A Winner!


We have a winner in the December NewFO Linky Party.  I generated a number at random and came up with:

#15--Cheryl

Thanks to everyone who linked up!  It was fun seeing all your new projects.  And now it's time to bid a fond farewell to the 2012 NewFO Challenge button because today's post is your last chance to see it.  We're making way for the Nifty New 2013 NewFO Challenge button!  Ta-Da!

2013NewFO

Don't know what a NewFO is?  Click on the image to find out!

There's a whole new set of prizes for 2013's monthly drawings.  I have a whole year's worth of Needle Nannies to give away.  Did you catch the one at the top of my embroidery a couple of days ago?  A few of you had sharp eyes.


They're a little gizmo with a strong magnet that you can fasten to your stitcheries, or your clothing, or whatever!  (You might want to avoid sticking it to your cat.)  I stick my needle to it whenever I finish my embroidery for the morning, and that needle will not get lost no matter how much it tries to get away.  (They are wiley that way.)  I'm telling you, these babies are strong.  Also, proceeds from their sale go to a good cause.  They are handmade from copper, brass and nickel in a small village in Thailand, where proceeds contribute to the health, education, and welfare of the community.

This is the one I'll be giving away in January:


Cute, huh?  If you want to win it, be ready with your January NewFO when the linky party goes live on January 31st.  Until then, have fun starting your new projects!

Thanks! Thanks! Thanks! Yes, I did notice that cute little kitty on your stitchery, while the other kitties were snuggling nicely (for once) in your lap. Good Gracie and Smitty!
