I have made some amazing friends from the blog and even meet some of them in person - Regina, Jennifer, Amy, Ruth and Judy L. are the ones that immediately come to mind!
Having the blog was also an ice breaker with Jean who announced that she had read my blog when I met her at a Guild meeting. When I went to the first Shipshewana retreat, I met Donna and Vera and they knew me from my blog and it was like we already knew each other.
Having the blog helped secure my turn as a quilter for the Scrap Squad and you can read all about my quilts here.
Documenting my quilts and quilting on the blog has been a fantastic way for me to keep track of how long I have been working on a project and how many UFOs I have. It has also helped me keep track of goals and lists of things to do occasionally.
I think it is going to be a great way for me to keep track of my vintage machine collection. :) And knitting projects.
Enough of this sappy stuff! It's time to get to what everyone has been patiently waiting for.... THE GIVEAWAY!!!
I am giving away QUILTING! Yes, I am going to choose a winner from the comments and quilt a quilt for her (or him). There will be restrictions, of course.
- Maximum quilt size of 65" square.
- Winner pays for all other expenses - shipping, batting, and anything else that might come up.
- Quilting will not be a custom quilt design, but I have a wide range of pantographs and free hand designs available.
- This quilting is only available to US residents only because I don't want to deal with international shipping of a quilt. Sorry. :(
Also, depending on how popular this giveaway is, I might be inclined to sweeten the pot, so to speak, so feel free to share the giveaway on your blog or facebook or twitter pages. :)
And now for what you need to do to be entered... Leave me a comment and tell me how long it has been since you finished a quilt or a quilted project. :)
I will draw the winner on July 31 so you have almost 2 weeks to enter.
And the most important part... If you are a NO REPLY COMMENTER, you must leave your email address in the comment. If you don't and I have no way to get in touch with you, I will delete your comment from the post. If you have ever left a comment on my blog and have never gotten an email response, you are probably No Reply. I will be responding to each and every comment that is left so if you don't hear from me within a couple of days, you are probably marked as No Reply.
If you are unsure if you are no reply, just put your email in the comment.
I will modify this post as questions come up or if there is anything that I need to clarify.
Thanks for sharing in this journey with me and for celebrating my 2,000th post with me!
