Give Away, Day 8 with the King of Rock 'n Roll


Watching these old Christmas videos is not only a personal walk down memory lane but as I look at the other people in the video I realize how much society has changed...notice the big hair and how all the fans are dressed...in dresses! lol

I am using the new Valdani Tweed thread with my latest embroidery project.  I got this newest selection of thread from my friend Anne of Cottons 'n Wool but  you can find it on the Primitive Gatherings web site.  I love it!  The mixed colors are perfect for the basket in this project.  This project is a combination of embroidery and wool!  I am in heaven! lol  I of course used Transfer Eze and my college roommate Terri has asked me to talk about Transfer Eze...so tomorrow I will post a step by step on how I use it!  A Transfer Eze tutorial!  



The Day 7 Give Away Winner is...Pauline who said, "Luv your Merry and Bright table runner. I'm a huge fan of Robin Kingley's Bird Brain Patterns too......I've stitched lots of them Don't you just luv the new snowman table runner, Snow Happens.....I luv it and have it started. Thanks for the chance."  You can check out what Pauline is up to on Quilt 'n Queen  and yes Pauline I am really excited to start "Snow Happens!"  Send me your mailing address and I will brave the post office! lol  Yesterday I was standing in line listening to the 2 women in front of me argue on whether it was good to hold the door opened or closed and emailing Debbie from Wool 'n Sails. In this day and age there is more than one way to pass the time in line!

 It is so much fun picking out the next days pattern Give Away...do you remember this one!  It is a Bird Brain Design !  The pattern was for a table runner but since I had this cool hanger I decided to make a banner!  If you win this one you can make a table runner or a banner...cause you're a winner!  Leave me a comment and be sure you are a registered follower!

  2. Oh, that is the cutest snowman. And I love that blue background. I have a Christmas hanger so I think I would make it up as a banner if I won. Thanks for a wonderful giveaway and Merry Christmas.

  6. Oh dear! Snowmen seem to have caught my attention this year. Please throw my name in the dog dish. I'm even wearing snowman socks today!

    BTW Birdbrain is now recommending Sticky Fabri-Solvy instead of Transfer Eze. Apparently it comes in a full 8.5 X 11 sheet that makes it easier to run through your printer/copier. It also comes in 11 X 17 for larger designs.

  17. Thanks for saying where you find the Valdani thread. Now I have two more sources, in addition to Raspberry Rabbit. Please enter me in your draw. That is such a cute pattern.

  18. I truly LOVE Valdani thread, so now I'm going to go have to look at the tweeds! My set of hand dyed Valdani thread was purchased from The Stitchin' Post a few years back, so perhaps they still carry it.

    I'll be looking forward to the tutorial on Transfer Eze too, since I've never used it before.

    Your snowman is very cute, and since I too am a snowman collector, I am hoping against hope that I win the pattern!!! My daughter collects snowmen too! So I **NEED** to win so that I can make her one for her house!
