happy 2 years and many more to come!

I'm pretty ecstatic about this giveaway because I bookmarked your poncho tutorial the other day and am excited to try it but as a non-sewer, I'm afraid I'll do a terrible job.

I enjoy your blog because you offer tutorials and how-to's. I also really like the design of your blog, clean and simple.

~Heather said...

I hope you won't limit us to one thing that keeps us coming back. The simple, uncluttered look of the blog and photos; the tutes (naturally); the voice you use to write the posts; regular posting... You've pretty much got it all down, I think.
And happy birthday! ~H

suzielarose said...

I keep your blog in my Google Reader because it brings me a smile when I look on how simple it could be to follow your lead in sewing, knitting and photography! All is missing really, is my courage to start sewing. It is such a challenge for me even a simple button. lol

I found your blog via a link to your tutorial from CRAFT. I, too, love the simplicity of your blog and it's clean lines. The projects are the draw, and the blog just reflects those beautifully simplistic ideas. I am amazed at your creativity and are excited that I have you bookmarked so I can read back through the tutorials.

Duck said...

First of all: happy birthday! (or, as we say here in Italy, BUON COMPLEANNO!).
I follow many craft blogs and I love several of them. I like yours because of the tutorials you generously share, because it's really simple, not affected at all, with an elegant and plain layout (I like gray very much), with no unnecessary frills.
So, many happy returns!
So, ma

thank you so much for letting me know about this giveaway! and congratulations on the blog birthday! not to brown-nose or anything, but i really can't think of anything that's missing or that i'd change about this blog. one of the things that i love is your photography, not only the gorgeous photos of your everyday life, but also the way your creations are photographed. but what really always has me coming back are the wonderful tutorials or even just the great ideas without tutorials that get my mind excited and working. please do keep it up, we all appreciate all the work you put into this blog! :) lisa

I am a big fan of your fabulous, clever and unique projects and have already realized some of them (hanger cover, crocheted hearts, garlands and various projects with leather and fabric squares).
And your such a talented photographer - your pictures are eye-candy.
The poncho is just gorgeous and I would love to walk around cold Switzerland with this elegant yet cozy and warming garment.
Thanks for sharing your amazing ideas and creative inspirations.
