A finish & A winner!

"Sleigh Bells"
design by Country Rustic Primitives
Gosh! I feel so bad... Here I have a giveaway and then I disappear for a few days...
It's that crazy holiday time of year ~ busy at work and busy at home.
Crafting time has been slow going, but I did have one finish of the pillow above. Did you notice the little added fabric on the right? I stitched left to right and when I got to the end, I realized that when I started it very late one night I must have miscalculated the length of fabric - YIKES! So I had to "make do" and will just call it primitive lol. I appliqued a bit of leather colored wool and added some vintage jingle bells to make my piece complete.
So on with the winner...
I received 51 responses to my giveaway question (via comments and emails) and I am so excited about all of the wonderful music that was recommended! I've created a long list of music to investigate. I usually try to get CD's from the library for a trial run and to see if it is "purchase worthy", then create a wishlist of CD's to buy. Right now the library has a limit of 4 holiday CD's per person, but the day after Christmas I'm going to put my reserve list out for bunches! Lol! I'll be listening to Christmas music into February :) Thank you so much for the awesome response and all of your thoughtful recommendations ~ I truly appreciate it!
I used the random number generator and it picked #50!
Roberta of Cottonwood Lane Primitives is the winner!
Please send me your mailing address and I will ship ASAP...
not sure it will get there by Christmas, but we can try!
I'm hoping for another post or two before the holiday. I really wanted to share some of my decorations and a lovely swap that I was in this month...
And the monthly giveaways will continue in 2012 :)
Thanks again for participating!
Blessings, Patti

Congratulations to Roberta. And thank you for hostessing the giveaway.
Your little pillow is perfect the way it is because so often girls that stitched their samplers did things to
'make up' for the stitches not measuring out correctly. It's wonderful!
Merry Christmas,
