Thanks to all for your participation in this week’s book give-away! I read each one of your 300+ comments and it was great fun hearing about your favorite stitch dictionaries. Your favorites and mine seem to coincide, for the most part – there were a couple mentions of little gems that I haven’t gotten my grubby paws on, though, and with your glowing recommendations, I find myself compelled to check out some of your favorites that I haven’t seen yet.
OH NOOOOooooo! You know what this means, don’t you!!? No! No! I must not succumb!!!!
I’ll just keep repeating to myself, “No More Books. No More Books. No More Books….”
But I don’t think it’ll work.
Well, today being Saturday, and the weather being happily autumnal, and darn it, because I want to, I’ve decided to give away three copies of Stitch Sampler. There are just too many people out there who need another book (or a first stitch dictionary!), after all.
Besides, why not spread the joy a bit?
Here, drawn randomly, are the winners!
1. Julie in Australia, who said: I haven’t got a proper stitch dictionary yet. During the last year I have started doing specialty stitches which I love, some stitches have been described in charts, but others I’ve had to find on the internet. A book would be so much easier and this one is so wonderfully colourful.
2. Betsy Evans, who said: I am always looking for new stitches to add to my repertoire. There are 25 others letters of the alphabet besides “X”.
3. Pat Barry, who said, I’ve only just started embroidery and don’t have a stitch guide. Previously I did cross stitch and hardanger and wanted to branch out into something new.I have been learning new stitches on the internet but a book would be so much more useful.
Congrats to all three! Now, if I could’ve given away 300+ books, you know I would’ve – but never fear! There will be other give-aways of Useful Things for Stitchers in the near future!
Winners, please contact me with your mailing address so I can get those books on their way to you!
Have a terrific weekend! I’m taking tomorrow off, but I’ll see you again Monday!
