My Bloggerversay Winner's Prizes Finished!!!!

Hello Friends....well today I got my fanny in gear and I finally finished the stitching and finishing on my three Bloggerversary Winner's Prizes! I'm so happy to mark these off my list. Next time, when I have a Bloggerversary, I'm going to have something pre-stitched! :) I've been worrying myself nutty about these....Here's what I decided to stitch for: LYNN, SUSAN and MEL (ladies, btw, I will be mailing these TODAY after I pick up my kids from school! So start stalking your Postal Worker!)

Prairie Schooler - Autumn Pinkeep - from the Gift of Stitching Magazine

Backing Fabric


Braided Ribbon and Pins

I made a 4th one of these for myself, but I gave it away to a friend of mine that was having a tough week last week. She loved it and that made me happier than keeping it for myself :) After completing these 4 pinkeeps that brings my total finishes for the year up to 42! WhooHoo ME!

Now what am I stitching on? I pulled the threads, fabric and chart for my Fair and Square Exchange. I hopefully will get a LOT knocked off of this today yet! Hopefully finish it tomorrow, then I get to get hammering on a couple of birthday gifts that are FAST approaching.

I hope you all have a great weekend! And until I "see" you again, stitch with dancing fingers!

  1. Hi Vonna,

    Your PS pinkeeps look great. Congratulations! They may be small, but I know there is a lot of stitching packed into that little square of a design.

    Happy stitching to you and I hope you have a good weekend.

  2. Well, gosh darn, golly :) You just made me smile again today. I didn't know you made the "extra" one of these beauties for yourself! Well, goodness...you sure have the most giving spirit I know. Bless you, my friend. And, yes, your gift made my day/week/month and put a smile on my day in the midst of a crappy week. I wish I had some nifty hobby that I could gift you with this week...cuz I feel you are in need of a little smiling too, my friend :) Bless you for your giving heart and soul. I am humbled by your friendship :)
    Hugs, Kel :) (btw...your stitchin' makes me smiles daily as I admire it in my living room...I dare say it's the prettiest thing in there! :))

  5. Very nice. And I like the backing fabric, and the pumpkin fabric they are all laying on. I made that pattern too, to give to a friend, I just made a little pin cushion out of mine.

    Vonna,
    What lovley little gifts these PS's mini seasons make. Luckily they are small enough to be able to stitch over and still enjoy doing it. What a nice thought to give one to your friend to cheer her up and it worked!
    Best wishes Angela
