Contest!! PUMPKIN SEASON

 
As autumn is quickly approaching we thought it might be fun to do something a bit different.  So...


I am posting the start of a contest for all my readers.  What you need to do is post a comment here on the blog telling me why you would like to stitch my chart called Pumpkin Season and what you like about it.  The dates of the contest are from Sunday, September 13th  through Sunday, September 27th.  At the close of the contest I will draw a name from all the entries for a free chart.  Remember only posts here on the blog will be entered and only one entry per person will be counted--although you may comment as often as you like.  Kathy aka The Mad Stitcher will be mailing out the chart at the end of the contest.  I would also like to hear what you think about the blog including anything you would like to see added or improved upon.  We are always looking for something new and exciting to do here.

PLEASE: IF YOU CHOOSE TO POST ANONYMOUSLY YOU MUST AT LEAST SIGN YOUR NAME SO THAT WE WILL KNOW WHO YOU ARE. OTHERWISE YOU WILL NOT BE ENTERED IN THE DRAWING.

I would like to stitch this sampler mainly because of the different colors of pumpkins, and I love the way they look! The colors of the entire sampler are pretty and put me in anticipation of cider and pumpkin pie. Please enter me in your contest.

Fall is my favorite season and I like to decorate with pumpkins. I love the different colors the pumpkins are stitched in. This is a great design and a true "fall pleasure" to stitch. Thank you for the chance to win.

If you only knew how much I LOVE pumpkin season!! The muted and bright colors of fall speak to me and I love the smell and feel of autumn. Pumpkin pie, zucchini bread, candlelight, apple pie, jack-o-lanterns, trick or treating, hay rides, corn fields and scarecrows, blackbirds, crunchy leaves, swirling leaves, thanksgiving, family, turkey, sweet potatoes, pilgrims and indians.....just a few random thoughts of autumn. Your cross stitch pattern brings all of these things to mind. I would be honored to win this beautiful design. Thanks so much for offering such a fun pattern.

Karen said...

Love the design. Not only does it have pumpkins, and has not one but two houses (which I also love.) The colors are so fall like and I love them.

I recently discovered your blog and designs a couple of months ago and love your work. Hope to add some to my collection.

Okay, you're luring me out of lurkdom. I read your every post, but I'm very bad about commenting. However, for a chance to win one of your fabulous designs...!

I'd like to win and stitch this because I love pumpkins. Why do I love pumpkins? For the same reason I love eggplants. They're very cool looking and for some reason they make me think of women - that sort of round, curvy shape and the fact that they're full of seeds. LOL. The colors in this chart are also fantastic. So, fingers crossed, off I go back to lurkdom. ;)

I would love to stitch this samplar! I love the subject matter, the colors, and anything with houses on it. It would fit right in my house. thanks so much for the opportunity to win the pattern!

Diane Gill said...

When I first saw your wonderful samplar, the colors are what really draws the eye. There is something about the oranges, greens, browns, reds and cream that makes my heart pound. When I see these colors and the pumpkins, I am ready for pumpkin bread and stitching by a fire. Thanks!

Sadie said...

Oh please add my name to the pot. I would love to stitch this. :-)

Hum...what DON'T I like about the colors of the fall season? Even though every season has its beauty, I believe that we need time to slow down and enjoy the striking colors that the season brings us. It exudes warmth, coziness, family, love...I could go on and on. I would love to stitch it!
