Climbing Fences and ...a GIVEAWAY

Greetings all! I hope you all are having a wonderful day! All this rainy weather we've been getting here has made me more a little slower . That got me to thinking about a sign that I have hanging in my kitchen. I bought it years ago from a friend who was doing home catalog parties. I thought you all would get a kick out of it so I took a pic of it . Rings true for a lot of people I think.

Here is a piece from LHN titled Starlight Sampler. It is one of Diane's first designs once she set out on her own. I have had this sitting unfinished for a little bit. I didn't realize that I had the perfect fabric in my stash for finishing it until recently. Isn't it funny that it takes something a while to sink in? Anyway I will be making it into a pillow for our bedroom. It will fit right in with the Pinon Pines quilt when I get around to getting that one done.

...And a close up of a part of it.

....OK , on to the giveaway. It's not a super duper one ,but a giveaway none the less. I stitched this Hometown Gameboard from LHN some time ago and wasn't sure what I was going to use it for. Then I forgot about it and stitched it again and finished that one into a gameboard tray . So when I was cleaning out some of my needlework stash I ran across the first one. I have decided to pass it on. It was stitched with DMC floss on 28 count 'tea' monaco . The entire piece measures approx. 8"x 10". Now remember , this is just for the first stitched piece , not the gameboard tray. All you have to do to enter is leave a comment on this post and a way to contact you if you win. If your email is listed on your 'about me' page, then don't worry about it. I will draw a name on Monday.

Well dear blogging buddies, that's it for today. Thanks so much for visiting.

'Til next time,

Happy stitching!



  1. Sharlotte! This is a darling design. Please enter my name. That's funny that you stitched it twice. It's hard to remember all the stash we accumulate!
    Love the other LHN sampler and quilt fabric as well. Hope you can get them done and in your room soon.
    Take Care.

  2. Cute projects. I love the fabric you chose to back your pillow.
