First Fifty! (Plus Giveaway)

Wow, FIFTY followers!  Thank you soooooo much for believing in me enough to befriend my new, little blog.  Ever since we've started, we've explored Ren Faire Wear, low-sugar cooking, Anthro knock-offs, first dress forms, first dresses, upycles, remakes, and more, and I appreciate you being there with me every step of the way.

Especially through some of the darker, sadder parts, like crafter's block and listening to me talk about my long, ongoing fight with breast cancer.  Thank you, all.

So one of the new things I have learned is how to knit!  I can still only do squares and rectangles, but I have gotten pretty good at patterns, and am currently knitting cables.  I think I am going to go with my original plan, and knit a bunch of squares with different textures, patterns and colors, then sew them together to make an afghan.  A sampler, of sorts.

So for a giveaway, I am giving this knitted pocketbook, made by me!

To Win:

Just leave a nice comment, either about me or my blog!  I want you to be my Google Friends because you like my blog, so following isn't necessary for this giveaway.

for an extra entry:

Mention this contest on your blog, then come back and tell me, and you get another entry.  If you don't have a blog, or want another entry, mention this contest on Facebook (and come back to tell me about it).

This Giveaway ends Tuesday the 19th.

So that's it!  Once again, THANK YOU to my first, special 50.

Scrabble, thinking fondly of all of her wonderful Google Friends....
