Sew 'Five' ? Brown Bunnies, Sew Peaceful and a further giveaway!

Barbara of Barb's Rambling - stitching 'n things has also stitched Sew a Brown Bunny and sent me the above picture. This was Barb's first attempt at stitching on 40ct linen and didn't she do a grand job? She got carried away with her brown bunnies and so this really should now be called 'Sew Five Brown Bunnies'! The reverse has a pretty Spring green fabric embellished with a green heart button in the centre. I smiled when I saw this as my own pillow, although I backed it with the same linen I used for stitching, I stitched a green heart on the back! After Barb's hard work she RAK'd this pillow to a bunny loving friend.

I also heard from Maggee of Stitching Devotee with a picture of her finish of Sew Peaceful that she also gifted to a friend last Christmas. It's stitched on either 25 or 28ct of white Lugana using DMC threads from her stash. She tells me that her friend loved it so much she still has it hanging up in her office surrounded by Easter decals.

A big thank you to Barbara and Maggee for allowing me to post their beautiful pieces.

Both Sew a Brown Bunny and Sew Peaceful are still available *here* or by clicking on the CHARTS button on the sidebar. The 2010 Christmas freebie, Sew Red, Sew Blue and Sew autumn freebies are also still available but must be requested at checkout.

And last, but certainly not least, Amy of Cross Stitch and Cupcakes is having a most generous 3rd blogoversary giveaways. Yes I said 'giveaways' as there are five of them! First up is for a selection of Aida fabrics in various sized and some Charles Craft huck towels. The second giveaway is for a selection of linen fabrics. The third giveaway is a limited edition box and Santa kit from Mosey n Me along with three limited edition thread packs from The Gentle Art. Number 4 is a selection of pillow kits from Pine Mountain, most with their pillow forms and the final giveaway is a selection of charts from Amy's stash - some are even kitted with floss, fabric and embellishments. You can enter multiple giveaways by leaving a comment stating which numbers you are interested in. If you post a link of your blog you will also receive a second entry.
