Gifties for Friends and Giveaway

 I wanted to share with all of you a couple of gifts I made for friends/followers.  I made this scissor fob for Chris of Tot Hill Farm Stitches when she won a blog contest.  I included lots of black and white themed items and made a co-ordinating scissor fob for her. 
These are glass beaded counting pins that I made for Teresa of Heartfelt Stitches.  I had sent her the Kitty Quilt charts and made these pins for her.  Her favorite color is pink and she loves hearts so I thought she would enjoy these.
So, in the spirit of giving I have decided to make an initial scissors fob for 1 lucky follower as well as 5 sets of counting pins for 5 lucky followers.  Since March is a big birthday month in our family I will draw names on March 1st.  Here's what you need to do.  Become a follower, and leave a comment telling me you would like to enter.  I would love for you to post it on your blog to spread the word.  Do leave your favorite color in your post and be sure I have a way to contact you if you are the winner.  Good Luck and Happy Stitching!

Your things are cute Nataly. I love the fob you made. (I don't use one, but I love the one you made. If I got one, I'd probably hang it, lol.) Great job!

Christina said...

Nataly - I love your pins and have already used all of the pins you sent for me in the Stitched with Love exchange! They really finish off an ornie. If I were lucky enough to win my favourite colour is purple.

Oh, what fun!

I think I am a follower...I will double check again later. It looks like your follower area might be busy right now, or something. I will also post to my blog.

I love both the pins and the fob. My favorite color combos are pastel blues and greens or pastel mauves and greens.

I think I might have told you this before, but I visit your blog half a dozen times a day because you have a great list of blogs you are following...I just go from there.

Happy Monday!

~ the narcoleptic needleworker ~ said...

Oh, those are BEAUTIFUL ... I hope it's not too late to drop my name in the hat. I've been visiting your blog for a while, but am a follower as of now. No blog by me yet - I'm severely narcoleptic which limits my time, & so far I'd rather stitch or read a stitching-related blog than write one myself. :) My favorite colors are probably purple/red/pink, but I also believe variety is the spice of life - so if I'm one of the fortunate winners, please feel free to put your own artistic designing skills to use. :) Thank you for the opportunity, and thanks also for writing such an interesting blog! ~ Heather
