To celebrate making it to 50+ followers, I decided to start doing some giveaways to thank all my followers! But first, I thought I would share a little story about Storks & Statistics before I get to the giveaway!
As the story goes, one winter shortly after World War II, there was an explosion in the number of storks nesting in some Northern European country. Approximately 9 months later, there was a large jump in the number of babies that were born. Now the link between storks and babies being what it is, many concluded that this correlation of the number of storks and the number of babies represented a casual relationship. Fortunately, science tells us that babies do not come from storks after all, at least not human babies. However, there is something that storks and babies have in common; Both can be "summoned" by cold temperatures and warm fireplaces. It seems that storks like to next in warm chimneys during cold winters. As it happens, cold winter nights also foster baby-making behavior. The apparent cause-and-effect relationship between storks and babies was in fact caused by a third variable; a cold winter.
Now for the giveaway ~ Many of us are stuck inside right now during this cold winter, but being stuck inside isn't such a bad thing when your passion is sewing! One of my most favorite items to make is a smocked bonnet. Nothing is more precious than to see a sweet baby's face encircled with a beautiful hand-smocked bonnet! For this giveaway, I have my Southern Stitches Ready-to-smock baby bonnet all ready for you to add your own beautiful hand-smocked stitches to! The fabric is white Imperial Batiste and it's my signature tapered bonnet style! The front edges of the bonnet is adorned with beautiful scalloped lace edging.
Even if you don't have anyone in particular to smock this bonnet for, you just might 9 months from now! If you don't know how to smock, I have some tutorials that can get you started!
To enter in this Giveaway, all you need to do is to leave a comment about your favorite baby item you like to make and also please share my blog with others - help me gain more followers! I will draw from all the comments left and announce the winner on January 18th. Thanks "sew" much for following my blog & I hope you enjoyed my little stork story!
