Today is the Three Year Anniversary of Needle ‘n Thread! Three years seems like a long time ago, doesn’t it? But I don’t feel like I’ve been doing this for three years…. Anyway, how about we do something SPECIAL for the day?
First, I’m going to gush. Bear with it! (You can always scroll to the end if you think I’m going Overboard!) I get so many kind e-mails and comments from readers who are always expressing their gratitude for my website, but do you know how much that is reciprocated on my part? I have, I think, the Best Bunch of Blog-Reading People in the Whole Blog Universe, right here on Needle ‘n Thread. I’m sure there are bigger and better blogs out there, but I can’t imagine that they have as much fun, or learn as much, or get such enjoyment from their readers as I do from you all. I just love keeping this blog up, and I love doing it, because of you, the audience.
It’s a weird thing, you know. When I first started this website, I had no idea what kind of interest it would evoke, and it was a tentative, shaky start, as I had never done anything quite like blogging before.
I’m happy with the way it has grown, and I love the constant challenge of keeping up with it and trying to focus and fine-tune it. I love the possibilities my blog is always presenting to me – I think I’m a better embroiderer because of my website. I try harder and I try things I wouldn’t necessarily ever try, if it weren’t for the website. And that keeps my needlework life pretty exciting.
And… I only do all that because I have a great audience!
So, to celebrate – oh, let’s – let’s have a give-away! Let’s have a 3-person give-away!
But, this is the hitch! I’m leaving Thursday, so it has to be a quick give-away. Besides, instead of having it published all over the web, where droppers-by jump in and sign up and we never hear from them again, I’d rather keep it among us – a quiet, closer-knit give-away. The only way to do that, methinks, is to make it a quick turn-around on the drawing…
So, with that in mind, three lucky readers will be drawn for this year’s anniversary give-away, and I am going to send you a selection of nice threads, some thread rings and accessories, some embellishments, and whatever other neat things pop into my head. And I’d show you a picture of the goods, but… drat… I left my camera at my sister’s house and won’t be getting it until late Monday or early Tuesday (I’m typing this on Sunday!). Tuesday, if I can, I’ll post a picture. Anyway, the point is to get the give-away started, and you’ll just have to trust me on the loot!
My Great Three Year Anniversary Give-away ends on Wednesday morning, June 16th, at 5:00 am, at which time I will announce the winners. If I hear from the winners before the end of the day Wednesday, I can get the packages in the mail before I leave for vacation on Thursday morning. If not, they’ll be mailed as soon as I get back!
