1 Year Anniversary Giveaway

What!?  Only a 1 year anniversary celebration!?  Well … I did technically start blogging back in November of 2008 for my crafty business.  But the year anniversary is celebrating my switch back to blogger from wordpress.  Every moment I was at wordpress I missed the comfort of blogger and I finally decided to come back.

I’m SO HAPPY I did!  It’s made blogging so much less stressful. I know what I’m doing. I  know how to add things to my sidebar.  I know I can EASILY find past blog posts!  I hope you have all enjoyed the move as well. 

In just one year I’ve had over 282,000 page views!  Not too shabby if I do say so myself!
And in celebration to this success – I’m having a GIVEAWAY! 

Let’s see what I’m all offering up!

GIVEAWAY!

  33. I love the seven quilts in the ROYGBIV colour range and because the finished quilts are 20" in each colour it is quite possible to complete one each month for the average person. Fantastic idea and a fun challenge. I understand about having to buy the ROYGBIV fabrics to make, or to incorporate a colour per block, because you want to present an exhibit of the chosen quilts in the end, and that would create a cohesive exhibit for public showing. Great idea.

  50. This was my first year of watching Project Quilting- and though I didn't finish any myself, I was so motivated and amazed by the entries!! (i've ordered my cherrywood bundle- let's see if I can Prism!) I also love how you take the craziest colors (in my mind) and when you put them together- they totally work. I think the creative process is so interesting. And of course, the cute girls! I have an 11 yo boy. Thanks for all you do to keep us creative!!!

  59. At first it was Project QUILTING, and now I just like seeing what you're up to. It also helps me expand my palette, as you use fabrics and colors that I think "ugh" when I see the blocks sometimes, but then LOVE the finished quilts. The give aways are nice too of course :)

    ReplyDelete
  60. I get so inspired seeing all of your beautiful & artistic quilts. You are so creative!

    ReplyDelete
  61. I like your blogs, website, and face book page there is so much information and also you are one busy lady! Between kids, an orchard, family, life, running a household, etc. it is an inspiration to others. If you can do all of this and still make quilts, then I have no excuse, ha ha. It is fresh, lively, and always something different and new to see and learn. Thanks for sharing.
