Almost 300 Followers.....Giveaway Coming Soon!

Hi Blogerettes!  I am getting near my 300th follower and I'm as happy as a pig in mud!  Well, at least a pink pig in mud!

I'm so happy that I am going to be having a giveaway just as soon as the number turns.  I'm currently at 291!

I cannot believe when I started blogging over seven months ago, that anyone would care what I had to say or show.  I am so appreciative of all my blogger friends, and I can't tell you how much you all mean to me.  I am definitely feeling the love and I want to give some of it back.  I adore each and everyone of you and thank you from the bottom of my pea-pickin heart!!

I'll be thinking about my giveaway and I'll have it posted soon.
In the meantime, I'll just show you a few things that I have worked on over the weekend.

Oh, how I love chenille!

Oh, how I love burlap and french!

Oh, how I love waffle-weave fabric!

Oh, how I love my Blogerettes!!!

Hi Sissie, it was nice to meet you today at the MM shop. I love your booth and you blog too now that I have looked at it. The rose pillow shams you had on display were so beautiful. I have a friend who adores every thing roses, so that would be a good birthday present. Yikes, I should have bought them before someone else does! Regards, Margie
