Happy Birthday!


Hey! Today I turn 26 and it's also my blog's second anniversary!

I just can't believe it's already been two years.
I started writing here because ever since I started reading Gertie, I was so in love with the sewing blogosphere and I really wanted to be part of it.
I've grown so attached to this blog, to the possibility to share one of my main interests with other people and to the incredible support I've received since the beginning.
Thanks to this blog, I've been motivated to sew more, I've met some incredible people and I've been included in lots of amazing projects.

One of these, and definitely the dearest to me, was contributing to Deer & Doe. Ever since I discovered Eléonore's patterns, I was more than smitten by her talent and was a huge supporter of her work. We started emailing regularly, we decided to host a sew-along together and speaking of the huge request for an English translation of her patterns, she asked me if I was interested in translating them.
I'm a trained translator, and while I would usually refuse to translate into a language that is not my mother tongue, I am confident enough in my English sewing vocabulary that I accepted. And after some opportune proof-reading, the patterns are finally available in English!

I'm not a big fan of birthdays, I get embarrassed when I'm the center of attention and although I like to receive presents, I also love to give them! So, to celebrate little old me and my blog, and to show you all my gratitude, I'm giving away a Deer & Doe pattern of your choice.
To enter the giveaway, you need to be following my blog (please specify how) and just leave a comment telling me what present you'd like for your birthday. Please leave an email address for me to get in touch.

For extra entries, you can:

 Tweet about it (+1)
 Like me on Facebook (+1)
 Share on your blog (+1)

For each additional entry, please leave an extra comment below.
The giveaway ends on January 12, 11:00am GMT. Good luck!

    (I'm following you as one of your 500 members. If you would pick out me - being the first, is that an extra chance :-) - I would like to have the Sureau pattern, your versions convinced me, no doubt about that. les_mademoiselles[at]hotmail[dot]com)

  10. Happy birthday and happy blog anniversary Anna! Glad that you decided to start blogging two years ago! I follow your blog in google reader. I love the Belladone dress :)

    ReplyDelete
  11. Oh fun! Happy birthday to you and your blog! He's very inspiring! Without you I had never discovered Deer and Doe. And boy, I love those pattrens! A couple days ago I asked the Sureau Pattren for my birthday and I can't wait to start with it! (It's in French, but that will be no problem, I think)
    So, anyway, I would go for the Bleuet Dress. I find it even prettier then the Sureau.

    If I win (oh, God, then I would be soooo happy) you can contact me on fiencriel@hotmail.com.

  17. Happy Birthday! I hope you have a fabulous day! How exciting that Deer and Doe is now in English. I like the patterns but have never purchased one knowing I cannot read in French. So excited about the giveaway! I would like to try the Belladone. I follow you on Google friend connect, shared on my blog and have liked on Facebook.

  18. Wow - Yes please. I'd love to win a pattern. It was my birthday on 1st Jan and I got just what I wanted. A new ironing board for my sewing room. Told hubby this is the only time he can buy me a useful household item for my birthday!

  21. Happy birthday! and and Happy Blogiversary! How can I forget the striped Colette Parfait you made? I even added the Macaron to my wishlist because your versions pushed me over the edge, LOL! I'm glad you are in the sewing blogosphere. Thank you for this giveaway, I hope it's international because I would love to win the Sureau...or the Airelle, for that matter! And I get your posts via email and I am pretty sure I am a follower, not sure anymore. Oh, and to answer the question, I would love a Bernina sewing machine but that is waaaay to expensive a bday gift to ask for. (I have started saving for one, in any case)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Happy birthday! I follow via Google Friend Connect! To tell the truth, I'd be torn between the Belladone and the Bleuet. They both look nice! Thanks for the giveaway!

  23. Happy Birthday pretty lady and thank you for all the blogging goodness XD Please don't enter me for any giveaway stuff-I have all I need. Cheers and here's to another awesome year.

  24. Hello there! Happy happy birthday to you! That's so amazing you've accomplished so much before 26. :) Congratulations on translating the patterns! I've never been inclined to purchase one myself, since they are in French (and it's hard enough for me to follow patterns in English, hehehe). :) I am so inspired by your sew-along to try out the Sureau dress - it looks so gorgeous on you!!

