thank god it's sur-priiiiiiiiize day


a surefire way to break my mysterious promise of a surprise is, indeed, to promise a post about a surprise!  sorry to be late to my own party, but i've been racking my brain (still currently on strike) trying to come up with a proper tangible thank you, which is most definitely in order after all of the Ass Shaking Booty Stomping Project Sewn hollering going on around these parts.

my first thought was to share some of the prize booty with ya... but then, in a late night attempt to lure Brain back into creativity, my eyes wandered to the brocade section of mood fabrics online.  those mischievous peepers, they like to linger there.  this luscious lurex was hammered into the dress that got me through the pink challenge: an alien party frock that turned out to be a popular vote favorite. 

(whoopsies, brain freeze, the fact that i just typed "popular vote favorite" made the introverted shy teenage girl in me bark i'msorryWHATdidyoujustsayYOUCAN'TJUSTTYPETHAT)

AHEM.  PIPE DOWN GIRLIE.  it made y'all giggle, and i likes gigglin', so i thought it only appropriate to share the shiny pink cackling!  and, should my older, wiser, more extroverted kalkatroonaan ways terrify you, you could always go with the slightly more demure red & cobalt blue "right" side of this fabric.


now, i wish i could thank each and every one of you with some'a'this, but well.  my million dollar check, she has not cleared just yet.  something about proper identification.  so, for one of you loverly peeps, i grabbed 2 yards of this extra wide 58" deliciousness (really this fabric is the bomb diggety) and i'll trace out the burda magazine zippered top pattern i used to make the dress (petite sizes 17-21) or this shawl top, which would show off the double sided nature ever so nicely (regular sizes 34-42).  AND you'll probably get some other craziness too, because I LIKE YOU.  a LOT.  you guys make me happy.

(speaking of happy, may i just say i chortled, guffawed, giggled, and smiled big 'n wide over every single peep who peeped on my last post?  THANK YOU.  i haven't had the time to go OCD over the comments as i am wont to do, and truly i didn't want to seem disingenuous by typing thank ya repeatedly, but, for reals... thank ya.   MOST REPEATEDLY.)

to enter just leave a comment on this post (oh let's say, about your favorite vice).  and mais oui, you can be anywhere in the world!

UPDATE: YOUR VICES ARE BECOMING MY VICES.  HOLY COW.  i bought a bag of cheddar cheese popcorn yesterday and 8 dark chocolate bars.  for the good of my health, i'll close the comments this sunday march 16 and announce a winner monday!  

updated updateroo: okay, comments are now closed....winner announced tomorrow!

  1. My favorite vice? Why that would be sewing in as litllte an amount of clothing the temperature of my sewing room can stand, and preferably with a good Chardonnay on standby.... Or chocolate, depends on the time of the month :)

  2. That fabric is killer! My favourite vice is raiding our chocolate shelf first thing in the morning (even before brushing teeth). Its also the last thing i do before i go to bed. But at least I managed to ban myself from eating chocolates while sewing. Fabric doesn't likes choc spots. :/

    ReplyDelete
  3. My favorite vice is eating nutella with a spoon after a run and convincing myself that running makes it healthy. That and silk satin. Congratulations on your win!

  4. Vices? Plenty! But my favourite online vice is you :)

  5. 'Ooona!!!' squealed me with delight. The chance to sew a twinnie outfit hasn't had me this excited since grade eight sewing when my bestie and me made matching gingham smocks. Yeppers, smocks...It's official. I'm ancient. Hmmmm, my favourite vice? I'm trying not to say eating nachos while watching reality TV...oops, I said it. Does that me wicked, LOL? xo

    ReplyDelete
  6. Favorite vice? Spending so much time planning projects that I end up with no time to sew them, or whiskey. Being from Scotland I'll go with whiskey.

    ReplyDelete
  7. oh man. i feel like it's too easy to call sewing related things my favorite vice. but they're the only ones i'm willing to admit on the internet at the moment, so i'll have to say stashing. i call it stashing because i only think it's hoarding if it's gross and messy and all my craft and sewing supplies are neatly organized thank you very much and i don't have a problem even if my loved ones tell me i do!

    ReplyDelete
  8. I think mine would have to be tasty red wine. Oh and SHOES. All shoes, but I do love me high heels, which I don't wear some much these days working from home... but I do still have a nice little collection ;)

    ReplyDelete
  9. Shoes, handbags, cocktails, gin and Gerard butler. Oh I could go on, but those are just a few...great giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Aww this is so sweet, Oona! Hmm, favorite vice...does the fact that I just ate half the Nutella jar on my day off count?

