anyone?

There are some amazing giveaways going on in blogland right now.
Nicole has some gorgeous yarn.
Katie has some beautiful amy butler fabric.
Erin has the new Betz White book.
And, Julia has some fantastic needle wraps.
You should enter.  You never know, you could win.
And, my sister would like someone who needs a wedding dress to have hers.
                         My sister and her husband.  Still happily married after eight years.
Seriously.  So if you are planning a summer wedding or know someone that is, and can wear a size 4, then leave me a comment (letting me know you want it) by friday, may 1st at midnight.
If I get more than one request, then I will draw names.  The only catch: you have to pay for the shipping.  And for those of you who like to sew and design your own clothing, there is a lot of beautiful fabric there.  I'm just saying.

Jessica said...

That dress is lovely and so generous...if only I had a reason to have a wedding dress!

Size 4?! Not quite, even if I was in need of a beautiful wedding dress... I hope you find the perfect recipient!

It never fails. I step over here for a visit and I leave so grateful for just the basic raw pleasures of life lived wide open. Giving away a wedding dress for the wee price of shipping? That is such a wicked cool idea. I think you'll be having a few people come your way.

I would want that dress...elegant and stylish in any era and time...for the joy and delight that is the beautiful bride's Friend!

And it's funny 'cause I can just about see mine, sitting in one of those dry cleaners boxes in the closet here, where I am...from you there...the door to which I keep open because of the window, bringing in light. It's just about 23 years now, soon. Holy smokes. :D

Peace out! I'll be checking back to browse the comments, for sure!

Beautiful dress. I'll ask around to see if anyone I know needs one.

Speaking of dresses - I never got mine cleaned and it's been almost 5 years now. Oops :)

Julie said...

What a sweet thing for your sis to do. Not that I need one or could wear a size 4. :)

MadMad said...

Missy knits said...

Wow, that is such a generous give away. I am not in need of a wedding dress, but I can't wait to hear who wins....what a lucky girl!!

Jennifer said...

Seriously?!?! A free wedding dress?!?!? My friend, Amanda, saw this post and forwarded it to me. In the spirit of good will and recycling, that's a great idea and a generous offer. I am going to be getting married, probably in the spring, but i'm not sure that i can fit into a size 4. Normally, I wear a size 6. hmmm.... Do you know what the measurments are?

Seanna Lea said...

That is a gorgeous wedding dress. I'm planning on cutting down mine (because there is staining that I can't get out from walking in the mud), because there is a huge amount of fabric going to waste! Hopefully someone will wear or use this dress. It is stunning!

Shannon said...

That is an awesome idea. I still have mine and I have often wondered what to do with it.

julesinseach said...

Dear Leslie,

Thank you so much for the mention here on your lovely weblog. The response was overwhelming and I am excited for the drawing tomorrow.

It's amazing how many followers you have that are inspired by you and your skills.

Truly, Julia

Estella said...

Thanks for all the giveaway ideas. Wish I knew someone getting married as it is a lovely dress.

Kay said...

My sister is getting married next summer, and the little shit wears a size 4-6.
She still hasn't found a dress... so if it's still available, love to get it for her. It looks quite a bit like the ones she's been looking at too!!

Hilary said...

How generous of your sister to give away her wedding dress! I'm sure it will make someone *very* happy.

La Cabeza Grande said...

The detail and styling of the dress is simply stunning! No wedding dress for me. I just wanted to say, "Wow!"

link building packages said...

Daniel, yea I can see what you probably did there. I really appreciated that part, however hehe I am not that harsh like my dad with these things. He at all times tells me crazy stories again in the day and calls me a loser. I guess it's time I move out of my dad and mom' basement LOL. Aaanyways, what about you? what does your dad think xD" Anyway, in my language, there are usually not a lot good source like this.

link wheel said...

Your weblog is fine. I simply need to comment on the design. Its too loud. Its doing method too much and it takes away from what youve got to say --which I feel is admittedly important. I dont know if you happen to didnt suppose that your phrases may hold everyones attention, however you have been wrong. Anyway, in my language, there usually are not much good source like this.
