I'm celebrating my second blog anniversary with a give-a-way, and I have been stitching the small bag shown above, it will be finished ready tonight  and will be the holder for my gift. I like surprises, so at this stage what is going inside will remain a secret,  there will be  two stitches items ( as this is my second anniversary) and a few extras.

If you would like to go in the draw for this give-a-way all you need to do is as follows.
Be a follower of my blog.
leave a comment on this posting.
and tell me what is your favourite  DMC thread colour,  which would you chose as one item will be stitched in that colour.
I will make the draw on June 20th just before I go away so I can stitch the last item while I am up in Coromandel and post out on my return at the end of the month.

 The trip to Coromandel is so I can attend the Coromandel Guild Retreat, this year Ann and I are the tutors.   I am teaching Pocket for Titania and hope to have a new design started to take with me, more of all this later.  Ann is teaching a delightful little needle roll with a Coromandel sampler she has designed on it.  The first of the stitching I posted out this week has arrived, this tiny lavender bag was designed to use left over narrow strips of linen.

I love your little bag, it would be a honor to win it.
I really love the lavender bag, the rose tree is just beautiful.
My DMC color I guess since I love pink and hearts it would be 605.

Hi Lee,
This is exquisite as always! I would love to win this beautiful creation. My favourite DMC colour is Pink 603, I just love any of the pink colours but 603 is fresh looking and bright, I would choose to stitch a little embroidered pillow with it.

I am already a loyal follower! folloer

I love your work Lee as you know _ i have a piece I bought. My favourite DMC shades are the 908 - 912 range of greens. Very odd as I love yellow best of all colours but i love that range especially with purple and mauves.
