A little bribery…

Hi everybody!!!

Know what? I want more blog followers, and I am not above a bit of bribery to get them. I know a whole lot of you are reading, and I want to know who you are. Later this summer the newsletter is going to start up, and I’d love to have you on the list. I just like putting faces to names and comments and all that, especially since I have been getting to electronically meet so many people via those 2.5″ squares for the No-Repeat Scrap Vomit Quilt.

So, here’s the deal. I’m gonna give away two, count ’em two, great big scrap packs from my shelves, though the scraps aren’t so scrappy. All the pieces are somewhere between a fat-eighth and a half-yard. I gotta clean some room off my shelves, and I figured what better way to do it than to spread some scraps around.


This is one of the two identical scrap packs; there are some big bits of prints by Heather Bailey, Tula Pink, and Sandy Klop, along with a mix of all kinds of other things. To enter, all you have to do is follow the blog via the handy-dandy Friends Connect widget over on the right side of the blog.thomas-knauer-sews-join-site You see, I said I wasn’t above a bit of bribery, didn’t I? But since you’re here anyway, what’ve you got to lose? So, just follow the blog and leave me a comment letting me know that you have done so, or that you already follow the blog.

Oh, and if you want something fun to say in your comment, try coming up with a name for this color of Play Doh. I know it isn’t a single color per se, but since all the colors Bee had are now officially and irrevocably glommed I think whatever it is deserves a name of its own. (But don’t leave a second comment to do so.)


So, there you have it. A little love for everybody. Yay love!!!

Oops! I forgot to say that I will do the drawing on Friday. So until then, keep spreading the word!!!

    I’ve been following you using google reader but now follow the other way.
    I’m at a loss for the play d’oh name. We’re creating such fantastical combinations at our house!

    I am already a faithful follower! And I love the play doh, but I don’t have a great name idea. Pudding said MarBeelicious, and I think that is perfect!

    Hmm, don’t think this blog post was for me, as my child peed in your backyard today, possibly as you were writing this. But since my scraps could be your scraps’ great grandparents, here I am, noting that I follow you.

    The playdough reminds me of the effect we used to get when I was a kid, when we pressed silly putty on coloured newspaper, so I’ll name it Sunday Funnies.

    Kerry T says:

    I’m a follower and open to a bit of bribery! My name would be ‘Mish Mash’ as I love to do that with Play Doh – the only problem it all turns to a brown splodge, I’m pretty sure your quilt won’t though!

  31. 31

    As you know I stalk, um, sorry, ‘follow’ you across Twitter, FB and blog and regularly remind you!!

    I’d say playdoh colour reminds me of an acid trip so Acid Jellyfish or Serengeti Scream or Wibble Mix

    Think the night time Valium might not have left my system yet………

    I think I have followed you everywhere but the mall. And I ever get to NY, that may even change. Anyway, I would call the dough hideous, but in the interest of sucking up to win, I’ll officially name it “Rainbow Brite.”

    Jennifer B says:

    I am a new follower – a friend directed me to your blog. And that playdoh looks like Feemo clay an old college roommate used to make. So I would call it “Feemo.” (And, yes, I am positive that is spelled incorrectly!)

    Kasey says:

    I’m a follower already, and after a crazy game of Cranium last night, I want to call it Whiskey. Somehow, the play-doh from our game fell in a friend’s whiskey, which then meant any Sculpterade left your hands smelling horrid. we were also saying, “Pass the whiskey so I can sculpt” and “Drink your play-doh.” I hope you’ve played Cranium so this makes a teeny bit of sense! Happy Easter!

  49. 49

    I’d call it Scrappy Doh.
    I am a follower and have had fun reading your blog. I might have to resort to bribery for my blog one of these days. Great giveaway!
