Hi, Stitching Friends!
I am finally announcing my first giveaway. I am celebrating several things: this little blog now has over 60 followers; I am another year older; temperatures in the upper 90's are leaving tomorrow; and life is good!
A month or so ago I wanted to have a giveaway with strawberries as the theme. Don't you love strawberries...stitched and otherwise?
Then a more important theme attracted my attention. This giveaway will include four patterns from Widgets and Wool. I know many of you are familiar with this company because I have seen some of your stitched projects on your blogs. The company is comprised of a grandmother, a mother, and a granddaughter. What a wonderful, family oriented way to share a common interest. I want to give this family some extra recognition and some extra TLC during a difficult time.
The four patterns that I chose will reflect the seasons of the year...and of life. The designs are fairly quick stitches, most of which can be made into little pillows if you chose. I think we all like to pick up some quick projects as a break from the larger designs that we tackle. I will throw in some fun extra surprises, too.
To enter the giveaway, you must be a follower of this blog and of my BlackBird Designs blog, which you can find here: http://obbdg.blogspot.com . Also, you must post a comment on this post on this blog only. Deadline for commenting is noon EDT USA on Sunday, July 15, 2012.
I will choose the winner of this giveaway on Sunday, July 15th. Some friends will be coming over for stitching that day...an early get together for IHSW (see button at top of blog), since most of us are busy the weekend of the 20th - 22nd.
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone. Stay cool and keep stitching! And thank you for visiting my modest, sometimes neglected blogs!
