Grand give-away when I reach the next blog milestone

 9851 different comments have been posted to my blog since I started writing in January, 2006.  That is a lot of comments!  In fact, it is only 149 comments short of 10 thousand

I'm constantly amazed that so many people felt compelled to comment on my scribblings.  Since that milestone isn't all that far away, I've decided to honor reaching it with a give-away contest.

See that giant list of "HSY's (Hussies" aka "Haven't started Yet's") on my left side bar?  There are 64 listed, and I know I have a bunch that never got listed.  There is no way I can finish all of these.  So I'm going to give one of them away.

The person who posts the 10,000th comment on my blog will win one of my yet to be started kits.  I'll send it to anywhere in the world.  I figure this is a great way to stash bust!  And I'll make sure either you have the book that goes with the kit or I'll choose a kit that comes with a pattern. 

As usual, I need to be able to reach you via email, so you will count as the 10,000th comment only if your email shows on your Blogger profile.

So ladies (and gents, if there are any who read my blog) - start commenting!

I gotta say - this is SO COOL!!! Now I'm going to have to keep peeking for new posts so that I can keep commenting ;)

Any chance you can attach some of the long and skinny rulers to the table itself? I had my DH install a couple of "fences" (just think wood strips) along the edge of my table that I can slide my rulers in and out of. Just a thought!

OK I'll add to the number to make it closer to 10,000. and will also add if I win I'll be very interested in No 56 on your list to lighten your load.

I just wanted to raise my hand and be counted as a gent who reads your blog. It has definitely given me inspiration.

Julierose said...

WOW--that's some list you have...I am afraid to write mine out as it might stretch around the earth!! Thanks for the chance---Julierose

Miz Karen said...

That's quite a list. You have inspired me to finish all my UFO's now that I'm retired.

Did finish a wall hanging this week that was started a number of years ago. Now on to the next one.

If we get a choice if our number comes up, I like #20, but anything about flowers would be great.

MJinMichigan said...

That is a really generous offer. I'd love to win one of you HSYs because I don't have enough of my own. LOL Okay the real reason is that we have such similar taste in quilts that I know I would love anything you liked enough to buy.

Vicki said...

I too, have let comments on a few posts - will help someone get a wonderful prize. Very generous one too from the looks of that list.

Kathryn said...

Would be great to be the winner.

Winona said...

Yep, quite a list. I found your organization in the previous post to be very interesting as well. Looking good.

KT said...

Well I better help the count get higher!! I will be checking back to see if I can try to win :)

Vicki said...

last comment - I think - just saw you have bloggers from Holland and Belize - all over the world reading your blog! OMG - how exciting.I have written down info from a couple of your tutorials and I will be back. Maybe someday soon I will be sending you photos of my room:)

This Dog's Mom said...

I'm impressed that you keep track of your unfinished objects! I'm afraid that mine are all over the sewing room. That doesn't mean that I wouldn't love more though! Thnaks for the giveaway opportunity, and for your inspiring blog!

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

Wow I'm really impressed! You have had quite a lot of comments since blogging. Great idea for a giveaway!

Jan Baker said...

Maybe we should all exchange those projects that we are never going to finish. I bet someone else would be excited just like we were in the beginning

MuleHill said...

I don't want to win. Just want to push the number higher. :0)

sewkalico said...

Well, I like commenting (when I can) so you don't have to ask me twice lol

Leah Spencer said...

So if I post 150 times in a row... my odds are pretty good for hitting 10,000? ;)
