Giveaway #1

In my first year of blogging, I took a pottery class, knit my nephew a sweater, hooked several checkerboards for Christmas gifts, created new purse patterns, finished a couple of pillows, got a new to me sewing machine, finished another new purse, hand-wove some scarves, hooked another new purse.....along with many other things.

I was also still very much involved with the creation of "the R.U.G. sack" – a twice-yearly newsletter to record the happenings of the Spring and Fall gatherings at the Simcoe County Museum. The newsletter evolved over the 9 issues I edited and wrote between 2004-2008....and I think that the issues contain information and ideas that are still useful today. During the big purge a couple of weeks ago, I happened upon a 2nd full set of these newsletters that I would like to share with one lucky reader.

If you are interested in adding the complete collection of "the R.U.G. sack" to your library, please leave a comment and answer the following question: "How did you first discover this blog?" Did you happen upon it randomly, were you referred by another blog or link (where?), did you hear about it from me or someone else (who?).....I would really like to know how you happened to visit that first time.

On Thursday November 3rd, I will randomly draw for this giveaway, using only the comments recorded below. The lucky recipient will be announced on Friday November 4th.

All readers are welcome to comment on any or all of the giveaways – the only thing that I ask is that you check back here on the 4th to see if you are one of the lucky ones. I want to get the parcels out quickly, so I will need the winners' mailing addresses ASAP (and I'd really like to mail any US parcels when I go to Shelburne the following week....for faster delivery and cheaper postage).
