Oh I'm first and firsties never win! Love these pincushions and would love to win one ! I like reading about what people do with their time, be it shopping, quilting, stitching, gardening, crafting, knitting, More than that I love seeing pictures!

Connie W said...

I'm here to comment about your blog and hopefully win one of those pretty pincushions. I like your blog because you write about things that interest me, quilting and life in general. I'm a regular reader and have your blog in my bloglines list.

Must - have - a - pincushion! I like reading about UFOs that people have. How many, when and why they come out, and how they get finished. Thanks for the chance for a pincushion. It makes me wish I had a blog to get another chance at one of them.

Lissa Jane said...

what do I love about peoples blogs?? i love to see what they are working on, or NOT working on! I also love to see what bargains they have managed to find at garage sales and thrift stores, we never get deals like you guys seem to get.. I also love to see craft rooms, I dont have one, and I envy anyone who does!

I also love just reading blogs and finding out what people are up to.. Must be the 'sticky beak' (aka busy body) in me!

PS I love the pincushions, but I think I already told you that! LOL

Kathie said...

Oh I love this pincushion!
I enjoy reading blogs to see what others are working on, love seeing sewing/craft room pictures and just mainly to be inspired by colors other choose for their quilts as well as designs.
I love reading about the area of the country or world people live in and their local quilt shops and also seeing fabrics others purchase :)
I have been a reader/subscriber of your blog for a long time...your on my blog lines.

Hi Vicki, The pie looks fantastically yummy!! MMMMMM! Are they from apples that you picked? You were extremely busy making pincushions and I would be honored to own one! Thanks for the opportunity to enter in your drawing

Jackie said...

Oops, forgot to say what I like reading in blogs. I just really like to see what people are up to in quilting, it gives me such great inspiration.

annemarie said...

I love reading your blog to see all your wonderful projects. They provide such inspiration to me. Thanks.

Those pincushions are adorable!!! I love to read what people are working on. And that pie? It looks fabulous -- do we have a recipe???

mamabug said...

I love to read about all the crafts (especialy quilting) that everyone else is doing. I get great ideas, see new patterns and get a glimpse into the new fabrics and tools that are coming out soon. I love being in the know. I'm always amazed how we all squeeze in our time between millions of other things to make ourselves happy. Oh and I love getting a good recipe, like your apple crisp looks to-die-for!!! I would also love a chance at your darling pincushion. Kathie k.bugbee@att.net

Darlene said...

Keeping my fingers crossed but I seldom win! Sigh!

I like to read blogs because they provide so much inspiration. Because of blogs I've started doing things that were once out of my comfort zone and I'm having a ton of fun.

The pincushions are absolutely adorable!

CuteStuffInside said...

I really like to read (and see pictures) of what people are creating/sewing/quilting, etc. I really love it when I see original work too!

Mad about Craft said...

Please enter me into your draw.

I like reading blogs that include a mixture of information - both craft and family doings. It makes me feel I can get to know the person that is writing the blog.

The pincushion would make a lovely birthday pressie (23/10)

Dandelion Quilts said...

I love sewing and quilting tutorials. Like recently, I created a tissue cover from a blog tutorial and it was a snap. I also created an easy checkbook cover. Thanks for hosting a giveaway. Like I said before, those pincushions sure are cute.

Cecilia said...

Your pin cushions are great! I love reading about what other people are working on, their art, it seems that there are so many talented people out there!
Thank you!

What I like about blogs is seeing photos of what others make and then, of course, tutorials are GREAT!!! Please enter my name in the drawing. (ALSO...your blog is great as it led me to the big and fun fall giveaway which let me find SOOO many fun blogs to read!!!)

Carol said...

That pie looks yummy! I love the pincushions too, of course. I love reading blogs as it keeps me in touch with the quilting world since I don't have quilty friends since moving. Also lets me see what you are up to!!!

Keeling said...

Love the pincushion! I like to read blogs about real life!

Janice said...

I read so many blogs on a wide range of things. I love rading about what people are working on in the sewing/knitting/crafting department. I love the pincushions. There are so many different ones around blogland.

Karen C said...

Hi Vickie,

Yours is one of the many blogs that i enjoy to read, the photo's of your projects I really enjoy, in fact this is probably what makes me read a blog, if the photo's don't catch me I don't read on, so those without photo's don't get much of a looking from me. Now the photo of your pin cushions caught my eye today. Happy Blogging

Stacy said...

The pincushions look beautiful! I like to read about people's crafts, primarily knitting and sewing although I can appreciate lots of other things as well.

Good luck with the contest!

Jeanne said...

The pie looks delicous and the pincushions are so cute. I like to see what other people are working on or finishing. I enjoy pet and garden pictures, also.

Sinta said...

I love pincushions! These are so cute... is that a Fig Tree pattern? I like to read about quilting projects or purchases; cooking ideas and recipies; places... like where you live and places people go to. Oh, and the 24th is my mom's birthday! It's a good day for birthdays and drawings!

Myra said...

Anita said...

I love the colours in the pincushions!
I like to read in peoples blogs about what they are working on but also about what life is like where they live. It is such a small world in Blogland!

LesleyAnn said...

Hi Vickie-Great pincushions. I love that fabric with the pinks and browns. Was going to make my sister a bag out of it. I love reading blogs to get inspiration, see what people are working on, and to see what great bargains everyone is getting since I am usually not that lucky!!

mel*~reachforthestars~* said...

Well. It really depends i guess! I like to read about what interesting things happened that day, fashion & what new work they've come up with(if they're a seller). It's nice also seeing loads of pictures as it helps me visualize what happened too.. I hope i can win! Love the cool pincushion!

Our anniversary pie looks wonderful! Too bad we couldn't enjoy it...;-) Tell Alex he rox. (wait, don't, he probably already thinks so...don't need to further inflate any ego)

Oh, and I'm pretty sure u tried to take credit for the cookies he baked @ Christmas this year, too.

cosmo*yogini said...

Oh, & I'm pretty sure u tried to take credit for the cookies he made @ Christmas too...but I didn't see any mention of his name at all on that one! ;-)
