Thank you all so much for entering my New Year's/Thankful giveaway. You have been so kind with your lovely comments... it is just as well winners are drawn randomly, as I just would not be able to choose between you. There were 65 entries in all, and I truly wish I had 65 sets of patterns to give.
Alas, I could only choose 2 winners. This afternoon with the help of random.org comments 3 and 14 were the lucky numbers of the day. A big congratulations to both winners, who have each won a full set of "Thankful" patterns! I will be emailing you both shortly.
Comment number 3 was from Julie C., who said...
What a stunning pattern, the colours you have chosen are beautiful and compliment the pattern. thank you for giving us the opportunity to enter this giveaway.
Comment number 14 was from Roslyn Power, who said...
Hi Melissa, thank you for the opportunity to be in the draw to win this beautiful package. I have been following your blog for quite some time and agree this quilt is just so beautiful. Good Luck to all that enter. (((HUGS))) Roz
Thank you to everyone who took the time to enter, and for following the creation of "Thankful" over the past months.
Today, I thought I would share my "Thankful" cushion with you. "Thankful ~ Block 1" includes a 16 page Needleturn and Dimensional Technique Booklet as well as full instructions to create a 12" cushion using the block. I've chosen a more "country look" for my cushion... with soft whites and beige with what I think of as a "murky red".
I used a small check for my roses this time, adding a little more "country" to the block.
I've enjoyed seeing the design in a different combination of fabrics. I've been dreaming of roses in white, yellow and soft-mauve too!
There have been quite a few emails over the past weeks regarding where "Thankful" can be purchased from...So, I've put together a "Thankful Stockist Page". You can find the link to the "Thankful" stockists just below the photo albums on the left side of the blog...
The link looks like this...
or click here ---> Thankful Stockist List if you would like to visit the page straight away. There is quite a list already. You will find stores providing "Thankful" as a Block of the Month program with or without fabric kits, as full sets of 6 patterns
and "Thankful ~ Block 1" for individual sale.
I'm in planning mode this week! 2012 is going to be filled with new One Day In May adventures.
I look foward to sharing them with you.
