My 200th post, Moda Tutorial and a Giveaway!

I can't believe I didn't say when this giveaway would end. I will pick a winner tomorrow night and post a winner on Wednesday morning! Thanks to everyone who has entered! (3/22/10)

It's hard to believe but this is my 200th post. And what better way to celebrate than a post over at Moda. I feel like besides meeting tons of great people, Moda has been one of the neatest things to come from my blog. Who could complain about getting darling fabric, and creating something fun out of it.


Soooo........come and visit me over at Moda today where I'm doing a tutorial for this fun Spring T-Shirt. But before that scroll on down and enter my giveaway! I have to admit, this one is tough one for me. Parting with fabric is never easy, but sometimes it just has to be done!


For my giveaway the winner gets to choose one of these Layer Cakes. Each Layer Cake has
40, 10"x10" squares.

Eva - by Basic Grey




Santorini by Lila Tueller



What do you have to do?

For one entry - Leave me a comment telling me which layer cake you would like to win!

For two entries - Leave me another comment letting me know you are a follower. (Because it makes me happy when I have a new follower, I hope that doesn't sound totally conceded , but lets face it a mom of 4 that doesn't get out much gets excited over silly things.)

For three entries - Leave me another comment telling me you blogged about this on your blog.
