God grant you the light in Christmas, which is faith;
the warmth of Christmas, which is love;
the radiance of Christmas, which is purity;
the righteousness of Christmas, which is justice;
the belief in Christmas, which is truth;
& all of Christmas, which is Christ.

Stitching Stuff

The 12 days of Christmas are not yet upon us (for those of you who are confused by this, the 1st day of Christmas is December 25, the 2nd day is December 26, etc).  However, I am doing a 12 Days of Christmas giveaway now   : )

Below are photos of the 12 items in the giveaway.  All items are brand new/unused. Each item will be won by one person.  You may sign up for more than one item if you wish.  However, if your name is drawn for one item, it will be removed from all remaining items.

Here's how this will work.  Please read carefully.

1.  This giveaway is only open to current followers of my blog.     

2.  Please do not post this giveaway on your blog or place it in your blog sidebar.

3.  If you want a chance to win one of these items, leave a comment on this post indicating which item(s) you would like to have a chance at winning.  Once again, if your name is drawn for one item, it will be removed from all remaining items.  You can only win one   : )

You must leave your comment no later than 12:01 a.m., Eastern Standard Time, on Saturday, December 1.  I will draw names later that day.  Good luck!

Leanna said...

Oh my goodness, Shirlee! What a generous giveaway!
I would like to be considered in the drawings for Item #3, Item #6, and Item #9. I don't have a blog...simply because I don't want to win some Cyberspace Blogging Award for being the most effective antidote for insomnia. Seriously...but maybe winning one of your gifts could change that, a little. Do you think?
Thank you, though, Shirlee, for writing such a sweet, honest, and funny blog...the photo you posted of the Christmas tree bearing your answer to "The Finishing Dilemma" still makes me laugh!

Jane said...

A very kind and generous Giveaway Shirlee ~ Santa Claus will be very jealous of you!

Thank you so much

Hi Shirlee - I would love to be entered in the drawing for item number 8. Although they're all fabulous, my stash drawer is rather hefty so I will limit myself to the one I like bestest of all :)

Hope you're having a wonderful day!
