One year!!!

One year ago I sat down at my computer and rather nervously registered a blog and wrote my first post. I don't think I had a realistic idea of what to expect from blogging, and what I have gotten exceeded every expectation! Through the community of blogland I have met some fantastic people, made some wonderful friendships and been able to share in the creativity of women I truly admire. I thank you all for being a part of my world this year!

Keeping to the tradition in blogland of celebrating a blogiversary, I'm having a giveaway :o) If you comment on this post by nine o'clock Monday morning (Norwegian time), I'll enter your name in the draw for these goodies



Best of luck :o)
Sincerely, Anne Ida

Congratulations on your one year anniversary of blogging. I am so glad to have met you on the SBS list and consequently here. This is one of my favourite blogs to visit. It is amazing to see how wide the quilting world is. My eyes have certainly been opened and it is though blogs like yours that this can happen. Some day I too hope to have enough courage to establish my own blog.
All the best.
