300 Post Blog Giveaway!!

My dear friend Kristie is having a giveaway to celebrate her 300th post. Please go visit her blog!

Kristie is one of my very first friends that I met from our original quilt blogs. She and I clicked right away and although we've yet to meet in person I feel as though we have. We've tracked many, many miles via packages sent back and forth. If only she lived a tad closer to me!

Having a quilt blog and making new quilting friends to me is the best part of blogging. It's like having your own private quilt guild without the face to face meeting. But, in lieu of the face to face meeting you have 24 hour support if your having a quilting or life crisis. Someone is always awake and is ready to throw up a solution or offer words of advice.

I know that someday, Kristie and I will meet in person and immediately we'll be able to walk right into the others house, kick off our shoes, get comfortable and sit down for a spell and talk as if this was our 100th in person visit just as I've gotten the chance to do with Michelle and Jill.

I have to echo Kristie. I don't suppose you'd find a more sincere, helpful bunch of people on the net.

As a newbie, I've always had a warm reception and everyone is so glad to offer advice and much needed criticism when needed.

Thanx again for all you do.

Wow 300 posts! Sounds like you have been friends for a while. I hope you get to meet her in person someday.

I can hardly believe it's been a year since I started regularly posting with you and Kristie. I feel like I've know you both for years! You are both awesome and someday I hope to meet you both.

I absolutely agree with you! It's great to have the online group to supplement all of my new in-person quilting buddies! Funny thing - I talk about you gals like we hang out all the time and my in-person friends now watch your blogs, too!
