Hmmm, how about a Giveaway?

As I write this, it's Saturday afternoon. It's lovely and foggy outside (no snow at least!) which makes me feel very cozy being inside. I'm still not feeling great, maybe partly feeling a bit stressed about the work trip and work coming up. *sigh*

So, very little stitching and I've given up the idea of finishing Family Sampler this weekend. "That's OK", my inner fairy god-mother tells me, "stitching should be fun and not an obligation! This isn't for an exchange so no deadline! Here, have a chocolate, dear, you look much too pale!"

Love my inner fairy god-mother.

As I was lazing around immobilized, I browsed through my stash. Then I thought wouldn't it be fun to do a small give-away. It's Inauguration day on Tuesday, and coincidentally my blog will be 4 months old . It's an excuse for a wee celebration, isn't it? And this chart give-away is very appropriate for the occasion.

While I have had this chart for a number of years, I have never stitched it and now it seems the right time to pass it on. If you would like a chance at this giveaway, please leave a comment on this post and I will do a draw on Jan 31. Please ensure I can find you by your blog or please leave your email contact.

Thanks for the comments about the audio books, by the way. I will take your suggestions to the library with me!

H'okay - I think my job here is done now! Have a good week!

It is really a shame that you never where able to stitch that chart, but if it needs a good home I'd love to have it.

Chocolate?? Can I borrow your inner fairy godmother? Mine just reminds me to take my vitamin. :-(

Please enter me in your drawing for the chart! I love how you tied it in with the inauguration!

I love your inner fairy god-mother too :) She's absolutely right, stitching should be fun and chocolate is vital. I enjoyd stitching this week SO much, when I had no obligations.
