have you heard? psst....there's a giveaway here too!

If you spend any time clicking around the world of embroidery online you have probably already heard about the premier of  &Stitches. In case you have not, let me be the one to give you the good news. Nicole of "Follow the White Bunny" and Carina of "Polka and Bloom" have collaborated on a new ezine all about embroidery. It's jam packed with fun and useful information, interviews, patterns and ideas and beautiful photographs. You are going to love it!
I was lucky enough to be asked to contribute a pattern for the first issue and here it is. I wanted to design something that would let people play with different color combinations since the theme was color. It's right there in issue one available right here.
isn't this the most beautiful and enticing cover you have ever seen?
OR......
If you are feeling lucky .....

I get to GIVE one away to a So September reader - yea! Yes, that's right. Leave a comment and take a chance. I'll pick and announce a winner on Monday, Jan. 16th and Nicole and Carina will take it from there. Good Luck!!
