Another Finish and A Giveaway

Can you believe it - after all these months of stitching and seeming to get nowhere I am posting my third finish in three weeks!!!!!

 May I present Nora Corbett's Valentine Fairy in all her beaded glory.




Check this one off the list. That's three finishes and so I will reward myself with a new start!!!! A big thank you to Carolyn who gifted me the fairy! Into my bottomless little wicker trunk I will go and see what I will work on next.

I also took a little time and worked on Sampler des Bouquets. The section top right is my latest progress.



And since I'm still very happy from all these finishes, I have decided to have a  little giveaway. It will be Snowflake Serenade from CHN and a few other little things thrown in. You don't have to do anything fancy.
Just leave a comment. If you want to become a follower - great. I would appreciate it. I will make a drawing  sometime on September 27.


Until next time, keep those frogs a hopping to strange new lands!!

Your Val fairy is very cute...love her skirt. Nice finish.

Everytime I see the other project you are working on on the Internet, I think that I'd like to stitch that, but I've got too many several part pieces in the works.