    ReplyDelete
  11. my favorite vice is bogo ice cream sundaes at baskin robbins EVERY wednesday.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Ice cream.....mmm ice cream. I was told by my health visitor that its the best thing to eat while nursing - full of calcium and calories, I cling on to this professional advice and have a bowlful every day! So I guess that means its not really a vice is it?!! So in that case definitely buying too much pretty fabric. Is there such a thing as too much pretty fabric?!!!
    Congrats on winning ;)

    ReplyDelete
  13. Favorite vice: drinking while I sew. Which seems to be a popular vice so far!

  14. Ooooooooona!
    I was rooting for you every week of Project Sewn and was so delighted that you won (even though I knew you would because you’re just so fabulous that the universe surely couldn’t have allowed any other outcome!). Oh, and my boyfriend agreed on my voting for you. He does appreciate a healthy dose of crazy!
    As for my favourite vice … hmmm … perhaps staying up all night reading sewing blogs when I need to get up in the morning, and then toppling rather than stepping out of bed? I’m so virtuous I can’t even think of anything else, ha!

    ReplyDelete
  15. A big, juicy, slice of vegan chocolate cake... or two, or three slices...

    ReplyDelete
  16. Favorite vice might be the seasonal Reese's peanut butter cups. I have the Easter egg shaped pack in my secret chocolate cupboard hidden from the kids. Beautiful fabric!

    ReplyDelete
  17. My favorite vice is definitely fabric purchasing. I have such a substanial stash that I took over my largest bedroom and made it the sewing room and purchased shelves to stack all the fabric on and I still need more plus another room. There are containers in my basement that house other fabrics as well and I still want more. What can I say?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Oona, long time lurker here, I love your bright cheery attitude which reflects in your clothing. If I had to say my favorite vice it would be buying shoes, specifically boots that fit my wide calf's, second favorite vice is buying fabric.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Oh my word, I love this fabric and both patterns! My favorite vice is definitely candy. Particularly, the Nerds Bumpy Jelly Beans that are ONLY sold during the run-up to Easter. I don't want to admit how many bags I've gone through in less than a month....or how many I'll buy when the Easter candy goes on clearance. Btw, super congrats on winning Project Sewn! I was completely blown away by your projects!

    ReplyDelete
  20. My favourite vice? Drinking in charge of agricultural equipment.

    I kid.

    I think my new favourite vice has to be sewing! I have a secret stash of fabrics my husband doesn't know about, and I have maybe perhaps been known to sneak away from work early when there's nothing demanding going on to come home and play with fabric and patterns. This shit is seriously addictive and I wish someone had warned me! It won't be long before I need sewing rehab.

    ReplyDelete
  21. My favourite vice, at the moment, is hash browns with mayo. It sounds like a weird combination but somehow it works. Fairly far from being healthy though! That fabric is so gorgeous.

    Oh and well done for winning! Everything you made was great, so I can't say I'm surprised ;)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Favorite vices - eating all the lollies from the kids' party lolly bags (what lolly bag darling? Hmm I don't know where it is...) And fabric and patterns. I would love to win that fabric!

    ReplyDelete
  23. My number one vice is always fabric. My sewing machine has been in a silent season right now, and I am pouring my creativity into songwriting at the moment. It is less damaging to the pocketbook. My all time food vice would be a bowl of greek gods yogurt with walnuts, berries, and chocolate chips. But it's a toss up - depends on the day and the season...right now, on the brink of spring, it's homemade dandelion wine.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Congratulations! My favorite vice right now is Netflix TV show marathons. And yarn. Yarn is always a vice.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I skate. I sew. I travel. I throw. A lot. My vices are a-plenty.

    ReplyDelete
  26. fabric. looking at it online. buying fabric. petting fabric. folding it neatly. sorting it by color. petting it some more. oh and sewing.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Congrats on winning Project Sewn! My favorite vice would be sitting on the couch with my laptop and a cocktail, pretending to be swamped with work I've brought home, when in reality I'm reading sewing blogs... kind of what I'm doing right now actually ;)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Vice, oh yes, staring at vintage patterns on Ebay and Etsy until starving family members arrive at my computer, fork and plate in hand, looking forlorn and... excuse me, what was that? No, dinner's not ready yet... no and it won't be ready until I figure out what to bid on this Spadea Ceil Chapman pattern... the kitchen's over there--get a pretzel.

