Fall into Winter Giveaway

Click now for JiffNotes

Would you like to win some Fall and Winter stitching goodies??
Included in the package are two stumpwork kits for a scissors protector and thimble nest, Permin 28-ct. linen, various Fall-colored threads to try (linen, tweed, bamboo...!), Mill Hill buttons, Just Cross Stitch Nov/Dec (I think!) 2010, 3 skeins Dinky Dyes "Bush Christmas" silk floss, and some Madeira metallic to try out.

So how do you enter? Simple; you get one chance each if you...
  • Leave a comment on this post by November 11th at 11:59pm, EST. Tell me your favorite Fall dish (or even better...recipe). No need to be a follower, because you will get an extra chance if you happen to...
  • Be a follower!
  • Post about this contest on your blog. Feel free to use/link to the picture of the goodies. Please put a link to your post in a comment...I thank you. =)
I was going to make this a shorter contest, but I'll be at The Attic in Mesa, AZ for a Jackie du Plessis class (Chocolat...you may have seen me mention it once or twice...or fifteen times) and I'll be doing well to get the package off on the 12th! I want to get it to you in time to use the Fall threads while it's still Fall! =) Hopefully you'll have time to stitch up something nice for Thanksgiving. Well...unless you've already celebrated Thanksgiving. (I'm looking at you, Canada =) In that case, you'll have a spiffing start on next year.

Giveaway is now closed! I'll be announcing the winner soon!

Surely giving stuff away will make me feel better about cold temperatures coming my way!

Hmmm...I'm *hoping* you can find a few minutes to say "HI!" while you're here at *my* LNS!! LOL

Though I'm tempted to actually take the class...hmmmm

Amy said...

yay cross stitch goodies :)

since I shared my favorite fall dish on the other giveaway, I will share my second favorite fall dish - pot roast!

Real easy:
In crock pot, combine one pot roast, one can of cream of mushroom soup, one packet of lipton onion soup mix, and some carrots and potatoes. Cook on High for 4-5 hours :)

Pretty! Our favorite Thanksgiving recipe is based on this one by Claire Robinson. She's the 5 Ingredient Fix lady, so we BYOC (be your own chef) and swap the water for chicken broth/stock (sometimes it takes a little extra to make it moist enough) and add in some poultry seasoning. We know prefer this recipe over even my grandmother's old recipe. Not healthy, but so yum!

*Now, not know. ::sigh::

Blu said...

That stumpwork stuff looks interesting, as do the rest of the goodies.

Favourite fall dish would be pumpkin pie (if that counts). Yum.

Grr. Now I want pie. And at 10 in the night the stores are all closed. sigh

One of my favorite and simple things to make in fall is a pot roast in the crock pot. Get 2-4 lb pot roast meat. Cover with cream of mushroom soup (no H20) 3-4 cans. Cook on low 12 hours. Take meat out to plate and shred, return to crock pot and cook another hour or so. Make mashed potatoes and serve meat/gravy over potatoes or as Sam would say Po-Tay-TOES.

Lovely giveaway! Please add my name into consideration. :)

I'm adding a link to my post here for you:

I have two favorite dishes for autumn. First is my apple and sausage stuffing, which for some reason I only make for Thanksgiving. It's complete comfort food and really could be eaten as a meal. I have the recipe on my blog here.

The other is butternut squash bisque, which I don't make, but is served seasonally at a deli near my work - and OMG, it is guaranteed to take any tension out of you with every sip. Absolutely heavenly.

I'd like to be entered, please! I'm a follower. :)

Hard to think of a fall dish now, as I've lived in Texas for a while and there really isn't fall here. :p I love having baked goods around this time of year, but I'm terrible at baking (too much measuring!) so easy stuff like this is what I go for.


Man, now I want to make one...
