Giveaway winner AND ANOTHER giveaway!

Hi there, and congratulations to Vickie!!  I'm excited to be offering this chart to you!  Please email me your address and I will get it in the mail shortly!  Vickie won this chart that I happened to have two of!

If you are disappointed that you didn't win, don't despair, I have another one waiting in the wings.  I will start by saying I am  just learning this new "craft" so please don't expect perfection.  In honor of my feeble attempt at "practicing" I'm going to give one of my new creations away.  

And....since fall is here, I thought I would celebrate that with something that goes along with the season.  It's a scissor fob!  I think I'll have the drawing on October 18.  All you need to do is leave a comment below indicating you would like to take part in the giveaway.  Below is a picture of what you could win...

I've been playing around with these and really enjoying the experience!  I've made one for myself...because I love owls.  

I've made a few for other exchanges I'm participating in...

And I've made a few for friends, but they will have to remain a mystery until I've given them away.

Now before you ask, I'm NOT a professional, and do NOT want to sell them.  I'm just playing around because I like to shake up my world now and then!  Hahaha  So.....if you would like to win this fun little scissor fob, please comment below...and tell your friends....who knows, I might want to make a few more and have some seasonal giveaways?!?!?!

Ok, I'll share a few pictures of projects I've been working on.  I finished up September's portion of the Linen & Threads SAL.  If you look back a few posts, I think I posted which colors I found that will substitute for the vintage Bucilla Thread I am using.  I'm stitching this on 28 ct black over one.  It's not too late to jump in on this free SAL.  You can find the patterns here.  Normally I don't have too much trouble but for some reason, September's portion was giving me quite a challenge.  Lots of frogs came to visit (is it frog hunting season yet, because I'm ready to annihilate those suckers!!) Maybe I need to make some adjustments to my reading glasses?

I finished up the 10th part of This Corner of Earth.  This is a SAL offered by Tempting Tangles.  I love her choice of colors and those little houses are just too much fun to stitch!!  I worked on this yesterday while on a stitch date with Awesome Astrid and the Lovely Ms. D.  What a fun afternoon full of giggles and chatting.  Thanks for hosting Astrid, and let's do this again soon!

 I started another Christmas ornament....I've stitched this one before, but this one is for an exchange.  I Love it, and I think I'll substitute a few little things here and there to make it a little more fun.  This is from the Hometown Holiday Series by Little House Needleworks.

Last, but not least, is the third part of the Summer Schoolhouse Lesson number 3 by With Thy Needle & Thread.  I'm loving this series!   This is stitched over one using the recommended threads.  Lesson 4 should be out soon!  Can't wait!!

Guess that's all the news that's fit to print.  I'll see you back here on the 18th for the reveal of who has won the fob.  Have a wonderful Sunday and happy stitching!!

You have been busy, Astrid is obviously a good influence!
The Linen & Threads is looking gorgeous despite the frogs.
I would love to win a spooky scissor fob, I have two but only two pairs of scissors so it would give me the perfect excuse to buy some more spooky scissors!
