Guess the Pattern and WIN!!

So I've been teasing my readers for months now on this new pattern I've been working on. I took this picture last weekend and have made significant progress on it since then. I'm hoping to have it completely finished and listed in my shop in the next 7-10 days. Yay!!

Here's how you win...

If you are able to guess what the pattern is I will provide you with a coupon code for $5.00 OFF any $10.00+ purchase from my ArtFire shop. You can buy whatever you'd like; patterns, magnets, craft supplies, whatever. :)

There's no limit to the number of people that can win. I'll provide a coupon code to each person that guesses correctly and you can enter up until my next post when I announce the winner(s) and show the finished product.

Sorry Emma and Leah ~ you lovely ladies aren't eligible to win since you both already know what the pattern is.

Happy Stitching!

Buttons, Buttons, Who's Got the Buttons?

I haven't been doing very well this year with one of my few resolutions...releasing one new pattern per month. However, I HAVE been busy.

This picture is a sampling of some of the buttons I've been stitching lately. Some of them are still available in my ArtFire shop and some have found new homes. These are all 1-1/8" buttons. They can be used with the wire shanks left on the back to be sewn onto a project or I sell them for other uses...I can glue magnets to the back, attach them to hairpins, or just about anything else you can think of. I can also stitch them on many different colors of linen fabric.

If there's something you're looking for and you don't see it in my shop, just drop me a line and I can create a custom listing just for you.

Happy Stitching!

P.S. Don't forget, for the entire month of March 2011 all of my FABRIC COVERED BUTTONS (excludes hand stitched buttons) are on sale in my ArtFire shop when you use coupon code BUTTONS20 at checkout.

Newsletter Update and Coupon Codes

My intention was to start a monthly newsletter in January, but so far time has not been on my side.

One of the sections I plan on having in the newsletter will be a monthly coupon code for great savings. In the meantime I've decided to start a topic on my discussion tab on my Facebook page that will give all of you a continual and current listing of coupon codes that are available in my ArtFire store. This way you can easily find them without having to scroll through weeks or months worth of Facebook postings.

Here's a link for the tab...

And for those of you that don't use Facebook, here are all of the current coupon codes...

20% off all fabric covered buttons (excludes hand-stitched buttons) thru 3/31/2011

Free shipping on your order for the next 4 customers

50% off your entire order for just ONE lucky customer

Coupon codes will need to be typed exactly as shown above to get them to work. I would suggest copying & pasting them just to be safe.

Happy Shopping!!

Another New Start

March 1st and so much to look forward to...
Winter is almost over, we're getting more daylight in each day and soon I'll be able to take my various WIPs onto my back deck to stitch in the fresh air!

With today being the 1st if a new month it's time for me to start yet another new pattern as I continue my version of the Crazy January Challenge 2011.

I originally had on my list to stitch a Celtic Cross, but considering it IS March I decided I would switch and do a Celtic Shamrock. This pattern is one of my designs that I'm still working on finishing, so I may not get started on my stitching tonight, but will certainly try. Either way, I'll have pics to share with you of whatever I get stitched in about the next 10 days or so.

Happy Stitching!
