A New Web Site and My 100th Post (and Giveaway)

I have been busy creating a new web site  It has been a lot of fun and I hope you will stop on over and check it out.  I look forward to your suggestions and comments.

On another note, this is my 100th post!  Who would have ever thought I would make it this far.  I have to say that I really enjoy blogging and reading all of your comments.  I am not sure if all of you non-bloggers know this or not, but when you leave a comment (and you do not have a blog) it shows up as anonymous.  I cannot reply to these types of comments even if I want to (and I do!) because it does not know your email address.  So if I know your email address, just leave your name.  If I do not know your email address and you would like me to respond, leave your address in your comment.

So now for the giveaway.  I have been using a lot of lace in my projects these past few weeks, so I thought I would send the lucky winner 2 yards each of 9 different types of lace/ribbon.  I have also included a pin cushion that I made.  I really like it, hope you do too.  For those of you who make flowers or would like to, I have added some stamen (below the pin cushion) for the centers of your flowers.

Rules to enter the giveaway:
1.  Leave me a comment.
2.  Become a follower (or if you already are one) and leave me another comment for a second chance.
3.  Blog about it and leave me another comment for a third chance.  Please leave me a link, so I can check out your blog.

I will pick a winner next Thursday, December 9, 2010.
