Two Year Blog Anniversary! TIME'S UP!!

Wow, it sure doesn't seem like two years since I've been blogging. No way! It's been a lot of fun, especially getting to know other bloggers and being truly inspired by the quilts I've seen! I've sure learned a lot from all of you!

To celebrate this anniversary I'd like to have a give-away. I'm going to do this a little differently since it's real difficult for me to get to the mailing places during the week. So I'm going to let Kimberly at The Fat Quarter Shop do the mailing for me!

Just leave a comment on this post, and you will be entered in a drawing for a Jelly Roll of your choice from The Fat Quarter Shop! The winner can just visit her site, choose the one you want and let me know. Then I'll make arrangements to have it shipped right to your door! How easy is that!

The drawing will be on Sunday morning, 2/17/08. After I've had a cup or two of coffee!

Good luck to everyone! And thank you for visiting my little world!

Oops forgot to say wow about the dedication it takes to keep up with a blog for two years. I truly have enjoyed reading your blog since I stumbled upon it a few months ago.

lilsis said...

Wow... two years, Congratulations!! So who do I need to bribe? Daisy?

Suzy Quilter said...

Two years? Wow. I've just started, so I hope to make it to that point some day. Fabric giveaway...did someone say "fabric"? LOL! :o)

Darlene said...

Wow, two years! Congrats! I'm glad you started blogging, too. Yours one of the first blogs I found. woohoo!

((HUGS))

Jeanne said...

Congratulations on two years of blogging! I just passed one year, but two...that's a long time. Such a great giveaway. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Deb S said...

Hard to believe it's been 2 years. Both you and Daisy have given us all many days of interesting blogs.
Congrats and Happy Blogging.

Tingirl said...

Two years already!:D Congratulations!

Since I just raffled off a popular jelly roll tonight, I wouldn't mind getting to choose one myself.

Leah S said...

Ohh, that's a clever way to take care of the post office issue. The downside is you're gonna have people like me checking out The Fat Quarter Shop to see what we COULD be getting, even though we haven't been to the site before. :) Ahh! Temptation in our faces. :P

Red Geranium Cottage said...

WOW Congrats Vicky!!!! Who wouldn't want to win a jelly roll?!!! I know I would! Happy Blogiversary.

2 years? Time flies, doesn't it? I'd love to be entered into the drawing, please! I sure do miss SoCal! Especially with this icy weather we are having here in SW Missouri! Can't get out the driveway or down the gravel road to the county road to get to town. Lucky for me, we have food and electricity. At least I can quilt!

selzttmaxcgGreat going, Vicky. Sure glad you posted your blog addy again. I lost it when my computer fried last week. And Congrats on your blogging anniversary. I had been stopping by often but not leaving a comment but I want you to know I've been there before and will be back! Ardeth

Doodlebug Gail said...

Congratulations Vicky! Time flies when you're having fun .... what a journey it has been following your quilting and now your stashbusting. Hugs and take care.

Carolyn said...

Congratulations! I can't believe I've been reading your blog for 2 years. I look forward to many more!

Tigger said...

I think I see what's going on here. You want to win the title of Stash Busting Queen so you're very cleverly building up other people's stash so your's looks like it shrank even more by comparison. Ooooooh, yer a sneaky one Ms. Vicky....I can respect that. Count me in!

Congratulations! I'm a new quilter and am so motivated by your quilts. Since I'm new to quilting I don't have a stash, so...would love to win the drawing. Thanks for sharing your talent with us!

Holly said...

Wow Vicky, 2 years, that's great! I tried blogging once but I don't have much to say. Heck, I speak with my Mom once or twice a month and it's usually "So what have you been doing?" "Oh not much, how about you?" "Oh not much."

Congrats, Vicky, on 2 years of inspirational blogging! I've reterned to quilting after a 25 year hiatus & it took me a bit to figure out what the heck a "jelly roll" even was. Wow! What a neat new (to me) innovation. But even if you don't pick me, I'm a winner because I found your blog.
