The Number 14 (and a Fabric Giveaway!)

7 Feb 2013

I've decided that the number 14 is very romantic. Well, it's at least romantic to me. And no, it's not because February 14th is Valentine's Day (though that is what got me thinking about it in the first place). It's romantic for many more reasons than that!

First of all, my wedding anniversary is on April 14th. That alone makes the number 14 romantic and special. Second, through some strange coincidence--which I'm sure my husband appreciates because it makes important dates so much easier to remember--my birthday is on July 14th. (Okay, I realize that isn't actually romantic so much as it is kind of cool, but I'll take it.) Then, of course, there are 14 lines in a sonnet, that poetic form so often dedicated to the subject of love and romance ("Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?"). And while we're speaking of the arts, let's not forget Beethoven's Piano Sonata no. 14, more commonly known as "Moonlight Sonata." I mean, really, what is more romantic than moonlight?

All right, I'll spare you some of my more questionable examples (e.g., "Fourteen days is equal to two weeks, and Two Weeks Notice is the name of a romantic comedy!) and instead get to the point. It's time for a Valentine's Day fabric giveaway! And really, what would you love more than this Moda fabric designed by Mary Jane Butters?

All you have to do is tell me about a number that is particularly significant to you, and you'll have a chance to win! With this being a Valentine's Day giveaway, I'll announce the winner on the day itself: Thursday, February 14th. Don't forget to check back to see if you won!

Happy (early) Valentine's Day!

I am partial to the number 10, because I was born in the 10th month, and so were my two children.  My husband, sadly, was not born in the 10th month, but we still acknowledge him since his birthdate is the 10th day of the non-10th month that he was born in.

My favorite numbers are 8 and 9, my husband and I got engaged on 8/8/08. We would have gotten married on 9/9/09 but it was in the middle of the week so we opted for 9/19/09 which was also my grandparents anniversary. We were so happy to share the day with them.

The number 22 is special to me.  We had been married nearly ten years and were without children, not due to lack of trying.  We got a phone call on a Monday night and two days later, Nov. 22, 34 years ago, we picked up our beautiful baby daughter.  We celebrate her "special day" every year!  Of course, then we got lucky and I had her sister!  We have led a charmed life!

Your post caused me to reflect on a few numbers I like, and I realized that for me it's 37. I left a bad relationship and went back to university when I was 37, and stayed on until I got my Ph.D. Now, as a teacher, whenever I need a random number to illustrate a point on the board, I write - you guessed it - 37! When I rejoined Weight Watchers, I had 37 pounds to lose to get back to my goal! (And I'm getting close) The numerals 3 and 7 appear in all my significant numbers somewhere - house number, phone number, etc. It's just the random (or maybe not so random) number I gravitate to. Oh, and my mom lives 37 miles away - I just clocked it on the odometer last week!

Five is my number.  My husband and I were married in 1992, both of us for the second time. He has three beautiful daughters and our priority was to buy a house large enough for us to create a new stable, loving, family.  In order to do that, I never got an engagemrnt ring and we settled for a small wedding and simple gold wedding bands. On the Christmas Eve of our fifth year of marriage, we sat by the tree with a glass of wine to open one present each. He put Carly Simon's My Roamnce song on the CD palyer and handed me a tiny box.  In it was a sparkling , beautiful engagement

ring.  I was crying as we danced to that song.  It's a night I will never forget.

Thirteen, no question.  

It is my husbands fav number (on all his baseball team shirts, etc.)

and now it is mine.  

Before we met, he was at a psychic reading (under some duress, they needed one more person) and the woman told him that the he was going to meet someone and their name would start with M.     He thought no more about it.  But we met about a year later.  

My name is Mary, starts with M, the 13th letter of the alphabet.  His friend reminded him about the psychic prediction, and by golly it came true.  

And so now 13 is my favorite number as well.

