Three Years!

I noticed some "blogaversaries" going on around blogland lately and just realized that this little blog's third birthday just came and went!

I think it's time for a giveaway.
I'm going to have to give this one a little thought, so do come back tomorrow for the details.
I'm such a tease...

I've been looking back at my early posts with nostalgia.
You won't mind if I re-share some of those in the coming weeks, would you?

This was my very first blog post. Ever.

March 7, 2007

Well, here goes...

I'm not sure what will end up here, but I'm sure it'll take on shape as I go along.

This is a block from my current quilting project. I'm making a blue (and red) log cabin quilt using only fabrics from my stash. The plan is to use up all my stash fabrics so that I can go buy new fabrics without feeling so guilty about all the unused fabric in the closet.

Pin It!

I am so impressed. You have come a LONG way from that first post. Your skills in sewing and your skills in writing. How very fun. I can't believe its been three years. That first post doesn't look familiar, so I haven't been with you that long, but I am loving that I found your blog.
