Well my mom went in for surgery this morning. I have tried calling but still haven't heard anything. I would loved to have been there first hand like I had for her others surgeries and her treatments, but she requested that I stay home and take care of the boys. Considering that they could possibly have something else along with the respiratory infections, I knew she was right. After all , I don't want to spread anything to anyone else ( especially her ) should I be carrying anything. It killed me to stay home though.
Well ,here it is! For the giveaway I stitched part of Blackbird Designs 'Be Kind and True' and made it into a needlebook.I stitched it on 32 count lambswool linen using DMC and some Weeks Dye Works. I used an antique looking sage green moire fabric for the back and inside . For the pages I used a 28 count oatmeal evenweave as I thought that would look nice as this sort of has a natural feel to it. It closes with a mother of pearl button and loop made from DMC. If you are interested in trying to win this needlebook, all you have to do is comment on this post and make sure that you leave your email so I can contact you if you are the winner.