    ReplyDelete
  29. My favorite vice is while I'm sitting by the computer I eat ice cream and lots of chocolate.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Favorite vice is a secret hoard of Hershey Symphony bars for a chocolate fix. Secret hoard is vital, as I live 30 minutes from a store that sells them. Lucious fabric. Congratulations, but I never doubted you had it all sewn up! :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. My vice? Peppermint. I seriously crave it sometimes and will eat an entire bag in an afternoon if left alone. I'm trying to cut back since it's not exactly healthy!

    Congratulations again, Every single thing you made for this contest rocked!

    ReplyDelete
  32. My vice is pizza. And white wine. Sometimes I live on the edge and have them at the same time! :) Congrats on your win!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Congratulations!
    One vice is buying beautiful fabric that feels lovely to the touch. My other vice which I regret every time I do it is eating almost a whole bag of potato chips. Yup, you heard it. I always seem to do it when I am super hungry.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I think I would have to say my favorite vice is living vicariously through fabulous sewing blogs like yours, and imagining myself wearing your amazing creations! (and well, scones hot from the oven slathered with butter!)

    ReplyDelete
  35. Congrats on your win! My vice = le booze. For sure.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Congrats on the win! My vice - donuts! There is this amazing indie/untraditional/hipster donut shop near my home that I visit almost every week!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Congratulations. It was fun following your creativity......and.....My favorite vice would be my vodka and lemon right before bed.

    ReplyDelete
  38. You are seriously so awesome - it feels like you're giving away famous fabric - oh wait, you ARE... and you'll actually trace a pattern for us?? That's love!! :)

    Only one vice? That's tough!! My favourite vice is really really good coffee, with full-on heavy cream in it :) And buying silk online when I should be working... *looks over shoulder*...

    ReplyDelete
  39. I never would have guessed you had an introverted shy teenage girl lurking inside! The fabric is gorgeous! My vice is definitely chocolate followed closely by shoes.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Um. I've never tried to think of a favorite vice... probably speculoos. And barbeque kettle chips. And fabric, but that's no vice at all. And butter cookies. Skittles. FRENCH PASTRY...

    ReplyDelete
  41. My favorite vice? Gotta be fabric and yarn shopping. It's a feast for the senses.
    Love you to pieces!

    ReplyDelete
  42. My vice is 5 min mac and cheese, which is odd because I generally avoid stuff like that. Congrats on Project Sewn my fav was your first outfit, amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Silk panties, baked Brie, warm Southern guy, cold gin. (Too much for a sewing blog? Probably. But you did ask. And now I'll have to go watch Kevin Costner give the "I believe in" speech in "Bull Durham." Cause it's the other side of the penny.) You so deserved the win.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Oh. I've had to give up most of my vices as I tend to do them in excess! Bad Becky! I do tend to spend far too long in a hot shower, wasting water, drowning out the day in lots of yummy shower gels. Coffee is boring, but true and still legal for me ;-). Oh, and the man right after he gives himself a close shave - no thigh chaffing. ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  45. Pommes frites. Best vice ever, but so fattening!!!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Pie. And books. I can't seem to stop collecting books, even when I have two bookcases full that I haven't even read yet. Even when I have to annex several other pieces of furniture to stack them on willy nilly because the bookcases are full. Even though I work at a library, and can theoretically just borrow and return anything I want. I just want all the books!

    ReplyDelete
  47. oh my gosh so pretty! I rarely admit this but my vice (secret one) is watching vampire diaries! and food vice gummi candies!

    ReplyDelete
  48. How are silk panties a vice??? My favorite vice isn't fit to print.

    ReplyDelete
  49. My favorite vice? Chocolate. Too bad it is too painful to eat. :(

    ReplyDelete
  50. Cocktails. Most definitely. The more creative the better.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Vice? I have a few... My favourite has to be gratuitous " ooh, pretty, mine!" Fabric purchases with absolutely no clue what I'm going to make with it. Closely followed by ways of combining alcohol and friends. I'm not yet able to combine a drink and sewing, I fear I'd sew myself to what I was making. Oh, and Sci-Fi. I loooove it!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Chocolate, and fabric hoarding....*sigh* must sew through my stash!!

    ReplyDelete
  53. My current vice is Liberty Nike shoes... I have 5 or 6 pairs.

