Blog Anniversary and a Giveaway!
It's hard to believe that I have been blogging about quilting and farm life for four years already. A lot has happened in these 4 years, there have been lots of ups and a few downs during these years. Up has definitely been the arrival of Alexander and Oliver and being married to the most wonderful man I know, up--but also not easy, has been the finishing of the house (well--almost, still need to do some painting when we finish the busy time of the year). Down has been the drought and my trigeminal neuralgia (which I haven't been disturbed with in a long long time so maybe it will not return?) And through everything quilting has not gone away. I still love quilting! And now more than ever if that is possible!
So, I've also most recently started an etsy store to sell bits of leftover fabrics and maybe one day quilts. Many people have asked me if I sell my quilts and it is so hard to answer that question. Most quilter's would understand this, but for those of you who do not quilt the simple answer is that it is not economical. Making quilts is about the process and the passion for color, fabrics and design. It is not necessarily about the end result, although I do enjoy a quilt that has turned out like I envisioned or better. In the future, I may find a way to do to make quilts without compromising what it is that I love about the process enough sell what I make. It might be a journey that will take a little time for me though.
Ok, so for the giveaway! Please check out my etsy store here and let me know which charm pack you would chose if you won this giveaway. I will give up to 3 chances for you to win if you blog or follow in addition to commenting on this post, just post extra comments telling me that you have done so. I will do the draw next Monday, December 6th, so all entries must be in by the 5th. Good luck!
