Hooked on Stitches Blogoversary Giveaway

A blog I discovered through Golden Angel Works is having a blogoversary giveaway of a lovely stitching by the owner of the blog Hooked on Stitches. Her name is Angela and she is giving away a choice of three different finishing techniques for a stiched piece by her if you follow her blog. Here is a picture of one of the finishing techniques you can choose:

It's a box. I think by far this is my favorite finishing technique she does out of the 3 she shows. Don't get me wrong I like the pillows and the flat-folds too, but there's something about having a box to put your stitching stuff in or a secret treasure. :-)

Keep On Stitchin'....

Scissors Fob Received in England

My Cross Stitch Forums Exchange Receiver received her fob on April 6th. I'm glad it arrived safely and intact there relatively quickly from the states :-). Here is a picture of the fob I sent:

Included in the package was a light yellow 28 Ct Jobelan and a Bunny cross stitch kit. I did the fob in Assisi and used an overdyed silk from Caron. I am enjoying my time as a member of the Cross Stitch Forums.

I'm sorry I'm late in posting this, but you must know that I've been sicker than a dog the last few weeks. Now I'm suffering from laryngitis and anyone I talk to on the phone now can distingush me from my family, yay, I think, lol.

Keep on Stitchin'....