    ReplyDelete
  54. This is one bad ass giveawa, fabric worm by the winner of the Project Runway!!! My biggest vice is shaking my booty to a tune like am some rap video extra. In the comfort of my own home and alone of course.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Favourite vice? Chocolate. Rarely does a day go by when I don't eat some. (Speaking of which, must be about time for my daily c-fix.... 'Scuse me, I'm off to the pantry....!)

    ReplyDelete
  56. Good question Oona. I'd die to get my hands on that fabric. Ok, my vice is chocolate and lying to my kids when they ask for some and I tell them there's none left because Mummy wants it all for herself. Mwah ha ha!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Living in Ireland wine isn't so much of a vice as a way of life, so I'll note my other vices: bad action movies, duvet days, over priced bubble bath, anything food stuff that involves butter, engelbert humperdinck

    ReplyDelete
  58. hot curry, cold beer, and my hot hubby..in that order :)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. ooh and i am not anonymous, maybe i should be, i am Jen. Double :)

  59. Wow! Thank you! My biggest vice is probably Bloglovin. I am truly addicted to my blog roll. If accompanied by chocolate (in lieu of wine since I'm pregnant) so much the better!

    ReplyDelete
  60. Congrats Oona, a well deserved win! My favorite vice is probably buying goodies on etsy, I cannot resist awesome vintage sweaters or a great cut of fabric :)

    ReplyDelete
  61. Mine is eating WAY too much chips and queso! Also, as someone else mentioned, spending too much time planning future projects to finish current ones (usually while eating chips and queso)!

    ReplyDelete
  62. I got inspired and googled vice, immoral or wicked behaviour, the most wicked behaviour I get up to is making pancakes with my four year old daughter for breakfast on a weekend, followed a close second by buying boots, fabric, clothing or sewing patterns and insisting that said items are in fact not new.
    Until said four year old daughter spills the beans on me! Brat!

    ReplyDelete
  63. TV shows are definitely my vice. So many shows, so little time...
    Again, congratulations on your big win!

    ReplyDelete
  64. Licorice, wine, listing to my old Hanson cd (cannot believe I told you that one) and reading teen vampire books...

    ReplyDelete
  65. Awesome giveaway! My husband would tell you my vice is sewing and buying fabric. What's so bad about that? It's really red wine and cashews. That's as evil as I get.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Oh my god that fabric is AMAZING!! SO COOL!!!
    The Walking Dead is probably my favorite vice; my family has learned I am unavailable 8-11 on Sunday nights. (Hey, I need to devote my full attention to the zombie drama!)

    ReplyDelete
  67. Potato chips are my favorite vice. Seriously, if a bag lasts more than 24, I was "good". nom nom nom And I like crazy flavors like salt & vinegar and dill pickle.

    ReplyDelete
  68. A win well-earned, Oona!
    Even Charlize Theron seemed to think so, on the red carpet... only her dress was held up by 'invisible' shoulder straps, while yours did it all on its own! Wahey for inner construction!
    Favorite vice... not counting fabric, waaaaaay too obvious.... roasted, unsalted pistacchios. Truly. Can't stop. before. bag. is. emptied. Oy.

    Sabine sushi(at)telenet(dot)be

    ReplyDelete
  69. My favourite vice? I feel like I should write wine, but then, as a teacher, big brother, blah blah blah, so let's say netflix. Yeah, Netflix, she's got me hooked.

    ReplyDelete
  70. M&Ms for sure. That fabric is awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  71. Chocolate. Wine. Cheese. Definitely not exercise.

    Love your work! x

    ReplyDelete
  72. Watching Korean dramas - I bawl like a baby no matter how obvious the plot, and always root for the "wrong" guy to get the girl (who never does...)....

    And no, I speak/read absolutely NONE of that language.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Chocolate and fabric hoarding. Have. To. Stay. Away. From. Mood and the Fabric Store in LA or I will go broke and my husband will divorce me.

    Congratulations!! You deserved the win

    ReplyDelete
  74. Congrats!! I guess it would be sugar. I don't drink and stuff anymore...but I am addicted to fabric...I love both so much!!

    ReplyDelete
  75. Congratulations! Lots of vices but my worst include vintage patterns and coffee!!!

    ReplyDelete
  76. Does knitting count as a vice? I get itchy if I don't have a project stashed in my purse at all times. You rock!

    ReplyDelete
  77. Congratulations! What a generous giveaway! I have many vice but my personal favorite has to be my obsession with Law & Order SVU. I will happily drop most chores to watch an episode I have undoubtedly seen 3,685 times.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Shoes, shoes, it's got to be shoes. They make all of my lovely home made outfits sing!

