Beading, Cross Stitch, Gifts TO BE FIXED, scissor fobs, threads

HUGE mail day coming up! and a Giveaway

I don’t know what has been wrong with me this last year – I’ve been exceptionally terrible at fulfilling promises, and have a HUGE pile of items and gifts that need to be posted to people – I have a massive desire to get rid of the backlog, as it is cluttering my brain (not to mention my bedroom!), so I’ve been making a large effort today to get a few things parcelled up ready to go into the mail next weekend.

Along with that, I’ve realised that I will never stitch with the following threads – I apologise to the kind-hearted soul who sent me these as part of a “summer” theme exchange years ago, but I’m just not a pastels girl, and I just can’t see me using them.  To that end, I have a card already filled out, and the threads are sitting in an envelope, ready to join the rest of the pile to be posted out next Saturday morning (the only chance I can usually get to the Post Office) – and I’m offering a prize draw for these to go to a more fitting home.

Seaside Treasures threads up for grabs

Soooooo, if anyone would like these threads, please leave a comment on this post only stating that you would like to go into the draw (if there is more than one comment – if only one person enters then they get the threads automatically).  The closing date is this coming Thursday 1 October – that way I can draw the name out of the proverbial hat on Friday morning and it will give me chance to chase a mailing address on the Friday if I don’t already have it, so I can meet my mailing deadline.

As for the other parcels, there are a number of threads and scissor fobs heading around the world on Saturday … here is the only one I can show you so far, as I’m pretty sure Karen doesn’t read my blog.  I just had to choose a dragonfly charm for her fob in honour of her old shop name of Dragonfly Dreams – I made this one this morning just in time to get in the mail today, along with the Lizzie*Kate pinkeep from a few blog posts ago 😀

This one has gone to Karen at The Stitching Post

I’ll post piccies of the others that have been posted out once I hear that they’ve been received … I don’t want to spoil the surprise in the meantime.

  1. Am so sorry to hear you can’t find a use for those threads – they are just lovely! They remind me of the beach so much, for which I am homesick! So please if you would, enter me into your contest to win them.

    Thank you for your generosity!

  2. Ann – those are such lovely threads. I promise you they would have a good home with me. Please toss my name in that hat!!!
    Love your scissor fobs. They are so very beautifully done. Lucky Karen.

  3. Good for you, passing them along. Very brave. I have to admit that I’ve got a few charts that were given to me that I know for sure I will never, ever stitch but I’ve been very reluctant to pass them along to better homes for fear of offending anyone. Perhaps I’ll be able to be braver now. Don’t enter me in your giveaway, though, as pastels are not my thing either. Happy stitching to the happy winner, though!!

  4. I could defintely find a home for those threads, so please pop my name in the hat. Thanks for the opportunity.

  5. Oooh lovely! They would make such a nice change from my DMC, Semco and Anchor stash. Please throw my name into the hat too, please Anne!

  6. I love pastels, but I don’t need to get addicted to another fibre maker, so you don’t need to include me in the drawing, but I just needed to comment because I think the scissor fob is adorable.

  7. I’m glad the lucet links were helpful–I enjoy it a lot (kind of a mindless meditative pastime). I love the pastel threads, please enter me into your draw. Thanks!
