Are you ready for my giveaway!

What a work day yesterday---I am going to invent an air freshener of "niceness" to spray around the customers. The past few days have been very unpleasant. But moving on......
When I am at my computer desk...I see many things.....some books on a shelf, a few GOS file and sometimes a mess of papers. But if I look up...up to the top of the unit...
These Kachinas are watching me. They are part of a collection my mom started back in the 80's I believe. I have 8 more adding to theses 7. If you look closely ----the front left---there is one that is 2 inches tall...and fully carved. Amazing. I had asked her for one and she sent them all!

Okay on to my give away.
     1--must be a follower
     2--leave a comment on this post
     3--tell me you favorite color/colors
     4--what is your favorite type of cross stitch (samplers, ornies, know)
I will include something stitched by me, a bit of the Southwest and of course the prize is a surprise based on what the winner likes.
Drawing will be on Sunday June 26th in the evening.

Would you like to see my completed La D Da?  Really? Let's meet at my other place and let me know what you think.
Have a wonderful day and I am always happy to have you visit.

Hi Gracie - sorry the customers haven't been nice. Hope this changes soon!

I would love to be entered in your giveaway! I like blues and dark reds. As for my fav type of cross stitch -- anything but samplers. I like ornies, holidays and simple little pics.

I'll post this on my sidebar. Hope today is a great day for you!

Hi Gracie. I'm a follower. (Although I had to re-follow today. I've been having problems with my account unfollowing blogs for no reason at all. Very weird.)

My favourite colours are purple, blue and silver/gray. I love to stitch figures (like Teresa Wentzler and Mirabilia designs), and I also love Halloween designs and Christmas ornaments.

And thank yo for hosting a giveaway! :D

I'm a new follower! I came from the Reflections in the Pond blog.

I love all colours but monochrome is good too! I love samplers and dragons for my own stitching but I also love the American designs which you can't find here in the UK.

Deborah said...

I follow both of your blogs. My favorite colors are pinks and reds. Samplers are good for me.

Jules said...

Wow! What an amazing collection of kachinas. It's amazing the things we grow to love and want to collect.

I am a follower. My fave color is blue (any and all shades). I don't really have a favorite type of cross-stitch. Pretty much whatever catches my eye is what I stitch. I do like picking up kits from National Parks though.

natalyK said...

I love following your blogs and look forward to catching up on what is happening in your world. I love anything blue. My favorite stitchy projects are needlework smalls, pincushion, fobs, needlebooks etc...

Thanks for the opportunity at a surprise giveaway

Hi Gracie...I follow both blogs and I am sorry your customers have been extra nice to them as they may not be as fortunate as you! I have days with crabby clients and I find if I am extra nice they lighten up...good luck! I love reds and samplers, though I have a soft spot for Christmas & Halloween stitching ( and we don't even celebrate Halloween here!).

Wendy @ Ravenwood Whimzies said...

Ooh..what a nice giveaway! I'm already a follower and I'd love to be entered. My favorite colors are sage green and black. I have a new interest in samplers lately and hope to collect more soon.

I'm sorry you have had customer troubles...I suppose everyone has a bad day now and then...just too bad they had to take it out on you.

Hugs and thanks for the great giveaway!

Judy said...

Hi, I just became a follower. Love pastel colors and needlework smalls and ornies.
Looking forward to keeping up with your blog.

SoCal Debbie said...

Hi Gracie, I'm a follower of both your blogs. My favorite colors are pink and red. I like to stitch pictures of birds and flowers. Thank you for having this fun giveaway!

Betty (Elizabeth) said...

Hi Gracie, I am new to your blog but I see we have alot in common.... hankies, gloves, beads, buttons, linen and chocolate! Not necessarily in that order ;) I love fall colours but lately have been stitching everything red. My favs are stitching smalls. Thanks for sharing your stitching!

geeky Heather said...

I also follow both of your blogs! My favorite colors are blues and purples. I like to stitch pieces with lots of specialty stitches rather than plain XS, and I LOVE Christmas!! I have a great number of ornies on my tree (and in my to-do pile)!

Terri said...

I am a follower of both your blogs and I love reading them! You do beautiful work!

I love all colors, but pinks and greens are my favorites at the moment. I love to stitch almost anything, but lean towards larger, more detailed floral projects with specialty stitches. And scissor fobs are great, too!

Love the Kachinas!

CalamityJr said...

Hi, Gracie. This rather open-ended giveaway is fun! Hope life is better for you this new week. I love all blues, greens and yellows; enjoy bunnies and birds, dogs and dragonflies, and my favorite stitching includes words or some sort of inspiration. I only have one scissor fob, so that's a possibility, as well as pin keeps and... well, anything stitched by you!

Shari said...

I believe I am a follower, but if I am not, I will be after I post this comment!!! I know I have your blog saved in my blog list on my blog!!!!
Let's see...favorite colors are sage green & lavender..
I love so many types of stitching...samplers, ornies, large, small!!!! I honestly do not know of a very favorite type!

Ellen said...

Sure would love to be in your giveaway, thank you for the chance Gracie.

I love Red and autumn colors. Autumn is my favorite season with lots of colors. I love samplers, four seasons and French designs. Also stitch lots of smalls!


Patty C. said...

Hey Gracie - Oh I am so behind - I am glad I didn't miss all of the fun.
Count me in -
My house is painted hunter green and white & I love burgundy & pinks & all of the colors of the lovely fabrics we stitch on - I adore linen/alphabets/florals/ & birds

Take Care ;)

Teresa S. said...

I am already a follower of both blogs! Faithfully read, but don't always have time to comment. My favorite color is pink. My favorite stitching right now is samplers and pincushions. Really loved your dragonflies!

pam said...


I follow already, love blues and purples and I love me some smalls. It is a sickness really. I am sure. Oh well, there are worse addicitions.

lanybleu said...

I am a follower and would love to be included in your giveaway.
My fav colours are lilacs and purples and I love Samplers.

Carolyn said...

I am a new follower (soooo glad I found your blog!) and was surprised when I read about you. You need to visit my blog. We both love the same things. It's so weird! Anyway, my favorite color is red, followed very closely by pink. I ADORE samplers, which are my favorite to stitch and the next favorite is Christmas ornaments. Thank you for the chance in your giveaway. :) Now to catch up on your blog! :)
