Dear friends,
Today is the first birthday of our blog!

For a year now, we 've been posting our ideas and experiences about, in and around our craft projects. We've been showing not only the products of our creative sewing, knitting, illustration and design efforts, but also the context that sparkles the inspiration : our homes. families, fancies and interests, activities and events. Sometimes we've also shown you our hearts, often a lot of our laughs and maybe a little tear here and there. It's been a fabulous experience so far, sharing all (well, most) that we create!
So what we really wanna celebrate is you, our readers , our friends!
You've all been so supportive and interested and responsive. Your input gives our creative endeavors/whims a sense of perspective and appreciation. You often have very inspiring craft-blogs yourselves and it's so nice to find some 'soft cushioning' as in feed-back and suggestions in this crafty blog-community that you constitute. Oh, thanks thanks all you-dears out there!!!

So, what's a celebration without a big surprise and looooots of presents? We have decided to give away some feasty things!

If you leave a comment on this post, you might have a chance (surprise!) to win a present :

-from my (Lies) sewing basket, for your baby or toddler (your child, grand-child, niece or nephew, best friends little one,...) :

a 'little pocket' dress for a toddler girl (between 1 and 2 yrs)

a reversible fruity pinnie for a newborn girl (till about 6 months)

a unisex toddler sunhat

a set of 3 unisex baby bibs

-from Kimberlee's artist folder :

a 6 pack of bird cards

a collage 4 pack of sea cards, like these

Next Monday Lieveke will draw names out of a tacky pink cowgirl hat (but she loves it, what can you do and what is tacky anyway...), if you want a specific item (for ex. you want a baby pinnie cause a toddler dress would just look too silly on your newborn! Or : you prefer unisex items cause your boy would look a bit too avant-garde in a dress), please specify in your comment.

Oh, as promised, I did an Etsy update : there are new pretty things for babies and todds, such as this new design, a tulip dress in Japanese stylised 'sugarcane stripes'.

And really, thank you all
X Lies

wow, a year! I regularly check in on this blog and get inspired, so thank YOU for a great year of posts. i really like your fabrics - my baby girl is a little too small yet for her wrap around dress (etsy) so i have it hung on the wall to admire. hmmm, on that note i've got my fingers crossed for the pocket dress!

Happy Birthday Anemone! Hope your next year of crafting and blogging is a great one.

My kids are a bit bigger than toddlers so if I won a prize I'd like the cards.

Happy blog birthday! I love reading your blog.
The little dresses are so cute, and you have great taste in fabrics~! The toddler sunhats look great, and just what we need.. but they probably wouldn't fit my 3.5 year old, unless you can make them bigger?
Look forward to reading more posts!
