100th post GIVE~AWAY ~ ~ ~

Okay, I'm a few posts late. This was meant to be for my 100th post.

I still have not come up with those wonderful pictures...

or the witty repartee,

but I have managed to hook this little mat for a give~away.

It's not as little as I thought it was going to be.

I am forgetting that hooking with an 8.5 and a 9.5 cut,

things tend to be a bit larger.

This mat is about 12 3/4" x 13 3/4" in diameter out of round.

The background is a wonderful as-is wool

and the heart and hit-and-miss border are an assortment

of many different shades of reds and pinks.
{{I will bind it before I send it to you...honest! }}

And now the fine print.....

You must leave a comment on this post...

OR if you are having trouble leaving me a comment,

send me an email ~

Please put "give~away" in the subject line

so I won't miss it.

If you don't have a blog, be sure to leave me an email address.

You don't need to be a follower ~ ~ ~

but I would appreciate it if you were ;-)

Feel free to post this on your blog...

but only one entry per person.

Please, only residents of the United States and Canada

due to the cost of shipping.

Oh, by the way.....

this will come complete with a few pug hairs.

(The downside of loving a pug!)

I will draw a winner on Saturday the 6th at 5 pm.

Thank you for stopping by.

Pug hugs :)

  26. My Gram was a 'hooker'. Unfortunately, after she passed, her daughter's sold or trashed all of her 'old junk'. They were of the generation that didn't appreciate the past esp. since they were raised poor. Wanted all bright, new and shiny! I was too young to inherit, and my Dad didn't care about 'girlie' things! Wish I had been older- I would have it all now, but c'est la vie!

    We DID have a pug, though. Her name was Perky and she was my Mom's best buddy even though Mom wasn't a dog lover--isn't that the way sometimes? LOL!

    I would love to be entered into your drawing...I love that beautiful mat(pug hair more than welcome)


  27. Please enter me in your giveaway. I would be so happy to win. ~Dan~
