I am far remiss in posting about a giveaway I won a couple of weeks ago from Jo's Country Junction. Check out the adorable headbands she made with wool and her GO Cutter. I entered by saying I liked the mum one best and she sent me these:
Parts to three different headbands! A belated thank you to Jo for her generosity. I look forward to spending some crafty time playing with these lovelies.
And now for another small giveaway. It's my birthday, but one of you will be getting a present! In the picture below are tree ornaments with a little holly leaf cross-stitched name, some Christmas fabric, a bit of lace, and some satin cord.
These were made for co-workers and my doctor boss (his initials) for the office Christmas tree. Over the years I made a couple dozen as staff changes occurred. My rule was that you had to work at the office at least a full year before you got a stocking. I wish employees who left had taken their stockings with them--I have a stack of stockings with no home!
This Santa print is my absolute favorite and is vintage fabric I got from a neighbor long ago--as in more than 25 years ago. Sadly I am down to mere scraps, not enough to even craft a stocking, I'm afraid.
So here are the details: I'll make the winner a stocking with their own name, plus another with the name of their choice. It can be any name--that of a relative, friend, pet, boss, etc. I'll pick the fabrics, 'cause that's easier. I have lots of Christmas fabrics to choose from :).
To enter my birthday giveaway, tell me about your favorite Christmas ornament, either made or bought. That's it, no hoops to jump through, and I will ship internationally. I'll close the giveaway on Thursday, November 18th at 5 PM Pacific and pick a winner that evening. Make sure I have a way to contact you either in your profile or by leaving your email address in your comment. My goal would be to have these ready to send off by December 1st.
