Happy 200th Post and a Giveaway!!! (Well, actually 213th, but you get my drift!)

Yes, this is finally the Giveaway post! I have decided to give away my herb garden stitchery drawstring bag. So, if you would like to have this bag at your house please leave a comment and I will draw someone's name next Sunday. It is lined with the green and white spot and the back of the bag is pieced with little squares just like the top of the front. The stitchery is a Bronwyn Hayes design. Making this bag was very fun. Especially because I was busy avoiding the bag swap bag. That's right! Didn't have time on the weekend to finish that one, but managed to make this entire bag instead.

I have really enjoyed this blog of mine. Over the past 212 posts I have meet so many wonderful people and seen so many great ideas. Even after all this time I am still finding 'new' blogs and 'meeting' new people. When I started blogging I had no idea how to do it (thank you Mrs 24 who taught me everything I know), and was definitely in the creating doldrums. Having this blog (and reading other blogs) has inspired me to create so many more things than I would have otherwise. It has broadened my horizons. I started it in an effort to find my happy place and this little corner of the internet is it! I plan to keep blogging forever (or as long as it is fun!) and you should all stick around for another 87 posts to enter my 300th post giveaway! Good luck!
