Blogiversary and Give-A-Way!!

I just realized I have been blogging for one whole year!!!! I started at the very end of June last year. I was really worried that this computer thing would be to hard for the likes of me....but with the encouragement of my wonderful blog designer...who happens to a very good friend. I did it and have loved every minute of it!! With 120 posts under my belt, and almost 200 followers...WOW!!!! I am just awed by everyone who comes and visits me. I have made some awesome friends here in blog land!! I have decided to have 2 give-a-ways for my AWESOME followers....so stay tuned to the end of this post!!

You may have noticed that my blog just received a little tune-up! As I am getting ready for the Where Blogger's Create Studio tour..I asked Karen Valentine to help my blog put on a different dress :O)
...and as always she did a super job!! I went from a 3 column to a 2 column blog. This allows my pictures to be bigger!!! I also got new category buttons too!! Thank you so much Karen for the tune-up....I LOVE it!!



I also wanted to remind everyone that next Saturday the 14th is the WBC studio tour...be sure to go to Karen's blog and sign up or just hop around and see all the wonderful studios.

I know I am getting mine all neat and pretty :O)

Sooo, onto my give-a-ways...Now I know I have quilters and non-quilters who follow me...so I wanted to have 2 give-a-ways for each group of followers.....up first is for those who love to quilt. 

I have a lovely kit and pattern that I just have never found the time to use and would LOVE to give it to one of my quilting followers. It measures 15x25 when made...and it has a mini 12x12 also included.

....and for those who don't quilt...here a collection of fun stuff from my stash that you can play with. Papers I have made, buttons, lace, sheets from old books, flowers, and snippets of my washi tape collection. 

 ......so, leave me a "I WANT THAT" comment, and which one you would like to win....(remember you have to be a follower to win) ......and this Friday just before the WBC party I will pick the 2 winners!!!! I think I love giving stuff away better than winning it!!!!! I'm so excited!!! This is truly my way of just saying THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART!!!!

My blogging experience would NOT be the same without each and every one you coming to see me.

THIS GIVE-A-WAY IS NOW CLOSED!!!!!!

I have been following you on Google Reader and thought I was seeing your blog. I wasn't, and I'm so glad I found the 'real' thing, it's soooo pretty!
I would choose the quilt pattern and fabric.
Could you tell me where I can buy some of that fabric? I love tone on tone.
