7th Blogoversary Giveaway

Good morning all!

It's 9:22am on the 3rd March 2021 and I'm singing 'Happy Seventh Blogoversary to me'!!

Can you believe it's been a year since I posted my last anniversary giveaway? How this year has flown, and not necessarily for the right reasons.

And it doesn't seem possible that I started this blog SEVEN YEARS AGO! Wow! I wonder if I thought back then I'd still be going strong seven years down the line? No reason to quit though. Many bloggers have dropped off the radar but, along with many of you, I'm not going anywhere!

Anyway, it's time for my annual blogoversary giveaway. Up for grabs, as usual, is a voucher for the store of your choice to the value of £10 (about US$13), or a RAK or suchlike for a similar value. I'm open to suggestions from the winner.

All you have to do is:
1) be a follower of my blog via the followers thingy on the left
2) leave a comment on this post with an answer to the following question in it...

As at the end of February 2021 I have finished 297 cross stitch projects. How many hours do you think it has taken me to stitch them all?

It's that easy!

Only one entry per person will be accepted.

The only hints I will give you is that all four digits are different and the second digit is the highest.

The winner will be the one who guesses closest to the actual number (whether that be higher or lower). In the event of a tie I will offer the appropriate number of prizes.

Entries will close at 5am GMT on 10th March 2021, so you have just under a week to leave a comment. The answer and winner(s) will be announced at the end of the 10th March FFG SAL link-up post, so keep an eye out for that - it's up to you to contact me, otherwise you will lose out! I'll get the prize(s) out once confirmation emails have been exchanged.

Good luck guessing!

Happy Blogaversary! I was thinking "that's a lot of finishes and then I realised you didn't mean in the last year LOL
I'm going for 6,935 hours based on 2 hours per day for every year you've been blogging plus an extra two years for the pre-blogging years!

Happy Blogaversary. I'm sure glad I stumbled upon your blog. Love seeing your stitching. Let's see. 8,924 hours.

Happy bloggoversary, and thanks for the fun game!
So, let's think. 297 projects would take a lot of time for sure, and I was tempted to go with Jo's reasoning (and estimating your total stitching time), but then I remembered how many WIPs you had that weren't done yet, and that would take up some of that time too, so I'm going to go a little lower at 5742 hours for the finishes.

What do you mean it is just that easy? LOL That is a lot of stitched pieces so that is a lot of stitching time!! I know you stitch everyday but there is not a certain number of hours a day!

🤔 I am just going to take a wild guess and say you have stitched for 5,961 hours to get all that accomplished.
