  6. Mechanical all the way. Love the clicky noise!

  7. Give me a normal wooden pencil anyday and I'm a happy gal - I always seem to snap the lead easily on those mechanical pencils!

    ReplyDelete

  9. I prefer the wooden pencil but the kids in my sons class all use the mechanical ones. Gorgeous fabric, looks like a Wee Woodland Wonderland!

  10. I am a mechanical pencil girl, if I used regular pencils I would be constantly sharpening them to get the point I want!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Regular .... it's so satisfying to sharpen them.

    ReplyDelete
  12. The yellow one definitely. There's nothing nicer than that just sharpened point hitting the paper. The fabric is lovely!

    ReplyDelete
  13. I love the fabric! I love yellow pencils!!!!!! But they have to have sharp points! Sometimes I use the black wood one too! Thanks for the chance!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Mechanical ones, as I can't ever find my sharpener for the standard ones. I can't believe it's time for back to school shopping already!!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Def the mechanical one--then I don't have to keep sharpening! Love these fabrics!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Mechanical, usually, but there's something special about a freshly sharpened yellow pencil.

    ReplyDelete
  17. MMmm., fabric is fall, my fav time of year...woodland it is...now pencils, mechanical, to the point I wear them out..I have been using PHD brand so much so that Paper Mate knows me by name for ordering so many. So what was your POINT? for knowing that...lol
    great questions always..blessings msamm

    ReplyDelete
  18. I like the yellow one..but what I really like is a soft artist pencil, or maybe a General's Sketch and Wash. I discovered artist pencils when I got into painting and now I love them best.

  19. i like mechanical pencils, they write so much smoother and clearer. thanks

  20. I like wood ones........ I love the smell when you sharpen them. It brings back fond memories of my youth... :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Mechanical - hand down! No need to search for the sharpener.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I definitely prefer the regular No. 2 pencil. I actually don't like the mechanical ones at all. Fourth graders can spend an inordinate amount of time refilling, finding lead, etc. etc.!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Oh, I love this fabric and would love to win a charm pack! I prefer the wooden pencils only because it reminds me of when I was young and lots of happy memories. Thanks for the chance!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I am a mechanical pencil kinda girl. I love the always sharp tip.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Don't use pencils much, but when I do, I prefer the regular ones...but only if they're sharpened. Thanks for the chance!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I always use a wooden pencil. Love the way it smells coming out of the sharpener. I use a mechanical pencil when I travel so I always have a sharp point!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I actually despise mechanical pencils because they always seem to break -- not just the lead but the pencil itself. You go to write, and the lead pushes back inside. I do prefer the regular pencils -- but I also like them to be a color other than yellow. Oh, goodness, who knew I was so passionate about such a subject as pencils! LOL.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I prefer mechanical pencils. The fabrics are so yummy!

  29. I like wooden pencils better, but it's so hard to get a good sharpener any more. I remember in elementary school there was a good quality sharpener bolted to the wall of every classroom...I wish I had one of those in my house because I've converted to mechanical pencils simply to have a good point on the lead when I write. Thanks for a chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I like both ^^
    Thanks for the chance.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Yellow wooden pencils are awesome! These fabrics are soooo cute!

  32. I love the yellow wooden pencils! Brings me back to my younger days!!!

  33. I used to use the mechanical one when I was in school, they last longer and I only had to carry 1 of them with me. Now that I don't need to tote pencils around I prefer the yellow wooden ones because the lead doesn't break as easily. Thanks for the giveaway!!!

    ReplyDelete
  34. ha! I read the title and immediatley inserted "wonderland" and didn't realize it until you pointed it out. I love mechanical pencils but only the .5's I can't stand anythgin thicker

    ReplyDelete
  35. These days I'm into mechanical, but just because I discovered Jetpens just yesterday and have been droooooling over some of those Japanese beauties... (http://www.jetpens.com/).

    Thanks for the woodland wonderland :-)

  36. See, I've been mechanical pencil for a long time, but lately I'm going old school with the #2.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I'm a mechanical pencil kind of gal...been that way forever. It drives me crazy to have to sharpen pencils otherwise...probably from fears of when I was little to get up from class and sharpen at front of teacher's desk with all eyes on me. Oh how I hated that.

    ReplyDelete
  38. this fabric is SOOOO cute!!!!

