So, my friends, I have a surprise for you! I couldn't very well have a Christmas in July pattern promo, and not have a fun give-away to go with it! (Even though July is now over!)

I'm giving away a "Needle in a Haystack" Christmas shelf pillow that is just perfect to be tucked inside the branches of, or underneath your Christmas tree, positioned near the fireplace, or placed atop a shelf during the holiday season. It measures approximately 7" x 8".

The hand-embroidery pattern for this design has been available only seasonally so far, and will soon be available for purchase online. I'll be sure to keep you posted on that! But for those of you out there who machine embroider, you are in luck, as the design is already available here at if you are interested.

You have until Sunday, August 9 at midnight to enter, and the winner will be chosen through a random drawing and posted on Monday, August 10. Here's how you can enter:

1. Leave me a comment on this post, and let me know you're out there!

2. Become a follower, or if you are already a follower, leave me a comment to add another chance for winning.

3. Post about this give-away on your own blog, and leave me a comment with your blog address to let me know where I can find it.

4. Grab a "Needle in a Haystack" button and again, leave me a comment to let me know where I can find it.

So, you have four chances of winning! Tell your friends, spread the word, and good luck!
