Blogiversary: 1 year!

Image result for blogiversary

It has been one year!  Yay!!!!! ( I can just hear Kermit while his arms are waving.)

Wow!  I love my quilting and this has been a way of celebrating the inching forward of projects.
It has also been a recognition of those completions.  And the best part has been the connections with you, the readers who have been so gracious to comment.

I have gotten involved in many more online projects this year: I finished Bonnie Hunter's mystery of last year, completed the patchwork for a log cabin quilt along, made 38 blocks per week as a Blockhead ( so far) , completed Helping Hands donation, and Covered in Love donation blocks,  am participating in Meadow Mist mystery and the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.

This is all because of the creative and interesting things available online. The plethora of fabric choices,  tutorials and ideas which  are so inspiring. And the accountability to show progress.

  At the same time, I have found that I am in a group of like minded people who have too many fun things we want to do, busy lives preventing us from getting as much done as we would like, but having so many warm compassionate supportive people.  Reading how others are in slumps, or struggle with projects  has made me realize I am normal.  I always had felt badly as my mom would be a one project person.

Thank you!

I have a surprise giveaway for a lucky responder.


  1. Congratulations on one year! Here's to many more!

  2. Congratulations! You sound so very busy! I get so tempted by all the quilt-a-longs offered in blogs. If I allowed myself to do all of them, I would never get my UFOs finished, much less all the planned ones! Good luck on your second year!

  3. The content of your blog is exactly what I needed, I like your blog, I sincerely hope that your blog a rapid increase in traffic density, which help promote your blog and we hope that your blog is being updated.

  4. Congrats on your Blogversary! You're right about there being so many things for quilters to get involved with. Sounds like you chose some good ones!

  5. Congratulations on one year of blogging! I agree there is so much inspiration to be found online...your blog is one place I find it! Usually I'm just a lurker, but I enjoy looking around so many blogs. Your Christmas presents from a few posts back were an inspiration for me when you posted them. I hope you keep creating and sharing!

  6. Congrats on you first anniversary. I admire the work that so many quilters put into their blogs along with their willingness to share information about their work. That is what attracted me to your site. As a beginner quilter, I have learned so much from the quilting community with still lots to learn. You inspire me to keep sewing and designing quilts with the hope to contribute quilts to Veterans and the lonely elderly. So many unmet needs out there and you inspire me to get involved. Thanks you.

  7. Hi Debbie,
    I wasn't able to comment on today's post because the picture for Trends and Traditions covers the comment box! I love the idea of the felt tree. That is SO clever. I'm going to go back and PIN it for next year when Dominic may feel the need to rearrange our tree (or the next year). I recognize that Row by Row camper experience from a quilt shop I visited. ~smile~ Roseanne

    1. Oops! I forgot to say congrats on your blogiversary! ~smile~ Roseanne
