Here’s to Give-aways and new friends…

Now I know why bloggers have Give-Aways!  I had so much fun yesterday after my posting about my First Give-Away (see yesterday for details).image I met so many wonderful new bloggers, made some new blogging BFFs and visited a lot of fantastic new blogs….many of which are now on my Blogs to Follow side bar!  One that stood out was  Barb  from A Corgi to Quilt By.  She is a brand new blogger, a school teacher and quilter.  When I went over to her blog for a visit I discovered a fantastic, informative blog!  Plus Barb also has the cutest Corgi (hence the name of the blog)….lots of lovely quilts and works in progress…..BUT what I don’t understand is that Barb, who has only been blogging a couple of weeks,  has already won TWO Give-Aways!!  I mean how lucky is that….maybe it’s just beginner’s luck… I think we’re going to have to keep our eyes on this girl! :o)

Lyn from Bluebird Quilts is having a give-away in honour of 29 years of wedded bliss.  Check out this Give-Away – lovely fabric and cookie cutters.  I think it’s time I won something….AND I am feeling lucky….AND it’s my turn….isn’t it?

Also check out Sewn for some gorgeous FREE patterns!  Got to love that!

Hey, is it Friendly Friday…already?!  Have a good one, and Happy Quilting!

I have met some very nice people in blog land. It is a great way to find people with similar interests and I love to see what new projects they are working on.

Thanks so very much for the wonderful kind sentiment! My husband thinks I should be buying lottery tickets instead of entering blog giveaways--lol. I am sure my luck will run out before long--hopefully long after your giveaway is finished!

I've met some wonderful people in blogland too. It's so fun to have friends from all over the world.

You do beautiful work! I love quilts, but do not have the patience to quilt myself, which is why I prefer painting. My mother-in-law quilts, though, so I give her my wish list and quilting projects. She never lets me down!

I keep meeting people on blogs that I would love to get to know better and have similar interests as I do. I could read blogs all day long............................caroltiki@yahoo.com

I love meeting new people and have fought having a giveaway on my blog for sometime but am lately leaning towards it. We're just a few weeks from having a baby and I'm thinking once he's born of having a giveaway in his honor. Bloggers Rock!!
