Blog Tour and Six Word Give-Away

You could win this box of Passport-making goodies: SUNSHINE & RUST

In Stitches Blog Tour Launches This Week

Today, Pokey Bolton announced on Quilting Daily that she will host a blog tour! I am so excited to be a part of the second edition of In Stitches and happy to be a destination for the blog tour bus this Thursday. Pokey is offering an amazing prize of all 13 episodes of the series 700 of Quilting Arts TV by answering this question on her bog entry:
What is the most enjoyable part of stitching for you? Conversely, what drives you crazy or proves frustrating at times?

Souvenirs of the Blog Tour: Comment and Enter to Win

In that spirit of giving, I would love to spread the joy and share some inspiration by offering a gift from here, the Stitchtress stop along the bloggy-land tour. As I work at boxing up my sewing room, I will be building a gift package of supplies to help you build a Passport of your own (or whatever your creative heart desires). As I started pulling the first bits together, the theme “Sunshine & Rust” came to mind (mostly because of the colours that seemed to be dancing together through thread, ribbon, fabric and embellishment selections). The box will include:

  • Your very own copy of Threads: The Basics & Beyond
  • A Crop-A-Dile grommet setting tool
  • Assorted threads (by Madeira, Linda Palaisy, Star Quilting, WonderFil and Aurifil)
  • Two to five meter pieces of ribbons (velvet, hand-dyed, organza, silk & more)
  • Assorted fabrics: from silks to velvets; sparkle organza to vintage linen and lace
  • Embellishments including beads, wire & scrapbooking bits

Say Six Words; Share Your Style

This book box is valued at over $100. A winner will be selected after the tour closes, on or about March 8. It is easy to enter. Simply add a comment to THIS POST that answers this challenge: Describe your personal creative style in six words (a la the famed Six Word Memoirs series). For example: are you: “Traditional with a sense of humour” or “Can’t cut straight; I’m Lady dada”? Nothing says that you will be forever defined by these six words – it might just describe your artist within du jour.Be serious, playful or just take a wild guess. Who is the woman (or man) behind your needle? How can you capture her in six words?

a few favourite things to send you on your creative way

Enjoy the tour and see you soon.

Please Note: Entries are open to all who meet age of majority for contest entry in their country of residence. At this point, I can assume shipping costs throughout contiguous North America or the equivalent value applied to your destination. Winning entry will be selected by random; selection made from all qualifying six word entries. Notification of winner will be made through announcement here on Stitchtress Stumbles (and email/blog contact if provided). Only one entry per person/ email address please. This is a friendly good will offer with no commercial value. Best of luck to all ‘commentors’.

    • I TOTALLY get that and am so guilty of the overthinking/ fear/creative paralysis cycle! Why do we do that to ourselves? Maybe we need a dose of “Turn off brain, play like child!”

  1. 6 words: wife, grandmom,life coach,cats’vallet;
    inspiration and execution needs come from all of the above..and that marvelous key ring of yours is very appealing. Thanks for sharing!

    • And what is “it”- that is the question that keeps us motivated. (Sort of reminds me of “Curly” in City Slickers talking about that “one thing”, holding up a finger… what is that one thing? It’s different for each of us, but we all need to look for it. Thanks Janice.
