Give Away!

Dear readers and followers. Thank you all for the sweet comments on Emmy's Quilt. I think this quilt is right down everybodies alley with the red-pink-turquoise-flower-dot-stripe theme... :D

I've been talking about throwing a give away for ever and ever... but I just have not been able to put my act together and actually DO IT myself. But after showing you this quilt, now is the time for it!

I've been blogging for about 2 years plus now and it has been the most lovely journey. I've learned so much, met so many nice ladies in Blogland, grown in my creative self and built up my self esteem big time. Yes, that is true!

And it is all thank to you who share your knowledge without fuss, who drop the most precious small messages in my Inbox daily. You who inspire me to try out new things and who keeps me awake at night as I am suffering from inspirational overdoses... You who love mixing colors in any way possible and with anything available - it could be yarn, embroidery thread, markers, buttons, china, pins, clothing, fabric, trims, lace, paints, cars, flowers, stones, food, shoes...  You who share your everyday lives with all the good and the bad. Thank you all for being around. I now know I am not alone. We are so many in the same boat out there. With the same cravings, same struggles, same passions and the same everything. But still so different. Girls can at times be quite naughty in a group larger than two but here in Blogland it feels like we all are jumping on the slightest chance to praise, help, give a tip or cheer eachother up. I love that!

So I've been saving this special pile of squares especially for this moment. When I started on Emmy's Quilt I ended up with some left overs. It is a pile of 64 gorgeous 5 inch squares, enough to make a good size baby quilt or anything else you have in mind.

It is a mix between recycled old vintage sheets and newly purchased modern prints. To enter the give away just leave a comment on this post. The game is on until Friday the 9th of September. I will announce the winner next weekend.

Kärlek
Annette

  2. oooh! how wonderful! well as they say, you have to be in it to win it! I am very new to blogland and I love peeking into the lives of fellow creative crafters who are so generous in giving up their time to share the trials and tribulations of their journeys! I agree it can be so inspirational to hear and see other people's situations that are similar to your own.
    Thank-you for a wonderful, inspiring blog that keeps me coming back time and time again.
