Happy Birthday blog!

I just cannot believe an entire year has gone by and this blog is 1 year old on Friday, August 17th! I have loved doing the blog and it has developed into more blogs. I am going to hold a birthday give~away. During the past few days, I have had to put my stitching and quilting aside to work on some wool~felt pincushions. I will be giving away three gifts. The grand prize winner will receive stash which I will reveal when I have drawn the names and two runners~up will receive one of my homemade birthday cake pincushions as shown here. I am having lots of fun making these.

To be part of this give~away drawing, simply leave a comment on this post! On Sunday, August 19th, I will put all the names in a hat and draw the winners. You will have to be willing to email me with your full name and address. I will announce the winners this coming Sunday.....

I just discovered your blog yesterday and really enjoyed the pictures of the lacemaking in Bruges. Would love to go there someday! Your pincushion is beautiful! I'm finishing phobic so it's amazing! I'm hoping to learn how to set up a blog. Want my DS to help me when he can spare a few minutes (he's 14!) Thanks for sharing in yours! Nancy D. in NY

Hi Heidi, I'm back from my holiday in Ireland and I decided I have to go on a diat after the "full Irish breakfasts"! And now I see your lovely Happy Birthday blog-pinkeep! Last time I was on a diat you made the adorable chocolate-pinkeep. You make it difficult for me but I love all your work and especially your blog. Congretulations:)

Heidi ~ I think it's fun that you announced your blog's birthday and give-away on *my* birthday. Gosh, we've shared a few family birthdays, and now I share one the same week as your blog, teehee. I can't begin to tell you how much I enjoy reading NeedleNecessities every day (as well as your other blogs). And, you're the reason I started my own! You're always an inspiration and a very special friend. Hugs and blog birthday wishes... Joanne

Hi Heidi, Your birthday cake is so cute. It's hard to imagine your blog is a year old, I really enjoy reading it and the lace photos are awesome especially the one with the little girl and dog, it must have taken ages to do.
Please include me in your draw for a pin cushion. Many thanks, Hazel FTLOS

Hi Heidi, you have been such an inspiration to so many of us, what with pinkeeps and SAL's and of course showing some of us how much fun it is to do a blog.

Happy Birthday NeedleNecessities.

With stitches plain and fancy,

Heidi,
Warm and wonderful birthday wishes to your blog. I know that it has given me a whole year of pure pleasure. All your blogs reflect not only your amazing creativity but also your natural teaching and sharing qualities. We've learned so much from you this year and I hope we 'll continue to do so for many more years to come.
Your little pincushion birthday cake is just gorgeous. It makes such a change for something to look so pretty but have no calories :>)
Lots of big hugs, Angela
