Another Giveaway!! Yikes

before i get to the giveaway i wanted to share with you my finished little pattern booklet. this was taught by Vickie Lo Piccolo Jennett at Attic Needlework Sampler Symposium in January.
this is it in pieces but stitching completed. I did change the stitching added my initials and a few other motifs.
Ta-Da finished i love it the little patterns that open up as you untie the ribbon. it always feels great to finish a project. one down and umm hundreds to go
Now for my giveaway. i have been trying to create room in my craft room and in order to do this i need, i must get rid of patterns, material and many other items. i figure at 59 i will be lucky to finish even half of what i own. so it is time to share. all i ask of you is that you leave a comment and you must be a follower and if you find someone new to follow my blog you get a second entry.

this is the first batch of giveaways 3 different kinds of silk, red,white and brown all beautiful and enough to finish a stitched project or two. plus a Presentation Display book which my sister in England sent me many of these and i want to share them. it has 20 pages of protective sleeves to insert anything you wish. i was thinking of putting together a booklet of various stitches and ideas. also there is a Charles Craft Home Deco pillow sham 100% cotton and room to stitch on the front any design you like on 14 count. will fit a pillow of 16 by 16inches.
here is a beautiful little booklet ( that i found i have two of) of Schwenkfleder 2008 Days of Remembrance. it has tons of pictures of their needlework collection and it was put together by my friends Becky deVries-Wong and Julie Buck of
"In the Company of Friends"
and to follow are many charts stay tuned the list goes on.


  1. Your pattern book is really lovely. You have done a wonderful job. I know what you mean about getting to a certain age and realising that we have to many things to do. Would love to win the book. I'm a follower.

  2. Please enter me in your giveaway. The new finish is nice. I love red work.

  3. Your pattern book is beautiful. SO Pretty! I love the idea of stitching the covers and inserting the foldout charts. Those would make great gifts! Now you've inspired me. The Schwenkfleder calendar would be a great read and study. I would love to be entered for the 2008 calendar. Very generous of you. love Annette
