Woo hoo! Woo hoo! Today is my first blogaversary! Did I ever think I would last a year blogging? No. Did I know that blogging would change both my personal and my quilty world upside down? Not. A. Clue.
Through this blog I have met each and every one of you. Before you, I was over here on the west coast of Ireland (sort-of) quilting all by my lonesome. I was trying to teach myself, had no one to share my excitement with or learn from and was searching for my own personal style.
You guys changed EVERYTHING. I now have a quilting community. A way to learn. Folks to share my excitement. People who inspire and encourage one another each and every day. Never have I known a community of incredibly generous people who consistently encourage one another to create. I am so grateful for each and every one of you.
So, should we celebrate our happy Fluffy Sheep Quilting community with a give away? How about a little package of 5 gorgeous fat quarters? Do you like these? They're designed by Monaluna for Birch Fabrics.
Here's what you can do to get an entry:
1. One entry for anyone willing to celebrate with me.
1. One additional entry for each and every current follower.
2. Another entry for current followers who spread the word of a blogaversary celebration through their blogs, twitter or facebook....your social media of choice.
3. And finally...wouldn't it be nice to finish off the first year with a round 500 followers? One entry for each new follower bringing me up to 500. Should be about 25 of you....Just let me know what number you are according to the gadget thingy on the right of the home page.
The give away will remain open for the week. I will choose the winner on 12 March at noon. Good luck! And again, thank you. Thank you all for brightening my quilty world each day. xx
