Happy Blog Anniversary to Us and 7 days/ways to win


THIS IS FREDA

December 7, 2007 was our first post to Freda's Hive (I can't believe it has one been 1 year). If you want to know why my daughters and I (Nanette) named our blog "Freda's Hive" - go here to our first post. Lots of you think my name is Freda. But Freda is my mother and our blog is dedicated to her memory.

Those of you that are regular readers or friends know that I do tend to "over do" things. So I have decided since it is December 7 that I will have a big extravaganza anniversary party all week long and offer 7 different prizes - why not.

Here are the details- if you leave a comment today and leave a comment everyday for the following 6 days (total 7) - I will put your name into the drawing 10 times. If you leave one comment on one post this week - then you get your name added once for the drawing. Or if you visit and comment twice - then you get your name in twice, and so on. If you post about my blog anniversary week party/giveaway on your blog then I will enter your name one extra time (but please email me so I know you've mentioned the giveaway on your blog). Get it? And 7 of you will be winners because like I said I have 7 prizes.

(Warning - you can't comment the day after a post and have it count! I will be checking the times/dates)

The first name I pick will get their choice of the 7 prizes and on down. So the 7th name I draw will get the last available prize. I hope this isn't too confusing/complicated. Well, that's the way I do things I guess.

Everyday this week I will post one of the 7 prizes. I think it will be fun. It is a busy time of year to be checking blogs everyday - sure. But if you win, you might possibly get a prize that you can regift! HA!

Today's prize is a quilt kit to make the baby quilt that I designed and made for Fons and Porter's Baby Quilts 2008 magazine . The magazine is just out this month - I finally got my copy! My quilt is on page 80 and of course I think it is the cutest quilt in the magazine. I submitted 5 baby quilts to their 2007 contest and they sent all of them back to me except 1 (no I didn't win the contest). And this baby quilt was kept to put in the special issue of Fons and Porter magazine. There is a long story behind it but I won't bore you with it. But it has been a long ride. I love how it is photographed in the magazine and there are some things I did differently than how they describe making it but it isn't a big deal and I'm sure their instructions are better than mine.

The fabric in the kit for the winner may not be a 100% match to the fabric in my quilt. But it will be very close. Two of the fabrics used are discontinued Japanese prints. (If any of you know where I can get more - do tell.) And if you want the quilt kit for a boy - with blue cascading blocks, then let me know and your kit will be more blue. I'm hoping I will have enough fabric to make 1-2 extra quilt kits for my Etsy shop, but it depends on if I have enough fabric.

Good Luck! I hope we all have a happy week and I hope you'll join me here each day to see the day's prize on display.

Congratulations on your first anniversary! I'm definitely going to mention you on my blog - you have a great blog and share so many interesting things! I'm just love your cottage block tutorial and although I didn't participate in the swap I decided to make my own. Thanks!
Merry Christmas!!

calicodaisy said...

You girls have such a great blog to be only one year old! I was at B&N today looking at the fons and porter magazine and wondering which issue you said to look out for - as I forgot to click on the button earlier in the week and see the cover shot. Congrats on that! I'll get it next week to support you.

LizA. said...

Congrats on your first year. Here's to an equally successful 2009!

Kim said...

Well Happy Anniversary to you and the girls. I admit I used to think that Freda was your name - I was so confused at first when we started reading each others blogs :) See I admit for all to see. I'm glad you got your copy of the magazine, I was at Joann's again today with DD getting backing and batting for the bk/w/r quilt for her bf and they only had a few left. I had them put one aside "just in case"
Love the background quilt today also :)

Kim said...

Oh yeah I'll post on my blog about your giveaway :)

shelley said...

Happy Anniversary! I just came across your blog this year and I love to follow along! Great Projects and Great Patterns. I plan to order your "All Dressed Up" pattern after the holidays, unless I win it first!LOL (I do not have a blog though.)
Congratulations!

And, I'll post about your blog on mine too (tonight maybe, but tomorrow for sure if I can't get to it).

Cheers!

Happy Anniversary my dear friend! I feel like I've known you forever.. can't believe it's actually been LESS than a year because I didn't get here until February.
I'm glad YOU'RE keeping track of all the prizes and times.. all I'm going to do is worry about signing every day.. because sometimes I do miss it until the next day. I picked up the F&P issue today at B&N.. I was SO thrilled to see your Quilt in there.. and picked it out RIGHT away. I would know your special fabrics anywhere. So proud of you!!!

CJ said...

Well Happy Blogiversary!! I did think your name was Freda for a long time, then I saw some reference to it being different and went and found the post with the explanation. I think it is sweet that you honor your mom/grandma with the blog. :D
Oh someday I hope you tell the story of the Fons and Porter contest and magazine. Most of us will never have that experience so it is fun to live vicariously.
I like GIVE AWAYS!! A big SEVEN though...WOWEEE!!
CUTE quilt. I am going to be looking for that magazine. I can tell everyone that I 'know' the lady that made that quil! :D
