Trumpet fanfare announcing - A giveaway!


I'd like to celebrate being able to create again with you, lovely readers,
so I've made up a pack of stitching goodies, containing a selection of Anchor stranded cottons and a piece of 100% linen fabric;

a brand new copy of this embroidery book;
and some mystery items!

To win a pre-Christmas pressie for yourself, or maybe to pass the gift on to encourage a new stitcher, ('cos you know we love to do that here), just leave a comment on this post, telling me why!

I will draw the winning name on 30th November.

  1. Hello. I think your pressies are very generous and lovely. I have already bought the book and it is fantastic so the person who wins it will be very fortunate.

    I also love your Pink, Green, and Purple, crochet blanket. Love it. Could you refer me to where you bought the pattern. I am new at crochet but I think I could make this one. Also thanks for referring everyone who reads your blog to Crocheting Saved My Life.
    Hugs Judy

    1. Thanks Judy, It's just a big granny square with a shell edging, but I can write it up for you in US terms when I have time. It's lovely to do -very easy!

  2. Best of luck with the giveaway! I also have this book, and it's filled with lots of wonderful ideas. It would be great for anyone interested in raised embroidery.

  3. What a generous giveaway! The book looks inspiring and who couldn't uses more needles and thread? It would be hard for me to pass this on, so maybe I can encourage others through the projects I could create with this giveaway! (Does that make me sound shallow? or greedy?)

    1. And, if Nicola wins, send me the book!!! I have more threads etc than I could ever use, but I do like this book, (which I borrow from the library every so often...)

  5. I would LOVE to learn 3D embroidery - I'm always so impressed by what I see on everyone else's blogs but I haven't tried anything like that :)

  6. I am new to embroidery and am struggling to learn new stitches. I'd love to learn 3D style too. I will be a Grandma for the first time in less than a month and would love to learn new stitches to make items for the new little one in our lives.

  9. I agree that your giveaway is very generous. Your wish to help other stitchers shows your generous nature. I used to share my knowledge with a group of friends before I moved here, and I dont have any funny stories, but we did laugh a lot, and learned a lot from each other.

  11. Your giveaway does look very generous, and the book looks very interesting, I'm trying to fit in time to try out new stitches, but haven't managed it much so far! I love looking at what the different stitches have been used for too, I mainly just stick to cross stitch...
