GIVEAWAY TIME! Yay! Yipee!

Okay, looking at the title of this post I think it is pretty obvious that I am extremely excited by this Giveaway - any excuse to have some fun!  But oh no whats this?  I was looking through my stash and came to the realisation that I didn't have anything suitable to giveaway!  Apparently I love Samplers - Christmas and Spring - but no Autumn or Halloween themed anything! 
What to do, what to do ... yip, I see my followers have now reached 52 - so where's my 50 followers giveaway?  You're all waiting ... panic starts to set in .. a very dim light goes on in my head ..what is it - make something - kit something ... DO SOMETHING!
So, without further a do - here is my 'Something' -


(You will all have to excuse the night shot, I am a busy Mum and the kids rule my daytime.)

Sarah Lowell by La-D-Da - I will provide the linen and silks to go with this chart, so there is no excuse not to do it!  The chart says to use 'Straw' linen but when I stitched it I wanted it to look exactly the same as in the picture so I used 'Sheeps Straw' linen - I have both available and will let you choose which one you want.
If you have this years Halloween Issue of Just Cross Stitch you will recognise the ornament in the photo - Boo To You by Linda Ebright of Lizzie Kate - this I will also include.

So what do you think?  If you want to Enter my Giveaway - you know what to do.
If you want a second chance to win - post my Giveaway on your Blog.
Entry for this Giveaway will close 15 September, shortly after I will draw a name and announce a winner!

You know I all love ya!
Amanda

  4. Me too! I have no idea of the colour difference between Straw and Sheep's Straw so that will be your decision!

    Are you including the actual Hallowe'en ornie stitched by you (not the mag) as I love it! I'm not so good at finishing so I'm collecting beautifully finished ornies by everyone else LOL.

    Congrats on the 50 (55) followers too.
