The Winner & Etsy

Should I tease you first... another page in dragons is done. However I need to get a picture tonight in order to show you... but it's done and you will see it soon! :)

I have some exciting news to share. I have set-up an Etsy store and it's live and running right now!
The items up there are ones that haven't seen the light of the day as they have been living protected in a drawer. I love them all I just don't have a "purpose" for them. So why not see if I can find them a good home right?
I also did up a new little piece that I love. Having this store will allow me to do up pieces that I want to do even when I don't have a "purpose or home" for them. Which is awesome. (and if they never sell then that's okay as at least I tried and they didn't just live in my drawer forever)
You can visit my store at: www.etsy.com/shop/epicstitching

The new piece in there is from Cricket Collection. It's on lovely 28ct Haunted linen from Picture this Plus. I used different hand-dyed threads from my stash to complete it. This is "Man in the Moon":

 


And now for the information many of you are waiting for... 
The winner of the Kumihimo bracelets is: 

Denise from Ohio

Congratulations my dear, if you could please email me your address and what size of bracelets would be best I will get them on their way to you!

In other news I started my April cottage today and will have an update of it soon (and of course my promised dragon picture). I will also see if I can snag some pics of my babies (the snakes) sometime soon as well. Thanks for all your lovely comments on the bracelets and baby sampler. I need to put some more stitches into the sampler soon too!  (oh and I have a Sweetheart tree quadrilateral to work on as well for a wedding... I'm afraid of it as it's got complicated instructions so we'll see how it goes)

Congrats on getting your etsy store set up. I was a bit afraid of my first Sweetheart tree project (not a quad), too. Just take it step-by-step and you'll be fine.

Man in the Moon is really neat. Cool about the Etsy store, when I have pieces that I don;t have a home for I usually sell them on e-bay.

Congrats on finishing "Man in the Moon". I wish I was putting together a nursery; it would be a perfect piece to have framed on the wall :)
