I’ve never tried something like this (giveaways), but once upon a time I went to this really great store called Yarns Unlimited in Santa Monica & picked up some yarn & buttons. I made a neckwarmer to send to a friend of mine, but ended up having enough material to make two! So as a way to say, “thanks for taking interest in my little projects”, I would like to send this one to a reader.
All you have to do is leave a comment telling me where you would fly off to if someone offered you use of their hot air balloon for the day. I will use a random number generator to choose a winner at the beginning of November, so you have until midnight of October 31st to submit something. One entry per reader only please!

Another small, simple embroidery in the hoop. I have always wanted to ride in a hot air balloon despite being terrified of heights. Something about the colors, the way they seem to travel so smoothly, makes me think that being way up in the air wouldn’t be scary at all, kind of like how being in a plane feels more exciting than, “oh gosh, why am I next to a cloud?!?”. Anyway, my fantasies of hot air balloon flight will have to be restricted to stitches in cloth for now.
