I checked back and found that I'd been blogging for 2 years this coming Saturday. So, following the crowd, I'm going to have a Blogiversary Giveaway! Leave a comment, on this blog entry, before Saturday, April 4th at 6 p.m. I will draw a name to receive a prize. And THEN, I will draw a second name to receive a prize. YES, INDEEDY! I'm giving away 2 prizes. Since I am primarily a quilter and a knitter, I've decided to give one quilty prize and one knitty prize. The first name drawn will need to tell me if they want the quilty prize or the knitty prize. The second name will get the one that's left. Here is just a peek at what the prizes will be - one quilty part and one knitty part.

That's a ball of Fiddlesticks Zephyr laceweight yarn in a beautiful plummy pink colorway - over 600 yards. And next to it is a charm pack of Moda Poetry Collection 5 inch squares. I'll include some other stuff in the package to make it worth your two cents worth. I don't get a lot of folks who post on my blog, unlike some of you I could name, so I think the odds are pretty good for anyone who enters. I've opened up the comments so even those without Blogger or Google accounts can comment this time. That will allow more of you to enter.

Today is April 1st. For most people, that means April Fools Day. Now, I've never had much use for this day, it's always meant a lot of folk could be mean to others with permission from society. I don't care for practical jokes that make fun of other people cause I don't like having that done to myself. So, I'm telling you all this, the above giveaway is NOT A JOKE! It's real and I will keep my word. Promise!!!

Thanks for stopping by. And Good Luck.

I enjoy reading your blog. I check
regularly for new posts. I do more
quilting than knitting! Do love the color of that yarn, though! Happy Blogaversary! Hugs, Gwen

Hi, Sal. Put my name in the pot. I'll take either. Keep blogging I love to hear from you and this is a way to find out how everything is and what you are doing while sitting at the computer.

Happy blogiversary!

I think this is the first April Fools Day that I haven't been tricked by anyone.

I feel the same way about April Fool's Day! I dread it. It's true--most jokes are mean and I don't like people messing with my head. I have a frail enough grasp on reality anyway....ha!

Anyway...I'm in! Both things would be lovely, so even if I'm first, I'll take what the other person doesn't want.

BTW, love your new header! New to me anyway...I usually read you on my Google reader that doesn't show the header. Nice to pop in this way and see your new look!
