200th post extravaganza

Well okay, maybe its not an extravaganza, but this is my 200th post!! I'm much slower than a lot of bloggers, it took me over 2 years to get to 200 posts, but here I am.
I've had so much fun since I've started blogging that I can't even begin to tell you all about it. But I think that any of you that have been blogging for a while know what I mean.

Okay, so I'm going to do a giveaway in celebration of my 200th post. But I don't know what the prize will be just yet. So it will be a surprise giveaway. Comment here, and take your chances. Someone will win something. Maybe MORE than one someone will win. We'll just have to wait and see!

In other news, today in the mail I received a gorgeous pincushion from Australia. It was made by Nicole. My camera is still packed in my luggage, so I don't have a picture yet. I'll do it tomorrow for sure, after I get some sleep, unpack and slog thru the piles of laundry and mail that await me. Did you notice that I managed to open the squishy package the minute I walked in the door today, but NOT the piles of bills?? LOL! Do come back to see it, it is so pretty and very clever. Never mind how envious I am of the lovely applique. Thank you so much, Nicole. More on this tomorrow...

I have also signed up for the Stitcher's Angels Swap on Helen's blog. That looks like it will be lots of fun!

If you are interested in swapping a bag, check out this new swap that Linda has just announced.

Please leave a comment, and maybe I'll pick your name as a winner in this drawing!!

Well done you! 200 posts, that's great. As you say, it's great fun and horribly addictive and time-consuming. I've signed up to both of those swaps, they look good fun.

Hi Tracey, I'm glad you liked the pincushion ( i hope it traveled ok ).
I felt a bit of a dope when i realised i hadn't included a card.
Congratulations on reaching 200 posts. I think i'll get there, maybe, in the year 2011.
