Good morning everyone! Can you even believe this is the 1st of November? I am always so surprised when this day comes .. it really means we are into the ‘home stretch’ for the year … that always passes by so quickly! I know that 2009 is a year when many folks struggled, and have really had to make a lot of changes in their lives – some on purpose to help them get through these tougher times, and some that were forced upon them. In any event, we have all been hearing about the good deeds that others have done – and so we wanted to know what our quilting readers are up to.
We are so pleased at how generous our quilting community is! Have you read all of the kind acts and fun things your fellow quilters are doing for others? Many have inspired me to do even more.
We have received some questions about the 30 Days, 30 Gifts, 30 Winner Event – so let me quickly answer them here.
1. Any act counts – no matter how small. This is not a contest to see who gives more, but rather a way to get all of us to do a bit more for those around us.
2. You can (and we hope are) doing an act every day – and then just blog it to us.
3. We keep your name all month – and you can win 1 daily prize. At the end of the month all names are eligible for the Grand Prize. So even if you win a daily prize, keep on doing your acts of kindness as you will have more chances to win the Grand Prize.
4. And finally, if you are a winner, we will post it here on the blog … which we are about ready to do now!
The Day 1 Winner is ….
10/31 #36 .. Sheila! Congratulations & Thank you!
Sheila will receive the Hot-off-the-Press 2010 Better Homes and Gardens American Patchwork Calendar because she did something kind for somebody.
Be sure to let us know what you do today … and you could be a winner!
