Four Colly Birds. And the winners are...

Wow!! I was blown away by the enthusiastic response to my giveaway in July! I decided to pick four winners instead of two! I truly wish I could afford to give each and every one of you the chart of your choice. If you are not a winner today, please don't be discouraged, I will hosting more giveaways in the future!

I simply printed each name onto a slip of paper, threw them into a basket and drew names the old fashioned way. My elder daughter picked two lucky winners. Without further ado, here are the winners:

I had my two daughters to help draw the winners. For first prize, my elder daughter draw a name out of the box. You can see her dug her hand into the bottom of the box and pull out a name.

The Winner of 1st prize is...
 Elaine of Laineys Stitching Hoose. Congrats Elaine!!

And my younger daughter draw the 2nd Winner's name…

She is Catherine of Bramblewood Stitches. Congrats Catherine!!

To thanks to my readers, I have a very special prize for one of the commenters on my 14th June post. The winner will get the chart of her choice.

I have my younger daughter to draw name out of this basket.

 The Special Prize goes to… 
Deborah of Cranberry Samplings. Congrats Deborah!!

I have another prize for my followers in Cottage Garden Sampling's weblog. The winner will get the chart of her choice too.

My elder daughter pick a name out of the basket..

 She is The Troyers (No blog)!! Congrats Troyer!!

Congratulations to Elaine, Catherine, Deborah and Troyer! Ladies, I will be emailing you for you mailing addresses and I will get your prize packages off to you as soon as possible.

I really must thank you all to took the time to comment. You are all so wonderful and I appreciate every comments from you all. It's fun to hear about your favorite designs and read your responses. You all make me happy!

Okay, now I would like to show you my latest model stitching which I had done on last week.

Four Colly Birds (12 Days of Christmas)
Model stitched 1 strand over 2 threads on 36 count Edinburgh White linen 
with DMC and Gentle Art Sampler Threads.

I'm currently working on the charting for Three French Hens and Four Colly Birds. At the same time, I work on the "Five Golden Rings" model stitching as well. I hope I can add these three beautiful designs into the "12 Days of Christmas" series on end of August.

I wish you all have a wonderful day and happy stitching! Again, if you are not a winner today, please don't be discouraged, I will hosting more giveaways in the future!
