This is it! A year of posts!

(Contest is over - see next blog post for the winner)

This is post #365... I've posted a year's worth! (It's taken me 4 years to get here.) Actually, I've been blogging since July 30, 2010. Seems I missed my Blogoversary.  This time I want to show you a finish, a new granddog, and make an announcement, all in this  groundbreaking  monumental special post. Let's get started, shall we?

Here's the finish

Can you tell I'm quite proud of it? It's only a dolly quilt, made for the Mrs. Claus charity run by Debbie at Stitchin' Therapy. (I still need your address, Debbie.) It took me forever, mostly because I kept putting it off. I really didn't have a plan when I started. Finally I sewed the hexie flimsy to a white on white print and quilted around the flowers. The binding is the same as the back. Technically, it isn't the best job. I do love the colors, especially for a dolly quilt, and I'm just glad to have a finish after such a long dry period. You know what I mean.
Now for the newest Granddog:
Bella (I think) is 16 weeks old, a golden lab. Such a pretty granddog. I hope this picture shows up. I just copied it off of my DIL's Facebook page.
And now the announcement... Dot Dodda Dah!
I've been asked to do the Around the World Blog Tour! Monday September 15. I know some of you have done it already... any suggestions? 
And if you got this far down, you deserve a chance at some fabric. Just leave me a comment, and I'll draw a name on Saturday at noon (California time). Lol

Happy Thursday! Have a wonderful weekend.
