The One Thousandth Post

Holy Macaroni! Its here!!

1,000 Posts, last published on Nov 2, 2009, is what my blog's dashboard reads now.

It's hard to believe it's been 1000 posts already. Even though there should have been more - but life sure can get in the way... and sometimes you feel as what you want to share or post means nothing to someone else. But I'm glad I have posted.

Some of you have been here since the beginning, and I thank you for that! Some of you take the time to comment on life's little post, I thank you for that. Some of you have become a follower of this blog, I thank you for that. Some of you have me in your blog list, I thank you for that. And the friendships I have made from blogging, I most importantly thank you for that!

So, in honor of this post - I'm offering a give away. Since this blog started out mainly about life and cross stitching, and over the 500+ (give or take a few) previous posts, its found the love of quilting too.

So, I was racking my brain - what can I offer for a giveaway prize - as I have stitchers and quilters and lurkers. And the other day, I looked to my right at the sewing machine.. and the light bulb went on... (not literally...LOL)

I made a Pincushion & Scrap/Thread catcher. Its perfect for those orts, and needles on the stitching chair. And its awesome too, next to the sewing machine to hold those thread tails that were snipped, and holding onto those pins.


















So, if you would like to win this Pincushion & Scrap/Thread catcher - Please leave a comment to this post. If you are a follower (or become one), you will get an extra entry. Post it to your blog with a link back, and you will get another entry. Everyone is welcome to enter!

I'll leave the giveaway open until Friday, November 13th.

Good luck!
