1000 and counting...




Can you believe this is my 1000th post on this little ole blog?!? Crazy huh? Some of you have been around for the entire ride and some have joined in along the way. All I can say is, thank you! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading and commenting and quilting along with me over the past few years.

I can't think of anything better to celebrate a milestone like this than to do a giveaway of course! Since I started with patterns and templates, then I wrote a book (I may have mentioned a few times) and there are lots more fun things to come...I will let the winner choose any pattern on my website, one template (big or small) and a copy of my book plus a set of eco pouches. Then I may have to throw in a fun surprise or two. Why not?

All you have to do to enter is leave a comment telling me what you like best about my blog. I'll choose a winner on Tuesday night.

Good luck!
Diane
