Post Number 1600
Seven years and 1600 posts. All begun as a sort of a journal for me, and maybe someday for my grandchildren.
And what has happened has been friendships with wonderful people from all over the world who read my blog and leave comments (or just lurk -- Hi, Linda!!!). Wonderful people who have rejoiced and commiserated with me as the occasion would suggest, who made cow blocks for me a couple of years back. Nearly five years ago, when my husband experienced a sudden heart attack, the outpouring of prayers and good wishes from people who neither of us had ever met was overwhelming.
For my celebratory give-away, I asked readers to tell me their favorite color and suggested I would send a gift package that would include a mug rug in that color. I had such fun reading the comments!
After determining that red was the favorite favorite color, with 14 people liking it best, I drew a name from the red group and it is Kathie who is Inspired by Antique Quilts. Kathie, please email your snail mail address to me so I know where to send your gift.
Then I thought that since purple is my favorite color, I really should do a purple mug rug for someone and drew out the name of Gretchen, who blogs at Stella Bella and has gorgeous cats. Gretchen, I'll need your address, too.
Tomorrow my dear blogless friend Helen and I are going to indulge in a bit of retail therapy. I'll see what I might find in red and purple to include in the packages that will be sent out as soon as the rugs are finished, hopefully within a week.
