A Wintery Floss Give-away

I have been thinking about a give-away for the longest time and wondered what I could do, make, get...and then hit on the idea of sharing my good fortune. A couple of weeks ago I lucked into a a ton of floss'. Going through the different sized cards the floss is wound on and rewinding them onto uniform smaller cards I am finding that many of the larger cards have 2 , 3 and sometime 4 skeins of floss on them. Which means that I really have double or triple the amount that I thought I did. With this in mind I know I can not use all of this bounty.... so I have gone through and pulled about 90 of the small cards that are marked "JP" or "Bates" and the color number and made up a "Floss Give-Away."

If you would like to win this giant Floss Give-Away just leave a comment ON THIS ENTRY, only - I will close the give-away on Friday afternoon around 2:30 PST and do a random drawing from those comments. I will announce the winner on Monday 2/23. Anyone can enter so don't be bashful - there are lots of spring and summer colours. Remember you can't win if you don't enter!!

Last night was spent working on an exchange. I wanted to thank you all for the kind things you had to say about my finish - I went back and found that I usually have a finish this time of year - now I Wonder why that is??

The flicker last night was "Morituri" - 1965 starring Marlon Brandon and Yul Brynner. A very interesting WWII film - probably one of Yul Brynners best performances. A little dark and slow but worth a look.

Thanks for stopping by!!

Take care,
edgar

  15. Hi Edgar, I am new to your blog, but have hear about you through the stitching world. (all good mind you!!) lol.

    Love the way you write and will drop in to visit often.

    What a nice giveaway - but since I have a ton of fibers (and I work at a needlwork shop) you need not put my name in.

    Have a great day --- Roberta

  24. So nice of you to share the "booty". I would like to be included. We are about to teach 6 young girls how to cross stitch thru our EGA. This would be great for us to give out to them.
