Enter and "WIN"

part two of the "Spring Give Away"

i love magazines and my hubby and i subscribe to over 10. you would think i would remember that they will arrive in the mail but when i see them on the newsstand sometimes i can't help it and i have in the past bought them so needless to say i have a few doubles of some what i consider great magazines.
Included in this giveaway are  "6" "Fine Lines" Needlework magazine. for those of you who don't know this was a great magazine for many years and suddenly just went out of business. No notice, no sorry just gone.
i have Volume 2 Number 1997, Volume 2 number4 1998, Volume 4 number 4 2000, this one has a nice sampler designed by Kandace Thomas called "Bluebird Sampler" also a great article on Welsh Samplers by Mary Jenkins,Volume 6 Number1 2001, Volumn7 Number2 2002 and last Volume 6 number4 2002. i hope one or more of these might complete your collection of this magazine.
to add to the fun-
i have "2"  Nancy Sturgeon "Threads Through Time" charts. i love stitching these on silk gauze, they look wonderful on any count. each one has the threads you will need and one even has the silk gauze. wonderful miniature sampler charts with house,trees and alphabets, a pleasure to stitch.

1 chart by "Margaret & Margaret inc. "Mary Virginia Lafon" Sampler circa 1821

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.
