12 of Hearts BOM and a Giveaway! Yipee!

Hi everybun! I have to say, each month I am having more and more fun with this project! I have already stitched up to June and I've made 2 of each block!

Here is this months Block

The floss color this month is Valdani's O196 Muddy Bark. I just got another shipment of floss before the prices go up, so you can Get the Floss Kit Here. Remember, I also sell the linen, needles, hoops and Pigma pens. You can join in anytime!

This is what it looks like so far. Yes, I covered up May and June. No peeking! hee,hee,hee.

Now, let's talk about a giveaway shall we!

Remember I've been showing you little sneaky peeky's of my new quilt pattern? Well, the quilt is at the Lea's, my long arm quilter, being quilted right now. I'm in the process of writing up the pattern while it's with Lea.  I had soooooo much fun making the pattern, that I decided to make a pillow for this months giveaway!

So here ya go! The giveaway is a quilted pillow that matches my upcoming quilt pattern! See the little bunny head and the big giant ears? He's sneaking around in the flower garden looking for a sneaky snack! Fun huh? It's almost Easter Bunny time and this kinda bunny is less messy than the one's that dig and have a party in the litter box! Harrington!!! And you won't have expensive vet bills with this mischievous little bun!

To enter the giveaway, please leave a comment on this post. As always, our followers (sign up on the right) are treasured friends and they get two chances! The winner will be chosen by the random number generator on Monday, April 18th. Everyone worldwide is more than welcome to enter. We are delighted to have friends in other countries!

Well get to stitchin and have some fun! I do hope you are enjoying these little hearts so far.
xx, shell, sugie and harrington

Following? I'm beyond that, I'm working on stalking. ;)

Love the pillow, can't wait to see the quilt. Bunnies that do not need to have their butts washed first thing in the morning (unlike certain orange furballs that I know) are A-OK in my book. :)

Hi shell,
I love give-a-ways!!! You do beautiful work!!! I love to see your things you are working on. I use to sew all the time but now a days I can't see really well enough and I can't remember so much of how to do what was so easy for me just 10 years ago. I am sliding down the hill to 76 years old!!! I am going to put a quilt on my blog that I think is the most beautiful one I have ever seen on Friday!! Don't miss seeing it shell.
xx, Fern

Hi Shell...cute cushion...love the fabic you've used for the bunny...and the sweet little flowers in the corners...(you know I'm a stalker)...

Kathy said...

I love the simplicity of your stitchery-it makes it possible for anyone to do. I have done redwork and often shy away because it is too involved and I know I won't get it completed.This one I would.
Kathy

Linda (Petey) said...

So nice to 'see' you again! It's very interesting to follow your design process and love the colors you put together. (I've used paint chip families to have students do degrees of synonyms!) Love the pillow! You gave the zip to finish this week...thanks!
