Wow it’s hard to believe that it has been a whole year since I first started this blog! I started the blog because I was a low point in my health and having lost most of my friends I didn’t really have anyone to talk to about my garden. In fact more often than not I was made to feel bad about having a garden so I became guilty about having one and kept it to myself. Last June I had all these words were running around in my head that I just couldn’t get out and the idea hit me. What about a blog? In a blog I could write about anything that I wanted as often as I wanted too and just maybe the guilt would go away and I could be proud of what I am doing.
Fast forward a year later and my health is still poor, but I can now look back and see I have a whole year of things to be proud of. I had a great garden last year; I tried new recipes and for the most part succeeded. I even started quilting. Heck I started 2 quilting bees and joined 3 others and took part in 2 blog hops. I can honestly say that sitting here last year I never thought any of that would be possible.
As I started out on my blog journey I came across a number of blogs that have opened my eyes and my heart. I can honestly say that I am a better person now for reading them! So Thank you!! I never imagined that anyone would want to follow what I had to say and here there are now 96 people that have chosen to follow my little blog. I can’t tell you how much that means to me. Although I do write this blog for myself, knowing that people out there are reading helps me to stick at it. It helps to motivate me to get things done and to try new things without shame or judgement. Well you all may think that I am crazy, but no one has gone out and said that directly...LOL Today’s post will be number 278 and I thank you all for sticking with me. I can’t wait to see what the next year brings.
As a little thank you for following me I decided to have a little giveaway today of a few of my favourite things. The lucky winner will get all 5 things. I have 2 fat quarters in my favourite fabrics. 2 packages of my favourite seeds and my most favourite things is Mr. Pickles, but I don’t want to give him away so instead I have included a bar of Swiss chocolate since Mr.P is both from Switzerland and sweet J
P.S If you would never use the fabric then I will make you a little gift using the fabric instead. Maybe a nice mug rug! And if you feel you would never use the seeds than I will send along some extra fabric. So there you go everyone wins!
All you have to do to enter is be a follower, since this is a thank you giveaway to my followers for following meJ. Just leave a comment telling me whatever you want. If you are a non-reply blogger please leave a way for me to contact you if you win. I will be making the draw using ramdom.org on Monday June 4th.
