May's Giveaway!!

You guys give Wendy and I so much pleasure, you can't even imagine!! Watching your starts and seeing all of your progress, thrills us beyond words! We are so proud of every one of you!
The best part is you all seem to be enjoying your work...and that's what's most important:)

For May's giveaway, I'd like to change things up a little. I want to give away 50 skeins of DMC regular floss (not the specialty or variegated)....winner's choice of colors! I know some of us don't need or even want more, but some of us could sure use it for future projects.

To win, MEMBERS must leave a comment on this post and you must have posted at least ONE progress picture for the month of April. I know life gets in the way, but we're hoping you have been able to stitch and post at least once.

Good luck!! Winner will be announced May 1st....at some unknown time;)

Membership is full @ 100 again!! We're so excited to have 2 new members:)

(((HUGS)))

Wow, I'm the first to comment (anyway, I was when I started writing this message). Of course I'd like to participate and 50 skeins of DMC floss, that would be great! It would give me a great chance to start 'Impossible love' which is also on my list (and computer). And posting a WIP picture in April won't be a problem: I'm HAED-addicted...

And about the pleasure of the blog: it's the same way here. I check this blog every day and like every message!

Hugs,
Sjoukje

That is another surprise included for this Giveaway! That is a really nice thought from you and Wendy. The DMC floss would be really lovely, especially for those who pays a lot for DMC floss in here in Europe.

Thank you so much!
Yvonne

Lisa said...

Oh my gosh! DMC here in the UK is SO expensive, 50 skeins would help me kit up another of my HAED's I'm desparate to start!

What a great offer of give away! As everyone else has said, that's at the least a significant start on kitting up a pattern... if not completely floss-kitting for some of the smaller/simpler patterns.

Thanks for including me in the give-away possibility!

Sabine S. said...

For the June giveaway, I respectfully request that the prize be a heaping helping of self control and that you rig the giveaway so that I win! With HAED having a sale and the possibility of winning 50 skeins of floss, how can I not cave in and buy a new pattern?

This is a fabulous prize and I thank you so much for your generosity! I love, love, love this blog and everyone on it!
Sabine-please include me

Mich said...

What a lovely give-away again.

When I was in the States, more than 10 years ago, I went into an embroidery shop and just bought skeins and skeins of floss without really knowing what colours I needed, because the price was so much cheaper than in Belgium. The lady at the counter probably thought I would open my own shop ;-))

I bought so many that it lasted many, many years, but now I'm slowly getting through all of them, and I'd sure could use some new once, certainly with the HAED needing so many different colours ;-))

Bellatrix said...

Claire said...

What a wonderful gift to win! Please include my name in the draw - DMC is so expensive in the UK so the 50 skeins would go a long way with helping kit up another HAED start!

Great giveaway! Threads are so expensive here in Finland that I would be over the moon if I win this. :) I'd kit up a new HAED with them. So please put my name in the hat. :)

Caroline said...

You guys are really generous! I will be posting my update photo tomorrow morning. I was hoping to have an even larger blue blob after I spend today stitching on it!

Suzie said...

Cindy & Wendy, I'm commenting here to chime in on how lovely and generous this prize drawing is! What a wonderful idea!!

But please don't include my name in the drawing. Since I won last month, I don't think that is is appropriate for me to be included in this one, and I am quite content with that! lol

Aussie Stitcher said...

WOW, that is so generous. Would love to add to my DMC stash, with all that I plan to do HEHE ;), I will need a truck load!!!! In the process of posting a wip picture as I type, waiting for blogger to load the pictures.
