I hardly ever look at how many posts I have done but noticed that it was getting close to the 300 mark and today this is it. To honor this I am having a giveaway. It is a sewing needlebook that you hang around your neck while sewing. It includes a small pair of scizzors, package of embroidery needles and a package of long pearlized pins. I had purchased one from Lilla in Hawaii and liked it so well that I made 2. One for my sister in Barrie, Ontario and this one for the giveaway. It may not be as good as Lillas but didn't turn out too bad.

To win this you will have to be a follower and leave a comment before Fri. the 24th. To get another chance please advertise this on your blog and you will get 2 chances. Let me know if you do.

Harv is doing fine and had a chemical heart stress test this morning and we will get results tomorrow. They wanted to do this as a precaution after the little problem in the hospital - even though everything there turned out negative. Hope this will be a good report also. Good luck on the giveaway.

First of all, I’m so glad you and Harv are both doing well. BTW, what were the results of your biopsy? I don’t believe you ever did say..... Anyway, congratulations on your 300th post. I hope you get lots of entries and followers (pls do not enter me; I need more stuff like I need a 5th head, LOL). Take care and I’ll be seeing you in less than 2 weeks! Hugs, Cathy
Your blocks are gorgeous.... I want some of your ideas to rub off on me, please!!!

Congrats. on 300 posts, Freda! That is a lovely giveaway, and I would be very happy to be included in the draw - thank you!
Your blocks are so beautiful; I haven't done any CQ work for ages, and seeing yours here makes me want to go and play with my fabrics!
I felt so sorry for you and Harv when I read the previous post about all those tests. It is so stressful, Ken always says he feels like a human guinea pig after blood and heart tests.

I got here through Gerry K.'s blog where she showed your use of one of her handpainted buttons. Please enter me in your lovely giveaway and I'm looking forward to your tree skirt pics. I'm only at making Christmas stockings for everyone and will get to the skirts after that so will be gathering ideas. - Cathy L
