I have been waiting for a long time for the follower count to hit 200 and within the last couple weeks it has finally reached that goal. Not that I don't want more of course, but I promised myself a celebration when the count got that high. So...to celebrate, let's have a drawing!
The drawing will be for a few needlework related goodies that seem to be multiplying like wildfire in my personal stash. If you know me, this is a real sacrifice since I don't often give from my "personal stash." I have way too much trouble making a decision about what to give away. My friends say I easily have enough stash to open a shop. :) Even though I know I will never stitch all that I have in my stash, I love to go through everything and dream about what I want to stitch next. It's hard for me to let go of those dreams. So, I hope you like what I have chosen to send on to some lucky stitcher out there in blog land.
To enter, just post a comment here and tell me what you do with stash that you love, but know you will never get to in this lifetime. Some of you may keep everything, others may give it away. If you do the latter, how do you decide to give up on the dream of stitching that design? What do you tell yourself when you decide to keep the pattern instead of giving it away? (If you are anything like me you might say to yourself "Oh, I think I will put that design to the front of the to do pile". :) As I hear from you, I will put your name in the drawing which will be held on Monday October 22nd in honor of a dear friend's birthday. The odds of winning are only 1 in 200, so what have you got to lose?
I have included a few patterns from some of my favorite designers, gift cards, a needle threader, a cute gold bookmark with sewing items attached, sampler cards, a small alphabet notebook, a Mary Englebreit Sewing Kit and finally a Ginger Snip of which I have two more in my stash. I just love these little snippers and I can hang it around my neck on a satin cord for easy use.
Looking forward to hearing your stories about your stash.
Until Next Time
Keep Your Needle Busy,
