You Want Some of This?


Tonight I'm somewhat quietly quilting in the Sweat Shop and planning an early evening in bed with a good book, so I thought I'd just post a reminder that if you're interested in acquiring a rather heavy box of leftover fabrics straight from the Kim's Big Quilting Adventure Sweat Shop and if you live here in the US ('cause although a certain amount of fame has come my way, fortune is lagging far, far behind), please scroll down a couple posts to my giveaway (I think it was the Monday post) and leave me a comment saying you want to be entered to win. I'll be brushing off the old random number generator (aka Hubby) tomorrow night to draw the winner, so don't be late!

And here's another sort of fun thing, I think. Scroll down to that counter thing in my sidebar. As you'll notice, I've had more visitors than I can count on my fingers and toes, and it looks like it's not too far from turning over to another big number--if my blog was a car and those were miles, it would be on it's last legs, that's for sure! So here's the game. Tell me the date you think it will turn over to 300,000 visitors. Those of you who guess the right date will go into a drawing. And because I very rarely even look at that counter thing, the person who notices and first comments when it goes over 300,000 also gets into the drawing--maybe even as a second entry if the same person already guessed the date correctly too! I'll only leave the comments for this open until Thursday night, so get your guess in soon. After that, no more guessing and we'll see who wins!

Oh, and I suppose the winner would want a prize too? Okay, if the winner is here in the US, that person will get to chose either a box of leftover/scrap fabrics JUST LIKE THE ONE UP ABOVE or a couple of patterns--I'll figure out which patterns in the next day or two. And if the winner lives somewhere outside the US? The winner will get the patterns--because they're light enough not to cost me a fortune to send! I'm thinking the patterns will probably be a couple I'd like to give away and maybe one of my new Changing Leaves patterns WITH the wool necessary to make it. Or maybe just one of my kits I've made up for that pattern (you can see a photo of the kit in my Etsy store). Or something like that--something pretty okay anyway. So, do you want to play? Leave me a comment ON THIS POST with the date you think the counter will turn over to 300,000. Don't you just love a good guessing game?!

Well, if I figure I just keep coming back everyday, several times a day and keep that counter going...Hmmm....just kidding of course! I'm thinking 1 Sept just cause it is hubby's birthday and he seems to have all the luck!

Fiesta said...

Kim, I don't see the counter but at the rate you are going I will say by Saturday.

Lynn Osborne said...

Wow! That's a big number. How about August 29?

Pam Marshall said...

I'll say the 30th.
Read your blog faithfully.

Nancy said...

Let's see....297,700 divided by how many days you have been blogging times the number of people that actually comment divided by the number of people that don't comment and add the the days of the week and then click your heels three times and say " I wanna be the winner, I wanna be the winner, I wanna be the winner"
Or just guess!! the 26th.... for no apparent reason whatsoever....

That is a huge box with scraps. I am guessing Monday the 24th, because that is when the kids are going back to school.

Jan said...

Whow! That is a lot of visitors ... but then again, you have a great Blog, so I can certainly understand how you reached such a wonderfully high number. Now on the date it will roll over ... uhmmmmmmm, let's see! I think I'll say Sept 7th ... cuz it's my Dad's Birthday (he's in Heaven now) and it's also Labor Day! Congratulations on such wonderful success :)

Wow, you get alot of hits. I will guess Sunday, August 23rd. Enjoy your weekend and thanks for the contest.

quiltmom said...

Well Kim,
I am going to guess August 31 because it is the day I return back to school.
I am not sure that it will be soon enough but there is no mathematical way to predict when the counter turns over-
You do think of the most interesting contests..
Happy quilting...
Regards,
Anna

Dena said...

I'll take a guess that on August 28th, you'll pass the 300,000 mark. How exciting!

Colleen said...

Oh I am CRYING over here! I missed the first giveaway... Rats!

Okay, I absolutely can't miss this one. My guess is August 23.

Liz said...

I'm going to guess August 31 - for no particular reason! Guessing the counter is certainly different! Let's see, if I come back often to check the counter, will I screw up my chances by increasing the count? Such a dilemma!

Kait said...

I think that it is going to be Friday, August 21 around 9:00 p.m. when it will roll over to 300000! Hope I win!

Barb said...

The counter is going to turn over to 300000 if the very early hours of August 22, 2009!

Anonymous said...

I'm going to guess the you'll reach 300 thousand on September the 15th.
