Happy Blogiversary to Me!

This is my 400th blog post! Congratulations to those of you who've been with me the whole way and welcome to the new followers who've recently joined me.
LarryPug, chief quilt inspector and blog model extraordinaire, helps me layout some blocks. Doesn't everything look better with a pug on it?
Here are some random facts and figures that I find interesting.

Read my first PugMom Quilts! blog post. I started this blog as a personal quilting diary. I'm still amazed that other people want to read it. I have fabulous blogging friends that write to me almost every day! And followers!

My husband and my Mom are still my biggest fans, but in addition to them, I now have 77 followers through BlogLovin', 56 through email, and 50 through Google Plus (I still have no idea how Google Plus works.)

I have six quilts out to be machine quilted right now. I can't wait to get them back and finish them! They are: Wild Thing, Blue and Purple Scrap Wave, Rangeley Star, Purple Yellow Brick Road, Pugtopia (my Pug Row by Row) and Rainbow Bargello.

So far this year I've completed 35 projects. Four projects were quilts, 15 were pillowcases, 9 were zipper bags, 3 aprons, 1 table runner and 2 multi-pocket bags. I've kept one small quilt and one multi-pocket bag. Everything else has been given as a gift. I just added my 2015 finished quilts page to my blog. You can see it here.

I've got five quilt tops that just need borders and they too can become finished projects, perhaps even in 2015!

Last month Mike and I celebrated our 40th anniversary! Ok, it was 40 months of marriage, but by the time we get to 40 years, we might not remember.

Last month, LarryPug also celebrated his three year anniversary of joining our family.

LarryPug is a nutball, but we love him to pieces.
