Happy 3rd Blogiversary to Me!

Today is my 3rd Blogiversary! It has been a whirlwind 3 years. I have had so much fun and learned so much. It has been exciting for me to meet some of my blogging friends in real life.  I have done swaps, quilting bees, learned to knit socks and redwork and ventured into quilted household items. I have been happy, sad, frustrated, glad and most of all inspired by all of you. I am too scared right now to go on Pinterest, for I know I will find so many things I will want to make. I am learning to appreciate my voice, and the things that make me "me".




Since this should not be all about me, I am having a giveaway. I spent most of Sunday sorting my fabric and scraps. I now have a new appreciation on how quickly scraps can grow. Yesterday I started cutting and sewing a quilt with my nephew using Castle Peeps. I have some scraps left over from my cutting and I would love to give them away to one of you. All you need to do is tell me about a project you are working on right now. I need to be able to contact you, so if you are a no-reply blogger, please leave me your email in the comment. The giveaway will be open until 12:00 pm, Eastern Daylight Savings Time, and the winner will be chosen randomly. Thank you for being on this journey with me.

I just finished pinning my Autumn quilt, a plain block quilt is waiting to be pinned and night time is reserved for hexies. Happy 3 rd year blogiversary to you and many more. I haven't had much to post so my blog sits empty at this time. Sigh.... Hopefully will have something soon.

I love your line - "I am learning to appreciate my voice, and the things that make me 'me'."
That is so important and I always forget it!
