I thought I can remember...

Some time ago I decided to celebrate my first blogoversary. I had a poll and you decided that you like to win cross stitch supplies. I made an executive decision and changed the prize from cs supplies to memory stick.
Would like to know why? Well, my memory is good but kind of short... I created this blog not a year ago but two (sometime in September 2007???), it wasn't active though and my first post ever in the blogland was February 2, 2008. So, no matter what, my memory is somewhat blurry. On the very bottom of my blog I installed a counter and from now on I will remember when is that blogoversary!

Here is my giveaway (if I know that you are a stitcher, I will include a few "extras", some surprise cross stitch supplies) and rules are under the picture.

To be eligible for the draw you should:

1. Leave a comment under this post (you can leave many comments, but only those under this post will count for the draw).
2. If your blog doesn't link back, or if you do not have a blog, please make sure to include your email address so I can let you know if you win.
3. If you are follower of this blog (old or new, it doesn't matter) I will enter your name twice.
4. All entries must be received by midnight (PST) February 28 and the winner will be announced Monday morning, March 1st. 
I hope that you like my prize and good luck!

And here is a view from my window, I have the most awesome, huge icicles hanging right behind the window:


  1. hey there
    Wow nice giveaway
    I am not a stitcher but do paint and photography.
    Please put my name in the hat!!

    I will come and follow ya too

  2. I know that the memory stick is used on a computer, right? My son has one and he tried to teach me. I am still not computer sauvy like he is. A bit of a scary cat, I am. Anyway, love ur idea of the give-away. I am an avid cross-stitcher. Working on O'Canada soon.

    Please put my name in the hat too.

  12. You are too funny about your memory! But great idea as I have many memory sticks for photos, but should get all my xs stuff saved on one! Are you going to eat one of those icicles??? I loved doing that as a kid!
