Another Giveaway

It's been a while since I offered a giveaway.  The last was on October 18.  I have been going through some binders where I have stored some charts I have stitched.  There really is no earthly reason to hoard these charts.  I'll never stitch them again.  I'd rather pass them on to someone who will enjoy them.  Over the next few months I will stage a few themed giveaways.

So, first, some sampler charts:
Barrick Samplers' The Gilded Cage
Bent Creek's Acorn
Heart in Hands' Heart in Hand Sampler
Homespun Elegance's The Stitcher
Homespun Elegance's Witches Stitch, Too
The Twisted Stitcher's Pumpkin Gingham

As usual, I ask that you commit to passing these charts on to another stitcher once you are done.   It has been suggested to me that I allow myself to be taken advantage of by folks who just turn around and resell the charts I give away.  I reject that notion.  My experience has been that 99% of the folks I encounter are honest.  It's the folks who feel compelled to e-mail me about the supposed sins of others that I worry about.  In any case, once I pass a chart on it really belongs to the recipient to do with as he/she pleases.  Do I wish the recipients pass them on?  Certainly, but I choose not to worry about that which I can not control.

Leave a comment if you wish to participate.  You may put in requests for more than one chart and improve your chances of receiving something.  If clicking on your user name won't bring me to a profile that includes your e-mail address, include it in your post.  

Good luck to all.

I am naive also then. I had no idea stitchers actually did that to each other. I give away almost all of my charts when I am done stitching them. sigh.
Thank you for the chance to win a chart. I would love a chance at Gilded Cage or The Stitcher. Thank you Regina.

It is a sad thing, that a few people ruin it for the rest, isn't it? Thanks for the giveaway--not going to enter right now...but maybe in the future. Of course, I should be doing this myself! I DO share all my finishes with my stitching buddies! Does that count?

I've always liked the gilded cage chart. But I'm a fan of Kathy Barrick's designs. So I'd be happy to be in the running for that. Thanks so much for your kind offer.

Hi! I just found your blog from An Arizona Stitcher. I've gotten back into stitching and am looking for blogs to follow for inspiration I don't want my stitching bug to go dormant again.

I would love a chance for a chart! I will enter for The Stitcher or Acorn. Thank you for the giveaway!

It was nice to see you on 122 again! I would love a chance at the Gilded Cage, the HIH Sampler, or the Stitcher.
Thank you and Merry Christmas!

I give my charts away also and do not worry what the recipient may do. That is on them.

I would like the gilded cage please.

I would like to try for the Bent Creek Acorn and thank you for the generous drawings you are having. I would be delighted to pass the chart along when I am done with it.

I give many of my charts away after stitching them. After sending a group of 4 charts to another stitcher a few years ago, I saw 3 of the charts posted on her For Sale album online only a few weeks later. I was a bit taken aback. As one of your commenters, Maggee, said, "it is a sad thing...." I like to think the woman who sold my charts is the exception and that most people are kind. I would love to enter for The Stitcher or Witches Stitch, Too.

By the way, Gilded Cage is a beautiful pattern - I stitched it 6 months ago and you are reminding me I need to have it framed :)
