Grow Your Blog Day and Giveaway


Today is Grow Your Blog!!! day hosted by Vicki at 2 Bags Full.  Visit Vicki's blog here and see the list of bloggers participating.  Many are new to blogging and would appreciate a visit and you are sure to "meet" some interesting and talented people.
I am late at getting my post up.  I spent the day at a Sit and Sew sponsored by Melanie of Fabric Chicks in Coupeville, WA yesterday and had a wonderful time but forgot to complete my post.  I have been blogging since March of 2010.  It has been a great adventure and I have met many wonderful people all over the world through blogging. 

Take a look around and you will learn more about me.  Briefly, I am the mother of six and grandmother to 16.  My husband is a pastor and I work full time for our local library system.  I have always been a lover of books and my job keeps me working with them five days a week.  I love to sew, garden, decorate, crochet, embroider, craft, spending time with family and friends, I could keep going.  In doing all of the things I love I want to put the Lord's will for my life first.

The blogging world has been a blessing to me and I in turn hope to bless someone else.

This is the pincushion I am giving away, just leave a comment if you want to have a chance to win.  

Hand embroidered on one side.


Pieced together on the other side.


 Giveaway ends February 14th.  I will announce the winner on the 15th.

    I'm glad to know you and your blog! I come from Vocky's party ... it's great to know people so far away from me - I live in the north of Italy - and discover many wonderful worlds, and often with very similar interests.

  19. Your pin cushion is so pretty! It gives me all kinds of ideas using vintage linens! I haven't been up to blogging much in the last 6 months. I do miss it but time is hard to come by with family things & working full time. Bloggers are special people & you are one of them!
    Blessings,
    Cindy

  24. Wow I love my visit. Didn't realize that there is so much going on in cyber world. Forgive me for coming to the party at the last minute, But 600 blog reading was a little tasking. I wanted to read and get to know the girls so I did read everyone's bio. Your my 518 blog and 24 hours left to go. If you like come visit My site http://overboardcreations.blogspot.com/and contact info is http://ovr_brd@yahoo.com I believe inspiration comes from all facets of life even knowing the great people out there with wisdom and knowledge the do's and don'ts and even the wonders of life from a personal point of view. I liked you following you on goggle connect and Bloglovin you. hope to see you in the cyber neighborhood I am new to blogging so I don't have a lot posted because I got side tract with GYB party. Kind of felt it was important to have some one read my silly chatter. I can't remember a time I didn't dabble in something creative. I tried a little of everything. But, my new love these days is Card making I just love it.
    Oh thanks for letting me enter your give away.
