Over 200.000 visits and nearly 600 posts!!!!

Oh my goodness!!
Some time over night while I was asleep, I had the 200.000 visitor, and I am just 6 away for my 600 post!

Well yesterday I had a funny looking mole cut off the instep of my left foot, and I was sitting here this morning, sore and feeling a little sorry for myself, when I noticed that the stat metre had jumped over the 200.000 over night ......so to celebrate and as a little thank you, I would like to have a drawing and make something special for one of my blogging friends, for your support and the lovely friendships I have made along the way.

Now, I'm not sure how to go about this, but if you would like to leave me a comment, just tell me your favourite colour and mention how you came by my blog.....Next Sunday evening on the 11th here in AU, I will get the little girl over the road to draw out a name, and I shall post it here on Monday morning...
Thank you for coming by and Good luck....


  1. Wow! That is quite a milestone...Congratulations :)

    My favorite color is purple, but I can't remember how I found your blog. I always like to check out the blogs of those who leave comments on my favorites, so that's probaby how I found you :)

  2. Congratulations! that is quite a milestone - 200,000 visitors. I too love purple and I found you from our list. I really enjoy reading your blog and seeing your work. I'd love to see it in person someday!

  4. Congratulations! You have a great website. Thanks for sharing so much with us. You inspire! Keep up the good work!

  5. 600 posts! You gossip you! LOL

    I followed a link from Pam Kelloggs blog one day, it came here, and I've been a regular ever since. I was reading your blog long before I began one of my own.

    I hope your foot feels better soon.

  6. You know Julia, I've been visiting your blog for so long now, that I really can't remember how I first came across it. Maybe from southern cross crazies? I have a link to you on my blog and yours is one of my first stops, along with sharon b, Chloe's place and Kenmaur's corner. I love all of your work. It's just so beautiful. Thank you for all the wonderful tutorials and being an inspiration to so many. Keep off that foot. Hope it heals quickly.

  7. I think I found your blog by following a link from Allie's. I like all colors EXCEPT pink. But I'm sure if you made something in pink, I would probably like it (LOL) (Lesa)

  11. Hi Julia, I hope your foot is feeling much better.
    I first heard of you through Linda B and seeing your name in magazines. I've followed your fabulous blogs, tutorials and embroideries and can't remember when I actually started.

  17. Congratulations, Julia, on your beautiful blog, & your lovely postings. I have forgotten how I first found you, but I fell in love with your beautiful work, & had to keep returning.
    I love pinks & creams.

  18. HI Julia, congrats on reaching such an impressive number of visitors. You're obviously well read (pun intended. lol)

    I visit often because you've just got a really great blog. Love the pretties that you've done.

    I love all colors. I think each one has its own story to tell :-)

  19. Congrats on the milestone. I can't remember how I came to your blog. It might have been through SharonB's blog, or from a post you made to a crazy quilt list, or from surfing. Now I have it in my bloglines. My favorite color is green.

  20. Hi Julia, Congratulations!!! How did I find your Blog? Oh Boy, like nearly everyone else 'I don't remember' probably through all my crazy quilting friends and going from one blog to another. I tend to get lost in Blog-land and don't come out for ages. It's no wonder you've have so many hits... it's full of so much inspriation, and you tutes are wonderful. Have great weekend - Oh! my favorite colours are the mauve shades
    cheers - Faye

  21. Julia, what a sweet thing to do. I came to your blog as always to see your beautiful work. My favorite color is burgundy or pink.

  22. Hmmm... I think I must have found you through SharonB... or maybe Linda... I'm not sure 'cause I've been reading you for awhile and the older memories tend to fall out the back of my head after awhile... ;0) My favorite color is ummm... teal... no, turquoise... maybe purple? Love your blog!

  23. I am sure I am late for the drawing, but thought I'd leave a comment anyway. Let's see my favorite color is generally blue, but I love purple and pink just as well.
    I first found your blog many months ago when I was doing a search for a hussif and your blog came up in the search and ever since I've been hooked. I so want to start crazyquilting and learning silk ribbon embroidery, but in the meantime I enjoy drooling over all of the wonderful pieces you create. I do have several blocks ready to be embellished--I just need to take the plunge and start stitching on one of them. LOL! Thank you for such a beautiful blog and I hope your foot has a quick recovery.
