Let the party begin

Tomorrow is the Grow Your Blog party.  It should be fun.   I'm looking forward to reading blogs and meeting new bloggers. 

Welcome to my blog.  Your comments are appreciated.  Maybe become a follower. 

In the spirit of friendship and sharing, I will host my first giveaway.  It will be stitching related and yes, it is a surprise.  To enter the giveaway, leave a comment. A draw will be held on January 20th and the winner will be announced.
