3rd Blogoversary!

I missed it by 1 day but I couldn't let my Blogoversary go past unremembered for a 3rd time!

How time flies. It certainly doesn't feel like 3 years since I took the very scary step of starting my blog. So much has happened since then! We've had a baby, moved house, I've gone back to work twice, learned so much on the quilting front & met some fantastic bloggers (both virtually and in person).

This was the first picture I posted...

There were several projects I started back then that are still in the UFO basket too...

...but plenty more that have been completed.

Do you ever look back at your blog and see how far you've come? Do you still love the items you were making back then? Has your style changed dramatically? Walking down memory lane can be lots of fun.

To celebrate my 3rd Blogoversary I've decided to have a giveaway. I haven't picked the prize yet but I'm sure it will be something you'll love. If you would like a chance to win just leave me a comment below about your blogging journey. I will draw a winner on Sunday afternoon at 4pm.

Hi Tracy - Congratulations on your blogging milestone - it's been wonderful to meet you a few times & also read your posts.

My blogging journey started Feb 2012 - I took the plunge after reading blogs for a few months & deciding to change my situation of Sewing Loneliness, ie none of my friends sew or stitch or care about my hobby.
It's been a fun journey of learning, reading, inspiration, spending, & of course lots of making.
What has surprised me the most about my journey is that I've become a maker of quilts, something I never thought I'd do!!

Here's to many more years of your blogging, & to seeing eachother a few times a year too!!

Congratulations Tracy.
I am sew pleased to have meet you and Miss M and enjoy reading your posts.
Just checked to see when I started blogging and it was in 2009, hard to believe that. Sometimes I go through older posts and it is fun to see how many quilts and projects I've made over the 6years...
Hope to catch up again soon.

Congratulations on 3 years of blogging, Tracy. When I look back at early posts I can see how much the boys have grown. They are no longer those cute little boys but young men!
