I was trying to figure out a catchy title that would summarize what I wanted to say in this 3-part blog but I just couldn't come up with one in a few words. I decided direct and to the point would be the best solution.
Part 1: Status on SIL Harlequin quilt.
The fabric is all cut. I didn't really count as I was cutting, just eyeballed and hoped I'd have enough. Turns out, I did. This will be a large lap quilt. I liked the way this looked laid out live but as I see the picture, I'm not so sure. It's no matter, I've learned long ago (okay, okay, I'm still learning!) to just go with my first instinct when I'm "winging" a quilt. I'll let you know how it's coming along soon.
Part 2: 200th post
Yes, ladies and gentlemen. You've read my rambles for a number of posts (or at least you've pretended to read them) and I wanted to reward your perserverence, your preverse need to torture yourselves, your great acting skills in pretending you care...
FINE! I just want to try to get more followers and I want to use this as a way to get people to come and see me.
No, you don't believe that either? Argh. Perhaps I should just tell you I wanted to celebrate 200 posts with a giveaway.
Part 3: Fall Into Fall Quilt Bloggers Giveaway
As it so happens, I was on Quixotic Crafter's Blog and saw this blogland wide giveaway day. It coincides with my 200 posts and I love joining these large blogland events so I AM IN. I'll host my 200th post giveaway at the same time. Jury is still out if I will have 1 full giveaway or a 2-parter. I'm leaning toward a 2 part.
Fall Into Fall Giveaway, follow the link. You have until Sept. 29th (US) to note your participation to the hostess.
Have a good one everyone!
