snowbound finish & giveaway

I spent my snowbound time stitching to good effect. I was able to get this project finished while watching movies on the laptop, drinking tea, enjoying the birds on the feeder and the beautiful snow (which is melting fast).

Now for the giveaway. If you don’t mind hand-me-downs, I’m giving away a cut of the gingham linen along with the used thread pack from my project (it includes the colors I substituted to match the linen better). Please leave a comment about adding your name to the hat for this drawing, the winner will be drawn and announced on the next Rocky Mountain Wednesday post.

  30. Please add me to your drawing! I love pink and it was my favorite color as a little girl. Then I thought pink wasn’t cool enough so for years I really loved blue, but now I think pink is where my heart is, so pink is again my favorite color!

  31. I love this on the Gingham Fabric. I wouldn’t have thought to use it but it turned out lovely.
    Please add me to the drawing.

  32. Mary Kathryn, I love this on the pink gingham! I would love to be entered into your giveaway. With the grey days we’ve been having lately this is such a delight to see.

  33. i would have never thought to stitch it on gingham .. it is absolutely darling and pink is one of my favorites .. count me in on your drawing! karen ca

  34. Mary Kathryn,your work is truly inspirational! My sister bought me one of your beautifully-stitched pillows as a birthday gift a couple of years ago and it takes pride of place in my TV room on a little side table. I’m sure I’m too late for your give-away draw as I wasn’t quite sure what you meant by the next ‘Rocky Mountain’ Wednesday post.This may sound naive but I imagined you snowed in and unable to get to the P.O. If it was just one week later,then I am well and truly too late, but if it’s TWO weeks, then maybe I still have a chance….. Please enter me. Regards from sunny Cyprus, Eva.
