follow friday for 4/8/11

is it friday already??

so this is a very nerve-wracking time for me which could finally end on tuesday or continue on; but could end in a very good thing, or with a slight disappointment. i haven’t done much knitting or sewing since i got the news last saturday: i’ve been totally focus on trying to get myself ready for tuesday, more mentally than anything else. anyways, if you pray, i’ll take some of them coming my way :D.

so today’s follow friday is:

2 little hooligans

i love the blog design. and her fat quarter friday tutes. i love love love her organizing tote basket tutorial, especially the fabric used.

an additional follow friday…

…and a huge thank you.

first i wanted to show off my first blog give-away i’ve ever won (please pardon the lighting; it’s dark in that corner even with the light on and didn’t help that it was dreary outside. also i take most of my photos on the iphone):

a lovely set of moroccan-style tea glasses

being displayed on a bookcase (the frame was not part of the give-away)

so i won this give-away, which included the tea glasses and ingredients to make moroccan mint tea, from MarocMama. I wanted to give her a huge public thank you for this awesome give-away (and sorry it took so long to post about it) and encourage all my readers to check out her blog. she a foodie blogger, specializing in moroccan fare, but also blogs about her trips to morocco.  she’s also on twitter, facebook, and etsy.  i’ve actually made her moroccan style meatballs and it won a seal of approval of deliciousness from dh, who’s from the country next to morocco (slightly different cuisine though, different spices, even though it’s the same region). so, a big thanks to her for the give-away and everyone else, go check her out.

i’m hoping to finally brew up a pot of the tea tomorrow.

what can you do with fleece? a lot of things, and this is where you can come to get free patterns. i like fleece. it keeps me warm.

follow friday 3/18/11

so, a la twitter, and as a replacement of my friday links, which just took up too much of my time, i’ve decided to do a follow friday for blogs (instead of tweeps).  i’ll go down my google reader subscription list in alphabetical order. most were found via CraftGossip features so the first one is…

*Random Thoughts of a Supermom*

(the asteriks is what causes it to be first alphabetically in the google reader)

so like, i’m not even a mom right now but i like to read ideas so that i’m prepared when, God willing, i become one in the somewhat near future (and no not yet). call it pre-nesting i suppose. 🙂
