Wow, can you believe that it was FIVE years ago today that this e-mail landed in my in-box?!* And the 4th of September marks the five year anniversary of Diane's inaugural post on this blog. In that time, we have collectively created 324 "official" challenge quilts (plus a multitude of bonus works and a special set for our generous angel Del Thomas); exhibited at 10 international quilt shows and galleries, with more outings coming up; co-authored a BOOK; and written more than 1250 blog posts. I could rattle off other stats but the biggest rewards cannot be measured - the joy of friendship; the goose bump thrill of real life meetings; the development of creative voices and the quiet but certain knowledge that together we have accomplished something rather wonderful. Thank you Diane for inviting me to play and thank you to all the other Twelves for making the experience so much fun. Happy anniversary to us!
*Actually, it went to a spam folder but fortunately Helen alerted me to its arrival for which I am very grateful.
