Win a Beverly's $25 Gift Card!

This month Beverly's is offering 25% off of two books that feature pincushions: Cupcake Pincushions and Pretty Little Pincushions.
So we thought "what a perfect excuse to have a giveaway!"

Pincushions are all the rage, and just like snowflakes, no two are alike. We'd love to see what you come up with. You can use one of these books as inspiration, or come up with your own creation. Just leave a comment with a link to an image of your pincushion, and let us know which Beverly's you shop at. We'll draw a winner on Monday, the 22nd.

Can't wait to see what you've come up with - and to get things rolling, here's a contribution from Laura:

Get Started on Those Holiday Gifts!

Too early? We think not ..... it's never too early to get start on those gift giving projects. Miss Kathy has been busy. Here's a knitting needle case she whipped up. Easily done with a couple of fat quarters and seam binding.

Then she made up this cute purse, that could be used for toting around your latest knitting project. She used a pattern from the Slouchy Bags book. Great ideas - thanks Kathy!

Would you like to win a Beverly's Gift Card worth $25? Who wouldn't? Keep checking back here on our blog to find out how.... and get ready to get crafty!
