Or perhaps at least sew with it.
What we have here is a little First Blog-iversary!
Of course, I want to thank each and every one of you for visiting and commenting. But I also want to thank everyone for ceaseless inspiration, loads of chuckles and your many kind words. Thank you! Really and for true, thank you!
Without getting too teary-eyed about the whole thing, what I get from blogs and blogging is the impetus to try to make bold choices in quilting. I have been pondering a project for a while and have been feeling lukewarm about fabrics for it. Well, I made a round of blog-reads this morning and the proverbial lightbulb lit up. I was feeling lukewarm because the fabrics I was considering were not “me.” Late today, I gathered up fabrics left and right that are me fabrics. I just needed to re-focus. Plowing around reading about others’ projects and creative processes keeps me reflecting and considering–it keeps my brain moving.
That said, what blog-iversary would be complete without a give-away??
Because I so enjoy a tasty cake, I thought it would be appropriate to give away a cake, of sorts. A Layer Cake.
This is a delicious Moda Prairie Paisley Layer Cake. yum yum
Now, I’m going to make you work for your treat. We are going to have a little guessing game which involves our in-transit coffee maker. This seems a little diabolical since I don’t even know the answer to this question myself, but in keeping with the theme of bold chioices, I’m doing it anyway!
In order to have a chance to win, you’ll have to guess when the coffee maker will arrive.
Here is the information that I have on its current whereabouts:
1. The coffee maker has been shipped.
2. The coffee maker is estimated to arrive between April 16 and April 21.
3. The coffee maker is currently in New Stanton, Pennsylvania, USA.
4. The coffee maker needs to come to Ferndale, Michigan, USA.
5. The coffee maker is traveling via UPS.
6. I don’t know the type of UPS service by which the coffee maker is traveling. I can tell you we selected free shipping.
So, what do you think? I will put all correct guesses in a hat and draw from the correct guesses. If you guess more than once, I will only consider your first guess for the drawing. I will accept entries from now until the coffee maker arrives. And if it hasn’t arrived by the end of the day on April 21, I will be crying too hard to ever possibly draw a winner.
OK? Have at it and, again, thank you!
