2 years blogiversary - Giveaway

May I invite you all over for a cup of coffee and some cake to celebrate my two years blogiversary. August 2nd 2006 my blog was created and I published my first post. I started to blog in both norwegian and english, but after a while I decided to do it just in english. I fumbled a bit in the beginning with my english, but with help from a translater from norwegian to english I improved my english very fast. Hanne was the one that pushed me into blogging. Thank you Hanne, it's been so fun.

I've published 366 posts.


I've had over 300 000 visitors (OMG)


I've some bloggers on my conscience, like Laila, Nancy, Gudrun and some more (can't remember right now, so if you're one of my consciense let me know LOL)


I've found a lot of new friends all over the world in blogland. The Quilters Blogland is a great place to be. There is so much inspiration, so many beautiful projects and so many nice words to read.


There have been so many fun happenings like the Blogging sleepover started by Fiona. And the Secret Santa Christmas Swap organized by Donna. She is starting another swap real soon and guess who joins that one too. And Linda who organized the pincushionswap and now are doing a bag/bucket swap (I'm in there too LOL)



I've met several bloggers in person. Like in january when Nadine came over from Belgium to visit me. And last october when I met Leanne Beasley and we had a great time in Trysil at her workshop. Same workshop where I met Stina and Marica. And of course all the norwegian bloggers that I meet now and then (see the list on my sidebar)



I am so proud to have been asked by Helen Stubbings to be one of the designers in her Stitchers Angels. I'm soon finished my project and I know my week to publish my pattern.



I could go on and on about happy things in blogland and my life, but I guess you all agree that quilting friends are the best friends. I'm so glad you're my friend.


To celebrate my 2 years blogiversary I want to have a giveaway. You all know I'm crazy about stitchery. To combine stitching together with patchwork is one of my favorite. I draw some lines myself (like the one you are getting in the Stitchers Angel project from me), and I love stitchery from other designers. I want to share my passion for this with you and want to give away a booklet from one of my favorite designers.

If you want to be in the draw for this book please leave a comment on this post and tell me what's your favorite tecnique in quilting.

And monday 4th august I will draw one lucky winner that receives the booklet. Since I'm celebrating my two years anniversary I'll also have a secret prize for a second person in the draw (that means I really don't know what it will be right now, but it will be something made by me)

If you post about this giveaway on your blog I'll give you an xtra chance in the drawing.


Saying for today:

A friend
is laughter and going places
and doing new things
and having the best time ever

Marcy said...

I have been enjoying your blog now for about 2 months...checking it daily. I find it interesting to see what other people are doing around the world and the different fabric choices that they make. It is all so unique. I love doing hand work, and that combination with the patchwork just makes the quilt so much more interesting. I enjoy your thought for the day as well.
Marcy/Canada

Paula said...

I've enjoyed reading your blog too! Happy Blogiversary!!!!

I suppose I would have to choose handquilting as my favorite technique. I love the way a quilt feels after it's been hand quilted and wrinkled from the wash! Reminds me of my Granny's quilts....such sweet memories for me.

I'd love to be entered in your drawing. Thanks so much!

Dolci Fusa said...

Happy Bloganniversary!

It is because of you that I have taken up hand embroidery again, I have become obsessed with Australian designers and have ordered several patterns. Your work is gorgeous; you have inspired me!
Diane

Calines said...

Heather said...

I’ve been reading your blog for over a year now, and I know I’m not the best commenter out there, but I love your blog! I am pretty new to quilting, and what you do just makes me want to be better :)

My favorite technique for quilting… well, my favorite part of quilting, is choosing the fabrics I am going to use, it’s like getting the right color of paint for your masterpiece! :)

Gabriele said...

Congratulations, I like your blog and has taken to my favorite.
I have to say thank you for your interesting postings. I enjoy sewing by hand as my favorite technique.

Gabriele

Laila L S said...

Hi, and congratulastions. I like your blog very much. I like machine pieceing, and lately I have tried stitchery. I found that I like that too. I would love it if you pick my name.

Linda said...

Happy anniversary May Britt, I'm so glad you decided to take that step and start blogging. I'm with you I just adore stitchery combined with quilting and of course applique. Have done a post about your giveaway.

Stina said...

Congratulations MAY BRITT!!!!

