Fours Years Ago

On August 26, 2006, I wrote my very first post and ventured into this wonderful community of creativity.  To celebrate this event, I thought I would have a giveaway.  I bit early for my anniversary but school will be starting soon, which means softball and other events and more than likely the anniversary will just pass by in a whirlwind of activities.

The giveaway you ask.  A lapsize quilt I made earlier in the year.


If you are interested in winning this quilt, leave a comment by August 6th and I will draw a winner on August 7th.  This is a way to say thank you for all your comments on my blog and inspiration on your blogs.

  7. I am NOT taking part in your draw - it is a lovely, lovely quilt but it would cost a fortune to send to Denmark. :-) I just want to say that I love your blog and check in every day for your posts and your blogroll. I hope you'll continue to enjoy blogging!

  39. Congrats on 4 years! I wish I had found you at the beginning, but I'm glad to have found you at all! I love your podcast and blog, and enjoy all your posts, even the non-sewing ones. (Your garden is goregous!) Finding your podcast really rejuvenated my interest in sewing and I anxiously await each new episode while enjoying the archived episodes. Keep up the good work (and feel free to send me that goregous lap quilt LOL).
