Winner of Meet & Greet Giveaway! Once Again

Despite all of the suggestions given to me by other bloggers, many e-mails, and my super-sleuthing, I was unable to locate the original winner of my Meet & Greet Giveaway.  I am so sorry.  I tried.  But now it's time to move on.  So back I went to the random number generator and we now have a new winner! 

Needled Mom from the blog Needled Mom!!

I apologize for not knowing your name, but your blog is lovely and I've just started following. I will be e-mailing you soon. Congratulations!

Recently I interrupted my normal stitching projects to work on a very special one. My boss, who I worked for for 2-1/2 years, retired yesterday. It was a happy day for her, but a sad day for those of us who worked for her. She's an awesome person. I wanted to stitch something for her, and I decided on a bookmark. How perfect -- we work for a library system!
The stitching pattern was an online freebie.  You can find the pattern here.  I changed the colors around and stitched it on 28-count linen. 
I stitched most of it at last Saturday's Stitch Day and then finished it by sewing a seam down the back, right sides together.  Then a good pressing, and another row of machine stitching close to the end cross stitches.  And lastly, I fringed it. 

Fun & quick project!  I'm happy to say that she loved it!
