5000 Visitors!

Wow, I've had 5000 visits to my blog since I started counting last summer!

I'm planning to have a give-away in honour of this event - it'll come soon, the fabrics are almost chosen :) But first I have some fun posts lined up about a new technique I learned at an event organized by my quilt guild!

Stay tuned, and thanks to every one of you who stops by to see what's new in the world of this PEI quilter and especially to all those of you who take the time to drop me a line!


PS: just out of curiosity, I googled the number 5000, strange idea, I know :)

I learned that James Madison's portrait was printed on the 5000$ bill until it was discontinued in the late 60s.

I also learned that a lot of people wonder if the Series 5000 Sleep Number Beds are better than the Series 7000 :)

And from Wikipedia I learned:
5000 (five thousand) is the natural number following 4999 and preceding 5001. Five thousand is the largest isogrammic number in the English language.

So I had to look up isogrammic:
An isogram (also known as a "nonpattern word") is a logological term for a word or phrase without a repeating letter. It is also used by some to mean a word or phrase in which each letter appears the same number of times, not necessarily just once.

I didn't bother to look up logological, because I got the gist of it the answer. But really, 5000 being the largest isogrammic number in the English language...

... who would have thunk???
