GOS ,and a Giveaway

I stitched the GOS challenge in the hope it would bring my stitchy bug back home . It helped a little bit , but not enough .
I was going to make a floss tag , but it seemed too obvious , so I hummed and haahed a bit before deciding to combine the challenge with a little giveaway.
As today is our wedding anniversary , I'm going to give away this floss bag , and fill it with 8 skeins of red floss , one for each year we've been married , so I'll also give you eight days to enter.
Leave a comment on this post before noon on 19th May if you'd like a chance to win , and I'll choose a winner , simple as that.
I stitched it on some even weave that was lying around, using DMC 321 and made a little bag. As I had the sewing machine out , I also finished off the prizes from my last competition (sorry for the delay ladies) , so they will be in the post this week.
Close up of the stitching.
My little bug has been visiting the last few days , but I'm doing secret stitching , so the reveal won't be for a while.
Thanks for dropping by,
Cath
