I would love to enter into this draw, your pattern is so lovely!
What I love about embroidery.....I love that you can decorate almost anything with embroidery and that it is so relaxing to sit down after a busy day with your embroidery hoop and needle and stitch beautiful pictures.
Thank you for this wonderful oppurtunity and also for the wonderful 'Silk ribbon flower tutorial' you posted, I also love the miniatures.
God bless,
amme

I love it. I just finished a bag with Sue Spargo embroidery with wool and silk threads to embellish.

Kel, you know I don't do a lot of hand embroidery, but I think it's wonderful method to create with, drawing with thread and creating texture with stitches. I love your pattern, but don't include me in the giveaway as I don't know when I'd get around to stitching your beautiful design.

I think she's lovely. I don't do embroidery much, but like it as a car project, a quiet project and like it that my kids can draw a picture and then embroider it and it's something we can all be working on together.
Great pattern, well done.

Congratulations on listing your first embroidery pattern in your shop! Your new pattern is lovely!

What I love most about embroidery is that even with the most basic stitches, I can create quilts and toys that are meaningful, beautiful, and fun to play with (or keep warm with).

Embroidered items are really a gift of yourself that you share with others...a kind of legacy gift...that reflects your creativity, love, and patience.

Great Giveaway; the pattern is beautiful! Thanks for the chance to win.

I love embroidery because it brings back wonderful childhood memories. Embroidery was my first venture into the world of crafting and sewing.

Great pattern, I love it!!!

I enjoy hand embroidering - I find it very relaxing!!!! I love the satisfaction of the finished project, knowing that it is something handmade and knowing the love that goes into it.

So whimsical Kel. Lovely. Don't enter me though- I won your last giveaway (plus I don't have the patience for embroidery at the moment lol)

What a sweet embroidery. I love how you have given her such a wistful expression as she walks along in the rain. I think that one of the lovely things about embroidery is that it is so easy to carry around and do anywhere. Thanks for the chance and congratulations on putting together your first embroidery pattern!