    I personally prefer yellow pencils, while I am not a fan of sharpening them I do not break them as often. Mechanical lead is just to weak for my strong hands ;)

    ReplyDelete
  39. Great fabric! I like mechanical pencils.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I used to be a mechanical pencil lover, but have gone back to regular wood pencils and now don't know how I ever went the other way. I can't stand how the lead breaks on mechanicals.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Mechanical...always sharp and ready to go!!!
    Love this fabric!!! (dmifflin@netrover.com)

    ReplyDelete
  42. Definitely mechanical for me, I don't have to search for the pencil sharpener.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Definitely mechanical, but with #2 thick lead in it :)

    And oh how I love the blues :)

  44. Susch cute, cute fabrics.

    I am a regular yellow one because I always break the leads in my mechanicals.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I prefer mechanical. And I love this cute fabric.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I prefer pens ... lol. But if it has to be a pencil, then a good sharp #2 regular pencil - made from real wood is my preference. I like the black ones - I think they're called Mirado or something like that :)

  48. Definitely regular yellow pencils. But I am outnumbered around my house by all the mechanical pencil lovers.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Oops! Sorry, I screwed up and forgot my email address. For some reason, I do not like mechanical pencils. I love good old yellow ones, but only if they are very sharp. I can't stand dull ones. Picky aren't I? Love the fabric!

  50. Good ole #2 wood pencil for me please. I really, really dislike mechanical ones for some reason. Marla mkb68@swbell.net

    ReplyDelete
  51. Yellow ones with nice sharp points!

    ReplyDelete
  52. I used to love colored pencils, back when I designed quilts on a graph pad. But since using the EQ computer programs, I no longer find a use for them.

    I do like a GOOD yellow pencil......complete with add-on eraser !

    Thanks for entering me in your giveaway !

    ReplyDelete
  53. I'd have to say that I prefer mechanical pencils when I'm crafting. This is probably because they are easier to erase & I make so many 'adjustments' when I'm planning something.

    Thanks for the giveaway - I love the turtle's giant shell :)

    ReplyDelete
  54. Absolutely, a plain old pencil. I hate constantly fixing the lead on a mechanical pencil, and when a regular pencil breaks I get the satisfaction of sharpening it!

    ReplyDelete
  55. I like mechanical pencils because you always get a nice sharp point :) But "real" pencils feel sturdier to me, so there's a trade off.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I good, smooth writing No. 2 pencil makes me happy! But mine are Black Warriors and not yellow. lol

  57. I love regular pencils, I like sharpening them and wearing them down! I HATE mechanical pencils, the nib always breaks for me!

    ReplyDelete
  58. I prefer a good ole' #2 pencil. I press too hard for mechanical pencils, the lead always breaks.

    I would love to have the charm pack!!

    ReplyDelete
  59. I like mechanical pencils best, because you don't have to get up and sharpen them.

  60. Mechanical all the way! I especially like the white background piece. Thanks Corrie.

    ReplyDelete
  61. I live mechanical for writting on paperr, but the old fashioned #2 for writting and tracing for quilting.
    I love the charm packs, It would make a very cute quilt.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Prefer the yellow regular pencils, until I drop them, then I should just stick with mechanical pencils.

    ReplyDelete
  63. That's a tough question, I like both. I like the feel of a regular pencil but I also like the 'always sharp' of a mechanical pencil. But if I was forced to choose, I'd say mechanical.....I think.

    ReplyDelete
  64. I still love ozz by the same designer. so cute!

    ReplyDelete
  65. can i say both? i use both alot. i don't think i prefer one over the other.

    btw, CUTEST fabric EVER! i loved keiki's tweet tweet, and now this!

    ReplyDelete
  66. i prefer regular #2 pencils...but not nearly as much as those striped fabrics!!

    ReplyDelete
  67. There is nothing better than the sharp point on a brand new, all wood, number 2, yellow pencil. Oh the things my mind thinks to write!! Like, designing a new table topper with the charm squares! Thanks for the giveaway! As always you guys have a great site!!

    ReplyDelete
  68. I'm all about mechanical because the yellow pencil erases break off too easily! There are few things more annoying as a yellow pencil with no eraser!

    ReplyDelete
  69. Give me agood old yellow HB pencil please!
    Cute fabrics.

    Carolyn

    ReplyDelete
  70. I hate mechanical pencils. And no, that's not too strong a word. I ALWAYS break them and the lead falls out...every, single, time!

    ReplyDelete
  71. It seems like everyone has an opinion on this one...can I say that I have no preference? If I can find a writing tool in my house, I use it. Pen, pencil (mechanical or wooden), marker, hi-lighter, sometimes even a crayon.

