500th Post Giveaway!

This giveaway is now closed. Thanks to all who entered! Click HERE to see who the five lucky winners are.

I can't imagine how my 500th post could be coming up so quickly, but it's true! Number 500 will be sometime this week and I think that calls for just a little celebration.

I'd like to offer some items that I have made as small prizes to 5 people...

500th Post Giveaway prizesA few years ago I was given a whole boatload of discontinued upholstery fabric samples from a friend who worked at a local furniture store. With them I made pillows and tote bags of all sizes. This little one on the right side of the picture was made with one of those long skinny samples, a few grommets and some pretty braided cord. Included with that will be one of my crocheted floor duster covers.

The next prize will be the little pink and green friendship bag that I did not give away in the friendship bag swap, along with the pink and white crocheted floor duster cover.

The other three prizes will be a crocheted floor duster cover.

I may throw in some other little goodies in each package as well.

So what do you have to do to be in the running for one of these prizes? Nothing too hard, I promise! Just leave a comment here on this post with some feedback, advice, idea or constructive criticism about my website. Be open and honest - I can take it! I will draw 5 winners and announce them on my 500th published post, whenever that happens to be.

Please make sure you include an email address in your comment if you choose to comment anonymously. If I can't contact you with an email address, your entry will not be in the drawing.

Thanks to all my regular readers and all those who comment on a regular basis. I appreciate so much that you take the time to leave a few kind words or ask a question or share a thought, and I am so grateful for all the friends I have made through this creative outlet I call Hooked On Needles.

Now to get busy thinking up ideas for the next 500 posts!

Happy Stitching!

  • I couldn't believe how many posts I've done to date when I looked the other day. They add up don't they!
    I think your blog is just fine, maybe you could put some pics down the side of some of your favourite past projects. Dibs on the cute little pink and green bag if I get lucky. Happy 500th. Julie xx

  • Oh my 500. I think I am coming up on 100 but am going to wait for my 1 year to have another giveaway. I don't know what I would suggest you do differently because I need to do something more with my own blog. Maybe some pics to dress it up a bit. But I think we check out what you are showing on your post which is the idea right?

  • I'm fairly new to your blog, so I haven't read all 500 posts (yet), but I'm working my way through. My blog is pretty new, and I have a ways to go to reach my 100th post!
    I wish I had a constructive comment for you, but I think your blog looks great. Maybe I'd see how a fancier font looks on the header? Something that reflects your personal style?
    That's all I've got!

  • 500.. holy cow! it does fly by doesn't it. You do post fairly regularly though, which is nice. I was curious about whether or not you did all the project on your 2009 project list or not?

  • Congratulations on 500 posts! I like very much the tutorials you have on your blog. I started to follow your blog when I was your Stitcher's Angel and I like it very much. I will love to join your give away. Tomorrow I will post about a 2 years blog-give away on my blog so welcome to come!

  • WOW!!! I love you site. I would like to see more knitting, since I'm afraid of my sewing machine! I love the pink bag!

  • Congrats on reaching 500 posts!!! I think I'm getting close now, too...time DOES fly. I like your tutorials and I think the one thing I'd want to change (but I don't think you have any control over that) is I'd prefer to see a photo right after the date of your post instead of those ads....but I'm guessing when you participate in the blog ads program, you don't get to decide where the ads are placed on your blog. Keep on blogging!!!

  • I like the fact that you use a background that doesn't make my eyes hurt when I try to read your blog. :)

  • Hello Mary Grace, congratulations on your 500th post....a milestone...I enjoy your blog just as it is.....Hugs Lyn

  • Hi Mary Grace, I almost forgot to post here! I read your blog through my reader so I don't often "visit" but I love reading about what craft work you are doing. I really must sit down with your videos one day and pick up my crochet hook again. Thanks for everything you do here.

  • Congrats on your 500th post! I also love your tutorials, but have to agree with disliking the ads right at the top. Is there a way to put them at the end of the post or on a sidebar?

  • Congratulations on 500 posts!

    I like that the handy links are in the top right corner and that I don't have to scroll to the bottom or look for them in some strange obscure place!
