Welcome to my 100th post..........and

It is also the 1 year anniversary of this blog.............so to celebrate I am having a giveaway, more on that shortly.
First I want to say that I began this blog as a way to keep track of my progress, to share my ideas and to give myself a reason to be creative as often as possible.
In return, I have gained new confidence in myself as an artist and made many friends along the way.

So what's up for grabs? well remember the dryer sheets and fabric I was painting a little while ago? The winner will receive this bundle consisting of twelve 9" x 12" pcs of fabric along with 12 matching dryer sheets, first choice of one of the postcards below and this doodle.
Since my blog readers may not all be quilters I tried to think of something to doodle that we all would use, whether we are quilters, beaders, fibre artists, or just crafters in general so I came up with these scissors............notice that I actually signed this one.

I also plan to select several names at random and send out these postcards.
So how will this work? well, leave me a comment on this post to be entered in the draw.
Please be sure I have a way to contact you.
I will select the winners at random on Saturday



Now I believe that loyalty should be rewarded so I have taken all of the comments that I have received in the last month and printed them so that they will also be included in this draw..........looks like some of you have quite a few chances already

1 year & 100 posts, Wow and I think I am just getting started.

Congrats Jill on 1 year and 100 posts. You planned the milestones perfectly. :)

I've enjoyed reading your posts, going back through the archives to see all the wonderful things you're doing.

I do have a question about the dryer sheets that I'm don't remember seeing an answer to. Are they new/used, scented/uncented? They are very pretty.

Good luck on the next 100 and the next year.

I've been revisiting blogs I discovered during the quilt festival...great timing....I visit yours on your 100th post/1 year anniversary. Congratulations!!! Would love to be entered in your giveaway. All your goodies are wonderful. If you had not mentioned the doodling, I would not have guessed you drew those scissors. Amazing. I also love your thread painting post. I have a similar project I am working on...but nervous about the thread painting. Happy Blogiversary!

Quilter Kathy said...

Congrats on your blogiversary! What a delightful and generous giveaway! How can you part with these treasures?!? I think you should think about turning your "doodles" masterpieces into cards that us quilters could buy and send to friends. You could sell them at quilt shows...what do you think!?!?
BTW...my husband really thinks I have totally lost my mind now that I am saving used dyer sheets!!! I blamed you!

Debra said...

Gosh, it's a good thing I stopped by! Congrats and many more!
