February Common Thread Give-a-way

Glessner earrings

This month I am pleased to welcome blogger and artist Deborah Glessner as our guest artist. Deborah is offering a beautiful pair of earrings that she designed and made. These earrings are 2-inches long with silver filigree at the bottom. The beads are glass-faceted beads. The bottom one is a very muted smokey color with flashes of purple, depending on how the light hits it. It is separated from a smaller glass, purple-tinged bead by a Swarvoski crystal ring. It is finished off with a pearl at the top. To qualify to win, simply leave a comment on Deborah’s blog And So it Is Journey between now and Thursday at which time a random winner will be announced.

Also, please check out the other participating artists:

January Common Thread Give-a-Way

The long winter months are upon us and unlike the animals that have to store up their treasures and hibernate, we have the privilege and delight of remaining active and creative, using the time indoors to produce wonderful items like Jane McMillen’s acorn pincushion, her give-a-way item this month. Jane describes it as such “4.5” long from tip of stem to bottom bead and about 3-inches wide across at widest part. It is made of three different felted wools and stuffed with polyfil. It is both machine and hand-stitched, and embellished with feather stitching done in  pearl cotton. It is one of my latest designs and is a symbol of health, wealth, prosperity and god luck, making it a fitting New Year’s give-a-way prize for sewer and non-sewer alike.” And, so it is.

To qualify to win just pop on over to Jane’s blog before Thursday and leave a comment. The winner will be chosen at random and announced on the participating blogs on Thursday. Please stop by the other artists’ sites and see what they have been up to during these winter days as well.