And Ofcourse I share with you what I like best...and for me it´s the stitcheries and patchwork...just putting it together ...choosing colours...that is what I like best...and look at patterns and dream myself away..*LOL*

Treasa said...

Libby said...

Congratulations on your blogging anniversary . . . two years sure goes by fast!

Stephanie said...

Happy Blogiversary! I'm a fairly new reader to your blog but I check in often. My most favorite quilting technique is machine piecing. I'll be posting about your giveaway on my blog tomorrow.

Teresa said...

Congratulations! Yours was the first blog I ever read and you were the very first to leave a comment on mine. I enjoy your blog and am so pleased that I have come to know you through blogging. I will of course leave a link on my blog to yours.

Inger said...

Gratulerer så mye med jubileet. Jeg blir alltid inspirert av det du gjør, skulle bare ønske at det var litt mer tid.

Jeg er etterhvert blitt veldig glad i stitchery kombinert med lappeteknikk. Jeg er også veldig glad i applikering, men da helst på maskin. Håper jeg blir en av de heldige i din giveaway. Fortsatt fint jubileum, og tusen takk for kaffe og kake.

Lycklig said...

Congratulations to you, I read every post from you here in germany. Your english seems to be absolutely perfect to me and I am so happy you make all in that language. You are such a creative person!
My favourite technique is doing all the quilting by hand. A patchwork top is so quick sewing together by machine so I enjoy the slow handquilting very much. Another favourite is to add the binding. I am always happy to finish an ufo :-)
Many greetings!
Gisela

Kari Anne said...

Gratulerer så mye med "blogiversary"! Du har en veldig inspirerende blogg :o)
Har linket innlegget på bloggen min. (det lærte jeg meg i går, juhu!!)
Har blitt bitt av stitchebasillen jeg også.
Sommerhilsen fra Kari Anne

Doodlebug Gail said...

Congratulations on your blogiversary ..... my favourite technique if piecing by machine, however, stitchery runs a close second because it's portable and it makes me slow down.

I've been reading your blog since the beginning .... I'm sure I found you through Hanne.

Enjoy!

Litamora's Patchwork and Quilting said...

Yeeha! Congratulations with the 2yrs aniversary!! I hope you'll count me in too:-)
My favourite technique in quilting, is the freemotion quilting. Feathers, circles.... you know:-)
By the way: there's an award waiting for you in my blog:-)
Thanks for the inspiration!
Happy sewing!
Laila

TaraB said...

Dear May,

Happy blogiversary!!! I always love to read your posts, be inspired by your crafts...


Have a really nice day!

Hugs from Hungary, Europe

Gudveig HN said...

Gratulerer med 2-års dagen!
Du er utrolig flink med dine broderier og engler! - bloggen din er virkelig inspirerende! Selv liker jeg best å sy på maskin, men har jo prøvd å brodere, da.

Blanje Bleu said...

Congratulations ! What a nice idea this giveaway. Actually you deserve a present for this blogiversery !!
I will definatily keep reading your blog and -if you do not mind- put a link on my blog.
I haven't yet found my favorite technique because I have little experience so far. Recently I used the paperpiecing technique and I very much liked that. Maybe next is stitchery ??!!

Jeanne said...

Happy Blogaversary to you, May! I agree about all of the wonderful friends and swaps and ideas found in Blogland. You were the person who encouraged me to start my blog. You had posted some DJ siggie squares and I emailed you to say one was mine. My favorite part of quilting is hand applique, but since blogging, I am also loving the stitcheries. Red Brolly is my favorite and always brings a smile to my face when I see a project someone has made from her, especially the Polka Dot Girls. I hope you have many more years of blogging!

Fiona @ Dragonfly-Crafts said...

Congratulations May!!! Has it only been 2 years? And I think I've been following your blog since then or close to it.
I love this book and Bronwyn's work. I love the relaxation of stitcheries, much easier then cross-stitch which I used to be hooked on. So at the moment it is my favourite.

Sweet P said...

Happy blogiversary! Do I have to pick just one favorite technique? I haven't met a quilting technique I didn't like. OK, my favorite technique is stitcheries.

TexasQuilter said...

