100th Post Celebration!!



Celebrate Good Times, Come on!!  Everyone sing along  LOL!  Celebrate Good Times,.........

My goodness, I have had such fun the past 99 posts; and, I can't hardly believe that my 100th post, according to the blog counter, will be this one!  That's so exciting; I have met some wonderful people here, shared lots of laughs and been inspired by all the creativity you have; and that is definitely a reason to celebrate :)  So, today, we will be having
CAKE!!! Decadent Chocolate with lots of calories and sugar and yumminess! There's lots...plenty for second maybe third helpings LOL! We will have 
BALLOONS!!  Of course, we won't be looking like these lovely ladies after we eat all that cake but we have all winter to get back in shape again LOL!  I really love that pink swimsuit :)  Pink is a lighter version of Red ;) afterall!  We will have 
FIREWORKS!  I LOVE fireworks!  And of course, we must have a giveaway of gifts! :)  Just for you, I have gathered a few of my favorite things for this giveaway; and, because I want to spread the fun around a little, there are 3 gifts being offered.  
How about one of my newly made pincushions?  It is made from wool applique on a background of flannel Woolies.  Didn't it turn out sweet!
OR, this wonderful quilt book, which has lots of interesting reading, many patterns that are absolutely drop dead gorgeous!
OR, two half yards and two FQ's of yummy fabric to add to your stash!

How can YOU win one of these gifts?  Two simple things:

1. Only my followers can enter in this 100th Post Celebration. So, if you are a follower, leave me a comment.  If you're not a follower, well get yourself signed on up and leave me a comment too!

 Plus, for a second entry:

2. You must blog about this 100th Post Celebration! Leave me a comment saying you did so.
All comments for entering the Celebration giveaway must be made on THIS post :)
Celebration Giveaway Deadline: Sunday, Sept.19/10, 9 pm Atlantic time.

So, I'll go put the coffee and tea on, set out the cake, gather up the balloons, prepare the fireworks and wait for y'all to come on over! I've got room for everyone LOL!  Oh, I can hardly wait! Hee Hee! Have a great day!

THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED!

Happy 100th post! It's not good to be first in a giveaway but let me wish you happy 100th. lol Thanks for inspiring us.

Julie in the Barn said...

Congrats, Shelley! Happy blogoversary. I don't do the follow thing because my 'putter gets all bogged down. I prefer to list all my fav blogs on my sidebar and then spend zillions of hours reading all the new posts every morning. So I guess I'm not eligible to win any of your awesome gifts. But I love you none the less and will keep your wonderful blog on my list of favorites.

Diane H said...

Congratulations! That's such an adorable little pin cushion - thanks so much for a chance in your giveaway. Looking forward to the next 100 posts.

Mary Lou Casada said...

Shelley, Awesome milestone!!! I've been doing about 2 posts a week, so at that rate it'll take me a year to get where you are! LOL As long as you keep inspiring, though, I have no fear I'll get there. Love the goodies - especially the pin cushion (we'll all be wanting that one!) You're already on my blogroll; now I'm a follower, too.
Blessings!
Mary Lou

Cyndi loves to stitch said...

Happy 100th post, I found you at the Knot-y Embroidery Lady blog and when it said "red" quilts I just had to come by, I really like to stitch in red. I also had my 100th post just recently and am having a giveaway for it too, come by and register for it. Yesterday I also rolled over 100 followers, so I think I should maybe have another giveaway but I need to find something first........super busy last night no time to really think about it.

Becky said...

Hey! I am new to the blog world, as I am newly relocated. As I searched the internet for places of interest in this area - namely bakeries, book stores, coffee shops, and quilt shops, I discovered a wonderful quilt shop, was welcomed by a group of quilters, and joined a class, Circuit Rider Quilt - taught my Mary Lou. I follow her blog, and through her am now following yours! 100 posts and counting! I love that pincusion! Sweet. I must comment, as well on your rect post. My grandmother put a needle in my hand when I was five years old. And, in all that time, through my eternal love affair with quilts, I can honestly say that I could never, ever enter one of my quilts in a competition. I, too, am intimidated by the stringent rules. But, I have also realized - I love looking at all kinds of quilts from the very old and traditional, to the downright out there quilts being created by great artists today. And, I can also say, that like me, most folks create quilts for the love of creating! No, I don't quilt so many stitches per inch. More power to those that do. But, I am leaving a loving legacy for my kids and their kids, for my friends and family. Take joy in the morning, joy in the quiltling, and joy in creating!
