Giveaway Update

The draw from my beaded fob giveaway is now closed.

I'm a little busy at the moment as DH Colin is due home tomorrow after being away for 7 weeks, so I will draw a name and post the winner sometime over the next couple of days.

My First Blog Giveaway

My very first blog giveaway! It's only a little something, but I hope you will like it enough to want to join in! It's another first! My first try at making a beaded scissors fob, following the tutorial on the Focus on Finishing blog. I am really happy with how it turned out and will definitely be making more!

As October is breast cancer awareness month, and also with me earlier this month attending my first breast cancer screening, I have made a breast cancer awareness fob. The beads are silver plated and Swarovski crystal, and Spiral Rose Silver Murano Glass Beads. The awareness ribbon is sterling silver with the words breast cancer stamped on the back. Anyone, anywhere is welcome to join in, whether you are a regular visitor or new to my blog. If you would like to be entered into the draw please leave a comment to this post only. I will also need an email address so that I can contact you if you should win. If it is on your blog, that's fine I will be able to find it, or you could leave a note of it with your post. I will draw a winner one week from today, on Thursday, 29th October and will annouce the winner soon after.

Thank you for taking part and good luck! :o)

Peace, Love, Joy

I've now finished making up all three of the Peace, Love, Joy ornaments by Renato Parolin. I stitched them all back in April but had only finished Joy (more pictures of Joy can be seen here). It's lovely to see them now all finished together.

I've changed the listed fabric and thread and have stitched them on 40ct R & R Light Espresso Linen, 1 over 2 with DMC 347. I've added the date to the back and finished them off with silk ribbon for the bow and hanger.
