This was my first blogoversary give-a-way. Not my first blogoversary but first give-a-way. My first year of blogging was pretty sparse. In fact almost every time I logged on I had to get my password and info from my daughter who has set it up for me. I have managed to progress a bit since then. Even have gotten a kudo here or there from her for things I have posted or added. Also have gotten the stern look over the glasses and the statement from her that I have become internet obsessed. I am not saying she is wrong for there have been some weeks when there has been way too much surfing, blogging, emailing, ebaying, website maintenace, etc.....but enough of that.
So this journey of my blogoversary has been a great one. I have enjoyed comments (and not yet responded to all yet), and loved looking at your sites and blogs. You guys are so creative and some of you are far to prolific in what you are stitching and completing. I can't compete!!!! I have to work long hours to support this obsessive habit of stitching I have. But I manage to come back to my stitching for that calming affect it has on a near daily basis.
I have enjoyed reading your blogs, seeing your techniques and learning so much. I found it interesting that we crafters are all so very similar. Yes, we have different likes and preferences on designers and fibers and finishes but we have that common thread (oh boo hiss - what a pun). Where else could others relate to the statement that something is missing on a day I do not stitch? At work, they look at me like I have 3 heads when I said I have to stitch each day or something is missing. When I try to explain it is like the athlete who works out and needs that endorphin rush each day my explanation gets lost in the roaring laughter of how much exercise I am getting threading the needle and moving it in and out of the fabric. I chuckle along with them and secretly know they are the ones that are missing out.........
I don't know about random number generators but I can do the good old folded slip of paper in a container. I thought in keeping with the season, my gravy boat would be appropriate. But 112 entries from 47 comments proved too much. So without further ado, the lucky winner is......TRACY! Congratulations. I will review your comment for contact info and be in touch soon.
