Belated Blogiversary

As I've said in previous posts, I've gotten wayyy behind on everything!

Did you know that a month ago today would of been my blogiversary? I have now been actively blogging for SIX YEARS NOW! Wow, who would of thought I'd still be posting and have over 100 followers six years later? Thanks for hanging in with me for so many years!
I'm not organized enough to have a wonderful blogiversary prize all planned and photographed here. I will stitch something special for the winner and probably throw some stitching goodies in the package too!
To enter my blogiversary draw you're not going to have to jump through hoops, you're not going to have to advertise my blog on your blog (I hate it when that's a requirement to enter a draw on a blog... a personal pet peeve of mine, if a blog is good, it'll get found, and read. You shouldn't have to troll for readers), put a banner anywhere or anything like that. You have one week to leave a comment on this entry (Sunday October 18th), if you don't have an e-mail address on your blogger profile, or your not a blogger user please leave an e-mail address in your comment so I can reach you.
Todd and I had a nice, not so busy Saturday! I went out for a run... I should go out again today its sunny, and not raining (for a change). Todd took me out for breakfast, and I've been stitching and napping (my two favourite activities). I've been working away on my Monogram project and I've got two more for you, and a motif. The motifs I'm going to make individual ornaments with, I'm not backing the monograms with them because that would just make this monogram project massive! I've been using those little scraps of fabric you collect over time to stitch these up and sometimes there's a little piece big enough for just a motif, so instead of throwing out the piece of fabric or setting aside a tiny piece I've been doing the odd motif.

Happy blogiversary! Since I've been reading your blog you've inspired me to go back to Weight Watchers and lose the weight I've regained over the years. I also love reading about your stitching and have decided to stitched PL after seeing your progress on it. Best wishes.
