Springtime Giveaway

How do you all feel about a Springtime Giveaway? I know I am all for it!


I had to de-stash some of my fabric collection, which also includes finished prototypes I have created for sewing and embroidery tutorials and hand embroidered pieces of fabric. 


This is a grab bag giveaway of sorts, where winners will receive a parcel with surprise contents! 

Parcels could include: fabric pieces (scraps good for small sewing projects), hand embroidered pieces, finished hand embroidered items (mini easter baskets, luggage tags, wine tote, embroidery project tote, apron), there is also a cross stitch kit in there for one lucky winner.


Five lucky readers could win a parcel. All you have to do is leave me a comment telling me what your favorite thing about Spring is! 

Everyone is invited to enter. I'll ship internationally and within the U.S.


This giveaway is open until 5pm on Thursday, April 17th, 2014. 

This give away is now closed. 

Thank you to everyone who entered! Sorry if you missed it!

Hi Kristen! Wow, you have quite a stash. There are some cute things in there! My favorite part of Spring is seeing everything come to life after a cold & snowy winter! The brown grass starts turning green again. The flowers start to break through the just thawed ground. Soon, color will be visible everywhere. I wasn't sure it was going to happen this year. It seemed as though winter would never leave here. I just spied some daffodils blooming in my backyard today! Whee! Little tiny leaves are growing on some bushes. I didn't know if they would survive the brutal winter we had. They did!!!

Hello, sis of Vanessa!
Awww! What do I love about Spring? Hmmmm? I have always loved Spring because that is when I would always look for four-leaf clovers, and I would pretend to be a fairy and jump off my swing-set as a child with a fluttering colorful scarf with which to fly. Spring to me, has always been about the amazing greenery which grows at tremendous leaps and bounds! Seeing new baby birdies, bunnies, chicks, and the sounds of snow-melt in the streams. It is always a time for Spring cleaning and that feeling you get from getting rid of clutter which has accumulated over the winter. It is when I dust the cob-webs out of my mind and pursue the latest craft project...vintage fabric is my weakness!
thank you!

Hi Kristen! What a fun giveaway! ^_^
As for my favorite thing about Spring... I think it would have to be the way the air smells, once all the plants and trees have gotten their leaves back and started to bloom. The air here has smelled sooooo delicious lately... and it's smelled GREEN... a soft, yet vibrant green... it's amazing!
I hope you're enjoying your weekend!

XOXO

Hello Kristen, I am a reader of your sister's blog and she is sending everyone over here! I love embroidery but don't have the patience to do it myself,I wield paintbrushes for preference...My favorite things about spring---smelling the earth again, birds returning and singing their spring love-songs, my yard-birds starting to lay again and watching for the return of all the flowers! We still have snow around the place, but it's going going gone, really soon now! Happy spring to you and yours..Carroll

My favorite part of spring is the fluttering and constant business of the birds as they ready there nests for the imminent arrival of eggs. It reminds me of how i felt readying for my babies. Sigh...

My favorite part of spring is gardens and growing things! Especially here in the desert. Tucson is lovely, but being from Oregon I like it when there is a little more green!

My Favorite part about Spring is New Birth... the Baby Animals make their Appearances, the Flowers begin to Bloom and everything just seems to come Alive after a mostly dormant Winter... even here in the Desert. I always feel like Creating more when Spring Arrives so that I too can give birth to the Ideas I've been pondering on the Canvas of my Imagination.

What a Generous Giveaway... Happy Spring my Friend... Dawn... The Bohemian

By far my favorite parts of spring are cleansing thunder storms, and the intoxicating smell of Lilacs coming in through open windows. One of those smells no candle company will duplcate. Oh and warm weather :) always a plus.
