I know I said that I don't make resolutions to try to make wholesale changes on the New Year and that is true. I don't change personal habits effectively in the cold winter months. But I can make a couple of blog changes and one is a new feature that I'm going to run for as many weeks as I can. I'm calling it "Thankful Thursday".
I've had my blog for over 5 years and it has been the catalyst for many great things in these 5 years. First, I've me and made a lot of new friends that I would not have met otherwise. Without the blog and the discipline it imposed on me I don't think I would have ever started my fabric dyeing business and I would have never been as prolific with my quilting as I have been. I've learned more from interacting with other bloggers than readers than I could ever learn from classes.
To thank you for being a part of the blog world with my I am starting a weekly giveaway called "Thankful Thursday". I am going to have a giveaway of some sort every Thursday for at least 6 months. It might be fabric, it might be a bag of hand dyed scraps, it might be something I've made and it might even be a peice of fused glass once I get that hobby underway. It could be anything!
I am also going to have a link box on each post so that if you happen to be having a giveaway on your blog the same week (not necessarily on Thursday) you can add a link here to tell us about your own giveaway.
The giveaway this week is a 1-year membership to The Quilt Show.
I have been a member of The Quilt Show since the beginning. Each 1-year membership includes 2 series of 13 episodes featuring the best of the talent of the quilt world. Series 12 started this week with Sue Nichols teaching us about drafting and quilting feathers on the DSM.
The Quilt show also has a great community with an active message board.
If you are interested in entering the drawing for the 1-year membership just add a comment to this post.
The winner of each week's drawing will be announced the following week.
