Two Hundred!?

I'm not such a blabbermouth as I thought I was. It's taken me over three years to reach two hundred posts. I was going to claim that I promote quality over quantity. That might work until y'all read some of this stuff. Then somebody's going to wonder about the quality of the stuff I've been drinking (only the best tea, thanks).

It would be really fun to give away one thing for each post! Oh, yeah -- dream on. I don't have that much extraneous tatting stuff. I do have lots and lots of extraneous stuff, but I don't think anybody reading this wants my old shoes or the treasures in my ragbag.

There is a little something somebody might like, though. Oh, not my phone, but the charm. Well, not the charm that's attached to my phone (because it's attached to my phone). This nice dark green charm. It's made of size 20 Haklegarn worked over a plastic ring with a whole pile of clear seed beads built right in.

If you think you might like to have it, leave me a comment on this post, and a way to contact you. On Monday next (that would be the 22nd of March) I'll either get a random number generated, or have one of my nieces draw a name out of a box or a bag. Not only will I send you this spiffy charm, but I'll include a really nifty beading-threader-thread-weaver-inner-all-around-useful big-eye needle.

I love green! can I enter your giveaway please? (although, since I don't use a mobile phone, I would have to attach it to my tatting bag instead.....)

I cannot believe there are no comments here yet. First of all, congratullations for your two hundred, and of course for your beautiful projects. It is a very good idea to put a charm in the telephone. My e mail is: herbaliciaburrola@gmail.com

Thanks for sharing!

Congratulations on your 200th post. I enjoy coming to the site to read your posts and seeing your newest creations! I'm looking forward to the next 200!

I would love to be included in your drawing. I haven't been brave enough to try tatting on a ring yet. It kind of intimidates me, but I think it's beautiful.

Marty,
I wouldn love having this charm hanging off my phone. Please add me to the list for the draw.

Is the blue variegated version also Hakelgarn? It looks like the ball of Hakelgarn that I have. I should bring that out again and make something with it.

200 Wow - O - WOW!! That certianly a bunch of posts with many, many more to come. Your tatting is always so lovely. Great imagination and creativity - and it shows. Please keep the posts coming. I have just started working with variegated threads and also with beads. My tatting was just in plain colors, but now I'm branching out after seeing all the other wonderful things everyone is doing on the web. It's a learning experience for me.

Congratulations on 200 posts! No matter how long it took to get there, it is still quite an accomplishment:-) Your followers seem content to have followed your blog for three years, so as for quantity and quality, both must be fine:-) Thank you for having a giveaway to celebrate. Please enter me into the drawing for this lovely little charm. It would be an honor to own a piece of your work:-)
