Chloe is jumping for joy! The big 500!

It is finally here, the 500th post. My family has been making fun of me all morning about this. But not Chloe! She is jumping for joy!

So leave a comment on this post and your name will go into the drawing. The prize is a surprise, but I guarantee it is fun and quilting related. I"m hoping Jenna (who is home for spring break), Emily and Chloe will draw the name sometime Wednesday night after 6pm Central time. But since they are making fun of this I may have to resort to a random number generator.

And here she is trying to patiently wait for Wednesday night......
