3 YEARS, 400 POSTS = A GIVE-AWAY

Give away is now closed  

Three years ago, almost to the day, I started this blog.  It has been a lot of fun and I've enjoyed every bit of it.  This is my 400th post. I can hardly believe it!

Over the years a little fabric has been bought


and some quilts have been made.......



.........just to show a few

Anyhow,  somewhere along the way I acquired two "Juggling Summer" jellyrolls by Zen Chic for Moda. If you think you might fancy one of these, just leave a comment (one) on this post. I'll keep the give-away open for a few days and choose a winner later in the week.



Thanks so much to everyone who frequents this here blog, and for all your nice comments over the years  : )      I appreciate you !

*****if you comment from google+ I can't reply unless you leave an e-mail addy
