Giveaway & Castles Update

I had a very busy weekend (we hosted a dinner party, had a few friends over on Friday and ran a ton of errands on Saturday, then Sunday watched football, go Saints!). Therefore I got almost no stitching done. However I did continue with trying to get a few stitches into Castles. Here is a pic of the section I'm working on (it's the Peacock):




And here is the entire piece to date (the colour is more accurate in the top one, that brown hand-dyed colour is the true fabric colour, sorry this one didn't work out so well):




Alright... and *finally* the giveaway!
I wanted to offer a giveaway to thank everyone for their support over the last year since I came back to the blogging world. I also hit 100 posts (with this one I think) and now have more than 105 followers! I love all of your comments and really appreciate it! So thank you so much!!!

Here is how it works:
1) You have to be a follower of my blog
2) You have to make a comment on this post (and only this post) that you want to be entered.
3) Please make sure you have an email address attached with your profile or that you post it in your comment (you can leave spaces for spam block if you want).

What do you win?
a) 12"x12" piece of 32 count Belfast linen
b) Black Swan pattern Sweetheart Rose
c) Petite beads in clear white (suitable for the beads on Sweetheart Rose)
d) A backing pattern in pink with white polka dots.
Here is a picture of all the goodies:


Again thank you so much for visiting and best of luck to everyone! I will draw the winner Thursday night and post on Friday morning.

I worked on Castles this weekend too! I got the 2 peacocks done, but not the fountain. Your white *water* stands out much better than mine will on the pale blue fabric I am using! Congrats to the Saints!
