My 100th post (or is it....?) & Give-away

I thought this was my 100th post because it was showing 99 last time I checked, but today it says I had 100 already, so who knows. Anyway, it is a milestone, and I would like to thank Swooze for getting me started back in March 2007. I have found blogging to be a really positive discipline, in that it helps me get things done (constantly thinking, must take a picture for the blog) and also helps me to look back and see what I have accomplished (for those darker days where you feel like you are never achieving anything). It has also been a fun way to show pics to online friends so that they can see what I am working on, and even to keep in touch with friends further away who wonder what I am up to.

In keeping with blogging tradition, I am offering a giveaway. The prize was a bit difficult, as most quilting stuff in this country is imported from the USA, but then I remembered that I have a whole scrap basket of Liberty printed cottons. So for everyone who leaves a comment on this blog before 1st January 2008, I will put your name in a hat and pull out one winner at random. The prize will be 25 charm squares (4.5") of genuine UK printed Liberty cottons. I will try to cut these with no duplicates, but if I don't have enough prints there may be some duplication. The table runner in the picture was made using prints from this Liberty collection.


I hope you all had a good day yesterday. We had a lovely relaxing day with lots of chocolate, good food, family games and television, and of course present opening. Ds gave me a cross-stitch magazine and dh gave me a copy of Quiltmania in my stocking, as well as a few packs of FQs and a pack of safety pins. I also received a daylight craft lamp and some dollshouse clamps, micro drills and needlenose pliers. Today we are off down to the in-laws for second Christmas at their house, and my sister-in-law and dh's uncle will also be there.




Meanwhile, I finished a pair of mittens and wore them for a walk on Christmas Eve. It was lovely looking into everyone's windows and seeing all the christmas lights and trees. Being close to London as we are, very few people have a big yard so you are literally looking in their front windows as you walk along the pavement. I probably sound like a peeping tom but I'm not, really!
