Get A Clue and Birthday Giveaway!

Well, today is the day. Ready to get your clue on?
 
 
Everyone is reminising on the good old times when they used to read Nancy Drew. Honestly, she was really my sisters thing. My Grandma had gotten me the book at first but I got stuck on the first one and decided to give them to my sister. Though later on as I got older I tried reading them again and I actually enjoyed them (I will be getting them for my kids some day).
 
Here are my little projects I came up with (though after seeing everyone elses works I find I am some what lacking in creativity).

This is going to be a pillow. Because of all the crazyness of this weekend I have not had a chance to finish it up (required a run to Joann's).

Photo: $30 when finished, this will be a throw pillow. 

This is a pouch I made a friend for her birthday, just 2 days before mine :)
Nancy Drew
 
 Since it is (on the 12th) my birthday I have decided to have a giveaway. I have a bag of random black colored sewing/craft items. I will add some more of something to it too.

Requirements: Leave a comment with your fave color (might add something of it in the bag). US only, I am sorry but postage just stinks right now.

  72. What an adorable pouch for your birthday friend. You are indeed a good friend to give a homemade gift. I saw the picture of your finished hexagonal Nancy Drew pillow. It is terrific. You are generous with your giveaway. My favorite color is BLUE, blue, and more blue. My husband used to say that if he didn't go shopping with me, all my clothes would be blue and sailor. I enjoyed reading your blog and am thrilled that you participated to inspire us. Happy Belated Birthday! (My mother's was on the 10th, my older brother's is on the 11th, my youngest grandson turned 2 on the 12th, and my dad's birthday was on the 27th. We have lots of March birthdays in a small family).
