Everyone was given a number. All numbers were added to a bowl. One was drawn out.
The winner is.....Brenda Petherbridge from Alberta, Canada. Brenda take a look at what Barb and I found for you.
The needlecase is old....found at an antique booth in Nantes, France. It looks like a sprig of mistletoe on the needlecase. I thought it was just too cute! The buttons are from the Paris flea market. The small tape with the numbers 179 was used to mark children's clothing. The children were sent to school....sometimes a distance away. The numbers were sewn to the clothing as many times the children couldn't go home for a period of time. After the clothing was washed it would be given back to child #179. Brenda, I hope your address just happens to be 179. Well, what can I say? Just thought the tape was really wonderful. It could be great added to a pinkeep.
Also, there are hat pins from the Paris flea market. I love to use them in pincushions. They are vintage. The thread keep has some vintage thread and the small pattern came from a cross stitch shop in Paris. (DES FILS ET UNE AIGUILLE)
Next another pattern for you to stitch and a frame to finish....again from the cross stitch shop in Paris. (We really enjoyed our visit there!!!)
A bit of alphabet tape....
These three lovely patterns were donated by Crown Stitches. The shop owner just happened to be in Nantes at the show and had read about the contest. Isn't she the best? She's from the Netherlands and has a blog too. The small scissors are from Kelmscott Designs. I put in a red pair because Barb lost her's when we accidently left them in our carry-on bag. In France you can't bring scissors on the plane.....so we want you to have a really tiny pair you won't loose when you travel.
We had to do a second prize too....there are 7 winners for this.
1. Misato Mikoshi from Japan
2. Barb Norris
3. Pauline Reitano
5. Marie Pasternak
These sweet cards were found in the cross stitch shop in Paris. One for each second place winner.
Winners please send your address and I will send out the prizes. Congrats to all!
