pajama pant giveaway

okay, since today is actually my birthday, time for a larger than normal giveaway. How about a pair of pajama pants, since everyone knows I love me some hand crafted pajama pants!
And, you can have your choice of fabrics. Note - all fabrics are 100% cotton, prewashed and dried, so there should be minimal shrinkage.
 
there's wintery birds (with a Angry Birds kind of vibe...) I love this fabric:
Then, if Christmas is your thing, there is this Christmas polka dot fabric - this is flannel, as opposed to plain cotton - definitely snuggly and warm.
The next two fabrics are shown here - unfortunately, not very well. Even with two cameras, this picture didn't come out so good. The fabric on the left is also flannel - a lovely shade of coral. The fabric on the left is for anyone who is not a fan of cotton pants - I know there are people like that out there. It's a satiny, polyester jacquard in a silvery grey.
If you love a maple leaf, or perhaps the Toronto Marlies, this would suit you - royal blue fabric with white maple leaves. (to be honest, this was originally for my nephew, who was playing in the Marlies organization, but then he was drafted by the Peterborough Petes.) again 100% cotton, prewashed.

Leave a comment on this post, telling me which fabric you would like, by Sunday at noon, and I'll draw a name from those comments. Then I'll be in contact with you for sizing info (I'll need, waist, hip and inseam measurements), and in a week or two, I'll mail you off a pair.
This is my way of thanking everyone who reads and comments here - I certainly don't write this for glory or comments, I do it because I like to. Most of my friends and family don't really get the knitting and sewing, so this is my outlet to find people of a like mind.
Plus, I'd rather give stuff away on my birthday - I am not a big fan of being the centre of attention, so today is not among my favourites of the year.

Happy Birthday!!!!
I like the silvery jacquard fabric. Or the coral flannel...
How did you fix the blogger picture issue? I remember there used to be a bar on the dashboard that showed how much space you had left, but I haven't seen it after the past re-vamp.

Since I just won, I'll recuse myself from the pajama pants draw (although I would totally go for the flannel Christmas polka dots and the DD would doubtless go for the birds... just sayin'!).
So I'm really stopping by to wish you a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!!! May the coming year be full of wool, interesting patterns, and lots of knit nights!!

Happy Birthday! I know how you feel about not wanting to be the center of attention. I'm uncomfortable with that too. I like your idea of giving instead of receiving on your birthday. Sounds like you're having a lot of fun with doing that throughout your birthday month. Have a wonderful day! :-)
