Happy Blogiversary to ME!!!

Well, this is it! My third blogiversary! When I first started blogging on, I never thought that I would have the following that I do now. I just figured it would be the same 10 or 15 bloggers who used that website and that would be it.

Since the start, I have converted to Blogger, learned how to use the widgets to add interest to my blog, learned how to write in html code when needed, and gained quite a few close friends! I upgraded my sewing machine twice and acquired a short arm quilting system.

I've gotten ideas and suggestions for things that I have worked on and I have found a ton of blogs to read and, in doing so, have added a ton of things to my "Must Do Someday" list! Thank you all for that! lol

I've gotten comfort from my blog friends when it was much needed and it was greatly appreciated. And I have supplied comfort when needed to my fellow bloggers and friends.

In all respects, this has been a great journey and I can't wait to see what the future holds for me, my blog, my pups and my fellow bloggers!

Ok, enough of the mushy crap! You aren't reading for that, right? You are all here to find out the winners for the Giveaways, right?

Well, here they are without further adieu!!
