The Winner of the Snag Nab-It Giveaway

Remember last week's posting about the Snag Nab-It? And the giveaway, sponsored by Jane B.?

The contest ended yesterday, so I collected the names and asked Jane to draw one out of a hat.  (Ok, well, she picked a random number and I counted down the list until we found the winner's name, but you get the idea.)  The winner is….

[drumroll please!]

Dawn B!

[wild applause]

Congratulations on the win, Dawn.   Could you please email me so I can tell you where to send the stamped, self-addressed envelope?  I am at chillyhollow at hot mail dot com.

The Spring 2018 Mystery Revealed (and Updated)

Actually, only a little of the mystery has been revealed.

The mystery class at Bedecked and Beadazzled for Spring 2018 will be this lovely bird and polka dot-themed piece from Ellen Giggenbach.  It's called Fantail.  What Ruth will do to embellish it is To Be Revealed….

I'll update this as Ruth pulls rabbits (and bling and ribbons and all other forms of fun) out of her hat.  To start, Ruth does Jessicas!  And there is a link to a video to show how to make Jessica stitches.

Ruth continues adding circles to the design in various interesting ways.  All Dotty!

Ruth then manipulated stitches and added a flower on top in two places.

And now we have silk ribbon leaves!  Looks like only the bird is left….

And we are done!  Now we have to wait to see how Ruth finishes this.
