#71 Celebrating 1000+ InstaGram Followers with a GiveAway!!

You guys are the best!!

If someone would have asked me when I signed up on InstaGram, how many followers I think I would have after a few short years, I would have said 10 maybe 20, and that would have been mostly family and friends, lol! Boy was I wrong!! I am over the moon happy to be a part of such a supportive network of quilters and crafters!! In the last almost 3 yrs I have virtually met so many amazing and truly talented people. So I want to say thank you, for all your encouragement and support and lovely comments, by hosting a giveaway for all of you! Not to leave out those who follow my blog as well, because I know some follow both, and because RaffleCopter making picking a winner easier, I'm using the blog to host the prize giveaway. Just to explain the blog's difference, I post far more pictures here and share the process of some projects, giveaways, tutorials and Blog Hops here. Please follow along if you would like, I usually  post every other week (sometimes once a month) unless there are a lot of fun things going on!! (like right now)



Mad About Patchwork is a Canadian Online store that recently also became a store front!! Don't worry though they ship Internationally too!!


There are 2 prizes up for grabs, a gift certificate to Mad About Patchwork (one of my favourite shops) for $30.00 and a Homemade Package from me, including the Honey Cowl I just finished knitting, a crocheted market bag, a tiny zippered pouch and a hipster purse. (Prizes are open to all)


Thank You all so much and good luck to everyone!!

  14. This year I am setting my sights a little more realistically. Usually I have so many quilts, wall hangings and such on the go for Christmas that invariably at least one is not complete in time, and, I never seem to get anything done for me. This year most will be getting placemat sets, a table runner or some pouches and fun pillowcases. I do have a quilt in the works but if it doesn't get done in time it will bother no one but me as it is for ME. I enjoy your blog each time an email is delivered to my inbox. This is an awesome giveaway. I love Mad About Patchwork and your work is wonderful.
