Item the first: Have you entered the pattern giveaway from Violette Field Threads? Go do so now. And I neglected to include in that post a very awesome news nugget: you can save 15% on your purchase from Violette Field's shop with coupon code Matilda! Excellent, right? (Right!)
Item the second: You know how I stink at doing the teaser posts where you get a sneaky peeky at something I'm working on? (If you didn't know, just pretend I didn't say anything. I'm totally awesome at it. If there were a teaser post award, it would be sparkling on my trophy shelf right now, and I would have thanked you in my acceptance speech.) Maybe you don't even want me to try and tantalize you with works in progress . . . well, you're gonna have to deal with it, people, because I can't pump out a new project every day of the week, and how boring would this blog be if you only get, like, one new blog post each month with the one thing I've made? No one wants that.
So I'm flexing my teasing muscles (which are rather out of practice from not living in the same state as my little sister for such a long time) and letting you peek at this:
Are you tantalized? Intrigued? Captivated? Enticed? (High five, thesaurus.com!)
You think I've got this teaser post thing down, dontcha? Little do you know, this project has been finished for weeks and I've just been too lazy to take pictures since these in-progress ones that I snapped last month. But let's go with the first one and chalk it up to improvement.