    I just recently discovered your blog this past year... Not only are your garments beautiful, but I just love the way you photograph them also! I'd be interested to see a little how-to on photographing your projects, if you're looking for new post ideas in 2013. ;)

    Anyway, I follow you on my Wordpress reader - I hope that counts! Best of luck to you in the New Year, I'm looking foroward to seeing what you have in store this year!!

    Take care ~ xo, Amanda

  60. Happy birthday! I follow your blog since some time now, just before the sew along at which I participated. I always read it in google reader and I follow you on twitter. I have some more Sureaus coming up, I like the pattern a lot and even though French is not my mother tongue the explanations were easy to follow. Neither is English, but I can imagine people are waiting for it. I already have Belladone so if I win I would like bleuet.

  61. Happy double Birthday! I follow your blog on Bloglovin'. It's a really tough choice but I think I'd have to go for the Pavot coat if I was FORCED to pick a favourite!

  66. That's pretty cool that your birthday is also your blogoversary! Hmmm, birthday.... I guess I really do need to start thinking about it, since mine is next month! I guess what would probably be best at this point is something that will help me with organizing my soon-to-be sewing/craft room. Either that, or a fun board game that I can play with my fiance.

  79. Happy Birthday Anna! I hope you have a great day!

    I am following you in the old style, checking out several times a week because your blog (and Gertie's too) is one of my favorite sewing blog. I started reading your blog by the end of 2011, when you talked about the Burda Dec 2011 issue (I bought that issue because of the pastel dress you showed and I sewed it) and then I decided to blog too.
    Reading the other comments, I realize I am not up to date with the internet 2.0, there is a lot of stuff I never heard about! Still, thank you for the give-away, I'll give a try and I would love to sew a Sureau.

  87. Hi Anna, I've only just started following you but I have been oggling all your creations via burdastyle. I use google reader to follow (I have only just discovered this and I am loving it). I would love the Airelle as I have just bought some very soft and light japanese lawn that would look beautiful in this design. There is a bit of flouro yellow in the fabric so I think flouro piping would look awesome. Anouk

    Happy birthday! I discovered you just before Christmas after finding Deer & Doe. I've got a Sureau and a Pavot on their way in the post now...and got me some nice printed cotton for the dress :) kinda like the idea of challenging my French and using the English as a back up ;)

    I follow you via RSS and twitter, have a good one!

  105. bon anniv' et bon annee, bon sante.

    I subscribe to your blog via email and it was through you that I found out about deer and doe patterns. I have the belladone dress pattern waiting for my sewing skill level to match it! For my birthday I'd love some tips on good french websites for fabrics - I'm struggling to find any - can anyone help? Failing that, UK ones that will deliver to France.

    ReplyDelete
  106. Happy Birthday! I've followed your blog through google reader for a few months and I love the things you create! Thank you for translating the deer and doe patterns, I have been waiting for the english translations so that I can follow your sew along and make the sureau dress! My birthday is not for a while yet but if I had to chose something now I would probably go with fabric or even better time off to do something with my fabric! I hope you have had a lovely birthday!

    ReplyDelete
  107. Discovered Deer and Doe thru your blog which has become my number one go-to site for inspiration and excellent sewing advice. Ordered the Airelle and struggled thru with my rusty French so was delighted to receive Eleanor's email saying the patterns were now available in English. She credits your efforts in making this possible. Thank you! My Sureau and Belledone are already ordered, but I'd love to add a Bluette to my collection. I follow your blog via Google and Facebook.

  108. Happy Birthday To You....!

    My birthday was Dec 31st and if I could go back in time I would put 'Robe Belladone' on my wish list. I love the cut out, it's so feminine and sexy! I follow you via email. I can't remember how I first heard of your site but I'm guessing it was another sewing blogger singing your praises :o)

  110. Happy Birthday! I am excited the patterns are in English now, I am trying to learn French but it is going awfully slowly, not sure when they get to the sewing terminlogy ;-) My choice would be the Sureau after seeing so many variations on the blogosphere. Thanks!

  112. Happy Birthday Anna! Its funny, but we share the same birth date, except I'm a year older :) I love your blog and seeing all the beautiful clothes you sew. I also like your Burda mag reviews. Deer&Doe have produced lovely patterns and I would love to start my collection with the Airelle Blouse. And thanks for agreeing to translate them, French would have been a challenge!

