Giveaway Winner and Wooly Worms . . .

The winner of the giveaway is Teri from Dixie Sampler Designs. I have to say I am very luck to have met this woman (albeit through the internet only) and I would like to think I have come to be able to call her a friend. She recently finished my French Letters Bluebird and I love the way it came out. She stitched it on a larger count, 28 count I believe she said, which made it harder to finish into the little bluebird. I think he's precious and well worth a trip to her blog to see.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the giveaway, left me a comment or posted about it in their blog. I had a lot of fun with it and can't wait to do it again. I'm thinking Easter isn't too soon, is it?

Last week I ordered some wool strips. I saw them listed on Etsy and simply had to have them. Aren't the colors just perfect for Spring? I purchased several months ago some monk's cloth and an inexpensive hook; I just never got around to actually working on anything. I think these wooly worms are just what I need to finally get started. I have no design in mind but the colors look so lovely together I think any arrangement would look great. Any suggestions for someone who has never put wool to hook before?

I won??!! Oh my, thank you Jennie Lynn!! They are so beautiful, and I already know exactly where they will go, LOL! Thank you again for hosting such a wonderful and generous giveaway. Your friendship comments touched my heart...and, by all means, please call me friend as I do you.

Your sweet comments about Mr. Bluebird made me blush, LOL! He was a blast to stitch...but, yes, the finishing was a bit tricky on such a small, tiny fella!

Love the wool strips...they just look like a Spring day!

Happy Stitchin'
