Blog Tour Housekeeping etc.

The Be Mine Blog Tour Contest is now closed. I closed the comments on my post.
I will announce the winners from my blog post tomorrow!
I am still verifying the grand prize winner and whether they have commented on all blogs.
I hope to have that tomorrow as well.
Just want you to know...we are working on it!!
I also wanted to take this time to thank ALL the tour participants.
I am/was overwhelmed at the comments...I had 631 on my post.
 And to that, I say "wow"!
I hope that all you will post or send a picture of any of the projects that you completed from the Be Mine tour.
We are excited to see them.

And since no blog post could possibly go without a picture...
I'd like to share my latest finish.

Valentine candy heart wool mat
I started this before Valentine's last year. I pulled it out and finished it a couple of days ago. It's found a nice home in my living room. It felt good to finish it...seems I haven't finished much lately.

I'll be back tomorrow with the list of winners.

Cute table runner Vickie, it is so nice to get these projects finished. I had fun with the Be Mine Blog Tour and I think everyone else did too.

Too cute! Reminds me of grade school. We always had those hearts, but they really didn't taste that good!

I have been looking through everyone's blog lists and have found some great sites. I enjoyed the tour concept. Valentines is not so big in Australia but seeing all the projects has inspired me to make something everyday. Cheers.
