500!

This is my 500th post!
I won't get soppy but blogging has truly changed my life and let my creative side loose. (It's a little lost right now but I'm sure it'll come back).
Of course, to celebrate, there has to be a giveaway or two.

For today, I'm going to challenge you a little.
This is a little stack of 15 scraps, mostly from the store.
As far as scraps go, most of them are pretty big, at least 5" or so wide.
Scraps
READ CAREFULLY!
1. The person who can identify the most fabrics in the pile (by collection or name) wins the scraps. You will need to include the fabric manufacturer in your answer.
2. If there's a tie, I'll draw names.
3. Do NOT leave your answers as comments on this post (although you can congratulate me on my 500th post if you'd like). This will give later entries an advantage. I will delete comments with fabric names in them.
4. To enter, send me your guesses/answers via email. My email address is to the left here:
<<<<<==========================<<
5. Please put "Name that Fabric" as the subject for your email.
6. I will pick the winner on Monday August 31st.

Good luck!

Pin It!

Congratulations, Anina. 500 posts and still going strong - I'm sure that after having a luxurious break, your mojo will be back soon - a deadline or two for something always helps me :-)

Happy 500th.
Won't be sending an email. I've got no chance at naming all those luscious fabrics.

Congratulations! I always love reading your blog. However, my brain is fried and I am so bad at remembering prints and designers so no email for me! I only have so much brain power and I need to use that to find my shoes in the morning.

Eek, I could probably only name 4 or 5 of those.
Congratulations! I was just speaking to someone the other day about how blogging has really unleashed my creative monster. And I love it!

Amanda said...

Congratulations on 500 posts! I am always happy to see a new post on your blog. Great giveaway challenge - I couldn't figure them all out, but I had fun trying!

Shellie said...

materialjunkie said...

I can't wait for the next 500 posts either. I did my best and sent you an email. Luv Luv Luv your blog.

sunshine said...

Ah, you're clever with the emailing!!! I had a give-away recently that involved a challenge to be answered, and I tried to hide the comments, but that didn't work, so eventually, everyone who commented later just had the advantage of reading the other answers... next time I'll use your idea. Congrats on the 500th! And too bad the comments are closed on the organizer, I just found the post browsing through the blog, and I had hoped that wherever you live it's not midnight yet, but no such luck, someone else will be very very lucky!

Cheers,
Christine
