Celebrate! - Blog Giveaway

I'm celebrating two things today.  First it's been a year since I started blogging and second Pink Saturday is celebrating its 2 year birthday.

In honor of the occasion, I made this little quilt (9.5 wide x 11 long) entitled "Celebrate!" and I'm giving it away.
All you have to do to enter the drawing is leave a comment about a celebration in your life.  Only one entry per person, please.  (If you don't have a blog with an email address available, please add your email address with your comment.)

On Monday, May 31, 2010,  5PM (EST) I will add up all the comments, put the total into a random number generator and announce the winner.

GOOD LUCK!

You are gifted with the needle, to be able to create with fabric is a gift. I pop in often to see what you have created. I see your work comes from your heart and love for the fabric.

I am going to celebrate my latest report today from the x-ray. Bone has filled in on one side completely. Its been 2 years I have had a broken leg and 5 surgeries. This was the best report today to have one side filled in. I have been trying to grow 1/2 space of bone. Slow process for me so if I could do a happy dance I would but for now I will settle with a one legged shimmy...

Blessings to you and Happy Pink Saturday. I am 2 post new with Beverly. What an awesome bunch of ladies.

What a beautiful little quilt. I think it expresses my favorite celebration - the birth of my daughter. Like any Mother, could anything be a bigger celebration? Happy Pink Saturday to you.

Neroli Henderson said...

Absolutely love this, it really made me smile! She looks so carefree and happy!
I'm trying to think of a suitable quilt winning celebration but I really can't think of an event. So instead I think the thing I most value is my creativity and ability to create what I see in my head and having the time to do this. Especially as I had so many years where I wasn't able to sit long enough to do much. That's got to be worth celebrating! http://eiloren.blogspot.com/

Amie said...

I enjoy your work. This piece screams "celebrate"!
I am celebrating my friends. We live in a situation where one of us can be gone for months. Now, we are all back together again for a few weeks....something to celebrate indeed!

I enjoyed hearing you speak at PBWL, and seeing the exhibit at Physicians Regional. Now I'm enjoying your website and blog.
I'm celebrating life here in SW Florida; it's so beautiful, and wonderfully warm.
If BP manages to cap the well, I'll really celebrate. Let's hope that the oil gets disbursed before it does any more harm.

HELLO!!! AND A VERY HAPPY PINKY SATURDAY TO YOU, LOVE YOUR BEAUTIFUL GIVEAWAY, YOUR MINI QUILT IS BEAUTIFUL :) I JUST CELEBRATED MY CONFERMATION!!! A WEEK AGO AND IT WAS A VERY SPECIAL DAY FOR ME :) ITS NEVER TOO LATE TO GET CLOSER TO OUR LORD :)

Mary E. McBride said...

I am celebrating this weekend also. I'm from the Vietnam era and have just about run out of tears for those boys I sent overseas. I curated a show yesterday (of others' art) and it was mentioned by the best art critic in Central Florida...oh, wait, he's the only one left standing so let's celebrate Terry Hummel too! AND I'm planning a county wide fiber show next year and my old gallery asked to be in the show with 6 other galleries!

Susan Enos said...

Pat,
I am celebrating having met you and the other Divas. Your view of the world which you express through your art has affected my painting. I am way too serious so I think of your playful, whimsical and lyrical creations when I begin a painting. It does make a difference; I especially think of whistles and tootsie roll wrappers(?) made into a bustier, hankies as pinafores and the quilt made with ladies gloves. Thanks for the inspiration!

Sue Enos, Sueetlou1@aol.com

Dolly said...

WOW Pat I am blown away! That quilt is amazing!

Happy day,

Elaine said...

A wonderful little quilt...I celebrate the birth of two great-grandchildren and another due in August..How thankful I am to have them fill my life. I only wish my husband was alive to enjoy with me.

Yes I did do the cards...I play around on scrapblog quite a bit.

Roberta Chalfy Miller said...

Hi Pat,

What a wonderful celebratory woman! I love how expressive your work is, whether serious or joyous. I just discovered your blog, thanks to Mary McBride, and I'll be back to visit often.

I'm celebrating looking forward to becoming a grandma for the first time in August (although I'm a step-great-grandma and grandma several times over--not quite the same). No blog, and you have my email.

Happy Pink Saturday! Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving me a note. Interesting texture, lines and color going on in that piece! THanks, Jenn

Nan said...

Hello Pat and thanks for the visit to my blog Retired in Alaska. I quilt too but not on the same level with you. I'd say you are a real artist with a quilt.
A celebration in my life, hum let me see I have had a few by my age but I'd say the very biggest change was when we moved from CA. to Alaska. It's been a dream come true living here and not having to struggle to work as my husband is retired. Take Care. Nan

Nancy said...

