Be Ye Thankful give-away, enter now!

It's almost that time of year here in the states......our traditional Thanksgiving on the 4th Thursday in November. The date this year is the 26th and I am having my usual Be Ye Thankful give-away to celebrate. Since the original day was a celebration of the harvest....I can say this is a harvest of friends! And I am very thankful for each and every one of you.

I thought I would put together a nice selection of goodies to surprise one lucky winner. So you will have to wait and see what it is! These surprises usually have a value of $50 or more as I like to include a nice selection. You can suggest what you would like...floss, fabric (linen or aida), charts, motto kit, etc.....but first you have to tell me what you are thankful for!
 I am always thankful for many wonderful family that surrounds me.....the blessings I have received through this business...and the friends and followers I have met which is the best part of this business. From all over the world I have met the nicest group of people that I enjoy chatting and sharing with.

The give-away will be on the 22nd of November as I will be very busy on the holiday.

Just how many floss colors do I have? Want a good laugh?

I had a gal email me and ask how many floss colors I have. I told her I have small sets of 3-4 colors (a couple dozen), boxed sets of 12 and 28, large sets of 46 and 80 colors and lots of singles.
So she asks how many colors(skeins) do you have if I buy one of each? I started counting......and counting......

And tired of counting and told her I had roughly 438 singles from all the collections and sets. How many yards is that? 8,760 and I think it would keep you busy for quite a while.
She asks if I have any other colors..........ok I do have a few drawers of singles that I had from my early years. I put them into 50 skein sets and put them on sale. That's another 1,000 yards. She waited a few minutes and sent another email. How much of a discount can you give me if I buy one of each? These are regular price of $2 and I run a 15% off sale on ebay. So I told her $1.50 per skein (25% off), you pay the postage, and I will GIVE you one of the 50 skein sets (or you can have a yard of 32ct linen or some hand dyed aida). Total before postage is $657. Saves you $100 on the 50 skein set. She said I'll take it and you should offer this to other stitchers. Well I know a lot of stitchers who buy a lot of floss......and this is a lot of floss!
So......if anyone else is interested in this special just let me know. I can calculate postage for you. Believe won't run out of floss for a very long time!!! And just to show how much of a discount this is...I am about 1/4 the price of other companies who sell 5 yards for $2-2.50. This amount would be over $4,000.00. Such a deal! lol

Thanks for stopping by.

Primitive Flowers Floss Set

Busy putting more floss sets together today.....lets call this one a Primitive Flowers set. 7 skeins, 140 yards of beautiful flower colors. I thought these were nice antique/primitive looking colors. Very nice shading in all but the Buttercup which is almost a solid yellow.

I will be dyeing floss for a couple more weeks, them more linen and then give the dye pot a rest for a while....and me! lol
I want to get back to designs and stitching. Other than stitching custom mottoes for customers this year, over a dozen of them, I have not stitched anything on linen. I need to have a retreat just to get some rest! Maybe after I move to the next house I will do just that.

Thanks for stopping by and seeing the new colors.

A few new Christmas and Primitive floss colors

I carded some new floss this week.....I don't think there is a week that goes by that I don't do floss around always looks like a cotton factory exploded!
I did a new smaller Christmas colors set....the essentials.....Christmas Red, Old Fashioned Red, Olde Gold, Holly & Ivy, Dark Pine Boughs and Deep Forest Pine.
Then I added the Primitive color Primitive Taupe Brown.
And a Darkest Midnight Blue and Mixed Berry Patch. These will all be available in my ebay store tomorrow. I will be selling the Christmas as a set (and will give one away soon) and listing a lot of singles from the large Primitive Collection. I think there will be 18 singles for sale from this set. I had several requests to sell singles so I thought I would start with these.

Be sure you have signed up for all of the give-aways I have going right now. Someone always wins and it could be you!
Thanks for stopping by.
