Thank you!

 Thank you all my wonderful friends who read my last post and left me a message! I appreciate you seeing I was having an attack of self doubt and reassuring me. I feel so much better knowing I'm really not talking to myself here! In appreciation I'm going to do a giveaway! I've closed the comments for the last post and took all the names from those who commented and have put them in the tea pot and I will add any names who comment on this post.

What is up for grabs? How about two Essence charm packs, and about 22" of yardage! Such yummy fall colours. I've made a few thing out of this line and loved them all.

So just leave a comment here to win. I'll draw on October 11, which is Canadian Thanksgiving because I'm so thankful for all my online friends!

How is it already almost Thanksgiving?!!! I love the Essence line - perfect for this time of year!

Annette said...

Oh, I can't believe that Thanksgiving is already around the corner! I love it though! Bring on the fireplaces and hot chocolates and nice warm blankets :)

My comments have decreased lately too. I know for me, I have added quite a few new sites to my following list lately, and I don't take the time to comment on every one every day. I do enjoy reading yours and looking at your darling pictures.

I love Sandy Gervais fabrics and this giveaway is wonderful! I could make a few great things with that fabric!

Thanks for the chance!

I visit your blog and like to see what you are up to. Thanks for sharing. I love fall, the colors and cooler temperatures. Essence is a great choice!

Barb said...

I had to go and read the post before this one. I am so sorry...I have been soooo busy lately that I have only been able to get around to a few blogs and I try to go to the blogs that comment on my post. You have a very nice blog and I do enjoy coming by but time...time..time....

Cheryl said...

I like reading the blogs & get to as many as I can. I don't always leave a comment, but I should start doing more so you won't quit blogging. I like to read & see the projects people are working on. It give me inspiration.

I'm a new blogger in fact I posted my 17th blog today. I am still struggling in blogland and as of Oct 1 I had only 13 followers which are mostly family and friends. Not sure how I found your blog but I have it listed on my sidebar "as blogs I love to follow". The day I found your blog and noticed you were from London Ontario. I lived in London for many years in the 1970's. I loved London and lived in the Ferndale Subdivision near White Oaks Mall. If you go to my blog and read my profile you will see I have moved a lot. Being a shy person and for many many years did not feel confident in just about everything I did....I struggled everywhere I moved. I love reading everyone's blogs but very seldom leave a comment. I guess I still feel a little insecure but I would say I am not shy anymore. I have followed your blog and many others and just didn't leave comments. I've started to leave a few and I will say I will be leaving more as it is nice to get the comments on my blog. Hop over to my blog ......I've got a giveaway on and would love for you to hop along on the Fall-into-Fall Giveaway. I think joining as a participate in this giant giveaway has been good for me. I'll be commenting more.

Laura said...

I haven't been able to keep up with comments at all lately, or my blog reading in general, or my own blog for that matter, but I have stopped by yours a couple of times so rest assured people are still visiting even if we aren't commenting!

Thanks for the giveaway opportunity and or all of the great projects you share!

A Girl said...

I know how it feels when you feel like no body is out there. I have enjoyed your blog and will try harder to leave those little reminders. :)

Kim said...

Hi Cara,

I am a follower and love reading your blog. I have a challenge blog that I have to keep up with commenting on the entries so it's hard for me to comment on all other blogs I visit but I still like to take a quick moment to visit blogs I follow.

The One and Only said...

wow!! you really rock!! yes, yes, yes, I love you and your blog!! even without giveaways!! You Rock!!

Crafty Mama said...

I'm still reading! I have been so busy with school starting and trying to get back into a routine, dealing with the first round of colds for the season in our family, and trying very hard to finish all the quilts that need to be finished a.s.a.p for all the new babies coming ☺ Add to that a stupid old computer that crashes more than it works and I just can't comment as often as I would like. But I'm still reading ☺☺

Pauline said...

I pop by regularly and enjoy reading your blog!

I'm not very good at writing inspiring, thoughtful responses off the top of my head, so usually I just read and go.

I know by the traffic that visits my blog that a lot of people do the same thing- read and leave- so don't feel disheartened!

Melissa Corry said...

Hi Cara, I always loved growing up with a Canadian mother and an American father. We got 2 Thanksgivings every year! I think it made us kids a little extra grateful :) Oh, and I love, love, the pink boots!! So cute!!

Lis said...

A giveaway is such a lovely idea, I'm so glad you're feeling loved again, hugs, Lis x

LJ said...

I'm mad mad mad for charm squares! I'm really nuts about the charm square bag tutorial someone put out last spring. I just made my 5th bag and they get better each time! I hope I win! :)

Heavy On Charm said...

As always you are an inspiration. I am so lucky to have found your blog :) Happy Thanksgiving!

Jennifer said...

Thanks for posting the giveaway! I have been reading your blog since one of your Moda Bake Shop posts and enjoy seeing your projects!

Wendy said...

