June Cottage Progress and a Giveaway!

I've been plugging along on the June Cottage making a few color changes to the original color palette. The house is now red instead of white and has different color frames as well. I think it's a nice change as now it reminds me of a chocolate covered strawberry!

Now if you like my dandy black polka dot q-snap cover and would like one of your own plus some other great stuff I'm having a giveaway! I'm including a pack of DMC Variegated thread, a Bent Creek chart "Harvest" and a hand made swarovski fob made by me! I also want to mention that the Q-snap cover (8x8) is made by a wonderful seller on Ebay trulyin2stitching (not affiliated or recieving anything from the seller just like their stuff!).

To enter please leave a comment including your email, link my giveaway to your blog if you have one and if you like my blog feel free to join up! The winner will be chosen by random number and another person will win just a q-snap cover as a runner up giveaway. Spread the word! You have till June 1st at midnight PST to enter. I'll post the winner June 2.

I wanted to add I've finished my June Cottage and that if I get 50 people to enter I'll add a cross stitch book to the Giveaway pack. You don't have to have your own blog to enter just leave a comment if you don't and you'll be entered. Spread the word and good luck!
