This small celebration quilt is the latest work on my design wall. Today my neighbours celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary – yes, SIXTY years of togetherness! – and I plan to present this quilt when we meet them for dinner this evening. L&M are an active couple – always busy out in their garden or pottering around the house and often to be heard playing table tennis (typically accompanied by gales of laughter).
I don’t have an extensive garden and I don’t play table tennis – but do I like to laugh, potter around, bounce things backwards and forward and stop to smell the flowers, including right here on this blog. And I just realised that yesterday was my four year blogging anniversary – I first tentatively stepped out into the blogosphere with this post and have enjoyed the ambience ever since. To mark this occasion, I’ve decided to expand the scope of my current giveaway so:
- all subscribers to my e-newsletter as at 4 October (date changed from 1 October)
- PLUS anyone who leaves a comment between now and 4 October
go into a draw for a small textile work that I hope to be able to show you tomorrow. You can sign up to the occasional newsletter on the subscription page and follow the prompts. You can also view Issue #2 online. Or you can leave a blog comment.
Thank you to all my readers and blogging friends. The world seems a smaller and more congenial place.
