August Giveaway!!

This month, I'm giving away one of my very favorite tools!! The DMC Needlework Threads Color Card. If you don't have a color or want to change a color, this is a very good tool! It's also great for helping you decide if you want to go up or down a shade.


It does not come with floss samples, like the old cards did. It groups color lines together. All of the colors lines in DMC...satin, pearl, six strand, variegated. I use mine a lot!!
Last month one of our members suggested magazines...so I went to our local book store and got what they had! I wish they carried more;) The Christmas Ornament Preview Issue from Just Cross Stitch (July/August 2009), Stoney Creek Cross Stitch (June 2009) and Cross Stitch Gold (June 2009).

Rules for drawing...same as always 1) must be a member to enter 2) must enter comment on this post only 3) must have posted at least one progress (or finish) pic by 8/31/09. Drawing will be 9/1/09. Good luck and thank you all for being such wonderful members!! We look forward to your posts:)

This is a thing I certainly love to sign up. I always have trouble looking for threads, and I don't have a lot of threads yet, but it will be easy to use to change colors in a certain work.

Anita H said...

Great idea, would certainly come in handy.
