The lovely Lis, who writes the Piece’n’Peace blog, was offering several give-aways recently to celebrate her 500th blog post. (We had to relate the story of our first ever quilt, so that reminds me that I should share that story here one day, I guess). Thanks Lis, for sending me the wonderful “Inspirational Strippy Quilts” magazine, there is certainly lots of good reading in here. Plus an extra gift of a pack of three hanks of Perle thread in bush colours, “Hand dyed in South Africa” the label says. Thanks so much Lis, and many congratulations on your 500th plus blog posts, may there be many more to come.
We met up with Lis and Alan in April 2010 when they were out here on their New Zealand holiday. They were staying at Paekakariki on the Kapiti Coast, and after exchanging a few e-mails, we arranged to drive up and meet them in a local cafe. You know what it’s like when quilters get together, even if they haven’t met before, it’s just chatter, chatter, chatter. The the two husbands weren’t doing too bad, either. We decided to share one of those delicious pizzas that the cafe specialises in as we got to know each other a bit better.
Mmm, I’ve just checked “my” blog numbers, and this will be number 328, so I’m a long way from Lis and her 500th. I’ll just have to keep writing! Do pop over and visit Lis’s blog. She is looking forward to an upcoming textile trip to Japan, so that will certainly make interesting reading.
