Pincushion Giveaway ~

Howdy Folks!
In the spirit of my group,
BLESTB's Pincushion & Pinkeep launch on Ebay this month,
I have a sweet little pincushion for you!
no, it's not patriotic ~or~ red, white or blue...

but....

I made it from 5 different early-looking calico's, in blues and browns...
the center has a cross stitched alphabet done 1-over-1 in red thread
on a slice of early4oct. linen from my stash of antique textiles...
it is 'flat-stuffed' with some of my raw sheep's wool
to help keep your pins and needles sharp,
and on the back I've stitched a little patch with my initials...
it measures just 2 1/2" x 5"...so sweet to tuck into your basket, place in a wooden bowl with drieds or set on a shelf or cupboard...heck, you can even use it to hold your pins! LOL!
To be eligible to win this little sewing needful from
Notforgotten Farm,
all you have to do is leave a comment for me on this post
and/or become a follower of this blog.
I'll gather up the names on June 9th, place them in a basket
and pick one lucky winner!
(winner's name will be posted on the evening of June 9th on this blog)
...just my way of thanking you all for visiting me here so often...

I do so enjoy looking for 'reason's' to post,
and am glad that I can perhaps
brighten someone's day!!!
Hugs to you all and Blessed be!
Lori