What a delightful quilt.
My favorite celebration is my anniversary. For a variety of reasons, my husband and I married on the 4th of July. There were fireworks that night! And every year, the whole nation throws us a party.
Nancy

Pam said...

What a wonderful and fun quilt. I love it. I quickly glanced at your blog and plan to return to read more about your experiments with image transfers. Thanks for sharing.

Happy Pink Saturday.

Bill C. said...

What a fantastic quilt! I wonder if my wife would let me hang it up? :o)

Cheryl Lynch said...

I have been celebrating the addition of a daughter to my family! Not from birth, but from marriage. Being the mother of 2 boys, another "girl" in the family has brought me great joy. And we have made some baby quilts together. What could be better than that?

Thank you Pat for your beautiful work. I especially love the hand stitching.

This is my first visit to your blog and I thought I was looking at a self-portrait! She's a lovely celebratory lady! Today I'm celebrating that the school year is almost over and my son and I are going to be embarking on a new adventure which I'm very excited about. It will time for us to grown and learn together as a family. Hooray!

I think the best way to celebrate is to get together with good friends and celebrate as a group - the love and support can't be beat and it is multiplied in the company of others.

Mary Ellen said...

Pat Thank you for your sweet comments! Yes I took the pictures - you are gonna laugh when you hear what the camera is- Canon Power Shot A560 which is at least 4 or 5 years old and really just a basic camera. I take my pictures over to Picnik.com and doctor them up- it is an easy site to use and free too!!

What a neat giveaway but please leave my name out as I need to spread the winnings around a bit after winning several lately!!


Happy Pink Saturday!

Penny @ The Comforts of Home/Lavender Hill Studio said...

Hi!
I am so glad you stopped to visit me! You asked where we were in France. We spent a week in Paris, then we took a river cruise to Normandy, Arle, Leon Avignon and all over Provence. It was wonderful I did several posts on it in April, if you want to see some pretty pictures!

I see you live in Naples. I lived there for 20 years. I have 3 sisters still there. Now I live in Asheville, NC. I am also an artist. I do mosiacs. My art blog is www.lavenderhillstudio.blogspot.com

Your quilt is beautiful! Thank you so much for the opportunity to win it. I celebrate every single day. I celebrate all of the small things in life, like fresh grown herbs, flowers that bloom, the rain for the garden, my wonderful husband of 31 years.
Hugs,
Penny

Claudia said...

Your quilt is lovely. Celebration....hmmm. I had lunch with a blogging friend yesterday and I think I want to celebrate all the wonderful bloggers I have met in the last 2 1/2 years. I have been truly blessed.

Mary said...

I love your quilt! It's so quirky and full of life! Thank you for leaving a comment on my blog; I would have never found your wonderful blog otherwise.
Funny you should be asking about peoples' celebrations. Just last night, Friday, 5/28, I graduated from college with a degree in Theatre Arts! I've always wanted to get an education and pursue a love of the stage. I've done both now and sister, am I celebrating. It was a long time coming.
Thank you for asking about this topic, I'm glad I could share this momentous time with someone.
Cheers!
Mary

Jeanne said...

Hi Pat, I have a very special celebration to tell you about today. My grandson is graduating from High School On Tuesday. He is a very special boy and has had a hard year. His mother died at the end of his junior year and she and his dad were divorced, so without his mom, it has been tough. His dad lives far away and wanted him to move there but he didn't want to leave his friends. He stuck it out alone and made it through. It was very lonely for him and now he will move with his dad for the summer and start college in the fall. We are very proud of him.

Your quilt is beautiful. Please enter me in the drawing. Maybe I will be lucky. smile. Thank you for the opportunity to win.

Hugs, Jeanne

teri said...

My big celebration will be on June 6th when I see my baby graduate from high school. It's been a journey and a struggle. He's of above average intelligence but has ADHD and difficulties comprehending what he reads. Joey also has hypoglycemia and a form of juvenile arthritis called ankylosing spondylitis. The AS means he needs to stay physically active to keep joints from fusing but the hypoglycemia means he has to refuel frequently. But he does well with following his exercise and food regimens and he works hard to understand the written word so he can succeed in school. He is going to community college next year so he can figure out what he wants to do and to take advantage of the smaller classes. I couldn't be more pleased.

Pat Cardone said...

What a Wonderful Idea ! Thank you for thinking of me.
Have much to Celebrate. Fifteen years ago I had surgery and radiation. I called it my summer school and I graduated.
Have six healthy grandchildren.
Have old friends and some new ones.
Love the subject, form and colors of your quilt

Linda said...

