An anniversary, of sorts...


Okay, so it was really last week.

My first Blogaversary!

I thought with this momentous occasion I'd do a draw. All ya gotta do to enter is to comment on this post, and I'll put your name in the draw and send out this little collection to the lucky winner. Draw will be made on Sunday, Sept. 23 in the morning. Please enter your comment by Saturday, midnight (there you go...all you lurkers and night owls...here's your chance!)

The prize consists of a Magic Tiles pattern by Kathleen Bissett, the book Four Blocks and More by Linda Giesler Carlson, three fat quarters and a set of 8 blank greeting cards of my own design with envelopes. I'll cover the shipping!

It's just a little thank you to all of you who have been so welcoming, so kind, and have kept reading throughout the year.

(philosophical part...feel free to skip!)
When I started the blog I thought it would be a good place to keep track of my own quilting development...and it has. It's become much more, though. Who knew that having this place to post would motivate me so well to start exploring fibre so much more than I had before? I have always done needlecraft of some kind, but having this place, this opening to a kind of dialogue, has helped me to push my own boundaries, take classes, challenge myself more than I ever imagined. It's thanks to you.

And it's allowed me to meet people I never would have met. A couple in person! Many through correspondence, through generous trades and gifts. It's a pretty neat-o venue that can bring people with passions in common together every day like this. I've belonged to lists, but this is so much more personal.

So thanks. Thanks for all the comments, the input, the encouragement. It has meant a lot to me.

Happy stitching,

Lisa

I too started my blog as a record of my studio work, and have found blogland a great encourager of experimentation and lots of new friends.

Happy blogiversary! Now say that three times really fast! I have only been blogging about half a year and have no idea if anyone really reads my blog much, there is only an occasional comment. I just joined two blogrings so maybe I will make the friends you have...........one can only hope. So sign me up for your drawing!
