500th Post

Wow! I can't believe it, my 500th post has rolled around - time has gone so fast! I wasn't organised enough to celebrate my second bloggiversary, so I decided I'd make a gift for my 500th instead.

Well, you know the best laid plans thing ... I haven't made anything, but the runner in the picture is what I made for my first bloggiversary, so I'll make another one for this milestone. Sooner rather than later I hope.

If you'd like to be in the running to receive a runner, and help me celebrate my 500th post, leave me a comment. I'll draw a name at 8pm on Sunday evening ( central Australia time). I'm having the best time with this whole blogging thing, have 'met' so many entirely wonderful people, and can't believe I haven't run out of things to say!

And this is the top I'm quilting right now. Isn't it cute - I wish I could remember what it's called - I think it's being kitted up for the shop.

The fabrics are just lovely with hints of gold, and the little panels with the bird print, just gorgeous.

Anyways, better get back to the sewing room ... be sure to leave a comment - you could be the proud owner of a new table runner!
