Back on the first day of the new year, as you do, you make resolutions, goals.......and challenges......and one of the many I made was.......
It's the first day of the new year and, as you do, I'm issuing a challenge, mostly to me, but feel free to join in! I've felt for a long time that I wasn't upholding the spirit of the blog that Evalina kindly set up for us......apart from one small gift that I sent when I joined the group, I've done nothing, so......I'm challenging myself to a monthly "something".......not always stitched (but might be), a drawing (definitely possible) or maybe the odd small parcel of DMC threads to someone who can't buy them as inexpensively as we can here in the US. So, keep an eye out, a small parcel will be flying somewhere from Michigan each month!
......today's is my birthday which seems appropriate but more importantly.......yikes, it's nearly the end of the month so....without more ado here is the first of my monthly somethings and it's in two parts, depending on where you live!
Two giveaways - one for the US and one for the rest of the world!
For the US only
Two copies of Jane Greenoff's magazine from the Cross Stitch Guild, based in the UK. I have had a couple of double mailings in the last couple of years so would like to give two away. The one on the left has a couple of nice Christmas ornaments in as well as a biscornu pattern. The one on the right has a small sewing set of a needlebook, a biscornu and a fob. I don't think Jane is as well known here as in the UK, she is a lovely lady, I have met her a couple of times at Harrogate. The magazine is small, only about 6" x 8", but after reading it, you might decide to join the guild!
For the rest of the world
Twenty skeins of DMC - colours chosen by the winner
Please leave a comment under this post if you'd like to take part, mentioning for which one you are eligible. I'll draw a name on February 5th......another anniversary, lol, the day the WT proposed!