    ReplyDelete
  72. I'm more than happy drawing or writing with both! However, the portablility of having a mechanical pencil and not having to sharpen it weighs out on the go! ;)

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  73. I must say that if I had the choice I would choose a wooden pencil. I like the way it feels to hold a #2 when I write. I even like having to sharpen them. The only bad thing about them is when the eraser is gone and you're only half way done with the pencil. Thanks for the Thursday fun and cute fabric.

  77. I am a mechanical pencil kind of girl. Love that fabric!

    ReplyDelete
  78. Mechanical pencils are so cool, but I wind up losing the lead. So, I mostly use the regular yellow #2 kind.
    This fabric is darling! Sure would like to have some to make a gift for a cousin's new baby boy!

    ReplyDelete
  79. What a wonderful new collection. At home, there is nothing like a newly sharpened #2 yellow pencil. Outside the house, a mechanical is the best.

    ReplyDelete
  80. I dislike yellow pencils with a passion to be honest.

    Love the fabric, amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  81. Hands down, mechanical pencils. Save the trees for the woodland creatures - ha ha ha!!

    ReplyDelete
  82. Mechanical all the way! I love a sharp pointy pencil. If I use the yellow ones I am constantly sharpening them to get that beloved point :)

    ReplyDelete
  83. Ooh I love this fabric!

    I love both, but I am too "uptight" of a writer/sketcher and I break the dainty lead in a mechanical pencil, so old school yellow it is for me.

    ReplyDelete
  84. *squee!* Those animals are so adorable!

    Pencil preference - old fashioned wooden pencils. There's just something about them that make anything you do seem "real." I just bought myself a new wooden pencil from Office Depot last night, except it's not yellow -- it's black (with blackened wood core), and instead of an eraser it has a pretty jewel glued on top.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Mechanical pencils is my choice. I like the ones with a heavier lead in them. Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  86. Mechanical pencils: always pointy!

    ReplyDelete
  87. I am all about the mechanical pencil! I only use normal pencils if I have no other choice, they drive me nuts!

    ReplyDelete
  88. i absolutely love mechanical pencils...since i don't have one of those old school house pencil sharpeners, i don't want to sharpen a pencil any other way...mechanical....rocksssss....

    ReplyDelete
  89. I love mechanical pencils...they are always sharp & have extra lead.

    ReplyDelete
  90. I like the yellow. Just sad that the eraser always wears out to soon. The fabric is darling.

    ReplyDelete
  91. Regular yellow wooden pencils! Freshly sharpened. Love it!

    ReplyDelete
  92. regular for me. The eraser and lead never last long in the mechanical ones for me, although it is entertaining to click!

    ReplyDelete
  93. Hmmmm it's a difficult question for me, because I like both of them, I'm always using a pencil, but when I like to write with different shapes then I use the mechanical pencil!!!

    ReplyDelete
  94. oh... it has to be a good old yellow number two wooden pencil! Nothing smells better than a freshly sharpened #2 :)

    ReplyDelete
  95. I prefer a regular pencil however not a yellow one, rather one with sparkles and a dog head wearing a tiara stuck on the eraser end.
    Pretty fancy eh?
    that's just how I roll :)

    ReplyDelete
  96. Mechanical pencils are the best. Wee Woodland is pretty wonderful also.

    ReplyDelete
  97. Due to the lack of adequate pencil sharpeners (cause nothing bothers me more than a dull pencil), I prefer mechanical pencils. :o)

    ReplyDelete
  98. I am all about regular old HB #2's!! I love a newly sharpened point (OCD leftover from childhood) and the way it feels in my hand as well as in my head (if I'm writing, I feel like an author, if I'm tracing I'm an artist)

    ReplyDelete
  99. I love mechanical pencils since they are always sharp. I was a math major in college and always needed a sharp pencil at hand.

    ReplyDelete
  100. Mechanical pencils give a nice clean line. I give them to my second graders. Happy teacher.

    ReplyDelete
  101. I'm such a school supply nerd! My favorite kind of pencil is a Dixon Ticonderoga #2!

    ReplyDelete
  102. Wee Woodland is outrageously adorable. I actually dislike pencils and always have. I press too hard and have always snapped the lead. Give me a nice gel pen anyday.

    ReplyDelete
  103. I love the good old #2 with a nice sharpened point. love this line of fabric too!

    ReplyDelete
  104. I've always preferred the mechanical pencils.

    ReplyDelete
  105. my kids love mechanical but i love them both

    ReplyDelete
  106. I love the wooden pencil,but here in Aussie they're red not yellow :) Barb.

