I guess after a 1,00o you would.…….LOL…….. anyway, lets have a giveaway…….please make a comment on my 1,000th post and you will go in the draw for  ?????……!!!!!!!!……..???????, I will come up with a nice little something or other…..thanks  so much to everyone out there, who stops by for a visit….If you leave a comment I love reading them,  and if you just pop in for a bit of a read I like that as well, I need to thank that whacky lady who actually got me involved or should I say hooked on this thing called blogging I know you all know her, yep that’s her “Chookyblue”……..  (mwah to you Chooky have a wonderful weekend at Kerry’s)…..…..but today if you want to win……???????……!!!!!! …..you need to make a comment on this post………….(anonymous makes it very hard if you are a winner, so please, leave your name/email address as well) …..

    ReplyDelete
  52. 1000 posts!!! Oh Peg! LOL! And you always have something beautiful to show, how DO you do it! I love this little quilt, love the quilting you did on the borders - when I saw your title, I thought oh my, 1000 finishes, lol! Congrats on reaching such a respectable number!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Your mini quilt is so adorable! And the quilting on the borders couldn't possibly be any better, could it!! I am jealous as I have wanted to use my pounce and do a more detailed border but, alas, I chicken out each time and then I wish I had tried it--so on my next quilt I think I will have to dive in,cuz I know I will need lots of practice. I wish I could multi task as well as you. I'm behind in my projects and in blogging for sure and I only work part time and sew part time so not sure where all my time does go...well maybe a bit of time is spent with 3 cute as could be grandbabies!!
    Anyway--love your blog and all your posts!! and your embroidery!
    Karen

    ReplyDelete
  54. Your quilt is lovely- and I love the fact that you are playing with your pounce too!! Happy 1000 Posts! I wonder how many quilts/projects that equals???
    Take care and here's to the next 1000!!

  55. Hi Peg, Congratulations on your 1000th post. I'm one of those people who visit your blog regularly, because it is so inspiring and beautiful. I LOVE everything you do and I wonder how you get to do so much. You must be very organised and also a fast stitcher. You never fail to impress me with something new to show practically every day (I miss it when you don't post for a day or two). I don't normally leave a comment as I'm never sure what to say, but I want you to continue for at least another 1000 posts because I visit you every day.