My family is very sports oriented.  The number 13 has always been "our" number.  My husband's number on his softball jersey (starting 35 years ago). Our daughter's softball number (25 years ago).  Both of our grandson's have/had that number on their baseball teams.  Currently, one grandson plays on a traveling team for which I have made many quilted items-- "Ziggy bags" for holding all the medical items for the team.  Mondo bags for their moms. And currently I am designing a quilted "scroll" for each boy to keep and display all the souvenir pins they collect at tournaments.  Needless to say, the first one for my grandson will have the number 13 prominently embroidered!

on 9 Feb 2013 6:26 AM

The number 5 has always been my favorite number. Recently, on January 15, my dear son and his fiancé had a son, Charles William V, or Quinn for short, with so many ahead of him. Quinn is Gaelic for five. And he was born at 5 pm on the 15th! So five remains my favorite number, thanks to Quinn!

For many people no 13 is associated with bad luck, ESP when it falls on a Friday.  For me 13 combined with Friday.  First my son was born on Friday july 13th   I  meet my husband on a blind date on valentines day but we got married on Friday 13 in aug. I started my probation job 10 years ago on oct 13th.  My 3 year old was born may 13th.  And finally this year after immigrating to canada without jobs, my hubby started work in aug 13th. - on our wedding anniversary  so for me 13th number is lucky esp Friday 13th and full of memories.  Maybe as a new quilter, my luck will continue and win this competition  with no 13. Thanks bron

I love these prime numbers: 3, 5, 7, 11, 17, 19, 2003..  I met my husband in November, our 11th month.  He asked me to marry him in March, our 3rd month. We married May (our fifth month) on the 17th of 2003.

My birthday is the 19th of a non prime number month.  And I've always like the number 7: 7 M&Ms, 7 minutes early, 7 minutes of exercise, 7 miles is less than 10 miles but only by 3.

This is fun. Thank you.

22 is the number of inches of snow that fell on my corner of the world in last night's blizzard. And 22 is the number of inches of snow I now need to shovel. Some fun new fabrics to work with would make the rest of the winter much more interesting.

My favorite number is 14 because that too is a special anniversary for me.  It is wonderful to be able to connect a number to a special event.  We try to always do a special event on the 14th of each month.  Family comes first for me so I love to have the children over and just spend time together.  I am lucky the my daughter in laws both are learning to quilt so much of our get togetherness are meals and quilting.  I am a very lucky lady!

The number 16 is important to me. The date of my birthday, the date of my engagement and was to be the date we were to get married  but due to it falling in the week we decided to change the marriage date to the 19th so we could get married on the weekend. And I always pick the number 16 on my lottery tickets and once I did win $250.00 by useing that number. So to me #16 is allways my winning number in life.

The number one is probably my favorite. It used to be that One was the loneliest number, as sung by the Beatles, but times are changing and One is very important to the way we share the world with so many. Without the One how would things evolve or change in this fast moving world. It only takes One to be the difference the World needs. I am only One to some but a million to others. To my daughter and husband I am the One that is needed to make us whole. What could matter more? and then you reach the age where being One is pretty darn amazing in this world. I was made to be ME, the One that was created unique.

For me, it's all about #33.  Odd numbers have always appealed to me because they seem happier and quirkier than their uptight even brethren.  No matching set, no symmetry--a cluster of fun challenges to be embraced!  33 stands out for me because of all the odd numbers, 3 seems like THE happiest number, and when you double it, you double the joy!  I had signs way back when that 33 would always be my lucky number--33 was Steve Avery's number when the Braves were awesome, 33 was on the label of beer that was always on special when I was a broke college student (yay!), and I was 33 when I got one of the best jobs I've ever had.  I've never purchased a lottery ticket, but if I ever do, you can bet that 33 will most definitely be one of the numbers!

I've always liked the number 7.  I memorized the multiples of 7 first in school and could recite multiples of 7 up to 700 in less than a minute.  If I ever play the lottery there has to be a 7 in it!

What a great idea! I'd love some fabric for my church sewing group. We make quilts and other things for charity every Monday morning. My favorite number is 1 which always reminds me that Christ should be my number 1 because he gave his life for me.

