Trillium's Earth Day Giveaway

*For U.S. residents ONLY, due to postage costs*

To celebrate Earth Day, I'm holding a giveaway today. The prize is a set of two matching white cotton dish towels that I hand-embroidered with a windmill. The design is from Aunt Martha's Windmill Transfers. The fabric is an inexpensive flour-sack type cotton and it will shrink a little. The floss color is DMC 820 blue.

U.S. readers have until midnight tonight, EDT(Eastern Daylight Time), to leave a comment on this post. Please put a link on your blog as well.

I know I haven't blogged much lately and this is to get me reconnected. Please let me know if you have an email address on your blog if you don't want to post it here due to spam seekers. I need to be able to contact the winner.

I will choose a winner early tomorrow morning and post it.

My Winter House for Melissa

This is the pinkeep that I stitched for Melissa for the HOE 2010 Winter House Exchange. It is part of LHN's "Snowflakes" and it is a combination of DMC and Carrie's Creation floss on 32ct. Smokey Pearl Belfast linen.

The fence looks redder than it actually is.I filled in the letters of "winter" because it did not show up well enough unfilled (as charted).
