What a celebration ....

my 100th blog post, a finish and a giveaway!!!
 
100 posts - admittedly when I started blogging again things were slooowww but I've got a rhythm now and I love the sense of community that is present amongst quilting and craft bloggers.  It's so lovely to take some quiet time and catch up on what everyone's been doing and of course ogle over all the lovely pictures!  To celebrate I am having a giveaway - details at the bottom of the post.
 
But onto a finish first ...... my Rainbow Swap mini quilt is now finished.  Whilst I have a lot to say about this quilt and the process (when do I not have a lot to say?) for today a few pictures will suffice.  I will just say that I am really happy with how this quilt has turned out and I will be a little bit sad when I have to send it out into the big wide world.




I am linking up this finish to Finish it up Friday over at Crazy Mom Quilts today and it is also a finish from my 2016 Finish Along list.
 
So onto the giveaway .....  UPDATED 03/03/2016 This has now closed.
 
There are two prizes up for grabs, both containing everything you need for a spot of well deserved R&R, all you need to provide is the mug!  The latest issue of a quilting magazine, chocolate, tea bags and a double sided quilted mug rug made by yours truly!  I am happy to post internationally .....
 
Option 1 - magazine is Love Patchwork & Quilting


Option 2 - magazine is Today's Quilter


If you would like to enter then here's what to do:

::  One entry for a comment on this blog post, stating which option you would prefer if you have a preference

::  One entry for a comment stating how you follow me, if you wish to start following there is a Bloglovin' button over there on the left and I can also be found over on Facebook and Instagram

You can also have extra entries if you comment on the relevant posts over at FB and IG.

The giveaway will be open until 03 March 2016 and will be drawn that evening UK time.

Hope you all a great weekend. x

  1. Hi, congrats on the 100th blog post. Of the 2 giveaways shown, I would pick the second one. My favorite color is purple and I'm quite certain the little mug rug has my name on it somewhere. LOL

  9. What a lovely rainbow, and those feathers are great! Congratulations on your 100th post! I have never seen Today's Quilter in the shops here, so would choose that, but I'd be equally happy to receive Love Quilting...

  10. Congratulations on your 100th post. I'm nearly there after a few slow years. You have certainly got the rhythm of feathers going on the mini-I love it. Thanks for the giveaway-option 1 would be my choice for the magazine which is not one I have seen here.