I like the number 5.  Turning 5 is when I gained some independence and learned there was more out in the world besides my family.  And 5 is an easy number to keep track of and multiply.  It's an odd number and that is attractive to me, too.  I don;t really try to figure out why I  do or don't like certain things, I just tend to go along with my head and heart on those things.

Hi Michelle,

I've always been partial to the number 8.  It appears several times in my SSN.  It has also been a winning number once in while.  I like it because it appears infinite.  Even better, it rhymes with a lot of words like, mate, fate, rate, hate, bait, and on and on.  There are also 8 eights in a yard of fabric and it is easily divisible.  I think the number 8 is great!

22 is my favorite number.  First, of course, is that it's a cool repitition...the only one other than 11 that happens in a month.  Second, it's my birthday date as well as my mom, and a whole bunch of friends who were born on the 22nd of various months.  Unfortunately, my older brother was born on the 20th of his month...which not only messes with the lovely order but often makes me late with his birthday card!

I always favor the number 3... My birthday is 3/3, and I was born into a family of 3. I cuurently have 3 rescued pitbulls.  Most times I am multi-tasking doing 3 things at once. I also try to have 3 creative projects going at one time in different areas, so if I tire of one I have two others.... 3 ROCKS!!!!!-Jamie

My number that is significant to me is 29.  The reson is because that is the day I married my sweet husband.  We were only married 5 years when I lost him to cancer on 07/08/2007.  It was the happiest 5 years of my life.  Wish I could have them back.  I now quilt for the wounded warriors through my church.  Make little quilts 24" x 24" for the prenatel care unit for our local hospital.  I am 65 years old, live on a fixed income and  live alone.  I retired the end of September.  Right now I'm working on a quilt for the Sandy Hook victims and hoping to send it out next week.  I would love to win the Moda fabric.  

Thanks, Mary

Trying to decide on a favorite number was thought provoking as I have several, but the best is the 28th. My husband and I married on August 28th 1976 and we have traveled the roller coaster ride of life. Ours vows have been tested is evey way: rich and poor, sicknees and health, but our trust in each other has never faltered. To that someone is so honorable, so true is almost the stuff of fairy tales. I know that he will always stand by me even if I don't deserve it, but I do try to. Another 28th was our best Thanksgiving, our first daughter was born.

Oh my,  it's number 9......... the date of my birth, the month of my birth, and the year of my birth........and yet the story is weighted with the fact that it is the date and month of my mother's, uncle's, and cousin's birth.  We have had the delight for many years of celebrating that day together as family and the deep connection with each one in sharing this date in our lives.  In learning about significant number meaning, I have also found in the realm of Judeo-Christian faith  there are nine fruits and gifts of the Spirit, nine beatitudes, and other categories of nine items. Those are all qualities I desire to live out, patience, kindness, love, joy, peace, ......and the list goes on......

The number 30 is very significant to me.  When I was a teenager, I totally thought age 30 was basically "over the hill" and I could not envision what my life would be like at that age.  Well, age 30 came (and went) and it was a memorable age for me.  One of my children was born that year, My husband and I had our 10th wedding anniversary, I had my tonsils out (yikes, that hurt!), and I finally received my college degree!  So, whenever I think of my most memorable number, 30 always comes up!  Thanks for this opportunity!

Back in grade school whenever I was asked "What's your favorite number?" the answer was always eight.  If I had to pick a number between one and whatever, it was always 8. When in high school I became the oldest of 8 when my mom gave birth to my youngest sister, her last child.  My parents were married in 1948. And I married my husband in 1978.

I love zero (0), because the absence of anything defines the something it surrounds. Plus, 'nothing is too good to be true,' and "Nothing is more important than this day." (Goethe). The idea of the emphasized 'not one thing' juxtaposed with zero and meaning its exact opposite always charms and excites me.

I suppose I could say that 22 is my favorite becasue that is my birthday.   But no....or perhaps the day that one of my 3 children was born.   But no.....  Wedding anniversary......no.  The number I like has nothing to do with any of those reasons.

