Christmas Give-A-Way for a Special Stitching Friend

Always Remember Poem

Always remember to forget
the things that made you sad
But never forget to remember
The things that made you glad.
Always remember to forget
The friends that proved untrue.
But don't forget to remember
Those that have stuck by you.
Always remember to forget
The troubles that have passed away.
But never forget to remember
The blessings that come each day.

- Author Unknown


I put much thought into this give-a-way. As far as 3 months ago, I was collecting items to put into a gift. I wish I could give to each and every one of the readers of this blog because you have all been special to me. But, I cannot; however, I do hope that you know I do appreciate you taking time out of your day to visit me here.

This poem Always Remember reminds me to appreciate what really matters. This week has been a very rough one for me. Physically and emotionally. But, I do realize when it all really sifts out, that I'm blessed more than I ever could imagine and I should be more thankful for it. I'm not wealthy by any means, and I've worked very hard for what I do have. But there are so many more people a whole lot less fortunate than me.

Our life is truly a journey through good times and bad. Our lives intersect maybe for only a short moment, or even a month, or year, maybe even longer. For whatever it has been, I do appreciate your input into the support, friendship, good conversation, and sharing stitching fun. Stitching has been part of my life since I was about 5 years old, playing with those old stitching cards. Then, when my best friend from elementary school taught me to cross stitch, I knew I loved it! That was my first Stitch-a long and I didn't even know it! ;)


Our friendship parted my first year of marriage. Not intentionally really at all but when you are in a domestic violence relationship, believe me, friends run fast away. At that time of my life, I didn't know where the next meal was coming from. She got engaged, asked me to be in her wedding and it caused a big misunderstanding of sorts when I couldn't pay for my bridesmaid dress, heck, I couldn't even figure out how to be safe from day to day and get money for groceries. But, over time, she came to realize that and we still keep in touch at Christmas once a year. I do miss her. She was my first cross stitching buddy. She was very happy when I got out of that situation even though it took me 11 years to make the choice.

Through the years as life presented some real challenges, it's always one thing I knew I could go to and just accomplish. I never thought I would meet so many friends from around the world before I started writing in this blog. Most people I've never met in person, but we share a common passion and that is stitching and/ or reading. I love both. It touches my heart so much when you write me and tell me things like, your praying for me, my son. Well, to be honest, it makes me cry, but happy tears.

I picked out a special box that I ordered a while back and it finally came yesterday in the mail. I was so excited to get it so I could finally post this give-a-way! I listened to you and heard that you loved scissors the most and then, secondly, something to store them in. That was the reason for the poll.

The box is special because you can stitch a special piece and put into the top. When you lift the lid it plays "That's What Friends Are For". It winds underneath and when you open it, you can see the little music playing. It has a hardanger pattern with it but you can substitute your own.
It has 2 small openings and you could even put children's pics in it.

I hope you enjoy this Christmas and in some way if I can add to someone a special Christmas this year, I want to. Many Christmas's have passed and I put too much energy into people I feel obligated to buy for and then it's really not what they want.
But, I know you like this if you stitch!
Every time you open the box, remember how much I appreciate your friendship.




The scissors I picked were all Kelmscott scissors. The Love Scissors (I have a pair of those and LOVE THEM!), the new Tudor Rose silver scissors, and the Hilliar Scissors (I want Santa to bring me a pair of those too!)




I also picked up 2 strawberry pin cushions and also 2 stacking boxes, or should I say STASHING BOXES!

I hope you enjoy these scissors.......



And also, put in a beautiful sampler pattern by Tanya Anderson, On Travel With Jane Austen!
I've seen this sampler finished on another blog and it's gorgeous!

The box at the top.
Scissors ready for some lucky winner! And boxes to store the things you fancy the most!




So, if you might be interested in a chance at this Santa package for the stitcher:

1) Post one comment under this posting only.

2) You must be a follower of my blog. If and when you are, post a second comment to say so.

3) For a third chance to be added into the hat, post a third comment telling me that you have posted this give-away on your blog, if you have one.

4) Please leave some method of contact information so if you win, Santa will slide down the right chimney! LOL

5) The deadline for this give-a-way is December 15th. This gives me a week before I leave on a trip to get Santa all loaded up to the North Pole! Sometimes I'm slow at going to the post office, I confess.

6) The drawing for this give-away will be sometime on or about December 16th. I'm working full time so I try hard to meet obligations but I can't be exact.

7) The winner will also receive another pair of mystery scissors.

8) Anonymous entries or followers cannot be included because I don't know who you are.

9) International readers are welcome! You are special to Santa too........

Have fun!

Merry Christmas (early) and hope you are full on Turkey and shopped till you dropped this weekend! {{{{{{{giggle}}}}}}

Well, I'm off to finishing another piece.

    Also, I was just thinking about what you said about people coming in your life.
    I have always believed people come into your life for a reason. Sometimes it is to help you and sometimes it is to help them. It may be for a minute, an hour, a week or years. But everyone who has come into my life has been a blessing. Sometimes they have blessed me by being there. And sometimes they have blessed me by leaving! LOL. There is always a reason, though. You have made my day today. Thank you very much!

  97. Reading your post gave me goose bumps. I too had been in a prior violent relationship that took me 7years to get out of and you are correct; the friends vanish. The people at the center for domestic violence heped me to understand a few things. One being that only about 10% get out of such a relationship. We are their success stories! Always remember you are a suceess. Congratulatons for refusing to do pennance for someone else's bad behavior!!
    Your giveaway is wonderful. Thank you for the opportunity.

  153. What a truly awesome giveaway. I too am in the medical field and stitching is my sanity preserver but I'm certainly not as prolific in the stitching department as you are!

    I love the box and the scissors! The pair of scissors that I have were a gift from a very dear friend.

    I will keep my fingers crossed and wish you and yours a very happy festive season.

  171. Hola, Jennifer! Acabo de descubrir su sorteo visitando otro blog. Y como me gustaron las tijeras, vine a anotarme en su sorteo. Pero he quedado enamorada de sus publicaciones y de la emoción que Ud. pone en cada uno de ellas! Felicitaciones por sentir y compartir! Adoraría recibir el regalo, ya que necesito las tijeras (acabo de iniciarme en hardanger y me di cuenta cuán necesarias son)! Pero eso resultaría sólo un recuerdo de sus bellas palabras! Voy a publicar la noticia en mi blog y hacerme su seguidora! Fuerte Abrazo!

  189. The box is just so pretty and dainty. I will be back often to visit.
    Please, enter me into your give- a-way.
    I do love scissors and have many pairs but one can never have too many scissors. And why is it that when you need to clip a thread or cut something your scissors are always across the room?
    Your stitching is lovely. My blog is theflyingitchesneedle.blogspot.com. Come by and see me if you have time. I love your dogs btw they are so cute.
    God Bless ~
