Let's Have a GIVEAWAY!

I'm stitching on something now...it's for an exchange!  I've never done an exchange before!  I would not have guessed how many fun and new things can still happen in your life....(when you're not 20 anymore!!)  I'm working hard on that and I hope that my partner will be pleased with what I send!  I'm trying to get my stitching done quickly, and it's coming great!  School starts on Monday!!!! I am in my final 2 semesters of my masters degree in music!  I'm so ready to be finished!  In May, I will post a photo with cap & gown!!!
NOW....to the giveaway idea!

You may or may not remember that I love Prairie Schooler!  I have been collecting a complete set of those patterns!  I only have a couple left and I'll have it!!!  This is just a personal goal--I'm not interested in selling, trading, etc.......I just want to selfishly sit back and admire my 3 notebooks of loveliness!!!!!  WELL, in my frantic quest to get the last few charts, I had been looking for Garden Beasties #54.  It's got cute little summery critters and even has a bee!!  (my fave)    I got on Ebay...found it, and made a bid like I had done so many times.  I knew I'd probably lose as I always had.  THEN, I saw it with another Ebay seller as a Buy-it-Now and it was expensive, but not as high as usual!  SO, like a big dummy, I happily did the Buy-it-Now! Then, a few days later, I checked, and no one bid against me on the bidding one!  SO I GOT TWO!!

Why did I tell you this long story???  Because I'm going to offer the other Garden Beasties as my next giveaway!  I hope that you will enjoy getting a chance on this and that the winner will love having it because it is a little bit hard to find!  The rules are pretty simple...be a follower and sign on this post! That's it!  I will draw the winner on Tuesday, September 2, the day everyone goes back to work after the Labor Day holiday.  I will put a few little extras with the chart so it will be a fun package to receive!  Please spread the word--I'm always looking for new followers/friends!


I'm probably going to start stitching on the little bee (top left) for myself!  Can't wait to see it finished.  These will make such cute little individual ornaments!
Thank you for stopping by...Please come again soon!

Congratulations on your ebay wins! How many more do you need to collect to have a complete set?

I think we have all bought duplicates at some time or other. I am a great bee lover too, thank you for a lovely giveaway.

I have some but not this one and would love to be entered into the draw please.
Happy stitching,

I know how you feel! I had bought a chart on Ebay and later discovered that I did have it in a magazine. And then I stitched part of it for an Harvest exchange (ahead of time) only to learn my exchange partner likes a totally different style.
Very generous giveaway. I love bees and PSS. How FUN!!! I would love to be entered for your lovely giveaway.
love Annette

oh how cool! I love Prairie Schooler. I hope when I start my job 2nd week of September even though it's full time, I will be able to do some giveaways again on feathers in the nest. I'm a follower!

Thanks for so much enouragement. This summer has been crazy.

Hi Frances,
I am a new follower and so glad to find your blog! I also love Prairie Schooler! I don't have that chart and would love a chance to own it.
Thank you for the chance! Phyllis

Do you already have all the Christmas Santa cards too? I have those and a few charts but not a collector. I do collect Blackbired Designs so I know how fun it is to finally get a whole bunch of them!
