Bird & pear pinkeep (giveaway)

Time has just flown by....
not bird/flying, but clock hands spinning rapidly...

One year ago today, I tried something new.
New to me:  one blog.
The blog where I have shared my thoughts and ramblings.
Shared about my Great-Grandma B
and the promise I made to her a long time ago about learning something new every year,
about friends and family,
about things that make me smile,
things that make me think,
things that make me go "Huh?"
About quilting and hand embroidery, and pattern making.
About recipes and friends and family and love and sadness.

I know that there have been earth-shattering catastrophes and destruction.
There are still wars being fought, and diseases not conquered.
I, personally this year, have lost family members that will only live on in my memories and written word.
But, it has been a great year, in my opinion.
Another year to learn and laugh and pray and live!

Another thing that I learned this year, besides blogging,
it that the world is a very small place.
The "7th degree of Kevin Bacon" kind of small.
I have met in person and in cyberspace sooooo many truly wonderful people.
People that are not so different than myself. 
We all know someone that knows someone that is our neighbor, friend, colleague.

That is what this post is about:
One year of blogging!
Of meeting folks from across this nation, from around the world.
Wonderful people that like to quilt, or stitch, or cook, or laugh, or write.
Folks that I have so much in common with.

To thank everyone
for stopping by and reading and commenting
on this new thing for me this year- this blog,
I would like to have a
blogiversary give-away.
Leave a comment
(by Saturday, Aug. 7th, midnight e.s.t.)
about your favorite memory of this year.
I will randomly draw a comment on Sunday, August 8th.
The winner will receive this
pin keep of my own design...

Bird with an emery Pear on a candlestick pin keep...
(gotta think of a  better name!)

He could be flying to your home soon!
Good luck, and thanks for visiting!


  1. Congratulations on your one year blogiversary! Blogging is such a wonderful thing! :0) My favorite memory from the past year would have to be when everyone made blocks to be made into a quilt for us after John's accident. I was totally blown away by all the people who contributed to that project. I'm fortunate to count most of them as my friends! :0)

  2. That is an awesome design for a pin keep! Congratulation on your one year anniversary of blogging.
    My favorite memory of this year is walking into the nursery at the hospital and meeting my first grandchild, my dear granddaughter Audrey!

  3. Congrats on one year of lots of typing and quilting!

    My best memory from this past year was buying our first house. And you know what they say it takes a lot of work and love to make a house into a home.

  4. Congratulations Debra. By the way, you are a "pro" at blogging. :-)

    My favorite memory this year is seeing over 40 family members in one day (family reunion) and I have not been with that many relatives since forever. I loved catching up with all. :-)

  5. Congratulations on your first anniversary. How appropriate this is my first visit to your blog. I came via your button on Wool Crazy.

    My favourite memory for this year was celebrating my mom's 85th birthday with her, taking her for dinner at a favourite restaurant. We also had a lovely driving holiday down to Palm Springs to celebrate her birthday earlier in the year.


Thank you so much for taking the time to visit!
