200th post and over 200 followers...time for a giveaway!

I have been remiss with my blog etiquette! 
I let my 1st blog-anniversary go by...
 then 200 followers came and went...
 so with my 200th post (did I really have that much to say?!?),
I decided to celebrate!
Remember this...

Would you like a signed copy?
Leave me a comment,
nothing more.
You must not be a non-reply commentor!  If you are, please leave me an email address where I can contact you.  Leave your comment by Sunday night at midnight and I will draw a number on Monday morning. 
A sneak peek at what is inside for the winner:
a few schoolhouse projects,
some adorable sewing needfuls, and
Abacus, the quilt I pieced for Renee.

Still having trouble leaving comments, even though I upgraded my browser.  So for those of you with your comment section attached to the bottom of your post, I am reading and enjoying your blogs, but am unable to leave comments.  I can leave comments on the blogs where the comment is on the side or separate...wierd.

  11. Congratulations, 200 post and I see 232 Followers, that is wonderful. When I started my blog, my hubby overheard me say to someone "it gives me a voice." Stunned he said "I didn't know you didn't have a voice." I think we all have a lot to say, you keep talking and I will keep reading. Congraulations again!

    I still have trouble leaving comments on blogs, when I have checked the box to "stay signed in". So, I do not check that and have to sign in every time I want to read my favorite blogs. It is a pain.

  30. I was intrigued by the title of your blog (I was wasting time clicking on "next blog" and seeing what came up!) and recognise that it is what I feel about my ideas for quilts!
