An anniversary!

This was a pre-scheduled post to pop up while I am at the retreat tonight!
A couple of more pre-scheduled posts to come while I am gone...
We shall see if this does work! 8-)

One Year Anniversary
AND
400th Post


Oh my goodness! In celebrating Lilly's one year anniversary and 100th post, I realized that it IS my one year anniversary today AND I have my 400th post coming up very soon! Yikes, I've been a blabber mouth! 8-)

*** Happy Anniversary to Me! ***
lol! 8-)


So, it is high time I do another giveaway, don't you think? 8-)

The prize to be won in this draw is an X-Bag.
That's right, I will be making another X-Bag!
I may make one during the retreat, or maybe I will wait and take a color order from the winner... We shall see... 8-)
Photos of the X-Bag are in my sidebar of finished projects...

I like the way that Lilly did her giveaway, so I am going to follow her lead of only involving the lovely ladies that continue to visit and comment on my blog on a regular bases,
as I have loved getting to know all of you and value all of your comments... (blog or no blog friends) 8-)

Here is the giveaway plan...
I have recorded all of you who have commented, and how many comments you have made, starting from Wednesday the 1st, during the month of April.
(all in the draw right now)

I do not want my giveaway advertised for all of blog-land, but in order to get your name in the hat a couple more times before the draw, all you need to do is leave a comment on each of my following posts, including this one... 8-)
AND...
If you are a reg commenter, but not on my followers list, I will give you an extra chance in the hat to win if you become a follower. I mean, you might as well if you visit me often anyways. Right!?! 8-)
I have 49 wonderful "Followers" right now... 8-)

I will use a Random Number Generator to pick the winner for me,
and I will announce the winner on my 400th post,
which should be around next Thursday/Friday...
Sounds fair and easy enough, right? 8-)

Good luck to all of you! 8-)

Now, while I am enjoying a 4 day retreat of no cooking or cleaning, and just sewing, eating, and laughs, I hope you all have a good weekend.
If not too tired I will catch up with all of you when I am back on Monday night...
or Tuesday morning... 8-)

I'm here...waving my hand and commenting and saying, "PICK ME!!!" I did my last giveaway like this......limited to those who were my regular blog visitors and I intend to do them the same way in the future...seems only fair to do it that way. Hope you are enjoying your retreat weekend and congrats on the anniversary of your blog!!!

Brenda said...

I was woundering if it would work if you wanted a post to 'post' on a future date... good to know it works!! I really hope you are having great weather for your retreat, so when you go outside, you'll have sunshine!!! All the best Myra!!

Lilly said...

You have been a very busy lady - unfortunately I don't get by to read the blogs as often as I used to and I had some catching up to do this morning. Happy almost 400th post!

dot said...

WOW!! 400 posts, that is amazing. I am a frequent reader but haven't figured out the follower thing yet. I have google reader updater so I read each time there is a new post. I don't comment much but read all the time. I enjoy your blog and look forward to many many more posts.

Finn said...

Hey, congratulations a bit early *VBS*
It's sooooo good that someone else is a yabber-wak! I was almost embarasses that at my first give away, I had nearly reached the 1,000 point. I went back and deleted some and have slowed down abit over the last couple of years. I've got #4 coming up this summer...wahoooo!
Hope the retreat is wonderful and you get lots done. Hugs, Finn

Michelle said...

Hi Myra,

I hope you are a having a good weekend at your retreat. I am having a great weekend so far. I attended a quilt show today and saw so many beautiful quilts.

Guðrún said...

You are very technical posting while on a retreat. I don´t know about this "Follower" thing! Well maybe I should try and see what happens.

Narelle said...

Congratulations!
Wow, I'm first to comment, does that give me a bonus! I've also added myself as a follower although you've been on my bloglines for ages.
Enjoy the retreat.

Annemiek said...

Happy happy anniverseray!400 post in one year IS a lot. Finding something to chat about isn't as hard for you as it is for me. Best thing is that you're never boring so keep up the good work!!

Rosaline said...

Oh yes, I want to win the x-bag. Now all I have to do is figure out how to get on the "Followers List".
