Fourth Blogiversary Celebration!

Today marks four years since I began this blog. I remember starting it and wondering if anyone would find it, read it, enjoy it.  It was akin to that feeling of having a party and thinking ‘what if no one shows up’.  But people did find it, you guys do read it and it is so much fun!

A bundle of four pretty florals!

I thought about the number four and looked at the significance of it in my life. Turns out it is a pretty cool number.

Florals in pink, orange, and blue. So pretty!

For me personally, I thought of the following:

  • I have four children.
  • I am the fourth daughter out of six.
  • My mother is the fourth daughter in as many children.  She was given the name Bernardine (the Italian feminine for Bernard, her father’s name).  I am the fourth daughter too and she gave me the name Bernardine.

In nature:

  • There are four seasons.
  • There are four cardinal directions or points on a compass.

Culturally:

  • Four mathematical rules; addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.
  • Wizard of Oz – the foursome including Dorothy, Tin Man, Scarecrow and the Cowardly Lion.
  • Commonly used 4:4 time in music.
  • Everyone knows the Fab Four!
  • There are four suits in a deck of cards.
  • How many Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles?  Yep, 4!
  • How many houses in Hogwarts??  You got it – 4!
  • The Four Corners in the United States is where four states join at a single point; Colorado, Arizona, New Mexico and Utah.
  • For those who look for meaning in their dreams four is significant.  Four is important in that it indicates stability and success.  A pattern of fours would say your work and efforts are likely to pay off with success. Whether I believe in dream analysis or not, I like this because I feel like my work to develop my blog and my shop has been really successful and, more importantly, so satisfying!
  • When celebrating wedding anniversaries, the traditional gift for the fourth anniversary is fruits or flowers.

Love this palette of green, tank, coral and pink.

OK, here is where it gets interesting.  This being the fourth anniversary of my blog, I want to give my readers a gift.  It seems rather impractical to send you fruit so I want to give flowers.  In keeping with the theme of four, I have created four fat quarter bundles, containing four pieces each.  The fabrics are all florals. So to mark this fourth blogiversary, I will select four winners, each of whom will win a bundle of four florals!

Soft and feminine florals in pinks, blues and lavender.

To enter to win, tell me what the number four means to you. Does it have any significance?  If not, that’s fine too.  How long does the giveaway remain open?  WellI, four days of course!  I will pull names on the 8th of June!  Thanks to everyone who reads my blog, sews along with me, shops at Needle & Foot, and extends their friendship and community to me.  It’s been a fun four years!!

    What a beautiful giveaway! I tend to like even numbers, especially ‘2’ and ‘4’. Possibly because I was born on the 14th day of the 2nd month? Thanks for the giveaway!

    Happy 4th anniversary of your blog. I love this post. So many 4’s, significant (how many children we both have) and insignificant (how many Ninja turtles) although our sons might disagree on the latter😜
    Really enjoyed this one.

    Happy 4th Anniversary! I equally enjoy your posts! The number 4 is big in our lives: 4 in our family (hubs & I, and 2 children). They are grown & have since had 1 child each (a ‘mini me’ of each of them!), making 4, hubby & I have 2 dogs (4 in THIS family), my family had 4 siblings (I was eldest) and my husbands family had 4 siblings (he was youngest), when I was an exchange student many years ago, I joined a family for a year, making 4 siblings (and they are STILL my family, every lovely one of them).

    Happy 4th Anniversary, Bernie! I’m certainly glad you began writing four years ago, and equally glad we have gotten to know one another. I have a family of four; 4 begins my address; I have four eyes (eyes and eyeglasses); I also have four ears (is there such at thing? Ears and hearing aids). Have we read 4 books in Fabric & Fiction, or only 3 (seems like 4). What a fun giveaway, and so creative!

    Happy fourth blogiversary! I never realized how many things come in fours before, that’s actually pretty cool. Most significant to me is probably four seasons. I love and need all four of them to be happy and in balance 🙂 It reminds us there is beauty in everything.

