12 Day's of Christmas Stitchery and another Giveaway!
Well, we made it. The 12 Day's of Christmas little mystery stitchery on my website started the day after Thanksgiving and ended Tuesday. Each day the participants collected another little piece of the project. Then.... due to me running behind and fessing up that I was only one day ahead of the participants, (naughty) and it was raining, and it was dark and I had to work my construction job for two days so I couldn't take a decent picture because it was dark, I couldn't unveil the finished project until today when I could take a picture and finish sewing on the pom pom fringe. So here it is. The 12 Day's of Christmas Stitchery made into a pillow with pom pom fringe and pearl beads. I'm so delighted with it and I hope everyone that participated had a good time.
I used this beautiful Valdani 3 strand floss. The color is called Heavenly Hue. I chose this color because my Cutie Grammy left for Heaven on August 26 this year. She had the most beautiful ice blue eyes and her favorite color was blue.
This picture below is in 2007 (90 years old) when she came to visit with me, David and the bunnies.
I made this mystery stitchery in her honor and in her memory.
(I love you cutie.. I'll have a blue Christmas without you)
So, in her honor and in her memory and for all my loyal blogging friends and my wonderful customers, I'm going to have a giveaway. Stitching relieves so much stress and helps me get through things because I can focus on creating. I've decided I am going to give away an entire kit to create this project. One lucky winner will get the linen, the floss, a hoop, the fleece, the fringe, the needles, the pearls, the pen and all the patterns. Everything except the stuffing for the pillow.
All you have to do is leave a comment. If you participated and collected all the patterns, please let me know. I'm so darn curious to see how many people got them. I'll draw the winner's name on Sunday so I can mail out the kit on Monday.
Good luck and happy stitching!
