Woo hoo! Wah hay! Happy dancing in the extreme here!!! I’m so excited I can hardly speak!!! Phew! Calm down! Calm down!
Let me explain. I had an email today from Angela down at Art and Stitch in Peterborough to say that she had seen a quilt of mine on some advertising literature! What? Who? Where? I hadn’t a clue. Anyway, Angela’s given me the link and it’s true! There is my Journal Quilt advertising the Northern Needlecraft Show later in the year. Click here and scroll down and you can see a fuzzy view of it. The actual quilt is this one (good job you can’t see the back, it was not tidy!)
I know it’s only a teensy bit of fame but I am overcome! Fancy choosing my quilt and it’s not even a traditional quilt. I’ve rung Grosvenor Exhibitions and they’re going to send me the leaflet. Yeah! I may never come down off the ceiling :-D
Right, now then, calm down. The next bit of celebration is that yesterday was my 600th post! I’ve also been blogging for 2 and a half years and missed my 2nd blogversary so I think it’s time I had one of those giveaway thingies. I have had a great time blogging and meeting so many wonderful people and this experience has taught me so much and taken me along a path I never really expected. It is lovely to get your comments and know that I am not just burbling away to myself (which is what I do all the time at home, in the garden, out shopping, in the street…..) and I appreciate the fact that people are adding themselves to my followers. Thank you all for your lovely support and messages and even if you don’t leave comments thank you for bothering to look in here and suffer my inane ramblings. I have learnt so much from all the blogs I look at and I hope in some small way I have inspired some of you to try new things too.
Right, I need to set a time limit. If you leave a comment here or any future posts between today and next Thursday 21 January your name will be entered in a draw and the first name drawn will receive this Journal Quilt which measures 12” x 6”
or these photo cards of my artwork that my DH has made
If I can manage it there might be a small third gift. (I don’t have a supply of ready made pieces so would have to make something). So leave me your name in a comment and make sure I can contact you if you are normally a no-reply blogger (email me separately if you prefer) and good luck! I will endeavour to post the result at the end of next week.
PS Talking of giveaways Kleinzonnetje is having a knitting and fabric giveaway on her blog. Pop across and have a look before 19 January.
