I am excited to host my first giveaway! This is not in honor of any milestone, but because it drives me crazy that I have l20 followers and get an average of 8 comments! Not to belittle those people who always comment...I love you and am so happy to get your comments! I'm just hoping to generate some new followers and new commenters (is that a word?) and make some new friends! The rules are as follows: Leave me a comment on THIS post telling me what you enjoy about my humble little blog, for one entry. Post this giveaway on your blog for another entry(and make sure you let me know). I will choose the winner on August 30. I won't use any fancy number generator, because I don't know how :), will just put everyone's name on a piece of paper in a box and draw one.
Here's what I'm offering. The winner has her choice of two samplers. The first is Houses of Hawk Run Hollow by Carriage House Samplers. It is stitched on either a 34 or 35 ct, and measures 19 3/4 x 15. I have stitched MD Cole in the year 2010 in the first block, but you could very easily pick that out and add the name and year of your choosing.
The second choice is Sarah Moon 1791, an Ackworth School reproduction sampler. I believe it is on 32 count, and I have aged it with walnut dye. It measures 17 3/4 x 15.
Both samplers are unframed for ease in mailing. They are also both stitched on linen with DMC floss.
Hope you like them, and looking forward to hearing from you!!!!!!!
