The Big 4-0-0

Well, this is it. My 400th post. I decided to hold off on posting until after the holidays were really over and everything was back to routine. I am so proud of all I have accomplished here. Not just the quilting and sewing, but learning all the things I have learned in order to be a blogger and to try and make my blog a place I love. I hope it is a place you love to visit. I want to inspire you and make you want to return. That is why I read the blogs I read. They inspire me.

I have been very busy getting organized for the new year. I have cleaned the sewing room and made a list of things that need to be finished. I have begun working on those things. I am taking lots of pictures to show you. I have plans and I have goals. But, I also have surgery coming up in 3 weeks. I have no idea how long I will be unable to sew, so I am stocking up on pictures of things I can share with you during that time, because a blog post without pictures is boring, to me.

So here are your pictures for today. This is what I am giving away, to celebrate my 400th post:
                         This lovely bundle of pink fabrics.
      I wanted something special. I wanted something that was meaningful, at least to me.
      This beautiful bundle represents my color of the year, pink, for breast cancer.
    Each fat quarter is absolutely gorgeous. Not a bad one in the whole lot.
I found this lovely bundle here, at Fort Worth Fabric Studio. They put together lots of lovely bundles there. I shop there frequently.
What do you have to do to win this lovely bundle? Simple. You must be a follower of my blog. Only followers, new or old, will be eligible. Second, answer this question: If you could put together a bundle of fat quarters using only one color (plus white or a neutral) what color would you choose? So, let's do this: Leave one comment to answer the question. Leave a second comment for another entry, telling me how you follow my blog. No reply commenters leave your email in your comment or I will not be able to contact you if you win.
I will leave this open for 2 weeks. Winner will be chosen on Monday, January 19 after 5pm eastern. Everyone is eligible no matter where you live, but you must be a follower.
Thanks so much, for stopping by.

  14. Pink is my favorite color, but if I were to choose a single color, I would have to go with either blue or violet. These colors have a greater value range, so it would offer a lot of design possibilities.

  15. Congrats on # 400!! I always look forward to your post and can't wait to see what's in store for the next year. Love the pink bundle! Normally I would say that aqua would be my choice but for the new year I think I would put together a pale green or a peach bundle.
