300th Post! And the Winner is...

Last June 3rd, my darling husband wrote a little paragraph as the first post on my brand new website that he spent quite a bit of time setting up for me. Almost every day since then, something has been posted here at Hooked On Needles, mostly having to do with some type of needlework project or other. I never thought it possible for me to find so many things to do and share and so many nice people to meet and get to know, and enjoy every minute of it. But here we are at #300.

My latest needlework kick is crocheting cotton dish/wash cloths, and I have even starting using them myself. Now I really understand what all the buzz is about! I love how they feel and how substantial they are compared to store bought cloths. They wash and dry so nicely too.

So to celebrate this, my 300th post, my favorite little helper guy Sean has picked the lucky person who will receive her choice of crocheted cotton goodies, either four cloths or two hotpads and two cloths. Here's how the drawing went...

300th Post Giveaway drawingEach name was written on the back of one of my little Snoopy calendar pages that I save and use for scrap paper. All the papers were folded and put into Gracie's little play food basket. She wanted to get in on the action too!

300th Post Giveaway drawingAnd this is the name written on the back of Linus and his crayons...Kerry! I have already emailed Kerry and am now waiting to hear back from her to find out what she prefers for her prize and what colors she would like. Kerry is from Queensland, Australia and has a blog called Forever Friday where she shares some of her quilting and her everyday life. Go say hi and see what she's been up to.

Happy Stitching!
