In this Third Anniversary celebration of my blog, I have reflected back on a some bloggers who inspired and encouraged. I have a couple more I want to tell you about. The first one is Mary Grace over at HookedOnNeedles. We started blogging at about the same time. She does some fantastic things with yarn. You all know I can't knit or crochet but I love seeing what others make with yarn! She's also a quilter and makes totebags and tablerunners and she just finished her postage stamp quilt. Do go and check it out!
She's also a very lucky lady. Mary Grace was a winner of my 100th post giveaway. She won this. It's a little blue basket that's filled with goodies (I'll have a fun project coming up that will feature that basket and similar ones). Interestingly, Mary Grace has won five giveaways on my blog and the last one was just yesterday! In addition to the blue basket, she won Christmas charm squares, Pinky the bunny and Easter treats, a Christmas stocking kit and the charm squares from Jacquelynne's "Sewing Room Social" fabric line. Yes, she is one lucky, and also a very talented gal!!
That stocking kit she won was featured in this post. I've always wanted to do a tutorial on that project so watch for it sometime later in the summer. And while Mary Grace won a kit, interestingly Joy was the winner of the finished stocking. That's right. Go here and you can see my husband drawing her name from the lucky basket. I got goosebumps when he read her name. Tell me, what are the odds that Joy would win the Joy stocking?!! That giveaway was one of my favorites because I loved reading the memories everyone shared of their Christmas stockings.
I have some more blogging friends that I want to share about but I'll bet you just want to get to the chance to win this "Joy of Quilting" book. Here's all you have to do to earn a chance to win........ just leave your name and tell me the quilting project that brought you the most Joy! Don't forget to leave your e-mail address if you don't have a blog. You have until Sunday, June 12th at 12:00 A.M. Midnight CST to leave a comment.
Be sure to check the posts for the last three days as there are still giveaways that you can enter! Have a great day everyone!
