thursday = embroidery

Congratulations Hanna {last comment of the day} - you are Wednesday’s winner!

Hanna is in New Zealand so very sorry, but overseas comments are now closed.

Here we are at embroidery day, which must mean its Thursday!

Today’s giveaway includes several Vogart envelopes {duplicates of other patterns I have & not all there – sorry!}, an embroidered pillowcase I thrifted as well as some practice embroidery I did long ago that I hope someone craftier than I can figure out something to do with.


And here is the ring:


I am so loving the week of embroidery – running around to different blogs to see what they posted each day, so fun! Here’s my contribution for today:

And finally an interesting test to determine what woodland creature you are {found via lisa’s blog}.

I was not a doe…

Is it even necessary for me to say how GREAT this giveaway is? Whoever gets this package is one lucky crafter! *Fingers crossed*

Will you just open an Etsy shop already? Your rings are gorgeous, and so are your photos, they'd sell for sure!

I was waiting for the embroidery day. Vintage patterns that you have introduced to me. I am fascinated by it. I do not stitch, but have started using for my painting :D.

I'm a badger too. Do badger's hang out in groups? Probably small groups, huh?

Also the green ring? Fantastic. I'm slightly obsessed with green and yellow right now. Probably because it's been such a long, gray winter.

If you don't sell them would you do a tutorial on them maybe and let us in on your ring making methods?
