Thank you for being a friend!

November 2011

Here is my November mosaic. Mostly I have been making the ROYGBIV quilt, which should be finished this weekend. Although there are not a large number of projects, it has been a fun sewing month, all the rainbow colour has been great fun. I am linking this to Lynne, at Lily's Quilts' Fresh Sewing Day. I encourage you to have a look at all the other posts linked there - they are always full of beautiful and inspiring projects.
Fresh Sewing Day

In other news, this is post 100 for this blog. When I started this blog last March, I did not expect that I would like blogging as much as I do. I thank everyone who reads my blog and especially those of you who take the time to leave me comments. I have truly enjoyed the connection with the on line quilting community and hope that the next 100 posts will be just as fun.

To celebrate this blogging milestone, I decided to do something different. Instead of giving away something to my loyal readers, I made a donation to Doctors Without Borders - a group that provides assistance all over the world, all of the time. Thank you all for inspiring me and being my internet friends.

Not to worry, however, I am planning to participate in the Sew Mama Sew give away day on December 12 - so there will be an opportunity to win something here too very soon. I just have to decide what to give away - I think I am leaning toward making something but if things get busy, it will be some fabric instead. Here is the button for the rules, maybe you will have a give away too.


Thanks again for the support and friendship.

Best,

Leanne
