Happy Wednesday to you, dear friends!
Many thanks to all of you who entered my Giveaway!!
I truly enjoyed reading each of your comments and special Christmas stocking memories!!
Some of them made me smile, a few tugged at my heartstrings, one made me laugh out loud and all of them were a pleasure to read and I thank you for sharing them!! Though some of you didn't actually have stockings, you began the tradition and passed it on!!
I wish I could gift each one of you something, but sadly could only choose one winner!
After putting each name in a random name picker, the winner is-
Congratulations to you and please contact me with your address so I can get the stocking mailed to you!!!!
Thank you all again so much for entering! Your kind words, comments, and stories truly warmed my heart!!!
I am still slowing working on my Old Cat punchneedle piece and the operative word is
S L O W!!!
Not much to share with you, but I am really liking the background so far!!
I added some darker brown squiggly spots and am loving how it is blending with the lighter brown!
Normally I would punch the cat first, but am still deciding on colors, so will just keep going with the background and keeping mulling color choices!!!
Then I need to move on to Turkeys and Tallowberries, as I have been wanting to make that design for some time and love all the different versions I have been seeing others punching or hooking!!! Such a fun design by Lori of Notforgotten Farm!!!
I collect Stone Fruit (when I can find it inexpensively) and recently found a wonderful Persimmon!
(What do you think, Lauren?)
I just love the color of this and that stem is amazing!!!
Do any of you collect Stone Fruit?
Speaking of fruit, I added Lauren's wonderful paisley strawberry to my wire basket of cloth fruits and veggies!
It fits in perfectly among the other pieces!!! Thanks again for this lovely gift, Lauren!!
I have been busy creating new items for an upcoming update and hope to post more about those things soon!!! Please be sure to check back from time to time!!!!
The temperatures are FINALLY cooling off here in Arizona and I am just loving the cool mornings during my walk!! Hope the weather is lovely where you are, too!!!
Wishing you a Beautiful and Creative Day, my friends~
