One Year Bloggiversary!

Today is my one year bloggiversary! Happy bloggiversary to me! I can't believe I made it this far. I was really chicken one year ago to take the leap into blogland. Who would have thought that one year later I'd have managed to post over 250 messages, and had over 56,000 visitors. Amazing! I've met some of the loveliest people too. The world is an amazing place.

I've loved the fact that so many bloggers have been conducting give-aways for their milestones, so I thought I'd jump on the bandwagon too! Please leave a comment on my blog and you could win the table runner pictured above. I made it on Sunday and finished the binding yesterday. I made a couple of these for gifts while I was in the US last year. And just so you don't think I was working applique like a maniac - that is a cheater cloth there in the middle. So go on ... leave a comment, I'd love to hear from you - and I'd love to see some lurkers come out of the woodwork too! I will draw a name either on Thursday or Friday depending on work commitments ... so - ready ... set ... go!

Coming out of thr woodwork here!!! Heck I'd come out of anything to win that table runner.
I've been reading your blog for about 10 months and it is in my list of favorites. I check it every day and am saddened on the days you are either away or busy. You provide so much inspiration to quilters all over the world. I love your work and the special little things you do for thank you gifts...they have given me some great ideas for thank you gifts also. I love your Starstruck Quilt...and I especially love the half stars for the borders!
Happy Blogaversary and keep on keeping on.....

Quilting Pirate said...

Happy Anniversary! Lovely table runner!!

Sharon said...

Hi Tazzie! Your tablerunner is really lovely. Was it hard to do the "pointy" binding? I've strayed away from angled quilt pieces because I'm not sure I could handle the points properly when it came to the binding.

Happy Blogiversary. . .you definitely inspire me to "git 'er done". . . have you considered inspirational tapes??? Just a thought! LOL

Happy Blogiversary, Tazzie! What a great use of that Thimbleberries pre-printed fabric! I never did the Lazy Crazy BOM and don't think I have any of that, but I DO have other pre-printed fabrics, and you've inspired me! Thanks!

My comment here will ensure someone else will win! LOL

The runner is gorgeous! Happy Blogiversary!

(Hugs)

dianne said...

I am one of (probably several) of the 56,000 visitors to your blog. Thanks Tazzie for taking time to showcase so many lovely projects. Your runner is great and beautifully coordinated in colour as usual. Well Done. Could you tell or show me/all of us if there is a good way to turn the binding on the non 90 degree angles of this shape runner. Maybe the only way if to use bias to bind with. Just this week I have fiddled for ages to get neat binding on a similar shaped table runner.

Jeanne said...

I love the way blog give-aways bring out the comments! Congratulations on your one year bloggiversary. I've enjoyed reading your posts for many months. The table runner is a great prize for the lucky winner.

Quilt Mommy said...

Oh this runner is just gorgeous. Yours is one of the most inspiring blogs to me on the internet. I just love your fabric choices, and scrappy/traditional taste. Thanks for sharing with us, and happy bloggiversary! :)

PamQuilts said...

Hello Tazzie from a lurker! I read over 30 quilter blogs everyday and you're one of them. I would be honored to be chosen to own something quilted by you. You are an inspiration. I enjoy your photos.

Hi Tazzie,
Meant to tell you, I LOVE your red quilt!! 71 comments...WOW. My chances are diminishing!! Linda and I went shopping today and each bought the same kit~~heaven help us~~we really needed another kit. Don't think we should keep shopping together, except it is such fun.

Mary said...

I feel fortunate to have run across your blog...I never knew that Itsy Shop existed...so I learned something new in addition to a simple blog read. Love pictures as they inspire me to get off the computer and get busy!

Leanne said...

Guess what?! I am always checking your blog for new entries and wondered why you hadn't posted anything since April 30. Today I realised that when I saved you into my 'favourites' the address was saved with that entry and not the main page! Doh! Its OK, I'm with it now! LOL! Beautiful table runner and Happy Anniversary!

Hi Tazzie, Here I go again - falling behind on my reading and missing a chance to win something. A very belated happy blog-anniversary to you! I love seeing all the wonderful work you do - what a wonderful thing this blogging world and Internet is that allow us all to share from opposite sides of the world!
