...that I am sitting here tonight feverishly working on a new project. Yes, Annemarie and Harmien would be proud of my sudden case of startitis.
So what does this farmer's handkerchief shopping bag have to do with this blog entry you ask? Everything! On Monday, it was our lace afternoon which ended up being just Sonja and I. It is not very often that we are actually doing bobbinlace anymore as we stitch mostly. I arrived at Sonja's with a little gift for her and she had a gift for me on the table too. It was this shopper from my favorite TV show 'Boer Zoekt Vrouw' which is adapted from the British show 'Farmer Wants A Wife'.
The wrapping paper ended up being a gift she had not even expected. I loved it the minute I saw it and as normal my brains fired up with an idea right then and there. Look closely at the paper and you will see that it is cross stitched design.
So.....as I do.....I grabbed my needle and thread and some leftover cloth and look what happened. Isn't Sint just a cute little guy? There are four designs on the wrapping paper - Sint, Piet, schimmel (Sint's horse) and a gift. I have 3 more to stitch and then have an idea of what to do with them. But I will save that surprise for another day...
Surprise? That is exactly what I would love to do so here are the next two sets of coasters that you can win. Just leave a comment on this post and I will be drawing names in a couple of days once again. This is set 1...
...and this is set 2. Remember that if you do not have a blog, you must leave me an email address or email me as well as comment in order to be entered. I want to be sure I can contact the winners.
Good luck to you all!
