Let's celebrate my 1000th post (which was technically this one). And my 40th birthday this weekend! And 35 weeks of pregnancy! And spring - why not? - let's throw spring in there too, even though I'm still wearing knee socks, winter coats, and flannel pajamas. In defiance of the cold, I bought daffodils for my birthday this morning and a friend brought me potted tulips.
I made you a little something - a hotpad in the hopeful greens of spring - and then I knit up a bright dishcloth and added a cute green pear loofah scrubber (safe for even delicate surfaces, tough enough to scrub off gunk - and made in India with profits returning to the people for schools, medical care, and improved living conditions).

To win this giveaway, just leave a comment on this post and be sure to include your email if I can't access it from your profile. For fun, if you want, you can tell us about a number that is special to you right now. I'll close the comments on Sunday evening, March 29, and pick a random winner. Giveaway open to U.S. and Canada addresses only (sorry dear international readers!!), but please feel free to leave a comment anyway if you wish.
Thank you, all, for your wise, funny, and kind comments that add a conversational element to this blog. I'm not sure I would have written 1000 posts without your feedback and interest! Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.
