It all started with Bonnie at Quiltville - I'd been drooling over her patterns for some time and then she started to add the instructions from Tonya for her free-pieced letters. On from that there were lots of others I loved to read, Jeanne, Dawn, Mel, Fiona to name but a few.
So I decided the time had come to start my own blog primarily to be able to leave comments on other peoples blogs but once hooked I realise what a proper old windbag I really am and here we are one whole year down the track and almost 250 posts later
What a lot of lovely people I catch up with now most days. It is generally human nature to want to communicate and what other way would we get to 'speak' to people from all over the globe.
So I decided to do a giveaway for my first bloggiversary
All you need to do is put a comment at the end of this post and I'll draw someone's name from the hat and post it off to the lucky recipient later in the week.
Lily commented that I've not really taken this quilt to my heart as I've been working on it despite the fact that quite a few of you have liked it
However today, when we had a hiatus in the very heavy rain we've been having of late, I took the opportunity to hang it out on the washing line for its final photocall.
And now I can see it in all its glory you know I really think it's grown on me
I hope he gets to enjoy lots of lovely naps beneath it
And now it's finished I can go back to playing with things of my colour choice - much more fun!
PS - a very happy belated Mother's Day to all those of you around the world who celebrated it this last weekend - of course here in the UK ours is long gone, back during Lent, and most of us would probably say that we're privileged to be mums, surrogate mums, aunties, grannies and daughters everyday - even when our offspring and/or parents are at their most trying :o)
