One Year Blog-aversary Give Away !!!!!


I wasn't on the ball enough to realize that I let my one year anniversary slip by! May 12th 2007 to be exact. Little did I know how big my world would become in regards to the friends I would meet. And bigger still would be the amount of inspiration and encouragement that I would receive just by sharing my own ups and downs on my creative journey.
I started this blog to coincide with a Crazy Quilt Round Robin I was involved in, to chronicle the beginnings of our up north adventure and to stay in touch with family and friends. I was yet to realize at the time how important blogging would become to me, both in the reading of all my favorites and by putting my own thoughts out there through "Crazy Here and Now".
THANK YOU, EACH and EVERYONE OF YOU FOR VISITING ME THROUGH THIS SITE !!!



In honor of the Lupine blooms up here in the northwoods, I put together a little fabric collection of lupine colors and the "Dear Hannah" book that is a take off from the popular "Dear Jane".


My husband will draw a name from all comments received to THIS post, next Saturday morning, June 28. All comments till midnite June 27 will be in the hat. Doesn't matter where you live, if it's Mozambique, this will be mailed to you. I look forward to hearing from you via the comment box! Thanks again everyone!

PS. Now that my camera is back, I'll be back to posting soon..

Till then, Jane

Oh sweetie, happy birthday. I'm so glad we met in blogland. Your work is such an inspiration to me...someday we will have to meet- I can always find an excuse to make it as far as Eagle River!
Please put me down for your Dear Hannah drawing, since you know how I am a sucker for all those big projects!

Hi Jane,
Glad to see you back, and oh my, what gorgeous lupine. I was so excited with just one plant, and to think that you have a whole field full...love the pink ones, too.

I'd love to participate in your drawing....but mostly want to wish you a happy blog-birthday...so glad to have "met" you...and maybe some day it will be for real!

Julia said...

Congrats on your anniversary! What a super give away! I love the lupine color way you have chosen for the fabrics. Since you would send to Mozambique I guess, Germany would be fine, too ... :-)). Thanks for entering me in the drawing! Julia

How lovely those fabrics are! And I have always wanted to try a Dear Jane quilt. I am just about done with the Cival War Diary quilt and will need a new project, you must have been reading my mind. Thanks for sharing.