Congratulations on your anniversary! What a wonderful site to visit each day with all the happy thoughts and accomplishments. My favorite technique seems to be anything involving handwork. The last three quilts all have redwork, applique and hand quilting. There is something soothing about doing handwork each evening!

Keep the wonderful project coming! Thanks again

Pat

Muddling Through said...

Congratulations on your blogiversary!!!
And my favorite technique is just finishing one :). I am so new at quilting that I consider it a triumph just to get one done. I am in awe of all you talented ladies.
~Elaine~

Kristie said...

I just love visiting your blog, it is always so fun and interesting to read.

I think my favorite technique right now is paper piecing. I am doing both the Love Letters and the Civil War Diary quilt all doing paper piecing and I love it. Please add me to your drawing.
Kristie

Karol-Ann said...

Happy Blogaversry. I enjoy your sayings and reading what you get up to. I love regular piecing and hand applique as well as paper-piecing.
Keep on blogging!

Sue Cahill said...

Congrats on two years, that is such an accomplishment to be proud of. I can't even get myself started on my own blog.
I have so many favorite quiting techniques, I like to try everything, and love the whole process. I just finished a hand sewn cathedral window quilt, took almost 3 years! So I will pick hand piecing. I am almost done with hand piecing all the Civil War Diary blocks.

Happy, Happy Blogiversary to You!!! My favorite part of quilting is hand quilting and oddly enough, it's the part that I do the least LOL!

dot said...

Congrats on the blogiversary. I certainly have enjoyed your blog. I hope to read many more posts.

julia said...

Dear May Britt
- happy 2nd blogoversary!!! It's so great that Hanne convinced you to start blogging - it's always fun to read what's going on in far away Norway and while reading your entertaining posts it feels like you're just around the corner. Keep on blogging and creating such wonderful work!
About my faourite technique: since I'm just a beginner I think it's probably too early to tell, but I think hand applqué and stitching could be my favourite...I'd love to say it's piecing, but I'm way too often disappointed because of my poor results ;o).
Thanks for sharing your stories with us,
Julia

Leanne said...

Congratulations what a mile stone....I will be over soon if we are having some of that cake .....I agree blogland is a great place.

Marita BK said...

Grattis med to år, håper det blir mange år til. Er alltid innom bloggen ved oppdatering og blir alltid veldig inspirert. Nå syr jeg på julekalender fra Jordbærstedet, så stitchery er en av mine favoritter, samt blokksying. Ha en flott uke fortsatt.

Tingelingeling said...

GRATULERER!!!!!!!!!!
Jeg syns du er imponerende flink, effektiv og får gjort så masse fint!
Lykke til videre! Jeg er mest glad i håndsøm og applikasjon, men rekker ikke halvparten av alt jeg drømmer om..
Klem og fortsatt god sommer!

Águida said...

Oi May!!!! Meu nome é Águida e sou do Brasil.
Parabéns pelos 2 anos na blogland
Sou viciada no seu blog. Sempre que entro na net, não deixo de dar uma olhadinha nos seus trabalhos. Acho tudo lindo e maravilhoso. Sou iniciante na arte do patchwork, e também adoro stichery, que não é muito comum aqui no Brasil. Ainda bem que encontrei seu blog.

Sunny said...

Congratulations! I found you from another quilter's blog. I am taking my time and reading your past post. I am linking your giveaway on my little blog. I just started blogging. I have many favorite techniques in quilting but today my mood says paper-piecing!

ELIN - "The quilt maiden" said...

One more thing, you know I'm crazy about blocks and antique quilts, but I'm also very fond of stichery. I have now made a post on your giveaway.

Karen C said...

Happy 2nd Blog day year xoxo

Instead of my favourite quilty thing l'd like to discuss my least favourite, as my aim is to practice until it becomes my favourite. I am having trouble with needle turn applicate, having not done much and being turned off by any project that has it. I realised I was missing out on doing some great projects so i am determined to work it out so that it will one day be on my favourites list.

Happy Stitching, happy blogging.

Bec said...

Congratulations! Blogging truly opens another world doesn't it! I enjoyed reading about what blogging has brought to your life.
I also enjoy seeing your projects, oh so very nice!

My favourite technique has to be needle turn appliqué especially when combined with stitchery.

bjeannes said...

