A Giveaway


Okay, I've decided to have a giveaway. I've never done this before, but now that I've finally stitched this beauty (previous post), I've decided that I would give away The City Stitcher's Adam and Eve chart. I figured that after 20+ years in my stash pile and now finally finishing it, that this chart deserves a new home. I received comments and emails about it, and yes, I could put this on the Bay of Evil as it is out-of-print and it might command some ridiculous price, but I'd rather have some fun with it and send it to a blogging home (plus, hanging my head here, I ordered a couple more charts and I really must make room - LOL).

The rules are really simple. Post a comment on my blog that you would like a chance to win this chart. If you don't have a blog of your own, make sure that you leave your email address so I can contact you. If you post a link on your blog referring to this giveaway, I will give you another two (2) chances to win. I'll pick the winner one week from today (Monday, June 22nd).

This was a fun stitch and I hope that whoever wins this chart will show me pictures of their progress. Good Luck!!!

Oh, by the way, the thingys I forgot to put in have been added , but discovered I also left out the snake's eye! Both have been fixed and it's off to the framer's this week!!

Well, I am not entering the draw, but still, I would like to say how generous of you, and you'll make somebody happy - I was in a position to do this recently with a French OOP chart and I am glad I beat ebay : enthusiasm and smiles are much better than euros (or dollars).

Deb - I have been admiring your A&E posts and er yep - coveting that chart! Please enter me in your very generous drawing for it. I'll try to do a link but I have not been spending much time in blog land lately so I can't promise that. Can't wait to see your beauty framed! Melody PS - thanks for your supportive words on my blog :) - it's great to know there are friends who care.

Berit said...

How fun is that! Someone's going to be really excited to get this OOP chart! I'll sit this one out, however, as I feel that I've already got enough stash! (Can you ever have enough, lol?

The Scarlett House said...

Great finish, Deb. It is one of my favorite samplers. Nope, I don't need to be entered either, lol.

Sandra said...

Your A&E is stunning and beautifully stitched.
Do not enter me for your generous give away as I seem to have stash & patterns to last me for another 50 years.

Andrea said...

Oh, how I'd love to win this one as I've been lusting after it for a while now, years to be exact.
You're so very kind to give it away instead of selling it!
I'll be sitting here in Texas with my fingers and toes crossed! But even if I don't win, I'm so happy to have found you and your blog :-)
