It's Turning into a Very Stitchy Week!

Well, look at that! I guess it's all about embroidery this week. How lovely.

And this time I have a giveaway, so that's happy!

I've decided to stop carrying Sublime Stitching patterns, (which is sad) but it's only because they're available as downloadable pdfs now, but only on the Sublime Stitching site (not here, which would be awesome), not because they aren't fabulous in every way.

So, as a little "farewell, it's been so nice to have you" sort of thing, I thought I'd give a few of the remaining patterns away. So, for today we've got:


Kurt Halsey

Krazy Kitchen

Scooter Babe
Dutch Russian
I'll choose two lucky winners, who will each get two (randomly chosen) patterns seen above (unless, of course, you provide a particularly convincing argument for why I should choose more specifically for you). Ok, so here's how two of these lovelies can be yours:
  • Sometime today before 10 pm leave a comment with a link to your favorite stitchy resource.
  • Tweet (or retweet) about the giveaway—with the all important @magpiepatterns mention so that I know to include you in the drawing.
  • Share something from the Magpie Patterns Facebook page with your FB friends (and then send me a note so I know that you did). 
  • OR become a follower of the blog (and send me a note or something so I know).
After all the entries are in I'll randomly choose a winner using Rae's toddler method and then contact that person by email, twitter, or Facebook (so be sure to include a method of contact) to get shipping digits.

Happy stitching!

actually, i love all of them! my favorite resource is http://urbanthreads.com/ , they have machine AND hand embroidery designs of all sizes and they're a little off-beat. their tutorial section is awesome!

I love Sublime Stitching, and it is actually my favorite resource! I rediscovered stitching just recently, and started with several of their patterns; Krazy Kitchen and Kurt Halsey being two of them! (But I don't have the other 2!) I also just started following your blog.
Have a great day!

I get a lot of inspiration from mrxstitch.com and the phat quarter flicker group.

Leah said...

I love Sublime Stitching too! I've already got a lot of their patterns (all patiently waiting to be stitched), so I guess that makes them my favorite resource.

I also just started following you. :)

Helen said...

I just found you and am following! I've only made up my own patterns but want to do more. I would love to have a pattern to follow for once. ;) Now for a deep read on your blog... :)! Thanks!

I don't facebook or twitter, but I do check in with your blog daily (during naptime for my little ones- we all need a little inspiration in the afternoon:))... I love the Russian dolls most, but, if I were to win, I would take any!

I like feeling stitchy. I lalalalove the scooter. I have a thing about making things with the Echino Scooters fabric and this would look great on some t-shirts for my littlest. Love your blog too!
