February giveaway! a mattress pincushion!

Love Bug Mattress pincushion
Freebie by: Erynne
32ct. linen
DMC threads

I've seen this one on Annie's
blog yesterday and thought this will be my february giveaway. i finished stitching it last night while watching a movie with hubby and complete it just now into a pincushion.
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 valentines day.

Thanks so much for this lovely design Erynne!

As you can see we have MAX again for company. Dh picked him up yesterday and he'll stay till sunday evening. Glad i took my camera early this morning when we went for a walk at the dyke, we had unexpectedly met one nearly the same sort as Max. He's name is Balou and is 3 years old. He leaves here on the village too for
one and a half year now but it's the first time we saw him. It was very misty till half way this afternoon. Atleast it wasn't so cold for a walk unlike the previous days when it was quite windy and rainy too.

My pc isn't working up properly since monday, still not fully fix! I am way behind
on my blog reading as well as on the yahoo groups, do hope to catch up later next week.

Many thanks for stopping by and all the lovely comments. Also i received a couple of awards and thank you all so much for thinking of me. I will post more about it next week.

I hope everyone have a good weekend!!

I just saw this design yesterday. You are a speedy stitcher! Please add my name to your drawing. Thanks!

Shari said...

wow, you stitched that up quickly! And oh so cute!
Max looks very happy with his new friend! It was nice enough here today for a short walk also. It felt SO GOOD to take an outdoor walk, instead of the treadmill in the dark basement!! Have a great weekend!

How lovely and what a quick stitcher you are!
Nice to see how Max and Balou get along. I'm afraid my doggie only barks seeing another dag (he has been bitten twice and can't stand other dogs anymore. It sometimes is a nightmare to walk him.
I would love to be in the draw for the pincushion.

Christine said...

It's really lovely; I never made a cushion like that.

PS The Necessities Sampler will go to the framers. But I have to put some money away first. I have a couple of finishes that I will bring there.

Hi Mylene
Great minds think alike, I too downloaded this pattern the other day, I think this is going to be popular. I won't ask to be included as I have started mine but yours is certainly inspiration to get mine finished.

Kathy said...

Love your mattress, Mylene & please include me in your drawing.

I'm so far behind on reading blogs, so am trying to catch up today. Have to leave comment only once on each blog if I'm ever going to get caught up. LOL

You have many lovely stitching projects that you've finished & also that you're currently working on. I always enjoy seeing your work because it's so very lovely.

I think Max would prefer living with your family than his current owner. He does seem to be quite happy with all of you.

Have a great weekend,
Barb in TX
