Bloggerversary Prize Sign Ups!

Hello Friends! In celebration of my two year "BLOGGERVERSARY", I finished a small square that I will finish into an ornament to hang on your Christmas tree this year. Here it is (unfinished of course):
The Prairie Schooler ~ "Up on the Housetop" #25
Stitched on 32 ct. Sassy's Fabbys Creamy Cocoa
Fibers: DMC
Will be finished as an ornament for your 2008 Christmas Tree
If you would like to sign up for a chance to win this piece to help me celebrate my 2 year Bloggerversary, then please leave a comment on this post only from now until October 1st. A winner will be drawn at random on October 1st.
In the meantime, please know that this is just a small token to give back to my faithful community of readers, even if you comment or not, you have enriched my life. Blogging has really changed the way I think about my stitching life and my personal life. I have found friends, I have found a community that shares my love of stitching, I have learned so much from you all. We share our joys, together carry the burden of our sorrows, we listen to each other when we are angry, we disagree with each other at times.....just like in a family. My life would not be as full as it is presently if I had not embraced this when I stumbled upon it. Thank you for the opportunity of sharing my love of cross stitching and my life with you! I shall be forever in your debt.
Until next time ..... sign up!

    I'd love to be included in your blogoversary draw! You know already that you (and Fair Squares) in turn were my inspiration for starting my blog and for trying the Tin finish and the flatfold finish from your wonderful tutorials. I have to agree with all the things you said about the stitching blog community, I am inspired to try new things on a daily basis.

    Thank you for being an inspiration to me. Without you knowing it, you inspired me to try stitching on linen (and I'll never go back to aida!), and to start stitching regularly again after a very long hiatus. You also introduced me to the world of RRs and exchanges. Thank you!

  88. Hmm, now let me see . . . Do I want to enter a drawing to win a lovely Christmas ornament of a pattern designed by one of my all-time favorite designers that was stitched by a generous, kindhearted, expert needlewoman whose skill is beyond reproach and finished expertly by the same?

    Are you KIDDING?!?!? OF COURSE, I DO!!! Please, dear Vonna, please, please, please add my name to your drawing. Meanwhile, I'll just be sitting here trying to figure out how I can possibly continue to hold my needle to stitch while I have all of my fingers crossed for good luck . . .