    ReplyDelete
  79. I must have wa-a-ay too many vices -- my head feels likes it's gonna split wide open when you say I gotta choose a favorite. Shoes, maybe. Or that Portuguese brandy I gotta travel over state lines (twice!) to get. Or a whole bagga potato chips (Utz!).

    ReplyDelete
  80. Hmmm. Vices... I'll admit, I'm the type who constructs elaborate rationales for my vices, thereby "un"vicing them. Can I say that as the person with a pot of lard rendering on the stove at the moment that I love fat? Step aside sugar, where is the fattiest dessert on the table?! But really, fat is not as bad for you as they say, not unless we're talking margarine (yech!). I swear!

    ReplyDelete
  81. Magazines ... closely followed by chocolate! I go past a newsagents early in the morning on the way to work and always get to wondering what's new on the magazine rack so I can read something on the train ... It's got to a point where I'm going through them all at home and taking one in my bag each morning to make sure I've read it properly - cheaper that way too!!!

    ReplyDelete
  82. Many congrats! I'm a vegetarian but I do enjoy a packet of sweets containing gelatin every now & again...

    ReplyDelete
  83. Favorite vice? Hmmm, that'd have to be blog-surfing at work! So many blogs; so little time ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  84. Yeah....that would be European and Italian designer shoes...I guess that is not so bad but I do ride public transportation so I can support my habit. {:-O

    ReplyDelete
  85. What a generous giveaway you've put together here! So much pretty :)

    Hmmm so many vices! But those that tend to make me throw caution to the wind are shoes and fabric.... hang those bills that need paying :p

    ReplyDelete
  86. Definitely cOmedy. Yeah comedy.

    ReplyDelete
  87. Favorite vice? A lot to choose from, but I'll go along with the crowd and choose chocolate...

    ReplyDelete
  88. my favorite vice... sweets. i have no control. what an awesome giveaway, that fabric is gorgeous!

    ReplyDelete
  89. Congratulations on your win! My favorite vice is buying patterns! I love a .99 cent pattern sale!

    ReplyDelete
  90. My favorite vice is chocolate!

    ReplyDelete
  91. Congrats on the win. My favorite vice is home made chocolate cake.

    ReplyDelete
  92. Sometimes, when my cat is very sleepy (and therefore unable to retaliate), I like to rub my face in his soft belly fur. Does that count as a vice? It's quite hazardous to my health; I frequently misjudge his level of sleepy and end up with a scratched face. It's worth it.

    ReplyDelete
  93. Travel, anywhere, anytime....definitely travel :) Ah.maze.ing. giveaway!!

    ReplyDelete
  94. Vodka soda w/ a lemon and a lime- what can I say, I like my booze!

    ReplyDelete
  95. I spend way too much time reading sewing blogs, and so much actually sewing :|
    Thank you for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  96. My favorite vice is shopping for fabric! I love to look online (while JoAnn's is nice, it does lack some) and visit my favorite shop in Detroit, Haberman's. Still have a lot left from the last time I was there! Should get busy sewing.....

    ReplyDelete
  97. I'd have to say my favorite vice is purchasing kitchen stuff and equipment. You ask why is this a vice? Because I cannot and nor do I ever cook. Sigh.

    ReplyDelete
  98. My vice? Magazines for sure! I think I buy at least one a day, sometimes more! Totally addicted! Congrats on your win! And what an amazing giveaway to celebrate :)

    ReplyDelete
  99. Oooooh this is not to be missed. I want to say my favourite vice is filling up my bath tub with champagne while I lay back and watch Dynasty re-runs, but alas no, I'd say it's a down and dirty margarita hopefully followed by a big naughty veggie burrito.

    ReplyDelete
  100. Favorite vice . . . there are so many options! Wine, chocolate, or new shoes. Take your pick!

    ReplyDelete
  101. Favourite vice is probably shoe shopping. I can't stop buying ALL THE SHOES, even though I don't even get the time to wear the ones I currently own. But a girl can never have too many shoes!!!

    ReplyDelete
  102. My favorite vice is probably a luscious cold glass of white wine. I think I may go get myself one right now!

    Congratulations on winning the sew-down and thanks for your sweet giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  103. sewing blogs are my vice. I am actually learning things. Congrats on your win. I can be contacted at msyp1@aol.com

    ReplyDelete
  104. Cold strawberries with nutella. Enough said!

