100!!!

Warning: Picture heavy post...but stick with me...the big news is at the end of the post!!!


Wow! I can't believe it has been soooo long since my last post! So much has happened since then! I guess that is what summer time weather and working 70+ hours a week will do to ya...

So, since I last posted the family we had in our backyard has all grown up and left their nest. As promised, here is their last picture taken before they flew the coop.


We also made the trip to Indy to attend a friends wedding and in doing so got to catch up with a lot of very dear friends (two of which are pregnant!!!). The wedding was beautiful and we had a great time just getting out of town for a weekend.

Also, I haven't had the opportunity yet to share my birthday present from DH with all of you. It was a really good one so be prepared...


An sewing/embroidery machine! Though this little contraption will strictly be used for embroidery (no detaching that monster embroidery unit and I couldn't neglect my first love - my Bernina!). I've already put it to good use making a gift for a friend.




Now, for the big news.
In celebration of my 100th post and my new embroidery machine I will be hosting a giveaway! The lucky winner will receive a custom made zip pouch by yours truly! I will customize fabric color/ribbon and embroidery to suit your style (limited to what is in my stash). How do you win??? Simply leave a message on this post! For an extra chance at winning blog about my giveaway and for another extra chance just post my little button on your sidebar.

Simple as that. In your comment be sure to list your favorite color and a link to your page if you blogged/used my button. The giveaway will officially end on Saturday, August 9, 2008. The winner will be announced here Saturday afternoon. I will contact the winner once selected to work out details of their custom zip pouch (complete name vs. monogram vs. graphic etc).

Spread the word and good luck! It's great to be back to blogging!

edited to include, email me if you want the html for the button - i can't get it to post on blogger right now! stitchingsurgeon@gmail.com

I would love a personalized lil' pouch. Currently, one of my favorite colors is turquoise blue. But favorite colors are always changing and I'm not picky!

Wow! What a cute little zipper pouch and congrats on the 100th post as well as the embroidery machine! Yippeee! It is always hard to pick one favorite color but I will go with brown or green for today! ;)

Yay on the 100th post and may there be many 100s more.

What a cute zipper pouch! I don't really have a favourite colour but I will say red as that seems to take my fancy at the moment.
