Hello everyone! I have some very exciting news to share with you! My visitor counter is getting very close to 50,000! Woo Hoo! I have only been blogging for shortly over a year so I think this is cause for celebration, don't you?
You see, when I first started this blog I was so scared that no one would ever come and visit me. I was so surprised when I actually got a few comments on my first blog post! I was thrilled...ecstactic, actually! Really! As time has gone on I have found fabulous friendships, won giveaways, and learned a lot from so many of you! I want to give back to the blogging community! So, I've made a little something special just for this giveaway!
I made a button just for the big celebration!
this is not the button...it's just a picture of it.
The REAL button is on my sidebar!)
Let me show you what I have in store
for the lucky winner of my giveaway!
It's the book called "Learn to Tat" by Janette Baker
it comes with a free DVD that shows you how to tat!
If you already know how to tat, even some
experienced tatters have enjoyed making the
patterns out of this book. Besides, you could give
this book to someone who wanted to learn or
use it as a resource for them!
To go along with the book I'm tossing
in a faux tortoise shell (plastic) post-style
tatting shuttle and 10 yards-ish of size 10
Manuela brand green variegated thread!
This is everything you need to get you started
on your journey to learn how to tat!
I'll also give the winner this tatted heart.
It's from a Vintage "Workbasket Magazine"
tatting pattern. I tatted it myself about 16 years ago.
