I can now report that I'm finished. The painting went relatively fast considering the amount of stuff I was working around. But it was that stuff that made the job last well over a month. A freshly painted room stirs up the organizing side of me and so I did. And, before my next flurry of a project puts that stuff back on every available flat surface, I photographed it so I could remember that once upon a time...
One year ago today, I started this little blog o' mine. I pretty much just jumped in without really knowing where it would lead. One year later I can say that it was a good idea. I've met many new and interesting people, made friends and experienced things that I wouldn't have otherwise. And I've had a lot of FUN, thanks to all of you!
So, to celebrate these good things and to thank you for making it so, I'm going to have a drawing next Saturday, January 10th, for this embroidered dishtowel that I've whipped up for the occasion.
The embroidery patterns are ones from Sublime Stitching (I love their patterns) called Sushi Bar. I chose it for my blogoversary giveaway because of the Lucky Cat...Meneki Neko, Japanese "beckoning cat". A Meneki Neko is said to bring in good luck and visitors by beckoning "Please come in. You are welcome!"
To enter your name in the drawing, just leave me a comment, on this post or any post, between now and next Saturday (1-10-09) at noon CST. All comments will be entered. Be sure there is a way for me to contact you if I should draw your name:)
Thanks for celebrating my one*year*of*blogging with me--you're the reason it's a celebration!
