1 YEAR!!! I can NOT believe it's already been a year!!! What's been a year? Well EXACTLY 1 year ago today (3/22/13) I started this blog! I decided to look back through this past year and see how far I have come. I know I haven't posted a ton on here but it's crazy! I actually can see how much I've grown as a quilter (not so much a blogger...I think it's prolli cuz I'm not to tech savvy)!
I mean WOW!!!! If you look back here to my very first quilt for example...
I've went through each of my posts and read them and laughed! LOL! I remember BEGGING you guys for some tips on basting, binding, quilting, EVERYTHING! And a lot of you have helped me! (Which I sincerely appreciate!!!!) A lot of it I've become better at just by doing it. I didn't/don't have anyone that helps me learn new things, I've learned everything I know from the internet and trial and error! Seriously, all these wonderful blogs and classes online are AMAZING! I love Craftsy I have learned some AMAZING things from their classes!!!!
So, I went from the above pictured to this....
(I'll tell you guys more about this in another post)
Over the past year I've went from knowing NOTHING at all about quilting to:
Making my first quilt, Free Motion Quilting (which I'm getting a little bit better at), doing some improv, joining my first swap (and a lot more of them just because I LOVE SWAPPING!!!), not only joining a quilting bee but STARTING not one but TWO Bees!!!! And I've done so much more! I can't thank all YOU enough for encouraging and supporting me through this wonderful, amazing journey! I really wouldn't have kept going if it hadn't been for your comments and emails!!!! I've met soooooo many amazing people through blogging and the online quilting community, I could not be happier with my decision to start this blog!
So, as a THANK YOU for supporting me I'm teaming up with the LOVELY Caitlin of I Don't Do Dishes to bring you a little giveaway! Who doesn't LOVE a good giveaway???? The winner will get to pick a charm pack of one of the AMAZING new lines....
