Trish Burr Embroidery Kit Winner!


Amazon Books

Well, here it is. The winner of the Trish Burr Embroidery kit give-away! I really enjoyed reading everyone’s comments as they came in. So many embroidery techniques out there, and so many of us wanting to do them all!

I chose the winner using a random number generator, just so you know. It would be waaaaay too difficult to select among comments, but I love reading the comments and they are quite useful to me, too. Besides being entertaining and interesting, they help me get ideas for future work here on Needle ‘n Thread. Thanks for that!

Ok – on to the winner!

Trish Burr Needlepainting Kit

The lucky winner of this beautiful needle painting kit from Trish Burr is …..

Lorraine Connelly! Congratulations, Lorraine! Please contact me with a mailing address, and I’ll get this in the mail as soon as possible!

Before Christmas, I’ll do another give-away for a needlepainting kit, so if you didn’t win, there’s still a chance later on.

And, speaking of Trish, her new website is up and running!

Trish Burr Embroidery

If you get a chance, stop by a visit her at Trish Burr Embroidery. While you’re there, besides falling in love with the blue and yellow bird on the home page, check out the other pieces in her gallery. They’re all beautiful, but for some reason, the birds just grab me. That hornbill is amazing! And the little bee eaters?!? I just love ’em!

Thanks to all for your participation in the give-away! Do look for another before Christmas! It was fun!
