Week two grab bag

 Give Away details


We are having two give aways for our followers.  One is a basket of patriotic items in honor of "Independence Day" for our US mainland followers.  The other give away will be for our followers outside the US mainland who will win a PDF pattern of their choice from our talented friend Ezster of Sub Rosa. 


Here is our basket filled with goodies that will be mailed to our US mainland followers

Here is a beautiful example of a Sub Rosa design but there are so many more PDF patterns to pick from for our followers outside the US mainland.  There are many to choose from at her Etsy shop.

In our short time of blogging, we have met so many kind and helpful fellow stitchers and we wanted to show our appreciation to all of you.

To enter our give away all that is required is to be a side bar follower and to leave a comment that you want to be entered.  If you are a follower from outside the US mainland, please let us know so we put you in the correct drawing.  We do not want to announce email addresses so if you follow by email only please add your name to the sidebar so you will be included in all of our drawings.  

We have put together a pretty basket with a charming pouch pattern called "Liberty House"  from Homespun Elegance.  We've included a nice assortment of Moda fabricspatriotic charms and antique buttons.  We think you will love the paperweight to use with any stitch you wish.  We have also included an adorable ceramic bird because of our love for birds. They look great in cross stitch displays too!

An American flag completes our patriotic give away.  Red, white and blue were chosen as the colors to represent valor, liberty and  justice.

We have included photos of the basket give away and just a few of Sub Rosa's lovely PDF patterns below.  Now how can you resist signing up to win one of these?

The cute basket of goodies for our US mainland give away




Included in this pretty basket are Moda fabrics, a brand new Homespun Elegance pattern, a pretty glass paperweight,the linen which is needed for the bag, a flag, a ceramic bird, antique buttons and charms.

                                     
Below you will see just a few of the many Sub Rosa PDF patterns to choose from for our followers outside the US mainland.  If you are from somewhere outside the US mainland please let us know so we can put you in the correct drawing.   You can see all of the patterns at Ezster's Etsy shop which you can find here

A lovely bird that would look wonderful in your home anytime of the year

Here's a great selection for the fall season.
This is a gorgeous choice for the winter (a personal favorite!)

 Our bee stitch lovers will enjoy this pattern

All needleworkers will enjoy this one!

You will have a whole month to sign up as a sidebar follower on the right. We will be picking the two lucky winners on Grab Bag week in July which is our second post of the month. Good luck!
                                               
We hope you have a fun week and lots of time for stitching. Next week we will be showing our old stitches made new.
                                                                       Mary and RJ
