My 200 th post !

I am writing my 200th post right now, and I'm inviting you over for a glass of white wine and strawberries. Doesn't it look yummy!!!!

I had no idea when I started blogging in august last year that it would develope like this. My first post where i presented myself both in norwegian and english. I inteded to write both in english and norwegian, but after a short while I realiced that was not executable. I choose to write only in english. The first two who commented on my blog was Bente and Hanne. Then I got to know a lot of foreign bloggers. From USA, Belgium, Australia, Japan, Netherland, Sweden, Finland, England aso. I did not know there was such a big world of quilt bloggers. And still I discover new blogs I haven't visited before. What a lovely place blogland is!!!! I am so thrilled that I've met you all.

My DD told me today that her friends thought I was a cool mom. And when I asked why they thought so she told me it was cause of my blogging. Also want to mention that when she arrived at the beach yesterday with her new bag even one of the boys thougt it was nice. And the girls wanted to know where she bought it. "My mom made it for me" she told them. "Oh...that's so cool" some of them said.

The sun is still shining hot hot hot. But today there is a little breeze in the air. So it is lovely to sit on the porch. I'm sewing on Leannes House BOM. Will show you in my next post. But my fingers is sticky and it is difficult to get nice stitches. I am also reading a good book. And have a big glass of cold water besides me. Which I sometimes just want to pour onto my head to chill off a bit.

A give away to celebrate my 200th blogiversary.

I will draw one of you who comment on this post. And I think I will make a little drawstring bag with a little stitchery on for the winner. My DD will pick a winner tomorrow evening and I'll post the winner on tuesday. I have already started the stitchery.
And please make sure that I'm able to answer back on your comments . Still too many bloggers come up with no reply.

Saying for today:
Do not say a little in many words
but a great deal in a few

Congratulations on your 200th post! Isn't it wonderful that your daughter appreciated her bag--and such a bonus that her friends think you are cool!

Cheers Abby. Congratulations for the good work and your generosity. You have been sharing your knowledge and good humour in these 200 posts. I have learned so much with your tips and technics. Thanks.

congratulations on your 200th post - the strawberries look luscious - here in the UK ours are very early and lots are rotting before they can be picked because the usual workforce for picking (students in their holidays) are still at college - what a waste! I love them fresh but also like them stewed with rhubarb - delicious!

dot said...

Happy 200th. I enjoy reading your blog and love it when you and Hanne get togeather. Enjoy the day and keep blogging.

Darlene said...

Well, you already know that I believe you are incredibly talented. I wish it were possible for me to visit you, so we could sew together and just enjoy!

I'm really glad that you decided to start blogging, my friend!

(I must finish packing - I'm leaving for a few days)
