Blogger-versary and giveaway!

It's my blog's 9th anniversary (Blogger-versary)
and to celebrate, connecting threads has sent me this beautiful FQ bundle called Arcadian Dusk

It's worth $79!! and consists of 32 Fat Quarters!


 and if you haven't seen it yet, I have a pattern (and kit) for sale on their site too!
The pattern is called Nighttime by the river
So for the giveaway, I'll be sending the winner the FQ bundle and emailing you the pdf of this pattern! (You'd just need to add border fabrics and binding if you want to make this like it shows)

Enter the rafflecopter giveaway and write a comment about how you read/ follow my blog.
Do you get emails? a blog reader like feedly? Facebook? or something else?
(US only since it's a big bundle and I'm paying postage for it)
 

I just want to say thank you to all of you too! If it wasn't for your sweet encouraging comments, I don't think I'd be doing this! I know comments have slowed down, but then it seems like instagram and Facebook has been getting more popular.

And with Open Live Writer and blogger and google pictures not playing nice, I don't think there's a solution in site soon, so I don't know what I should do, if I should move my blog over to my shopify store or not? I really don't like wordpress, but maybe that's just me....

Hi Bea. I follow you by email. Love hearing and seeing your news. Congratulations on your blogaversary and the beautiful quilt being published. Real eye candy for sure. The new wordpress is a bit difficult, but if you search around all of the features are still there; tiling multiple pictures, etc. I’m just getting used to it myself
