My First Year Blogaversary Giveaway~~and some weekend progress!

I had been working hard last week on making some new pincushions..... I pulled out all my freebie patterns and stitched up a few in my favorite red threads..... Then slip stitched the sides together....


Stuffed them with crushed walnut shells and Poof!! We have little pincushions perfect to have on your side table, in your sewing area or to be used when traveling...they are only about 2-3 inches square and really come in right handy~~

Here is their back sides....Not quite as much stitching on the backs..... So, you see, I did do a little finishing this weekend...


And, here is what I would like to give away on May 30st in honor of my first year in the blog world..... I love working up anything Quaker, so I am including the Loudoun Sampler Guild Anniversary Tool Pouch by Barbara Bernard...I am also including"Love Letters" by Country Stitches~With thy Needle & Thread... Along with some Victorian Motto Sampler Thread....and one of my previously mentioned pincushions....I even made up some beaded pins which will be included...... So, here's the deal.... Comment on this post only between now and May 30th for a change to have your name in the drawing! That's all you have to do~~~

Congratulations on the anniversary of your blog. I have really enjoyed your posts.
Great idea with the freebie charts. They are wonderful and look great together, love the buttons. I would love to be included in the drawing fun. I was looking at the quaker pattern on a blog this weekend but they didn't identify anything about it. May be I will be lucky enough to win it from you. Look forward to reading more of your great blog and seeing what you are inspired to stitch.
