Has it really been three years?

First of all: thank you so much to everyone who has come with suggestions on what to do with my CC quilt! I love the fact that so many have put their two cents in. I have now decided what to do with it - and it includes lots of more triangles ;o)

On January 30th 2007 the "Quiltoholic" blog was founded. When I started it, I had no idea it would bring me in touch with so many lovely people all over the world. Nor did I realize how much inspiration and support there are in Blogland. I want to send a warm thank you hug to everyone who have left me a comment or more over these three years!

And keeping with the tradition of blogiversary celebrations, I have a small giveaway. I have thought long and hard about what to do, and have decided to give away this little 12.5" stitchery quilt:



It is a Bronwyn Hayes design called "My Friends", and is from her Polka Dot Girls patterns - I'm thinking it is appropriate for this occasion.

If you want to be in the draw for this little quilt, all you have to do is leave me a comment and make sure your e-mail address doesn't show up as noreply-comment@blogger.com (or at least make a link to your blog), so that I can get in touch with you if you are the lucky winner. The draw will take place on Thursday around mid-day Norwegian time.

Best of luck, and wishes for a happy and creative weekend!
Hugs and stitches from
Anne Ida and

Hei Anne Ida og gratulerer så mykje med jubileet! Eg skal ta meg tid å gå gjennom bloggehistoria di seinare i dag. Du har betydd mykje for meg siste 3 åra, med mykje støtte og oppmuntring både på prosjekt og anna. Håpar du kosar deg med Anton, han ser så fredeleg og koseleg ut, kunne faktisk tenkt meg ein liknande sjølv!
Då minner du meg på at eg sjølv har jubileum snart, allereie i februar...
Ha ei riktig fine helg!

Congratulations on 3 years of blogging. I really enjoy visiting your blog and seeing all the amazing work you do. Just yesterday I was showing a friend my Blue and white SBS swap quilt and she was admiring the tumbling blocks block that you had made. She likes the 3-D affect.I told her it was from Norway.Thank you for the inspiration and I do look forward to reading many more of your blog entries.
Best Wishes to you!
