100th Post Giveaway!!!

Hello dear friends.

As I recently hinted, my 100th post was coming up and today is that day. Wow! I can't believe that I have done 100 posts since I started this blog.

I very much appreciate that you take the time to visit me, so I have made a fabric collage as a giveaway. All you have to do is leave one comment on this post. You can do it anytime between now and day's end on April 10th.  (For those of you that may not be familiar with leaving comments, at the end of this post a comment box should appear, but if it doesn't, please just click on the word "comments" and the box should pop up.) The winner will be chosen via a random number generator on April 12th. Please make sure that I have a way to contact you!

Below are some additional photos of the collage. It measures about 8 by 10 inches. I have used a beautiful vintage photo of two young girls with a baby lamb (this is one of my favorite photos). The photo has been printed onto fabric and is embellished with very old lace pieces, vintage pearl buttons, a silk cone flower and ribbons. Most of it is hand-sewn, and the background is burlap.

Can you tell that spring is on my mind?

I hope that you like it, and that you are having a great day! Thanks so much for visiting me.
