Greetings from soggy California! As with last week, I have been stitching on exchange pieces so I dont' have a lot to show, but I did hear from my partner in the BBD exchange that she has received my offering, so I can finally show off my first finish of the year.
This is BBD's "Summer Iris" without the border and the little birds and with the addition of some vintage buttons, done on Silkweavers evenweave with the recommended floss. I decided to make another attempt at making a fabric-covered box, which turned out much better than the last box in that it actually can be opened and closed without the use of pulleys or pliers or other similar instruments...
And since I have nothing else to show, on to the winner of giveaway #2: I used a random number generator this time to come up with the winner, Hazel! I will send you an e-mail later and get this out in the mail as soon as I can swim to the post office.
I am planning other giveaways since I still cannot see the bottom of my stash basket, but I have not had time this week to dig through it to see what's there--but it will be coming soon! I have been itching to break the first of my new year's resolutions and start something new--I have two gorgeous Quakers all kitted up--maybe I will have some stitching of my own to show in my next post. Until then, stay dry/warm and thank you for all the comments!
