Cabin Fever Giveaway!


Time for a give-a-way to a stitching friend. It's been cold for way too long and in alot of the U.S, quite frigid temps, even below 0 at night, snow, snow and more snow. I hear the U.S. will be getting another artic blast to add more snow to the upper regions. So, because you are my friends and I love you AND if you are like me and love to see the mailman deliver goodies, especially stitching goodies, then, you'll like this one. I call it the Cabin Fever Give-A-Way because it' a mixture of friends and Spring all wrapped in one. AHHHHH, Spring will come one day.
This will include the frame for the project, which is a dark navy wood with small stenciling in darker red and a cute little birdie perched on the left. This is a high quality Kay's frames. I've had it for a while in my stash and I would love for you to house it after stitching the piece. The frame is 9 x 7 with the interior open part of 4.5 x 5.5 inches. Just cute sitting on a window sill near the front door or a kitchen windowsill.
There are 2 cute charms that come with it as well as the cream linen perfect for the piece.

Here's the birdie tweeting to you for a new home. He promises an early Spring this year.



I have always been pleased with Kay's Frames products. I'm not sure if she even still makes frames but I can tell you the quality is good.

The pattern is easy to read, fold-out, with a list of the Weeks Dye Works threads needed. I do not have the threads included. There is a conversion to DMC if you would like. The fabric called for is Jobelan but this fabric is not Jobelan but a 28 count cream belfast linen.

Here's the design.

And I certainly hope that whoever wins this piece loves it or shares it as a gift to a friend. Because as this says, A true friend is a treasure of the heart.

So all you frozen hearts who want to wish for an early Spring and have Cabin Fever.....you know the rules on give aways but I'll post again for newbies:

1) for one name in the pot, just be a follower of the blog and post in this posting only.


2) for 2 names in the pot, post this give-away (may use the side bar picture) on your own blog to share the news with other snow-ed in friends! Then do a second post to let me know in this posting only.


3) for 3 names in the pot, put a different posting with the most inches of snow you have received in your area this Winter! Again.....in this posting only. This is simply so I can compile all those names in one area at the end to write and cut in little strips for the winner.

Good luck

Oh, yeah, international blog readers always welcome too!
This starts today and goes through January 20th at which time on midnight of January 20th, I will draw a name and announce sometime there after. Stay-tuned! This will be fun!

Coming up at Valentines is the next give-away I'm putting together for a sweet treat.
Hint: There is pink involved.

Hope you stay warm and cozy and have a great day. It's clouding here a little and I'm hoping for some white snow on the ground by tonight even if it's just a dusting.
So, all those with 20 or more inches I'm hearing about on the Weather Channel, funnel it all down this way so we can build a snowman.

Tootalooo,
Jennifer

  15. For #3.....
    I would love to say that we have had tons of snow and that I was "stuck" inside so that I could stitch all day without feeling guilty. While we have had bitterly cold weather (our highs are barely hitting the seasonal lows...if at all), we have only had a dusting of snow. We are supposed to be receiving a few flurries tonight, but knowing the snow forcast around here it will not amount to much. :(

  16. What a lovely start to the New Year. Here in the UK it's pretty 'nippy' too. We had our first white Christmas for years. I was in the Lake District over the holidays and it was magical. Back home now in Norfolk, we are near the coast, so we don't get as much snow as some of the other parts of the country. But the wind coming off the North Sea (direct from Siberia) gives us a wind chill factor like you wouldn't believe. Norfolk is very flat, too, so the winds send the snow flying everywhere.

  76. With being in Canada snow is normal, what's the most we have got in one snow fall, as some days the snow just keeps on a falling!!

    Don't have too much at the moment though probably only a few inches, and we are in for a warming trend, so hopefully it will all melt!!
