2nd Blogiversary Giveaway

Yesterday was the second anniversary of my first post on this little blog.  When I published my first post I really had no idea what to expect, and to be honest I still don't!
Quite a bit has happened since then as well.  I've made goodness knows how many garments (most of them dresses!) as well as accessories, free motion embroideries and even a kiwi!
I've changed the name of the blog from A Little of What You Fancy to it's current incarnation as Stitched Up by Samantha.
I've been a member of the Minerva Crafts Blogger Network for nearly 9 months, and have recently been asked to join the blog team for White Tree Fabrics as well.
So I think a little celebratory giveaway is in order.  The prize will be a free motion embroidered sewing machine picture, similar to this one.
It will be mounted and ready for you to frame, and I'll post worldwide. 
All you have to do to be entered in the giveaway is to pop over to my newly created I Made These page and tell me which is your favourite of the projects I've got on display there.
I'll keep the giveaway open until Sunday 6th July, after which time I'll pick a winner.  Just make sure there's a way for me to contact you when you comment.

  1. Congratulations on your blogiversary!

  2. Happy blogiversary! I am just in love with your free motion embroidery pieces. Would love to win. I think my favorite project of yours is your most recent posh frock. I love those big polka dots.

  3. 1) Congrats on 2 years!!!!
    2) Hands down the Fancy Butterick 5987! (although that peplum top is absolute perfection on you!)

  4. Congrats on your two year blogiversary! I really enjoy reading about all of your makes. I have to say I am very fond of your kiwi but I think my fav is your patterned peplum top. The shape and fabric look great on you :-)

  5. Happy bloggiversary!
    I like loads if what you make- the choice is hard!! Of course I adore your machine embroidery, loving your dress shop window, as you know. But of your clothes- it'd be your 'another Anna' maxi length, your linen laurel or your stripey top with the criss crossing over. They are all special for different reasons !

  6. Happy blogiversary!! My favourite thing you have made is your sailboat Anna, I have serious fabric envy over that dress! But I also really love your dress you made for the Minerva meet up.

  7. Happy blogiversary!! What a great giveaway - your applique pieces are so pretty!

    It's a tough choice, because you've made a lot of really great things. But I think I have to go with the Sailboat Anna, as I'm obsessed with sailboats!

  8. Gosh it's so hard to chose one, but I am going to say your jamie jeans just cos I admire anyone who can make jeans :-) congrats on your 2 year anniversary.
