If you are stopping by from the Quilting Gallery, Welcome!! I hope you will sit and stay awhile! :) Michele said I should tell you all the goings on around here, and let me tell you, there is a whole lot of stuff going right now. I just celebrated my 2 year blogiversary on the 23rd and actually have a giveaway for that which you can sign up for here.
Starting September 3rd is the Friendship Quilts Blog Hop! There are some great blogs with amazing quilters participating, along with some super fun judges, a link up at the end, prizes, and a lot more prizes! It's going to be like totally rad!! (yes, I did just reference the 80's. And I hope you're ready for a lot more of where that came from because you are going to LOVE what we have in store for you!)
There is also a linky party every Thursday to share the beginnings and starts of your projects, whether old or new. Starting something new sometimes is just as, or more, exciting as finishing something up. I figure we might as well all enjoy it together! :)
There is also The Master List, which is a linky for all the linky parties around. If you host a linky party, or know of some, please come by and share them so we can find them too. There is also a new linky and Flickr group called Mark Your Calendar. It's still new, but is/will be a great resource for all upcoming events!! Come see what's happening and share your events! :)
As always, the Charming Travelers are still traveling the US and Canada. (you can read all about what it is here.) Ok, that is exhausting... you can check out my sidebar for anything else going on. :)
Now onto the good stuff! A giveaway!! :)
Besides just participating in the Quilting Gallery Giveaway Blog Hop, I've also decided to celebrate reaching 400 followers as well!! Wahoo!! This is a milestone I never thought I'd reach (just all those other great blogs, ya know.) Anyway, I am more than thrilled!! :) Thanks everyone for making this fun! Definitely giveaway worthy.
Sometimes it is so hard to figure out what to offer for a prize! I finally decided to offer a charm pack of Denyse Schmidt's new line, Chicopee! I love her fabrics. I like this line because it's more gender neutral than most fabrics, but it's still beautiful with great colors and great designs!
* the charm pack will be cut fresh from my stash of new, unwashed fabrics *
For an added prize I am also offering a pdf copy of a new pattern I will be releasing
"My First Alphabet" a PDF pattern from A-Z
finished size is 3" tall
(this is an unfinished project, so ignore the weird R and U and such. You can come back on Monday and see the final version, plus a few other projects made with this pattern!) :)
(only one is mandatory, the rest are optional)
- Leave a comment telling me your favorite thing about fall. Or your favorite thing to do in the fall. :)
- Follow my blog and leave a comment telling me you do.
- Link something (that is applicable) to either The Master List or the Mark Your Calendar linkies. Come back and tell me what you linked up. Whether it's your event, or one you participate in or enjoy, it's fine with me! :)
This Giveaway will be open until I pick a winner the morning of September 5th.
International entries welcome!
Make sure to leave your email in the comments so I have a way to get a hold of you, unless you are sure that you are not a no-reply blogger.
