The End of our Sentimental Journey has arrived.

I can't believe we are here. I can't believe it has been twelve months already! I sure have had a really fun time and I hope you have too. Thank you very much to all of you that purchased floss kits from me. The bunnies and I truly appreciate your support!

I try to be positive and happy every day that I can. It's not always easy, so I thought it would be great to create something to look at that would help just a little.

This is the finished piece. I have hung it in Bunnyville. You can hop over to my Shop for the final directions. It's a pocket quilt. I plan on using mine as a type of organizer for the year. In each pocket I will put cards for people with birthday's that month. I'll put clippings, emails, photos and any other happy things that happen throughout the year. I'll also read the quotes when I feel like a need a little pick me up.

I have truly enjoyed sharing this journey with all of you. I hope you have had a fun time too! What was your favorite quote?

As promised, I wanted to have another giveaway. I've decided to give you some winter wishes and so the giveaway is my finished Winter Wishes Stitchery all ready to hang for the winter! Just leave a comment on this post. Those who are signed up as followers get two chances! Remember to say you're following! The winner will be selected next Wednesday, December 22. Good luck!

Don't forget, the patterns will be available until January 11th. On January 12th, our new BOM "12 of Hearts" will start.

xx, shell, sugie and harrington

Ooooh, first! LOVE the pocket quilt! This time of year, it reminds me of an Advent calendar, only with half the pockets. :)

Commenting and following--and blogging about a very special giftie once I've posted here. :)

WHat a great idea to make it into a pocket quilt - I've enver seen anything like it! Your stitchery is beautiful and the "Wish" mini quilt is just lovely and perfect at this time of year.

I love the October quote by you,
give freely from the heart,
and February, Mother Teresa
do every small thing with great love
and January, unknown
Hope whispers try it one more time
Very Inspiring Shell!

and the Winter Wishes are very beautiful,
perhaps I should try my hand at stitching?

the pocket quilt is such a brilliant idea! and it looks perfect - it may even be perfect with a nibble or two as well :)

You do lovely white work ! I have a silly mini rex bunny. http://bunnythreads.blogspot.com/
