100th post giveaway

First the bathroom remodel update then on to the giveaway. Tiling continues, it really looks good, I am totally ready for them to be done. You know how the last ten miles before you get home from a long car trip are the longest. That is how I feel right now. So close, yet so far. Now for the pictures. This is the best I could do because the floor tile is still setting as I type. I promise no more bathroom picture on my blog until the bathroom is done.


I have reached the milestone of 100 post to my blog. To celebrate I thought that I would giveaway a small knitting bundle. It consists of the knitting pattern booklet Kindred by Louisa Harding and three different Louisa Harding yarns. I just love her booklets because of the photography and the fact that she writes patterns for children and teens. As the parent of a child and a teen I can tell you that stylish knitting patterns for these age groups are in short supply.
How to win my very modest knitting package, you ask? Just post a comment by July 14th 12pm Pacific time. That is it, that is all. You don't have to list some weird random fact about yourself to win (you can if you want to but, you don' t have to). On July 15th I will enlist the help of one of my children or the dog depending on who is more cooperative and draw a person at random.

I'm remodeling a bathroom as well. I was mudding and sanding last weekend--we just have to re-drywall around the new shower/tub, but that's pain enough. I've never mudded before...it wasn't pretty. Sanding is more my thing.
