Time For Another Giveaway

I've been going through my stash, weeding out charts I have already stitched and will not stitch again and charts I have been given that I will never stitch.  I am married to a hoarder and I tend to go to the other extreme myself just to create some balance in my household.

To celebrate the relatively cool temperatures of low 70s to high 60s of the past few days, this month's theme is Autumn, Halloween and Thanksgiving.  One lucky winner will get the following seven charts.

Prairie Schooler's Harvest Time: three charts, the first a harvest scene, the second and third Halloween and Thanksgiving pieces.  Heart Strings' The Bittersweet Season: a band sampler of a black cat atop a very tall pumpkin.



The Trilogy's Autumn Spots and Heart in Hand's Halloween Tall Bird: both small quick and easy little projects.


Hillside Samplings' A Is For Acorn, a pretty sampler with a charming acorn border.    Lavender Wings' Pumpkin Patch.


The Cricket Collection's Thanksgiving Circle, meant to be stitched as a wreath but I stitched the individual elements as ornaments.  I happened to save my working copies and have included them as well.

The usual procedure should be followed,  Leave a note in the comments explaining why you would enjoy stitching these charts.  If clicking on your user name will not bring me to a profile that includes your e-mail address, please include it in your comment.  You cannot win if I cannot contact you.

What lovely fall charts. My plan, since being retired, is to finish the three larger gifts I'm working on that are in various stages of progress, then start making seasonal smalls for myself. Even though I've been stitching for many years, you'd really never know that by what has stayed in my own home! These designs would be a great start.

Thanks for sharing, Regina, whoever wins! (I hit publish too soon before ;))

I used to ignore halloween and fall projects, but now have really come to appreciate the warmth of the colors and the sentiment behind the designs. Funny how our tastes change over time! I would love to have these charts - thank you for the generous giveaway!

I think de-stashing/ thinning the herd is great! I myself grew up with hoarders, and have winnowed my own stash by sharing with friends or charity thrift donations several times, even though my stitching history is pretty short (since 2008). It's just a good feeling, and keeps you feeling limber.

I'm especially looking forward to some of the motifs from the Prarie Schooler book--I saw someone stitch the turkey and it was gorgeous. I think I may have either the trilogy or the HiH chart, so you should not pick me if you have a problem with me passing one of those on very quickly.

I have mixed feelings about this autumn weather--of course great to escape that early September heat wave, but...

Fall will also be a great season, especially if we can keep up with the rain we need!

Almost forgot, my email address is azxser@aol.com. I checked my profile and am not sure if my email will work from there.

I forgot part of my comments (that's what happens when you have a 3-yeqr-old granddaughter running around!). I love the fall designs, and today is also my birthday, so this would be a lovely surprise. Thank you again!

Autumn is my favorite time of the year! As a new stitcher, I would love to stitch all of these, they don't look too hard, and I sure would get plenty of practice. Thanks for the give-away!

What a nice, eclectic group of charts! I would love to be included in your generous drawing. I just finished a Prairie Schooler ornament two days ago and forgot how much I love this designer. I have a weakness for autumn patterns due to the gorgeous colors of the season. I've never seen the Hillside Samplings design - just gorgeous. Thanks for the chance.

Such a generous giveaway! I absolutely love everything Fall and Halloween. I used to have the Lavender Wings design, but it was lost in a move. I would love to stitch it up. Several of the other charts are ones I had on a wish list for some time. Awesome! Thank you for the chance.

I have hardly any Fall and Halloween charts! I would love to be able to make some to decorate with and give as gifts. I have only recently discovered Prairie Schooler patterns and now they are retiring. I am trying to make some of them now. Thanks for having this giveaway.

Laura said...

What a generous giveaway - thank you for sharing with others! I love this selection as it really allows one to celebrate throughout the entire Fall/harvest/Halloween & Thanksgiving season - they can be grouped together or separately and really compliment each other.

Wow, what a generous giveaway :o) You have some gorgeous design in your giveaway.
I would love to be entered into your giveaway - while we down here in Aussie land are just coming out of winter into spring I still feel the need to stitch the autumn colours! And I have never stitched a Prairie Schooler design :o)
Whoever wins will be one lucky stitcher!
