Yesterday was my 5 year anniversary of this little ole’ blog of mine! Wow, how time does fly! I can’t believe it has been 5 years. And I have had so much fun and have met so many wonderful people and have been introduced to so many awesome blogs. So thank you for visiting me over the years and if you are new to my blog, welcome. I hope to spend many more with you.
So to celebrate, I have a couple of give-aways! Yay!!! The first is a cross stitch give-away. Cross stitch is my passion. And my favorite thing to stitch is mermaids 🙂 So, I have a mermaid pattern from Nora Corbett. And you can’t have a pattern without a hand dyed piece of fabric. And I have a beautiful piece from my favorite dyer from Fantasy Dyed Fabrics. It is a piece of 28ct Monaco and is plenty big for just about anything, sized at 20 x 25.
The second giveaway is a knitting project. A scrumptious ball of sock yarn called Poems Sock yarn by Wisdom Yarns and a pattern for a Trellis Garter Lace Scarf.
All you have to do to be entered for the giveaway is leave me a comment telling me what is your most favorite or treasured craft project that you have made, and which giveaway you would choose; either the cross stitch or knitting. I’m not sure I can pick a favorite, but if I had to choose one, it would be definitely be a mermaid 😉 I am just not sure which one at the moment. I will draw 2 names on March 31, 2017.
I do have some updates on my current WIP pieces, but I will post about them tomorrow 🙂 Until then, happy creating and Enjoy Every Stitch ❤
Today is my 3 year anniversary since starting my stitchy blog. It has been a fun ride and I have met so many wonderful people. I started this blog as a way to keep track of my projects and share my passion for stitching. So, to celebrate my anniversary, I have a nice little giveaway that you can win. Simply leave me a comment on this post telling me which of my blog posts is your favorite or which one of my projects is your favorite. I will draw one name to win the following prize:
The prize package includes a piece of 32ct Lugana Solo from Silkweaver measuring 16 x 25 ( a definite mistake in ordering as I don’t stitch on 32ct, but the fabric is beautiful!), The February 2015 issue of Just Cross Stitch Magazine (I renewed my subscription and received this one after I had purchased it) My favorite model stitcher stitched the cover 😉 A package of DMC Color Variations-the Blue Lagoon Collection. I liked the colors so much I purchased it twice; a couple of Weeks Dye Works threads and 3 packages of Mill Hill beads.
So leave me a comment on this post by March 31, 2015 and I will draw a name from all entries on April 1 and it won’t be a joke 🙂
Today is the day for the drawings for my blogaversary. I had my son do the drawing for me and I thought we may run into a problem if he picked 2 people that wanted the same prize, but the first 3 names all wanted a different prize. So here we go…
First prize of the yarn package goes to:
Second prize for the Lizzie Kate pagckage goes to:
And the third prize for the #2 cross stitch package goes to:

After I posted yesterday, I looked at my archives and realized that a year ago I started my little ole’ stitchy blog. I checked to see when my very first post was and it was yesterday! One year ago I started this blog and I have enjoyed every minute of it. So to celebrate, on short notice, I have 3 little give-aways. All you have to do is leave me a comment about anything and let me know which give-away you would like to win by the end of day March 31, 2013. I will pick 3 winners on Monday, April 1, 2013. So here is what I could find in my search today:
#1 is a Lizzie Kate Friendship pattern, A piece of Plum Blossom 28 ct Linen sized 14 x 18, a Piece of 28 ct hand painted Monaco from Youthful Needleworks, some thread and some Mill Hill Beads.
#2 contains Friendship pattern with a clay sculpture of a dragon and 2 little kids, a piece of Pewter 20ct Lugana sized at 12 1/2 x 12 1/2, some threads and some Mill Hill beads.
