I've got just a few finishes to share with you all today!
(and the winners of giveaway packages are at the end of the post).
First up I'd love to share with you my finish of Jeanette Douglass' "Take Time for Friends" piece. I LOVED working on this piece. So much that I'm going to start Once Upon a Tree when I get the fabric I ordered. I just love all her neat little stitches and the way it all stitches up. This didn't take me long at all to complete. On 32 ct linen using the thread pack:
Next up I did up a bunch of ornaments and items for a friends fundraiser. The basket included some homemade Christmas cards I made and other sweet goodies (Including a framed picture of one of my BFs amazing frost photographs). The basket brought in $70 which made me happy! These are all the ornaments I finished up for it:
In other news... the piece that I donated to JDRF (juvenile diabetes research foundation), my Cheryls Bouquet that won ribbons this past year in competition brought in $275!!! I am so pleased with that. :) And now it hangs in some strangers home. A bit odd, lol, but I'm so happy I gave it away. (but kept the ribbons of course)
And the reason you're all here... to see if you won!
As I said in my previous post, everyone got entries for doing specific things. How I do it is that for each entry you get a number, then I just go to a random number generator online and it picks my winners.
2) Nancy (little bit of stitching)
3) Linda (Blu)
If each of you can please contact me (or answer the email I sent you) and let me know some of your likes, ie: butterflies, dragons, hearts, turtles, religious, beaches etc. Whatever it is you like to stitch the most and I am going to put together packages that are unique for each person (and hopefully to their taste!).
Later this week: I'm got exciting news for later this week. I've got a dragons page finish! But I didn't want to overload this post... so I'm saving it for a few days from now. So be sure to come back and check it out, I'm over the halfway point in the dragons piece now!
