Get your crafty on

I have to tell you, Want Not regulars are not only an extraordinarily good-looking bunch (because you are—I especially love those shoes), but you’re also very generous. Recently, lovely reader Crissy emailed me to say that her order from Heather Bailey had netted her a few extras she didn’t need, and did I want to give them away on Want Not?

Of course I did. Isn’t Crissy pretty?

So here’s what we have: The Henrietta Turtle pincushion pattern with the Gladys fabric kit to make one, and the Fresh-Picked Pincushions pattern booklet with the yellow pear fabric kit to make one. Both are fun little projects that yield pretty little pincushions in Heather Bailey’s signature fabrics, so if you’re a crafty type, this giveaway is definitely for you!

Want to win one of them? Pay attention, now—first you need to go review the contest rules and regulations, then come on back here and leave me a comment telling me if you want the pear or the turtle by 8:00 a.m. Eastern (that’s 5:00 a.m. Pacific) on Monday, April 26th, 2010 for a chance to win. If you don’t pick one your contest entry doesn’t count, so please follow the rules. Winners, as always, to be selected by random number generation (and ability to follow the rules!) and whatever else strikes my fancy. Okay, just the random number thing.

Ready? Go!
