Milestone Post

Well ladies, I have made it to 300 posts! I never imagined blogging would be so much fun, but I have loved doing it and meeting so many wonderful people. So, I have decided to have a give-a-way and this is what it will be:


The name of this fat quarter stack is "Summer Basket of Flowers" by Terry Thompson. All you have to do is leave me a comment and the winner will be announced a week from today on August 14th. There will be a second drawing also just because my birthday is next week. Have a great week and "Happy Birthday to me!!
