Don't ask God to make your life easier, ask Him to make you a stronger person.

300th Follower . . . . .

No, I don't have 300 followers but I was the 300th follower over at Debbie's blog back in July.  Debbie and I were joking around by email about how she was going to have a giveaway when she reached 300 followers.  When I decided to become a follower of hers, I happened to be #300.  I didn't win the giveaway but Debbie was kind enough to send a gift to me anyway.  For being #300!

This is what she sent . . . .a glass frog!  Isn't it adorable?!

I probably could fill it with many quilty things.  Maybe put some perle cottons inside and have the thread come up through the holes.  Debbie suggested putting scissors in each of the holes.  I'll have to play with that later but for now . . . . .

. . . . .flowers sure are nice.  Be sure to visit Debbie over at Thread Gatherer and tell her I said hi!  And thanks, Debbie !!

Don't forget tomorrow is Sue's Christmas Quilt-a-long.  

I will be spending part of the day with Teresa and our Stitchin' Friends group.  Teresa usually has a project for us to work on but this week is a Do-your-own-thing day.  You know I will be working on my Christmas projects!!

Blessings, Cathi

The flowers look wonderful in it Cathi. I have a couple that I use just for flowers. I've collected so many of them that I don't have enough scissors to fill them. Congrats for being my 300th follower and hope that you enjoy the frog no matter what you use it for.
