it was much much better than the movie.

Thanks for the chance to win!

Congratulations on your 100th post and great job for staying on task amd getting your things finished. My girlfriend and I are starting our lists in January, going to keep each other accountable, hehe. I'd love something handmade from you, how sweet. I'd love a pouch or you said to suggest something small. How about a pin cushion or a needlecase/book?? Drawing a blank on what they are called. Favorite colors? Purples, blues, yellow, pink, heck I guess just about them all. I'm currently reading a Danielle Steel book, Echoes.

Thank you for an awesome giveaway and a chance to win.
