Five Golden Rings

Hey stitchers, Ink Circles was invited to participate in the Stitchers' Village Twelve Days of Christmas event.

Today is Day 5!

I always liked Day 5 in the song, because it allowed the singer to hold ridiculous fermatas and arpegiate. It also brings back fond memories of a children's book (with CD) called the Twelve Dogs of Christmas, where Five Golden Retrievers took the spotlight. It still comes up on my iPod periodically and cracks me up.


Celtic Beasties: Christmas or Knot
If you've not checked out the Stitchers’ Village, take a few minutes. It's an online needlework community with activities, complementary charts, and a chatting area. Navigate by clicking on the different buildings to visit different shops and designers. You can sign up to be a member here.

We Had a Drawing! (Past tense)

Send an email to xxx to enter TODAY. The winner will win a copy of the Celtic Beasties:Christmas or Knot AND an ornament kit for the Huddle, shown below. I'll also accept comments made to this post as entries. I'll be drawing a winner's name tonight. (yet to be announced)

  1. Oooh. Me, me, me! I want your Celtic Beasties or Knot and Reindeer Games! I love those ornaments. I still kick myself for not collecting them when I had the shop. Not that I can't get them now, but how stupid was that!
