I started blogging four years ago.
My working life had come to a forced end, I was learning to deal with the reality of my limitations health wise, and you know what? I was lonely. Going from a job you absolutely love to suddenly staying at home on your own every day kinda sucks! I was so relieved to rediscover my passion for sewing and crafting, and so excited to discover a whole online community who were as nuts (about it) as I am!
I found Blogs, I found flickr (sadly missed) and later Instagram, and its all so much fun. I took part in Quilt alongs, Charm Swaps, I hosted my own Charm Swap, my own Quilt-along, I did an assortment of mini quilt and pillow swaps, the Finish-along, I really got stuck in!
(Tissues out) Quite honestly, my life has been made so much the richer for it all. For all of you.
In the back of my head I was always going to see if it lasted 5 years before I did the whole "lets celebrate" jazz hands, but really, the fact that I'm still managing to pop in the odd blog this year astounds me! I mean, wowza. Motherhood. Did not think that was coming at all.... And here we are. You cheer me on through it all, and I want you to know it's truly appreciated!
So, I've been plotting and planning, and I've come up with this.
The FOUR YEARS / FOUR DAY GIVEAWAY!
Come back tomorrow for day one...
