12-Days of Christmas Giveaway - Day 10

On the 10th day before Christmas ...I was a bit distracted...canceling flights, making new ones, testing a teen for some greek letter - yes just the general chaos that is life these days!  

So in a moment before the next mini-emergency that life throws at us, a lovely giveaway!  A whole bunch of metal threads (faux) from various makers.  Fun to add sparkle to some project you are doing - especially Christmas ornaments.

To get in on the Giveaway - email me at with SPARKLE in the subject line.

12 Days of Christmas Giveaway - Day 9

On the 9th day of Christmas we have two Christmas ornament magazines from Just Cross Stitch.  To get on a chance to have these sent to you - please send an email to with ORNAMENT in the subject line and your address in the message - send by midnight on Dec 23rd to be entered.

Doing this giveaway is a perfect experiment in reading instructions.  I would say 25% of the entries are missing the address!  As stitchers who read my blog tend not to be daily readers of their email and sometimes not even weekly readers of email, I don't chase down winners to get an address as it just isn't practical.  Second most common error is omitting your country if from somewhere other than the US.  :-)  But I do enjoy the 'hellos' that are in those emails as that is the most likely content.  :-)
