Real Quick -

Many thanks to those of you who have wondered why I was MIA.  You know how we women are - can't learn to say "No" well enough.  I've just had a lot of stuff going on that I've said "Yes" to and it's been keeping me from doing the things I really enjoy doing.  I've also had a bit of a health scare, but I'm OK; not to worry.

What I am putting this post up about is my Blogaversary.  Blogger tells me that I made my first post three years ago.  Wow, I can't believe it's been that long!

To celebrate, I'm having a giveaway.  Two weeks from now - or so - on the 14th of March - I'll draw the winner.  What's the prize?  Well, it's all my gently used Lizzie Kate charts for Christmas Rules.

It includes all the charts, the freebie header in case you want to do it all as one like I did, and the bonus chart "Jingle All the Way".  Most people didn't put the bonus on their piece, but I did.  What is NOT included is all the little buttons and things.  Leave a comment on this post or put on your blog for a second chance to win. 

Granddaughter's birthday is coming fast, and this was a Make-It request.  More on that in another post.

I am totally stoked about the trim I designed for this pillow that I'm delivering to a customer today:

Hope you all have a wonderful Leap Day tomorrow!

  12. Don't enter me into the giveaway - I've got so much to stitch already, but I just love the trim on your pillow. What a great idea!

  13. Please enter me in. I loved it when your page loaded because the header is so captivating -- nice work.

  14. Happy 3rd Blogoversary! Love LK's designs, sure would love to join your giveaway! Thank you for the chance!


  15. Happy Blogversary! Would love a chance to win.

  16. You DESIGNED that trim?? Oh my gosh--too cool! I am so impressed. What a cool idea! Love the pillow, and your granddaughter's gift is so pretty. My grandmother used to make things for me and it's one of the memories of her that I cherish. I have a friend who, as a kid, borrowed a Halloween costume my grandmother made for me & every so often I want to post on her FB page that I haven't forgotten that she didn't give it back. LOL

    I'll pass on the giveaway (with thanks) because I have so many Christmas things to stitch that I know I wouldn't stitch that soon--and I'd hate to be a hog when somebody else might get to it sooner rather than later. Happy blogaversary!

  17. I too can't help it...when a great opportunity arises...CHARGE!!!! LOL I would love a chance to win your giveaway. XD
