Contest Announcement!

I want to thank everyone for they're lovely comments on the posts so far this week. I know you're looking forward to learning more about this celebratory contest - WELL - Tomorrow is the 3rd anniversary of the first bag ever created by Nana Sadie Rose (aka Moi!). And here is the very first Nana Sadie Rose bag:
Before you innundate me with emails, there is no more of this fabric (other than the occasional fat quarter on ebay which sells for astronomical amounts of money!) and this one is mine. I've used it for three years (did I say my bags hold up under pressure - this is the proof!)

So why a contest? Just because it's been 3 years? Well...not exactly - you see during the preparations for the Star City Cat Show I've finally made my....(drumroll please?)

500th bag!

Yes you heard right (I'm a little impressed myself!) FIVE hundred bags. In three years. honor of that, there will be a contest. Tomorrow I will post the bags I've been working on - each will have a name. And you're going to guess which one of them is the 500th bag! Ultimately this will be inside it, but you won't get to see it except right here! (remember the rose from earlier in the week? It's a card, and this is what's written inside...)

Do not start to guess yet, okay? When I post the photos tomorrow, they'll be numbered and the bags named. You'll have a few days to email me at siameezercat AT yahoo DOT com to tell me the bag you think is #500. What will you win? Well, that's for another post, but I think you'll like it...more to come...

Geesh, Mom, you're really working this one, aren't ya?

Congrats on the big 500th! That really is amazing. And you're still going strong.
I had some of that fabric, too. If I remember, it's Alexander henry's Haiku Cats, and it was available in creamy yellow, black or red backgrounds. Of course, I could be wrong, but it WAS expensive.

When you are centered in that place in you,
