Here it is
Post #100.
A lot has happened in the last year.
I have been having a lovely time.
Taking photos...
Writing stuff...playing with words...babbling away.
Showing you what I've made, what I intend to make...
Visiting some delicious blogs...
Learning about different crafts, design trends...
Ogling I-want-that fabrics... 
Making friends...
Giving you a little peek into our family...


As a thank you to all you lovely bloggers who come to have a peek over this little picket fence...
I'm going to have a giveaway.

I'm new at this so I don't think I'll make it too hard, otherwise I may have to think too much!
Just leave a comment and I'll use some random method to pick a winner.
You can follow if you like and put another comment in to say you do.
Don't forget to leave me a way to contact you.
Thanks to those who are already followers. I get a lovely little surprise when I see that number change, but mostly I think "she's such a clever quilter, crafter, knitter, sewer, chef, and she follows me...WOW" So thank you for making me think I belong in your ranks...that's the best GIFT of all!

Now about that giveaway you ask...
I've learnt the value of recycling and saving so there will be a little 'rescued' calico bag to hold all the goodies.
I've learnt the value of vintage/old/op shopping, so there will be a few vintage items from my stash, a childs dress pattern and a ladies dress pattern from the mid 1980's.
I've learnt to crochet, so there will be a little crochet flower brooch...handmade by me.
Most of all, I call myself a quilter, so there will be something 'quilt-y', but I haven't quite worked out what yet - so let's say call it a surprise-in-waiting!
Prize pack awaiting the quilt-y surprise

Just one more thing, I'll leave this open till Sunday, August 22 at midnight Australian Eastern Standard Time. 
Thats the 1 year anniversay of as well. Wow two celebrations in one, I might BURST with excitement.

thanks for taking a peek over the fence...

Edited: August 22 midnight AEST and this giveaway is now closed.
Thank you for your interest in entering...


  1. Congratulations dear Quilary and Happy 1st Anniversary! I have loved following you this way! RIEU-lly enjoyed the photos and stories as well as the ideas.
    Keep on doing what you're doing... blogging, quilting, sewing, knitting, crocheting, cooking, listening, mothering, and most of all being my friend!!!!

  2. Happy Blogoversary. I recently passed the magic 100 and a year since I started blogging. It's a lovely way to 'meet' likeminded people and to see some wonderful creations.

  3. Congratulations! I can't believe I'm nearly up to 20 posts so 100 can't be too far away ;).

  4. I've been subscribed to your blog for a while now but just became a follower instead. I love the vintage patterns!

  5. Thanks for the photography tips. I'll just keep practising and hopefully get better results. Glad you liked my rings.

  6. Congratulations Ms Quilary for a fabulous blog, and for the updates on life inside the fence. What an amazing lot you all are, all in a league of your own. Your work rocks. Love Marisew

  10. Your blog is really lovely! Congratulations for one whole year and 100 posts - two great milestones in one. A surprise package is even more exciting than knowing what I might 'win'. I love a bit of mystery!!! x
