Having a "Chilly" giveaway

I am having a giveaway for the "Chilly Winter" cross stitch chart. 
If you would like to leave me a comment I will add your name to the hat and have the drawing on Sunday

I made a couple of more wool/feather trees last week. 
I thought a bit of spring color or actually Valentines Day colors would be a nice change. 
An 8 inch pink tree and a 12 inch dark mauve tree.

The house needed a bit of cheer and I had a package of buttons that I purchased at Camp Wool that were just calling for a use. 
I made this small wool mat for the trees.
I am loving the cheerfulness :)
For all those that have signed up for the "Serenity Harbor Sampler" and like to use Facebook 
 Mo has formed a Facebook Group.
I am thanking her for this becasue I am so new to Facebook that I still do not know what I am doing yet!
If you would like to join the Group please sign into your Facebook, look up the group name 
"Serenity Harbor Sampler SAL" and she said she would be glad to help. 
so a BIG THANK YOU to Mo

Deb sent me an email and shared a picture of her finish of Funky Flower Meagan. She used DMC Variations and Mill Hill beads. Her fabric was a light lemon yellow. Love the beads with a bit of sparkle.
And then she finished it Yeah!! Great Job

New Design For a "Chilly Winter"

I just finished these today. A couple of chilly winter scenes along with the word "Winter"
I stitched these on 32ct Dove Gray from Wichelt Imports. The charts are on the way to the printer and will be ready by Monday. I love the way the word Winter came out. The stitch count is 81 x 37 and it stitched up pretty quickly. It think I will try to needle-pointed it on a larger canvas and hang it over a door.
Its pretty dreary here today, no sun again, maybe tomorrow :)
Have a Thankful Thursday
