It's my blogaversary (soon)

Well it's not today but it's coming up in a few days and, as with all occasions in my life - birthdays, anniversaries etc. I always think that, if you sit quietly and hope people remember then you might be disappointed whereas if you bang on about it for a few days beforehand, you tend to get a happier result.  Ironically I started my blog on 1 April so my blogaversary will always easy enough to remember.  More fool me.

So what are we going to do on the day?  Well a giveaway is of course in order but you have to tune back in on the day for details of that.  What I can say is that I am planning a regular first of the month linky party called "Fresh Sewing Day".  Every first of the month a new post will allow you to link to your favourite project of that month.  It could be some fabulous fabric you bought, it could be a finished quilt and it could be anything in between.  Sometimes we have projects that aren't being featured in Flickr bees and swaps and it's a chance to show those projects off to a few more people and get a few extra visitors to your blog.

It might also be a chance to win a feature post on my blog and it might also be a chance to win some fabric.  Who knows.  Fresh Sewing Day is going to be sponsored each month by Sew Fresh Fabrics.  Wanna grab their button?  Well here it is and let's just say that having their button on your blog could well confer an advantage in future giveaways on Fresh Sewing Day...!

What will I be showing you on the first of the month?  Well, I will be showing off my new favourite fabric bundle, brought to you each month by Sew Fresh Fabrics.  Which bundle am I going to choose this month?  Eep, it's not as easy as you'd think.  Here are a few of my favourites but which would you choose?  Will you get a chance to pick one of these for yourself on 1 April?  You'll have to tune back in to find out!

  11. As I usually remember about anniversaries just up to a day before and then completely forget about them on the day, I'd better wish you a very happy blogaversary now :)
    And I love these fabrics. The choice is hard but I think I'd go for the lime and aqua in the bottom right corner.

  12. Happy Blogaversary for April 1st! Nice bundles :-) I do like the campervan print with the funky solids.

  13. Top Row, last picture on the right--my fave--I hopped right over here after seeing your pic on flickr & that picture was the one that did it. I have been coveting that fruit print for waaaaaay to long--I think I just need to bite the bullet. =) Congrats on your upcoming blogiversary!! =)

  14. I like you. I can appreciate a person who knows that she likes a little attention and puts that out to the universe. That's a much better approach than craving it secretly and ending up disappointed. :-) Happy blogaversary!

  22. WAY back in '97, my son gave me an old puter he had - said he thot I might like to noodle around on it. HA!

    I first turned it on April 1, 97 - and yes, more fool I. *L* I can't think of a day I've not turned on some kind of puter since. Happy early Blogaversary to you.

  24. Are you sure it isn't an April fool's joke? just getting us all excited for fabric then telling us it is a joke... you know us fabric addicts

    ReplyDelete
  25. Great idea. something to look forward to the first of each month. However, looking at stacks of fabric always gets me in trouble with my paypal account. :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Erm.. Top right and bottom right. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Yay for blogaversaries! Come to think of it, I can't even remember when I started mine.

    I love all those prints. I bought the "everything but the kitchen sink" bundle for DQS10 but didn't end up using it. Darn. More fabric for me.

    I have to say if I had my choice I would go for the wild thyme. I just love all those colors and the print goes nicely with so many others.

  28. Happy Blog-a-versary,and I don't think you are an April Fool at all. I love all those fabrics. Such beautiful colors!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Congrast on the blogiversary! I just started my blog so it will really feel like a milestone when mine comes around.

    I would choose the top row middle one. Love those colors together.

    The fresh sewing day sounds fun and I grabbed the Sew Fresh Fabrics button. Have a great weekend!

  30. I'm the same way - I LOVE my birthday so I do a birthday countdown that starts about a month ahead of time (one month today is my birthday!), then shifts to weeks (two weeks left til my day!) then days etc. etc. My husband just rolls his eyes but it keeps me amused. One has to do what one can to stay entertained, no?

  31. Sounds exciting - button in my side bar :D

    ReplyDelete
  32. CONGRATS!
    I'D CHOOSE TOP-MIDDLE!

  41. Love your fabric bundles! Especially top and bottom right and if I had to choose from those, I'd pick the lemons, I think. Love your 'Fresh Sewing Day' idea too.

    ReplyDelete
  42. They are all pretty, but today I'm especially drawn to the "On the road with Kona" bundle. Those solid colors are so soothing.