Happy to see you happy! Beautiful fabrics, but then truly, just like people, can't you find something beautiful in just about any fabric ... lol ... can you say fabriholic? ... :) ... ~hugs~

Quilt Hollow said...

Cara you are so generous!! I would love this give away prize and so glad I have the extra chance from the last post! I visit everytime I see a new post from you but am guilty of not always having left a comment. I should know that comments mean so much as I love getting them myself! Enjoy your weekend!!

hetty said...

Don't worry! We're here for you. I love that Essence! Would love to win it. I can hardly believe that Thanksgiving is just around the corner. It was still summer a week or so ago. That's Canadian weather for ya.

Mimi said...

We all can get very busy with family, work, and needing time to ourselves. I have to say that your blog has been inspirational and you are very talented! Believe in yourself there are over 150 people who follow you and do!

Flo said...

I also read you blog almost every day! Sorry I haven't commented, I have had a bit of a crisis week myself. Havent been able to get much sewing done, so reading about someone else's is as close as I got! Thanks for sharing with us.
And I love that fabric too.

Moneik said...

Love the Essence fabric. It's one of my favorite lines.

Marj said...

I read your blog but don't always comment. I have also been getting very little response on my blog. But I blog because I like keeping track of my quilting and the chance to correspond with other Quilters all over the world.

Terry said...

Love that fabric! Thanks for the chance to win it! :0)

I love your fall pictures!! Fall is my favorite time of the year! Love the fabric! I do enjoy following your blog!

free indeed said...

Such a lovely time of year. I can't believe how fast the year has flown by. I'll be spending time with my oldest son and his family this THanksgiving...can hardly wait to see them all again...haven't seen them since May.

Staci said...

Such pretty fabric! I love that line!
Comments on my blog have been slower as well. I think people just get busy at this time of year. Seems like the kids go back to school and then it is New Years before you know what happened!

Pokey said...

It's always best to be thankful! I'm too committed right now, but I'm glad to have a job, and family, and friends, and a bit of time to blog and sew...
:-}pokey

Manuela said...

Thanksgiving? Soon? Thanks for the reminder - I am from Germany and tend to forget :)
I like your blog a lot! Your wraps are sucha great idea and look fabulous!

Karla said...

ooo, ooo, ooo, I love that fabric! Fall is my favorite season, always love to decorate & sew with fall goodies.
Thanks for the give-away chance!

Rebecca Woods said...

I loved Essence when it came out but never actually bought any. We dont have Thanksgiving over here in Australia either or Halloween. And it is spring now not Autumn which is so wrong. But being Canadian we decorate for Halloween and I have fall stuff around for October. I dont let my daughter trick or treat though which she would love to do but it is just not done over here :-( I will make sure I start commenting more often on your blog and I will stop being a lurker :-) I do love reading it.

Barb said...

There are so many wonderful, inspirational blogs that it seems I spend all my time reading and not nearly enough time commenting. I'm such a lurker :-/
I've thought about thinning the ranks of blogs I follow, but just don't seem to be able to choose who to keep or let go. Did you ever find the Rouenneries jelly roll?

Brenda said...

I love the essence line. I don't have a lot of time to comment on blogs but do read them as they come across my dashboard.

an encourager said...

How fun for you and all of us!!!! :)

LesQuilts said...

Hi Cara!

I read your postings too, just don't always comment, but yes, I am reading. Hang in there, we are here.
Check out my giveaway for the Fall into Fall Blog Shop Giveaway

Christy said...

Copy/pasted to a second comment because Blogger hates me & refuses to display my profile ever since I switched over to self-hosted Wordpress. :)

SheilaC said...

Cara, I am behind on all my blog reading, commenting and posting.

I think it is just the hectic-ness of the fall/school/holidays soon season :)

hugs!

quiltmom said...

Cara, I am still reading but not always commenting either- it gets more complicated when school goes back in to have time to blog and read.
I have been reading blogs this weekend but most were blogs participating in the fall blog hop- not much of an excuse for not dropping in other blog friends, but....
I know as a blogger it is hard to write and not get much response to what you are writing..
You write a lovely blog and are a talented young woman. Hope you get lots of responses in the days to come. I also hope that you found the jelly roll you were looking for.
Your giveaway prize is nice and very thoughtful.
Warmest regards,
Anna

Izzy said...

I've been a follower of your blog for a while now and love reading it, but had yet to comment. I hope my first comment gets me that gorgeous fabric! :-)

Barbara said...

Oh I love giveaways, although never won any :O) those colors are FABULOUS!!!!!

Janet said...

Isn't fall a beautiful time of year? I love fall colors. I always read your blog. I'm sorry I don't comment more often. I follow so many sometimes I'm on speed read and don't comment much. I love Megan's purple quilt. Just lovely--the pattern too.

Sherrill said...

HEY, at least you get comments..if I get one or 2 on any given post, that's a LOT!! I think the most I've ever had was maybe FIVE!! I know a few people pop in but very few ever comment. Oh well...thanks for the giveaway.

Sandie ~call me crazy said...
