Anniversary Giveaway.

Yesterday was the second anniversary of this little blog. I started it after lurking and reading other blogs and was greatly encouraged to take the plunge by Judith.

The final push for me was that I wanted to start the blog before I got a year older so on the eve of my birthday I wrote my first blog post. It is nice to link the two anniversaries together.

Blogging has really given me a whole different perspective on life. I have met some fantastic folk and made some true friends. It never ceases to amaze me that we belong to a great online quilting  community.

Just before Christmas, Quilt Candy left a comment to say that she was my 100th follower. The number has now crept up to 102. I think that these are good enough reasons to have a little giveaway.

I made this little bag to use as a toiletry bag and it is modelled on the Socksack pattern. I used it whilst away this week and it really worked for me. I was able to put my contact lenses case in the zippy pouch part and not have to hunt around my bag for it. 
 So I am going to offer up as a little giveaway…. another little drawstring bag that is made with some pretty elephant fabric and within it, is a secret zippy pouch to put little/precious things in.

To qualify, you need to be a follower of my blog and leave a comment below - no hoops to jump through. 

The Giveaway is open to UK and non-UK folk. I will use Mr Randomgenerator to pick a winner at 7pm (GMT) on Wednesday 13th February.

  2. I follow your blog! But not on that side thingy, on Bloglovin. It says you have 86 more followers on there (and then there's Feedly, etc so you probably have twice as many as you think)! Happy birthday!

  38. Happy birthday and blogiversary - belated though they are, thought I had posted earlier but it seems not to have worked. Feb 8 is my daughter's half birthday! I don't generally broadcast it but my nickname at school was Nellie! and I can play the relevant tune on the piano! Hope to see you again sometime soon - CRQ, maybe?
