.. oct. 1 + 100..

Today marks the start of my most favorite month of the year. And, this also makes my 100th post! I just had to wait until today to make it. It's taken me almost a year to get to 100, but here it is! So, of course, I have to do a giveaway, right? :) Keep reading, the info for that will be at the end of the post :)

So since I blogged last, I had a family reunion, my niece's 11th birthday party, had to sub a couple of days, and got started on my fall rag quilt. Here is the fabric for it..



Those little crows are what started this whole thing.. They're just so cute :)

And here's me and my dad at the reunion..



See his shirt? Anyone still wondering why I'm named Harley? :D

Ooh, and check out what I'll be participating in..



It's going to be a fabulous blog-hopping Halloween party! You can join in the fun too, just visit A Fanciful Twist, and find out how. It's going to be Spooktacular!!! (Oh man, I'm SO glad it's Halloween season!!!) So make sure you visit me here, and visit Vanessa at A Fanciful Twist for all kinds of batty fun. Check out her blog anyway, she is wicked talented, and very inspiring!

**Still with me? :) I'll get to the good stuff then. 100 posts means I have to do a giveaway. And I won't make it hard on you :) Between now and October 7th, leaving a comment on one of my posts will get you an entry. That starts today, with this post, so here is opportunity #1. I don't know how many more posts I will make between now and Oct. 7th, but it will at least be a couple more.

Now, for extra opportunities.. Tell your friends I'm having a giveaway. When they come post, if they tell me you sent them, you'll get an extra entry. They will also get entered for leaving comments on my posts. So the more friends you tell about me, the more chances you'll get.

On Oct. 7th I'll randomly draw a name to receive some Halloween treats, and maybe a couple of tricks too!

Peace, love and koala fuzz y'all!

  1. I share your love for October and Fall, especially since my birthday's this month. The leaves are already rustling and the breeze is cool. It just makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside! Time for chili tonight. I love your quilt! You should do a tutorial for us goofballs who have no idea how to quilt!

  3. Well, I had wondered about your name. Looks like you and Dad were having a good time at the reunion. Sorry I didn't get a chance to visit with you while I was in that area. We were tied up with all kinds of family and friends doing and were not able to shop any both weekends I was there. Your blog always looks so good! Gloria (GLOANN)

  12. Congrats on 100 posts! I am loving fall more now that i am older. I used to love summer, but now it is just too hot. Interesting about your name; I just figured it was a nickname. I knew a guy who went by Harley once, but I don't think it was his real name. Have a happy fall!

    PS-Jingle sent me.

  17. Well - I have to leave a comment :) Congrats on 100!

    As far as name, probably not, but some friends have a son who goes by Harley - not from motorcycles or anything, but he read a book once about Harley the llama - loved it and wanted to be called harley - a joke at the time, but it kind of stuck :)
