Weekend over...

Well we had a pretty relaxing weekend, but yesterday I discovered I forgot my anniversary!  No, not "OUR" (Mr. O and I ) anniversary, but my blog's 1st Anniversary. It was 3 weeks ago; June 22! I was waiting for it, and then I got so busy, it slipped right by without me even noticing. Shame  on me!

Hard to believe a year has passed since I started blogging. I mentioned  a little while ago that I was going to have a little give away. I was wondering if any one had noticed any kind of a theme going on with my blog titles. The last 23  posts or so have had a sort of theme. I also slipped up in the midst of it and missed one entry...did you notice it?
If you have any idea what I am talking about drop me a comment. I have had people say to me that they can't comment...doesn't work...but let me help. Drop down to the end of the post and where it says 0 comments click that. A new window will open with a blank comment box above which says Post a comment. Write your comment in the box...then directly under that box it has a drop dowm box with the question "Comment as"...if you have a Google account choose that option, or scroll down to where it says anonymous. Click that one. Then click the small box that says "Post Comment"
You may get a message saying it cannot be posted, but clickPost comment again. You may also have to  type in a scrambled bunch of letters as verification. Do that then post comment and it should work.
Now I realize there will be thousands ,hundreds , tens  okay maybe one or two comments to this post. For those of you who give me the right answer as to what the continuing theme has been for the last 20 or so posts, I have a little giftie. Want to see it?
It is a charm pack with 30 charms. I opened the package to show you all the yummy prints inside...

Now I know you only see 10 charms here, but there are three of each print. Guess what? I only needed 25 charms to make the "strawberry social" purse. They go a lot further than you think.
I have a little extra something to throw in with it too. It is a bone folder; well they used to be made of bone, Mr. O made this one out of wood, but let me tell you it is a handy little gadget. Looks something like this . It can press a quick seam for you, and push out corners when you need that done too. I also use it in my scrapbooking for scoring paper, and creasing cardstock.I am sure it has other uses too, but you get the idea...
So drop me a comment and I will get Mr. O to draw from the all-l-l-l the winning answers.
Let's say give me your answer by next Sunday midnight and I will post the winner Monday morning.

i think i got it!!!! And if I'm not e"x"actly bang on then I'm way out in left field, I guess! LOL
How did I do Sis???
and by the way you don't have to put my name in for the draw...it just would not seem right if you were to pull your sisters name out of the hat, would it?

I've got it too... and you skipped "O" and "V"... I sometimes have a hard time coming up with post titles at all, let alone alphabetizing them...

Well, I was leaving my comment anyway even though I didn't have a clue as to the theme. It seemed to be a lot of reds to me, including the red work, t-shirts on your guys and the strawberries and rhubarb. Of course now I've been given the answer of the alphabet. Those are definitely my colors, so if you don't consider that I cheated, count me in.

You've been using the letters of the alphabet for your titles clever girl...my favourite was "P". Happy 1st blog anniversary. According to the list of proper anniversary gifts, paper is the one for a first anniversary. Maybe the appropriate gift to celebrate this one would be a box of Alphabet cereal. [I want to make it perfectly clear that I am not in any way bribing my way to the fabric prize- just wanting to celebrate a milestone]. Alphabet cereal was a big-time treat for my brothers & I when we were kids! Sue

Would you believe I had to write your titles down and study them for a while before realizing you were doing the alphabet theme. I like that you missed two of the letters....especially the "O" because of Mr.O. I could call my hubby Mr. "C", but your Mr.O. just sounds so much better.
Clever Wendy....I've always said...YOU'RE GOOD!!

As a teacher I LOVE the alphabetics (but what happened to "o" and "v"? Hope you're not saving them for "Oy vey!" :) Congratulations on your blogiversary- I just celebrated one of my own not too long ago- isn't BlogLand a wonderful community?
