Happy Thanksgiving Give Away

It has been a while since I "blogged" ... the week without power burr (I never would have survived as a pioneer) ...the week cleaning up the yard ...the week plus baking eight 5lb tubs of cookie dough for my church fair  etc.   Somewhere in there I decided to attempt  making a small evening bag to auction off at the fair silent auction.  I came up with 3 different designs pictured below.  Each is in a circle of about 6 inch.  The 6 small circles will be cut out and stitched together.  One side is a design the other side is my "chop" (signature)


The bird is back and I like him much more this time!!
A few flowers with lots of chenille leaves.
This is a flower fashioned after one of my favorite Lesage pieces level 7 Ravel.
Leave a comment guessing which of the three designs I decided to put on the front of the evening bag. 

The winner will be selected at random from the correct choice of design.

The winner gets to choose between the two designs I did not use on the bag.  (the design only)  
I will announce the winner Monday morning along with  pictures of  the completed evening bag.

P.S.  After all that has happened I am grateful that the storm was not much worse. 

Wishing all of you a very grateful and happy Thanksgiving Day!!

I love them all Shirlee. Do you have to be present at the fair to bid?

I'm guessing the single flower! They're all beautiful and would make perfect bags. Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving. We have much to be thankful for.
I guess the last one, on black.

Happy Thanksgiving, Shirlee! All your designs are beautiful, and I am sure they would all be lovely on a bag. I will guess the center motif - the flowers with the green leaves. Hugs, Cathy

I'm guessing the black flower. The other two wouldn't wear as well on an evening bag.

Happy Thanksgiving! I'm going to guess that you are using the black & silver flower -- that would make a stunning evening bag.

They are all beautiful in there own right but I think the last one the silver & black flower it looks more evening!!

I am going to say that you will go with your original thought and use the "bird". Whatever you choose will be fantastic! They are all amazing.

They are all beautiful but for an evening bag I would probable go with the Lesage inspired flower.

Rachel said...

I would guess the last one in black and silver, because it's the most versatile.

Okay, I am guessing the bird; he came out so cool and he was your original idea and would make a really fun and funky bag. I hope I guess right! It would be so amazing to see some of this in person. I just love what you have been doing!
