a winner! (and some baby news!)

Wow, what a great response! I enjoyed reading about the things that inspire you — seems like the internet (blogs & flickr) is the clear winner, though the things around you, such as nature, your children, architecture, books, etc, seems like it came in a close second! (I noticed that not too many of you mentioned being inspired by the TV — guess that’s just me!)

Anyway, I know that our winner is going to just adore Elizabeth’s new book, as well as that gorgeous pile of fabrics, so I won’t keep you waiting… our big winner is #819, Gillian, who gets her inspiration from her daughter. Congrats!!

Remember that there are many more chances to win! You can read another interview with Elizabeth today over on I Heart Linen.

(I think I’ll be spending my weekend checking my stash for good boy fabrics!)

    Congratulations on the boy! Boys are awesome. :-)

    Is it weird that I was sort of hoping mine was a boy for the sake of the quilt? I don’t know, I had such an urge to make a boy quilt. Ah well, pink it is!

    Boys are great, (but potty training can be tricky…8-])I have 5 boys and I used to make all of their clothes from footed pajamas to bib overalls, to jackets. Never made shoes or socks, though…lol.

    Congrats! I bet Morgan is over the moon..8-]

    Congratulations on your boy!
    I always “knew” I was going to get a boy (21 years ago) and had made a lot of blue baby stuff.
    And then I had a girl.
    It wasn’t easy to trust my gut feeling again after that
    (though that only lasted a few months …)

    Good luck to you all!
