Only 7 days to go!

Only 7 days left to go till May 31 when I draw out the 5 names for the giveaway on my blog.  Thankyou to all who have already entered to help me celebrate 1 yr in Bundalong.  For anyone else wishing to take part - all you need do is leave a comment here.  If you mention the give away on your blog then you'll get an extra entry.  I'll be pulling out the names on June 1 (Aust ).
And now........... moving on to "one flower Wednesday" - yes, finally I'm getting back to it, thankyou to all of you out there who give inspiration.  This flower will actually be the centre of a quilt I'm doing for our own bed (yes, it is actually for us!).  Pete really is not quite into the little flowers, so I'm still using the hexies, but using this centre flower & working my way out with various greens and purples - some you can see in the photo.  So it will gradually be growing - perhaps not quite one flower at a time, but expanding on the flower.............. but not to worry - I still have my smaller hexies turning into little flowers to one day make up into that flower garden quilt LOL
Now I'm off to get a bit of crochet done to form part of the giveaways.

Love your green flower. I like the idea of having the one flower in the center then growing it out. Can't wait to see what you do with it!

Thanks for the lovely giveaway to celebrate a year. I'm enjoying hexies too -- making double flowers for a GFG quilt. Your green hexie is pretty. Best wishes on another great blogging year.
