Anniversary Giveaway!

Okay, blogger is doing that stupid thing where it turns the pictures and no amount of editing can change its mind.

I'm sorry it's been a while since I posted. Things aren't easy for me at work and it's affecting, well, everything... so let's pretend I don't work!

Hooray! My blog is 5 years and 5 months old. I've been stitching and unstitching and restitching this prize, a heart for Valentine's day. (I knew I should have stitched a bitchy valentine!) I still need to do some backstitching which will make this look quilted.

I am going to finish it as a pillow, and those fabrics are what I will use. Your prize is the pillow without the form. It's easier to mail that way, even internationally.

I'll draw the prize Friday night, and if I hear from you soon enough, I'll send it out on Saturday. Comment on this post only.

The only news I have about my mermaid is bad, so I'll save it for Monday.

Thanks for reading!

I'm sorry to hear about work, and your mermaid. Oh no! And I'm going to have to wait until tomorrow to find out how bad it is.

On the plus side, though, that heart looks beautiful. Sideways and all. :)

I'm confused, didn't you do a blog anniversary gift not too long ago?

Sorry that work isn't going well - that does put such a damper on everything else. :(

Wow, five and half (almost) years! That's really a milestone.... Makes me feel like a newcomer! Congratulations - and here's to another half-decade! :D

Coral said...

Well done, so many years.

Send a sailor after the mermaid!! That will 'sort her out'!!

Send a sailor after work - if that doesn't work......

That picture looks great, better than the each time I try to put one in, I fail!!

Word verification - ovelint - huh?? Not lovelint?

Finally had a chance after the hols to catch up on your blog - sorry to hear things are crappy at work; hopefully will be resolved one way or another soon. Snap, my mum is turning 65 in April too, and as soon as I read that I panicked! 65! Bugger, I had forgotten this was a banner year. So now quickly to my stash to find something to start stitching TODAY...

Oh, and I'd love to win the non-bitchy Valentine's giveaway :)

I love the heart and the color combination.

Please enter my name in the drawing. The heart is cute.

Glenna said...

Lovely heart! Sorry about the sucky work--which has a way of curdling every other damn thing. Please enter me... Hope this week is better, although from what little you've said, it doesn't sound fixable.

And the mermaids? Can't trust 'em!

Michelle said...

Happy Blogiversary!! I am so sorry to hear that your mermaid is having issues. It also sucks that work is difficult right now too. I hope that it all turns around for you soon. I keep meaning to have a giveaway on my blog too...so thanks for reminding me!

doris said...

It's a real pain in the ass that work can wreck an otherwise good life. Good luck making it better, whatever that entails. The heart is adorable, so please include me in your drawing (or as Mike Meyers would say, drohring).

Diane said...

The work crap (at least THAT work crap) will be over soon. Keep your head up.

I hope the bad news on the mermaid is unpickable (probably not a word, but I'm sure you get my meaning), and not something that has to do with wayward liquid or scissors!


Please add me to your draw. Thanks!

Meredith said...

Hoping work gets better for you! Would love to win this beautiful heart! Thank you for the chance! merlawrence@aol.com
