My birthday month giveaway.....

is all put together and ready for you ladies to sign up for.  So far this is what I've come up with:
De fil en aiguille cross stitch magazine

1 piece of 28ct. Natural/Cream Tattersall Linen
Full spool of Embers by HDF Silks

1 skein Kreinik Silk Mori
1 skein Hackberry by Nina
Small pink tin 
Cat shaped wooden thread holder
Small french whatnot box

Like I said this is what I have so far.  I know that by the time March 31st rolls around, I will have added to this but we'll let that be a surprise.

This giveaway will be open until March 31st when DH will pull a name out of a hat.  This is open to all followers no matter where you live.  Good luck to everyone....
Blessings as always,

P.S.  I almost forgot the most important part.  I didn't want to buy it now but I will also have some Godiva Chocolates added to the box.
