A Simple Christmas Giveaway

Friday. A week in review. Another fast week. Another week of life lessons.

December. The beginning of another season. A season of hope.

Sometimes all we need is hope. I'm looking forward to a new season on many levels and hope that you too will find hope in whatever you are going through whether good or bad, ups or downs.

In the middle of a turbulent season of my life this past 6 months especially, I have been reminded that there is hope. I want to thank each of you again as I did before for your prayers, your strength, your kindness, and just hanging in here with me as I wrote several months ago. I'm very hopeful that this season of struggle, to put it lightly, is closing and a new brighter chapter is in the near future.

At Christmas, I've always loved to give whether it be my time, my talents, or gifts.

A couple of months ago, I ordered from Pineberry Lane and also ordered a Blackbird Design book that would be the perfect Christmas giveaway this year for anyone who loves samplers, vintage scissors and 32 ct Belgian linen to make your samplers. It's been moved from one place to another through the chaotic past few months but now time has settled things and finally getting to posting it.




I've ordered from Pineberry Lane in the past and this is where I knew the quality of products and linen is awesome!
book by Blackbird Designs, A Schoolgirl's Work is a beautiful 110 page book of old samplers, the history of the making of them, and several patterns from those samplers. I do not have one myself but hope one day to order one as I was so impressed with the quality and beautiful pictures and patterns in this book.
Of course with Blackbird Designs, you know that spells quality by itself.

The scissors are wrapped with sprigs of lavender, as well as the linen.
I am going to leave those unopened but here are a few pics:



32 ct fat quarter of linen from Pineberry Lane



and the vintage scissors from Pineberry Lane



The season started here in April with a prayer alone
and all since then was in God's hands. I had tried to fix things myself but as you most know there is a time to let go and that time had come.  I had no idea how or what events would take place but
just as I said in the post in the Springtime when I gave this pair of scissors, sampler and linen,
I will say again.

One thing is the same throughout all seasons in life:

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!



I have to say this even again and I'm so glad there is at least that one constant in life we can count on through all seasons.

The Christmas Season shared with you.

Good luck!

Basic things as usual:
1) be or become a follower of this blog and post here
2) international accepted
3) all 3 in one gift to the winner
4) if anonymous, please also put a way to reach you if your name is drawn from the random selector
5) for 2 chances, post twice, once as a follower, and second as your favorite pair of scissors.
6) for a third chance, post a third time that you posted on your blog, if you have one.

Starting today and ending on December 24th at midnight.

Abbie and I appreciate your patience with hanging in with us through some horrific events. I cannot and won't share this on a public domain. Just know that it's in God's hands and for all that we did survive and go through, we will be ok. We thank those that chose to stand by us and not leave.



I have but one Christmas wish this year and I've learned to keep it inside between myself and God for He already knows what that wish is.

I'm glad I was able to keep the strength to keep blogging although my stitching came to a hault for awhile.
I hope this changes soon and I finish at least A Christmas Heart sampler which is really just a simple verse from a movie that means alot to me and even though simple it represents my Christmas this year.

  I will say that it's time for rest now. It's time to sleep, to rest, and to eat and never give up on our Christmas wish.

Till later,
Jennifer

  2. Dear Jennifer: What a generous giveaway! Please include me in the drawing. I read your blog nearly every day. I feel we would be stitching (and shopping) buddies if we were neighbors! Merry Christmas to you and Abbie!

  3. Merry Christmas to you Jennifer and Abbie! Blessings to you and peace in your body and soul. May we all be as strong as I feel you have had to be these past few months. While I don't need to know the sorrows and burdens you are needing to bear-you are in my daily thoughts and prayers, my friend. I think you must brush dear little Abbie daily! She always looks to perfection!! Take care of yourself and eat your fruits and veggies and put on a few pounds! (So throw in plenty of chocolate cake!) Oh-I almost forgot-please enter me in the beautiful give-away! Thanks-peace be with you.~~Rain

  4. Oh Jen, those side trips along life's road have a few bumps here and there, but they become ~little~ bumps when we're nurtured by the love of family, faith and friends. I'll join the merry fun too, thx for your kindness and good luck to all.

  5. Hi Jennifer glad that you are feeling well..I too learned this year that family doesn't necessarily mean friend and actually can mean the total opposite...but I pulled my big girl pants on and I am looking towards this holiday season as a new birth of lots of personal stuff and I am so glad to read that you are in the holiday mode...Happy Holidays to you...

  72. My only pair of scissors are a cheap pair I got on clearance at Wal-Mart back when they used to do stitching stuff. I've never really had the money to get a fancy pair. They are generally lost somewhere in the couch as well, so I generally use my all-purpose Friskars to cut whatever I need.

    ReplyDelete
  73. I would love to be included in this fabulous giveaway! What a wonderful group of gifts! I've had your blog in my reader for a long time but I must have forgotten to click the follower thing because I wasn't on it, so I am now. :)

    I hope whatever trials and tribulations you have been experiencing will lighten soon.

    It's funny... I was just thinking about you the other day. I thought I had read you were going to delete your blog. Glad you didn't!

    I am so far behind on my blog reading, it isn't funny.

    You are right, though... A loyal friend is hard to find. Unfortunately, I feel that way about family members too.

    Hang in there.

    Please include me in your giveaway.

  89. I've posted about your giveaway on my blog.

    I forgot to tell you about my favorite scissors. I'd have to say they are my stork ginghers because they were the first pair of scissors I ever bought. At age 19, the $20 I spent on them was a lot of money. They are still sharp and shiny as ever. I have others I like, but the ginghers have sentimental value ☺

    Merry Christmas to you, Jennifer. Give the pup a pat on the head for me.

  90. Jennifer, I just became aware of your blog through Meari's blog. I have read just a bit of yours and I am terribly sorry for the ordeal you've endured this year. God can heal all hurts and I will definitely keep you in my prayers, as I am a survivor of domestic violence, as well. God bless you and keep you, and may He give you the peace and safety you are entitled to. Such lovely scissors, I have never seen the like. I look forward to future blog posts of yours.

  94. Now about my favorite scissors--
    they are a small pair, purple on the handles, bought them couple years ago at our local craft store before it closed down-(became a framers). I always use these in my stitching,have another pair (from the hospital) that I use in my crocheting- and then by chance, got some things from an aunt that passed away this last year- in her sewing box--was a pair of very fine scissors- with "made in Italy" stamped on them....always heard about those...never thought I would ever own a pair...had to clean the up real good...she used them for EVERYTHING! : ) Thank-you.... for the 2nd entry in yoyr give-away.....

  117. My favorite scissor is the one with the golden color large handles from DMC (I realy don't know if they have a special name)but they look like the one you have in the give away. I just love scissors with those kind of handles, they are wonderful !!

  120. Dear Jennifer
    I bought some new scissors at the Harrogate Knit & Stitch show, they are great, one end has a little cutout so it holds the thread so it doesn't slip. There is no makers name on them.
