A Little Finish and a Giveaway

Two posts back I mentioned I wanted to start a bunch of small stuff. Here's one for ya. I received this from Ranae from Stitch to Stitch when I won a name-that-designer contest she put on.



This is from LizzieKate. It called for 32ct linen but I used 28ct which is why the design almost runs out of room on the sides. But there's a method to my madness-I'm taking the fabric there and making a little table mat. The top 4 fabrics I like for this but the bottom plaid I'm not so sure of. What do you all think?

Okay, so lets get on with the Giveaways!

There will be 2 Giveaways, a 4th of July one because of my missed celebration of 100 posts, and an Autumn/Halloween one. The Independence Day package consists of a cross stitch kit of red, white, and blue goodness with all sorts of goodies with it.

The A/H one is a little different. You choose which one you'd like to win, the Autumn one or Halloween. I'm stitching two items now for both choices. I know that some of you aren't as Halloween-crazed as I am so that's why you'll have a choice. Once a winner is chosen, I'll have a stitched item plus goodies that go along with what they chose, scary stuff or Fall-ish stuff. And since one person will win, the other stitched piece with goodies left over will go to a person whose name I'll draw. So it's like 3 giveaways!

Leave your comment here on this post with your favorite color, the initial of your first or last name (for those of you who go by the name of your blog, just give me an initial you like), and which of Autumn or Halloween you'd like a chance at.

You have 'til September 27th midnight to comment and I'll pick names the next day. If you're only interested in one of the giveaways, let it be known in your comment. But I'll assume you're interested in both of them. I'll need a little extra time to order some of the things and hoping the ONS has it all in stock!

Whew! I hope you can understand all that because I'm not sure I do! I didn't want to turn this into a lot of mumbo jumbo.

Back to stitching! Oh, and this giveaway is open to follower or not, near or far, to everybody. Good Luck!

  2. Congrats on the cute finish Shelly. I like the top fabric but it might be to busy. I would go with the green - the 4th one down.

  5. I love the fabrics but have to admit I'm not too sure about the bottom one. Perhaps see how it looks when you have them all laid out. The top one is gorgeous, I love the pumpkins. I look forward to seeing it made up.

    I would love to be entered into the draws please. Halloween/autumn? You choose, as I love them both (assuming I win of course...lol) and my initial is S.

  12. Lovely LK finish and gorgeous fabric. I would probably choose the green but I think the plaid is pretty fabulous if you tie it in with a great trim.
    I would love to be entered into the giveaway. I love autumn, but Halloween too, or the 4th of July :) y initial is C :)
    Congratulations on your blogging and beautiful stitching.
    Have a great week!

  13. Your finish is very cute, Shelly! Since that piece has a lot going on it, I would tend to go with a simpler fabric like the dark green to finish it off. I know you'll do a great job :)

    I'd love to enter both giveaways! I do love the 4th of July so if we have to pick one, that would be it. I love blue, my initial is "C" and I'm keeping my fingers crossed :)

    Thanks for the chance!

  14. Hmm, I love all of the fabrics. Could you do a quilted like one? Maybe put the plaid one or two fabrics away from the design since it has a lot of the colours the design has. Love your giveaway idea. I would have to go with the Autumn themed one. Initials are AD :D

    1. Anne, that's exactly what I plan to do. It's just that the bottom plaid fabric, I'm not sure of. I may do this with the 4 top colors.

  15. I like all of those fabrics with your stitching, including the plaid. I agree with Anne--use several!!
    I would love to be entered in your giveaway for Autumn! I like the color red and my initial is F. It would be fun to be a winner! Thank you for the opportunity!
    Congrats on the 100 posts!!
