March winner/April giveaway

The random number generator picked 3 today so Laurie in Maine won the blackwork book. Congratulations, Laurie!

New addition! Lelia over on Stitches of Life has very kindly sent me a chart put out by Hillside Samplings for an acorn design to replace the missing button. This one-page sheet also includes a lovely pine tree and pine cone (I believe to replace buttons in other patterns). I've printed this out and will send it along with the rest of the materials to the winner.

Also, I will mail this giveaway anywhere, so don't hesitate to enter if you're outside of the U.S. Please do make sure to include contact information.

Here is the giveaway for April. "A is for Acorn" from Hillside samplings. The package will contain the slightly bent chart, Sampler Threads from the Gentle Art (the three specified in the pattern), and linen. I could not find the acorn button (I don't think I ever had it).

Please comment on this post to be entered. I will draw the winner on Tax Day, April 15. Please remember to include your e-mail address or a link to a blog profile that includes a link to your e-mail so I can contact you. Thanks!

Oh, wow!! Laurie in Maine is me :)
yay!! I've never tried blackwork although I picked up a book from our library today called European Embroidery and it has a section with a couple of designs I was considering once I finish up the hardanger block I'm working on.

Please don't include me in your giveaway -- I already have the pattern & ingredients. I did 'spread the word' on a blog post -- and, if you don't have the button, I have a sheet from Hillside Samplings that has designs for 3 of their samplers (in place of the buttons). I've scanned & sent to you.

OH WOW Marjorie. Acorns are my most favorite things. But I must warn you even though I am technically American, well I was born and raised in NJ, I have lived in the U.K. for the majority of my life so if I was lucky enough to win this giveaway you would have to mail it to England. If you don't want to enter me that is fine and I really understand. Lots of Love Patti xxxx
