Myra's Giveaway Arrived!

This the best thing that arrived in my mailbox this week! I won Myra's (gr8dame's place)giveaway. The package was lovely. Of course, I tore right in.
And this is what I won! A lovely card and note, a wonderful project bag, a great Santa millhill kit, Christmas floss, an evenweave towel to stitch on. I didn't even know that these were even available. The item that I loved the most is the pincushion. Myra made it and it is beautifully made. I can't thank her enough.
Afew more things that I received in the mail. My friend, Nataly turned me on to these awesome scissors. I really needed to have them (it's an illness) so here they are. Aren't they cute? Of course, I couldn't just order the scissors ,so I also ordered a new needleminder that I've had my eye on. The two kits are from Kelmscott Designs.


I finished the latest Ann. House from BBD called Happy Birthday. I used my initials and my BFF Cheryl's. The fabric is 28 ct. cream linen using the suggest fibers. I'll have it stretched and I have a frame that I pop in and out off.

I want to thank everyone for the wonderful comments. Have a great weekend and happy stitching.

Don't forget that there are three great giveaways in the works. Julie at I'll cross that leg when I get there, Magee at stitching devotee and Fiona at peaceful threads. Check them out.
