A Day for a Win!

Never forget that life can only be nobly inspired and rightly lived if you take it bravely and gallantly, as a splendid adventure in which you are setting out into an unknown country, to meet many a joy, to find many a comrade, to win and lose many a battle. 

Annie Besant


I was looking for a quote with something about a 'win' and I found this one.  I had to use it because it seems to perfectly describe my adventures in blog-land.  This weekend I was trying to get all the details and instructions all in order for the Something Wicked post and I kept encountering obstacles along the way.  Everything eventually got done, even though when I was almost through with the instructions I hit the wrong button and lost everything and had to start over, the post went up and the pattern and instructions are available for download.

I have learned so much techie stuff in the last few weeks with these blog hops.  I'm sure I will use these tools for many things.  I only started blogging frequently around  Memorial Day and it has been an adventure already.  I am meeting new people and making new friends that I hope to get to know better and better as time goes on.  Maybe I'll even get to meet some of them face to face someday.

Now to announce the winner of my Giveaway for followers.  It is #7 Gwen.  Congratulations!

I had a delightful surprise in my email today too!  I WON!  Electric Quilt Company had a blog hop last week and I will be receiving both EQ7 and Judy Martin's Star Power software.  You can read about the EQ Fall Blog Hop and follow the links there and discover some really neat and unexpected things that can be done with EQ7.

Now I'm going to have to figure out what to do with another copy of EQ7.  Any ideas?

Are you keeping up with the Leafs Me Happy hop?  There are an astounding number of blocks being shown.  Can't wait for you to see what I came up with.   I and a few others are falling into the last but not least category.

  1. Love the batik leaves. Makes me miss Northern Fall. No such colors in Florida during the fall.
