Two Finishes and a Giveaway...

I keep losing my stitching mojo!! Has anyone seen it?? I have put away so many WIPs... but I am currently working on a Thanksgiving piece, and I must do an Autumn piece for an Exchange, so... who knows? It could stick! I DID finish three pieces, two that I can show you! One is going to be for a Giveaway, at the end of this post... read on...

This is a design by My Big Toe called Stitching Buds that I love! Made it into one of my favorite finishes, the cube. Stitched on 40-count R & R Gardener's Blend, using random DMC threads.

I found the perfect backing fabric a couple of years ago for the little piece of linen I had, but never got around to stitching it until this year. Lace around the edges was a nice finishing touch.

Humble Spirits by Little by Little, a pattern that has been in my stash for quite some time! Used a piece of 36-count R & R Creme Brulee, and the called for DMC threads.
Finished it using a piece of vintage cloth from a former quilter's stash given to me last year. Made a wired handle covered in cloth also...wound around two mis-matched, overdyed buttons from Nancy at Victorian Motto. It's pretty cute!!

This coming Sunday, September 20th, is National Women's Friendship Day.

In honor of this little-known, but all-important day, I'm having a Giveaway! The objective of this day is to promote special friendship among women. If you are following my blog, you are a special friend to me! Post a comment, and you will be entered for the Giveaway! I will draw a name Monday, so be sure to come back to check if you have won! I made a special piece that I will send to you...along with...well, I haven't quite decided! Oh the suspense...

Well, have to move on to my other blog now... lots of birding pictures to share! It probably won't be posted until tomorrow!!
