    I think I would lean towards Seasonal colours - especially Christmas Brights.

    I would love to be entered in your giveaway ~ I love fall colors, shaker colors, prim colors ~ all muted shades.

  19. What a wonderful giveaway and congrats on the 100 followers. I would love to enter your giveaway I like bright colours.

  20. Congratulations Sue on your 100 milestone.
    I'll be celebrating at 101 unless I can figure out how to remove myself. *sheesh*
    I like muted country/prim colors.
    I'm SO HAPPY for you!

  21. Congratulations on reaching 100, Sue (now 103!!)... I always enjoy reading your posts and hearing from you...

    You know me, I love my blues :)

  22. I love your blog, and it's great to see that so many others do too!
    Please add my name to your drawing...my favorites are the autumn colors.

  23. I would love to be entered into your draw! Since I seem to do so much Christmas stitching I would have to say holiday/seasonal colour would be my favorite.

  24. I think that one of the "color families" of DMC would be a cool prize--great for doing tonal work! But, there are about 20 colors in each family, I think, so that might be to large a prize. 0_o

    Congrats on your milestone. :)

  25. Oh, Sue...thank you so much. I am honored. *hugs*

  26. Congrats on the 100 followers - I am approaching that mark as well. I'd love to be entered in your draw - I love reds and naturals colors -
    Take care
    Good luck to all :)


A visit from a friend is like a piece of fine chocolate ~ always looked forward to, sincerely appreciated, over with and gone too soon... and leaving you wanting more:)
