My Blogoversary Giveaway..and I missed it!

Remember these..Aunt Millie blocks in Kaffe...I thought these might be a great giveaway for my 6th Blogoversary...
I know I'll never finish this quilt, seems a shame for these beautiful blocks to be tucked away in the closet.
I needle turned hand appliqued these in Kaffe fabrics onto a lovely tiny pale blue dot fabric...would be lovely as a small wall-hanging or four gorgeous cushions..16" blocksCan't believe I've been blogging for 6 years...1323 posts (chatterbox)...919,749 visits...really!.... it's been an amazing journey...
Teena in Toronto wished me a Happy Blogoversary in her comment. a couple of days ago, it didn't click straight away then...but checking this morning I see it was just 3 days ago on the 7th...

Thank you all so much for following me, the friendships made, swaps, fun and happy times and just being here in cyber-land...
You have no idea how much blogging has helped me get through some incredibly tough times...times I don't talk about on my blog....just being able to come here and lose myself in my blog, blog surf, get inspired by the wonderful work out there..
Who would think that I can travel the world through a little box plugged into the wall and never leave home..

No special hoops to jump through, just leave a comment...one entry per person.  I will draw a winner next Monday evening 6 pm my time..

Good Luck.....♥

Edit...please help!....Tried to add numbers to the comments, but they ended up on my blog posts instead ...

  30. Happy Anniversary! I have to admit I come here often to see what you are doing but have never left a comment. I first got here by looking for needlebooks and used your pattern. Now seems like a good time to comment since I'm drooling over your giveaway. - Cathy L

  31. WOW...6 years is very impressive. Congratulations on that!!! I've only been blogging for about 3 years, but I consider myself lucky that I found your blog soon after starting as you always show such BEAUTIFUL things. This is a wonderful prize for a giveaway...especially for those of us who aren't so good at needle-turn applique (ME...for one)!!!

    ReplyDelete
  32. It's amazing how the years, the posts, and the blog visits add up. I too sometimes think about how much of myself (each of us does this) I put into blogging. It's really a sort of on-line diary, though I don't feel comfortable sharing as much as some people do in their posts. What fun for you to have persevered for so long! And thanks for the pretty giveaway. Owning some of your beautiful handwork would be a gift.

  33. Congratulations on your Blogaversary! Your quilt blocks are so gorgeous! I would certainly welcome the chance to own some of your lovely handwork!
