Milestones…

I haven’t had a Give Away in ages…and I have TWO important Blogging Milestones coming up soon…I am slowly inching my way to 700 FOLLOWERS (4 more to go!) and on July 12th I celebrate TWO years of Blogging!!  So which ever one happens first means a Give Away NEEDS to happen!  image

BUT WHAT TO GIVE AWAY??  I have given it a lot of thought as I need to satisfy the quilters in the group and I also need to satisfy the Woolies in the group…SEW I think it’s a given that TWO years of Blogging deserves TWO Give Aways…I will keep you posted!!

I have been busy quilting the Dresden Quilt…FOUR more blocks to go!!  It’s been a slow go but I am happy with it so far!

So no quilting pictures today…but I hope you enjoyed seeing some of my roses!  Wish you could press a smell button…:o)

Have a thorny Thursday and Happy Quilting!~P

Beautiful roses and nice shots. I can't wait to get my new camera to try art photos. The part is coming from Japan, so might take awhile.

Beautiful roses, Paulette. I have a couple, but something seems to be turning the leaves yellow. They are in pots so maybe they need more fertilizer. Early congrats on your two milestones. Looking forward to seeing your Dresden quilted.

Congratulations on your blogging milestones! And your roses are beautiful, especially the white one! Thanks for sharing them! :0)

I really enjoyed the pics of your roses, wish that there was some way to smell them too. Happy quilting!

Brenda said...

Such pretty roses. I needed to see the beauty today. A friend lost their 5 year old son today. My heart is breaking for them.

Carol said...

Your roses are gorgeous.
Wow, almost 700 people tuning in to see what you do and read what you have to say!! Well, I can understand that because this is a great place to visit.

xx, Carol

Linda said...

Congratulations!Wow, if I weren't already a follower, I would follow just to get you closer to that 700 mark!
Love your roses!

Mary said...

There are about 10 blogs that I must read every day, and yours is one of them. It wasn't till you said you were close to 700 followers that I realized I wasn't one of them. So I am now an official follower even though I will still just use my Favorites button to find you.
Congrats on the two big milestones!

I'll help push you over the top. I have been reading you regularly for two years and always thought I was a follower. Only in my reader, I guess. I have enjoyed your travel stories and loved the stash building you have been doing; more so because it doesn't stay in your stash for long. Congrats on your milestones.

Oh how I do wish for a "smell" button! Those roses are gorgeous! Mine didn't do well this year, I think it was too wet and cold for too long. Now it is too hot! Thanks for sharing!

You should be very proud of your flowers! You could probably sell them and use the proceeds for more fabric, dies, etc.
