200th Post Giveaway & More Incredible Women

Hi Everyone!!!

Thanks for your support over at Kara's "Really Incredible Women" Blog. She is so happy that all of you came by to say hi and left some comment love. I'm so happy you enjoyed learning more about me. I really worried quite a bit about it. Silly me! You are all so wonderful and incredible yourselves. I really have LOVED getting to know a lot of you and follow you on your blogs. You are ALL so inspirational to me!!! Thanks!

I sent Kara the picture of what I made special for the giveaway on her blog. She will be posting it today. So go check it out and remember to stop by each day until Saturday. Kara had me answer a total of 10 questions and you just may be interested in my answers. Also, I had a chance to finish my advice that you'll find on her sidebar. It's listed under Advice for Women and Advice for Moms. Hope you're inspired.

Now for my 200th Post Giveaway!!!

Are you excited? You should be....

You know how much I love my signature Black & White and Red All Over Fabric, Right?

Well...

I made this really cute "itty bitty ditty bag" and Darling Earrings and I'm trying to finish making the a matching "Buttercup Bag" to finish off the set for the winner of my 200th post Giveaway. I'm also giving away another set over at Kara's Blog but done in different colors. Go have a look.

Just so you know it's been a really crazy busy day for me so, I didn't quite get The Buttercup Bag made for my giveaway but I will add a picture of it later in the day or the next day (just in case I can't get it made). Anyway, you can imagine what it will look like right? Right!

Thanks for understanding . . .

Now here's how you can enter the giveaway. . .
  • Leave one comment on this Blog Post for ONE entry.
  • Leave one comment on Kara's Blog for today's Post for ONE entry.
  • Then come back & leave me another comment telling me that you did it.
  • The Giveaway ends on Saturday, September 12th.
  • Make sure I can contact you by email or by responding to your comment.
  • If I can't get a hold of you I will pick another winner.
Thanks again for being a FOLLOWER of my blog and WELCOME to any new visitors. I hope you enjoy your visit.

Pat said...

Congrats on 200 posts! I truly enjoy your blog for the quilting AND for the family stories, too. I did go and comment on Kara's blog (today the questions included your tips for beginning quilters). I didn't see any photo there of your giveaway prize, but I'm wondering with the time difference if it's too early yet for that to show up? If so, I'll look again a bit later today. I'm on the east coast, so that may be why I don't see that yet.
