friday = misc.

Congratulations Katherine {of kittens lost her mittens} - you are Thursday’s winner! {your blog giveaway must have given you good random number generator karma!}

{ please remember that overseas comments are closed}

I’m so glad to read in your comments that you guys pop in here & that you are enjoying the blog. I’m especially happy to hear that so many of you share my interest in embroidery & was really amazed at how many people commented! {You know I expect you to comment more often now that I know you’re out there…} I wish I could send you all something!

Since Friday is a Misc. day I tried to put together a mix of stuff for today’s giveaway:

I had yet another duplicate of that book – it scares me what lurks in the dark corners of our home! Petunia is another duplicate, some more fabric, another practice embroidery I did, some fun buttons and a plain felt bag ready to be made into something.

And I saved my favorite color for today’s ring:

I’m sad that Embroidery week is coming to an end. I’d like to thank Floresita & Pip for the genius idea & coordinating everything – thank you!

As usually Friday is the day I am running the latest so I have to dash – I will post today’s winner Saturday morning & next week we’ll be back to our regular posting schedule. Happy Friday…now where are the car keys?!

I love seeing these books! I actually have the BH&G book, and I love it.

And yes, as I recently posted on a Flickr image: Give it up for aqua. Best. Color. Ever. I painted the walls in my sewing room/office this color and loooooooooooove it.

Hooray for a week of embroidery love!

Penessa said...

Looks like another fun day! After I first saw your Better Homes and Gardens book, I searched for it on Ebay to no avail. But here's my chance!

Love the elephant pattern... I think I'll be using that one for Baby Brother (who is due anytime over the next month!).

wonderfull things, but i'm overseas in england so have to miss out. i just kept getting the timing wrong on this - checking before work didnt work as you hadnt posted yet!
it has been an interesting week getting to 'look inside' your cupboards at the lovely things you no longer need, but that others would find joy in owning.
rah for recycling!

Rebekah said...

That is the best ring so far. When are you going to start selling them? It is not fair to tease us.
