February Giveaway

Earlier this week, I pulled out my Homespun Elegance Sheep as a Valentine's Day decoration. This little guy has a blanket for each month of the year. The charts were issued as the Wooly Tyme Club. These charts are all quite lovely and are perfectly sized to make ornaments, cupcakes, and pin cushions as well as the blankets for the sheep, as originally designed. Obvously, I have used the charms that came with each chart in my own stitching but the designs can stand alone quite easily. The charms were true "embellishments" and were never intrinsic to the design itself. Although this is an older Homespun Elegance Design, I believe it is still in print so anyone wishing to stitch it as originally designed should still be able to order the sheep pillow. The photos below show the designs for the other months of the year.

March, April & May

June, July & August

September, October & November

December and January

If you wish to enter your name for this charts only giveaway, the usual conditions will apply:
-- open to all stitchers
-- leave a comment below as to why you are interested in the giveaway
-- include an e-mail address in your post if clicking on your name will not lead me to an e-mail link -- a winner will be selected on the 10th of the month and informed by e-mail
-- winners are asked to commit to PIF charts to other stitchers through message boards, guilds or stitching groups or to donate the charts to a women's shelter or prison, a nursing home or some other venue where a stitcher would enjoy them

Thanks for visiting my blog and good luck to all who choose to enter.

That sheep is adorable! I really like those. I'm going to go off and find them on the web to bookmark them.

In the meantime please enter me in your giveaway. Then if I don't win, I'll be able to purchase them myself.

Have a great day!

Your sheep is so cute!

I'd love to be entered in the draw for the charts.

A sheep wouldn't be lonely, as we have a number of stuffed and stitched sheep here, following a funny incident involving my partner, a puppet and the tourist info centre in Bakewell... and of course, if I was fortunate enough to win, I would of course Pay It Forward...

Dee said...

This is a wonderful series-the sheep looks so warm in his blankie!

Would love to stitch one of the designs for a senior homebound neighbor who loves sheep.

Please enter me into the giveaway.

The seasonal theme of this set drew me to your contest, so versatile too. I'd enjoy stitching these as they'd make a lovely yearlong continual gift. I'd be happy to do a PIF. Thx for the chance:)

Kay said...

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the sheep! ( I also like the Meowy Tyme Cat, but haven't done him yet!) The monthly designs are great. I solemnly (sp?) swear to PIF the charts when done. Thanks so much for the chance to enter.

I would love to enter for these. I have this wooden holder that I bought years ago and haven't found just the right thing to stitch for it yet and these would be perfect. It has two dowels where you just slip on your stitched piece and can change it out for different seasons and such. These are the perfect size for this holder. I would definitely commit to PIF when I am done with them.

Thanks so much for the chance and you have a wonderful blog.
