Giveaway No. 5

The last, and certainly not the least, giveaway … some of you may recognise as the freebie Quaker Time by Gencat (Lune d’Automne) .  I’ve finished it into an octagonal shaped hanging ornament.  My poor photography may fool you into thinking that it’s been stitched with black thread, but I’ve actually stitched with DMC 930, a very elegant grey/blue and one of my all time favourite colours. Take a peak at what’s looking for a new home…

    This octagonal shaped hanging ornament is very lovely! Yes, it does look like it has been stitched in black thread, but I can kind of see a blue/gray cast to it, after I read that that is what you used!

    Have a great day!
