No more waiting.......the winner is Sherri at A Quilting Life!!! You'll find her blog here. I have sent her an e-mail and as soon as I get her snail mail address the package will be on it's way to her house. Thank you to everyone who left a comment and shared a memory of fall. I thoroughly enjoyed reading every one of them, sometimes more than once! I tried to e-mail each of you my thanks but was not able to reach each of you. But I tried! I am looking forward to the "Whirl into Winter Giveaway" that Debi is planning. Before that takes place there will be a little opportunity to win something the weekend of Oct. 24th. My daughter and I will be hosting a quilting retreat that weekend called "Friends Forever" and we are going to be preparing the favor baskets this coming Friday evening. I will prepare one extra basket for one lucky blogger. Come back on Friday, Oct. 24th and while we are at the retreat, you can sign up for a chance to win that basket. When I return Sunday evening, I'll draw a lucky name and post the winner on Monday morn, Oct. 27th.
Now to my "Blog Pick of the Week". You may have noticed that I have added a button on my sidebar for my weekly blog pick. I wasn't able to figure out how to do it but Terri at Purple&Paisley came to my rescue and in less time than I could be told how to do it, she had done it. Wow, I was impressed and very thankful! I have had so many helpful bloggers that have made it so much easier for me to learn about blogging. I wanted a way to say "hey, take a look at this blog because it's really cool" and if you have popped into my blog, I don't mind if you leave and check this one out because it is so neat. And who is my choice for this week..........well, it just has to go to Terri because she has a neat blog, shares her time and talents with others and for those of you who are doing Nanette's cottages, Terri also did the cottage block button. So take a peek at her blog (if you haven't already) and see just why I think it's a great blog.
Tomorrow I'll be posting Part II of my "Gratitude and Giveaways" post. See you then. Night all!
