Today marks my 600th post!

Saturday, May 5, 2012

A few days ago I realized that I was coming up on my 600th post. When I started this blog almost 3 years ago I couldn't imagine it would become what it has.


Some big moments over the last 600 posts.

Making my first dress.




Having my first tutorial on the Moda Bake Shop







Announcing that I'd be moving across the country.


Telling you about my book, Skip the borders.


Too many to list them all!!

working on a birthday quilt for my sisters MIL. Thimbleberries. no wonder I waited until the last minute, huh? congratualtions and thanks for sharing it with us

VickiT said...

HUGE congratulations to you Julie. I hope you continue as you have and continue moving up. I'm sure you have great things ahead with your patterns and everything else.

Right now I am in between any projects. Medically I'm nursing elbow and wrist problems on the opposite arm. I'm sporting two different 'braces' to help support those things. It hurts to just pick up my coffee cup so messing with fabrics for a few days is not possible. I'm hoping by later this next week I'll be fine after giving those things a little break from being used. For now I'm working on cleaning my tables off so they are all set to go in a few days. (I opted to not get cortisone shots because they hurt so badly. Plus the ortho doc told me yesterday the one in that wrist area is THE WORST possible shot of all areas to get the cortisone shots and jokingly said my husband has to come with to hold me down. ACK! WHAT? NO! thank you but I think I'll adopt that wait and see approach for a little longer. LOL

BUT, right after that I'll be doing more baby things for my Granddaughter and also for her Momma. I think Momma needs a purse or possibly a diaper bag so that's my plan. BUT, I might have to ammend that if I change my mind as I often do.

Ok I'll shut up now since I'm writing way too much as usual. Congratulations again Julie. Just remember all your fans here when you have your own tv show K? :)

Rebecca said...

I am makeing up a bargello quilt as I go...lots of fun

Just moved our college girl into her first apartment and she now needs a new quilt for her bed. The one I made her was only a twin size and now she needs a double so rest assured, I would let her chose from your patterns. Oye - she'll probably tell me to make all of them because she won't be able to choose! LOL. I love the cover quilt on your book - I may have to make that one for ME!

Congrats on #600! As someone who hates to write, I can't wrap my head around it :) Anyways, I'm working on baby quilts. My friends have turned into rabbits and are multiplying like crazy. I have 4 baby showers in June that I'm trying to crank out quilts for. Not sure how many I'll have done and how many I'll be issuing IOUs. Ha.

Right now I am working on making a border for a queen sized quilt and handsewing hexies together for a gmfg quilt (my 7 year project). Thanks for the giveaway to celebrate so many milestones you've achieved in such a short timeframe!

Congrats on 600 posts! I've got several projects going right now. A couple quilts (one of them a neptune hexagon quilt based on the one you made - LOVE it!) and a few zippered pouches for gifts.

I'm working on a sewing machine cover for the Modern She Made swap...just have to bind it. Then I'd like to make another little thing or two to send along with it to my secret partner.

Congrats on reaching 600 and all your big milestones! Keep it going!

600 posts is kind of unbelievable. That would be one post a day for almost two years straight!

I'm currently working on baby quilts. And if you can believe it, I cut an entire yard of fabric into the WRONG SHAPE (with the lazy angle ruler) before realizing what I was doing.

Needless to say, there's a lot going on.

Amy in VA said...

Congrats on 600! I'm working on a charm square twirly skirt and a small lap quilt for my daughter's best friend who moved. My little one keeps asking when she's coming back. Her first heart break.

alogins said...

Congrats on your journey so far! :)

I am currently working on my first baby! LOL! That has taken up most of my energy and free time, so my crafting has been put on hold. That isn't to say that I don't have many WIPS (Fruitcake under the tree skirt, a disappearing 9-patch for my nephew, 3 years of blocks of the month to do something with) not to mention the projects I want to make for the baby! Someday, I will get back into the groove, I know!

Thanks for the chance to win!
