Last week, I reviewed Yvette Stanton’s new whitework book, Sardinian Knotted Embroidery, for you, and this week, I thought I’d follow up with a give-away!
I love giving away at least one copy of a new book after reviewing it, but in this case, I’ll be giving away two copies, courtesy of Vetty Creations.
And that’s just dandy! That means your chance of winning just doubled!
Sardinian knotted embroidery combines counted work with the coral stitch to create textured geometric designs that are usually embroidered in white-on-white, but can also be worked in other combinations, as demonstrated in the various projects in Yvette’s book.
It’s an intriguing, different technique, pretty seldom seen in the wider embroidery world since it is a traditional form of embroidery exclusive to a small area of the world.
The book makes interesting reading and is jam-packed with instruction and manageable projects – a perfect addition to your needlework library!
If you’d like to enter today’s give-away, here are the simple guidelines to follow:
This give-away is now closed. Thanks for participating!
1. Leave a comment below – please do not send your comment via email in reply to the newsletter or leave it on any other article on the website. Just follow this link to go directly to the comment area. Comments left elsewhere or sent in via email will not be eligible. (Sorry, just can’t keep up with them…)
2. Make sure there is a recognizable name in the “name” line on the comment form, or in the comment box itself. If your name is Sue, for example, you might differentiate yourself from other Sue’s out there – Sue in Sardinia, for example…
3. In your comment, please answer the following:
What do you especially like about Sardinian knotted embroidery? (If you haven’t seen any of it, feel free to check out my review – there are photos!) Is it the fact that it’s counted work? That it’s whitework embroidery? That it is textured? Geometrical? New to you? Fairly obscure and you’d never seen it before, so you’re intrigued? All of the above? None of the above? What grabs you about it and makes you want to try it?
4. Please leave your comment before 5:00 am (CDT, Kansas USA) this coming Saturday, July 26, and on Saturday, I’ll announce the two winners. If you win, you’ll need to contact me, so if you join in, keep an eye out for the announcement on this Saturday.
And that’s all there is to it – simple, simple!
Now, go forth and comment! And good luck!
Hummingbirds tomorrow, by the way – I’ve already changed things since the last article…
