My Very First Wee Giveaway!!!

Hello my dear friends,

I have been really busy last week but I did find time to create something little. I would like you all to know that I am going to have a wee giveaway - my very first one!! I am so excited for this!!!!! I would like to thank you all for being so kind and caring and for all your lovely comments you have left me in the past.

The gift I am giving away, of course is none other than a pincushion!!!!

And this is it ...

I made this little creation specially for my giveaway and I hope you all like it.

This pincushion is made from a vintage children's spoon that I found in an antique store last week and of course I had to add some of my loved crochet pansies to it.

All you have to do to enter my giveaway is leave me a comment on this post and it would be nice if you were a follower.

I will draw the winner on June 2nd which will make my day really special (it's my birthday)! Good luck to you all!!

Have a peaceful and creative day,

Karen B.

And of course, I am a follower.
