400th post... how about a giveaway?

Who knew when I started this little blog four years ago that 400 posts later I'd still be at it? Certainly not me! And who knew that a simple little accounting of my crafty adventures would lead me to so many wonderful friendships all around the world? This blogging community brings me so much joy! So, in celebration of my 400th post I decided to do a little giveaway!

Today I made another wristlet for someone special (shhhh it's a secret!) and before I knew it, I had made a second one (purely by accident mind you!). Maybe it will be on it's way to you?
 How about I toss in a copy of my Town Square Bag pattern? Would you like that? Go ahead, twist my arm...
 All you have to do is leave me a comment here on this post.... maybe let me know what you're making right now? Or, what you plan to make next? Or anything at all... I don't want to make you work too hard! Where's the fun in that? If you're a follower of my blog (or become one) leave a second comment for another chance. I'll leave the comments open until Friday then I'll choose a winner.

Thanks for being here! You make my day.

Well I never manage to win one of your items in a swap so maybe I will here. I love the wristlets.

Right now I am working on 'the quilt that won't let me sleep'. It's a variation of what we learned in Marti and Me in April. Next, I will be making a small table topper for a wedding gift and then a western themed baby blanket.

I love the wristlet - thanks for making two!

This wristleg is cute! I just finished up my third version of the Ice Cream Dress, but I still have one more smaller sized one to make. I'm hoping to trace the pattern tonight. After I make that last dress, then I'm going to start on a quilt for my husband as a gift for his birthday (in August)

The wristlet is lovely. Right now, I am working on little gifts to take to Hungary for my friends there. My hubby and I take a work team to the Word Of Life Bible Camp every year to teach English. The things have to be small because we now only get one piece of luggage. I am also trying to make some things for my daughter.
