Just last night I remarked to my husband that I now had 49 followers on my blog, and that I wanted 50, since that was a nice, round number. So this morning, I was pleasantly surprised to find that another wonderful person had joined; I am so excited! It is just such a joy to be able to share my obsession with people who understand it so well. :)
In honor of reaching that 50, I have decided to have a give-away! I have chosen 10 stitchy goodies to give away, which I will mail anywhere in the world. Here is how it will work: I will post pictures below of each item. Please choose the one item that you would most like to win, and leave a comment with your choice on this post. If more than one person chooses an item, all the names for that item will be placed in a bag, and my son will draw one winner. All comments must be left by 8pm Central DST (this post is being published at approximately 5:30pm in my time zone, just to give a reference) , this coming Saturday, June 2. I will post the winners on June 3; I won't ask for emails when you comment, so you will need to check back here to see if you are a winner, then email me at rrowe"at"new.rr.com (though using the @ in place of "at"). ;)
Phew! I think that covers it, but please let me know if you have any questions. Now for the pictures!
This first picture actually shows two of the prizes; there are two bundles of 14 skeins of DMC Color Variations cotton floss, so two people have the chance to win one bundle each. There are 14 different colors, and each bundle has the same colors:
Next is a small Dimensions kit, Monogram Elegance, which includes 18ct Aida, floss, needle and instructions:
Then there is this adorable Sue Hillis chart, Happy Birth*Day For Girls. Sue actually had a contest on the 123Stitch MB, asking for names for baby samplers, and she chose my niece's name for this one!
Here is Lizzie*Kate's ABC Halloween chart; it originally came as a kit, but I am giving away the chart only:
As I am a pretty big L*K fan, I also have the chart "Cat Lessons For People" to give away:
And another kitty design, as well (remember, I have 7 cats, so it only makes sense that I have a lot of cat charts!); this one is Brittercup Designs Britty Kitties III, with charms included:
Not to totally ignore the dog lovers, I am also giving away X's & Oh's Puppies!. I ended up with two of these, because I bought one, and then won one; I had to have it because I once had the cutest Samoyed pup!
I also ended up with two of Bent Creek's Quaker Moon, but this time only through my own stashaholism; this comes with the button used in the design:
Finally, in case none of these charts appeal to you, I'm giving away a 13" x 18" of Silkweaver's Poltergeist on 32ct opal Lugana. It's hard to get a good pic of this, but IRL it is a light mauve-y/gray color:
I hope everyone can find something they like. I so appreciate the comments I"ve received, and hope you'll all stick around for a time to come!
