Through the Years... #Giveaway

Howdy y'all! Crystal Barnes here and I hope y'all have a had as much fun celebrating with us this month as we have. Today, I thought it'd be fun to take a stroll down memory lane. I've asked the ladies what some of their favorite posts through the years have been. (Better get to thinking--I'm gonna ask y'all that question too. :) )

Here's a small sampling of favorites our contributors chose:
Crystal, age 2

How about some stats?


The Top Three Posts of Aug 2016 were:
  1. Celebration Month Fun Quiz!
  2. Time for a Birthday Scavenger Hunt!
  3. Mercy! How Giving God Glory Embarrassed Me!
The Top Five Posts through Stitches' History are:

So tell us, do you have a favorite post from the past? What about the future--is there some topic or book or author you'd like to see on Stitches Thru Time in the coming year? What is your favorite type of post here on STT?


Be sure to leave a comment. One of this post's participants will get a book of choice from Amber Schamel's prize vault. Also, TODAY is the LAST DAY to get YOUR NAME IN THE HAT for this month's GRAND PRIZE DRAWING of the AMAZON KINDLE! Tomorrow, we'll be having a special post to announce the grand-prize winner so be sure to come back and see us, ya here. :)

  12. I haven't been with Stitches Thru Time from the very beginning but I look forward to reading it each day, or sometimes hinge reading if I get behind. I enjoy the posts relating to history and I also enjoy seeing the recipes and craft projects that are often contributed but the best posts are those that offer inspiration and support through God's Word.
    Congratulations again and I am sure the best is yet to come!