The number is 30!   Reason:  We had moved into a nice neighborhood.  I had 2 step children, one daughter of our own and a another child (son) in the oven.  I cooked, cleaned, shopped, organized, went to PTA and even held an office.  Worked part time.  I did it all.   But I was still in my twenties and considered the baby in the neighborhood.  I felt a little intimidated; not fully accepted.  The day I turned 30 I don't know what happened to me!!!  I felt totally different; no intimidation, more than adequate, and didn't care if I was "fully accepted" or not by the older ladies.  I felt like I had "arrived"!  This was the greatest feeling......so freeing and such confidence.  I liked me just the way I was.  I wasn't really any different.  I wasn't rude to any of the neighborhood ladies.  And I certainly didn't share my feelings.   But I definitely felt different. "Look out world.  I paid my dues and learned my lessons.,  Now here I come!"   I laugh every time I think of that birthday.

But 3 is kind of a special number and so is 7 and 3 times 7 is 21...But twenty one also has a special kind of rhythm to the words. To me it sounds precious and beautiful. Maybe because when we find someone we love we 2 become 1. The queen of England also has her real birthday on the 21st April...Lots of lovely twentyoneness!

Twenty three has always been a special number for me as that is our wedding anniversary.  In November this year will mark 55 years.  Time has passed so swiftly and I love my husband more now than I ever have.  He is not as spry or healthy as he used to be but he is still handsome and has a wonderful, positive attitude.  Such a blessing to me!  Thanks for allowing me to express my joy and happiness at this special time of our lives.  And thanks for the chance to win but I am already a winner!

The number 10 is special to me because a boyfriend from high school sent me an email on April 10 and now we are together again after more than 30 years.!

on 9 Feb 2013 5:15 PM

My special number is 7.  It began when I was 7 years old and my mother organized a gathering of seven little girls who were all seven years old.  We met on the seventh day of the month after school, and participated in an array of games and skill-building activities, had refreshments - which we often had made ourselves, and generally built a little community.  Among the activities that we enjoyed were simple sewing, embroidery, and other art projects.

It has always seemed that 7 is a lucky number for me, whether it was winning a raffle, a number in a game, or just a good day. If I am making a piece of art I often think in terms of 7 elements.   If I am asked to pick a number I always pick seven!  

Thank you for this great give-a-way!  I love winning fabric!

on 9 Feb 2013 5:18 PM

I don't have a certain day that is special although the first of each month always feels like a new beginning just like the beginning of each new year. Every day is wonderful regardless of its number. We have a chance to see, feel, do!

New fabrics, yarns, colors in whatever way we choose to use them!

Wonderful

The number five has been my favorite number from childhood. Probably had something to with growing up in a family of five, being a mother and wife in a family of five and now adding five members to our family, 2 daughters-in-law and 3 granddaughters whom I love to sew for. And my birthday falls in the fifth month. Five's a good number.

I like the number 13.  It gets a bad rap and is conventionally considered an unlucky number, based on the idea that there were 13 people at the Last Supper (Jesus and his 12 apostles).  I like to swim against the tide, I guess, and chose this for my personal lucky number.  Since there are 13 members in a witches' coven, and what were called witches were really just wise women who understood herbal medicine and childbirth, I'd like to reframe 13 as a positive number!

Twenty (20) is my favorite number for romantic reasons as my husband and I were married on that day.  But I also love the number because it seems to round to me; it's so complete in itself like our marriage.  I'm partial to circles in my art and the number 2 can be drawn, stitched, printed scrolly like a never-ending vine; Even spelled out the number twenty is simple, strong and complete.  Thanks for reminding me about this as Valentine's Day approaches.  As I sit in my heart studio today with 20 I shall play.  Thanks and Happy Valentines Day.  I just had an idea -- I'll make the number 20 for Valentine's Day and the "2" will be an intertwining, never-ending vine and the "0" will be in the shape of a heart!!  Kudos.  Terri

The 14 is a special day for a few reasons. One is that that is my Birthday. The second reason was life changing for because it was my birthday that my husband proposed to me at a supries party. He has been my rock, best friend, my everything and I would not change that for anything. Also this year will be out 28 anniversary and if you divide that by 2 you get 14!! Good luck to everyone!!!

