Craft room giveaway 2 winners!

Today I drew the names of the winners of the craftroom giveaway – it was pretty easy as I had 5 lots and only 3 entrants!!!! Clearly I have not developed a cross stitch following, but that is great news for my winners, they *might* get part of the other two lots. 🙂

So congrats to littleblackdogsa, saracrafts, and jenniesisler. Wish I could link to your blogs, but still having issues with many of my screens.

I’ll send off packages as soon as you send me your mailing addresses!

Last day to enter!

Today is the last day to enter the craft room giveaway part 2 – don’t procrastinate now, I’ll be drawing the winners tomorrow. You can see the prizes and learn more about how to enter here.

Good luck!

Craft room Giveaway – Part 2

This morning I sorted through a magazine box full of patterns of all sorts.

I rediscovered my extensive collection of cross stitch pattern booklets. I seem to have a huge collection of Paula Vaughn designs, with a few others mixed in. Clearly I had more discretionary income in the 90’s and thought I would have lots of time and wall space in my future. 🙂

Well, I went through them trying to be realistic about what I really will stitch, or what I could foresee myself stitching as gifts. After I set those aside, I had a large pile – too good to toss, too many to keep. That means – another giveaway!

I sorted them into different lots, each with some variety, but none so big as to be completely overwhelming. there are five lots, pictured here. These are good quality printed pattern booklets, not copies. Here is a sample of what the charts look like:

Here’s how I will work it – comment here and I will put your name into a drawing for each lot. Want more chances? Share this post, and link back so I know you did it, I’ll give you five more chances – all on one lot or one in each, however you decide to split them up. I’ll ship anywhere, so no need to worry about that – if you get mail, I will get these to you.

All entries must be submitted by midnight Thursday night, August 28. I’ll draw the winners Friday morning.

Good luck!


There were nine of you lovely followers who entered the Christmas Fabric Giveaway, and today is the day I drew the winning name.

Actually, today is the day the random number generator gave me a number to line up with a winner.

and so, without further ado, the winner of 6 yards of beautiful Christmas fabric is….


Congratulations to you!

And everyone who entered, thanks so much for trying, and fear not, there will be more given away in a variety of craft categories as I continue sorting and purging craft supplies.

Now, I’m off to pack up the fabric for shipping far far away. Littleblackdogsa, please pop me an email with your mailing information. You can reach me at salpal1 (at) earthlink (dot) net

Have a good weekend, everyone.

Craft room cleanout giveaway!


I know Crimson Crow has been waiting to see this post for a few weeks – and here it is!

When working on the craft room clean out (still in process) we worked on a bin of fabric I had. It had a lot of fabric I love but have to face that I will never use.

It is too good to just heave, so I thought I would offer it up as a giveaway here.

There are about two yards of each of the red, green, and cream (the cream one is a wee bit darker than shows in the photograph, but not much). The print is small but not busy, and obviously, they are all the same print in the different colorways.

It’s all been washed and dried, so should be ready for your sewing or crafting needs.

Want it? Leave a comment by next Thursday night and include your email address (it is OK to spell it out if you want to defeat the web crawlers), and I will draw the winner on Friday. No limit as to where you live, I’ll be glad to ship this fabric to a new home anywhere.

Good luck!

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
