Welcome to the third installment of A Stitcher’s Christmas for 2019!
If you haven’t joined in on the previous installments, you can still get in on give-away #2, featuring the lovely hand-turned wood needlework tools from Stitch In Turn. You can join in here.
The first installment ended today – I’ll announcing the winner at the end of today’s article.
Now, just in case you’re already tired of winter (if you live in the northern hemisphere) or you’re already sweltering in summer (if you live in the southern hemisphere), here’s a refreshing respite!
Complements of Di van Niekerk, who I consider the Absolute Queen of Silk Ribbon Embroidery, today’s installment of A Stitcher’s Christmas is a sumptuous silk ribbon embroidery kit, replete with everything you need to recreate Di’s garden scene, Pink Delight.
After a chilly autumn and a cold, grey winter, imagine how delightfully refreshing it would be to see this luxurious garden scene! You can almost smell the flowers!
Di’s kit for Pink Delight – which you can read about here – comes with ribbons, threads, needles, and the transferred panel ready to embroider.
Many stitchers make a resolution to try something new in the New Year – maybe 2020 is your year for silk ribbon embroidery? If it is, you won’t find a better teacher than Di!
By following the tutorials for the project, you’ll learn many ribbon embroidery and surface embroidery techniques that will enhance your future projects, too.
For those of you who are already into silk ribbon embroidery, this kit is an excellent way to expand your skills or just to revel in some gorgeous threads and silks while you “plant” this delightful corner of a flowery paradise.
If you’ve never explored Di’s blog, you should. It’s full of all kinds of tutorials and information for the silk ribbon enthusiast. Why not put it on your weekend reading list and take a good browse? There are all sorts of treasures to discover!
This give-away has ended! Thanks to those who participated!
1. Leave a comment on the comment form below. If you’re not sure how to get to the comment form, click on this link – it will take you straight there. Your comment must be left on the website on today’s article, not on any other article. Comments submitted via email are not eligible and I am not able to reply to them due to time constraints. Please do not comment as a reply to another comment. Replies are not counted.
2. Be sure that your comment has a name on it that is recognizable as yours. For example, Nick is a pretty common name, so if your name is Nick, you might put your last name or your last initial, or maybe your middle name. Or you might put a recognizable-to-you nick name. Or you might add a reference to where you live – for example, “Nick at the North Pole” or something like that.
The reason I particularly mention this one is that it reduces confusion when the winner is announced. It’s always hard to disappoint people if they mistake the name for their own!
3. Make certain your email address on the comment form is entered correctly, so that I can email you if you win. Leave the “website” line of the comment form empty. Please Do Not Put your personal contact information in the comment box itself. In other words, don’t sign your comment with your email address or your mailing address! That’s just an invitation for spam.
4. In your comment, answer the following question:
If you had to pick one aspect of Silk Ribbon Embroidery that really makes your heart sing, what would it be and why? If you’re just beginning to explore the possibilities of SRE and you need some inspiration to figure out this one out, pop by Di’s website and check out her gallery!
5. Leave your comment before 5:00 AM central time (Kansas, USA) Wednesday, December 11th. The winners will be randomly drawn that morning and will be announced at the beginning of that day’s give-away. I’ll draw three winners in a row, and each tool will go to the winners in the same order they are listed above.
So if you’re hankering for a gorgeous silk ribbon embroidery kit to enjoy in the New Year, go forth and comment!
