A Sentimental Journey Block 11 and a Giveaway

Wow! Is it really November???? Didn't I just say the same thing last month?  So how have you been doing with your blocks? I know some of you have been keeping up. (Di, that would be you!) We're almost there. Next month we will have our last block and the finished project! I can't wait to show you!

Ok, so onto this months block. My word for this month was Give. I think this quote is one of my all time favorite quotes. I truly believe that you don't have to be rich to be a giving person. We all have wonderful gifts we can give to one another. It can be something as small as a handwritten note or a cup of tea. The simple things in life matter most and we really do make a life by what we give.

So go to my Shop and get your design. Have fun stitching this quote and don't forget, you can still collect all the quotes. They will remain there until January 1st.

The floss color this month is Valdani O514, wheat husk or P4, Aged White Light

Now on to the giveaway! This month I thought it might be fun to give away something I made. I've been so excited about how my little jingle trees turned out for the show that I thought I would give one away to you. So, just leave a comment on this post. As always, if you are a follower of my blog (sign up on the right) you get two chances. Tell me you're following. I will pick the winner this Saturday, November 6th.

Good luck and happy stitching!
xx,
shell, sugie and harrington

Good Morning Shell Sweetie...
I love the jingle trees, please enter my name into the giveaway. They are so refreshing. I am a follower for sure.

You left a message on my blog about some bunny figurines. I didn't receive an e-mail sweetie, and I am sorry but I don't know anything about bunny figurines. It must be one of your other Sherry bloggers. Sorry sweetie.

Have a gorgeous Tuesday. Many hugs and much love, Sherry
