Blogging can be fun.

I have read  blogs where things are given away.    Some very nice
things. It sounds like a simple thing to do for fun.  And I am curious about this whole process so,
  I am going to do ' a giveaway' in celebration of....
my 100th blog post.
it is a sunny day
it is the first of September
I am happy
I have  family I love
I have friends near and far
I have a home.
There is reason to celebrate.

What should I give away?  My heart is given but I will give you
something from the heart.
You need to leave a comment.  I do the usual and someone will get a surprise in the mail.
I will post the what  & who on Sept. 9th (an important date to me).
(it's a surprise so why would I tell you what it is?)

  Yes ! This could be fun.


  1. You are a very nice lady, to offer a give away for your 100th. I have been thinking about doing the same thing on my own blog. Not sure what to give away or when. Good luck.

  2. Oh it is fun to give away and see someone happy with the item.
    Enjoy the feeling.

  3. Congrats on your 100th blog. I had mine not long ago and did a give away. it was great fun. Vicki

  4. Congratulations, I wonder what you'll give away...I'm in the middle of a give away to celebrate my 900th post...It really is fun.

    umm .. I mean, other than you drawing a name, why is the 9th special to you? JA

  8. Hi Delia, blogging another way for quilters to teach, and share, I love it. Congrats on the 100th blog.

  9. Hi Gudrun,

    I didn't even know you had a blog. This year is a very special year for both my husband and I. We both turned 50!

  10. How wonderful. A celebration of birth, 100 blog posts, a sunny day, family and friends, and all in a giveaway. A great celebration. Have fun.

  11. Gudrun, congratulations on your 100 blog and your giveaway. I wasn't aware that you had a blog.It is very generous and a mystery as well.

  12. OOOO!! I luv surprises! how exciting! I haven't visited your blog before....I'm looking
    forward to cruising through...

  13. Celebrating your 100th posting and my first visit. How exciting. Have bookmarked you and will keep a constant check. So much great information. Thanks Gudrun, Isola

  14. My comment is that I am glad to have met you through Learningfa, and our great Challenge group.
    Making friends from all over the world is one of the best things about blogging.

  15. I was reading about your wool batting blog and I took a class from Scharon Schamber last year - that is all she uses in her award winning quilts. She maintains that she can quilt it as heavily as she wishes and the quilt remains supple?
    Love give aways, especially if they are Canadian!

  16. Hi!! We are on the Challenge group together but with some challenges I haven't been around or gotten to know anyone...I just wanted to tell you, I think you are so nice to give this opportunity..I think I'm back now and do so look forward to getting to know you better..Whatever Sept 9th is to you, happy day!! blessings, Skye

  17. Congrats on your 100th post. I love reading you on Learning FA. Keep up the blogging.

  18. Gudrun,
    Your work on the quilting is amazing. Good luck with your future blogging. This is also a great year for myself and dh, I turned 50 and he turned 60. Isn't life wonderful when shared with love ones and quilting buddies.

  19. Hi Gudrun, What a nice idea for you to reach out to others. I enjoy reading other people's blog but rarely know where to find them. I love the quilt that is posted on your site when it came up. I have been quilting for many years but am not computer savvy enough to do a blog. Congratulations on your 100th blog entry. Gladys

  20. Hi Gudrun,

    It does sound like blogging can be fun! :-) I like the idea of a surprise give away. How nice is that! :-) I love the photos of your quilts. They are beautiful. Interesting story and photos about the spider. It sounds like Charlotte had an important job to do in keeping the flies under control. :-)
    Congratulatins on your 100th blog. SherryLee

  21. Gudrun, you obviously have a big heart to encompass the members of the world of quilting. I did not realize the your blog was here but will bookmark it now.


  22. Congratulations on your 100th! Time sure flies! I love the tidbits of information you post. Although I am not a quilter, I sure appreciate quilts a lot more than I did before you sent me your link! Keep it up!

  23. Hi Gudrun!
    Congratulations on your 100th! I look forward to reading many more.

  24. I do love give aways. Congrats on the 100th post. it does take time. Thanks for the chance to win.

  25. Congrats on your 100th post! I follow your blog and always find it interesting to see what you are quilting.I love the name of your book Fast and Furious holiday quilting as I find it hard to have lots of concentrated quilting time. Thanks for the opportunity to participate in your give-a-way:)

  26. Greetings Laura T

    I wish I was an author of a book, but I am not. It's another Gudrun;
    Gudrun Erla that you speak of, and she too has a blog.


I would like to hear from you.
