It's Been a Great Week!

I've got winners!

Thank you to everyone who responded to my At the Beach contest - may this summer find you at the beach - or at least at the place that makes you happy!

I had entries come in through email as well as the blog (blogger glitch...) so we put everyone's name on a piece of paper.
 
I had my son scramble the entries & pick 5 names! (He's used to being asked to perform the occasional odd task around the house...)
 
& the winners are
 
I know, I know - hard to read. I'll be in touch with: Howdy68, Renee, Judybob3, Marilyn, Nicolesender

 
As soon as we connect, I will send you my latest release - At the Beach!
 
It's been a awesome week for me as well. Over 8 months ago, I was contacted by the editorial staff at Just Cross Stitch to set up an interview and design a piece for the August issue.
 
The issue is now available and man, is that cool! I had a great interview with Vickie Jennett (of Needlework Press) and designed the Black & White Garden Pinkeep. I have been so excited to share this piece with you.
 
Check out my photos - but wait - there's more...I also have an ornament in the issue as part of the annual Ornament Preview section!
 

 
I shot a couple pics before I sent the model of to the editors. The message unfolds as you open up the pinkeep! 
 
Congrats again to the winners.
 
Enjoy the stitch, Cathy

  6. Congrats to the winners!

    I just got my electronic version of JCS yesterday. I think I'm going to do your pinkeep as my next small project as soon as I finish Petal Pincushion from the April issue.
