Sometimes when we get so engrossed with a certain hobby, we tend to eat, live and breath it... which can often lead to getting burnt out and then we move on to something new.
Well, that just so happened to a dear friend of mine. She used to be a stitcher... but now knitting/crocheting is her craft of choice. Last week she gathered up all of her cross stitch stash and brought it to me. While sorting through, I came across a couple of patterns that I would like to pass on to a fellow stitcher out there in blog land.
The first item is a pattern by Living Faith, Hope, & Grace called October - "The Vine and the Branches". The majority of this is already stitched (on a 32 ct. linen) - with the exception of the bunches of grapes, a few other stitches here and there, and the backstitching. The design area is quite large - 11"x16.5" - with a substantial border of fabric that leaves more than enough for framing.
|It was hard to get a photo that captured the richness of the colours used.|

|All the floss is included to finish this project... including this gorgeous thread called Amethyst by Wildflowers by Caron.|
It would be so wonderful to find someone who would love to finish stitching this piece for themselves, and give it a new home.
The second item is a Bucilla kit called O' Holy Night. This kit has been opened, but never started... so everything is in tact and ready to go.
I will leave this give-away open until September 1st, 2012, and if more than one person is interested in taking both of these items, I will do a drawing the morning of that day. If you are a follower of our blog (new or old), please leave a comment, and be sure to leave a way for me to contact you. Thanks!
Enjoy your last week of August and Happy Stitching!
