GIVING BACK....TWO GIVEAWAYS!




My Birthday is March 1. I will be 52 years old, and proud of it.(most days!!). I was married in my late 20's and had all 3 of my children in my 30's. Anyway, I would like to have TWO GIVEAWAYS!

1. FOR ALL MY CROSS-STITCH FRIENDS/READERS...I WILL GET TOGETHER AN ENVELOPE OF A FEW CROSS-STITCH RELATED ITEMS. I HAVEN'T GOTTEN IT TOGETHER YET, BUT WHEN I DO I WILL EDIT FOR A PHOTO. **EDITED TO ADD PHOTO...(you will receive: The Drawn Thread "Garden Recipe" bellpull chart....Plum Pudding Needleart "Bits of Blue".....With Thy Needle and Thread "Sarah's Garden" and "Love Letters" (these two are gently used and I LOVED stitching them!!), Elizabeth Designs "Home Sweet Home"...and two older copies of "Sampler & Antique Needlework Quarterly"...these are fantastic magazines...I bought several from a lady that was selling her MIL's stash....and you will get a skein of dinky dyes. I hope you will find something of interest in this package! I may be adding more before it's actually mailed!

2. FOR ALL MY NON-CROSS-STITCH FRIENDS/READERS....I WILL GET TOGETHER AN ENVELOPE WITH NON-STITCH RELATED ITEMS...AGAIN, I DO NOT HAVE THIS TOGETHER YET, BUT WILL POST A PHOTO WHEN I DO. **EDITED...PHOTO HAS BEEN ADDED!** You will receive a "spring" themed envelope...socks, notecards, napkins, a dishcloth my MIL makes and a set of bookmarks......again I will most likely add more to this as I am out shopping!!
Enjoy!!

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO ENTER EITHER GIVEAWAY, PUT YOUR NAME IN THE COMMENT SECTION OF THIS POST, AND I WILL HAVE MY DAUGHTER DRAW TWO NAMES, ONE FOR EACH ENVELOPE, ON MARCH 1. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU LET ME KNOW WHICH ENVELOPE YOU ARE ENTERING FOR!
IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO POST IT ON YOUR BLOG AND A LINK TO THIS BLOG, YOU WILL GET AN EXTRA CHANCE TO ENTER. JUST LET ME KNOW THAT YOU HAVE DONE THIS WHEN YOU POST A COMMENT....GOOD LUCK!!

Have a great day!!
Marion
