June Giveaway

Having completed the Workbasket Rabbit Rondel and the pincushion and scissor fob also featured in the leaflet, I thought this would make a nice giveaway. The chart is very gently used and comes from a pet-free, smoke-free home. You may view my stitched Rabbit Rondel in the May 25 post. It is my intention to finish it as the lid of a shaker sewing box just as soon as I get to the local Michael's or AC Moore to purchase a 9" round box and some paints.
If you wish to be considered for this giveaway, just post a comment below. I'll choose a winner on June 10.

I put in a little more time on the Fertile Circles needlebook this morning before work. I went stash diving and found another packet of seed beads that will work well with my palette for this piece and I found three more of the tiniest rings that I have been using for wrap stitching to make the "nests". I also continued the vertical band of knotted cross stitch up the left side of the front cover of the needlebook ... slow work, but pretty.

And I will be stitching on Workbasket's Quaker Rabbit during my lunch break ... mainly because I need the immediate gratification of seeing speedy progress. So many of my current WIPs [Fertile Circles, Holly and Hearts Sampler and TW's Autumn Faerie] work up so slowly that the Workbasket Quaker Animals [relatively quick stitches] are great morale boosters.

I should have a home computer up and running again tomorrow or the next day, so I'll be able to post pictures again. Using the computer at work during my lunch break doesn't really allow enough time for uploading photos.
