A Milestone and a Giveaway!!


Well my 200th post came and went last week and as promised here is the giveaway to celebrate that milestone. But first, let me say that I began this blog about a year ago and never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined meeting and becoming friends with so many people. Many live a world away from me yet through our blogs and emails I feel like they are a next door neighbor... or at least they should be. :D


Originally I wanted to use a fellow blogger's idea of a giveaway consisiting of products made right here in our state. (WV)
However, everything that I could come up with, obtain easily and ship safely was a NO GO.

So my giveaway is all about crafting....sewing to be more specific.(My favorite hobby!)

Included are:

~Sew Pretty Homestyle- a 144 page book of simple hand-sewn accessories for your home as well as a yard of a pink stripe and rose fabric by Marcus Brothers.
~3 issues of my favorite x-stitch magazine "Cross Country Stitching"
Issues are Aug 1996, June 2003 and Feb. 2009
~15"x18" piece of 14 count Aida cloth
~8" embroidery hoop and a little pair of nippers to cut your thread with.
I even included a coffee mug that my Sister-in-Law picked up for me at the Wheeling Regatta last month.

What better way to spend a cool evening than curled up with a warm cup of tea or cocoa and a project to stitch away on.

Now for the rules:
1. Be a follower of my blog.
2. Leave me a comment on THIS post and I will enter your name once.
3. Post about my giveaway on your blog for a 2nd entry.
(Be sure to drop me a line and let me know that you posted about it!)
4. Last day to enter will be Sunday October 25th and winner will be
announced on Monday the 26th.
Good Luck!

I'm a new follower. Love your deer pics. They seem to be in my back yard a little more often than I would like --- and our dog doesn't even bark at them unless I come outside.
