Get married (we're celebrating 5 years next month), have a baby (she's 3), and give my husband my blessing to quit his job as a lawyer and join the Army as an enlisted man for 2 years (he's finally commissioning next month).

I'd LOVE to get a seamingly accurate. I have it on my Christmas wishlist.

I think everyone I know who'd want one, already has one, but I do want to say congrats.

Most exciting thing in the last five years? It would have to be leaving New Zealand, my home for 35 years and moving with my husband to France.....the reason only that we wanted to try a new lifestyle! Not knowing the language or ever having visited the place, we just did it and found it to be a wonderful country with lovely people...

I have read about your seamingly accurate and would really like to have it.

The most exciting thing in the last five years would be travelling from Australia to holiday in New Zealand for a month.(Feb/March of this year) This trip was forerunner to when and if we travel overseas to Europe, Holland and Ireland. Regards Lyn

I would love to win this contest...i think everyone would! As to what I have done exciting in the past 5 years, I moved back to Ireland from America to our blessed Donegal County.
Well, I am crossing my fingers to win the seamingly accurate tool.
In Ireland

Wow, I've never seen this handy gadget before, it looks great, I'd LOVE to win one :o)!!
Hmmm, I didn't realise what a quiet life we lead until you asked that question LOL. One exciting thing I've done is to start up my own website and business - so far it's been terrific fun!!

I had to have tracheal resection this year. Embarassed to say at 48 this was my 1st plane trip! I had to fly to Boston, Mass. to have this done and I'm from Louisiana. Would love to have your seamingly accurate.

Oh my, do I ever need this! My most exciting event recently is a new dog! Adopted from the humane society and a wonderful companion! Thanks for the chance to win!

Your seamingly accurate seems to be a very good tool! Wow!
My most exciting thing that happened to me in the last five years is having been helped with my heart problem and therefore feeling much better :O)

Yoga with Gaileee, E-RYT said...

I'm a beginning sewer. I use the 1/4 inch foot on my singer featherweight, but I'm still not that accurate!! I'd really get some good use out of the Seamingly Accurate gizmo!

Let's see the most exciting thing in the past 5 years. Hubby and I decide to try once more for a baby. At age 45.....yeah, now I'm a mom of a 2 1/2 year old at age 49. Didn't have to go to any extreme measures (unless doing yoga everyday, counts....)

Thanks for the giveaway opportunity!

That looks like a great tool!!
My life isn't too exciting most days but 3 years ago my husband and i were at a pro-hockey game (Buffalo Sabres) and we heard our names announced over the intercom. We had to rush out and get our daughter to the hospital to give birth to our grandson. Her husband was unreachable so we did the driving. It was quite exciting with such a wonderful outcome.

Each day something exciting happens- unexpected snow, someone bringing over a cake or handme downs, selling our house-finally!,overhearing the kids playing WITHOUT fighting, having a baby, watching babies grow up, trying to sew...and it actually turns out the way you want it to, knowing God is intimately involved in the details of my life, buying something on ebay-and ending up friends with the seller!...and on and on. Each day is a gift and I am thankful and I plan to make the most of them!!!

This little gadget you have designed is awesome! I want one for me, my mom, and my sister!! Where can we get them? Pick me, Pick me!

Rachel said...

Most exciting...well I finished my Master's Degree. And I got to spend three months in Greece. That was absolutely life changing.

I really don't have ONE "most exciting" moment in five years. The top three would have to be, getting married, having my son, and most recently learning to sew. I have a passion for it that seems to be insatiable. I just became friends with a local alterations lady and she is just so helpful. I have read lots of books and practiced but she has taught me crazy things, makes sewing so much easier and this would be a wonderful tool to add to my sewing room. Thanks for the opportunity and congratulations on your design being picked up!

Most exciting thing I've done in the last 5 years?! ummm....Let's see I had a baby (my girl after 3 boys), learned to sew, make bows, moved and finally I went to see my old favorite group in concert...New Kids On the Block! that was exciting! LOL

jrene said...

I guess the most exciting thing I have done in the last five years was to move to a new city!
It has been an adventure!
I am not big on change so this was an adjustment for me but fun.

I had not seen your seamingly accurate til someone posted about it on a message list but it looks so cool and I woul dlove to be able to get one!

Margaret said...

The most exciting , hmm, I didn't think I would be blogging or quilting or stitching, so that's pretty exciting looking at the blogs getting ideas and inspiration. Yeah, thats exciting

Watching my son graduate from Technical school and now going to University to be trained as a Teacher. That would have to be the higlight in the last 5 years

Well this was a year of exciting things. My youngest daughter got married twice. Once in India in a Hindu ceremony and once in the states in a white dress wedding. And then 7 months ago my oldest daughter and her partner had my first grand daughter. I was so excited to be present in the delivery room for Annika's arrival. So now I have lots of special quilts to do! I'd love ythe seam allowance tool!
