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

Trish Burr Booklets – Give-Away Winner!


Amazon Books

Happy Monday, All!

It’s my pleasure to announce the winner for the pair of Trish Burr booklets from last week’s give-away!

Trish Burr Colour Palettes

The booklets are Traditional Embroidery Colour Schemes and Introduction to Miniature Embroidery. Both booklets are available through Trish Burr’s Etsy shop – and I believe the miniature embroidery one is even available as a digital download, which is always handy (and quick, and usually a little less expensive – no postage involved, either!).

Ok, so, on to the lucky winner!

It is Kath from Oz (as in Australia)! Her reply to the color preference question:

G’day Mary, On my Pinterest colour board there are 2 definite colour schemes that dominate. A rich turquoise tending to the green side with complementary deep reds & golds, and the other is rusty autumn colours
with the appropriate accompanying colours of the season.
I love white on white and cream and visa versa too.
Cheers, Kath from Oz.

Oh, congratulations, Kathy! Do send me your mailing address and I’ll get those out to you some time soon – hopefully by the end of the week!

Coming Up on Needle ‘n Thread

Uh… I just realized I don’t have my planner and calendar in front of me. I can’t remember what’s coming up this week! I know there’s a nifty little tutorial at some point, involving stitching. Other than that, I suppose we’ll all just have to be surprised!

I hope you have a terrific Monday!

  3. Kathy from Oz…

    This is so exciting! I believe that you were one of my classmates in the recent “Vintage Garden Strawberries” thread painting Online class hosted here at Needle ‘n Thread! That is wonderful that you won these terrific books by Trish Burr! Congrats!

    1. Yes, sure was Bonnie. Great to meet up again, and thank you. I’m thrilled with my win. I’m so pleased I did the class. It was wonderful in many ways, and not least for our very helpful and ‘interactive’ teacher and fellow classmates. Cheers, Kath.

  4. Congrats Kath, you are one lucky lady. Where do you live – I might be able to come on over for a ‘play day’, HA.

    BTW Mary, my curiosity is piqued. Until now I assumed that even though we ‘furriners’ entered that we weren’t really in the running, but now that Kath has won I see that is not the case, so how do you choose the winners?
