Fun & games

I thought I'll have a bit of fun with you, my reader peeps! I finally finished the little stitchy project from yesterday and I don't quite know what to do with it, although ideas abound aplenty.


So here's what I'm going to do - all you bloggy buds will get to choose between one of the following four:-
  • a zipper pouch wristlet
  • a pincushion
  • a little kiddy tote, or
  • as is, for you to make into whatever you want
That's right! This is a giveaway with a twist.....to lure out all the lurkers, too. Everyone can play! If you want to play along, just leave a comment with how you'd like to me to finish (or not!) the little piece above. When I finish it, it's yours to keep.

You've got a few days to leave comments. I'll pick the lucky name this Sunday evening, 9th September and announce the winner next week on this here blog. Fun, fun, fun!

And now I must run, run, run!

Edit: It's done, done, done! Stay tuned.

oh is there anything you can't do! I don't think so miss.

I would actually leave it in its hoop if you can spare it and put it on the wall as it looks so cute! otherwise in the corner of a bag!

Awesome stitching Jade!

If I had the chance, I would use it on the pinafore of one of my Happy Chibi Girl dolls (and split the proceeds - haha!)

I’ve seen little pieces of art likes yours in hang on the wall in the embroideryhoop. That would be lovely for your bub‘s room! Oh, I see Corrie had the same idea. But then it must be a good idea! Or I can see her in the right corner of a lovely cushion staring at the moon in the left corner?

P.S. My gosh, I need some cafeine, my first sentence is br... Here it is again: ‘I’ve seen little pieces of art like yours hanging on a wall in the embroidery-hoop!’ = just leave it there!

I would love it to be on a zipper pouch wristlet. ^o^

Ooo is it Little Red Riding Hood?
I would either have it on a wristlet or leave it for me to make a wallhanging.
Thanks for the offer.
It is nice to know who is lurking about. I would love to know what page gets the most hits/looks like flickr does.

Jade said...

Oh so very cute - I do think it would look just delicious as a kiddy tote myself. And your little game worked a treat, "for those who lurk", as you put it, this is my first ever 'post a comment' I am new to this blogging thing, it great isn't it!

monica said...

that is sooo cute!

I'd do a peg bag... I'm in dire need of a peg bag ( :) )

Really nice embroidery.

Mel Goodsell said...

The embroidery has turned out beautifully Jade.

I would also love it in the hoop to hang on the wall or a little frame to sit on my bedside table, or anything would be lovely :O)

I think it would gorgeous as the focal point of a bag....maybe I just have bags on the brain at the moment!
Or beautifully framed up hanging on the wall!
Great job!

Jude said...

I have 2 ideas. 1 = a tote in the fashion of the Japanese Red Riding Hood one that Meet Me At Mikes featured. Or, one of those notebook covers - for special letters to Granny.

Thimbleanna said...

Oh Jade! How can you bear to part with that adorable stitchery? I love Little Red Riding Hood. You've had some great suggestions -- I love the ideas for a frame, the cover of a book and a bag. But I think it would be most adorable on a little smock on your little Bub!

Emskyrooney said...

Delurking for this one!

I'd leave it as is and frame it for my sewing room... sooo cute!

Dee Light said...

I like the keeping it in the hoop for dispay idea, but I also love pincussions.

And well, to be honest I wouldn't mind having it for myself!!!

Just lovely work. I never seem to have time for hand embroidery. Just Wonderful!!!!

leslie said...

pqbnice work. again. and again. i'm going to vote for a pouch. minus the wristlet. is that an option.

kwoozy said...

hehe,... you are a patient gal.

thanks for coming by the blog and for your advice on the market day too! much appreciated :) thank you.

claireswimming said...

I vote for the wristlet! and yes I am a lurker. I am amazed at your creative output Jade. Nearly everyday you have made something and done a post on your blog. You must be superwoman!

posiepatchwork said...

Gosh, what a way to bring the lurkers out, a great carrot you've dangled there Jade. I like the raw finish in the hoop, hang it with a pretty ribbon & da dah!! So pretty, would you share the pattern?? I'm trying to stock up on stitcheries to do while we travel/ leave/ move interstate. With 7000km to travel, right down the centre of Australia, in Summer desert heat, oh & 4 children . . . i'm going to need something to do, inbetween handing cold water around the car!! At the end, when we're all exhausted, i can present each child with a little hand stitched gift as a momento of our fun. Can you see how optomisitic i am. We don't even drive to school, neverlone open road trips. Bet you can't wait to read my posts in January!! Love Posie

Claire Falkingham said...

What a great idea, has got me out of my lurking state! I think a kiddy tote certainly - oh and love your work!

Cosy said...

I think a bag would be cute (kindy or library bag). It's just lovely!!

kristin said...

well, looks like i woke up from my summer hibernation just in time :)

as much as i LOVE pincushions...i could NEVER stick a pin in such a lovely embroidery

i would want to show it off more on a tote or something, but then those can wear out...

so, i have to say...i would frame this lovely piece...and i'm in with the other votes for leaving it in an embroidery hoop as a frame.

it's beautiful by-the-way...is it your design?

kristin said...

ok, so i obviously hadn't had a chance to catch up on my reading and i now see where the design came from (on the previous post)...thanks for providing us with the link to the book :)

Shireen said...

Is it too late for this non-blogging lurker to play? I would leave the pretty stitching as is because a) I can't sew and b) I'm too indecisive to pick from those great choices.
