Three Years

I started this blog THREE years ago today! Wow, that feels amazing to me. I’m not a big talker, but I do love to write, especially letters to friends. So naturally, that’s what I have been doing here for the past three years.

I continue to love talking with you about fabric, sewing, patchwork, my bag obsession, making quilts, my design and illustration classes, gardening, farmers markets, and the various adventures I take in life. Hope I haven’t bored you or babbled on too much!

I just wanted to drop in to say Happy Day to everyone, and to thank you again for stopping by to see what’s happening around here. I especially appreciate those of you who have reached out to become friends because that’s what this is all about – these fabulous connections we’ve made.

“It’s friends we meet along life’s path who help us appreciate the journey.” … quote from my good friend Tami.

A Celebration Giveaway

I have officially passed the 300th post on this blog! (322 to be exact) I also had a two-year blog anniversary (last November).  I would like to celebrate YOU, the wonderful blogging and sewing friends I have connected with through this blog.

I have been finding my way over those past two years, blogging about my passions in life, making connections, building a network. I love to share my sewing and art projects, and I appreciate getting such great feedback from all of you. In the midst of my favorite things, I’ve had fun talking with you about baking, gardening, outdoor adventures, and travels.

I was thinking someone out there might want this mini quilt I made especially for this giveaway. I used two lovely fabrics I got from Randi, and Dana’s instructions for making one pinwheel block. I put a cream border around it, and embroidered this saying “grow friends like flowers” around the block. It measures approximately a 13-inch square. Quilted, bound, and ready for delivery to your house!

Leave a comment here by Saturday, March 27 at 10:00 p.m. CST to be entered into my giveaway. Feel free to spread the word, if you want to. I will announce the winner on Sunday, March 28. Thank you for being my friends!
