For any new readers - and to review for the regulars - here's how it works. Each Wednesday during July, I will have a post that has a prize associated with it. To participate, I'll ask a question that you should answer, or ask you to talk about something specific, etc. Then you leave your comment on the post for that week, and on the Sunday of that week, I choose a winner. Monday's post will announce who that person is, they contact me, and I send them the goodies. I must add a disclaimer: I often don't send the prizes until I send them all at the end of the month. In any case, I always let the person know when things are on their way. This is open to anyone, anywhere in the world. I set aside a bit of money throughout the year for everything, so don't worry about postage costs, etc.
Something is new this year - at the end of the month, I'll choose someone from ALL of the comments on ALL of the posts, and they will be the recipient of an extra-special prize! I know that I originally said that I would announce all of this ahead of the first week, but I kept changing my mind about what the extra thing would be, so you're getting it now. All prizes are related to knitting/crochet, needlework, and/or reading. So you may only be interested in some of the giveaways, but remember that any comment on any week's post will make you eligible for the big giveaway.
Now that the details are done, here is the prize for this week:
If you are interested in being in the drawing for this giveaway, here is your question for Week 1:
Where were you born?
And I don't mean "in a hospital," or "under a tree" (though that might be interesting!), rather I mean, in what geographical location? I am always interested in this, because some people were born in the same place where they currently live, while others were born in a far flung place from where they find themselves now.
My answer: I was born in Wheeling, West Virginia. After that we moved around a lot, then we moved back there - it was weird, because my sisters and of course my parents were familiar with everything, but I had no memory of any of it!
Leave a comment on this post only no later than 12 noon (U.S. Eastern Daylight Time), on Sunday, July 11, 2021, and you will be part of the drawing. I'll use a random number generator to choose a winner, and announce it in a post on Monday.
