Contest Announced!

In one week on August 14, I will celebrate my one year BLOGGERVERSARY!
It has been a time well spent and I've enjoyed every minute of it! Because of my blogging I've become involved in exchanging (love it!), SAL's and Round Robins (never knew any of these existed!) and I have met and made friendships with people I believe will last a lifetime! Plus I've probably stitched more in one year than I've ever stitched before! What a motivator you all are :)
In honor of my Bloggerversary, and my thanks to my readers, I would like to hold a contest for an item that will be stitched and finished by me. I have the design picked out, kitted and ready to go, but I will not reveal what it is until I have a winner and it is finished.
So if you'd like to join in this most festive occasion and would like a chance of winning something stitched by me, then please leave a comment on this post only and I will add you to the list and you will be entered into the contest. My DD, Katie, will pull the winning participant out of the hat. This contest shall run from today (Aug. 7, 2007) until midnight on Aug. 13, 2007. Any persons visiting my blog and leaving me a comment on this post, is eligible for entering the contest. Have a great rest of the week and upcoming weekend! I'll see you here in one week for the results of the contest! ENJOY! And thank you for visiting my blog! Your visits both chatty and silent are so appreciated :)

  86. Wow Vonna, what a wonderfully generous way to celebrate your anniversary. I would love to enter if it's not too late. And, I must say this....your DH is an absolute keeper to buy you that awesome box for your fibers.

    You are so good about posting on other's blogs that I figured you had been doing this for quite some time. I'm impressed that you've only been at it a year. That's encouraging for me since I've only just started several months ago. I treasure each and every commment on my blog. Anyway, enough rambling. I just wanted to say howdy and put my name in the pot!
