Post 999 – Follower Giveaway

As I posted last week, I was close to 100 followers and 1000 posts and plan to have a giveaway for both.  Since this is post 999, this one will be about the giveaway for followers.  As of this morning I have 105 followers – I appreciate each one of you and would love to send you each something but that just won’t work.  Instead, if you are a follower (new or old) and post a comment on this message, I will pick a name for this.

This is a great basket from Baskets by Dawn.  It is called a cabinboy and I liked it so much somehow I bought two.  It is great to carry any small project – applique, embroidery, yo-yos or even socks.  Just now looking at the basket, I see that there is even a dime in it.  Not sure how that got there but I will send it along to the winner.  I am sure I can find a few more things to put in the basket before it goes into the mail to the lucky follower.

In your comment, tell me what you are currently working on.  No other requirements other than that you are a follower and you post a comment.  I will be at a retreat/vacation until the 20th so will pick the winner on July 21, which is my grandson Emilio’s 7th birthday!

Stay tuned for another giveaway announcement on my 1000th post.

Added:  If you do not hear back from me in a couple of days, it is because you are set to no-reply and I do not have your email address.  If you are set as no-reply you need to give me your email address or I can’t contact you.  Unfortunately, that means your name will not go into the drawing.

  3. Melinda congratulations on 100 & 1000! I love your blog almost as much as I love your quilts.
    I am working on a quilt for my grand daughter. I have 6 grands with one on the way and have only finished quilts for the two oldest (3 & 2 yo). I need to get busy!

  4. Oops, I forgot to tell you what I am working on! I am working on a disappearing 9 patch quilt for my FIL. I have the top together, just trying to decide if it needs borders and need to piece the back.

  11. I've been reading your blog for several years and I enjoy seeing what you're working on. I'm working on a large scale Grandmother's Flower Garden that I cut out in the early 90's using Sharon Hultgreen's Easy Hexagons Ruler. My taste in fabric sure has changed over the years! I'll be glad to get this UFO done. It is ALL Y seams! Good thing I don't mind doing them!

  27. Glad to count myself as a follower even though I've only been for the last hundred or so posts. I have been working on a feathered star quilt - actually I have 12 of the 13 stars finished. I also am working in a couple of knitted sweaters for my tv time. The basket sure would look good holding my yarn!

  29. Love that basket! It'll be great to keep a yoyo project I want to start this fall for a tablecloth I've been meaning to make since forever! Very pretty.
    My last projects have been not so much quilty ones...a dress to hem for a bridesmaid, curtains for my grandson's new room (waiting for baby bro to take the nursery over), nursing covers and burp cloths. After that, no sewing till Aug/Sept. My brother and his family along with my mother are driving up from Florida to spend a few weeks...need to deep clean and prepare for that....
