I had to visit Miss Ellie yesterday and then my son & I stopped at 1/2 Price Books and then Applebee's so it was on the late side when I got home and I didn't have the energy to artistically arrange the giveaway. So....I'm going to fudge a bit.
There will be THREE giveaways, all shown here and drawn for on the same day, Monday, May 31st (Memorial Day). A good portion of my giveaway are items that I received from from Jane Smith's estate. You may remember I featured her in a Memorial Day post last year.
I've kept a few things but I believe her daughter wanted her supplies to go to someone who loves tatting. I'm honored to receive them but I also want to share the legacy. So to celebrate 250,000 visitors (mostly tatters I would assume)and Memorial Day and Tatting, here's what's up!
They are not grouped but I will separate them into three groups before I do the drawing. That means you won't know exactly what you're winning! The shuttles are plastic Boye shuttles and one has thread on it.
I may have even more but for now, these are going to three lucky winners!
This is thread from Jane's stash and I added a few of my own - all sizes 60, 70, and 80. I may add to this before next Monday if I have time to go through my stash. I purposely photographed it this way so you wouldn't know exactly what colors are there!
Now, from a lucky visit to a second hand store, I got this box of vintage threads. I used one of the balls to hand dye thread. While it does break if I snap it, I tried tatting with it and it was fine closing rings.
One row is size 70 and the other row is size 80. Each winner will get one ball of each. I'll keep the rest.
And then again from Jane's stash, there are nine vintage hankies, plain, with hemstitching so they are easy to attach edgings too. Each winner will get three, one colored and two white. Somebody might get more than one colored but everyone will get at least one.
So, each of the three winners will receive something from each of the photos above and maybe more if I dig up some time and energy.
Please enter only once by leaving a comment on this post only. I will not respond to comments on the blog but I can respond privately. That's only because they are NUMBERED now and I don't want to mess up the sequence.
On Monday, May 31st, in the morning, I will use a random number generator to pick three numbers. Remember, enter only once; make sure I can contact you either through your profile or information you leave; and have fun dreaming!
