A warm Hoosier Welcome

It has been a while since this Hoosier gal has posted anything. Am trying to get back in the groove . Will be posted sewing, decorating and crafting tips. I like frugality, using what you have in your present stash.

I have decided it was time for me to conduct another Give-Away.  Please note that
this is for USA or Canadian citizens only.

My choice of item is a Spring Easter Candle Mat.  What with all the horrible winter
weather we have all been experiencing, decided a light colorful item would be best.
What could be better than Spring & Easter.  Easter, to me, is a rebirth time, not only
for nature, but it reminds us of what Jesus did for us on the cross. His death is a
rebirth for us that choose to follow Him.

Anyway, the candle mat is approx. 9 1/2" diam.  The eggs are made from wool felt and then embroidered with DMC Floss.  The eggs were stitched onto Warm & Natural Batting. Couldn't resist adding the yellow Rick Rack around outer edge. Then the edging was stitched with a blanket stitch in yellow floss.

The egg is approx. 4 1/2" high.  Made from wool felt and stuffed.  Both items are hand stitched.

This Give-Away will end February 28, 2011 and the winner will be announced
March 1, 2011.

Please leave a comment and become a follower of my blog. Be sure I have info on how to contact you should you win.
