I would like to share something with you!!!

I saw this over at Susan's and liked the idea--who doesn't like getting random gifts in the mail throughout the year?  So, here we go:


1. I will make a little something for the first 3 people that comment on this post. It will be a surprise and may arrive at any time in the next 365 days (yes, a year).

2. To sign up to receive a gift from me you must play along too.  Share the giving love on your blog by promising to send a handmade goodie to the first three people that comment on your blog post.

3. You must have a blog.

4. After commenting on my post, you have to post this (or similar) on your blog to spread the love.

I don't know if three people will even get around to commenting on this, but I will say that if you find this post 6 months from now and only 2 people have bothered to comment, you can still be commenter #3 and get a random goodie from me!  When you comment, I'll email you and get your address and then you should get something from me sometime before next September.

Check out Dawn's Blooming Nine Patch and VOTE!!!

I have entered a Blooming Nine Patch at Quilting Gallery's themed quilt contest.

I say my first Blooming Nine Patch at a local quilt show and decided to make one using directions I found on the internet. 

Using my 1990's stash caused me to run out of fabric and I had to redo some of the blocks to complete the quilt.  Now I have to figure out what fabric to use for the binding.

My sister Dawn has placed her name on this quilt.

And I guess Garfield has also!!

My 100th I Quilt Scarlet and Gray Blog Post!!!

When I started this blog just over a year ago, I thought it would be a great way to share my love of The Ohio State Buckeyes and Quilting.  But it has been so much more!!  Now writing my 100th post I think back to my first post, about the first Scarlet and Gray quilt that I made and the many that have followed. 

The blogging friends I have made across the USA, Darlene at Insights from SewCalGal and the World, Blockhead from Tasmania Australia.

The abilty to share my blog posts on Facebook has allowed me to share with even more friends and family.

You have read about my DH Jim and the boys Garfield and Nermal.  Even as I write this Nermal is being very helpful.  Not!!

I appreciate everyone that has voted for one my quilts at the Quilting Gallery contests, one of these days I may actually place!!

I have shared with you the many quitling patterns I have tested by some really great designers!  They amaze me with their talents.

I will continue to post new quilts and projects, and other things going on with myself and my family.

I hope you continue to read my next 100 blog posts.
