Picnic in the Park

I am thrilled to announce a brand new embroidery/quilt pattern by Melissa Stramel of Lilac Lane!  It is called Picnic in the Park, and I think it is simply GORGEOUS!  Okay, perhaps I am biased a teensy bit (I model stitched a bicycle for her!), but see for yourself!

And here are some closer shots of the finished product:

 I just LOVE how detailed the quilting is!  And the colors are a dream!  I'm so proud to be a small part of this fantastic project!  And because I model stitched for her, I can tell you the pattern is so easy to read and really fun to stitch!  Melissa is a fantastic quilter, and she makes adorable dresses for her girls (and their dolls!), so please take a look at her blog - you'll find plenty to "ooh" and "aah" over!

So, in honor of this wonderful occasion, I announce my first ever giveaway!  All you have to do is go to Melissa's blog and show her some love by leaving a comment on her Picnic in the Park Pattern post.  Then, leave a  comment on this post letting me know you did so.  One lucky winner will win all the DMC floss needed to stitch this project.  You don't have to be a follower of my blog, but if I reach 100 followers by the end of April, I will also include the 14 ct Aida needed to stitch the project!

The winner will be announced on May 1, so you have plenty of time to enter, and please spread the word!
