10 Year Blogiversary March 2008

It's hard to believe, but 10 years ago today I started my blog to keep track of things I had sewn.
So I guess that means today is my Blogiversary!

I had bought a new sewing machine and it came with an embroidery module.
I found some great scripture embroidery patterns and decided to make denim quilts for
the Monkey Boys (there were only two back then.) The denim was so heavy!
These were the first quilts on my blog:



It's hard to believe these two guys were ever this small!


It's been ten years of blogging about quilts...wow!
Who would have thought I'd still be here and loving it. 
I'm happy to have so many blog friends who've taught me so much
about quilting, sewing, and creating. Thank you!

In honor of this eventful and huge day, I'm offering a $20 gift certificate
from my blog friend's shop, Quilt Taffy. It's such a cute store!
Just leave a short and sweet comment to be entered.
Giveaway ends March 26 at midnight, MST.


Thanks to all of you for making this an amazing 10 year journey!

There's still room in the Christmas In July blog hop if you want to play along.
Just send me an email!

Ah, I started my quilting journey making Levi quilts with denim and corduroy. Boy, were they heavy quilts, lol! Fun to see another quilter got the same start. (You should post a pic of your boys today!)

Happy Blogiversary to you. I'm a few months behind you. Started mine Jan 09. Fun to think about where you've been for the past 10 years and seeing those monkey boys grow up! Loved reading along with your adventurers!

Happy Blogversity!
I started quilting to "use up all that fabric I've collected". Now I'm addicted! It never seems to go down...probably would help if I wasn't constantly buying more!

Happy trails!

And what a great 10 years!! Happy Blogaversary and for many more. I've done denims but use a plushy on the back with no batt - it does lighten the load.

Happy blog anniversary Carol. I beat you by one day, because yesterday was my 10 year blog anniversary!!!! Great minds think alike as they say. Hope you continue blogging for many more years.

Happy Blogiversary! Ten years, you have me beat by four years. Blogging has been so much more than I ever expected . . . I have met talented ladies like you that made quilting look like something that was so much fun, that I had to try it, too. That's all it took. Once I gave it a try I was hooked and that is thanks to sweet blogging sisters like you. Also, thanks for the opportunity to be entered in your Give-A-Way, you're very generous.
Happy Quilting!
Connie :)

Ten years--where does the time go? That was before I had joined a quilt group or before I even knew about blogs, I think. I was quilting away on my own, thanks to my aunt who got me going. Quilting is SEW much better when you have a group of kindred spirits, both our local group and other bloggers, to share with, isn't it. I always enjoy your blog, Carol, and you are so faithful to post frequently. I don't know how you do it, but keep it up!
