I can't believe it!  Today is my 400th post.
source (

It is insane to believe I started this little blog back in March 2009

To celebrate, I thought I would do a little giveaway.

I haven't decided what it will be yet...
could be a scissor fob, could be a stitched small

I also don't know if I'm giving one away or 2 or even 3

If you would like to get in on this surprise giveaway, leave me a comment below, or this time I'm even accepting comments done on my Facebook post from the BlogLovin post.

This isn't mandatory, but I would also like to know either your favorite stitching blog, website, or online store.

I will pick the winner(s) on November 30th.

The only other stipulation is that I can't guarantee when you will get your gift, but it will be before the end of 2014.

Thanks for taking the time to Visit my blog today... I may not comment back on your comments, but I definitely read each and every one of them!

EDIT: If you post as anonymous, please include your email address, or email me directly after you have commented.  I would hate for you to miss out by me not being able to find you!

Congratulations on 400 posts! I would love to be entered in your giveaway, please. My favorite online stores are Heaven and Earth Designs for charts, and 123Stitch! for supplies. I have a ton of favorite blogs, including yours, and one of them is The Cross Stitching Librarian. She posts almost every day, and she stitches so quickly and does beautiful work.

Scary how fast you can get up to that number isn't it! I have no worries about supplies etc, you do a pretty great job at adding me to "the collection" when you are ordering if I need anything. So online stores - don't have a credit card so those are out :-) But of course Ann's is my go to place always. But I can comment on the blog I read all the time - it is Miss Zoot (, been reading for years and laugh almost every time I go there.
Congratulations on your 400 posts!

Congrats Bonnie!!!! 400 is a good number! I'd love to win something made by you!!!

Hmmm right now I'd say my favourite blog is 24 to 30 but it's not a stitching blog, the writer just inspires me and I find I need that on a daily basis lately.

Congrats on 400 posts! I'd like the chance to win a handmade from you!

I like the blog Stitching Dreams. Carol posts early in the morning so that here in the West, I get to read her post before I leave for work. They're lengthy and filled with her beautiful finishes or pics of her latest RAKS or stitcher gifts.

123Stitch! Is my kind of ONS!

My favorite online stitching store is Stitches 'n Things (

I don't really have a favorite blog to read. I like ALL of them. Each one is a reflection of the blog owner's personality.

I can't pick a favorite blog, because there are so many that I love to read. I can pick a fave on- line store though and that would be 123 stitch.
I would love a chance in your giveaway...thanks!

Congrats on blogging everyday and hitting that milestone in November.

My favorite blog for fun right now is "That's What We Said" I love their whatta man Mondays, where they pit two hotties against each other and you vote on the winner! Great way to start a week!
