Our random winner of Aimee Ray's Doodle Stitching is:
I love Aimee's work! I've been wanting to learn Sashiko, and I bet she has a fun project to make it a little less intimidating.
Congrats, Cindy - and thanks again to Lark for providing a review copy and making this giveaway possible! And here's Pam's wonderful finished doll - sweetness, eh?
Scandinavian Stitches Giveaway
We have a winner of these gorgeous threads contributed by Lynda of Scandinavian Stitches! (By the way, if you would like some interesting reading on Danish Flower Thread, I recommend this post on Mary Corbet's Needle n Thread.)
I had a great time reading through each and every one of your awesome comments - what a great stitching circle we could make! I love just how many of you would choose to stitch with your mothers and grandmothers - including those that have passed on, are ill, and those that are a great distance away. So, everyone's mother, grandmother, sister, and ancestors are invited!
I particularly loved the following stitching partners:
Royal School of Needlework
Louisa May Alcott
Dame Judi Dench
Jenny Hart / Jillian Tamaki / Erica Wilson / Mary Corbett
A round table stitch-athon with Jenny Adin-Christie, May Morris, Queen Margrethe II of Denmark and my Granny
Mary Queen of Scots or Anne Boleyn
So, they're invited, too! But, my hands-down favorite had to be Albus Dumbledore, so here is our winner:
I'd love to stitch with Albus Dumbledore.. after all if he loves knitting patterns, he might as well love embroidery
Genius! A man who enjoys knitting would make an admirable stitching companion, I agree. This was awesomely fun - thanks everyone for contributing! And thank you, Lynda for sponsoring such a nice prize. Remember you're invited to visit Lynda's home show April 19-21 in Stamford, Connecticut - read the original post for RSVP details.
And you might want to check in later this week for information on another upcoming giveaway!
