Blogoversary and Giveaway

Well, it is one whole year since I started this little blog, not really knowing what to expect. I'd been a lurker for a while and decided I might as well give it a try.

Some of the highlights of the year have been:

*Meeting a lovely group of girls from Tasmania who I now call friends .... I didn't really know many other crafters before .... well not as addicted as we all are! Already looking forward to our next Tassie bloggers get-together.

*Meeting and 'talking' to lovely bloggers all around Australia and overseas.

*Participating in swaps. I received some lovely gifts and had fun making things for my swap partners.

*Finishing far more projects than I would have pre-blog ... blogging is such a great motivator.

*Giving and receiving comments ... it is nice to know other people like your work.

*Winning a few giveaways .... everyone likes to win sometimes.

*Improving my computer skills dramatically and learning to use a digital camera.

*And of course reading and being inspired by all the fantastic blogs in blogland.

Well, now to the part you've all been waiting for! As I love Christmas decorating so much I thought my blogoversary giveaway would have a Christmas flavour. This is what I'm giving away.


A heart from my favourite local shop Spoil Me Gifts and Flowers.


A Christmas sachet.

A fat quarter of Roman Holiday and two skeins of DMC threads.

A stocking made by me. I think they are Robyn Pandolph fabrics.



And a little angel hanging also made by me.



To be in the running, just leave a comment on this post by midnight Monday 5th January. You might like to tell me one of your favourite things about blogging .... but you'll still be in the draw if you choose not to! Good luck and thanks for stopping by.

P.S. Overseas bloggers are welcome to enter ... I am happy to post anywhere in the world.

  1. These are all lovely. Congratulations on your 1 year anniversary. I'm inspired by your statement that you have finished more projects since you began blogging. This might be just the incentive that I need.
    (If you would ship to the US, please throw my name in the hat. If not, I understand. ) However, congratulations on your first year.

  120. Congratulations on your blogaversary.
    Yours is one of my top ten favourite quilting blogs. I'm always inspired when I see the lovely things you've made.
    The thing I like most about blogging is that it gives a feeling of community. I have some lovely stitching/quilting friends all over the world now - amazing!

  121. Congratulations on your blogiversary, Christine. A highlight of blogging for me is the feeling of belonging to a community and everything that goes along with it...the sharing, friendships, problem solving, inspiration etc...and the lovely piccies of all the cats! ;)

  124. Congratulations on your one year old wonderful blog.
    For me blogging means to come in contact with creative people around the world and having the possibility to show and to look the creative results.
