A Finish and A Giveaway!



This sweet little finish was completed at retreat and is called Harvest Moon. It is by Threadwork Primitives . I am not quite sure about how I will finish this yet. It was stitched on a scrap piece of overdyed fabric with Weeks threads. Retreat was fun and relaxing. The best part was spending time with good people who love needlework as much as I do! Alas, forgot I my camera so no pictures.

Now, I hinted at a giveaway the last time I posted and I thank you all for the comments on my finish and more importantly my 20 years of nursing which officially was October 16th. So to honor that milestone I am going to give away the following. In order to participate-please just leave a comment and indicate which give away you would like to win. You may put your name in all three. I will draw using the random number generator. It is not necessary to post it to your blog. Please leave an email address where I can contact you in case you win. Good luck and thanks again for all your visits, comments and friendship.Comments will close Sunday night and I will draw the winner's on Monday afternoon October 25th.
