Announcing the giveaway winners!!!

I am a little late with the posting of the giveaway results...just want to say first off, I loved all of your sharing with me, your ideas, loves, and suggestions!! Not that I am running out of ideas, I have books and random notes, with enough design ideas to last a long time, BUT I did so want to hear from all of you and what you would like to see, so thank you from the bottom of my heart!

If ever you would like to share more ideas, please do email me with them, always a treat to hear from you, and I will take each suggestion very seriously, that you can count on! Thanks for your participation so much!

And without further ado, I have picked 4 people...could these following people please email me, at their earliest convenience with their two top favorite designs from Tree of Life Samplings?

Emma Rose Friendship Framed Picture!!

Here she is, first to release in the Emma Rose Series, Emma Rose Friendship! I hope you like her and want to stitch her, she is done in Needlepoint Silks on 40 ct Lakeside Vintage Buttercream linen...of course, you can choose any count of fabric! Lots of fun colors and lots of fun details, don't you think?

This is NOT a great picture, but I didn't have much time for my usual photo shoot. But I think that you can see the design well! It should be clickable, to view a larger size.

I am still stitching Emma Rose Christmas, but hoping to have it ready in the next few weeks. Emma Rose Friendship and Quaker Peace will be releasing next week, so if you are interested, let me know.

I would like to ask for your input...I probably won't be releasing anything else new until the Nashville Market in February of 2011! I would like for you to post what it is you would like to see me design...if there is a particular verse, theme, type, season, etc you would like to have in your possession to stitch, I would love to know about it! Post in this thread, or feel free to email me personally. I will be picking a couple of names from a draw, whether you post here or email me, you will be counted in that draw. You will receive your choice of released patterns, if your name is drawn!

Thank you so much for your encouragement, your support and your thoughts! They are more appreciated then I can express to you! I will be having the drawing on Friday, October 22, 2010! Feel free to post about it on your blog, if you wish and you can share the picture of Emma Rose Friendship!! Thanks again!!!
