12 of Hearts June Block and a Giveaway!

Hellooooooooo! Well we've made it through the first 6 months gang! Woo hoo! This is what we have so far.

Looks pretty doesn't it? I hope you are having fun with it. I already have July and August finished too and September is in the sketching phase.

This is the block for June. The floss color is Valdani H206, Washed Orange. Remember, you join this BOM anytime and I have the floss kits, needles, linen, etc. available in my SHOP. So hop over and get your pattern.
Now onto the giveaway. I've decided to celebrate this month since we are at the midway point. I wanted to have a special giveaway that would include not only my crafty friends, but my noncrafty friends as well. Soooooooooo, I've decided this month the prize would be my original Little Houses No. 1 wallhanging! You get the quilt and the hanger!

To enter, please leave a comment on this post. As always, if you are a follower of our blog and signed up on the right sidebar, you will get an extra chance! The random number generator will choose the winner on Friday, June 17th.

Good luck and happy stitching!

You know I love anything you make. And to win something that has already been made (instead of fabrics and patterns) is a real boost! I would feel like I had won a gift made especially for me. Just like buying something from the store, but yet it's handmade and made with love. It's beautiful and any one of your commenters would be thrilled to win it. Thanks for the giveaway.

I love that tree in the stitchery. It reminds me of the big elm that came down in a macroburst we had several years ago...God was so good to protect us and the house...all that tree damaged as it came down was a corner of the rain gutter! Simply amazing! That tree on it's side was taller than our two story house....a giant...I miss that tree! :( This little house wallhanging would bring me a wonderful memory of it :)
