MY 100th POST and a GIVEAWAY !!!

Give-away now closed.


Hard to believe, but it's true. According to my little stats counter, this is my 100th post.  When I started this blog, I remember seeing people on other blogs celebrating their own milestones and wondering, "Will I ever get there"?
It certainly has gone by fast, and has been loads of fun!  I believe it's proper blog "etiquette" to host a give-away on such an occasion, so last Thursday I whipped up this little mug rug while thinking about YOU.


Also I have 2 charm packs, and some chocolate from Purdy's. If you are from Canada, you know all about Purdy's chocolate.


Soooooo, wanna sip tea, eat chocolate, and cut into some charm squares?  Just leave me a comment on this post.
 I will leave it open for a few days and then get my hubby to do the random generator thingy to choose a winner.
Thank-you for all the encouragement over the past year and a half : )

Congratulations on the big "100"!
I love coming here every day or two, just to see what you've been up to, and I especially love the hexie project and the Farmer's Wife.
I made a few mug-rugs for gifts at Christmas, but forgot to save one for me! (They weren't as pretty as yours either...). And finally, I've lived in Canada for the past 49 years, and I DON'T KNOW PURDY'S CHOCOLATE!!! Isn't that shameful!? Maybe I'll have a chance to find out how wonderful it is! Congrats to whoever the winner is!
