Once upon a time ago in the land of blogger (wordpress, typepad, etc.) there were blog rings... There were a few free tutorials and quilt patterns.
Then there were giveaways - for number of posts or for blogiversaries or for "I need to get rid of stuff." Des anyone know when the freebees started to happen? Why? Is there a list of common mile stones? Is the gift that you give for your first blogiversary listed somewhere - it has been a while since I have been to a Hallmark store - where they have lists for first anniversary gifts... What about the gift that you give once you hit post number "X?"
I am wondering because I am nearing 1,000 posts... & in November it will be my 3rd year blogiversary... I wonder because I see give aways for 100 posts & 1 year blogiversaries... I completely passed those opportunities up - because I grew up in blogger.2 - we must be in blogger.3 or .4 by now & maybe these rules cropped up in one of these upgrades... (FYI quite a few of those who grew up in blogger.1 are now published authors... I missed that opportunity too - but then again, I am not inventing anything new nor am I putting my spin on things... I don't care for the learning from mistakes school of thought... & My inner child likes patterns...)
If it is the third Sunday - it is sew-n-tell day! I knew that I was not dragging my sewing machine out today, so I had to decide what I would bring to work on...
1. Binding on the second of 6 Olympics quilts... (I may have over-stated how many of those I could do in 2 weeks time - with a full time job...)
2. Cutting for a postage stamp quilt. I have had a pile of scraps around for quite a while waiting patiently to become 1.5 inch squares... I have the mini mat & mini cutter - maybe today is the day that I start cutting for that project.
3. Pressing - I need to press the RR X-ing quilt units. I need to press the borders for a quilt for my baby.
4. Cooking/baking - I baked a cake last night - we have no frosting & I did not feel like making it from scratch... Gazpacho - I have been craving soup - hopfully that will satisfy me & hopefully I will find a nice artesan bread to go with it.
I hope that your weekend is productive. (& I hope that I will have some photos to share tomorrow!)
