Giveaway

I mentioned a while ago I needed to have a giveaway, since I found some duplicate patterns in my stash.  In the spirit of the season, and following the tradition of generosity of other blogging stitchers, I'd like to host a giveaway instead of trying to sell them.  I think there might be a chart or 2 missing from this pile, Jenny Bean's Halloween Sampler should be there too.


There will be more than 1 winner, number yet to be determined based on the number of entries.  I might also include some other treasures (OMG, I haven't shown you the button stash I found!).

I'm not doing anything fancy like multiple entries for jumping through hoops, mainly because I want to keep it simple for myself.  Just be a follower and leave a comment in this post.  I'll do the drawing on New Year's Day, to give everyone that's started their holiday vacations and travel a chance to enter. If you get one of the holiday charts, sorry, no chance of getting it done this year, think of it as a project for 2012!  If you have a favorite chart in that pile, or don't care for one, put that in your comment and I'll try to work around it.  No sense in someone getting a chart they don't like.  Be honest, you won't be hurting my feelings.

Me, me I want to win!
I like the look of the charts in the photo, many are new to me.
In the spirit of Christmas, if I win and don't fancy stitching a particular one I promise to pass it on in a PIF Giveaway.

Wow, what a great thing to do. The holidays are a great way to look over our stash and find homes for those who would love the patterns. I am a big Blackbird design person so if you don't mind I might have that pattern. Thank you again and Happy Holidays,

I can't believe someone (besides me) find duplicate charts in her stash :)

I would love to have the Heartstring Samplery pattern-seems I am on a roll with Beth's designs-love em!

Look for a January start on my blog of some familiar "special" charts :)

Gabi said...

What a wonderful give away. Reminds me that I have a double one too and should give it away...lol.
I would love to win any of your lovely charts. My absolute favorite is "Peace" by Birds of a Feather.
Wishing you and your family a blessed Christmas time. :)

What a generous giveaway! And buttons too! Buttons are hard to find in this big down I live in - it's quite a drive. I'm a follower too...

P.S. I've already stitched JB Halloween (and loved every stitch).

Myra said...

What a generous giveaway Mindi. I love them all but am especially partial to "Red Reindeer" and as you know I love Halloween so Jenny Bean's Halloween Sampler would be welcome as well. I would surely PIF any that I might win.

Thanks for the chance and Merry Christmas!
