St. Patrick's Day Give-a-Way --Don't miss this one and Spread the word!

These are on special order this week for a Irish Giveaway. Being part Irish myself, I can't help but share with you my favorites.

I don't have a pair myself of these brand-spanking new CHOCOLATE Kelmscott Scissors, but I knew I had to include this in the give-away. I have several other colors and have enjoyed their size for travel. They are too cute and so useful. These Chocolate ones are the latest from the Nashville market 2010.
Also included is a wool fat quarter which would beautifully back any of your St. Patrick's Day needlebooks or pinkeeps. This is on order from The Sampler Girl's Webshop. Pic is from her webshop, hope I don't get 3 strkes for that, Tanya! ;) I couldn't wait to get those in. I order one fat quarter for myself as well to back something I'm stitching soon.


And the last thing included is the pattern for the Irish Needlebook from The Sampler Girl.

You know the basic rules for give-aways I'm sure but just in case......
1) Please post all postings to this post----that sounds clear right? just joking
2) For 1 name in the pot, enter your name if you are a signed up follower. That way I get to know you and meet people from all over the world.
3) For 2 names in the pot, enter a second posting entry under this post with the name of your blog and that you put it on your blog to spread the word! Note: Gossiping on this blog is a good thing!
4) For 3 names in the pot, enter a third posting and simply enter your favorite brand of scissors you use. (this helps with future giveaways....hint hint).
International accepted.
The Give away starts now through March 7th midnight EST. A drawing on or about March 8th is the goal. These items are on order from 2 different places so I hope they will all be in by March 10th and I can send out then. If not, it's ok, life is like that and I shouldn't have waited so long to
get myself together this week but just a note to let you know. I hope you are fast stitchers!
To celebrate those new Kelmscott Scissors in Chocolate, there will also be something Chocolate tucked in your give-a-way package too. In fact, I'm munching on one right now.......
Good LUCK!!!!!
This morning, out of coffee. OH NO! But I'm subbing out my hot tea and my kettle is calling.
Hope your Sunday is relaxed. I have a meeting to attend this afternoon for a whole different stressful event but God is in charge right now and all I have to do is have faith.
Till later,
Jennifer
P. S. I tried to give away Green Beer and tickets to Savannah Georgia to celebrate but that didn't go over so good with a hubbie in law enforcement......hehehehehehee

  2. Those scissors are really cute! I know I have been reading your blog for a few months now but I just sign up for being a follower. If you want, my blog is Nutmegger's Stitching Works. I have been admiring your work for awhile and Abbie is so cute. I just love reading stories about her. I dont have a favorite brand of scissors but lately I have been using a pair of Victorian scissors, which are emerald green. I love them!

  84. Hi Jennifer,
    I follow your blog & I will sign up to be a follower. I am a chocoholic & have been for years. Chocolate is my favorite & I even make chocolate candy, all kinds! I would love to have a chance to enter your drawing. I really like those little chocolate scissors. My favorite scissors for cutting are a pair made in Italy from Sears & I have had them since the late 60's. I have a pair of Victorian Embroidery scissors which I use a good part of the time. I also have a pair of scissors that were my grandmothers & they are made by Allentown Cutlery Co., Allentown, PA. I also
    use a pair of Altos (Italy)
    thread cutters & a pair of
    De Luxe pinking shears also
    from Italy. I would love to have a pair of Kelmscott
    scissors someday. That chart is really cute & the
    plaid fabrics are pretty.
