An Anniversary and a Give-Away


Four years ago, I started this blog! I had no idea what I was doing. I just started writing, and my four family members plus a couple of friends read it.
It’s a long road since then…and I have loved, enjoyed, savored every piece of blogging.

Things I Would Do Differently:
1. Have a different blog name
2. Change the layout and style of blog

Things I Would Keep the Same:
1. My “special” features, like Mish-Mosh Monday.
2. A little more eclectic blog than all 100% quilting
3. My style of writing
4. I love all the pictures I put in the blog. It takes a load of time, but the result is worth the effort.

I overdid it when I put this picture in a post about the Log Cabin I was making for my DS & DDIL. I had posted about this quilt so many times, that I decided to be a little artistic in this point. In the nine months since I posted it, that picture has grabbed the attention of 2067 people! I know it’s because of the picture! Just to prove it, my next highest viewed post has 592 people.

I have been wanting to do a giveaway for a long time. I was waiting until I had a certain number of viewers, but since I’ve been absent from blogging for six months, I don’t know where I was then. Having a fourth anniversary of blogging is a BIG event, so I'm happy to announce!


There are two splendid prizes:

For the first place winner:
Flowering Favorites, a book by those spectacular Becky Goldsmith and Linda Jenkins of Piece O’ Cake.

For the second place winner:
10 at least “fat” quarters in your favorite color. The quarters can be skinny or fat. But it will be at least a quarter of a yard. In the picture of the book above, you can see a sample of blues I have.

To enter, write a comment telling me what your favorite color is and what is your favorite type of quilting.

Just for your random facts file, my favorite color is turquoise and I love to quilt traditional, scrap and string quilts.

Good luck to all! I am so excited to offer my FIRST giveaway.

Winners will be announced on the first day of December!

Winners will be chosen by Random.org.


  1. Can't pass up a giveaway. My favorite color is RED! I like any type of style, but am pretty much a traditional quilter -- with a twist.

  2. My fav colour is blue, and shade :) I am only a new quilter/sewer, so I am still learning and therefore I love an experimental style !!!!

  3. My favorite color is purple, and I love simple quilts.

  4. I love all colors and I especially love scrappy quilts! Happy Blogiversary!

  5. This year the Color of choice has been Orange for some reason. I love the way you can shade into red or yellow with it. Happy Blogiversy...bloging bday...err blogging versity...you know what I mean

  6. You know I love paper piecing and red! Happy Blogiversary. Four years ... I guess I started just a little before you.

  7. I'm so happy you left a comment so I could come and read your blog. I haven't had time to read or comment much, but your Thanksgving post touched me. What a wonderful gift her life is.
    Now, as for the giveaway:) If you looked in my stash tan, brown and red are what I have the most of. Why does it seem I never have the correct shade of red I'm looking for?! LOL Blue is my favorite color in life though. I make mostly reproduction quilts. Seems I never get tired of Civil War era quilts!! Happy weekend.


I love comments. They make me smile and feel warm and fuzzy. To show you my appreciation, I try to answer everyone's comment. :)
