Guess what? Today is my 3rd Blogiversary. I know you’ve had this day marked on your calendar, waiting with baited breath for this significant milestone to arrive. Just kidding. Even I almost forgot. Last year I totally forgot about it, and this year, by sheer luck, I happened to think to check before it came around, so I thought it would be fun to have a little giveaway!
First of all, thank you so much for visiting this corney blog about quilting. Thank you for the kind comments and encouragement that you leave. I will be honest – some days blogging stresses me out. I worry about getting my pictures to look the way I want them to in my mind, I often kick myself for writing blog posts late at night when my brain has already shut off for the day and then worry that what I wrote sounded whiney or incoherent, and I’m often plagued by that nasty, un-healthy ‘comparison/inadequacy’ menace to all bloggers. Throw in the guilt I often feel about not always having the time I’d like to respond to every comment or meet everyone’s requests (I’m a chronic “pleaser” so this can get rough), not to mention the guilt and worrying whether my time at the computer is the best use of my time.
BUT I’m so grateful for the nice feedback you give me regarding my hobby, for supporting my little etsy shop, and for the fun opportunities that have come since starting this blog. By far my favorite part of this adventure has been the great people I’ve met (some times in real life and sometimes in cyberspace) since jumping into the blogosphere. That is by far the funnest part – you awesome people!
So to thank you, I have a few giveaways with no-strings attached. Thanks to the generosity of Amanda Murphy and Robert Kaufman fabrics I have 2 Ten-Square (42 10″ squares) collections and 2 Roll-ups (42 2.5″ strips) of Amanda’s newest collection, Veranda to share. I’ll be giving away one set of both and one of each. (see top photo.)
And I wanted to give away something totally “Diary of a Quilter.” So I’ve got a little bundle put together of an I-spy charm-pack, some American Jane pennant triangles and a few goodies I collected at Market last spring. This means we’ll have 4 winners! First winner gets first pick of the prizes, and so on.
Leave one comment until Friday, October 7, midnight MST. I’ll randomly pick a winner sometime over the weekend and announce on Monday.
Thanks again for being my “peeps” in blogland! Mwah!
GIVEAWAY CLOSED. Winners are: Amy, luckymom, WandaFish, and Funky Kim. Congratulations ladies! I’ll be contacting you!
