  2. I started my blog as a personal journal of my quilting and had only a few online quilty friends who I already knew follow me in the beginning. I have found I enjoy the opportunity to share with other quilters by blogging and have started joining blog hops this year and love all the creative inspiration. Have fun blogging! ... :) Pat

  3. I am a new follower. I was reading your sister's blog 'Quilts From My Crayon Box' and she said to come to your site and say hello. I have been trying to get one of my sisters to take up up quilting and have been talking to her through the phone also. Thanks for the chance to win.

  32. Following your blog.

    I had kind of blogged before I started my crafty based blog, so it wasn't a huge deal for me. Also, I just wanted a place to show off my stuff, so there was (and still is) no pressure to do anything other than what I want.

  65. I am a bran new follower via Bloglovin. Thank you for the chance to enter. I was very scared and nervous and so unsure of what I was even doing. I was definitely in unchartered waters. Then ionce I got it all figured out then my life changed so drastically my poor blog fell to the side.

  74. I'm a follower. I still don't know if I have more than a handful of readers... starting my craft blog was scary. For the most part I use it for documenting my sewing to refer back to, but I'm starting with some tutorials and sew alongs now too.

    Thanks for the chance - I have two giveaways going on too: www.craftyhour.com

  77. I don't blog but I spend way to much time reading them. It seems one blog leads me to another. It is always fun to find new blogs. I don't have facebook, so I don't know how to follow when google reader goes away.
