Winners, Stitching, and an Award

Hope your tax day is a super fantastic day. The random number generator picked #17 and #19 respectively as the winners for the giveaway. So congratulations to Carissa and Emily! Hope you enjoy your prizes. Thanks to everyone for joining in. :)

I did get a little stitching in this week. I finished these two scissor fobs for the giveaway; both are My Aunt's Attic designs using Silkweaver and Picture This Plus fabrics and Silk N' Colors threads.






I can also post this little BD gift for Mary now, as part of our ILCS Birthday Club. I love how it turned out. She said she liked animal prints, so this design was perfect. The design is from Cross Stitch Happy, compliments of Sharon. She has tons of wonderful freebies on her blog, so I'd encourage anyone to check it out. I changed this a little by just incorporating the design onto the type of needle book I wanted to stitch.


And lastly for today,Carolyn gave me an award; thank you, Carolyn!
"This blog invests and believes in the PROXIMITY-nearness in space, time and relationships. These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement! Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. "

I'm passing this award on to five others.....
