I made a decision for your gift!

Hi everyone.  Hope this post finds you well and safe!  I don't have a lot of time to post about stitching, or even to stitch!  My contractor showed up today and I am glad to get started on these unfinished projects.  The scanner and printer are under a sheet in a pile of stuff so I am limited in what I can accomplish. 
But short and sweet - here's your gift....offer.....giveaway.  Finishing has been mentioned lately so I thought some supplies might be a good idea.  First off, an oval box with my sampler bag design as a label (it got a little too much flame with my limited movement so I may do another).    Inside the little box, you will find 3 fat 1/8's of backing fabric.  One is orange with pumpkins, another is brown with holly, and the third is mustard with moon & stars.
  
To finish it off, a new bottle of my favorite fabric glue, Liquid Stitch, a temporary fabric glue stick to hold trims and edges while stitching, and of course, Fray Check.
So the total offer is for the little fabric pieces, finishing helpers, and the box. 

 Leave a comment on this post only. 

I will draw a name on the 15th, next Saturday, at 8 pm.  Enjoy your weekend.  Thank you for visiting and talk to you soon!

TheCrankyCrow said...

Simply brilliant idea/offering Missy Marly! Now, it you could just squeeze your little ol' self in that box and come along for some "hands-on" finishing, I could say a finer giveaways has never been offered. ;o) Seriously.....I would be honored and thrilled to be entered. I have several "unfinisheds" here myself (and that is truly odd, since I don't manage to even get to that point in most cases....) Thank you for hostessing another wonderfully generous event.....And, BTW....congrats on the milestones. Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
