Christmas - 200th Post Giveaway -- And the winner is...

A few days later than expected due to our 3 day power outage last weekend, but here we are with the 200th post of Hooked On Needles! What fun this has been sharing ideas, techniques, materials, gadgets, pictures, finished projects and friendship with so many wonderful people.

Recently my husband and I celebrated our 26th wedding anniversary, today is my 200th post, and in just a few short days the entire world will celebrate the joyful feast of Christmas. Many of you joined in my celebration of these occasions by entering my giveaway and now it is time to reveal the winner...

But first we must set the scene. It is another cold snowy day here. We got about 18 inches of snow yesterday along with some icing and it is still snowing. The roads are very treacherous and we live on the top of a hill, so we will be staying safe at home today. The kids are thrilled because that means a jammie day! Remember those days, when you could stay in your jammies all day and play and not have a care in the world?

I asked my son who is 5 years old if he would help me with my drawing and he took his responsibility very seriously! Here's how it went...

Christmas 2008 -- 200th post giveaway drawingI wrote down each entrant's name on one of my little Snoopy calendar pages and folded them all up and put them into a little Christmas gift bag.

Notice the paper that Bo's name is written on. I thought it was an interesting coincidence that it is the page for December 18th, which is our wedding anniversary! The picture is Snoopy dressed up as Santa. I think I'll tuck that into Bo's box of goodies so she can have another Santa to add to her collection!

Thank you to all who entered my giveaway and shared their "how we met" stories. I enjoyed reading them all. Now back to the Christmas preparations!

Happy Stitching!
