Perfectly Pleasing Pincushion Parade 2017 Link-up Page!


This is it!  You are on the link-up page for the 3rd Annual Perfectly Pleasing Pincushion Parade!
 

Yes, the dates read Sept 4-15 but we have decided to give you an extra day to get your entries in........If you post by 11:55 PM on September 16th you will still be able to participate! You may link up as many pages as you like so that you can use older posts if you wish but only one link per person will be counted towards prize eligibility.  However you can get an extra chance by blogging about the party and another extra chance by posting the button to your blog.   Please leave a comment on this post and let me know you have done so.  For your convenience I have posted a "grab my button" on my right side bar............

This year just for added fun we are also giving a consolation prize to the winner of the "ugliest pincushion"....do you have a pincushion you made that didn't quite turn out the way it was supposed to....or maybe a well-worn favorite that has seen better days? I know I do! Include a separate photo and tell us it is your "Ugly Pincushion Entry" for a chance to win a nice prize.

Do you remember all our fabulous prizes??......Well I do! We have so many nice sponsors this year and since our last Parade post we heard from yet another.........Shabby Fabrics.com is donating a $25 gift certificate to some lucky winner!  Shabby has a wonderful website full of yummy fabrics, precuts, patterns, Block of the month clubs....gosh just click on the link and go see for yourself! 


           
 
We have included links on this post for all our sponsors.  Please thank them for their support by visiting their websites to see all they have to offer then head down to the bottom of this page and link-up your pretties!



 
The first 35 individuals to link-up will get a $10 gift certificate from Embroidery Library!   



One lucky winner gets a $25 Gift Certificate from Hawthorne Threads from the Parade

Another of our fabulous blogging friends, Kelli from Seriously I think it needs Stitches is donating your choice of 2 of her patterns if you are the lucky winner........Kelli has had her patterns featured in Quiltmaker's 100 blocks series and has also been a featured designer in the Triangles on a Roll quilt market and festival booth in Houston.........

We are giving away a $10 Starbucks gift card and some assorted fat quarter packs.............








 So now all you have to do is link your page below!

Gosh, this is so exciting! I'm starting my stitching today!

I've blogged about your Parade, and have tried to add the button, but somehow I don't seem to have all the code. Not sure where I've gone wrong, can you help?
