Click Us

Guess who won the 50th post giveaway at Lil Birdie Stitches? That would be me. Can you believe it?! The daylight was fading when I decided to take some pictures of my prizes so all I have so far is one of the cupcake scissors fob. Look how cute it is! I totally love it! And, click the photo so you can see how nicely and neatly Birdie stitches. I'll show you the other goodies as soon as I take more photos.

And, now for stuff you can click:

Jennifer sent me a link to the Owls of Summer cross stitch freebie at Be-Stitched. They're all wearing bathing suits. I love the one in the bikini! (Thanks, Jenn!)

There's a cute embroidery pattern of a "happy boy" sitting on a toy horse (donkey?) on Cata's Craft [link via Stitch By Hand Flickr group]. This would be a good design to use for crayon tinting. By the way, Stitch By Hand is having an Old School Sewing Competition. Entries must be 100% hand sewn and contain fabric and thread. More info is here.

Claudia has posted a unicorn (hearts and a rainbow too!) embroidery pattern and another one with a set of dishware engaged in some athletic activities on her blog, Stitchado.

Jenna at CorgiPants posted the last of her chicken scratch patterns on Sunday. To recap, (and to help you search engine users out there), the patterns are a bird, a snowflake, a windmill with tulips, a butterfly, Autumn leaves, a flower and several borders including one with hearts, plus there were extras on Whip Up and Needlework News. Start here to see all of Jenna's free patterns.

Thanks to Denise at Needlework News for letting us know there's a cute x-stitch freebie of a happy hippo and her happy baby playing at the beach from The Chart Shop. And, that there's a terrific stash giveaway at Needle 'n Thread.

You can find a daily list of links to a bunch of projects from blogs, forums and crafty sites at One Pretty Thing. There are also links to contests and giveaways too.

Something that caught my eye on One Pretty Thing was a link to detailed instructions for making a crazy quilt pincushion that has a CD for a base over at Ivory Blush Roses I'm not usually a huge fan of crazy quilting but this is beautiful. Look at this second pincushion. So pretty!

That should keep you clicking for a while.
