Today is the one year anniversary of my blog!!
It's hard for me to believe, it seems like I just started. It has been and continues to be a learning experience, but it has been well worth the time. I feel like I have received much more from you than I have given in return.
A year ago, I wasn't into blogs....at all. But I had a friend who kept talking about all the great quilt things happening out in blogland. She was all the time, "did you see that blog or this blog". My response was always the same, "I don't have time to read blogs about quilting, I'm too busy actually quilting". Then one day she sent me a link to Sister's Choice blog, written by Nicole. She sent it to me because Nicole had dogs similar to a dog we once owned. All it took was one post about Ozzie and Sophie and I was hooked. Nicole is a wonderful writer, I immediately felt like, and still do, that each post is just a short chapter in a very interesting book. The kind you start reading and can't put down. Well once I got hooked on Nicole's blog it was no time until I was reading the blogs on her favorites list, then the favorites list of those favorites and so on. Once I was hooked on blogs, I decided I wanted to be part of the wonderful quilt blogging community. So 164 posts and 2,130 comments later, here we are!!
So for the rest of the week I'm going to share a few of my favorite moments from the last year and have a few giveaways.
Tommorrow, I'll answer a question I get frequently, "What's up with the "Cupcakes n Daisies" name?"
But for today, what's an anniversary without a giveaway?
First I'm giving away two charm packs from two families of fabrics that I love but don't seem to get much love out there,
