Being brave is very hard sometimes. It takes courage to do something you are not used to doing.Trying something different brings out skills you didn't know you had. I was very very brave back on 14th October 2008. I pressed the start button on "Kainga Happenings" Since then I have met online some wonderful people and even had the chance to talk on the phone and meet some in person. I have been involved in swaps and received some lovely unexpected gifts. This is all part of being a blogger. To celebrate my first year of blogging I am giving away two half metre cuts of the material in the photo. I saw this in the local patchwork shop this morning and thought this would make a great prize for the giveaway. So all you have to do is leave a comment on any post on my blog in October. So some of you have already been entered. Each comment will give you an entry for the draw. On the 1st November I will announce the winner. I am willing to post anywhere. So good luck to you all.
