Mystery Stitchery Reveal and Winners!

During the week of July 20 through July 26, I participated in Make Mine Pink's shop hop.
I thought it would be fun to do a free Mystery Stitchery. Each day the participants would visit my website and collect their free stitchery pattern. After collecting them all, anyone that wanted to enter for prizes would have until yesterday, Aug 10 to finish at least the "stitching" and send me a photo. I would then pick 3 names from the list of participants and award any pattern from my site along with a bag of fusible fleece.

I'm delighted with the results. I know there were many that joined in for the patterns, but only 5 were able to complete the project. So even though I said I would pick 3 names, I'm going to award all 5 participants! I'm so glad they had fun and enjoyed making my pattern. I'll be in touch with each of you regarding your prize!

Here are the finished pieces. You can click on each image to enlarge.

This first piece is mine. Of course, I had to bling mine up a bit and give it a mixed media look. I'll be posting it for sale on my site later if you're interested. The wooden decorative piece up top has a hanger on the back so you can just hang it up.

This next piece was made by Margaret Bouwmeester. Hop over and visit her blog if you get a second. She is an incredible bear and bunny artist in Canada! I loooove her work! I love all the little extra things Margaret did, like the bling around the snowflake and the added dimension of the berries. Clever!

This piece was made by Linda Livingston. She purchased Valdani Floss from me and used it in her beautiful creation. I love the extra beading throughout the piece.

Next is this elegant "Blue Christmas" piece made by my dear friend and quilt guild member, Peggy Geier. I'm in love with the tone on tone elegance of this piece and the subtle bling she added with the beads!

This next piece was made by Kathie Bogue, a member of my quilting guild. The fabrics and floss colors she used make me want a cup of hot chocolate with friends to celebrate a country Christmas!
This last piece was made by fellow quilting guild member, Gerri Olvaney. I like how she used all the same background fabrics and I love the white of the snowflake (hard to see in this photo). I imagine her piece being finished into a pillow. (just a thought). :)

Well there you have it! Congratulations to all of you and thanks so much for participating!
I'll be posting more free patterns on my site starting in September. So hop over and visit with me.

What beautiful pieces everyone made. I will have to look for all my sewing and embroidery items and try this one day, they are gorgeous and the one thing that I remember from trying these with my Ita (grandma) is that it really relaxed me...well till I kept making mistakes :) Rose

What fun and lovely sticheries. Everyone did an awesome job. And how sweet of you to award them all.
I just read Sugar part 2 and wanted to say I am glad she is fitting in. I am totally fascinated with Bunnyville. I love all your bunn bunn (what my grandson calls them) posts. Thanks for sharing bunnyville and bringing back some wonderful memories for me.
Have a Blessed Friday,