Pat - not sure why my first post didn't come through but I'm typing with one hand (had surgery on my right hand). I'll submit this again - I celebrate the day I went to the Von Liebig to view the Founder's exhibit and discovered your magnificent quilts, went home, found you in the phonebook and call you. I still have the Hippie Doll you made and brought me when you came to lunch, and she hands from my office module right where we hung her and adjacent to your Child-In-Womb quilt I bought. So your gifted karma surrounds me daily. I love how your art has continued to evolve -in depth and breadth.

Hugs, hugs and more hugs to one incredibly talented artist!!

Thanks for stopping by my blog - it is good to meet and Angliophile! We have loved our visit here & I am happy that I managed to get in a Pink Sat. post while we have been here. Internet is quite spotty at times. Love your quilting. I did one small hand quilted piece once, thoroughly enjoyed it & quickly recognized how much time & talent it takes to complete a piece. Well done!

You are a talented stitcher. This is a delightful piece. I'd be thrilled to be entered.
A celebration - I'll be celebrating a good friend's graduation from medical school this coming week. I'm so proud of this 40 something lady who decided to follow her dream after working in the EMS field. If I should be the winner, I think this would be an appropriate piece to send on to her. :-)
I hope you and your family are enjoying the weekend. Thanks for stopping by HFTS to visit. I appreciate your thoughtful comment. Hope to see you again. ~ Sarah

Happy blog birthday. And happy Pink Saturday!

ParisMaddy said...

What an amazing gift! So many things to celebrate in my grindingly dull :) life. The first one that came to mind is the healthy birth of my preemie (6 mos. almost 3 pounds) son. He continues to make me smile even though he's grown.

Thanks!

One Creative Queen said...

Pat - This is beautiful! It's incredibly kind of you to give it away - it inspires me to try new things, while reminding me to celebrate!

Art is my daily celebration - honestly. As a single mom (of 3), my art is my lifeline. Without it, I would have lost the remainder of my sanity a looong time ago!

As for actual celebrations, we just celebrated my 2 sons birthdays. They are 11 days apart - and as a mother, I have a question...why do we celebrate the person born on that day, instead of the mother? If I recall correctly - and I'm sure I do! - I did all the work that day. They just showed up and made an appearance - which everyone "ooohed" and "ahhhhed" over. They didn't do 1/10th of the work I did! bahaha

I can't tell you how much I love "Celebrate!" - especially with her crown. You did a phenomenal job - and whomever wins is very, very lucky! xx

Happy PiNk!! Thanks for coming over to my PS party. :0)

Oh, and I love, love this mini quilt!!

Lets see...a celebration in my life..I would have to say the day that I met my Thomas [little knowing that I'd be his wife one day]...and the wonderful friendship that we shared for 6 years before we finally said, "You know..we really are soul mates..and we should be together forever!! And so the fairy tale goes...we were married 4 years ago and it's pure bliss with this guy. ♥

The End ♥

Hugs,

Hi!
I turned 40 last December and although I dreaded it BEFORE the event, now I realise that wonderful things have been happening since that birthday. I've hit the 'is that all there is to life?' spot, kicked back, made new friends, started my own blog and am now looking forward to the upcoming 40 years!
Thanks for giving a chance to win your beautiful quilt!

Anonymous said...

In this past 10 months I have celebrated the big things: Mike and Heather's marriage, Chris buying a new home.

I celebrate soccor goals, homeruns, when our granddaughter (3 ) made her first picture of Dora with eyes, ears, legs, arms, fingers. I celebrated when grandson Patrick spoke words that were difficult for him.

I celebrate the dear friends who have helped me thru a bad 10 months.



I think that when you celebrate, whether the people in your life or things that have happened, you are thanking God for His blessings. I have been blessed so I celebrate a lot.

A lovely little quilt for sure. I'm still celebrating my retirement this time last year - and more time with grandchildren, textiles, and art!

A fabulous quilt, and a very generous prize for a giveaway! She's so exuberant, and so perfectly fits the word 'celebration'.

Today, I'm celebrating being back online - my computer crashed (now 5 years old) and it's such a relief it's still working and I didn't lose all my artwork!

Wishing you a very belated Happy Pink Saturday - sorry to be this late, due to my computer crashing. I've only just got back online.

Happy Pink Saturday, Pat. We have been pinking together for a while now, and I want to thank you for everything you do to make Pink Saturday special. I am so glad you decided to participate.

Thank you for the birthday wishes, and congratulations on your blogging success.

I am sorry I missed getting here in time for the giveaway. It is awesome!
