Today my little blog has reached its first milestone, 1,000 visitors. To celebrate this I have decided to have a giveaway. On Saturday, 29th of March I will write down all the names who have commented on today's post, and my son will pick up one name. The winner will be given this set of two chenille potholders:

True to my principles the material is recycled, only the bias binding is new. Chenille, because it was fun to make. Potholders, because they are practical and necessary, and I'm a prosaic person.

You may have noticed the new badge on the right. I have found the perfect support group for me in Hanne's Quilt Corner . A fabric diet means to use more fabric than you buy. A perfect way to use the stash which threatens to cover my working area. Announcing the diet in public makes me at least consider every purchase even more closely. If I succeed, there will be many new quilts and children's books and toys, and the stash will not grow too much. I hope to emphasize the using, because it will result in finished projects. No fun in stopping to buy fabric and stopping to sew anything.


  1. Wow! 1000 visitors!!
    Well done you!x

  2. To be exact, it is 1000 visits and not visitors, because that is what the sitemeter counts.
    This comment is not in the draw, like my visits in the blog are not counted either ;)

  3. Hej där.....
    Så kloka ord du skrev på min blogg. Ja du jag tror att det finns vissa saker som verkligen "vill" bli till.
    Grattis till dina 1.000 besökare!
    Med positiv hälsning
