    I also wish you Congratulations on the Second Anniversary of your wonderful blog!

    Thank you and many Blessings dear friend,


  2. I am completely in love with your art work. It would be so cool to own a piece of your art!! Put my name in the hat, please!! Hugs

  3. Wow, I'd love to own one of your pieces - thanks for the chance! And happy blogiversary.
    And just in case I win, you can reach me at maugreall at gmail.com.

  4. I am so glad to have found you and your beautiful creations, and your beautiful soul! Congrat's on your anniversary and I hope for you many many more!
    Your creation is so so gorgeous Suzi!

  5. Dear Suzy,
    You are so sweet to have a giveaway of one of your beautiful creations! Happy Blogiversary to you.
    You are so right about blogging too. It has greatly inriched my life as well. Meeting such wonderful friends that I would have never met otherwise. Like you! :) You are very sweet dear Suzy and very talented and you never cease to amaze me with your talent.
    Happy Valentine's Day to you and have a wonderful week.
    Hugs and thank you for the chance,

  6. Hi Suzy,

    Your work is so beautiful. ♥ I would love to have it hanging in my home.

    Please throw my name in the hat.

    Steph ♥

  7. Hi Suzi, your wall hanging is just fabulous! All the rich texture and beauty that it presents is just wonderful! Anyone would be happy to win this. I know I would treasure this little gem and hang it in my studio for inspiration. Thank you for being so generous with your art....I love coming here and soaking up inspiration from your beautiful creations....

  8. What an absolutely beautiful piece. Whom ever wins this piece will be blessed each time they look at it! I would hang it here in my craft room for daily inspiration! Your work is just awesome!

    I'm a follower and with Blogger, but will sign up on Linky, as I am asking folks to do the same for me. You would think Bolgger would let us know if this weren't true to keep everyone from jumping ship. Google is doing some different things with their privacy issues, or lack there of. I guess we must all just wait and see.

    Again, Suzy, thank you for such a beautiful giveaway!


  9. Hello Suzi, Happy Blogaversary! what a lovely piece of fiber art! The layers and colors are wonderful! This is a generous giveaway. Thank you for the opportunity to have a piece of your art!

  10. Hi, Suzy
    Did you mean February 29th? Not Januray 29th? Just curious as this seems to be a very new posting.
    Blogger is driving me nuts! They have changed all of the formats for comments on my blogspot.com so I can't even moderate it to the 'anonymous' setting for anyone to comment... now,it looks like they are getting rid of that option. I guess I am safe as my blog is a blogspot.com blog. Whew! I have no clue what they are trying to do but it is frustrating a lot of people. Maybe they want to make some money, who knows.
    Anyway, please enter me in your giveaway for this stunning wall hanging. I almost can't find words for your creations as they always leave me speechless from the beauty of what you have created.

  11. Quite beautiful Suzy! There is so much interest with all the different textures and I'm loving all those shades of green peeping through here and there!

    ♥ Happy Valentine'e Day ! ♥

    Big hugs and warmest wishes,
