Chasing Away the Winter Doldrums

I thought I'd try and lift a few spirits with a giveaway of three charts that I enjoyed stitching last year.  First up is Prairie Grove Peddler's Lighthouses Candle Mat, second is JBW Designs Sampler Tree and finally, Cedar Hill's Berry Patch Rabbit. That way there is something for everyone: those who want a little bit of Summer, those who stitch Christmas year round, and those who like traditional designs adapted from medieval tapestry motifs.  My tastes are nothing if not eclectic.

Since it is evening and impossible to take an outdoor photo of the charts, I thought I'd show you my own finishes instead.





Please leave a comment below stating which chart you would like and why.  I will announce the winners next Friday.  The offer is open to all.

Thank you so much for the chance, I would love the third chart, the rabbit. I have stitched a few, there is something about rabbits that to me represent joy and innocence...and soft and furry LOL.

Thank you for the giveaway! I would really love the JBW sampler tree. It's pretty, and I relate more to that than the lighthouses (we have a different style!) and rabbit.

Thank you for sharing your stash! I particularly like the tree with the bunnies underneath. Why? Because I had a very precious grandbunny who wouldn't come out from under our tree one Christmas because she was having way too much fun eating the wrapping paper off the gifts!

Very generous prizes on offer. If I am lucky enough to win I would like the Berry patch rabbit as I have a friend who likes them and this would be a great one to stitch as a gift for her.

Thank you for the chance to win.

Hope you are feeling better today.

The JBW Tree for me, because as much as I am OVER all the snow, I know how many ornaments I have to have done for the grandkids for next Christmas, and this is one I don't have! Thanks so much for the give-away. Now to go read your blog....

I would like the JBW Designs Sampler Tree. I'm in the process of making some Christmas ornaments for my granddaughter and this would be a nice one to add.
