GIVE~AWAY TIME ~ ~ ~

Thank you so much for dropping. In appreciation of all my blog buddies, I am having a little give~away. I just finished this little cross stitch piece and decided to make it in to a little pillow. The pillow did not come out quite as good as I had hoped ~ but better than I had anticipated. It has been YEARS ~ many, many ~ since I've even sewn anything as basic as this pillow! It is a chart I purchased probably 20+ years ago. The company was Hand Dids and the designer is Merrilyn Fedder. The pillow is a more coffee stained color than appears in the picture. It is approximately 6" x 6", backed with wool and stuffed with snippets for a lumpy feel. {{The Santas are not included.}}
Now for the fine print -
  • You don't have to be a follower but I really would appreciate it!
  • Leave me a comment on this post or drop me an email with "give~away" in the subject line so I'll be sure to see it. If you don't have a blog or are commenting as anonymous, be sure to leave me an email address.
  • I'll pick the recipient Sunday evening at 6pm.
  • You are welcome to post this on your blog, but that does not give you another entry :)

Pug hugs :)
Lauren

Good morning Lauren...oh my how I'd love to add this hand did piece to my holiday decorating...what a beautiful pillow and I see no problems with it.

Have a wonderful day.
