PIF partners needed!

Since I was one of the lucky ones to win in Edgar's PIF, I must now set up my own. So, I am looking for THREE (3) followers that would like to join in and "Pay it Forward". Here are the guidelines: I will commit to a stitchy gift for THREE (3) different people in the next year. Then, these 3 people must also agree to hold their own PIF on their blog and ask for 3 people to join in with them, thus 'Paying it Forward'! To be considered, please leave a comment on THIS post only! If there are more than 3 stitchy people interested, I will have a random drawing. That's it! This is a fun way to get to know three people, that you may not have even met! Could be the start of a lasting friendship... Hugs!

More finishes

Hello! I had a time of 'finishing' and got almost all my pieces completed. First is a door hanging of the Breast Cancer Awareness Angel: Then is Thankful by Primitive Betty's (that pumpkin button is quite cute, with a heart in the middle, but my picture is fuzzed out): Next is Pumpkin Visitor as a pin pillow: And Give Thanks by The Stitcherhood finished as a little pin cushion: And last--I made a quirky little sampler small, that I did a while ago, into a mattress pincushion (lots of hand sewing here!): I like that mattress finish. It was a challenge, counting over and over so as not to find a mistake at the end, but I still liked it. Going to do more of them in the future! I am holding at 98 followers, so I am still thinking about ideas for the Giveaway! Stay tuned! Hugs.

A few finishes...

Hello! I have a few pieces that I finished stitching last week, and want to share... First is 'Autumn', a free chart by The Stitcherhood, that I finished into a pin pillow. It is just as small as the summer one, about 6" long by about 1.5 inches tall. Cute! Next is 'Give Thanks' by The Stitcherhood also. It is VERY tiny--about 1.5" X 3" !! It is really cute, and I think I will make it a flatfold... we shall see... Next is my annual Breast Cancer Awareness piece. It is also a free chart that I found in my wanderings... but cannot find the link now. I will make this into a door hanging for my office at work, since I am the token survivor. Don't forget to enter my Giveaway--it ends Tuesday! Did you see that I have been a winner lately? I am one of the winners for Edgar's PIF (Pay it Forward), so I must PIF in return! I will announce about that after the giveaway... I look forward to receiving something stitchy from Edgar in the next year! I am almost at 100 FOLLOWERS! That just amazes me! So, I will have to do something special when I reach that magical number... hmmmm.... Well, got to get laundry out of the dryer and then I may get to stitch finally! Hugs.
