And the winner is!

I'm sorry for being a day late on the jewelry pouch give away. I was just to tired to blog yesterday afternoon after I got home from a wonderful four day sewing and quilting retreat. (More on that later). Thanks to all of you that left comments on my 300th post. It was so fun reading about everyone's piece of jewelry. I never did tell you about mine, so here goes. I have several peices that I love. My wonderful husband has always spoiled me with nice jewelry. But the 3 most loved pieces came each time I was in the hospital when our kids were being born. When Kira was born he gave me a nice pair of diamond earrings that matched the necklace he gave me on our wedding day. The second is a diamond horseshow ring that he gave me when Jacob was born. And the third piece is the beautiful mother's ring he gave me when Kaitlyn was born. These have been cherished pieces since then. Everytime I put a different piece on I think of the occasion it came with, like a silver and gold ring Stuart gave me for Christmas following the death of my Dad. The minute I put it on I think of him. I could go on and on about the stories behind each piece, but here is what you have all been waiting for. So Martine and Ginger please e-mail me with your addresses so I can get your pouches out to you. Thanks everyone for being such faithful followers. Just through the blogging world I have made several friends. Hopefully this summer I will have the chance to meet my friend Yvonne from the Netherlands. This is a story that needs to be shared so I will blog about it at a later time.
