I'm not one to gush. But lately it's been on my mind that I would like to say thank you to all of you very kind readers of this blog. I do enjoy knitting, sewing and gardening, and it's been an immense pleasure to be able to share what I've created with people who really appreciate these things. I'm honoured to have such gifted and talented people as my friends. Your comments have always been kind and helpful, and just having someone say "have a great day" brightens my day.
I've now been writing in this blog for over a year. I told my husband recently that I had over 80 followers, and he was stunned! I know it's not a lot in comparison to what most of you have, but for me to have 80 people who would care to stop by here and find my little ramblings worth a repeat visit ... I find that incredible. To be able to have little conversations with all of you too has been such fun. I love it!!
And now I want to celebrate all of this. "Perfect" opportunities have slipped away. My one year blogging anniversary ... poof! gone by. My birthday ... poof! My 25th wedding anniversary ... poof! Reaching a nice even number (80) ... poof! So I decided that now that the Christmas season is very quickly approaching, and in the spirit of giving and giving thanks, this seems the best opportunity to celebrate. And what better way to celebrate than an actual tangible handmade-by-me gift to a lucky follower. I wanted to make something easy to mail anywhere, and decided to make a Christmas table runner. It's a generous size, measuring 14" x 43".
Now before you realize it, I'm going to tell you (it's not quite finished ... shhhh ...). I know, I know ... awful of me to offer an unfinished gift ... but trust me, it will be finished this week ... it just needs the backing and a bit of quilting. Time was just against me this entire weekend, but I really wanted to get this posted on my blog to give all of you a chance to enter the draw, and still leave enough time to ship it out.
This give-away is open worldwide.
If you would like a chance to win this table runner, all you need to do is this:
1. Be a follower of my blog, because it's you the steady followers, readers & commenters that I want to thank.
2. Leave a comment in this post that you'd like your name entered in the draw.
3. I'll leave this draw open until midnight Thursday, November 28, 2013.
4. On the morning of Friday, November 29, I'll toss all the names in a hat, and choose the lucky winner and notify you if you won. Please make sure there's some way I can contact you.
Thank you all again for being a part of this blogging adventure. Best of luck to each of you!
