2nd Blogoversary Giveaway!! - Cadeau

Today is my 2nd Blogoversary!
Time flies so fast, it's been already 2 years since I've started blog in English...
I still remember when I wrote
the first post, I just didn't know what to write and even only easy little words didn't come up into my mind in English...
To writing and reading blog(s) is only the way I can learn English, I hope my English is getting a little bit better than 2 years ago!

By the way, here is Blogoversary Giveaway as I mentioned before!
Thank you so much everyone for visiting my small cyberspace, and thanks for comments always.
I really appreciate for them a lot, they really make my day indeed!
So here are some token of appreciation from me to you!


1. The left one : is the Biscornu that I recently made as referred © Atalie "Fevrier 2007".
(detalis are on the last post...)
It's a bit large as I stitched on 28ct linen, so please don't laugh at it when you received it, lol

2. The right one : Kreinik Silk Mori Kit, "Williamsburg Lady" © Historic Stitches.
Inside : Milkpaint colours in Kreinik Silk Mori and the chart for this design. You will need a 17" x 14" piece of 32ct tan linen.


If you would like to have a chance to win, what you need to do is just leave a comment on this post only.
Please let me know which one you want, of course you can enter for both items!
Please include your e-mail address, otherwise I won't be able to contact you when you've won!
And this giveaway is open for everyone, welcome people who have never left comment here, it doesn't matter at all! :D


I will draw the names for these items on 16th November (Sunday) - Japanese time.
So you have 1 week to enter the drawing!
I hope you all will have fun and hope winner will like them!

I didn't write much about my (our) life on my blog because I thought it might be boring for you, but as I love and am very interested in reading your life in foreign countries, I sometimes may write about my life and family here from now! (hope it doesn't get you bored...)

Thank you so much always for visiting and thanks for the lovely comments!
I'd really appreciate for all of you!

Take care and Happy Stitching!

I would be considered a lurker since I do not have a blog, but I have so enjoyed your blog. Your stitching is beautiful, as well as, your finishing. Please enter me in both drawings. I enjoy hearing about your son. My heart went out to you when you spoke of your mother-in-law. I did not have the same experience, but I do know that my mother had the same type experience with my grandmother (I never knew her.) Mother just tried to be respectful in her presence, but did not visit with her very much. Hang in there. My e-mail is dawsonjunk@austin.rr.com.
