I did not film my reaction when I got Sarai's lovely e-mail, and I don't really feel I can recreate it. But let me give you an idea of how it went using a different medium:
... That's roughly how it went. I did do a little dance and called my boyfriend.
Since this glorious happening calls for a celebration, I thought it was a good reason to have a giveaway! I recently got incredibly lucky at the thrift store and got 22 metres of striped cotton for an amazing price. I'll definitely use some of it but it's way too nice to use the rest for muslins... And I don't see myself wearing nothing but stripes from now on. Here is the fabric, modelled by my friend Darth Vader:
It's a lighter weight fabric, probably pure cotton or a cotton-linen blend (I burnt a piece and don't think there's anything synthetic in there). It has a slight texture and would make a nice summer dress!
I'm giving away three pieces of fabric to three lucky winners! Each piece will be three meters, enough for a dress or something else. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post by next Friday, and I'll pick the winners by Monday! You can earn extra entries by tweeting about this giveaway, or mentioning it on your own blog. Just make sure to leave a separate comment on the post linking to your post or tweet! This giveaway is open for international readers as well, I'll ship anywhere!
I'm off to do some more
