Birthday Giveaway!

ETA: GIVAWAY IS NOW CLOSED

48 years ago today, at 4:21 AM, my parents welcomed their first born, and both sets of grandparents had their first grandchild - ME!
This sweet card was sent by people I don't remember.

Here's the birth announcement my parents sent:

To commemorate, I am giving away this mattress pincushion, stitched by yours truly:
 
 Mausimom free design on 32 ct natural linen with NPI silk.

Entry deadline is 11:00 PM, Pacific Daylight Time, March 30.  I plan to announce the winner on March 31.  Good luck!
