500!

This is my 500th blog post!
Amazing!!!!
No, not giving away any stitching today....
you'll have to get to the very bottom to find today's giveaway.
I wanted to show you a peek...
I'm in two sampler swaps right now.
This one is just a small group of 5 women from around the world.
Anyway..... last night I realized I needed to dye some lace I wanted to use on this.
I did stitch the girl.... to be revealed later!
You will LOVE this sampler!
It belongs to Carole in New Zealand...
it's to die for...
yesterday's post has a link to her latest class.
Oh, the advantages to being a morning coffee drinker!
Every morning of my life I have a coffee dye available like clockwork!
(yes, it's one word... I looked it up)
I happened to notice this morning....
because you know when you dye one thing,
you look around to see what else you can plunge into that vat....
one of the birds was all a twitter.
I do believe that he thinks when he was very, very young I
must've plunged him into the coffee -
therefore, explaining his
underwing issues!
I didn't! I swear!
Okay....here's today's giveaway....
just a few simple things I made...
First is a simple blank book you can paste stuff in... it's theme is circles/dots...

You also will get one of those embroidered buttons I told you about a few posts back!

And remember the bird postcard I made recently

and talked about titling it with a name from your

local phonebook?

You get him, too!

I made a wire hanger for him....

and I brushed some hot beeswax on him...

Hot beeswax ....

now there's something else

that you find yourself looking around the room

to see

what else could use a good coating!

See you tomorrrrrrrrrrow!
