January giveaway!

Cross stitched coaster
Design: Debra Page
Cross Stitch Crazy magazine, october 2004

It's the same serie as the flatfold i made as my giveaway last month. Everyone is welcome for the draw, but please indicate if you want to be added for the draw and if possible to leave your e-mail address so i know where to contact you. It will be open until wednesday(28th) evening.

After finishing the coaster bearing in mind that's it's for my next giveaway, i love it so much i stitched another for myself, as you can see the two coasters together.

I still haven't find an appropriate car design for a little boy, the size not bigger than 6 x 6 inches. Does anyone know a freebie somewhere? Thanks for any help.
(i've found one from Cross stitcher magazine, thanks so much for all the links shared!)

Dh will be arriving home soon for the weekend, so i won't be online much until after the weekend. If anyone waiting for a response from me, i will catch up later next week. Tomorrow i have to help at the football canteen for serving drinks and snacks i think. It's my first time so i am not really sure of what to do.
And sunday we are going to a birthday party of a friend on the mainland. Quite a busy weekend again!

Thank you all so much for stopping by and all the lovely comments. I really appreciate them all.

Wish you all a wonderful weekend!!

I have an old UK Cross Stitcher magazine with 3 car designs, each 52 x 52. They are each a 1950's flashy big US car, but only a part - front or rear bumper. Might be too 'adult' for your purposes.

email me if you are interested.

Hallo Mylene! Nou je hebt een druk weekeind voor de boeg hoor! Veel succes in de kantine...
Ik heb geen patroon voor een auto, maar ik hoop dat je er ondertussen één gevonden hebt?
Je onderzetter is heel leuk geworden en ik wil ook graag mee doen met de loterij...ik ben een echte thee drinker!
Prettig weekeind!

Hi Mylene! I stumbled upon your blog and what a sweet surprise- Uy Filipina!

I'll link your blog to mine.

Tama said... has some in their free patterns. Sort by designer, then Jerry Van Horn. On the third page is a red corvette; if you stitched in on 18ct, it would be just right.
Anyway, your coaster is so cute!

Since christmas with firstly my ill health and then my mums its been hard to keep up with blogs so I have just been playing catch-up.

You have some lovely things on the go and I loved the little squirrel you did. Max looks very smart after his trim too.

I would love to take part in your give away draw too - what a sweet little coaster and so appropriate.
