Our little corner of Vermont is still getting plenty of showers, so this month’s Common Thread Give-a-Way is a much needed punch of color.

Jane McMillan, is this months artist. She’s giving away a felted fruit pin cushion – and you get to choose from the collection above.  With the exception of the Strawberry cushion, all the cushions are filled with crushed walnut shells which keep pins sharp.  The Strawberry is stuffed with polyfil.

To win a fruit pincushion of your choice, just leave a comment at Jane’s blogLittle House Home Arts.

March Give Away

It’s the first Monday of March, so it’s time for the Common Thread Give-a-way.  Last month Maria gave away on of her drawings.

This month, in a nod to the winter that won’t quit, I’m giving away a print of a watercolor and mixed media drawing of nearby Ice Pond Barn.  The print is on 8×10 archival paper in a protective matt.

I’ll be picking the winner (using Random.org) and announcing who it is on Friday morning.

And the winner is….

And, the lucky winner of Maria Wulf’s sketch is Catherine Petee!
