Happy 3rd Anniversary “Nice dress! Thanks, I made it!!”

WordPress has a lovely little feature that reminds you of your blog’s anniversary.  “Nice dress!  Thanks, I made it!!” is three years old now!


Time has flown by and I have learned a lot about sewing, photography, writing, blogging and social media.  I always look forward to reading your blogs and sharing mine and I can’t wait to learn more.

To celebrate, I have a bit of a GIVEAWAY.  If you would like to have your name “thrown into the hat”, just leave a comment below letting me know all the ways that you follow “Nice dress!  Thanks, I made it!!” – WordPress? Bloglovin? Instagram? Pinterest? Twitter? FaceBook? email? … Have I missed something?  Let me know in your comments below!

I will collect the names and pull one from a hat and announce the winner on Sunday night, November 20th, oh let’s say … after 8:00 pm (Pacific Time).  Don’t be shy!  I will even figure out how to mail overseas!

Oh yes!  I almost forgot… what’s the GIVEAWAY?  Well I am particularly fond of my “Hot Hemmer”, so I thought I would get one for you too!




So let me know in the comments below – How do you follow “Nice dress!  Thanks, I made it!!” and I’ll go find a hat for the draw!

Happy Sewing!

  1. Hi Linda, Happy 3rd Birthday! I subscribe to your lovely blog. But you don’t have to enter my name since if I win the cost of postage would outstrip the cost of a hot hemmer!!

    1. Thanks for following! What country are you in?

      1. Australia where it’s getting very summery now!!

        1. Oh! I’m always so jealous when I am trying to take photos in the dark house or outside in the rain or snow of winter when you lovelies down there are enjoying sunshine!!! Of course, I don’t pay attention when we are the ones with the sun!

  2. Happy Birthday Linda. I have been following you on Bloglovin’ for quite some time. I’m in Australia so if postage is too high don’t include me in the draw.

  19. Hi Linda and Very Happy Blogiversary to Nice dress! Thanks, I made it!! (which, btw, is an awesome blog name) I’ve been following you on WP and IG.

    1. Thank you! I have been wanting to say “Thanks, I made it myself” for centuries, but I was always to quiet about my sewing. When I started my blog, I figured now was the time to be happy and proud! We should all be proud about what we create!! (I’ll stop talking now!)

      1. No, don’t stop talking proudly! It’s bloggers like you who keep bloggers like me inspired and challenged! 😀

        1. You are too kind! Let’s all keep making and talking… It is so inspirational.

  20. Happy 3rd Birthday Linda! I don’t have the faintest idea what to do with a Hot Hemmer so don’t put my name in the hat, I just read your blog because I’m interested in seeing what you’re working on and l love following your obsession with old sewing machines. I also enjoy hearing what the cats are up to. 🙂

    1. Well, let me explain… a Hot Hemmer is what you put under your Latte so that you don’t mar your sewing table. (I can bug you cause I know you can take it!)

      1. Hahaha. Love it! 😋
