April Giveaway

It is time for another monthly giveaway. And although I know it is Easter Sunday, I will be giving away a selection of new and/or gently used Christmas charts ... see photos. The first photo on the left shows two Victoria Sampler charts: Gold & Myrrh from Thea's Gifts of the Magi series. The second photo, on the right, shows a Rosewood Manor Christmas ornament chart, a lovely little stylized reindeer. And the last photo, again on the right, shows two Calico Crossroads charts, a Christmas stocking called Share Your Heart and an ornament called Holly Mittens as well as Heartstrings Santa Factory April card [Santa with Noah's Ark Toy] and The Sweetheart Tree's Twelve Days of Christmas: Day Four ornament [with embellishments]. So far this year, there has been no rhyme or reason to my stitching, and I am afraid my giveaways are going to reflect that for awhile. I started out focusing on my TW BAP which supplanted my usual practice of stitching Christmas items all through January. Then, in February, just as I was getting a rhythm going with a Bride Tree SAL ornament a month, a Thanksgiving ornament a month, a small/medium Christmas piece a month with a main focus on TW ... I got startitis and needed the cheerful colors of Workbasket's Mermaid's Singing and the spring-like delicacy of the Plimoth scissor keep from Antique Sampler & Needlework Quarterly. Finally, in March, I upset the entire applecart by joining a RR and stitching an overly ambitious border and top panel on my own piece ... almost to the exclusion of all other projects. So instead of having some more appropriately Spring-like items to give away this month, I am stuck back in January ... hence the Christmas chart giveaways.

If you wish to enter your name for this charts 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.

Good luck to all who choose to enter.
