New Release and Giveaway Winner

Well, it has been one busy morning.
Packing up all the finished pieces that sold
in my Etsy Shop yesterday.  I'll be shipping
them today.  Thank you, friends.
Stitching on a newly designed 
sampler that I just love♥ and drawing a name 
for the winner of my Civil War Needlebook Kit.
Thank you to all who entered.
So without further adieu.
The winner is......

 Congrats!!!!  I'll be contacting you shortly :)
I hope you'll enjoy stitching it.
~*~*~*~*~
I also promised to post the release of my 
newest Bee design.  I know many of you
have emailed me about it and have been 
very anxious to see it.  You are all so sweet! 

It's called "A Bee's Bounty"

It still features that cute little bee, along with
some Blackeyed Susan and a honeycomb.

 The finished bag is approx. 5 ¼“ wide by 11” high 
and stitched on 32ct R & R Reproductions 
Creme Brulee linen using WDW Schneckly
 and Dirt Road.  GA Dried Thyme and 
Espresso Bean.  A color conversion 
for using all DMC threads is provided.
( I hope my friend Bonnie is smiling )
I used a piece of black twill tape for the stripe
on the bag to give it that French grain sack look.

Well, I sure hope you like what I've created and 
you know I always love to hear your feedback :)
~*~*~*~*~
Hope to do a bit more stitching on the new 
Sampler and then maybe show you a peek.
Been working almost no stop in the garden
these days because the weather has been so perfect.

Sincere thanks for stopping by my 
humble blog and for all the smiles you provide me.
Thanks again to all who participated in my
little giveaway.  It was fun and you helped
boost my facebook page to over 100 more likes.
You guys are the best! 
Smiles, ~Nan
