Blog Anniversary Giveaway

Every year I seem to miss my blog anniversary and this year was no exception. I started blogging in April 2006. I have never been much of a journal keeper but somehow I have kept up blogging and have enjoyed sharing my creativity with the blog-o-sphere.

Taking a look back.....

I have just over 300 posts

Shared more of my creative side than I ever thought I would

Had two children, Alex who will be 4 in June and Abby turned one last week.

Had a quilt at PIQF

Had a quilt in Quilter's Newsletter

Took up knitting

Published my own beading pattern

Received a Best in Show for one of my beaded quilts

Published a free knitting pattern

And, best of all, met and made some great creative blog friends.

To celebrate 4 years I will be giving away special gift...

Included will be a copy of my Bead Embroidery Stitches pdf., a vintage fabric print, hand dyed silk ribbon, hand dyed pearl cotton and a selection of beads.


To enter, leave a comment by Sunday May 9 and I will draw the winner next week.
