And the Winner of the Great Common Thread Give-Away for January 2013 is…

Congratulations to Imagine You will Fly... for being selected as this January’s winner of this penny rug style pincushion!!  I want to thank all of you for entering this drawing and my apologies for leading some of you to believe that it would be an easy statistical win.  I hadn't a clue that so many of you would sign up to win this pincushion and I thank Maria, Kim and Nancy for encouraging your readers to visit my site.

I was touched by your comments of wanting to win this pin cushion to be a special gift for a dear friend or relative; or those of you who would like it for yourself as it would match your sewing room or bedroom; or needing a pincushion after using the same old one for years, or because your's was destroyed or eaten by your dog; or you were simply anxious to win yourself something pretty. I enjoyed hearing that it reminded you of something your mother or grandmother would make and am truly sorry that there was only one give-away. You are all deserving of winning this pennyrug pincushion and your feedback has truly been most inspiring!

Please check my Etsy store in another few weeks.  I plan to do a Valentines Day Sale so that your dreams of gifting yourself or someone special can become a reality.  I will meanwhile sew, sew, sew.

I am excited that on the first Monday of every month there will continue to be a featured artist with a give-away and I assure you that their crafts will delight you as well! My turn comes around again this spring.

Thank you again for your interest in my work and I would like to leave with you Karen L's comment, "One can never be too thin, too rich or have too many pincushions!"

Imagine You Will Fly - Please email me at with your contact information so that I can get your pincushion off to you!
