Reblogging :: paunnet ::: Happy Birthday!

Paunnet is celebrating a birthday!  Wishing you many happy birthdays, Paunnet! She's also hosting a giveaway of a Deer and Doe pattern.  I haven't tried any of them (yet) but I've seen a few around the 'net and I think I may have to try sometime.  I've never tried them before because they are written in French.  Well, not anymore!  Click on the link to follow to her blog or continue reading here:  

:: paunnet ::: 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.
