This is my nine hundred and eighty seventh post. That's the last number in the Fibonacci series before 1,000. The next number in the series is 1,597--a long way off. So, I've decided to hold a giveaway to celebrate.
You can learn more about the Fibonacci series here. You can learn more about the golden ratio, golden rectangle, and other geeky fun things here and here.
I know that a few readers aren't embroiderers, so I have two giveaway items--one you can enjoy and one you can make.
The first is a patchwork chicken pincushion. I didn't make it, but thought it was really cute and bought it at a quilt show.
The second is a pattern and partial kit. I bought this project originally because my mom had stitched it and I wanted to make one, too. I've since inherited mom's.
The project is a dimensional (stumpwork) acorn with a beaded cap and beaded edge designed by Liz Turner Diehl. Mom made hers as a door hanger with a tassel.
I just purchased the instructions and then gathered my own materials.Linen fabric, some over dyed threads and three tubes of beads in two sizes (11 and 14).
If you're interested in winning either item, please leave a comment on this post. I will ship anywhere. Please make sure you include a way for me to get in touch with you (e-mail, your blog link, etc.) Please comment by tax day April 15 and will choose winners randomly on April 16.
