Hello Everyone,

Here is my update of my Paula Vaughn "Friendship Quilts".  Its taken me awhile to get this far, I keep trudging along on the quilt.  the problem is it's one stitch of this and one of that! LOL

Hope everyone's Summer is going well.  Ours has been really hot the last few weeks, but hopefully it will cool down by the weekend.

Also it's time for my Blogaversary as of the 25th of September my Blog is 4 years old:)  So I am having a giveaway and on the 25th.  I will choose one winner for a $20.00 gift certificate from 123stitch and another will win something stitched by me.

Now to win what you need to do is become a follower of my blog if you're not already and if you're a follower already make sure I am aware of it, post to this message and make sure I have your email address, so I can contact you if you win.  You'll have another chance to win if you post about my giveaway on your blog. That will be 3 chances to win!  Good Luck!!

Hi Mary! I'm a new follower! I'm so happy to have had the chance to find your blog :) I love PV designs. I can remember my mother cross stitching one when I was a child and it still hangs in her house today :) I hate confetti stitching so I can totally relate to the time you're having with the quilt.

I would love to be entered into your giveaway as well please. Such a generous one too :) I'll be sure to head over to my blog now to post it on the landing page!

Happy Blogoversary and Happy Stitching!

Hi Mary Louise, I'm a new follower of your blog thanks to Vicky of Nutmegger's Stitching Works! Thank you so much for the chance in your giveaway. I looked back 3-4 pages in your blog and I love your Halloween and autumn stitching!

Anonymous said...

Just became a follower and I'm sure glad I found your blog! I have several Paula Vaughn charts but haven't had the nerve to stitch one up yet! My sister-in-law used to go to church with Paula's brother (one of my "almost" brushes with fame!) and he had one of her original paintings hanging in his house. Anyway, I'd love to be entered in your giveaway and am looking forward to getting blog posts from you!
