Egads it is time for a Giveaway!!

I always have such good intentions of posting, but time gets away from me, so again, my apologies for not checking in sooner, and especially for not visiting your blogs! I really miss reading all that you are up to! I hope to get to visit very soon! In the meantime, my summer has been a busy one! My father was very ill, and he was in and out of the hospital for the better part of six weeks, but fortunately, he is on the mend now! My mother is now experiencing some health issues, but you know, when you still have your parents with you, and they are well into their 80's, health issues are to be expected! A burden, but the blessing of having them still, far outweighs any inconvenience!

I really didn't mean to get into all of that, but thanks for giving me your 'ears'!

My precious granddaughter had her first birthday on July 2, 2010! And I want to have a giveaway to celebrate her first birthday! This is what I am offering, a Vera Bradley cosmetic bag, which if you didn't know already, makes a great 'pack and carry bag' for those stitching gadgets! I have stuffed it with silks, fabric, scissors and other sweets for stitchers! Here is a pic of the bag and it's contents:

And another angle:

And a pic of my beautiful, precious and happy granddaughter, Alexandra Catherine, that I affectionately call Allie Bug, on the morning of her birthday:

I have been stitching...not alot, but do have some things to share, and I will do that asap! I miss sharing my stitching with you all!

For the giveaway, please post to this thread, and if you are not already a follower, please follow! Also if you care to post about this giveaway on your personal blog, and that would be great, please leave two comments on this post, so it will be easier for me to 'count'! And do so no later then July 17, 2010! I will post the winner on July 18, 2010! Best of luck, I know you will enjoy the goodies!!

Until next time, I remain forever grateful for your posts!!

Love, Jan
