This is my 100th post. I started blogging in January of 2008 with the intention of simply doing an online journal of my work. At the time I didn't realize the extent of the online community of crafters. I have enjoyed seeing and reading about your creations and your lives. I have developed my craftmanship and my aesthetics in large part due to the supportive, creative people that I have connected with through this blog. I marvel at the kindness and generosity of people who I have never met. It always amazes me what a kind word or a supportive comment will do to motivate or inspire me. I try to do the same for others in the blog community. So, thanks for coming by, for reading, for being part of my blog. Now for the celebration.
No party is complete without cake. The cake today is generously provided by Kajsa of Syko fame. She's a fabulous Finnish quilt artist. If you haven't visited her blog, drop everything and go now. She has the most wonderful, unique design sense. I love the whimsical feeling of her work. Right now she has a quilt up for auction on ebay to benefit Chinese orphans. Check it out and make a bid! The cake has zero calories, but is chocked full of creativity, inspiration and fabulous fabric. Don't we all need a piece of that every once and awhile!
In addition to cake there is a present. This quilt in the pictures below will go to one of you attending my party. This is my first mini quilt. I signed up for a mini quilt swap and I've been practicing and this little 8" square quilt is the result. The front is the "Pretty in Pink" side with little pink print pinwheels. The back is the "Wonky Log Cabin" side. Isn't that fun, it's reversible! This crinkled beauty can be yours.
So if you would like to attend the party, celebrate with me and try to take home the present, simply leave a comment and let me know which side of this little pink quilt you like the best and why. The party won't last forever. You need to arrive and leave your comment by Thursday at 9:00 p.m. Central Time. I will announce the recipient Friday morning. Please be sure there is a way I can contact you either by blog or email. I would love to send it off before I leave on Saturday for my 25th wedding anniversary celebration trip with my hubby!
