A giveaway!!

     I finally did it.  I reached a hundred followers, yay me!!  (I didn't think I was ever gonna get there, lol.  I was at ninety nine for days and days.)  Anyways, now that I am, I am having a giveaway!!!  It's gonna be winner's choice.  You can have any HAED chart you want (two if they're cheap) or a $20 gc to 123stitch.com.  I'm opening this giveaway to everyone here and on my Multiply site (I have to give them a chance too!!) and I will pick a winner next Sunday (I don't know what the date will be, as I don't have my calendar right here.  But eight days from now, ladies and gents) or actually, I'll write down all the entries and have YD pick the winner as she loves to play with the little slips of paper!!  I wish you all good luck!!
     Also, I got some stitching time tonight on Midnight Hunting.  For some reason, it's not going as quickly as Astral Lion and Bubbles did.   I got in about twenty five hundred stitches on Bubbles, and about two thousand on Astral Lion in each of their respective two week periods.  I think I've got about two hundred and fifty stitches in on MH.  So I really need to get some more stitching time in.  Thanks to Julie and Aly and Bob, Peggy, Val, and Anita tonight.  I was in chat at 2muchXS (one of my Yahoo groups) and talking to Julie and Aly while I was stitching.  (And I talked to my mom on the phone for about fifteen minutes too.)  I seem to get lots done when I multitask, and the same ran true tonight!!!  Anyways, I'll make an effort to get more stitching time tomorrow!!!  Hope you're all having a good night!!!!!

Congrats on having 100 followers Julie. And what a great give away!! Please count me in.
Multitasking with stitching...I bow my head. When I would try that things would go SO wrong. I'm terrible at multitasking sadly

mdgtjulie said...

Thanks Wendy. I'm glad you're enjoying it. I love to blog and read others' blogs!! Thanks Gabi. My brain likes to multitask, and I do better at stitching when I do. If I'm not doing something else, I usually have to frog!!! Good luck to both of you!!

Congrats on 100 followers - more now, as I've found you :) :) More likely to keep up here than Multiply!

Awww, that's really generous, congrats on your followers. Can I enter please?

Rachel said...

Congrats on reaching 100 followers!! I see I did too, but I am not sure when, lol! I'd love to enter your contest! It would be nice to have another of the 7 deadly sins charts, hehe. (I am trying to talk my family into getting them for me for my birthday, but they think I have too much stash as it is, lol! Jeesh, they just don't get it, haha)

I admire you for multitasking, that is something I am just not coordinated enough to do. I can not talk to anyone while stitching, especially on the phone, I totally blank on the conversation to concentrate on my stitching, lol. So, I have to put the stitching down.

Penny said...

Congrats Julie its great that you have made it over 100 now. Couldn't happen to a nicer person. Pet YD for me too.
Consider me entered in your give away please. Have a great weekend.

Margaret said...

Congratulations on the 100 followers! A milestone for sure! Thank you for the giveaway too! I don't know how anyone stitches HAED pieces. They're sooooo amazing!

Nicola said...

Congrats on reaching your milestone 100! I think I make 105now ;-) Count me in for your giveaway! Watch out on my blog for mine! xx

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

I think it's my fault you took so long to get to 100! I found your blog when Blogger was playing up and couldn't officially "Follow" so I just stuck it in my "favourites" and found it like that.
I now make it number 106 so please could I be in the lovely giveaway!

Congrats on 100 followers. I would love to be included in your wonderful giveaway.

mdgtjulie said...

Thanks Viv, glad you found me!! Thanks Debbie, and I sure will!! Thanks Demeter, and sure you can. Looks like I'm gonna have quite a few names in the bowl! Thanks Rachel. And grats to you too. I so know that feeling, my mom and I have that same discussion every time I buy a new chart and tell her about it. "But you don't NEED it..." I have a friend who's that way. We got together to start our Story Keeper SAL, and Julie kept having to frog. She's a beader too, and she can't bead well while talking either, lol. Thanks Penny. I'll make sure to put your name in the bowl!! Thanks Bec. It IS a nice feeling!! LOL, thanks Margaret. As long as you have lots of patience for the confetti, they're easy! Just time consuming. Thanks Nicola, I'll keep an eye on your blog too!! LOL, I understand that Jo. When blogger is messing about, and you can't follow, there is almost always a follow button up at the very top of the screen, to the left. It usually works when the other one isn't there!! Nope, Rita, go right ahead. And good luck!! Thanks Janine. And at one point, I had thirteen followers too. The more you read an comment and follow, the more followers you have!! Thanks Blu, and I sure will!! Thanks Jennifer. I will include you. And I'll be keeping an eye out on your blog!! Thanks Denise, it's lovely to get comments on my work. I'll most definitely count you in!! Thanks Nataly, and I'll throw your name in the bowl too!!

Ewa said...