Congratulations on the 2 years! I enjoy your blog very much. My new favorite method is paper-piecing. However, I do a lot of hand work which I find very relaxing.

Jenn said...

I've been watching your creativity for several months now & just love the things you come up with! Here's to 2 more years! I too love stitchery combined with quilting & actually I haven't had much time to camp in front of my machine lately so I've been dabbling in embroidery. My fav is not really a technique but I love sewing the binding on. Or it could be that I love to actually finish things!

TLC said...

Congratulations! I enjoy your blog! I would have to say that my favorite quilting technique is paper piecing. I like the accuracy that it provides.

Congratulations on your blogiversary! I'd say my favorite part of quilting is a technique really...I love the handsewing part of adding the binding. It's so satifying...I guess because it means the quilt is done!! :)

My favourite part of quilting, is once I have found a design,is finding the right colours for the quilt. Also, I have a deep love of Stitchery. Warmest Regards Lyn http://bluebirdquilts-lyn.blogspot.com

Peddlecar Quilts said...

How wonderful! Two years,wow, I have a long way to go. I agree with you though, I have met the nicest people ever out there in blogland, and hope to meet more! My favorite technique has been learning how to McTavish with my longarm. It is so fun when it turns out well! I will put you in my next post! Diane

Sigrun said...

Gratulerer med 2 års jubileum. Alltid hyggelig og ikke minst inspirerende å lese bloggen din. Min favoritt teknikk er nok å sy på maskin, men et lite stitchery gjør også susen.

Anna Björg said...

Congradulations on two years blogs. My favorite tecnique in quilting is hand applique.

Det tok visst to år før jeg fant bloggen din, men nå har jeg tenkt å kose meg med den en morgenstund, og abonnere på feed-en.

katrien said...

Congrats for your 2 years blogging.

inge said...

Annette said...

Congratulatins on your blogging journey.  I love checking out your blog and enjoy your uplifting posts.   My favorite thing in quilting??? hmmm...I think learning new techniques is the best. Hope you continue on in sharing your fun messages to the blog world.

pelu said...

Dear May:
I love your blog, those angels patch/stichery works are wonderful.Congratulations for your second blog anniversary.To decide what technique I prefer best is very difficult, that´s why I love so much samplers, so I can use all I want to. Anyway I´m working now in a mix of patchwork and stichery, this is new to me and I love it. I guess you know "Fairyland" by Natalie Bird; it´s a very desirable book.
Kisses from Spain. Pelu.

Pepi said...

Really first time I Visit your blog. It is marvellous. How many pretty things. Hope to be the winner!!!. I also like stitchery but have not done to many. I will visit you often. Regards from Spain.

Pepi said...

Sorry forgot to say that I like nearly all techniques of patchwork but not quilting.

Andrea said...

Gosh - look how many comments you've got already. Happy blogiversary May Britt. You were one blogger who inspired me to have a go at stitchery and I love it.

Elizabethd said...

I've only just discovered you! I'm a quilter in France and always interested to 'meet' other stitchers.
I'd love to be entered for your giveaway, please.

Narelle said...

Happy Blogiversary! At present I like machine piecing but I'm keen to learn some hand piecing.
I've added a link in my blog. Hope I'm lucky.

Yvonne aka sommeke said...

Congratulations on 2 yrs blogging!
I'm in love with the buttonhole stitch, so appliqué is it for me!

quiltygal said...

Hi MayBritt congratulations on your two yrs anniversary I think yours was one of the first blogs I read regularly before I had my own computer, I love all types of quilting but I think that applique is my fav closely followed by stitcheries ( I've nearly finished the redwork that you sent me)..sorry I was absent from my own sleepover Im so embarrassed I invite everyone over then I'm not even there!!!I had computer trouble which resulted in no internet till tonight so I am going to be in my pjs again this sat night.....fingers very firmly crossed...

Kerry said...

I'm not sure what my favourite quilting technique is, I enjoyed making a log cabin quilt recently and loved a kaleidoscope experience too. I'm presently thoroughly enjoying including stitchery in my projects.
Happy Anniversary !!

Congrats on your second blogiversary! Blogging is wonderful and there are just so many lovely bloggers out there. I don't have a favourite quilting technique as I'm too new to quilting, currently plodding along with my first quilt and fighting my sewing machine along the way - and it's only a mini quilt too! Look forward to seeing your Stitchers Angel project.

