Yes we are! and it’s not a bead party either…well what’s the party all about? In case you haven’t noticed, mostlyneedlepoint.com 2nd blogoversary came and went! Do you think I forgot all about it? Of course I didn’t and its never too late to have a party. And you get the presents! First we have…
Thank you to Sundance Designs for giving me their new Roll~N~Go Bead tray. It is cleverly made from beading mat material, a little bling added on the corners and a cleverly sewn in ribbon that ties it all together. Place your beads on the mat and bead away. Do you know that the best way to pick up the leftover beads from the mat and get them back in the tube? You just use the cover from the beading tube and slide it along, pour the beads back into the tube and repeat until all the beads are picked up. Or if you still have some more beading to do and don’t want to put your beads away, just roll it up and tie it with the ribbon! Too clever. I must add that this really works best if you work at a table rather than at your stand. I just need to keep the cats from walking through my pile of my beads!
Beads are not included and there is one for the lucky winner and the other one is for me!
The next gift I have for you is an exclusive magnet made for Kirk & Hamilton Designs to co~ordinate with that darling Polar Bear Canvas of theirs. The magnet is not even on the market yet and will only be available from 1 shop! Thanks to Jeremy of Kirk and Hamilton for giving me the magnet…which I promptly lost and then to Needlepoint Now who came to the rescue and quickly replaced it for us. Long story.
How about a Bead Buddie? Meredith is sending me some more…so you would get a brand new one! No beads included…
How about a set of Oli Clips? These are magnetic and slip onto the edge of your canvas!
Last but not least is this project bag from Access Commodities which is great to hold your extra beads, needles or whatever for your project. Along with a needle ID card and a pad of sticky notes.
I want to thank everybody who reads my blog, and those who read faithfully everyday, those who comment and especially those who mention when I don’t include pictures of Sylvester and AlleyCat! Originally when I started the blog, I was going to occasionally add a picture of them, but after so many of you would ask “where are the cats today?” well the rest is history! I love it when someone mentions “hey I read your blog everyday!” and I thank you. AlleyCat and Sylvester thank you too.
So these 5 presents are for you…leave me a comment to be entered in the giveaway and if you really want one thing or the other over another mention that too. I will use some sort of random generator to select the winners. The Bead~N~Go tray, the Polar Bear Magnet, the OliClips, Bead Buddie or the project bag is what you have to choose from. Sorry AlleyCat is not included in the giveaways! I will leave this open until next Wednesday March 6th and announce the winners on Friday March 8th.
Speaking of having a party…AlleyCat is having way too much fun. I was going through my stretcher bars when she got ahold of one and was having her own party. She never ceases to amaze me and entertain me! and until next time…keep on stitching
