It's my party, and I'll cry if I want to...

I have been checking my blog for a week or two and I am stuck!! My followers are stuck at 299!! Can you believe that!!?? I feel sort of sad that I cannot enhance SOMEone -- just ONE more person (stitcher), to follow me (of course, others are very welcome!). I want to see the numbers 3-0-0 there!

I shall let you in on a little secret--this is my Blogoversary month. So much has been going on, I haven't had time to post about it. But I have been puzzling over what to do about it. Of course, I have riddles for you... but what shall I do for the winner?? Well, here it is... There will be TWO winners...The first winner will be the first NEW Follower to answer the riddles (notice plural--it is a SET!) correctly. Then for my Faithful Followers, The Winner will be drawn at RANDOM from among all the correct answers.

The prizes will be: For the Newbie Follower, 'A Fine Collection' by Blackbird Designs, which has TWELVE monthly patterns in it.

And for the Faithful Follower that wins, you may pick from the following: Blackbird Designs: Loose Feathers Pattern 33, 'Keepsake Box & Pinkeep'

which INCLUDES my favorite bonus chart, 'I Cannot Count My Day Complete, Till Needle, Thread and Fabric Meet'

this is my framed piece!

AND 'Birds of a Feather, counted threads from times past' a 2006 chart, the first in their Reproduction Series;

OR Brightneedle 'Bless the Cooks'

AND 'Can you Spy...?'

OR Wiehenburg Designs ' Quaker Star Janine'

AND 'Quaker Heart Susan'

Okay--so what are the Riddles, you ask? (Again, courtesy of my granddaughter..) How do you catch a unique bunny? And how do you catch a tame one?

So--that's it. Answer the riddles, entice ONE more person to follow me... you could be a winner! I will close the fun and games next Friday and draw the names on Saturday.

Ok--I am off to take a bunch of herbs and go to bed early. My throat is sore, and I am trying to prevent it from going further...which is what usually happens. I was doing so well this winter, with no sicknesses. Pray that I do not get seriously sick. Again.

Have fun!

What a fun giveaway ~ unique up on it....the same way. I'm ashamed to admit it took me a long time to figure out the second answer before looking at the other coments. It's been a long time since I've had kids around. ♡

I'm a newbie . . . & I feel like I'm cheating 'cause I could see the answers in the other comments . . . I did know the 1st answer though! BUT, to make it official: 1) u-nique up on him & 2) the tame way

Pam in IL said...

Ahahaha, I actually know the answers to the riddles -- thanks to my little neighbor girl, lol.

To catch a unique bunny, "unique up on it" and you catch a tame bunny "the tame way".

Hope you get your 300rd follower!

Beauty Bonnet said...

I'm a new follower (yikes, I don't know how I came upon your blog and that was just an hour ago, talk about short term!) and I saw your lament, but it looks like you have got 8 more than 300, so you met your goal!
To catch a unique one, unique up on it, and a tame one, tame way!


Have a great Blogoversary!
