Well, today's the day folks. It's one year ago today since I started on this blogging road. Want to see the incriminating evidence?
Yes, this is a pic of me the morning of the second day of my blogging life - impatient to get back at the wee blog page I'd created the night before, I didn't even get out of bed before I switched on the MAC!!! The pic was sneakily taken by my hubby at some unearthly hour of the morning before the rush out to work, pre-school routine and anything else of actual relevance to my day. In this instance I am glad that the picture quality is rubbish!
Anyway, something much lovelier to look at is this charm pack of squares from Bonnie and Camille's Ruby line -
And, if you were a follower of my blog at midnight last night this could be yours in my Blogiversary Giveaway!
I really wanted this giveaway to be for folks who are genuinely peeking in and commenting on the blog from time to time. Sew Me is only a little blog with a few followers which is more than I had ever hoped for, and it just feels wrong to me that a totally open giveaway could result in someone who hasn't been part of my first year in any way winning when others have been so kind and encouraging and actually participated in my little online community. So sorry to those of you who maybe do pop over here occasionally but aren't signed up followers, but if I don't know you're there I can't know to include you.
So, here's the deal - if you were a follower at midnight GMT last night you can enter my Blogiversary giveaway by leaving a comment to tell me what you are most looking forward to over the Christmas hols.
Comments will be closed on Boxing Day (26 Dec) at noon GMT and just for a little more occasion than using Mr Random Number Generator, I'll get my son to pull a comment from a Santa hat to decide the winner. I do hope this will give those of you who have been kind enough to support my first year's blogging activities a chance to post a wee comment amid the busyness of the season.
Thanks to you all!
PS - What I'm most looking forward to this Christmas is the Chinese meal we have with my parents, my brother and SIL and their 3 girls on Christmas Eve. It's our tradition to meet up every year and for me it's the signal to relax into Christmas. The shopping is finished, pressies are wrapped and mostly distributed and Christmas dinner preparations are made. So we don our gladrags and meet for dinner where the kids are all so excited to be together and beginning to really anticipate the arrival of Santa! Good food, family and magical memories!
