March giveaway!!

Primitive Irish Cupboard Sampler
Mattress pincushion and scissor fob
Freebie by: The Sampler Girl
32ct linen & DMC threads

Just completed these items for my 'March giveaway'. It's a freebie of The Sampler Girl.

I finished it into a Mattress pincushion and took a part of for the scissor fob. Actually, when i've seen the chart i had in mind to finish it off into a floss tag for my next giveaway but when i was half way stitching it, it was quite big for a floss tag so i thought to finish it off into a pinkeep but can't find an appropriate fabric for the back and i am running out of time, i really want to finish it off this week. So again, i decided to finish it off into a mattress pincushion and made a scissor fob to go along with it.
I do love how both turn out and kind off difficult to part with, i think i will stitch it again for myself later.....
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 monday(9 march).

Thanks so much Tanya for this wonderful design.

Thank you all so much for the best wishes for Grace, she feels fine now. One of her best friends didn't go to school for a couple of days now or after she had the injection last monday, she didn't feel well a kind of dizzy and weak. But i heard tonight she's fine now and be back to school tomorrow. She and Grace had to babysit this evening but Grace had to do it alone, i was a bit anxious as she have to take care of two girls(age 3 and 1 year old). Glad all went well, though she came home later than usual(10pm, instead of half hour earlier) so i was even more anxious.

I'll be off to visit a friend at the mainland tomorrow, and might not be online for a couple of days. Hope to catch up this weekend, i just saw lots of updated blogs but can't come and visit now. I'm off to bed now as i have to get up very early tomorrow to do some errands before leaving.

Again, i really appreciates all your visits and all the comments. Hope everyone's having a good week.

Hello Mylene - the mattres pincushion and also the scissors fob are absolutely great.
How have you done this kind of pincushion - is there a nice free tuto around?
Thanks for sharing.
