Giveaway Winner!

Okay--so I got busy doing finances, and then was too tired to play on the web! I am sorry for the delay in picking a winner! So, without further ado--the winner by random drawing is Vicki!! Please email me with your address, and I will send out your prizes this weekend!

Thanks to everyone that entered! I am currently working on an exchange piece, My Big Toe "A New Day" (One of TWO I have to do by Christmas!) and LK's "Peace, Love and a Cure" which I am going to try to make into a flatfold. We shall see! My Challenge pieces are not going to get much attention as I have lots of obligation stitching to finish before them. Sigh...I will try to post pics tonight.

I started to feel a little bit better this past Sunday, and it has continued--probably down from a constant 5 to a 2!! NO THANKS to any of the doctors I saw and have to see! But don't get me started...

Gotta run! Work is calling!

Hugs, Maggee

Finishes and a Giveaway

I have done some finishing and finished some stitched projects. Cannot show all of them, as some are exchanges, but there are a few!

First I finished Bee Sampler by LHN. It has gone out as a RAK, and she should get it this week. I think it is pretty cute! Love the mini rick-rack by R&R!

Next I finally made Jolly Holiday by Lizzie Kate into a cube! This is my second cube--the first is coming later in this post. I have ribbon for a bow, but don't like it and may shop for something different.

Then I have stitched two pieces for the Pumpkin Patch Breast Cancer Blog (see my sidebar) and ultimately for the Breast Cancer Auction Jean holds at The Attic in the fall. I haven't decided how I am going to finish-finish them yet.

And today I finished stitching Cast Your Cares by My Big Toe Designs! One of the Up for a Challenge pieces! Yay! I am going to get it framed and give it to our Aunt Mabel, who has dropped hints about receiving a stitched piece from me! Finished my patriotic piece by Blue Heron designs into a cube--my first! I followed the great instructions given by Vonna on her finishing tutorials blog.

And I finished the tiny Freedom stitched piece into a pin cushion! Unfortunately, the picture of the back fabby is blurry--I may take another picture tomorrow...

I have stitched, finished and given my PIF's to their recipients already, but forgot to take pictures! So, I went back and got one... so far! This piece is by Barbara Ana Designs, and it suited the stitcher perfectly. Word has it that Darlene went to Woodstock, and she loves butterflies. A fun pairing!

Now, to the Giveaway! July 25th is Threading the Needle Day, and in honor of this Great Holiday, I am having a Giveaway! I am giving away the chart for Cast your Cares by My Big Toe Designs AND a piece of 32-count Antique White Linen 13 X 15 which should be large enough to stitch it on! To be entered in the Giveaway, you must be a regular follower; and in your post to enter, you must divulge one thing about you that is little known by most people around you! For instance, you also went to Woodstock or something like that! It is all in fun, so do not worry if you get stuck! I will draw a name on the 25th, after dinner.

Thanks for reading if you got this far!

Hugs, Maggee
