We're "fashionably late" (as usual) ........for the BIG GIVEAWAY !!!












Good afternoon Blogland Neighborhood! Here at MBIAJ we pride ourselves in our consistancey of always being a day late and a dollar short ...... or as we like to say ......"Fashionably Late" dahhhhlings.....So, in keeping with our image, we are now sliding in at pretty much the last minute to join the big ..... and we mean BIG SEWN blog party GIVEWAY !! ....and, in case you're as "fashionably late" and without a clue as we are, "SEWN" is a new website being started by Sarah Fielke (that creative and crafty Aussie gal).

So.....the MBIAJ Sewing and Design Dept , not wanting to be left out of the party that will launch the new website on June 8th, is busy putting together a blog party giveaway prize ..... all you have to do is leave a comment on this post (or the next one that we'll post of the finished project/prize) ...... the winner will be announced on June 8th .......OK, well, better go check on the Sewing and Design Dept to see how they're doing .....









......oh for PETE'S SAKE !!!! KITTY!!! WHAT ARE YOU DOING ?!?!?!!!! How did you get all tangled up in the measuring tape??? Just what we need .... another delay .....as if we're not running late enough!!










......(ok, so now she's zooming off in a snit....) KITTY!! KITTY! COME BACK HERE WITH THAT MEASURING TAPE !!!!!

GOTTA GO !!! Be back soon! (don't forget to leave a comment to be entered into the giveaway..... we'll post a picture of the prize as soon as we get that dang measuring tape back from Kitty and finish sewing the prize!)

Toodles,
Mary Anne (aka Mare)

Party and presents, don't you just love them. (It better late than never - I was also late (Sandy). I would love to win anything that you make as a prize... I love surprises... Thanks for your giveaway...

Anya said...

Can't wait to see what you come up with. Thanks for the chance. BTW -- I love the flower garland in the previous post.

Quiltersal said...

Oh, my....that fabric sure does look yummy! Whatever you're making - I'm sure it will be just lovely! Put me in the hat for the prize!

Nancy said...

Kitty better watch out!! Those pins can be sharp and it looks like she is running right over them. Tell her it isn't fun to have a sewing needle stuck in your toe and have emergency surgery. Ask me how I know??!!

Interested in that fabric. Wonder what it will become...

Ruby said...

Cute fabric! Didn't know there was a party going on.
Thanks for the heads up!

Jeannie said...

That Ms. Kitty! Just imagine what would happen if you got one of those lazy susan type cutting boards. Kitty would be pretending it was the Indy 500! Have a great week. Cheers.

Bowlby said...

You're too funny! I'd love to win whatever you come up with.
