Sunday Stash #20 – Magic Suitcase Part 05 – 10,000 Views Giveaway!

In the words of demi-goddess Sally Field, “You like me! Right now, you like me!”* Even though she was wearing diamonds and clutching a gold statuette, I totally know how she feels. Over Easter break MolliSparkles.com celebrated its 10,000th page view!
When I started my blog, I completely did it with the intention of just having a place to record my own sewing progress and to show Grandma Sparkles the journey of the quilt I was making her. Seven months in, and I’ve got all of you lovelies stopping by regularly, I’ve made more quilts than I thought I ever would, done a few tutorials, become a fabric hoarder collector, joined three quilting bees, written a whole lot of musings about quilting, and made some fabo friends. You could say I’ve been werking.
So in honour of all of you, I went to Grandma Sparkle’s magic suitcase to find the brightest fabrics to share for this Sunday Stash, and ultimately share with you in a special 10,000 Views Giveaway! These are both half yard cuts, and feature what it looks like to go to the zoo on an acid trip–purple elephants, yes indeedy! Trust me, this is all you need to know about that!
To enter, just leave a comment telling me how fabulous I am and you’ll win. To enter, just tell me something that sparkles for you, and Mr. Random Number Generator will announce a winner at next week’s Sunday Stash. Open to everyone, so good luck, and thanks for reading!

*Often, misquoted as “You like me, you really like me!”
Linking up with Fiona at Finding Fifth for this week’s Sunday Stash-a-thon!  You should do the same.  
My silver Dolce & Gabbana sneakers are sparkling for me.

    You are inspiring Molli. I can't keep up. I'd love to go fabric shopping with you, I think you'd give me a new perspective on life. What glitters for me? My daughter is pregnant with my first grandchild (hopefully not last)so my eyes are pretty sparkly at the moment. To be or not to be grandma, nona, nan…hmmm.

    Congrats on the achievement! It'S a ton of fun to read along.

    I love those fabrics. Who knew I'd ever say that about something so bright and wild? Guess it's the sparkle of meeting my nephew once he hatches in about 3 months. Something else sparkling for me today: sunshine and blue skies after a long and dreary winter with way too much snow.

  17. Dawn says:

    My kiddos of course, especially my goofball son. A little story I think you'll appreciate. Last summer, right after he turned four, he was getting dressed for dance recital pictures with my husband. He had the classic black pants and a yellow velour shirt (short sleeves with a collared v-neck) and best of all a built in yellow sequined vest. Can you picture it? He was admiring himself and all his sparkles, so my husband told him after recital we could put it downstairs and he could wear it for dress-up. Leo replied, "or we could put it in my closet and I could wear it all the time!" He has personality and was a hit at his recital. 🙂
