STITCHING and CRAFTING "Surprise" Giveaway

I will post the winner tomorrow,
Tuesday, MAY 1st.  Thanks to all for "playing".  Enjoyed reading about all the fun things you're up to!

I'm going to give away some Stitching and Crafting goodies, but it will be a surprise package.   Possibilities are books, including recipe books, papercraft supplies, sewing notions, other craft supplies  - who knows what it will be.                                                          TO ENTER: please leave a comment here telling me if you went shopping for Stitching and Crafting supplies, what are TWO things (please just tell me TWO) that you would want to purchase.  DEADLINE to Enter is: APRIL 30th.


  1. Oh, oh, now you know I need these supplies CJ.
    So, I would buy some better glue as what I use now I do not think is very good at all and chicken embellishments of any kind as they sure are hard to find.
    Thanks CJ, nice of you to do the give a way, can not wait to see what the winner will get.

  2. WOW !! Great idea CJ !!! Oh...only 2.... I would have to say...Faber Castell Pitt Artist Pens (MORE OF THEM) lol and Beading Books !!

  3. Who wouldn't love a suprise from you CJ??? I know I would! If I were to go shopping tomorrow I would most likely buy Fat Quarters (I dont quilt but the fabric comes in so handy for so many other things) and Ribbon. Those would be the first 2 things...but I sure could come up with a LONG list of others for you too! Thanks for the chance to win your suprise!

  4. OH may I enter too, please?? I would buy fabric and craftbooks. I can't find any good English craftbooks here unfortunately...they are ALL in Thai lol.And I can't read;)

    Many hugs from Marian/dutchy on MJF

  5. I'd love to enter! I think I would really love to buy a quilting frame-I do a lot of hand quilting and it seems like it would be a lot easier on a frame. Then, I think I would buy the "London Market" line of scrapbooking papers, stickers, etc. and another "Smash" book and put together a record of all my favorite things (kind of like an inspiration book-scrapbook style!)

    Sending hugs from Farm Girl "SpyChicken"

  6. Wow - it's hard to pick just 2! I guess I'd have to say yarn and scrapbooking embellishments!

  7. If I drove to the craft store today, I'd buy embroidery flosses in a variety of colors for my knitting basket Christmas ornaments, and I would buy orange #10 cotton thread....just two items that are on my "wish list" right now.

  8. Oh my so many to choose from but if I could only choose two...It would be yarn and fabric....thank you for the chance at the the blog too.

    So excited about your giveaway. Can't wait to see what you came up with.
