Hello Rosie. Hello Carrie. The info you've posted about Gudruns' name is so interesting - I love the way you're interested in words! Love your blog too, and pleased for this opportunity to win something great. Yes, I tried the dance, but at my age it was a sorry apology!
All the best. Margaret


Congratulations to Gudrun. Love her designs and would love to win this book.


Happy anniversary to Gudrun!
She has got fantastic designs, and a project of hers will be high on my to-do list!

Deb Nydegger

Great info...Thanks! The more I learn about her, the more I love-- patterns fabric books. Happy 10th and many more to come. Thanks also for the giveaway!

Thanks for the great post, it was fun to read about Gudrun. I agree, she sounds like fun. Congratulations to her on 10 years!

What a Happy Idea this is, to celebrate an anniversary with everyone all over the world. I love Gudrun's designs, now to look for them so I can play as well. Iceland has always been on my must see list, this has made me even more eager to visit. Thank you for all the interesting facts about names as well. I would think name tags at reunions might be a challenge.

Hi Carrie! Thanks so much for a chance in this Anniversary giveaway. I love table toppers. I find they are perfect projects for a quick dose of instant gratification if you need a short break from larger, more involved projects! Hugs...

Thank you for an interesting look at Gundrun! I find the surname difference really intersting. Have a wonderful day! Happy 10 to Gudrun!


What a nice post and very interesting/informative. I think I would miss a lot if I moved to a different country, but we are lucky to have Gudrun bring her talent to the U.S. I'm glad she likes it here. Happy Anniversary.


Genuine people tend to gravitate to genuine people. Love you both as designers and humorists.


Happy Anniversary!!! Many more!!! Beautiful work!!!

I'm enjoying meeting Gudrun all over the internet! Happy Anniversary!


This has been such a fun hop. I love making tablerunners. Frankly, they are my "go to" quick gift. Quick to make and fun to find new colors to use with tried and true patterns. You should give it a try :-)

Gudrun was a guest speaker at my local quilt guild last year. She gave a wonderful presentation. Unfortunately I could not attend the workshop she gave the next day, I would have like to get to know her better. I have been following her blog since then. I follow yours, too, Carrie. Both of you are great sources of inspiration. Love your stuff.


Happy Anniversary! I'm so glad you have this blog hop. You should be so proud of you accomplishments. We sure benefit from what you've done. You are very special!

Myrna Wiebe

Lots of cool information about Gudrun, she is a neat lady. Her books, patterns and fabric - happy stuff! All the best to her.

What a wonderful friendship!

Loris Mills

What a sweet post about a wonderfully creative woman! Her designs are fresh and inspiring! I would miss her too!


Happy Anniversary to Gudrun! I knew there was something familiar about you when I first started following you...it's your Minnesota connection! Thanks for sharing, Carrie!

Becky Greene

What an interesting blog post - fascinating! And the Flintstones' anniversary song is my "go-to tune" every August 16th on my wedding anniversary - loved seeing that clip again. Thanks for the fun and for the chance to win!


A Flintstone Anniversary tune is just the thing to liven things up at a party. Well done.
Very interesting post. I love the history of words and names and I had never heard any of this before. Great to get a little background info on the designer too. Her book looks interesting, and I'll be watching for it in my travels.
Happy Anniversary to Gundrun!

Tami Chaulk

Congratulations to Gudrun! I just love her designs and would absolutely love to win her book!
