GIVEAWAY - 151 followers!

Wow, you have all blown me away, I am now at 151 followers!
Thank you all soooo much for following my blog, caring about what I have to say and share about stitching and life.

As promised I have a giveaway to do. There are two different packages again (cause I hate just picking one person).

Giveaway #1
It's Christmas in July, as traditionally celebrated by the stitching community. For this one I have a Mill Hill Snowman bead design. Unopened and with all the supplies you need to make it!
The other item is snowman earrings with Swarovski Crystals. You have to make them but everything you need to do it is in the package. Here is a pic:
(excuse my carpet in the background I didn't think to grab a blanket instead to grab the shots on)

Giveaway #2
For some reason I have three or four variations on the Footprints in the Sand poem. This one here, in the giveaway, was in one of the many boxes that I inherited from either my Mom or a friend's Mom who no longer stitch.
It's gently used, there are some creases and wear and tear, but the pattern is still completely legible. I know I won't stitch all of the variations I have, so figured this one could have a new home! This package comes with #24 needles as well.

And of course all packages come with other little treats in them once I figure out what those are. :)


How to enter:
It's easy, you have to:
A) be a follower
B) leave a comment on this post that you wish to be included (let me know if you prefer Giveaway 1 or 2 or both, I know not everyone always wants to be included in each one)
C) for a bonus entry post the giveaway link on your blog and you will be entered again

The only other thing to be sure of in entering is that you have your email in your Profile, or include it in the comment. If I don't have your email I can't send you a notification that you won to get your address.

Entries will be open until Tuesday, July 27. I will post a winner on July 28. (winners will be chosen either by random number generator or names into a hat).

It's Christmas, but I will probably not stitch anything Christmasy this July. Still working on the tiny dragon. Now if you ever decide to give away any of those pirate by Sue Hillis I'll have to create a dozen blogger accounts to stack the deck. LOL
