It's time to announce the winners of my giveaway.
First prize goes to Debbie
Second prize goes to Kaye
Congratulations to both of you! I'll mail your gifts as soon as I have your mailing address.
Thanks to everyone who entered. Hopefully I'll do another giveaway before too long.
On to other things..........
I finally finished long term UFO Sanctuary by The Drawn Thread. I've been looking longingly at everyone's new year starts and finishes but knew that I had to bite the bullet and focus on this piece. Here it is stitched on Elegant Bean linen using NPI SILKS.
Here's a close up of each of the four quadrants. I think the pictures should enlarge if you click on them.
Now to show you some gifts I have received that never made it onto the blog before now.
There are two new mermaids in my collection. The first is a beautiful pinkeep stitched for me by dear friend Hazel (no blog) in the UK
The other is a gift from friend Angela and also in UK. It's hard to get a good picture of this mermaid as she is made of clear glass but take my word for it she's gorgeous.
Finally these lovely gifts came from Sandra in UK.
I absolutely love the sewing machine thread holder and the gorgeous quilting fabric. There is also a FQ of cream evenweave.
Sandra doesn't have a blog but she has the most awesome Picasa album
Take a look and prepare to be blown away.
That's all I have to show this time but I'll be back soon with pictures of the latest bag I'm making.
The new word verification thing on Blogger is driving me demented so I have changed my setting to moderated comments so that you don't have to be bothered with trying to read unintelligble script.
As always many thanks for visiting and for your encouraging comments.
