My 2015 Birthday Giveaway!

Today is my seventy-first birthday.  Born, October 18, 1944.  If you've been here for a length of time, then you know I like to have a Giveaway on my birthday. it is, my friends.  I hope you will enjoy the photos below...and if you'd like a chance to receive these things, kindly make a comment on this post and on Wednesday evening (October 21st), I will choose a winner.  Also, please make sure you leave info for me to reach you...should you be that winner.  

So...for you...a pincushion I just finished.  Made from a little piece of fabric and trimmed with the decorative edge of a vintage pillowcase, no longer useful, but the edge is great.  Not only is the edging used on the pincushion, but I'm including a length of it here, as you see, for your own use on a project, along with some pink pearl pins.  Just for fun.

There will also be a string of vintage buttons.  I hope you like them.  I try to find these strings in the flea market from time to time and would enjoy sharing with you.

Of course, I also wanted to put a Satin Stitch heart there too.  You know I love doing those....and I like that I decided to say "ALWAYS STITCH WITH HEART."  My philosophy, for sure.

And, a simple running stitch.  One of the things I am really admiring of late.

This little print fabric is one I have saved for many years.  I love the pink with brown.

By the way, the pincushion is 4 1/2" x 4 1/2" large enough to be useful, small enough to be very cute!

 Included will also be a vintage hand towel...with Pink details, of course!

And, then, there is the current issue of Somerset Life magazine.  A fun magazine 
to spend some time with this Fall.

So, there you are.  My birthday Giveaway for this year.  I'd love for you to want it, so again, IF you do, then kindly leave that comment, along with info for me to reach you....just in case.

Until Wednesday,
