Our little corner of Vermont is still getting plenty of showers, so this month’s Common Thread Give-a-Way is a much needed punch of color.

Jane McMillan, is this months artist. She’s giving away a felted fruit pin cushion – and you get to choose from the collection above.  With the exception of the Strawberry cushion, all the cushions are filled with crushed walnut shells which keep pins sharp.  The Strawberry is stuffed with polyfil.

To win a fruit pincushion of your choice, just leave a comment at Jane’s blogLittle House Home Arts.

When you’ve been to Jane’s blog, take a few minutes to check out the rest of our artists: Bedlam FarmFull Moon Fiber Art,and Pugs & Pics.

Bounty

I’m participating in the  Common Thread Give-Away again, and November’s featured artist is Kim Gifford.  

Whether she’s writing about her beloved pugs or her distinctive photographs, Kim’s work is humorous and heartwarming.  I got to know Kim and her work through the Hubbard Hall Writer’s Project.  It, like she, is infused with an infectious joy.

This month Kim is giving away a matted  8″ x 10″ drawing entitled “Bounty,” printed on watercolor paper and matted to 11″ x 14.”

To enter the contest, visit her website atwww.PugsandPics.com and leave a comment for her anytime between Monday through Wednesday of this week.  The winner will be announced on Thursday.   Then when you’ve commented on her site, take a minute to visit the other artists in our group –   Jon Katz, Maria Wulf, and Jane McMillan!
