I learned to embroider when I was a kid, when everyone was really into cross stitch (remember the '80s?). Eventually, I migrated to surface embroidery, teaching myself with whatever I could get my hands on...read more

And the Winner Is….


Amazon Books

I’m very happy and excited to announce the winner of my Birthday Give-Away.

The lucky winner is going to receive a nice little bundle of needlework and embroidery items, along with a few other pretty tidbits – and I’m dying to show you the collection, but that would ruin the surprise, wouldn’t it?! I have to wait until she gets the box! I had fun putting it together!

Thank you all so much for the happy birthday wishes! I had so much fun reading your comments as they came in! Your views on gifts seem to fall into several categories, but most seem to focus around a few notable ideas: that it’s often more fun to give than to receive; that the thought is what counts, more than the gift; and that some gifts are not “purchasable,” but rather given from the heart – not necessarily things, if you get my drift.

Anyway, it was fun to read your comments! I wish I could send everyone a little package! I was actually wondering what it would be like to organize a large “little something” mailing, but I couldn’t do it – it would break the bank! Never fear – there will be future opportunities to win other give-aways! Thank you for participating!

Without further ado, the winner is:

Emily B. from New Mexico…

Congratulations, Emily! Please contact me with your mailing address, and I’ll get your little box of goodies on its way!

Today, I’m heading out to the studio to do some straightening and organizing, so that I can launch into the several things that I must do this week! Wish me luck!

  1. I’m so darn glad that someone else has to spend time straightening and re-organizing their studio. I thought I was the only one that has to put away all the “stuff” I’ve used on a project in order to begin another. Thanks for adding that to your post.