Congratulations on your blogiversary! I visit you almost everyday... It means I like a lot to read what you have to tell us...
I've only tried a few techniques, but I like to combine quilt and stitchery.

Susan said...

Happy Blogaversary! I am still a newbie to blogging compared to your two years and I am happy you are still at it. Here to many more blog posts (as I raise my coffee cup).

Odette said...

I've been visiting your blog since quite sometime, although I'm not one who leaves comments frequently ('cause my english is quite bad), so I asked my son to help me out to write this comment specially for you.

Congratulations on your two year blogiversary and I'm really looking forward to see more stuff from you, 'cause to be honest, I'm a fan of your designs and work, so it's not a coincidence that you were chosen design a pattern for 'stitchers angels' (where I'm participating aswell!).

Well, to keep on the 'giveaway' spirit and in the best intentions to participate on it, my favourite technique is applique and redwork stitchery.

Regards from Chile,

*HUGS*

Lindi said...

Congratulations! I enjoyed reading your blog.
My favourite technique is free motion quilting, although I am still new at it. It's a lot of fun.
But the best thing about quilting, is watching it all come together, piece by piece - enjoying the colours and patterns of the fabric, cutting and deciding what to do next (my quilts tend to evolve - I never know how they will finish up) and then finally, sitting down with it on my lap and hand stitching the binding down.

I will post a link on my blog.

Chris@Cats On My Quilts said...

Congratulations May and you're right-quilting friends are the best. My favorite technique in quilting is actually applique. I find it very relaxing to sit and run the needle through the fabric. I have never tried the stitchery and quilting like you love but since I love applique I would probably love that too. Count me in for the giveaway.

Cheryl said...

A very happy blogiversary to you!!! Boy that cakes looks yummmy....anywho (I am easily distracted by cakte), I love piecing the quilt tops. The harder the better even though I complain all the way, but when it's done it is very rewarding.

Diannia said...

Hi I just found you and I'm sure you'll be added to my favorites. I'm also going to comment about you in my blog...dianniashouse@blogspot.com. I'm new to quilting (just had my 1 yr anniversary in July) so I'm still learning new tecniques. I'm enjoying Redwork (and Bluework) for my hand projects and just started learning hand applique (1st project is looking kind of rustic which is ok since it's a kitchen wallhanging quilt and rustic looking).

Love to Applique said...

Hi May and Congrats! My favorite quilting method is needleturn applique.Love your blog and I am new to blogland, just started and love it.

Cheryl said...

Congratulation on your blogversary! I also love patchwork with embroidery, but my favorite technique is crazy quilting. It's the best way for the "glitzy girl" tucked deep inside of me to surface for a few hours!

Congrats on your anniversary - I read every post you make.

My favorite thing in quilting is embroidery and hand quilting - though I do like all of it. I like to incorporate different styles in one quilt.

I'd love to be in your drawing - so many have already entered - I was surprised.

I'm off to post about your give-away and anniversary on my blog. Thanks for the fun.

May Britt, I've truly enjoyed reading your blog. Happy blogiversary to you!! Thank you for sharing your quilting, stitching and life in Norway with all of us.

Mostly I enjoy piecing by machine especially SBS blocks.
Happy stitching wishes from Canada!

Gratulerer med 2 års blogging! Jeg er på begynnerstadiet med å kombinere stitchery med lappeteknikk, det vil si jeg har prosjekter som skal påbegynnes så snart det blir mer tid for innehobby igjen. Jeg vil gjerne være med i trekningen av dette heftet!

Robin C said...

Congrats on 2 year of blogging. Your blog is one I always enjoy reading. You have such fun projects and I love seeing how your life in Norway is going and your home life. I'm in Virgina (US) so some things are similar and many different. But the best thing is that you are a quilter. Such a friendly bunch.

My favorite quilting technique is probably blanket stitching applique with machine-easy but love stitcheries and the book you are giving away has been calling my name. I'd be way too excited if you picked my name.
I'll post on my blog about your giveaway too.

Vipsen said...

Congratulations!!
Way to go!!
I love stitchery combined
with simple quilting.

Hugs Vibeke
