"Box Of Summer "
Michelle decided to leave out the word "Summer" and add some clouds
so she could leave it up for a longer period of time!! Great idea
And she finished a free Summer Mystery Sampler that I had in 2012...She left the alphabet out because of the blue background.....Here is a link to that Mystery Sampler
I want to thank Michelle for sharing her work with us...I just love everyone's creativity!!! and I enjoy seeing the changes you make along the way.
I have a new Facebook Group for all of us that love to change things and be creative. If you are on Facebook the name of the group is "Handwork With Flax and Wool"
I only have 3 followers.....haha but it will grow !! Patience
I did the drawing this morning for the Bag Giveaway.....I printed off the names of everyone that left me a message and put them in my large popcorn bucket!!
And then I grabbed a piece of paper and the winner is.....
Marlene.....so Marlene if you could email me with your mailing address
I will send the bag out to you...
Congratulations!! and thank you to everyone that left me a message...it was great hearing from you again.....well I am off to do some cross stitching for a new design.....have a good day and maybe we can keep in touch in the Facebook Group too

Having a Giveaway !!
But first I am sharing a picture of this months free Affirmation Word "Peaceful".
The Newsletters have just gone out and include "Peaceful"....The punch needle angel is something I designed a few years ago but never made the directions yet to be released...I think I attempted them but life got in the way at that time and I actually forgot about her :(...But she has a good home now on my quilted wall hanging!!
And onto the GIVEAWAY!!
I had this bag made with the picture of "Heritage Homestead" added when I was still designing it ( not a picture of the completed design..just a work in progress)...so this is a one of a kind bag that measure 15 wide x 11 high...it has a very durable zipper and handle...made of a nice thick canvas, and can be used for a tablet, book, project bag, etc.......so if it sounds like I am doing a sales add...I am not...I am giving this bag away!!
Just leave me a small message on my blog .....I will have a drawing on Friday Dec 9th, and post the one lucky winner then :)
Good luck and may a stitchy person win!!
