April Giveaway

Are we still doing this? I'm just kidding. I want there to be 12 winners, and, let's face it, the only way that's going to happen is if we do it once a month. So here we are celebrating five years and eight months of Stitch Bitchery.

I'm so sorry that I didn't have time to make something special for you, but I spent too much time gallivanting around the country. And this month is ending soon.

So I sacrificed myself yesterday and had a good wander around Joanns. I made sure I went into a complete daze. Good thing too, because I found myself standing in the clearance aisle and this trim just leapt out at me. It seemed so "Blackbird" to me. And since they are the bloggers of the moment, I had to build a prize around the trim. I went back to the fat quarters and found the appropriate fabric. Pearlized pins and some white 32 count linen for you to tea or coffee dye round out this months prize.

To win, stitch the Blackbird sampler (I must still be in that fog--I forgot who I was for a minute) leave a comment on this post only. I'll draw it on my parents' anniversary and nephews 8th birthday, April 30. It will really be a banner day.

I was hoping to add a bitch-stitched item to my collection, but bitch-shopped will do. :) The Blackbird design has been printed, but I know I won't be stitching it in time to enter their contest...
