Blogging Celebration: One Year, "Give Away"

After many months of encouragement from my dear friends at Crazy Quilt International, I started down this unknown path of blogging. I have enjoyed sharing photos of my creative projects, garden blooms, family, friends, and my travels near and far.

To me the very best part of blogging is the friendship connections. This new treasured network of friends that has developed is something I look forward to everyday. Peeking into their world, and they peeking into mind has become very gratifying. It is very rewarding and soul-filling to be able to relate to other "Kindred Spirits" with similar passions.

A very Sincere "Thank You" to "Everyone" for visiting My "CJ Stitching and Blooms" blog. I also want those who leave messages for me to read to know they are all "Heartwarming" and they always bring a Smile to My Face!

I have created two special gifts to "Give Away" to my visitors, "Provence" and "Babushka Cloth Doll". Please leave me a message mentioning my "Blogging Celebration" and I will place your name in a hat and two names will be drawn by My Dear Husband on August 16th. I will announce the "Two Winners" on August 17th 2008.

Everyone of my "Dear Visitors" that have "Already" left me comments on the two previous post, "Provence" and "Babushka Cloth Doll" will automatically be included in the drawing too. I planned to post this message on July 31st but unfortunately I experience a "Bogger's Glitch" so today was the first time I could get back onto my blog. My apology for not responding sooner to all your kind comments.

Happy Blogging. Hugs Judy