It's always been lucky number 10 for me.   I was born on the 10th day of the month, I remember my 10th birthday and 10th year as being wonderful in my childhood, and most particularly winning two teddy bears at a Church fete with the ticket numbered 10!

I actually have 2 favorite numbers, 7 and 13. My husband also likes 13. When we got married, we did in July (7) 13th at 1:00 pm (13 hundred hours). If I need to choose a number, it's one of these two. Go 7, Go 13!

I've always been partial to the number 7.  Don't really remember why, but it stuck.  Love the fabric!

My number is 21.  I share the 21st and same month with an uncle for our birthday.  My  only daughter and husband share the 21st of May.  One of my sister's birthday and many friends is 21st.  We often win at games and contests with the number 21.

I became engaged on 2/14 so 14 is important to me. Then we were married 1 year & a day latter so 15 is also very romantic to me.

My favor number is #24 because (1) I'm a NASCAR fan and my most favorite driver's car number is 24; (2) also, my birthday date is "24".    Thank you for this chance to win the great giveaway.

15 is my favorite.  All of my children were born on the 15th with the exception of the one born during Leap Year.  He was the 14th :)

I have to agree with 14. My Mom was born on June 14,1930 and I was born on June 14,1959. My daughter had to be different, though,and came on May 22 1984. But I still like 14 best.

My lucky number is 19.  My two grandsons were both born on the 19th of a month, one in April, one in September.  They are exactly  19 months apart.. Each has 19 letters in their name. One was born at 5:19 PM, the other at 1:19 AM.  19 is without a doubt a very happy, special number for us!

My favorite number is 24:  we got married on June 24, 1967 and I was born on December 24, a lot of years BEFORE 1967 (let's just say I can now get the "Senior" discount at JoAnn's!).  Thanks for the great fabric giveway!  I always need more fabrics in my stash.

on 10 Feb 2013 10:51 PM

I'll choose 2 because what's more romantic than two people in love?

Disclaimer: This in no way denies the importance of children or pets to two people in love.  They have had great importance to us!

I think 2 is a great number but one I am very willing to change. I have two wonderful grandchildren but am always willing to make it 3 or 4 or even more.

The number 14 is important to me from several perspectives, my daughter was conceived on February 14th and my son was born on the 14th. Ironically when you put the dates of my kids together (my daughter was born on the second) you get 02 14 or Feb 14th. Kinda cool if you ask me.

A number which has been significant for my husband and myself is 8. My birthday falls in August, the 8th month of the year. I share this birthday month with my mother, grandmother, 2 nieces, 1 nephew, a brother in law, 2 aunts and a son. My husband and I married on the 26th of August and we have lived in 8 homes. All my 3 children were born in the 80's and my youngest was born in 1988  on the 1st day of the year. Last August was especially special as my mother turned 80 , I turned 60 and my eldest son turned 30. A very celebratory month. It's such a practical number too. An ideal number for a dinner party, and table settings. As well I am 8th generation Australian. Wow! Thank you for reminding me about the significance of this well shaped number. Happy Valentines day. Michelle, which has 8 letters!

My significant number is unlucky 13. I have found it very lucky. I met my husband on the 13th of August, 1975. Our son, who was due on my birthday, was born early on good Friday the 13th, 1979 and our municipal address is 13. The day we moved in our beautiful niece was born.

1989 is my favorite number.  It's the year that i took my first quilting class and became hooked!  Though I had to go back to work full time, I try to get in a few quilt projects in every year.

Ok. I guess our "lucky" number would have to be "6".. so here's a math riddle for all of you. My hubby and daughter both have a 6 in the year they were born and they are 40 years apart. I also have a 6 in the year I was born.  My daughter has a 6 in her current age. I have a 6 in the year I graduated. Can you figure out our current ages? If you need additional hints, see below:

Hint 1: My birth 2-digit year and graduation 2-digit year can be reversed.

Hint 2: My hubby and I are 12 years apart in age. Good luck and have fun! :D
