My First Giveaway!

Thanks for the sweet messages welcoming me back! :D You guys are the best.

And, because you're so good to me, I’ve decided to have a giveaway. On August 3rd, I will have been blogging for six months (SIX MONTHS! Can you believe it?) And to celebrate this milestone, I’ve put together a few goodies for the lucky winner.

1.      The finished “Jaime Broder.”

This is an adorable freebie from Passione Ricamo. I finally finished it up on top of a box that is big enough to hold your current WIP if you need to take it with you on a trip or car ride, or if you just need to hide it from your cat.

2.      A tiny pincushion jar, one of several I’ve made. This one is by far the cutest. The top is a pincushion, and the jar itself can be used as storage for pretty much anything – needles, buttons, ribbon, charms…

3.      Three full skeins of DMC thread (433, 434, & 744), already neatly wound up on cardboard cards. I tried to pick common colors that you’d all definitely have a use for. I don’t know if that’s the “thing” to do, but I’ve done it. :P

4.      A 1 x ½ yard of a pretty, light-purple cotton fabric.

5.      An issue of “Creation Point de Croix.” I realize this makes two French items, which is odd because I don’t speak French. But it is the only cross-stitching magazine I could get here, and I’ve carefully checked all the charts inside (lots and lots of charts) and they’re easy to read, no worries.

6.      Southwest Borders pattern foldout.

7.      An “eye” bracelet, as a token from this side of the world. Any jewelry with the “eye” is super common here. It’s supposed to protect you from other people’s jealousy and evil intensions, and it’s a big part of our culture.

My first-ever giveaway! I’m excited. This is going to be fun. Two very simple rules, if you’d like to enter:
1.      Be a follower of this blog, and
2.      Leave a comment on this post.

You’ll have three weeks to enter. Good luck! “And may the odds be ever in your favor!”

Sorry, couldn’t help myself. :D

Hugs and kisses,
