HANDS TO WORK GIVEAWAY

Anna Stonebreaker Sampler
by Hands to Work
Since I don't have much to post today I thought I would have another giveaway!!! So, look what I found at one of the LNS in my area. This is a great chart called Anna Stonebreaker by Hands to Work. It is a reproduction and best of all I purchased three of these patterns at just $1.00 each. I couldn't resist, so I bought one for myself and one for a friend and one to giveaway. I also purchased the thread for it and I will include them with the pattern. Everyone loves different counts of linen so I will let you supply that. The rules for this giveaway are to simply leave a comment on this post only and tell me what your favorite linen count to stitch on is. I will be drawing the winner on Friday, August 28th, so you can leave your entries until midnight on Thursday, August 27th.

I have received several comments as to where you can purchase scissors like the ones that appear on both July 27th and August 19th posts. If you go to ebay and do an advanced search on sellers for rosa0537, or she has a store called Mercerie Loisirs Creatifs you may be able to purchase you a pair there.
I am continuing my progress on Sail Away, but haven't made enough progress to post pics quite yet so I will update photos in the next couple of days.

Hi Jolene! You are such a sweetie! I would love to be entered in your drawing. My favorite linen to stitch on is 32 count but I wish I could learn to love 40 count! What a nice thing for you to do to buy 3 so you can share.

Maybe I'll have enough Sail Away progress to post in a couple of days as well.....

Jolene, you are so very kind to enable your stitching friends!! I too would love to be entered into your drawing. I guess my favorite count is 36...although 32 and 40 are OK too!! I've got great lighting and good glasses!! Happy Stitching

Kat said...

What a lovely sampler! I like to use 32 or 36 count linen, thanks for offering this!

Hi Jolene, I looooove this kind of sampler, I started just doing samplers until I found how I enjoyed doing smalls. But reprodutions and samplers are always my favourites.
Just some week I stitched on 36ct in Zweighart linen, thanks to a friend who gave me a little piece to try. Unitl now, I stitch on 32ct but I adore when I see those little, little crosses...... So , enter me for the give away, and maybe this can be my first time like a lucky girl.
I invite you to see my blog and say your opinion in a comment , if you want. Have a nice day.

What a great deal you found! I will pass on the drawing and let someone else win this beauty (I have too many other projects in the works right now.) I tend to gravitate to stitching on 32 ct or 36 ct fabrics...

Ellen said...

Love this sampler and would like a chance to win it. I love to stitch on 32ct linens. Currently I am trying smaller ct 36 and 40.

Hugs,

Peggy Lee said...

What a sweet chart, and lovely thought to purchase three of them. I would be honored to win this one.
I prefer to stitch on 40 count. I guess it's because I want to stitch it while I can still see it. I know there will come a day when I just won't be able to see it anymore! :^)

Oh how beautiful this sampler is! I have yet to do a repro sampler, although I have several on my wish list. :) And although I have been stitching since about 1978, I just this year started on linen and have only worked on 28ct Cashel linen. I have to say I love it, and look forward to trying a higher count once I get more secure with the 28. Thank you so much for the chance at this chart & threads!

I love the sampler! I like 32 count the most. I find it pretty difficult to see the smaller, but I would love to be able to do the tiny stitches again!

I don't have a favorite linen count (yet) I stitch alot with 32 and am trying 36 now. I'll even go higher or lower depending on the pattern.

Thanks for including me in your drawing

I really like reproduction samplers and this is a nice one. How lucky you were to find them for $1.00. Please include me in your giveaway.

I prefer 32ct fabric.

You're so generous! Thanks for the giveaway! I love working on 40ct fabric myself. :D

Jolene, yet another lovely giveaway! A gorgeous repro and I would most likely stitch it on 32 or 40 ct, depending on where I would want it to hang. Thanks for the opportunity to win!
