Thanks to my peeps

Hey all you following-along friends! Thanks for your patience while I catch up on many, many commitments I made this month, both in my creative world and my mommy life. I would love to send each and every one of you a special little thank you gift to celebrate my 75th post (which was, ahem, 10 posts ago!!). But let's be real, you may wait a lifetime for that to happen. So, keepin' it real, I would like to send this to one of you:

I have made this super-sweet & handy-needle-packet-holder-book-thingy for someone on my Follower List. If you've been checking in periodically but have commitment issues that have prevented you from jumping on to my creative little train here, I encourage you to go crazy and take a seat! If your name is on my Follower list (over there on the right sidebar) by Good Friday April 2 at 8:00 pm PST, you'll be entered to win this sweet little case plus a couple of my favourite little Olympic items that I collected for this occasion.

It's easy! No blog required. No posting this giveaway to the world. No trick questions. You don't even have to comment!

Just my way of sayin' thanks for stopping by (and I don't bite you know. Leaving a comment is your little way of sayin' you enjoy what you see here, so don't be shy: say hi!)

Every name on the Follower list will be put in a hat, I'll draw a winner on Friday night and post about it on Saturday. You'll have to check back in (aha! that's how I know you actually follow along...aren't I crafty?... in a clever, sneaky way I mean) and send me your mailing address to actually score the goods!

p.s. for inquiring minds that want to know, the needle book pattern was a free tutorial from Cinderberry Stitches a few years ago and for the embroidery I used a stitchery pattern by Crabapple Hill. Those Aussies are so talented!

Oh it's beautiful! I hope I am the lucky one!
Wait a second--I am a follower but don't see my name there. Do you?? You are one of the blogs I follow on Blogger. Maybe there is some setting I need to change...

Beautiful stitching! Hmmm... I seem to have had the same problem as Amy. You are in my blog roll and reader. I follow you too. But not in your sidebar. Well, I just took care of that... I am there now.
