Thanks and More Thanks

Big thank-yous all around. I had 114 entries on my Blogoversary post! Wow ~ I am truly overwhelmed. It is just flabbergasting to have this many people actually interested in my blog. Thank you all so much for your support over the past three years. I drew the winners for my Blogoversary giveaway. That's right, you heard me correctly. Winners. I had so many entries I decided to draw two winners! Surprise!

The first winner is Lizy of LizyMorales. Lizy is a young but dedicated stitcher who's finishes are amazing. If you haven't seen her blog before I encourage you to check it out!

The next name drawn was Ma Teakettle of The Teakettle Corner. Ma's blog is full of darling stitching and she is so much fun ~ she is sure to keep you laughing. Another blog to add to your must-read list.

Congratulations, girls! I will start stitching you each something special very soon. Be patient, though...I am a really SLOW stitcher!

Since this post is all about thank-you's, how appropriate was this gift I received yesterday? The winner of my recent hidden giveaway was Bekca of The Stitching Lion. Well, Bekca decided she must make me a thank you gift in return and here is what she created...


Bekca made me a darling Halloween treat bag, sent three lovely threads and stitched a Margaret Sherry kitty (which she must know I adore Margaret Sherry kitties above all else) and created a greeting card out of it.


Isn't that the CUTEST kitty ever? I might need to carefully take apart the card and sew this kitty into a Halloween ornament. What do you think? Thank you so much Bekca. I love everything you sent!

I am behind on my blog reading ~ again. I still haven't finished my exchange project. Still haven't started my November Snapper block. *sigh* It's been one of those weeks, I guess. Here's to catching up!

Thank you for visiting my blog today!

Congratulations to the two winners. I would bet that you're not as slow as me at stitching lol. I love the gift you received and I would make it into a ornament. I was thinking that as I was reading it.

Congratulations to the winners! Love the giftie from Becka. That Margaret Sherry kitty is *so* cute! I think it would be a great idea to make into an ornie if there is enough seam allowance.
