Final Giveaway for 2008!

In honor of my birthday tomorrow and in the Spirit of Christmas, I'm offering my final giveaway for 2008! I finished up this ornie...

Believe freebie by

The Sampler Girl found here

fabric: 32ct lambswool linen

fiber: DMC 347


A cute Moda flannel on the back :)


And here's everything you'll get: The ornament, a sweet tin filled with an assortment of jingle bells and red buttons, and a fat quarter of a white and red Moda evenweave. (This fabric was sold as quilting fabric, not cross stitch. But I checked, and it's around a 40ct, so it's possible to stitch on it if you have a magnifier or very good eyes!)


So tell me, have you been naughty or nice??? Just leave a comment (and an email address) on this post only to be entered in the drawing. And hurry, you've only got 48 hours!!! I'll draw a name Thursday evening......Good Luck!!!

I visit your blog often, it makes me feel good. Actually I've been naughty and nice. I guess I've been cross stitch nice, I've brought several people back to the this wonderful pass time. So it's a toss up. I would so like to be entered into this drawing. I LOVE polka dots and 40 count fabrics.

Thank you for your blog!

Happy birthday! What a wonderful giveaway! Please put my name in the hat! I know what you mean about those small counts for stitching, LOL. Those days are over for my poor eyes.

And I am nice when the occasion calls for it (very nice) and naughty when the occasion calls for it (heehee, wink, wink)!

Happy birthday to you! I have been both naughty and nice. What can I say, I like to have fun!

Jean said...

Oooooh..... naughty or nice? Can you be more specific??? If Santa is reading this - I've been really nice!! If anyone else is reading this and won't be a big blabbermouth, I'll admit to being a little bit naughty!!

I hope I win this wonderful give away. You are too sweet!

Have a blessed birthday. I wish you love and laughter all year long.
