Shiva and A Giveaway.
I know many of us are joined in bereavement over the impending death of Google Reader. Dearest Reader, you help so many of us keep track of our favorite online friends and distract us during our darkest (work)hours... It's going to be an adjustment. Loss is never easy. Change can be difficult... but it doesn't have to be. Sites like Bloglovin have created easy tools to import your reading list. You can also create categories for your feeds to help easily manage them. There are other options too, Feedly and Zite both look like fantastic ways to manage feeds. Whatever you choose, I hope, moving forward, You'll take TresBienEnsemble with you! I love interacting with you all and I would hate to lose touch.
As a distraction, from this great universal loss, I offer you a March Giveaway. We started the year with two knitting giveaways, so this month, SEWING.
I'm so pleased and excited to offer one lucky reader the chance to win a $25 Gift Certificate to Grainline Studios. If you are familiar with Jen's creations, you already know how versatile and lovely her designs are. Grainline Studio patterns are available in printable PDF format. This giveaway is open to everyone, everywhere. I know I'm excited to print and make several pairs of maritime shorts for summer. I probably need a few tiny pocket tanks and Scout Tees to go with them....
For your opportunity to win, leave a comment below. Be sure to provide valid contact information, so I can reach and send your gift certificate. If you're a gambling gal/guy, increase your odds by Tweeting a link to this giveaway @tresbienmichell (+2 entries). Entry is open until midnight (CST) on March 30, and a winner will be randomly chosen and contacted on March 31.

I have Scout on the sewing table...swooning over Archer and Moss...so please count me in...and thank you!
I'm actually not at all upset about Google Reader. The only reason I even have an account is because my all-time favourite RSS reader, the only one I've been able to stick with for more than a few months (it's been a few years now and I still love it: Feedly), uses the Google Reader API. And they migrate me to their new solution seamlessly. :) I've been really surprised to find that so many people could stand Google Reader, and that so many people seem (not bloggers so much as people on Facebook) to think that the death of Google Reader is the death of RSS. C'mon, folks, let's cheer up, we did RSS wonderfully before Google Reader and we'll do RSS a lot better after Google Reader! :)

Oooooh I would love to win this giveaway! I just bought the Archer pattern for the sewalong, but I really want to get the tiny tank and scout tee too! :)

Oooh, I've been trying to find a great sewing pattern for a pair of shorts and it looks like I've find it in the Grainline Studios Maritime Shorts. Thank you for the giveaway and I'd love to win.

Lovely giveaway! I'm drawn to both the Maritime Shorts and the Archer. I use NetNewsWire on my mac, and just switched to Feedly on my ipad.
I'm so pissed at Google for retiring my favorite product! :( Sad times, but there are so many other options out there now... It's just as you said though, change is hard!

I've bought the Scout Tee and I'm looking forward to sewing my first one. However, having bought a new sewing machine and my very first overlocker at the same time, I'm a little intimidated so I've been sticking to bags and cushion covers! Thanks for hosting such a nice giveaway.
