March Giveaway

I reached my 100th follower on January 4 [after I had already posted a chart giveaway], but since I stage my giveaways on the 4th of every month and 2/4/11 was devoted to celebrating my 500th post, the celebration of the 100th follower was deferred to March. At this time, I actually have 110 followers. I thought it would be nice to do something different, something more personal. So I prepared an ort jar with a lid stitched in a nice multicolored floss.
If you wish to enter your name for this giveaway, the following 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

Good luck to all who enter.

I would love to be entered in this giveaway. I am thinking of starting to collect my orts and see the progress.

Thank you for this blog entry! I have my own Ort going in a plastic ornament that will surely be full by December. My mother had one on the tree when I was a little girl and I just loved it. I think it went out with the tree one year though so I had decided to start my own recently. I am getting ready to start on Esmerelda's House this weekend and found your blog when searching for a google image of it. I'd love to see how yours came out when framed. Thanks and keep stitching!

Ooh, Ooh, can I win twice in a row? Am I being too greedy? You're right, I didn't think so either. TEE HEE. Hoping to win, but not expecting to. I would love this little handmade. How lovely a personal thing is. Anyway, my orts are now residing in a wine glass that I would really love to use right about now.
You are far too generous, Riona.

I'm so sorry your feelings were hurt. I think your ort jar is great, I just didn't enter to safe you shipping charges should I win since the jar I'm currently using is ok (but only "just" ok, lol!). So please count me in, and maybe I'll get lucky after all!

Am I too late? I hope not. I'm not allowed to comment at work because the Big Bad Bank your husband and I work for hates Blogspot. And Wordpress. But that's a whole 'nother story. By the time I get home, life gets in the way of blogging and reading my web pals.

Riona, I'd like to let you know how much you inspire me. I'm working on my husband's Christmas stocking now (Dimensions "Santa's Arrival") and everytime I get bored or discouraged, I read your blog and get my mojo back. Thank you for that. I didn't even know what an Ort Jar was until I read it here and then had to Google it to investigate further. I started one, but it's not as adorable as the one you're giving away. Thank you again.

So a lot of those page visits were mine, and I apologize for not commenting sooner! I really like your blog (I tell your hubby that all the time) and thanks for the giveaway!
