I'm so dearly excited that I must share with you an order just for someone special who holds stitching dear to their soul as much as I have over the past years and especially through trying times this past year when my faith and spirits have been tested to the core.

I want to celebrate by giving. Giving something to a stitcher who knows how stitching mends souls. This give away includes the whole kit and kaboodle so you won't have to worry one bit at finding the threads or the special linen to finish it.

This give-away is appropriately named  Brandon's Homecoming Give-away.

Here it goes:

1/  please post here on this posting only if you are a follower of this blog. If you are not, you are welcome to join so I can get to know you better and connect with friends around the world.

2/ For a second chance, please post a second post if you have a blog that you have announced it or put on your blog to share the celebration!

3/ International accepted

4/ For a third chance, please post a third entry and put in your greetings to Brandon as if you were there when the bus rolls up and he and his unit are walking out to greet!  He will read these responses I'm sure so all encouragement is appreciated for a job well-done for our country.

5/ This starts today through midnight April 5th, Easter.  I will use the Computer Random Generator for name draw.

6/ A great big thanks to you for being supportive, for saying prayers, for listening to my ups and downs through the year and accepting me as I am. Also I love you all for your comments, constructive criticism that I sorely needed, and I so look forward to meeting more people around the world.

Remember the war is still ongoing and we should all be saying prayers for all NATO countries involved, who still have sons and daughters, spouses and good friends who are serving for the purpose of abolishing terrorism.

Back to Easter stitching this afternoon. The sun is shining outside and it's 74 degrees. Great for Easter stitching!
