September Giveaway

I'm trying to remember when,
a long long time ago,
that I first saw Brenda Ryan's
beautiful creations.
I do remember that it was not that long after
I opened my shop in Geraldine,
and that it was in a magazine,
and I'm pretty sure
it was a picture of
Fair Rosamund:)
Since then I have stitched many many
of Brenda's designs...
needlecases and

This is Daisy :)
One of my most favourite cushions :)
The centre panel from
"A Measured Stitch".
Gorgeous little decoration,
using Cottage Garden Threads :)

From Jane Austen's quilt.

Another from ''Jane's'' quilt :)
...and one cute little cottage
(just a little bit unfinished yet:)
These are just a few,
there are a gazillion more pics on my 'puter,
but you can see what I mean,
her work is beautiful:)
And what prompted all this is a promise to myself,
that I must finish a couple of unfinished projects.
I have all the stitcheries for
Jane Austen's quilt
sitting neatly in a box
and I have decided  that I must finish the quilt
as it is far too exquisite to be tucked away
in lots of little pieces
inside a box!!
And I've also got to finish the little cottage series.
Made me think,
yeah -
here it comes:)
I have a spare pattern (or two :)
and I thought
time for a pattern and thread giveaway.
I haven't stitched this pattern myself, yet,
but don't worry,
I do have my own copy tucked away:)
So here's the deal
for my September giveaway -
one divine Brenda Ryan pattern,
five fabulous Cottage Garden Threads,
some gorgeous yummy pure French Linen,
and a bit of lace,
of course:)
Just leave a wee comment
or over on my facebook page,
whatever is easiest for you,
or you can even do both,
and then you will have a double chance to win:)
And yes,
all my giveaways are open to overseas friends as well:)
I'm off to sort out the fabrics for
''Jane's'' quilt.
See you later,

Can't wait to see your qui;t finished. I do so love Stitcheries and I wonder whose fault that is. Ideas are brimming with the lovely threads.

Love the Jane Austen designs! I've never done a stitchery of this kind before but i'd love to try :)

Wendy Rance said...

Love all the vintage that is around at the moment. The Jane Austin quilt is exquisite, wondering if I might have a go at it - so some inspiration of one of her patterns would be cool.

Karen said...

Brenda Ryan's designs and Cottage Garden Threads just made for each other. You're stitching is so beautifully done and what a fabulous giveaway! I would really, really love to win it.

Debbie Souness said...

Absolutely lovely. Love it all, especially the veregated threads.

Lynette said...

I love the cottage garden threads but only have a few so more and a lovely stitchery to use them would be great.

Lovely work on your Jane Austen quilt. My daughter in law would love it as she is a great Jane Austen fan. They have given my new granddaughter the 2nd name of Jane.
