I am sorry this is so late! 

I tried to make the random . org widget 
show up but I can't get it to show up.


 Without further ado..........

The winner of the
book, needle book and floss 

Ah, Sivje, so many blessings this year, and you want just one?! :) Okay, one major blessing this year was when my husband bought me a new-to-me oboe. And I'm taking lessons. Huge blessing.

Praying now for your migraines. I can relate.

Also, I have been a long-time follower or yours with google reader, but I just now did the follower-thingy on your blogsite.

So Ruth, I need your address so I can
pop this bunch of goodies in the mail to you!!!

Thank you all for the migraine prayers.
I am starting to feel better.

Now, if only I could get my photos to load
so I could show some pretty pictures!

Happy Sewing!

My Belated Blogaversary - A Giveaway!

So, I am here. 

Really, I am.

But I have been battling stupid migraines
for a few weeks.

And I have sewn very little.

And the orange chair,
well it is still unfinished.

And yesterday was my 
third Blogaversay!!!!!

So, by way of apology for my rude absence,
I decided to have a giveaway
of some of my favorite things!

Last year, I got to meet Bari J
at a book signing event for this book.

I had forgotten that I had already pre-ordered her
book from Amazon.

So in my excitement to meet her,
I bought another one so she could autograph it for me!

I was soooooo excited to meet her!

And this book is wonderful!

So wonderful that I decided to 
give away my extra copy
(not the autographed one, sorry.)
to one of you!

In addition,
I will include 
this darling Mary Engelbreit
needle card with 25 needles and a threader
and 6 skeins of bright DMC embroidery floss.

I adore all things M.E.
and thought it was about
time I shared.

So, how do you enter?

Well, how about you tell me one
way in which you have been blessed this year.

And if you want another entry,
tell me if you are a follower of this blog,
or become a follower and then tell me.

If you are a "no-reply blogger"
then leave me an email address so I can contact the winner.

I will post the winner on Valentines Day!

And I hope to have more done on the orange chair
by that time too!

And if you have a prayer to spare,
please pray that my migraine lets up

Thanks a bunch!

Happy Sewing and Good Luck!

These are from my phone
and I can't find the camera.)
