GIVEAWAY!

I'd decided some time back that when my followers broke through the 50 barrier.....

..I'd have a little "Giveaway" ....

...to say "Thanks" to all those people (seen and sometimes unseen) who visit my blog!

So here it is.....a small voile panel...printed, beaded and kantha-stitched....(about 6 inches square including the linen backing)

...using some of Diane's floss (that you can get here).




All you need to do to have a chance of winning is to leave a comment here by Friday 15th January.

..and as a special reward for followers....(put "FOLLOWER" in your comment somewhere)

....I'll include your name twice!

These small "Soft and Red" pieces have given me a welcome change over the last couple of months, and I'll be continuing with the theme for some time yet.

But...other things are afoot!....and new, different pieces will be emerging.....

...more "experimental"......

...and "bearing words"............from wherever....or whoever........

I'll be quiet here until Friday, but I'll chirp up in the comment box now and again ;-)

Good Luck!

x Chris
