A finish, a favor and a celebration giveaway!! (or two)

The finish. Actually I have had two finishes in the past two weeks but I can only show one right now. The second hasn't reached it's new home yet. And I have two almost finished that will be done by the next post and those I can show you then. My needles are making up for lost time.
The stitching that was shown in my last post was NOT stitched by me. That was the exchange I received from Melissa. I'm sorry if a number of you misread my posting or I wasn't clear. Melissa stitched that piece and beautifully too. Now the one pictured above IS the one I stitched for the exchange. This is Summer from the Lizzie Kate Banner series. My partner was Laura RS and she said she liked it. I think it turned out darling. I really need to get the rest of this series and do them all!

The favor.
And this is a really big favor to me. I hope that if you are a follower here on my blog and are also on face book that you can spare a minute or two to a fellow stitcher. If you aren't on face book than skip this. If you are please read on. You don't need to friend me on face book but I would ask that you "Like" the following page: 14k-9, Designers of Quality Gold & Silver Dog Breed & Designer Jewelry (Click on the name and click on Like) You can always block their posts or delete them later. Then go to Rory's photo and click Like under his photo. (Click HERE to go directly to the photo) They are holding a photo contest and the winning prize is something I would love to win. I could never afford to buy their jewelery and would love something to celebrate Rory's Championship. Oh, here is the photo to look for if you don't follow the above link.
Speaking of celebrations. How about a giveaway? Or two. Or three. That's right three in total.

Giveaway one is in celebration of my birthday. I was so busy in June that I never had the chance to celebrate with you all so it is a belated Birthday present from me. A surprise stash giveaway. At least four patterns. Some fabric. Some overdyed floss and a few other goodies. Let's just leave it at that because who knows what I'll put in the pile.

Giveaway two. I want to share my happiness of achieving Rory's Championship, a long held dream, with you all. The photo at the head of this post is the official New Champion photo from the show! What better way to share that special moment with you all than with a giveaway. A 30 dollar gift certificate to one of my favorite ONS, Down Sunshine Lane.

And last but not least, Giveaway three. This will also be a 30 dollar gift certificate. But the winner will be taken from the list of those face book users who go and vote for Rory's photo in the contest. This will be one way for me to say "Thank you" and, oh okay, it's a bribe. No really I am thankful to all those who continue to leave me comments here and on face book. So that you get credit make sure you mention that you voted on Rory's face book photo in your comment here.

To sum it up.
Giveaway One: Happy birthday from me surprise stash package.
Giveaway Two: Celebrating Champion Rory is a 30 gift certificate to Down Sunshine Lane
Giveaway Three: Thank you for voting for Rory's photo is a 30 gift certificate also to Down Sunshine Lane.

Rules for the giveaways? Only that you leave a comment as to which giveaway you want to be entered in. And yes you can enter all three. (But make sure you tell me you voted if you enter giveaway three.) Just leave a separate comment for each giveaway. And the most important rule of all is that I can find your email address to notify you.

I will announce the winners of all three giveaways on August 1st. The deadline to leave a comment will be July 30th. Rory will draw the winner on the 31st.

Good luck.And thank you to all you commented to my previous post. Your comments mean so much to me. And just saying Thank you doesn't seem like enough. But I'll start tearing up and won't be able to type if I continue. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Until next time.........
Love and stitches
Kathy
and licks from Champion Rory too

PS. To those who are already on Facebook and have voted/liked Rory's photo for the contest please leave a comment so I can include you in the Thank You giveaway.

I went and liked the Jewelry FB page and Rory's photo. (I noticed the business is from Littleton! I lived there 4 years before moving to the mountains.)

I also posted about this contest for Rory on my facebook page. I hope it will bring you some more votes.

Good luck Rory!

Blessings, Jessica

I'm in for all three and of course I voted for Rory, you really didn't need to bribe me - he's such a sweetie!

Akila said...

Please do put my name in for the first two giveaways. Would love to go in for the third but for some reason am unable to "Like" the site :(

Debby said...

Kathy,
I'm so excited for Rory's win!!! And for you for perservering; I'm also glad you've got some stitching time back for a while. Congratulations.

I went to the Facebook page and clicked on "like" (I have to, their in my metro area!!!). I went to Rory's photo, but there was no "like" button so I couldn't like him too.

I think all 3 of your giveaways are so generous and fun that I would love any one of them. I'll let you chose!!

Debby said...

Kathy,
I found the like button to vote on Rory's photo - that's done! I'll share with a few people that I might know will vote for him as well. Such a cute puppy - I just to pet him and scratch behind his ears!!
