My First Blogoversary TODAY!

I've been watching the countdown for months now!  I'm so happy that I started this cross stitch blog last year and started following other blogs and joining Yahoo groups too. I have learned so much in the last year about cross stitching.  Ten years had gone by with no stitching, and I'm so happy to be back!  Since I'm still building up my stash with floss, fabric, and patterns, I don't have much to give away, so I will offer a $10 gift certificate from 1-2-3 Stitch instead!  Then anyone in the world can win, and I don't have to worry about postage!

To enter My First Blogoversary Giveaway, just leave a comment below for one entry. If you mention this giveaway on Facebook, leave another comment here with your FB name for another entry.  I will draw a winning name on Wednesday, September 28, at noon PST.

Happy Stitching and Good Luck!

Addendum:  I have noticed that lots of comments come to my email inbox with <noreply-comment@blogger.com> instead of showing your email address. I won't be able to contact you if you win. To change this setting, go to Design, Dashboard, then click Show my email address. Good luck!

Just for fun, here are pics of my 3 cats doing what cats do best!  These pictures weren't staged either! They always like to hang out together!

Bubbles is the calico cat, Billy is the brown tabby cat, and Blueberrie is the black & white tuxedo cat.

Jennifer said...

Aren't cats awesome? LOL ... makes me miss mine. I couldn't take her with me when I moved to Canada to get married years ago. :-( As for what I would do with the gift certificate ... I do a Christmas exchange with a friend of mine in California every year. Susan has no family, so she really enjoys our advent exchange and this would go toward that. 123 is our site of choice. Joanne is amazing. Thank you for allowing me to enter your drawing, and congrats on your 17 finishes after not stitching for such a long time. It must be a great feeling! :-)
