Your work is inspiring and I love seeing it come through my reader so keep up the good work!

alarwyn said...

Okay, this was one of my favorite mornings this summer, me sitting with mu huge cup (read:bowl) of tea, reading through new posts on my Reader... And there was several posts of 365 Lucky Days Goodness! With lots of new favorites too. All that Mad Men love, and Book love and... :D

I just had to pin Public Library. I think that's my new favorite, just because my book load always looks like a pile too whenever I come home from the library. :D

What a kind giveaway. I'd love one of your pieces for our little lady's nursery. And really, you inspire me daily with this project. Being one who isn't easily motivated I really admire your dedication to such a project and love seeing the different places it has taken you and the opportunities and exposure that has happened. You are amazing, truly, and I hope you'll continue brining this wonderful work into the world.

Mark Bieraugel said...

I am a subscriber and LOVE your work. I own your Royal Couple prints which I see every morning when I wake up and every evening going to sleep. They make me smile as all your work does.

I am always amazed by your beautiful work. I adored the Mad Men pieces and all the female comedians (Janeane!) so much. I love your style and your stitching and sketching talents are awe-inspiring -- you capture so much with just a few strands of thread. I love it.

Bonnie said...

I love your stuff and follow your blog! It would be totally amazing to win!

This would be awesome! At least once a week, I waste an hour on the computer trying to get a picture of my kids to work as a line drawing. I can't figure out how to make it work without drawing it myself. You are amazing! I love this project and it makes my day when I see your embroidery pop up in my reader!

kristimontague said...

I've been subscribed to your blog via Google Reader for awhile now, and I LOVE your work! Seriously, I like pretty much all the same movies/tv shows and pop culture references, so I would love to have one of your works in my house! A custom one of me and my husband would be incredible, and I'm already eyeing a few for my baby's nursery (our first kid is due in December!) I can't wait to see what you do over the next 63 days or so!

kristimontague said...

This has gotta be one of my favorites: http://pinterest.com/pin/25262447880456867/

Hope you get to see Moonrise Kingdom soon! I'd be happy if you devoted 2 weeks worth to it, and I'd probably also go into debt once you put those in the shop!

lisa said...

Oh wow, winning this would be a dream come true! I am of course a subscriber and I am so inspired and in love with all of your work!

Just a few weeks ago I was thinking of contacting you about a custom order of my husband on his vintage honda wearing his sparkly gold helmet.. It would be a true HONOR to have your art on one of my walls.

Kelly said...

Holly Knitlightly said...

I'm not sure WHY I wasn't officially following your blog already! Haha. I definitely fixed that!!

I looooooove all of the pieces that you have done. You've got some mad skill! & really make me want to start embroidering things. I can knit & crochet, but they can't fill my walls up! Haha. I started an "art wall" in my bedroom & I would love to have one of your pieces on it. Okay, more like 5. Hahaha!

Last year I decided to celebrate all of the "weird" holidays. But I kind of got un-motivated and just stopped doing it. But I wish I stuck with it, or planned it out better, or something! Because I think it would have been a lot of fun to have finished. SO, what I'm saying is, you've come SO far in your 365 days that you HAVE to finish! You will be so freaking proud of yourself for having accomplished something os awesome. & I know you can do it! It can be totally hard to keep something going, but I think you have it in you to finish it!

Okay, now that I've written an entire chapter in your comments... I think it's time to post this, hahah!

Holly Knitlightly said...

Just followed ya on twitter & tweeted! (Although I hope no one else sees it, hahaha! ;) I'm greedy! haha.)

Holly Knitlightly said...

Just pinned your latest piece! Love it! I'm probably gunna be pinning a few more! haha.

Rae - Say It Ain't So said...

Renee said...

This is so sweet of you! I adore your work, you are so incredibly talented. Oh, and I follow you :)

Rachel said...

Wow! Seeing this giveaway totally made my day. LOVE LOVE LOVE YOUR WORK! I first saw you in Frankie Magazine and have been an avid follower ever since :)
I was so terribly excited when I saw your "Arrested Development" series that I think I've pinned nearly every single one, and it has also inspired me and a good friend/fellow Bluth fan to do some Arrested Development themed craftwork!!

Asli said...

What a lovely give away!

I am following your blog from the other side of the world (Denmark). And I cheer you on BIG TIME!! You make such beautiful things :-)

Sway said...

I literally squealed out loud (tres girly) when I saw you were doing a giveaway of one of your amazing works of art!
I've been following since back in early double digits (your Steve McQueen blew my mind!), and I love seeing each and every new piece you do! You have inspired me to really get into embroidery and opened up my eyes are to how many different ways there are to do it - not the standard roses on a hankie haahaha! I'm currently in the middle of doing the Vinyl Love pattern you sent me - I am in love with it!
Not to jinx my entry but if I won, I already know which of the many I'd have to narrow it down between :)
Lucky, you are an inspiration, a talented artist, and a super rad lady! Keep it up - theres only a couple of groups of 10 left!!! GO LUCKY!

Luvluv,
Sway

I was waiting since the announsment, because I couldn't find the right words. You see, your blog for me is not just an inspiration. Because of you and your works I start to believe in myself as a handmaker. And you show me what's hoop :))
I just really hope that after 365 days there will be more 365 and more.. and more! ;)
If I win I'll ask you to stitch my portret or Rick and Ilsa from Casablanca (I'm 26 years old and I've seen this film just now, it's truly amazing!)

I saw your work in Frankie magazine whilst I was in work and it really brightened up my day after having to deal with very mean customers! I also do Illustration at ECA, maybe if you ever fancy doing collaboration, give me a shout!
