Lost and FOUND, and a 200th post giveaway! 8-)

Today I sat down at my sewing table and while setting up my Pfaffy after yesterday's outing to Wonky Bits, I thought to myself... again... "where, since our move, could those ceramic tiles be?" So, sitting there I looked around my sewing room, wondering, and then spotted a box I had not checked in. Guess what I found right on the top of all that was in there? My Ceramic Tiles!!! Oh happy day! 8-)So, now that I have found them, today I will make a pincushion/thread catcher, and for those that were interested, tomorrow I will post a tutorial of the making... 8-)

I have also noticed that this is my 191st post, so, since I missed my 100th post, I will be hosting a 200th post giveaway, in which this pincushion/thread catcher will be a part of! What else will be a part of this giveaway, is anyone's guess... 8-)
If you comment on THIS post, I will enter your name once.
If you put this giveaway logo in a post on your blog with a link to mine, and let me know that you have done so, you will have earned yourself an extra 3 chances to win.

I will have the draw on Sunday, October 5th,
around 9:00PM CDT, and post the winner that night. (I have added a clock to my sidebar for you to refer to.)
Remember, if you are an anonymous commenter, I don't have access to notify you... so please email me with your info.
Good luck all! 8-)

Oh, put my name in for the drawing! Wow! 200 posts coming up. That is a lot. I am sure you have made lots of blogging friends.
I never thought about what was used for the weight on those bags with the pincushion. Tiles are a great idea.

I have spent this week looking for things that were put away in a 'safe place'. Found a pattern by accident two days later. Now it's in another 'safe place'.

I'd love to be in your draw and have added your link in my post.

Hi Myra,
Have just come from my blog and have added you as a link but couldn't work out how to put the little advert thing you made in with the wording. Sorry, the wonders of modern science are sometimes above me! Anyways, please include me in the draw, have been meaning to make myself a thread catcher for ages, so if I'm not lucky enough to win, will have to drop by and check out the tutorial more closely. Thanks!!

Congratulations on your upcoming 200th post. I want to make one of the thread catchers using the tile.If it falls on the ceramic tile floor will it break the floor or the other tile?
