My Valentine giveaway and exchange received from my friend.

Hi everyone, I have received my exchange from my friend in Spain ( photo's below)  and I am also offering another giveaway! This giveaway is now closed.

Another giveaway you may ask? Well, last year I missed out on offering a Valentine giveaway and I did not want to miss out again this year, so here it is! I just love stitching red and white, particularly hearts and roses, so I decided to design this small collection for two lucky people to win, I do hope you like them.
I am hoping to put together the instructions for this design when I get a moment.
Please scroll to bottom of post to see how to enter.

Click on photo's for close up detail
First prize - Heart shaped pillow and bottlecap pincushion
Second prize - Square pillow





Giveaway now closed
The first prize is the heart shaped felt pillow and the bottlecap pincushion embroidered with spider web roses and finished in blanket stitch.
Designed by me.
The instructions for the bottlecap pincushion can be found here, you can also find lots of inspiration from Jen Segrests webpage of little pincushions here 
The second prize is the square pillow embroidered with spider web roses and hearts, also finished in blanket stitch.
Designed by me.
Please note the bear is not included 

All you have to do is leave a comment on this post before 6pm (GMT) on Friday 19th February.

My exchange has arrived from Glady's

Here is the lovely exchange gift I received from Glady's in Spain. I received this in the mail on Saturday morning, it was a lovely start to the weekend! Glady's made me this lovely pillow,trimmed in this lovely edging and backed with my favourite type of fabric. Glady's also included threads, fabric, Valentine buttons and the most beautiful rose decorated thread holders.
The design is from the Joyeaux Noel book from Blackbird Designs, stitched on 32 count linen using Crescent Colours thread - Wild Berries.

Thankyou so much Glady's for this lovely exchange, I shall place the pillow in a safe place where I can see it everyday!
You can see Glady's blog here.




Thankyou for all of the lovely comments you leave on my blog, they are always a pleasure to read.

Happy stitching, until next time!

I just happened upon your blog and saw you were offering a cross stitch giveaway. I would love for a chance to win. I have been a cross stitched for over 25 years, and I don't think I have a singe item stitched by another person! I don't even have that much myself, as I always seemed to stitch for someone else. But I have been wanting to get back into it, therefore your giveaway caught me eye! I'll be looking around the rest of your blog, as you have some very beautiful items!
