A Giveaway Win and a finish

Happy Friday Everyone!  I hope you will all get some stitching in this weekend.  I won Denise's Giveaway, well really I was runner up but she was too sweet and drew a second name and Voila!  I was the winner.  She sent along this adorable teddy bear "bearing" a visa gift card.  That will definitely come in handy to buy more stash. Thanks Denise.  Be sure to visit her blog Riverside Stitching and check out her lovely work.

On the Stitching front, I finished the stitching for my SAL with Carol.  We were working on Thistle Accessories by Jeannette Douglas and I finished the stitching over the weekend.  We will have a finishing day soon and I will post a pick.  I really love the colors, all purples and greens.  It is a really beautiful design.

This project concentrated on many specialty stitches and had some over one.  I am sad to see it end but excited to move onto the next project.  My next WIP in rotation is an acorn biscornu by Indigo Rose.  I will post a pic soon.  Happy Stitching!
