500th(-ish) Post Give-Away!

Well, okay, this is really only my 499th post. But I didn't want to mess up my "Talk Back Thursday" post for tomorrow. Hopefully no one objects to me jumping the gun just a little bit... ;)


Normally, I give away a Kiva gift certificate in honor of each of my n-hundredth posts, but I am so excited about having one of my tips included in the new PatternReview.com book, I decided to give away FIVE (5) copies of this book in honor of my (upcoming) 500th post!



The fact that, as a "co-author" I was able to purchase the books at 50% off, didn't hurt either! ;)


So, if you would like a copy of this book, including the amazing tip #489 on page 70, just leave me a comment. I'll accept entries until midnight EST next Tuesday and I'll announce the FIVE (5) (randomly selected) winners in next Wednesday's post. Good luck to everyone!

Congratulations and I love your blog. I'm very, very new to both blogging and sewing. I'm inspired by others, but feel that my sewing is not quite up to the standards that I read about daily. I believe that this book would be a great help to me. Please, please pick me. It would mean the world to me.
