It couldn't have come on a more perfect day too. Yesterday was my birthday.
Here is what she sent me for naming her two little meeces....
|A handmade pin pillow, two English Breakfast tea bags,|
safety pins (for my rusting adventures), a needle tin and
a skein of Poppy Dragon Floss!
|The back of the pin pillow - isn't that cute?|
Thank you so much Mouse. I love it all, especially the pin pillow because I know it was made with your wee little paws! ♥ ♥
I don't know why but I had to smell the tea bags. Does anyone else do that or am I weird? Wait, maybe you shouldn't answer that one.
|Bet you can't guess how old I am!|
My requested birthday gift from Masterchief was for me to sit my lazy bee-hind in my big girl chair all day and do whatever I wanted. He had to fend for himself in the kitchen. Well that was the plan but by dinner time I felt bad that he was eating hot dogs for breakfast and lunch so I got up and made him fish and rice, one of his favorites.
We did not win the lottery last night. Now that would have been an interesting post, huh? I can just imagine the pictures that would go with that one!
I mentioned some time ago that I wanted to offer a giveaway for a few different things: this summer marks 3 years of blogging, I had 312 followers although I see now that I am down one. Oh well. Oh and my birthday was this month. I could think of tons of things to celebrate with a giveaway including all of you who have faithfully followed me and those of you who take the time to leave your kind words in a comment. I appreciate it more than you know!
So......this giveaway is open to my current followers only. I have always encouraged new followers before and I STILL DO! But this time I want to thank those who are already followers.
As usual, I don't have a specific bounty in mind but I will gather things between now and drawing time that I'm sure you will be happy to receive.
To enter: Please leave a comment on this post only telling me who your favorite designer is and anything else you would want me to know about your stitching style and tastes.
Last day to enter: August 17th.
Drawing: August 18th.
