Spring Fever Give-a-way starts now!


Brand new pair of scissors from Pineberry Lane
Old Fashioned Scissors--the small pair


These were mine while I opened them a while back. I ordered a pair for this giveaway too.



So your pair will come like this with fragrance of Sweet Annie on the tie and let me tell you!  These are sharp, sharp scissors. I LOVE mine!  I had to share as I had alot of comments on these before.



The second item in the Spring Fever Giveaway is a new pair of Gingher's

 Gingher Epaulette scissors, new in box and ready for your stitchy hands!

I also have a pair of these, for about a year now and they are sharp as well and of course the name, Gingher will explain why. The quality is awesome! These have gold handles and very ornate.

So.  The lucky winner will have 2 new pair of scissors and if you already have a pair of them, they will make beautiful gifts.



For the Third part of the giveaway is this beautiful sampler pattern from Pineberry Lane, brand new in package

called

A Faithful Friend Sampler

188 x 112

Got cabin fever yet? Well, about this time of year, with the touch or two of warmer days, brings hope for Spring. However, I know we still have a little Winter to go so I'm hoping that these will brighten someone's day.

Remember to post separately for up to 3 chances for your name in the pot.

For one chance, just post as a follower.
For two chances, post again if you have a blog, that you have put it on your blog,
and for a third chance post how you usually stitch the most, whether it be "in hand", a hoop, a needlework stand, Q snap or however.
International accepted

Remember that a random number generator will pick the winner on March 1st so this gives you time to spread the word to your stitching friends! Only post here on this posting if you are interested.

I just want to thank everyone for all their comments. They mean alot to me. Your messages, both on the blog and email, have been encouraging and it's so delightful to connect to people all over the world! 

As in this sampler verse

Remember well and bear in mind,
A Faithful friend is hard to find.

~~~~~~~~
Surround yourselves with loving friends and those that choose not to be, pray for. That's the best gift you can give!

Till later,
jennifer

  2. I usually use a hoop when I stitch - I have not used anything else - If it is a small pattern I will just stitch by hand - I would like to try some other methods But have not had the opportunity yet-

    Thank you for the lovely giveaway :)

  3. Wow, am I the first to comment? Scissors is my weakness, I collect them. DH always asks why I need so many pairs of scissors.

    Have been following your blog for quite a while. Would love a chance to own these scissors, thank you.

    Hugs,

  4. I stitch free hand without hoop. I enjoy the freedom of movement and have no problem with stitching tension.

    I have seen Q-snaps being used frequently, may try them one day.

    Hugs,

  5. Ooooh what an amazing giveaway. You are so generous! Love the scissors and the chart. I am a follower as always. xxx

  6. I always always use a hoop for my stitching to keep it nice and taught to make the stitches even. I have recently found a new frame which is fab called Grip n Stitch which grips the fabric tight and you can make the frame up to the size you want. Really good and I ned to get another one but they are quite expensive. xx

  10. My perference for stitching depends on the the project. Mostly though I stitch in hand. I do have a couple of my i-Challenge projects on scroll bars. It jsut depends on the size of the project.

  17. Jennifer, please add my name to the drawing. The scissors would be a wonderful addition to my growing collection and I love Pineberry Lane designs but don't have any yet!

    I am a follower and will try to remember to post this on my blog today. My favorite way to stitch is with my wooden hoop. I have tried other methods but always go back to my favorite!

    Thanks so much for doing this to brighten the last days of Winter.

  18. Jennifer, you are such a generous person. I would love to be entered in your give away. I usually stitch in Q snaps, sometimes with the needlework frame mounted in a floor stand. I used to stitch in hand but arthritis has stopped that. I am still recuperating from that hand surgery but hope to be stitching very soon. I even did the 15 day challenge to motivate me when the cast comes off. Thanks for a great blog, Janet

  25. Third one, I used to stich "in hand" and I still do when the project is very small, (biscornu)or so. But I prefer to stich using hoop, you take more time, but the result is better.

    Thanks for the giveaway.

  27. Hi Jennifer, What a nice gift. I am a follower. I ususally stitch with Q-snaps, a hoop, or on Evertite stretcher bars if I am working on canvas. I did one large Maureen Appleton piece over one and in hand and it did not drive me crazy. I also stitch using a stand. I have a Lowery on one side of my chair and a System 4on the other. The System 4 is for travel but it made it into my stitching area.

    Thanks for a great blog and pets to Abby.

  30. Although I have tried stitching in hand and stretcher bars on a stand, my favorite way to stitch is with a hoop. Probably because that was how I learned to stitch many moons ago.
    LOVE, LOVE, love this giveaway!
    Wish I had a blog so I could enter a third time.
    Have a great day!

  41. Most often I use q-snaps in my hand. When i'm watching tv is when I usually use this type. If i'm listening to my ipod or just music, then I use my stand-an old Tomorrows Treasures stand.

    But it also depends on what i am working on. My Dyan Allaire is only done using my stand, it is too big and too heavy to hold in hand.

  42. I usually stitch in hand. I need one of those nifty things I see other bloggers use... it's white and kinda like a frame. I have two wooden ones, but they have these metal things that attach the frame together and they are always scraping my hands and arms, so I don't like to use them. :( They were gifts from a cross stitching friend many many years ago.

  59. I always use a hoop and have for years. I like the German hoops as they hold the linen tight and are heavier and stronger than others. It is fun to have different shapes...but oval is my favorite. pj

  61. I do a lot "in hand" but I tend to do large, detailed pieces, so I'd have to say most of my work is done in a frame. I prefer scroll rods over Q-snaps.

  112. I stitch with a Q Snap...I have 2, a small one and a larger one. I really need to invest in a mid-sized one because I'm frequently annoyed by the fact that mine are awkward. I hold it in one hand and stitch with the other...which usually leads to the holding hand being very stiff :-)

  161. I always stitched in hand until I took hardanger classes when I began to use wooden hoops. My preference now is QSnaps.

  162. Gorgeous scissors and such a generous giveaway.
    Love the scriptfabric too, and wonder which brand it is?

  163. My stitching is done mostly in my hand, and don't really know what a Q-snap is. For a large sampler I use a frame which I bought in Somerset, UK.

  168. I have used a hoop but only rarely, which makes me an in hand stitcher, enjoying the feel of the fabric between my fingers.

  172. I actually learned to needlepoint from my mom when I was little. She had a metal hoop that had tape on it because over the years it had lost its tension somehow. 40 years later when I am doing smaller needlepoint I still use my moms hoop (with added tape) I feel like it is my lucky charm, whatever I make in it will turn out great.
    Thanks again for the chance to win an amazing giveaway.

  178. I usually stitch freehand, unless it is petit point, then I use a hoop because of the tension.
