Celebrating 3 Years of Fun, Friendship, and Finishes

It's hard to believe it's been three years since I started my blog -- February 21, 2014.  I have met so many wonderful people, made new friends, and have had a lot of fun on this journey.

I've played along with mystery quilts and blog hops, designed two quilt blocks (and one was published in The Quilter's Planner 2016!!), tried new patterns, learned new techniques, and tried things I never imagined I would (and you know paper piecing is at the top of that list).  😊

GIVEAWAY!!!   I'm in the beginning stages of planning a trip to Sangam (a Girl Guide World Centre) in India in 2018 to celebrate my 50th birthday.  Leave a comment telling me a place you have always wanted to visit.  I'll randomly draw at the end of the day Saturday, February 25, 2017.  The prize is two patterns from Jaybird Quilts.




Thanks to everyone who has commented on my blog (and thanks for following), given me great advice, and generally supported me in this adventure.  Here's to another great year!!

Congratulations, Anja! It has been a lot of fun watching your journey. :) I have been such a homebody for years that I would be excited to visit just about anywhere outside the U.S! But I think the two at the top are Israel and Paris.
