500th Post--Etui Give-Away

I have made three etuis to give as prizes in celebration of my 500th Blog Post. As I've reached the 500th Post, I guess that I've been doing a lot of blogging! It's fun and I've met some wonderful people in the world of Internet Blogging.

OK--what's an etui? Is that a word in the dictionary? It's not even in my pocket dictionary, but is in my Scrabble Dictionary. As you will notice in the second photo, in this instance it's a little needle book. (Pins and needles are not included in the give-away.) I made my own etui many moons ago, and it's been in active use ever since. As it is a bit of an unusual sewing accessory, I thought that I would sew these as a sort of party-favor kind of gift. I will be drawing for the winners.

How to win an etui:

  1. Bloggers, make a comment on this blog post before midnight Sunday--that would be Pacific Daylight Savings Time. (you figure that out)

  2. Be sure that you have your blog set so that your email address will be visible (so that I can find you to notify you.) If necessary --edit your profile to show your email address.

Roz, congratulations on 500 posts. I am glad you explain what these were, because I have never heard the word etuis. I don't even know how to pronounce it. LOL They look great, though, and who wouldn't love a little bag to carry needles/pins in?

Congratulations on your 500th post. Mine is rapidly approaching and I am also going to do something different!

Aren't those cute?! Good job! I'm surprised etui wasn't in the dictionary though; I didn't think it was THAT obscure a word!

I agree, you can sure meet some nice people in the blogging world. It has been a good substitute for the quilt guild meetings I can no longer attend.

Congrats on your 500th post. What a lot has happened since we started blogging. Gwen's published 2 more books, Tonya's published her first book, which has got to be a runaway success. We've started the Web Ring and the Yahoo Group. Wow - what a lot.

I'd love to own one of your etui's. My grandmother's leather one slowly giving up the ghost.

Keep blogging!

Congratulations on reaching your 500th blog post! This give away is such a great idea. You are very kind.

Your work is so beautiful. I'm especially inspired by your L'Chaim wall hanging. Lovely, just lovely!

It is such a pleasure to virtually meet you.

I think it's ok for me to enter even though I don't have a blog? I have a Blogger acccount :), and maybe that counts.
Your needle case is lovely and sweet. I'm sure we would all be happy to win. Congratulations on your 500th post-what an accomplishment, along with so many other good things for the quilting world.
