Finally I made it ...

... to 100 posts that is. As promised (I know, it's over a week ago now-sorry!) I have some goodies to give away to a lucky winner drawn "out of the hat" from the names of those who leave a comment on this post. I'll give you two weeks 'cos I know only too well how life gets in the way of blogging! So leave a comment by 26 August and if you are posting anonymously you will have to include your name (so I know who you are - well, obviously, doh! lol.) Up for grabs is seven 5 1/2" by width of fabric strips of batiks cut from some of my recent purchases - and there have been many - it's quilt show season over here in NZ - not to mention the usual fabric shops I haunt which had fabric that just couldn't stay there!
That's 38 1/2 inches of fabric. Well over 1 yard for all the Americans out there and a tad under 1 metre for everyone else.

I had blogging woes with the other blog I administer, our club blog for Cotton On Quilters. Apparently they thought it was a spam blog and it disappeared off the face of the earth and took a while to find its way to a new home at http://cottonon.blogspot.com I didn't get photos of our club meeting last week but there is still eye candy for you from previous months. Enjoy!

drat, i'm not first! never mind, i'm in! I've given up sewing for the afternoon, (I'm in too much pain from sinusitis - can't take any more pain killer till dinner time, roll on dinner...) but I've done two half blocks with leaves and two whole blocks with poppies - all raw edge applique and machine sitched - for the first 8" row of your row by row quilt challenge.

Hi Helen, Congratulations on 100 posts! We've finally chosen 72 blocks for my Heart Quilt and put rich red sashings in between them! It will be a cherished gift during my recovery and I know it will be very useful when I'm slobbing on the lounge now and again! I hope I get drawn out to receive some of your gorgeous batiks. They are beautiful.
Many Thanks again Karen
