June Giveaway

As I have mentioned before, I am trying to simplify my life and reduce my crafting stash. My first tactic is to give away any charts I have stitched, will never stitch again and have no earthly reason to hang onto. I never cease to be amazed at just how much of my chart stash seems to fall into this category. I have been giving away 5 or 6 charts a month for nearly a year and could go on for another year or two. I have been trying to group my giveaways in some logical fashion, either by theme or by designer or both. I hope the recipients of all my past giveaways have enjoyed my charts as much as I have done. This month's giveaway will be no exception: the theme is bees ... nice and summery for a June giveaway. This is actually a PIF on my part since I received these four charts from Nic last summer. I have enjoyed stitching these charts and hope you will as well.

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.

I would love to win these charts to stitch for my great-grandson. He loves bees!! In fact he has participated in the great "Sunflower Project" for the past 2 years. He plants a specified number of sunflower seeds and when the plants are in bloom he sits in the garden for a required amount of time and records the number of bees that are buzzing around his flowers. This is a study to see where in the USA the bees are and the number as well. Did you know that there aren't as many bees in existance as there used to be? I didn't know it but DGGS does and this little boy studies bees and plants flowers that attract bees so that maybe their numbers will increase.
Thanks for your contest!
Leta and Christian.

I would love to stitch these bee charts. They are so cute. I want to stitch them for my best friend who has hives on her property. She has all sorts of "bee" things in her collection but stitching is not her thing. These would make a great addition to her collection. I have been friends with her since I was 9 making it over 40 years now.
Thanks for your consideration. I love you blog and 123 stitch friends as well!!

I would love to win these charts because I don't have any summery type charts (lots of snowmen though!) I think it is very nice of you to do this.

Rita said...

Thanks for the contest. I'd love a chance to win them; for some reason bee themed charts are really appealing to me lately.

Thank you for this chance.
Not only is B my first initial, but my second.
I recently finished a 'Sampler of Bbbbbb's' which had a few bees amongst it, and I'd like to continue the theme. If I can stitch snow themes for Christmas, when for us it is beach and surf time, then there is no reason why I cannot stitch summery things in our winter - might even help to make me feel warmer!
Thank you for this chance!

What a generous giveaway.

Such cute charts, I would love to stitch these.

I love PIF giveaways, you get not only the pleasure of winning and stitching, but the pleasure of giving, too. I would love to be the new temporary home for these charts.

I find bees to be very fascinating in how something so small can make something so delicious! And the honeycombs, amazing!
I would love to stitch any of these charts, thank you for a chance!
