A milestone!

I've reach a milestone! This is my 200 post - and it is time for a giveaway! The giveaway is a thank you for reading my ramblings and leaving me comments full of encouragement, advice and smiles. Please make sure that I have a way of contacting you if you are the winner! The winner will be announced on Sunday, June 12th. There is no rules for this giveaway, you do not have to be a follower (if you are thank you so much!), you do not have to mention about this giveaway on your blog (if you do I really appreciate it) but you should leave here a comment or two.

This is what you'll get:

Mary Kay mini body lotion set

a chart "Schoolgirl Lessons" from Little House Needleworks,
a piece of fabric and silk floss (Cranberry from Gloriana)
If it happens that the winner is not a stitcher I will stitch it for you!

package of rose-hip tea (grown and made in the Yukon).
Did you know that we have tons of wild roses here?

Stitchy update

Last week I was stitching my Guardian Angel. It was so nice to get back to my little stitches.

8,800 stitches of 112,000. I still have a very long way to go...

And the Royal Wedding goes to...

Remember my Round Robin (kind of)? Well, Patty was the winner and she is the host of that RR. Visit her blog if you would like to play.

Have a great week everyone!

    I'm hoping that your thumb has recovered, and you're able to stitch comfortably again.

  33. Evalina,

    Congrats on your 200th post! Your Haed is looking fantastic, I have yet to even try one of the ones I have.

    I'd love to entered in your giveaway, I love MK lotions, but I rarely indulge due to the cost and I will always jump at the chance to win a LHN chart and of course, the Glorianna floss. I only have a few LHN charts and I've tried Glorianna once when I received it in a giveaway and I loved it!


Thank you for leaving your comments. They mean a world to me, keep me inspired and motivated.
