One of my friends said a good way to annoy friends and family is not to find out the gender of your baby and then go past your due date. Check and check. Perhaps Labor day will soon have new meaning to me? ;)
* * *Meanwhile, do you know what September means? It's National Sewing Month! Sadly I won't be doing all the sewing projects and giveaways I've done for the past two Septembers, but I thought it would be a good time to bring home my "babies" (guest tutorials I've done for other blogs) while I am in the process of bringing home my real baby. That will include all my tutorials for Project Run & Play. Speaking of which, Cycle 2 is starting up tomorrow and I am one of the judges for this round! There are some great designers that are going to astound us.
* * *Also, the Red Cross fundraiser of 50+ Bloggers Cookbook raised over $19,000! Fantastic job! Thank you to everyone who bought one. The winner of the dish towel giveaway in conjunction with the cookbook post is:
And Chané is offering free shipping through September on all domestic orders--use code WHATADILL at her etsy shop, What the Hart Likes, for your discount.
* * *One more thing and I'll let you get on with your day: For all your kind comments and sweet words about my Never Enough Orange Sewing Studio and on my blog in general, I'm holding a giveaway for one of my beaded ruffled cuffs I made this summer, because I appreciate my readers!
I know many blogs get comments that are less than kind, but I have received maybe 2 or 3 in my entire blogging life. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post and you will be entered! Easy Peasy. (Also, if your email isn't linked to your profile, leave that as well.)
Aqua and orange (of course ;) Sounds like I've convinced a lot of you of the goodness of orange. So, thank you, dear readers, and as soon as this baby gets here, I will choose a winner! How's that for a deadline? ;)
