Another Give Away!

~~~~ This Give Away is now Closed ~~~~

I went shopping yesterday. I got the things I wanted to give away. So, shall we delve into what you could win?

9 Sekas & Co monthly patterns
with 5 Honey Bee Creations charms

Lizzie Kate's Spring Button Up,
2 flower charms,
32 ct Jobelan Twilight Blue evenweave,
16 skeins of Sullivan's and 1 DMC,
and 5 pieces of 32 ct fabric!
There is one more item to be included -- a $25 Visa card. 

Let me tell you more about these items - The Seka's and Co patterns are from their monthly series. These patterns call for 10 ct Zweigart fabric making each project between 4.5 to 5" (11.4-12.7cm). They are a cross between cross stitch and needlepoint. Also included are 5 Honey Bee Creations buttons for these patterns. You'll be learning new stitches!

The Lizzie Kate pattern, charms, Twilight blue Jobelan, and floss are all kitted up and ready to stitch.  The other 5 pieces of 32 ct linen are from one of those fabric remnant packs I can get at my LNS. Their sizes range from 9"(22.9cm) sq to 6"(15.2cm) sq. Perfect for ornaments and small projects!

And then the Visa - I wanted to go with an "open-ended" one. This way if you want to spend it at your LNS or ONS - yippee! more stash. But, if you feel like using it for gas, groceries, or a haircut - you are ready to go also.

Now for the small print. Simple and easy rules.
~~ Be a follower. I will ship internationally. (My last give away went to Australia and Canada)
~~ Leave a comment on this post only.
~~ If you would like your name entered twice - answer this question - Who is your favorite designer and why?
~~ I will pick a winner on my sister's birthday - Feb 6th!

In case you are wondering - what else did I pick up while shopping? I got LHN's Joy and several pieces of linen for projects. Then because I felt like it 2 large pieces for my stash. That way I can whack whatever size I need for a future project.

Okay - start posting - you have just over two weeks!
Good luck - Denise

Fun giveaway! The card could come in very handy with the Nashville Market just around the corner and those patterns, threads and fabrics are awesome!
I can't tell you my favorite designer because I hate picking favorites - I like too many!

Simona said...

What a nice giveaway!!! Wish to win, my birthday is 2 february :)

kmaurer said...

Thanks for offering such a generous giveaway!

I'm not sure I can pin down a favorite designer. I certainly enjoy Lizzie Kate designs; I've always enjoyed stitching words. I also really enjoy stitching nativities, so any designer with a nativity becomes my favorite for at least a little while!

I hope you are having a wonderful day!

Cindi Loo Who said...

Crystal said...

WOW another wonderful giveaway, I would love a chance to enter your draw. My favorite designer would be, I have way to many would be here for hours but if I had to pick I love LK and LHN. Sounds like you had fun shopping, have a great day.

Jan said...

Certainly a wonderful giveaway, Denise! I have been remiss of late, have missed seeing a couple of your posts. Just got through reading and seeing that your hubby stitches, how great is that? My grown son does too and he always goes from the really detailed projects that take forever, but they are really beautiful!!

Going to stick my neck out and say Tree of Life Samplings is my favorite, just kidding, really!! I don't have a big head...I would have to say with what I have been stitching the last year or so, I have done a lot of La-D-Da designs, so she is a definite favorite!

Sharlotte said...

Oh Denise! Please include me in on this!!! How teriffic ,and GENOROUS!!

I love many designers but I think my absolute favorite is Little House Needleworks. So many of Diane's designs can fit just about any decor . They are simple in design and yet so appealing at the same time. I think they're great!

Thanks for this opportunity!

natalyK said...

Paula said...

Two weeks?
Two weeks?
I have to wait two weeks?

Whoops . . .that's the same amount of time you have been waiting for your Birthday Presents from me . . which went in the mail today.

As soon as I tell you who my favorite designer is, and why (It happens to be Gordon Fraser . . is that the spelling? . . . I have NEVER done any of his patterns but, ever since I worked at the Glass Needle, his Geese with Christmas Wreaths around their necks, have made me smile.) I am going to my blog and add you to my give~away list.

w*h*o*o*p*i*e . . . . Denise is having a Give ~ Away.

Jules said...

Favorite designer? GG! That's a hard one...I don't really have a particular one but I will say that my favorite designs are the older L&L ladies and angels. I wish she still produced more designs like that. The flowing gowns are so gorgeous.

Thanks so much Denise!

jayne@~an eye for threads~ said...

not only do I follow but I also feel as though we have known each other forever. Wow, what a give away girl.... Here's my sign......
I have a difficulty picking only one designer so for those with a love for blended threads yahooo for Teresa Wentzler.... Her designs are absolutely phenomenal and for the love of a quick stitch, I go with Alessandra Adelaide. I think I have a new one which I like a lot also, being Nicole Dostal from Northern Expressions Needlework.
Cheers to being on the needle my friend.....from one addict to another,
As always

Faye said...

This is a totally awesome giveaway!! I would so use that visa card to support a cross stitch buy!! Now, of course I am a follower, and I have a couple favorites designers... I really have about two dozen favorite designers... But I really do love Blackbird Designs for some of my larger projects...And I like BC and LK for my quicker pieces... I really love so so many designers though....Guess thats why that fabric, floss, chart and card would be such a fantastic win~~ Thanks again for the chance!! Faye

Lelia said...

I'm already a follower. Wonderful giveaway : ) I don't+ enjoy stitching on projects when "in the mood"

Enjoy the day - stitch well

Shirley said...

I would love to enter your awesome giveaway. My favourite designer is tricky because I love so many but I have worked several John Clayton for Heritage designs so that would probably be my first choice in a very long list.

I am currently having two giveaways on my blog (including one for dogs) if anyone would lke to hop on over.

kind regards,

Kristy said...

I would love to be entered into this giveaway.

I think my favorite designer would have to be Ink Circles..simply because I love anything Celtic and have done a few of her projects and really enjoyed them.

Carol said...

Oh, I almost missed the deadline, Denise! Thank you so much for offering this very generous giveaway.

I would have to say that through the years Prairie Schooler designs have been my favorites. I just find the color palette that she uses to be so soothing to stitch with. And, for me, stitching is one of the ways I relax :)

Lee said...

How did I miss this? I'd love a chance to win. Thanks Denise!

Sherry said...

I would love to be entered in your fantastic giveaway. I am a follower of you blog and it is always fun to see what your are stitching. I think that right now my favorite designer is Blackbird designs. I have always liked Lizzie Kate too. I think my favorite changes when I see something new I want to stitch.

Natasha said...

Wow thats a pretty awesome giveaway! I would love to enter. Okay so who is my FAVORITE designer,such a hard choice. But I think I would have to say Prairie Schooler. there design, most of them are smallish but pack alot into the design area. So for those times I need to work on something small I still get alot of enjoyment from the detail of their designs.
Thank you and good luck to who ever wins *me* LOL

requilt said...