Also, I enjoy bible study – there are 4 horseman of the apocalypse, animals have 4 paws, and there are 4 wind directions – north, south, east and west. Have a great day on your blogiversary! Thank you.

    I love using the 4-patch block in my quilting projects, as well as blocks that have 4 repeats, like the bear’s paw….

    Congrats Bernie! I found your blog when you were sharing the Doll Like Me quilt challenge, and have followed ever since. Four: There are four gospels – Matthew, Mark, Luke, John. Our hands have four fingers (two thumbs) and a baseball diamond has four bases, well home plate is really the fourth base. And then there’s the Four Patch, one of my favorite things to sew and next would be the DOUBLE four patch, another fun block.

    Hi Bernie! What a wonderful post. I have never given the number four much thought, as I am a three girl. You have convinced me though to not cast it aside and avoid it like I do the number eight (never anything good if eight is involved for me). I am the fourth child . . . and that’s all I’ve got. HAHA! Congrats on the blog anniversary. I would say your fourth year was a very good one for you with the success of your Etsy shop. May the fifth year be even better. It know it will be so. Happy Monday! ~smile~ Roseanne

    The number 4 is significant to me because I’ve always wanted 4 children. However, after having 2 children and then getting divorced and becoming a single mother, I don’t know how I’d raise 4 by myself. LOL
    I do love even numbers though, so if I ever get married again, maybe he’ll already have 2 of his own. 😉

    Personally, the number four has great a meaning for me because there a four gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John, in the New Testament. Also, I am the fourth child up fo I am the fourth child of four ur in my family.

      Congratulations on your 4 year blog anniversary Bernie! Who knew four has so many use cases both in your life and in general! I was born on August 4th so that’s my first four of significance! It is my favorite number and I don’t know if that is related to it being my birthday or not. U.S. Presidents are elected in for four year terms. There are four years of higher education (high school, college) n general.

      Have a happy Monday. The bundles you put together are so sweet!

    Most quilts have four sides. All of my quilts do. The number four is comforting to me. It is an even number which is perfect for card or board games. I have four people in my immediate family and I came from a family of four as did both my Mother and Father. Thank you for this post. Until today I did not realize how integral this number is in my life.

    I wear glasses, so that means I have four eyes, right?

    Happy anniversary! My sister and I are coming up on 10 years (in September) since she started her (which became our) blog. We rarely ever get any comments on it, so we’re hoping to get at least 10 so we can do a 10 item giveaway then.

    The number 4: We have 4 children, 2 of those have 4 children each which adding to our others equals 12 ( 3×4) grandchildren. My husband was second of 4 boys. My favorite grade was Grade 4– I adored my teacher and she named her daughter after me! Our eldest granddaughter, Nyah, is uniquely blessed to find 4-leaf clovers frequently. When Nyah’s dad, our eldest, and his wife adopted, they called their adoption process Four Leaf Love. The fourth leaf is now 3. Her name is Azaria and they all traveled to Ethiopia to adopt her. 4 is a wonderful number and your flower foursomes are beautiful. I’d be delighted to win one. Thanks Bernie. Congrats and many blessings. Beth

    Goodness… I have several numbers that resonate throughout my life — combinations of the number 8 is the first as it’s my husband’s birthday, then along came our first child on the 18th of that same month. Then the youngest son was born 18 days from my birthday, and HIS eldest son’s birthday is the 28th of the same month as his grandfather and uncle. So I guess you could say 8 was my lucky number, which happens to be two times your Blogiversary number. Nice…

    The only significance the nunber four has for me is that it’s half of one of my favorite numbers–eight (the other one’s six, for June). Put the two together, and you get my birthday, 6/8, or June 8! What a coincidence!
    I wish you four x four more years (at least) of successful blogging!

