Jane came with a bunch of her heart pins and told us each to pick one. We all sat around the table our hearts on our sweaters and shirts. The Common Thread Give-a-way group had never gotten together so we made plans a month in advance and on Saturday we had lunch. Jon made his veggie pasta with a salad on the side. We sat around for about three hours, talked about just about everything you could think of and had a really nice time.
We came up with the idea to have a give-a-way last August, as a way of connecting with our readers and introducing our readers to each others blogs. It has been a success for all of us and for the winners of the contests too. The give-a-ways always (unless we screw up, like I did this month) happen on the first Monday of the month. This month it’s Nancy’s turn. (Check out her website Spinning Glass Studio to see what you may have a chance to win) And I do believe the first Monday in April is April Fools Day (but trust me, we’re very serious when it comes to the give-a-way). Here’s some photo’s of the Common Threaders and a photo of Kim’s photo collage Dogs Dancing at the Carousel. Jon didn’t realize that both Izzy and Red were in the collage when he bought it.
