Free design for ~Re-Purposing in 2012"...

Have you been looking at your old clothes or fabric items with new eyes?
You saw what I made HERE using a $2 dress (scroll down through the re-purposing posts), and I hope it inspired you to start some re-purposing of your own. 
Today I am sharing a simple design of mine to thank all of my 1700+ followers and blog readers, but also to challenge you during February!
Using fabric I cut from two old shirts, and the coat hanger ribbon ties from a t-shirt, I stitched up this simple wall-hanging from a design I sketched earlier in the year.
~Someday Roses~
I am sharing the design for you to stitch up and make your own re-purposed ~Someday Roses~ project!
Download the design HERE.
What will you make with ~Someday Roses~? 
Send me a photo or link to your blog post when you have used the design in a re-purposed project and you will go in the draw to win this book by Sandi Henderson...
I'll accept entries until February 29th, so start designing! I will randomly draw a winner on March 1st. If you use the design twice you get two entries! Perhaps you can get a head start on Christmas gifts?
Remember, you must use the design in a project made from re-purposed fabrics to be eligible to enter the challenge!

The free design will only be available for download until February 28th.

Have fun!!

It's always nice to receive feedback on a blog post, so *thank you* for taking time to comment!
I will try to reply via email unless you are a 'no reply blogger' which means you'll have to check for my reply in the comments. Of course, life is a rather hazardous activity, isn't it? So if I don't respond to your comment that's the reason why - life simply stepped in...
