The Monthly Giveaway

It seems like I just mailed out the last giveaway. October simply zipped by me. Let's hope my time sense returns to normal this month. I'd like to savor the days rather than wonder where they went. This giveaway will be a touch different. No gently used charts are on offer this month. Instead, I will be offerring some full skeins/cards of Olde Willow linen floss. The colorway is what I tend to think of as a traditional sampler colorway. The photo is pretty accurate as to the color values ... at least it is on my computer monitor. Obviously there will be no PIF aspect to this particular giveaway, so the rules will be somewhat abridged:


1. leave a comment as to why you would enjoy receiving this giveaway.


2. if clicking on your name does not lead me to an e-mail address, include one in your message.


Good luck to all who enter.

I would love to win this give a way as I am just starting to use the hand dyed thread. I am loving them and the colors are so so pretty. I am used to dmc and aida and am now begining to use 28 ct laguna and cotton and silk floss, what a change.
Thanks for the give a way

I would like to win these beautiful threads because I have only ever used DMC, and after stitching for 30 years, have decided it's time to expand my horizons, lol! Love seeing your finishes on the 123 Board. Thank you for the chance to win.

Thank you for the chance to win these threads, Riona. I have been stitching with my old faithful DMC and would love the opportunity to try these threads. I have several quaker style patterns that would look great with these threads! I enjoy reading your blog and I think I signed up to be a follower - I also enjoy seeing your posts on 123.

Thanks again!

These are beautiful colours, I don't have a LNS anymore and don't like buying threads online as you're never sure of the quality/colouring but I trust your judgement!
I love samplers too and would enjoy stitching one with these threads.

Carissa said...

Oh, those colors are beautiful! I think they'd be great to stitch a Quaker piece for my living room with. I'd love to be entered in your giveaway. I've seen those threads on Stitch n Bobs and thought about getting some as she has them on sale, but she doesn't have any pictures of them, so that's why I'd love to win them.

Those are lovely! I've never even hear of that floss type and you made great color choices.

I haven't a particular chart in mind yet - but you know it would look great!

Thanks for the opportunity.
