A Week of Giveaways Day 1: Embroidery Gift Pack

Spend the afternoon. You can't take it with you. –Annie Dillard

Welcome to the party! Today is my 2-year blog anniversary and later in the week it is my birthday. So I'm celebrating with a week of giveaways! Let the festivities commence!

Today's giveaway is a collection of things to either get you started with embroidery, or to add to your existing embroidery tools.

Included in this gift pack:
• 22 skeins of DMC embroidery floss
• 28 floss bobbins
• DMC floss number stickers
• One flexible thimble {small and medium pictured here; we'll work out the details for fit later}
Thread Heaven thread conditioner
• A pair of embroidery scissors
• Twenty size 10 embroidery needles
• A fine-point water soluble marking pen.

The Fine Print:
• You can enter each giveaway during the week only once. However if you spread the word about my week of giveaways by posting on your blog and sending people on over to check it out, you can have one additional entry on one giveaway of your choice. After you post on your blog, leave a comment on my giveaway post for which you'd like a second entry with a link to your post. Please make sure to include my giveaway button somewhere in your post.
