100th Post and Giveaway

Good morning to all my friends out there in blogland.

Back in November when I wrote my first post for this blog I had no idea of the adventure it would be. I have met so many wonderful people and developed friendships all over the world. It has been amazing! Thank you to all of you who have stopped by for a visit and a cup of tea.
Now here I am at my 100th post. So I am celebrating with a giveaway: this pillow that I just made (you saw it on the sofa the other day) and an English blue and white plate.

My husband will pick the winner on Monday night and I'll announce the winner Tuesday. You must leave a comment on this post to be eligible. Tell your friends and if they mention you told them then I'll add your name again.
Good luck!
Usually on Thursdays I say what I am thankful for. Today is my husband's birthday so I am thankful for him. What are you thankful for?

  5. Congrats on 100, the next 100 will probably just fly by. I am in a very thankful state lately. I was hit by a car and I lived and at some point I should be all healed. Someone was watching out for me that day.

Hi Rhondi, It's Thursday evening & I have been meaning to leave a comment all day long, but just now am getting to it!....First, thank you for your sweet comment about the photo of my grandson Andrew & I! I treasure that picture more than you can imagine! It somehow captures the "all-encompassing love" I have for my treasured first grandchild!....And so happy for you! 100 blog entries!!! I think I want to go back & read them all!....Here's to the next 100....So glad we met through this delightful blogging business!...Have a lovely evening!...Heidi :)P.S. And about your pillow & plate... I'm sure they both would be happy living at my house! :)

  34. What a gorgeous cushion, it would be quite at home here in my cottage I'm sure. I am thankful for the good health of my family, as sadly a good friend has just been diagnosed with terminal cancer.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Hmm at the moment I would say that I am thankful that I have a loving family and that we are all healthy, not wealthy! and wiser than we were this time last year. I am thankful that we have food to eat and a roof over our heads which I know we take for granted.
    Happy birthday to your husband - I am very thankful for my husband - he is working very hard at the moment but knows it will be worth it in 3 years time when he finally retires and can sit back and enjoy it all - especially his garden. Thank you for visiting my blog like you do - I read yours at least every other day as you always have such lovely pictures on it.

  50. Hi Rhondi,

    I love your home. I've visited many times and even showed my 80 year old mother your blue and white kitchen. She doesn't have a computer but she does have a blue and white kitchen with blue willow ware and she loved yours. I'm thankful for an 80 year old mother who has quilted as long as I can remember, (yes, she was handquilting a dresdan plate today) and she passed that love on to me. I'm thankful for my children and grandchildren and for finding quilting blogs a few months ago. You all truly do inspire me!

  52. I've only recently found your blog and so enjoy it and the beutiful pictures you sprinkle throughout it. I would like to be in the drawing for your beautiful plate and pillow to have in my home to remind me that there is another Christian wife, mother, and grandmother with grown children,3 grandchildren, and a husband of (almost) 44 years - just like me!

    Thank you for sharing your life with so many of us.:-)
