The Longest Loving Word Prize
After the sneak peek email for this month went out, Kristin emailed me that she had an idea for a long term of endearment–which we all now know was Hunka-Hunka Burnin’ Love. I think I replied to her that she might want to wait to see what the prize would be to decide if it was worth it.
And then, life’s distractions got in my way and this giveaway prize didn’t get made in a timely fashion.
While watching the Olympics last night, I finally got around to it . . . and here it is: a small sewing kit with a beaded heart on the outside and pockets and felt on the inside. It’s a quilted, embellished copy of my well-used Moda giveaway version.
Here’s how I fill mine: small scissors, a packet of needles and hand piecing templates in the large pocket; thimble and a spool of thread in the smaller double pocket; a few parked needles and pins stuck into the felt, with small blocks or cut pieces inside the felt pages. It works for me and I hope it will be a beautiful and useful gift for our longest phrase winner this month.

Even if you don’t enter the lotto this month with a long word, you can have one of these for your very own . . . I have posted a step-by-step tutorial here: My Portable Handwork Sewing Kit.
