Well this is my first giveaway. I have seen (and was fortunate enough to even win one) on so many other blogs that I thought I would do one of my own.
This is an unused, unopened Mirabilia pattern I bought as a group off ebay a few years back. It's called "Queen of Peace". I doubt I will ever get around to stitching it so figured I'd give it away. Also included are a few colours of satin DMC thread. I tried stitching with one other colour of this type and I really disliked the thread... I know a few of you out there really like this (and others want to try it) so I hope they can find a home where they will appreciated. Here's the picture:

So here's how the giveaway will work. Please leave a comment on this post that you want to be entered. Make sure your email is in your profile and visible or leave it in your comment below. If you link to this post on your blog (and email me your blog location to: m ladner, without the spaces) then I will add you again! (also this lets me make sure I have everyone's blogs to read in my reading list.) :)

The draw will be held on Tuesday, May 5th, I'll get my B/F to randomly draw out of a hat from all the names.

Coming up tomorrow: Better pictures of my Disney UFO and my plan for it

Hi Mel,

I already have that pattern so please don't add me to the contest. :-)

I just found your blog from Ruth's (Stitching Badger) so I'm going to take a moment and catch up on your posts.

I'm primarily a needlepoint but I also cross stitch (among other things) and enjoy reading the cross stitch blogs. :-)
