One Last Giveaway

I have crawled from the napping couch because I remembered that I must post this giveaway before August is upon us! I am feeling better today; it may just be that I finally took a shower.

So here it is, the last in the giveaways to celebrate my five years of stitch bitchery. Next month, my little blog turns six. First grade! (Or do the August birthdays get to start early?)

This is the Blackbird freebie. It is stitched in lavander cashmere thread that was made in France. So luxe! We'll just have to wait to see what it turns into...I've been too sick to go get a zipper for a project bag.

Anyway, for this last giveaway, I want you to put two links into the comments: one link to your favorite post of mine and one to your favorite post from your blog*. Just for everyone's amusement.

I'll draw it on July 31.

*It's okay if you don't have a blog, you can still enter.

Don't know how to make a link in the comments? Let me share some of my ancient html knowledge. You need to use the sideways carets (above the comma and the period) to enclose this code:
open caret a href="http://url" close caret CLICKABLE WORDS open caret /a close caret. (Don't forget that last bit, slash a, because you need to tell it to turn off the link. Also, those quotation marks aren't optional.) Email me if you can't make it work.

I really liked the one about your Aunt or Grandmother retiring from her job at a small bar up in NH...but obviously (after 20 minutes) I am unable to locate I'm plugging my second favorite which was "Sneaking In"
found here
A favorite from my blog is the Thanksgiving day-before shopping spree around town:
and here
Glad you are feeling better.

I am just sneaking in a comment to say that I hope you'll soon be feeling fully recovered!

Here's my favorite of yours because I do so love the old lady count posts. And this one is one of mine because it just shows how I can go from being about to close my head in an oven to laughing all because of my kids.

It's lovely, I can't wait to see what you make with it. I hope you feel better soon.

I like the posts where you review the JCS ornament magazine example here and from my blog, probably Inner Child Doll class I took in January.
I find your blog more entertaining than mine. You have a better grasp on getting your thoughts accross & for me, by the time I get the picture taken --- I'm already pressed for time to move on to something else!!!
Enjoy the day --- Lelia

Having trouble getting comments

But I love your hunt at your parent house and my favorite comment from my blog is when the afghan was done as i didn't think I would ever get it done