    Ever since I first found your blog I've been following you with Google Reader. I already have the Belladone pattern (which I love!). I would love to have the Sureau dress for my birthday (which is in a couple of weeks ^-^).

    Greetings,

    happy birthday!!! thanks for the lovely giveaway! I haven't done a deer & doe pattern yet, but i'd love to (esp. the belladone dress)!

  132. Happy Birthday! I've followed your blog quite sometime and I love it.
    My birthday is coming soon so yesterday I filled up my wishlist : ) with lots of pretty fabrics. I hope I'll get one of them. I love the deer and doe patterns and I would be really happy if I'd win the Belladone dress pattern. The chance is almost zero as I have never won anything in my life but I keep on trying.
    I follow you by email.

  136. Happy birthday! I think it's awesome that you and your blog have the same birthday and I hope you get some wonderful birthday surprises! Gosh, this is embarrassing, but I follow your blog by Googling "Paunnet" everyday that I'm online. So I guess I follow your blog with my brain...and that sounded a bit creepy. Anyway. Aside from a Belladone dress, I am hoping to get a dress form for my birthday this year. Or wool coat fabric. =)

  137. Happy birthday! I'd love to try my hand at a Deer and Doe pattern. The line has a bunch of beautiful dresses, but I have my heart set on a mustard coat these days. My birthday is too far away to have any big birthday wishes. If I am lucky enough to win, you can reach me at amy.ahearta at gmail dot com. PS I follow with Bloglovin.

  160. Happy Birthday!!!
    For my birthday, anything sewing related would be great, a new sewing machine would be wonderful!!
    Those Deer&Doe patterns are gorgeous, I can't decide between Bleuet and Belladone, so I should probably go and buy both;-)

  168. Happy birthday Anna!
    I understand you, I'm not a fan of my own birthday either. As far as a present goes, I've been wanting a wrist watch for a while and every year I try to hint that to my friends and family. But for some reason they always get me something else, I guess I'm too subtle :) But that is fine, when it comes to gifts I am very easy to please :) And since mine birthday is January 12, winning this giveaway would be a sweet present as well :)

In an ideal world I would love my complete amazon wish list for my birthday - but I also wouldn't be displeased with a Deer and Doe dress pattern - loving Robe Bleuet and Sureau at the moment. larakrjacobs@hotmail.com

  175. Auguri! Che bel blog! I'm a new follower via bloglovin'! The robe belladone pattern is one of my favorites from Deer & Doe. I especially like the back's construction. For my birthday, I would love to take my whole family to Italy. I spent a year studying Italian abroad in Ferrara & Venezia; I'd love to go back and show my family some of my favorite hidden places. Warm regards from Alaska, Courtney

  176. Happy Birthday! I stumbled onto your wonderful blog during the holidays and now have purchased my deer and doe pattern for the sewalong. Ok, so I'm not sewing along, but rather sewing after the fact. Anyway, I've purchased fabric and on my way! I am a new fan of your site and don't know how to actually follow so please tell me if I am missing something. I just check your site every so often to see what's going on! I love your style!! Ok, what would I want for my birthday? More confidence to sew more garments! Or, to have started at an earlier age. I started my journey into the sewing world through quilting. I have since expanded my horizons. Ok, I'm addicted to the deer and doe patterns! Please pick me!

  177. Happy Birthday! I hope you spent a wonderful day treating yourself. Enjoy your next trip around the sun. I love celebrating my birthdays with travel trips. This last year my husband and I enjoyed a weekend in Portland, Oregon. Trips are a great way to look forward to your birthday each year.

  179. Happy Birthday & Happy Blogiversary! :) And how cool that you made it possible for Deer&Doe to have their patterns in English, my French is way bad...
    Hum, my birthday is still half a year away, and it would be obvious to say that I'd love a gift certificate for my favorite fabric shop, but my boyfriend and family always come up with amazing "experience" gifts like cooking classes or cocktail workshops or spa days (and last year my boyfriend took me on a helicopter ride) sooo... I'd rather be surprised? :D
    I follow your blog with bloglovin', btw.

  180. I read your blog on Google Reader and really enjoy the sewing inspiration. My birthday is in November and usually what I want by then is to go somewhere warm! But I'd accept something for gardening, cooking or crafting. :)
