A Hidden Giveaway

No one knew it but my Spooky Cats post was a hidden giveaway! That's right...everyone that commented on that post was secretly entered to win the Spooky Cat scissor fob and needleminder set. This was only a little "thank you" for commenting on my blog. I'm always astonished how many comments I get on posts and by how many followers I've attracted, so I wanted to give a little something back. Oh yeah, you wanna know who won, right? The winner is Bekca of The Stitching Lion. Congratulations, Bekca! If you could email me with your mailing address I will get the package sent soon! My email is in my profile. Thank you all for your comments and your encouragement. I am truly a fortunate blogger.

I'm working on another little pumpkin for the Great Pumpkin Challenge. This is from Lizzie*Kate's November blocks. Just a little quickie stitch to keep myself busy.

Some of you eagle-eyes out there will have noticed the Blogroll in my sidebar is different. Blogrolling announced it was shutting down as of November first. Sad, I've used the Blogrolling for my blog list since I started my blog. I went ahead and changed my list to Blogger's version and put in those blogs I'm following and imported from Google Reader. However...my old Blogroll had around 650 blogs and the new list only has around 450. Some are missing! *Gasp* This is terrible! If your blog is missing from my list let me know ASAP! And does anyone know why some of my blogs are listed as an Internet Explorer feed? WTF? Grrr, I hate change.

Thank you for visiting my blog today!

Good grief, does that mean I have to figure out how to change my Blogroll as well? I guess I can count on an evening gone :-P

I'm not sure if you were following my blog or not, but if so, it's missing too!

Sweet little pumpkin design

KarenV said...

I'm not on your list and I think I was before? That is a cute start, love the little crow.

Marlene said...

I was sure they would start making changes to Blogger, so a week or so after each blog I print the page and save them, it has now become my journal as well. If you do it often it does not become a task. It is also great for anyone who does not use the internet (there are a few).

Babs said...

Congratulations to the winner. Now I wished I came to look to the blogs earlier then lying in my bed with the flu :(

First day I got up again in over a week.

Carol said...
