10th Anniversary Giveaway

On Thursday 10th August  it will be ten years since I started this blog!   I was just about to move house  and   go on my annual visit to the  Festival of Quilts  ( some things don't change , that's where I'll be on that date this year).
Appropriately enough that's also the day where I'll find out whether I've won Fine Art Quilt Masters,( unlikely given the  calibre of the other competitors  but being selected for the gallery is a fantastic honour in itself)
 I don't blog as much as I| used to, especially now I have a smartphone and it's so easy to upload photos and a few words to Facebook, but I still like to  use my blog to record my thoughts on courses I've been on and exhibitions visited , a 'reflective journal' .
I know a lot more people read this blog than  comment  so as is customary on these occasions I have a small giveaway to celebrate 10 years.
If you'd like to be in with a chance of winning a  postcard sized 'textile sketch', a study for my FoQ entry, please leave a comment and I'll put your name in the hat. I look forward to hearing from you!


UPDATE:Thanks for all your kind comments,I WON!!! Still can't believe it.

Well, it would be rude not to leave a comment. More importantly - Happy Anniversary, it's been great fun being able to share your journey!

I always look forward to your blogs and have followed you for several years. I guess I'd better look for you on Facebook too! Thanks for giving a glimpse into your creativity.

Bonjour,
Je poste jamais de commentaire car je n'écrit pas l'anglais mais je vous lis toujours avec plaisir grâce au traducteur de Google. En tout cas bravo pour vos travaux et belle visite du FOQ et j'attends un petit compte rendu car cette année je ne peux pas y aller.

I really appreciate the fact that you've kept posting to your blog. Facebook is so fleeting & is something I tend to scan quicky. Blogs however I settle in with, enjoying the more indepth commentary & insights. Would love to have your small piece to add to my collection.

I read your blog every Sunday. It's how I start my day. I love your shibori pieces. My mother was a war bride and I love seeing your photos of the area and countryside.

Congratulations, Mags! A really worthy and interesting winner, sadly I wasn't at Festival this year to see it in situ, glad there's another chance at Alexandra Palace.
