Stitcher's Giveaway!!!

I have been thinking about having a Stitcher's Giveaway for a while now & today is the day   : )   I am going to play this a bit like all you pros out there.  First of all, here is what you'll win if your name is drawn ...


I apologize ... as always ... for the less than professional quality of my photos.  I know God has blessed me in various ways but professional photography ability is not one of them.  Anyway, the winner of the giveaway will receive what is pictured above ... Two White Houses chart by Little House Needleworks, way more than enough 28-count Lambswool Jobelan to stitch the project (the project calls for Basketweave linen but I am substituting the Jobelan), & all the DMC threads called for.  The finished design will measure approximately 7-3/4" x 5-1/2".  These items are all brand new, never opened, never used.

So what do you need to do to have a chance at this giveaway?  

1.  Leave a comment on this post telling me you want to be included in the drawing. 

2.  When you leave your comment, tell me about something you hope to do or hope will happen in the coming year.  You'll get an extra chance to win if you do   : )

That's it ... sort of.  Do read on   : )

In addition to the giveaway I am going to draw 4 more names & these 4 people will each receive a little runner's up gift.  I will tell you that 2 of these gifts are from Blackbird Designs & 1 is from With Thy Needle & Thread ... cross stitch related of course   : )   I haven't decided what the 4th will be yet   : )  

You have until 11:59 p.m. CST on Friday, December 23, to let me know you want to be included in the drawing.  I will announce the name of the giveaway winner & the names of the runners up on Saturday morning, December 24.

Hi Shirlee! I would love to enter your giveaway--having grown up in a white house and living in one now, this chart would be perfect! Next year...hmmm...I would like to get braver and try new finishing techniques for my ornaments, maybe a heart shape and a stocking shape--just branch out a bit.

Thanks for the chance--will email you with my information :)

Ooo, I love this design, pls enter me for a chance to win.
Next year I'm hoping that our investment property will sell and ease our financial burden a little. (Its a bad property market at the moment here and its been on the market for 7 months already).
Thanks for the opportunity.

Hi Shirlee, I would love to be entered in your generous giveaway, please.
In 2012, I want to learn the art of rug hooking ~ I have always admired them and have met some very talented ladies on the blogs that are willing to teach me how to hook. I also want to find more time to stitch for myself. I've done many samplers and so enjoy doing them.
I'll send you an email with my info.
Have a Blessed day,
Jean

What a perfectly fun giveaway Shirlee. Seeing as I won one of your giveaways just a few months ago, I'll sit out. But I will share my wish for the coming year with you - although I'm sure you could have guessed it - it is to find some balance in this new chapter of my life so I can find, and take, the time to do things I enjoy - such as stitching and hooking, paying attention to my home, and spend more time with my mother.....Wishing you everything bright and beautiful - and all the others the best of luck in this generous giveaway....Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

My hopes for 2012-
Personal - is to keep up with all the stitching activities I've signed up for.
Friends - I would like Blogger to stop playing up and fix all it's problems.

International - world peace and an end to poverty.

Oh my. What a lovely giveaway. Please include me. Something I want - need - to do next year is go away with my husband. We have had a really tough year and nearly split on a couple of occasions and I know a break would do us both so much good. xx

Please include me in this give away.

This next year I am considering becoming a "Big Sister" to a young person in our community. I retired last year from teaching and miss working with young people.

Happy holidays!

I am a follower and would love to be entered in your giveaway....I plan to do more sewing with my daughter in 2012. She is just beginning to learn to sew and I'm so happy that I can teach her.

I would love to be entered in such a wonderful giveaway!! There are many things I want to happen this year...personally I want to find a new house and begin to really make this place my HOME, and not just a place to be...when you've been a renter for several years, it's limiting to what you can do.

For my children, I would like to culture their creativity...they have recently been interested in the many things I do...sew, cross stitch, knit...and I'd like to pass on to them.

Merry Xmas, Hugs, Kaye xoxox

Great giveaway! I'm hoping we will add a new grandbaby to our family in the coming year - we've been waiting for a long time and would be so thrilled if this happens.

Michelle said...

Hi Shirlee. Thanks for visiting and commenting on my blog. I have become a follower of yours - I hope thats ok. Please include me in your giveaway its lovely. In 2012 I am hoping to really crack on and learn Hardanger. I have started but I have a long way to go. I also aim to stitch from the charts I have here rather than keep buying - oh and stitch more for me!

annie33 said...

What I would like for 2012 -- to be well. Well enough to even have a baby, before it's too late! And if not, I know God has other plans for me.

THanks!
