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 and I am having my usual Be Ye Thankful give-away to celebrate. Since the original day was a celebration of the harvest....I like to celebrate a harvest of friends! And I am very thankful for each and every one of you.

I usually have one winner drawn for this give-away but since I have so many new followers, I will draw TWO names! Two lucky winners to receive a gift.

I thought I would put together a nice selection of goodies to surprise the lucky winners. 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, etc.....BUT first you have to tell me what you are thankful for!
 
 I am always thankful for many things....my wonderful family that surrounds me.....the blessings I have received...and the friends and followers I have met and that 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 21st of November.
Rules: You must be a follower at the right. Click to follow by Faithful Friends.
You must post a comment here. Post on your blog, Flosstube, Twitter, Instagram, stitching group or facebook and get 100 more entries. We want lots of stitchers to have a chance to win a gift. You must check back to see if you are a winner as I don't have time to hunt you down! lol

Thanks for stopping by...and good luck to all who enter. Let the comments begin. So tell me what you are thankful for. I am thankful for.............

Remember......All you can take with you is that which you've given away.
          Nancy

P.S.
If you have the time you should read the comments. I am honored that my friends share their personal stories with us....and you will see why this is my favorite give-away!

  2. I’m so Thankful to be alive and in good health. When I was young, 13 I was hit by a car going 50mph. And not expected to live but did after a few years of Drs appts. I live a fairly normal life a few head injury problems. But I’m a survivor. Thanks for the giveaway.

  4. The hunker down season is in full swing here as I watch the snow coming down through the windows. Winter is stitch time and the summer was way too busy so I'm looking forward to a slower pace and quiet time. Of course that won't really happen until after Christmas but I can look forward to it. I hope you get to experience some slow down time Nancy as you are always going full bore. Hugs and smiles.

  30. I am thankful for health and family, and friends who are a bit of both; sisters from the stitching community in the past forty-odd years who have helped me learn the craft, celebrated my joys and given solace in my sorrows, some of the most caring and generous people God ever put on this Earth. And that generosity is not limited to my circle, as it infuses the spirits of both you, Nancy, in your generosity, and the members of various stitching groups I have have had the privilege to join online. I think the old term for what that encompasses is "salt of the Earth". Happy Thanksgiving.

Without Him I would not have made it this far.
