May Giveaway

In keeping with my efforts to downsize my stash I am giving away these five gently used charts [chart only - no button packs] in the Word series from Shepherd's Bush. It is not a complete set. I only purchased those I wanted to stitch up. The selection includes: FLAG - July, LEAF - September, HOWL - October, GIVE - November, and STAR - December. In order to keep to an accurate scale for the suggested buttons, you would need to stitch these on 10ct tula or a similar fabric. But you can adjust button sizes downward [or leave the buttons out entirely] and stitch on higher count fabrics. I used them to make classroom banners but, if stitched on 14-18ct aida or 28-36ct linen over two, they'd make cute decorative cubes or small framed pieces for those who like to decorate for the various seasons.


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.

Riona I would love to be entered for your drawing for the Shepherds bush charts. Apart from not very often having the funds to purchase from overseas I don;t have any LNS that stock charts from the US. Any I do have I have been lucky enough to gain in trades or a RAK from other lovely stitchers. Thank you for the opportunity to enter your draw and once stitched I will make sure I pass them on to someone else who will also appreciate them.

I would love to have these charts. I love SB designs and these are the ones I would also like to stitch! I already have Tula in my stash too. I am getting things ready for a few give-aways on my blog. Had a major set back with emergency surgery last week but am doing better now. Hoping to get myself organized and back on track. So watch my blog for future give-aways =)

Oh...I would love to win these. Love the PIF idea...great way to make room for these lovelies!

Those are great designs. I've finally begun stitching on something other than aida and I'm looking for fairly simple patterns to hone my skills with. Those are darling and would fit the bill plus I love to decorate for different seasons!