    ReplyDelete
  105. That would be chocolate... specifically hot chocolate.

    ReplyDelete
  106. I got excited and typed a mega comment on my phone. AND THEN MY PHONE HATED ME AND DELETED IT ALL. And now I can't even remember what I said. Except that I was astonished you were doing a give-away to ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD? Does the future count?

    Also I think my sewing vice is sewing children's clothes. More specifically baby clothes. I don't have any children - I do have an obsession with miniature things (case in point, my mum still buys me children's 'my first baking set' style things, so I can make TINY CAKES with TINY SPOONS and TINY BOWLS and TINY SHUT UP NOW) getting back to the point.... Babies are pretty much just TINY ADULTS and their clothes are SO TINY. So anyone I know with children gets given handmade clothes... regardless of how well I know them. Awkward. It is good for stash busting though... because tiny clothes don't take up that much fabric... and they're really quick to make.

    ReplyDelete
  107. Of course you won, you're amazing!
    Favourite vice is Sunday twilight gin and tonics

    ReplyDelete
  108. My sewing vice? I reach for a chocolate biscuit before a seam ripper.

    ReplyDelete
  109. My favorite vice is tv show marathons... No moving. All day.

    Well maybe to pee... maybe lol

    ReplyDelete
  110. Favorite vice: staying up too late with my husband drinking cocktails in the backyard while the kids slep. In summer, with music,

    ReplyDelete
  111. Favorite vice: if I am attending a reception and they are serving cookies, I always have to take a few for the road. Wrapped up in a napkin and stuck in my purse, just like my grandma ... or just shoved into my pocket, like ... a hobbit?

    ReplyDelete
  112. Favorite vice? Hmmm... definitely sweets. I am absolutely addicted to sugar, lol.

    ReplyDelete
  113. Lately I've been addicted to those instant Japanese noodle packages... I guess it's not a vice exactly but they are pure sodium.
    Congrats on the win, also, you definitely deserved it. You are truly bold, creative and skilled.

    ReplyDelete
  114. Binge watching TV shows while crafting. My favorite right now is Dark Shadows.

    ReplyDelete
  115. Buying patterns and never making them up... Sitting down for 5 minutes to look at pinterest and then looking up, bleary-eyed and dizzy, 4 hours later ... and BEER!

    ReplyDelete
  116. My favorite vices (because who can choose just one?) are coffee, fabric, yarn and crap television that pretends to be educational (think HGTV, or Discover (that baby kitten show- too cute!)). Glad you won, you had some dashing outfits.

    ReplyDelete
  117. Definitely ginger beer. Particularly the disturbingly sharp and overpoweringly ginger kind. I think I've built up a rather remarkable ginger tolerance.... and then I guess there's also the fact that sometimes its too easy to watch an entire season of some random tv show I hardly care about while sewing/working because Prime Instant Video makes it far too easy.

    ReplyDelete
  118. Favorite vice? Why just one OONA? Too much wine, trash tv, fabric binges, being a smidge ornery....

    ReplyDelete
  119. I aways knew you'd kick ass in PS. You're too amazing not to! (Although I think Lladybird was robbed going so early. ) your pink dress is absolutely freaking amazing too!

    Hmm, vices... chocolate, shoes, and buying sewing patterns are all up there as favourites. But the world is full of excellent and indulgent things to have or do!

    ReplyDelete
  120. Popcorn. I could eat that all day. And probably would if I lived alone!

    ReplyDelete
  121. Vice. Chocolate covered pretzels. Hidden everywhere, in case I need to eat them anytime.

    ReplyDelete
  122. vice: chocolate & peanut butter - especially in homemade icecream!

    ReplyDelete
  123. My favourite vice is mulled wine and chocolate a complete migraine scenario but sometimes I can't help myself, I hide my chocolate in my fabric stash in plastic food bags as I know that no one will look for it there, now that I write this it sounds really bad and like I am depriving my children ha ha ha

    ReplyDelete
  124. I have too many vices to count, but my favorites are drinking and smoking of course.

    ReplyDelete
  125. My favourite vice is sleeping in late. REAL late. Especially in the winter when it's so cold and grey out, and so cozy and warm in bed. Great Giveawy!!

    ReplyDelete
  126. My fav vice is coffee, definitely coffee. I'm a mom, what can I say:)

    ReplyDelete
  127. Coffee in the morning, wine in the evening, dark chocolate always.

    ReplyDelete