    I smiled at this posting. And I will tell you a sweet story about my (then) little girl, Elizabeth. When she was learning how to make her letters, she would make an “E” that looked like a comb: 1 straight line down and a multitude of lines going out from it. Finally, after trying and trying to get her to make it correctly, I told her that she could only use one line for each person “one line for Daddy, one line for Mama, one line for brother, Jonathan and one line for you!”
    She looked at the “E” I made while telling her this, threw down her marker and said, “Why didn’t anyone tell me this! You let me make it all wrong!”
    Turns out that she thought you could make it any way you wanted and she liked hers better than mine and so didn’t want to change it. If she’s known it was a rule, she would have been doing it right all along!

    Now that she has a child, I will be reminding her of this. Parenthood, is like quilting, there is no way to be perfect, but lots of ways to be wonderful! Oh, and if it is a rule, tell your rule follower that!

    I’d love to use those lovely fabrics in the rug mugs I’m making for Christmas!

    The number 4 has not played a significant part in my life other than I can think that my mother was 1 of 4 children and my father was 1 of 4 brothers. 3’s and 5’s play a much more significant role in my like when I think about it.

    I love you bringing this to our attention -what a cool thing to think about.

Our mother has died, but she still holds her place in our little quad.

    I still remember when I found your blog…it was the Wedding Dresses post and I was just fascinated 🙂 And I’ve enjoyed keeping up with your blog as much as possible ever since then 🙂 Clothes and quilts and PIGS ha ha…have to throw a PIG in there, right? 🙂 Kudos to your daughter and her projects.

    I have four grands ( 3 from my DIL / one from my son…my ‘blood’ grand…but his older sister is always included so that actually makes five.

    AH here’s one haha ! : ) FOUR dogs in my life…my two and then two of my sons have ‘grand dogs’ for me to babysit and play with 😉

    I am one of 4 siblings. I have 2 sons, and with my husband, that makes us a family of four. I have owned 4 pets in my life, 1 dog and 3 cats. I have lived at 4 addresses in my life.

    Happy 4 blog years. Hum, how about 4 patches are a great quilt block. Or I’ll repeat what someone else said — I have 4 wonderful grands. Your fabric bundles are wonderful. Thanks for the opportunity to be a winner.

    I am the oldest of 4 children, born to a mother than was the 4th child of her parents. That’s about the extension of my relationship with the number 4 that comes to mind. Thank you for the chance to win. Congratulations!!

    Four really doesn’t have any significance to me or than I think of it as a lucky number. But I have not really reason. 🙂

    Four certainly is significant in my world – I have 4 brothers plus 3 sisters making 4 boys and 4 girls in my family. I was also born in the 4th month – April! I never thought of it as significant but I will look at 4 differently now.

    The number 4 has meant a lot to me. I sing in a chorus of Sweet Adelines International – the Pride of Kentucky Chorus, in Louisville, Kentucky – we are a chorus of women that sing barbershop music – in 4-part harmony. I have sung in quartets before – with 4 people… and this has become a huge part of my life. My mother sang in Sweet Adelines when I was born, so I grew up hearing this 4-part music… and now – I have been a part of my chorus for more than twenty-five years. These women are friends and a whole other family to me.

    Thank you so much for the generous giveaway – and congratulations on 4 years!!!

    Happy 4th Anniversary!
    We tend to like the number 4 also in our family. Our daughter was born on 4/21/1974. Her daughter was born on 4/18/2007, and our granddaughter was born on 4/18/2017. So honestly, we like 4’s and 7’s. My son was born on 6/7/1977.
    Thanks for the chance to win!

    The number I always felt drawn to is 9. But 4? Well, the 4 seasons. I not only love all 4 seasons of the year, but I also love the Four Seasons chain of hotels!
    Congratulations on your 4th anniversary. I have also enjoyed reading your blog and also following your ig account. – that’s it! 4 is important because it draws quilters and like minded people into online friendships from all 4 corners of the globe!

    Wish I had a significant reply for the number 4 but I don’t. I’m happy it is a meaningful number for you. Personally, I like 5 and 8 and my husband like 13. So, there you have it.
