It has been a very eventful week, with all that has been happening, and I had intended to do a post on Friday last week, but it slipped by. July 31 was the date, 4 years ago that I started writing my blog. I am still amazed by the number of people that seem to visit and read what I write, but in the overall scheme of things, my statistics don’t rate that high. But that is not my reason for blogging anyway, as this is for my own records. But I thank those who do visit, and especially those who leave comments. One blog I visit and read celebrated 9 years of writing, and something like 1800 posts in that time! So far I have managed 4 years, and almost 480 posts.
July 31 was also special for another reason, as it was 43 years since my husband proposed to me. And today, August 4, it is 42 years since I was married. That time has gone so fast and lots of water has gone under the bridge. So while I might not celebrate today, I will certainly be thinking about the day.
Below are 2 quilts made by Pat, both with the same range of fabrics. They will be made into quillows for her great grandchildren. First one is quilted all over with Popcorn.
This one is quilted all over with a pattern called Pearl Stream, which gives it a very different texture.
The next 2 were made by Margaret, and the Puzzle quilt was also quilted all over with Popcorn.
And this one was quilted with a pattern called Dancing Hearts.
The next 2 quilts are the same design, and made by Sally for her family, and both quilted all over with Dancing Hearts.
This week there will be a family gathering at my brother’s to celebrate the wedding of my nephew, which was in July. They had a very quiet family wedding in Fiji, attended by their immediate family. I am looking forward to seeing some photos.
And of course we had the arrival of my grand daughter last week. So with all these events in mind, I have decided that it is time for another giveaway on my blog. Not exactly sure what I shall “giveaway” yet, but if you leave me a comment, I will enter your name into the draw for something. I will accept email and phone messages, as I know that some find it difficult to work out the comments on the blog. I shall take comments until Sunday evening, and draw on Monday. Overseas comments are welcome.
Looking forward to hearing from you,
Blessings, From Jude
