About how fortunate I am and how my life has changed over the past year and a half since I started blogging. I guess the biggest change…or the one that has had the greatest impact on me…are the friends I’ve made, not only from places that I’ve only dreamt about, but from countries and cities that I’ve visited in the past…BB (Before Blogging). You all know who you are and I consider it an honor that our cyber paths have crossed. And for those I’ve yet to meet, I’m looking forward to making your acquaintance as well.
I know…I’m a big sap.
I also got to thinking that just a short eleven days ago, I released the first block of a ten month BOM of my first ever quilt design, Raggedy & Friends. If you missed it, just click here and you’ll be able to see it. As of this morning, just shy of 2,200 people have downloaded Block 1. I am completely humbled and I want thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your overwhelming support.

Allow me to share a few photos of some of the completed first blocks.
Here is Belén’s first block…
And a closer look…
Margie is making Raggedy & Friends for her granddaughter and here’s her completed first block.
And Catherine’s Block 1.
I just love how everyone has made their blocks their own!
So, while I’m in this happy, sappy mood, I got to thinking…
How can I say thanks to you all? Why with a little token of my appreciation, of course!
I painted this Autumn-themed still life on a little sewing box a few years back and I’d like to share it with one of you. No jumping through hoops…just leave me a comment at the end of this post if you’d like the opportunity for it to come and live at your house.