  107. i'm a wooden pencil person. i keep a bunch of them in a container on my desk along with a small round sharpener. thanks for this great giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  108. Mechanical pencil. Things need to be nice and sharp when I write them.

    ReplyDelete
  109. I like mechanical pencils. The point is always sharp. You don't have to always be looking for a pencil sharpner.

    ReplyDelete
  110. Mechanical for SURE! I hate, hate, hate having to sharpen pencils!

    ReplyDelete
  111. I am so partial to mechanical. I like the softer lead that's used in them and NO sharpening.....

    ReplyDelete
  112. I have never been able to find a good sharpener so I prefer mechanical pencils. I have assorted lovely color pencils and when I sharpen them the wood always snaps and a bit of the color pencil comes out. Arrgghh!

  113. a very sharp yellow wooden pencil.

    ReplyDelete
  114. I use both but prefer a good old fashioned yellow one. Something so sturdy about it. They take a good sharp point. I always stock up this time of year and have a couple of mason jars full.

    ReplyDelete
  115. I love regular pencils. Great fabric.

    ReplyDelete
  116. I like the regular yellow pencil. Don't know why!

    Count me in on your giveaway - such cute stuff!

    ReplyDelete
  117. I prefer old fashioned number 2 quality yellow pencils with a good eraser and sharp point. I'm a "mathy" geek and now a sudoku junky. I need the wee woodlands yardage fabric to make a happy baby quilt. Cross my fingers for a prize!

    ReplyDelete
  118. I like the regular yellow ones. I keep breaking the lead in the other kind and end up with tiny little pieces that won't stay in the pencil.

    ReplyDelete
  119. Oh what a cute line of fabric.
    I so much more prefer the old fashioned yellow pencil. Love to sharpen them ...;)

    ReplyDelete
  120. I like the mechanical ones because I don't have to sharpen them. Love the fabric.

    lsandes@comcast.net

    ReplyDelete
  121. I like the mechanical pencils because they keep a finer line longer and are easy to reload--I don't like to sharpen!

    ReplyDelete
  122. Such cute fabric. I prefer mechanical pencils.

    ReplyDelete
  123. Cute fabric! I insist on using the old fashioned yellow pencils. I press too hard when I write and the lead on the mechanical ones (we always called them eversharps) always breaks on me. My students at school always had mechanical ones and thought my regular pencils were as out-of-date as cassette tapes.

    ReplyDelete
  124. Personally I love a good ol' yellow pencil! I find the mechanical ones break too often and I never quite know when I'm about to run out of lead.

    Love love love the Wee Woodland - it's awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  125. I only use mechanical pencils. I love that I can click new lead into place without having to fight a pencil sharpener to try to evenly sharpen a wooden pencil. ;) dsb448@att.net

    ReplyDelete
  126. Yellow #2 Pencils for me. I write too hard to use the mechanical ones. I loooove this collection. hotquilter7@yahoo.com

    ReplyDelete
  127. This is a funny question! I love both for different tasks... at home it is the old fashioned pencil that needs to be ultra sharp but at work I prefer my very, very special mechanical pencil.

  128. weird question, but great giveaway!!

    old school- plain old yellow...

    ReplyDelete
  129. I love mechanical pencils - German made ones in fun colours are the best ... and I also have a soft spot for unpainted ecologically "green" pencils. The unpainted wood feels nice in your hand ... Thank you for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  130. Mechanical pencils seem like such a luxury to me. I guess I'm old school...#2 yellow. You can't go wrong with that!

    ReplyDelete
  131. Love those #2 yellow pencils. The fabric is so cute.

    ReplyDelete
  132. Definitely the old fashioned yellow wooden pencil. They just smell so nice when you sharpen them, and you can get a really sharp point, always important.

    ReplyDelete
  133. Oh definitely after my metalsmithing & design background in college I would have to choose mechanical pencils; the lines are just so precise (and easy to erase!).

    ReplyDelete
  134. It depends on what I'm doing, I like the precision of the mechanical but I like the softness of the pencil, so I choose both! Love the colors in that material, and that turtle!! So cute :)

    ReplyDelete
  135. Yellow pencils.........love the sharpened point makes everything sharp and crisp and when I was a kid ........it was always an excuse to get out of my chair and wander around for a bit.........

    ReplyDelete
  136. Yellow old fashioned pencils for sure! But the good quality ones! and really sharp too. Not messy. (I'm a teacher, so I have "higher" standards! *wink*)
    And today is my birthday! so maybe my luck will turn out today and I may win one of your giveaway! That would be neat!!! thanks!
