Stray Stitches 200 Post Giveaway!

I have been blogging for a while now. I have meet so many great people. I have found a world where people are as obsessed with fabric as I am. I have learned so many new projects that I will need the rest of my life to make. I understand the art of taking my time and measure twice and cut once. I have learned that scraps are GREAT! I have learned my limits of how much to try to do in a month. One thing that is so great about blogging is the friends I have made. We will probably never meet in person but that is ok. We all have our own lives and responsibilities. But we can come here to this little corner of the world and share with each other our love of all things crafty. Thank you my dear Fabric Friends!!

One of the great ladies that I have "met" is Linda over at Stray Stitches. She is a great lady. She is so organized on her blog. I love how she has it broke up into sections. She starts off with a saying, then a thought, then a Photo Fact of the day, a little section where she tries to help us learn about something we might not know. Next she chats about what is going on in here world like what she is working on. One of my favorite parts of her blog is she has a Today's Goals spot. How great, I know that I need to do that. If I have it planned out, I am more apt to get it done. Then when the month is gone I can she that I have gotten more done then I thought. Or at least I had plans to get more done, LOL!! Next she has a Giveaway section where she lists well giveaways, LOL! Her last part is a Final Thought. It is usually about anything.

Well I just thought you might like to get to know here a little better. She is great and she is having a giveaway for her 200th post. How wonderful!! so hop over to her blog, give it a try, and enter into her giveaway. She is giving away a $25.00 gift card to Fat Quarter Shop. That would be great!!

 And because I like a blog with pictures here are a few of a storm that went through our town.
This one is of a sun rise. I love clouds and the way the change with different light.
I hope your day is great and you get to spend some time sewing.


  1. A lovely posting Shannon. Yes Linda is a great 'blogging buddy' to sew many. I love her system of blogging and her sharing of all those wonderful 'finds' on the inter-net. Thoughts, goals, plans - in order or in disarray - we quilters somehow get it done - and it is nice to share it all with others.
