Winners Announced and a New Design Shown

I've been pretty busy lately working up new designs for my patterns. This is the latest. It's called The Gardener.
I have been working really hard trying to get three new designs worked up. I have to make samples of them all as well as writing them up.  I decided that I was pushing myself too hard when I sewed completely through my finger yesterday with the sewing machine! I thought I would make it through life without ever doing that! After all, I'm careful. At least I thought I was. It didn't hit the bone and I'm fine although my finger is a little sore. The idea of it is worse than the actual "accident"! It's a shame though that I had to change a needle only 5 minutes after putting a new one on!
And now for something pleasant! The winners of my giveaway from the post on Tuesday!

The winner of the two little red lipstick towels from Tuesday's post is #6 (chosen by random number generator). That is Cheryll, from Gone Stitchin'.Congratulations, Cheryll!
The orange towel and the pink one (shown in the tutorial) go to #21(also chosen by random number generator), Charlene S. of Geema's Wonderings. Congratulations to you, too, Charlene!
