Winter stitching progress and a Winner

 
"Snowman Penny Rug" by Quilts by Cheri
is now complete.
 
 
A perfect home for it right under this little antique grater with candle.


 
I also completed the two blocks for "Snowy Days" by Heart to Hand.

 
I like the little bit of embroidery that sets it off.

 
And a bit on the stars as well. I think that I am now at the half way point.

 
I am so thrilled to have two models from the Primitive Quilts Winter 2015 issue living at my house!
In addition to my project, Lori Brechlin's "Threads in Time" now lives with me!!!
I am so excited - it is even more beautiful in person :)
 
 
And now for what you are waiting for...
Thank you ever so much for the 154 entries into my giveaway!
I can't thank you enough for all the kind words!!!
I wish that I had the time to acknowledge and respond to each of you.
It was so fun to hear what you like best about winter...
For most, it was the snow, as long as you were inside watching it by a fire/woodstove, drinking hot tea or hot chocolate and stitching/reading to your hearts content. The peacefulness of a new fallen snow was frequently mentioned as well as the beauty of red cardinals flitting so brightly against the white background. Of course there were a few who said the best part of winter is when it is over! Lol!
So the winner is...
#106 Lecia of Farmhouse Prims. You can follow Lecia's sweet blog here.
 
I will be hosting another giveaway in February of something that I created,
so be sure to stop back.
Thank you again for joining in the fun!
