The Fallower Fall Give-A-Way starts here~~~

Who is in the mood for some Fall stitching?????

some Quaker stitching?????

something practical for Fall and Quaker???????

Yep, if you are the lucky Fallower for this Spectacles Pocket ( Quaker Pocket Needfuls) by Primitive Traditions


PLUS!

32 count Vintage Autumn Field Belfast linen



Plus a Kelmscott Acorn Threadkeeper
(threads not included)

for a Fall Stashing Give-a-way
on Feathers in the Nest!

I'm itching for Fall right now, literally, with a Ragweed allergy from......well, a hot place. ;)
Ezema is the name of the game right now.

So, I'm looking forward to that first good frost which is probably a good ways away when ragweed and other allergens pass away; however,
getting a jump-start on Fall stitching is just plain fun to do in anticipation of cooler days, sweaters, boots, pumpkins, mums, and leaf-color, day-tripping here in the mountains!

If you are like me and usually can't find your spectacles to stitch your designs, you need to make a pocket for them to stash in your purse or stitching bag.

Included in this give-a-way are the new pattern of The Spectacles Pocket by Primitive Traditions (Quaker style), Kelmscott Acorn Thread keeper in Mother of Pearl, and a 13 x 18 cut of 32 ct Vintage Autumn Field Belfast linen!

Important reminders are:

1) post only to this posting if you want a chance or two or three for this lovely set

2) must be a follower new, or old, or anything in between. New followers are always welcome!

3)international accepted

4) for 2 chances make a separate posting and name your most favorite thing about Fall, whether it be flowers (mums), food, cooler weather, football games, school-starting, or any other Fallower-friendly thing that makes you smile.  ;)

My favorite thing about Fall is starting up the fireplace at the homestead. I love warming toes together with my honey by the fireplace!

5) for 3 chances post a separate posting that you have shared this on your blog (if you have one) in some way.

Starts today and ends August 31st at midnight EST USA.

Good luck!

  86. What do I love about fall? Everything! The smell of leaves and wood burning; the crisp cool air; and the vibrant reds, oranges, and yellows of the trees! I love fall festivals and arts & crafts fairs; especially the ones centered around Halloween. I love hayrides with family & friends, navigating corn mazes, and attending local fairs and carnivals with their candy apples and cotton candy! And certainly, I love sitting in front of a warm, toasty fire, with my stitching in hand, and watching the sunset...nothing like it in the world!!

  99. What I love about fall is first my birthday falls in the months of fall. Even though I have to get a year older and my birthday is never anything that spectacular I still love the fall for that. Second, I love cool weather, starting the fireplace and all the pumpkins and the pictures in the magazines of the fall decorations, apple cidar and going to Wisconsin to the apple orchards and the drive looking at the changing fall leaves into beautiful color.

    ReplyDelete
  100. I love Fall! I miss the crisp, clean air and being able to wear sweaters! Here in the hot Southwest, we don't get much fall unless we drive a ways.

  115. My favorite thing about fall is, believe it or not, the smell. You know when you are sitting in your lounge (living room) and still have the window open and all of a sudden you get this wonderful smell of Autumn (Fall) in your house. That's my most favorite thing now. When I was in the States (as a child/teenager) my favorite thing then was the turning colors of the leaves. I just loved them but here in the U.K. we only get that after we have had a good summer and we haven't had one of those since 1976 so guess I won't be holding my breath anytime soon.
    Love
    Patti xxx

  120. For me, Fall is the wonderful scent of a spirited bonfire, the dancing of yellow and orange leaves turning color on a cool day, fresh cider from a peaceful country farm and harvesting fresh produce from a bountiful Fall garden. I've also posted to my blog toolbar just because:)

    ReplyDelete
