A big thank you and a little giveaway

Stitchers are the kindest people, don't you think?  I have just received this beautiful chart as a RAK from Pull The Other Thread.



Such a lovely surprise!  After a rotten week at work this really made me smile.  And it will be a perfect match for the Treasure Hunt Bookshelf, my first HAED which I recently started.  Now how to resist ordering the threads and having two HAEDs on the go at once!

Thank you so much for your generous gift, you have made my day and I will think of you with every stitch I put into it (all 298,750 of them!)

I see that I have reached 100 followers!  I never thought when I started my blog last September that I would be made so welcome and feel such a part of a community of people who have never met.  It's lovely to be able to share projects with you all and especially to share your progress on your own projects.

I would like to have a little giveaway to celebrate.  This is just for current followers so no need to put anything on your blog - I'm quite happy with 100!  Please leave a comment below and tell me if you are the lucky winner, which chart you would like as a prize.  I will draw a winner at the end of the month.  I can't wait to see what you all choose!

EDITED: It doesn't have to be a HAED chart - I'm happy to send any chart!

That's it for now, hope you all have a lovely stitching weekend!

What a RAK!! This is a beautiful chart. I'm sure you'll have plenty of fun stitching this..
I'll pass on the giveaway as you know I found out Haed designs are not my cup of tea, with all that confetti :) Moreover, I received a wonderful RAK from you recently...

And I think yes why not.... another WOW!! How wonderful that you are having a little giveaway... as a celebration :) I would love to share with you the chart I would love to win...if I am the lucky one?

Oh dear!! making a right hash of this message... so sorry Justine. After thinking about it I deleted what I had put because naming just one is very difficult and how could I narrow it down? What with so many designers too? I am sure I dont know many of the available designs out there.... I know its a cop out but I cannot choose... and surprises are always nice. :)

Katie said...

Congrats girl. You deserve it. Go ahead and have two on the go. I try to limit myself to 2 on the go only haha. I'd hate to count up how many I actually have started.

I would love to be entered into your drawing. I wish everyone good luck.

Julie said...

Congratulations on reaching 100 followers!

Lynda said...

Congrats on reaching 100 followers!

I have to admit to having 5 HAED's on the go and also have managed to finish 2.

Not sure about the chart, probably one from Love Thy Thread.

Hope your weekend is better, I would love to enter your giveaway and any chart would be fine to win. hugs from Lynda

Congrats on 100 (and now 102, at time of writing)!

I would love to win as I've been eyeing off the World Traveller Bookshelf on HAED for so long now! These bookshelf designs are amazing :)

Congratulations on reaching 102 followers Justine. I think you should start as many HAED's any others as you want. After all, I have 165 started. (Yikes) I would love to be entered in your awesome giveaway, but boy did you make it hard. LOL I having been eyeing a couple for quite a while. Venice or St. Lucia by Heritage Crafts. If I am the lucky winner, you can make the final decision. LOL Thanks for letting me enter.

Really? You've only been blogging since last September? I feel like I have known you forever (in a good way!) Congratulations on your first 100 followers. I would love to be entered in your giveaway, I'll save naming a chart and see if I win...I'd be here all day trying to decide otherwise.

Annie said...

Congrats on your new chart and reaching over 100 followers! I would love to be entered in you very generous giveaway! I just recently saw and fell in love with Mini A Long Winter's Nap. Thanks, and happy stitching:)

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

Congratulations on reaching 100 followers so soon! It's great to be popular, like Shebafudge said, it seems like we've known for longer.

I recently received a lovely chart from you so please put Shebafudge's name in twice instead of mine. That will teach her for signing up for another SAL!!

Brigitte said...

Miamina said...

Congratulations on reaching the 100 mark!

That is a beautiful chart and one that I plan to buy very soon! Go one....start it! Just stitch on it every so often and don't worry about the finish, enjoy each element as it comes to life!

Congrats on all your followers! I'd love to be included in your draw. If I won I think I'd love to get either the blue Momente de Calme by Jardin Prive, or Family Blessings by Imaginating. :) I'm thoroughly enjoying my HAED at the moment, but either of these would be a fun stitch if I get bored! :)
