Congratulations Becka!

The random number generator says #25 so my winner from the Grown Your Blog party is Becka from Girasole Farm.  Congratulations, Becka!  I was happy to meet you and I had, in fact, already added you to the sidebar on my blog before I even knew you were the winner.  I am looking forward to following your posts.
Thank you to everyone who stopped by to say hello and leave a comment!

I have few updates to share, as well.  Betty left a comment on my last post letting me know the handwork on the doily on the right side is made using a combination of cornation cord and crochet.
  Thank you so much, Betty, for helping us all learn!
I mentioned at the beginning of the month that I was going to sign up to take credit cards and offer international shipping in my Etsy and said I would update you other Etsy sellers on the results.  The recent increase in USPS prices has been DAUNTING to say the least but I will soldier on because the changes easily increased my sales by at least 50%.  If you haven't done it yet - go for it!

Hi Kathy-
I just replied to your email and sent you my mailing address.
I am thrilled to be the winner of your lovely Valentine kit. Wow- and just in time for Valentine's Day too. I enjoyed the information you shared about vintage lace and doily's. Both of the books you mentioned sound like a wonderful resource. I'm looking forward to learning more as your share your knowledge here on your blog.
Thank you for the inspiration.
I will let you know as soon as I receive your package.
Thank you again.
Hugs- Becka @ Girasole Farm

Congrats to Becka!!
Yay for increased sales! That's really good news for you. As an Etsy customer, I was really glad when they allowed sellers to accept credit cards. It's just easier!

That's awesome! I still don't know what coronation cord is, though! ;)
