The Grow Your Blog Party is today!
Welcome to my little spot of Pieceful Perspective! My daughter will roll her eyes at my pun because I’m still so very embarrassing but in short, I’m all about the pieces. Pieces of fabric, pieces of chocolate (and oh brother, do I like chocolate), loving my kids to pieces, it’s all in there.
Thanks first off to Miss Vicki at 2 Bags Full for organising such an awesome event for the 2nd year running. She’s done an awful lot of work to make this happen and we’re all blessed for it.
So who am I? I’m the chatty one. That’s all you need to know. 🙂 I am a quilter by passion and an admin assistant to pay the rest of the bills. I have three adorable, beautiful, opinionated teenagers, a big fluffy white cat, and a very supportive significant other that sweetly ignores the growing stash of fabric threatening to take over the house. In all my copious spare time (read “next to none”), I’m longarm quilting for clients, giving private lessons in all aspects of quilting, organising semi-annual quilt retreats, and trying to keep up with various virtual quilting bees. I am an Aurifil Addict/Supplier and will play with Quilter’s Dream batting right out of the packet because it’s as pleasing as the quilt top going on it.
So why do I blog? Because I love to share. Information, techniques, small wonders I find totally cool. Because I love to write and don’t do it nearly enough to satisfy the need. Because I’m a Tech Geek and I thought creating my own blog platform from an off-the-shelf layout would be fun. One year in, I’m not sure that FUN is what I would call the coding situations I find myself in. 🙂 But I can happily say I’ve done it myself. Probably a lot like why I quilt. It allows me to be busy and yet productive. With Purpose.
To carry the Sharing theme through, I have a giveaway. I would like to offer one twin (single) size (93″ x 72″ / 232 x 180cm) Quilter’s Dream batting in your choice of loft & fibres (cotton, poly, bamboo, wool, or recycled).
Let’s keep this simple. All you need to do is comment below. Say hello, tell me your favourite colour, whatever strikes your fancy. No hoops to jump through, bells to rings, or standing on one foot. One comment, one chance to win, open to everyone, anywhere in the world. A winner will be drawn on 15 February, at 6pm, Swiss time. If you don’t have a blog, be sure to leave me an email address in the comments. No reply entries will be disqualified. Please note that I have to moderate all first-time commentors to my website! I will moderate the comments throughout the day so hopefully the delay before the comment appears will be short. This avoids people having to complete a verification test and keeps spammers at bay as well. Thanks in advance for your patience. 🙂
I do hope you’ll have a nose around on the site and see what all I’m up to. You can follow me through Bloglovin’ or via email updates directly to your mailbox.
UPDATE: This drawing is now closed. You can see the winning post here.
Thanks for stopping by & Happy Quilting!
