Time sure flies when you are having fun.Today marks my one-year bloggiversary. I would have never imagined the world that was about to open up to me when I hit that 'Publish Post' button the very first time. Through the blogs I read, I have seen beautiful quilts, shared patterns and recipes. I've shared daily triumphs and tragedies, watched home improvements and renovations, seen children and grandchildren growing up, been amused by pets and their antics, and come along on vacations to places I might never have been. Through my blog, I hope I have shared some of the same from my little corner of the world. The friendships that have been made in the last year warm my heart - I'm still a simple girl, but I sure am a lucky girl.
Of course I want to join those who've gone before me and offer a little prize drawing to commemorate this day. Everyone who leaves a comment on this blog from now until my next post will have a chance to win a little something. In addition, I have joined Carol at Brown Quilts for the Pay It Forward Challenge. The first three who say they would like to join me in the comment section will receive something hand-made by me in the next 365 days (honestly you won't have to wait a year *s*) Then make the same offer on your blog to Pay It Forward to 3 others - Easy, Fun and Painless.
My first post, I closed with a picture of Harper and today I will do the same. I sure didn't know what I was getting myself into when entered the world of blogging . . . but I so glad that I did.

I have just recently started to blog myself, and I want to thank you for the warm welcome that you gave me.

Bren said...

Happy Blogaversary!! I love your blog and feel blessed it was one of the first I found in blogland! Here is to another great year of insiration from Libby.

Katie said...

Happy Day! So enjoy your blog and that you visit me. Time does fly when we're having fun. Due to a computer crash, I lost the exact day of my first posting and had to start all over so guess I'll have to celebrate a whole month. "G" I took Finn up on her Pay Forward challenge but haven't had any takers on my posting. I think it is everywhere. Maybe I'll just make some goodie and send it ? Got to get my space quilt done before I think about that.
Again, Happy, Happy! Katie and Kipper

I'm so glad that you decided to enter the world of blogging. It's been a fun 'ride'.

I'd love to play "Pay it Forward" with you but I've already committed and I'm not sure I'd have three more sign up on my blog.

I'm so happy to have found your blog, it's been such inspiration to me....okay enough of the mushy stuff. I've been thinking about how a girl can make mustard but can't make jam. How does that happen????

Happy Blogaversary and many more to come. I don't think anyone realizes how rewarding blogging is until they start it for themselves. Who knew there were so many kindred spirits out there.

Hi Libby,
Happy Blogiversary! I can't remember how we connected, since I'm not a quilter and many of your commenters are! I'm so glad we did, and I hope you continue your delightful posts for as long as it makes you happy!!
Love the quilt and the pic of Harper..
