An offering

Greetings.  It's been a little while since I offered you a token of my appreciation. 
Now ~ I've been seeing a few giveaways that include tons of charts, linen, and silk threads.  This isn't one of those.  It's just this.  Not much is it? 

As you know, I've been ridding my craft room of unused items and I happened across a few labels that I was playing with.  So I thought - what the heck?  The offer is for this small 4" paper mache box with the label of my free pattern (under Needle Keep). 
  You can stitch the chart into a little pinkeep, or a soft folding needlebook (instead of this complicated hard sided stiff book that my lovely sister in law preferred), and have a little box to match.  Or just the peacock for a fob. 



Stitching the right half of the chart beneath the peacock as Jill from Purple Peacock did, would make a great folding needlebook. 
 Thanks again Jill for coming up with this great alternative (which I actually prefer).



Anyway, I made the box the other day and of course, tore the house apart looking for it.  You've made me feel better by relating to my losing misplacing items, but this is really chapping my hide.  I found it, won't tell you where.  I would tape it to the TV (which is filling up rapidly) but I don't want the tape to ruin the paint finish.  So I'm putting it in my car.  I keep a large cooler in the back for groceries and I'll put a note on the TV of its location.  Of course I will need to remove it when I put the ice pack in and go to the market, which means it could end up anywhere.  I'll figure something out.
If you would like this wimpy little token of my appreciation to all of you that take the time to visit with me, please leave a comment stating so on this post only.
The offer will close on Saturday, August 11, at 9pm EST.
Later!

That is so sweet and I'm sure whoever wins will be thrilled! Please don't enter me ~ not that I wouldn't love it ~ but because I've won before and don't want to be greedy.

Marly, I think your giveaway box is great..especially since you are not going to make these anymore! Please enter my name, I would be thrilled to display it in my home. Thanks for the offer.

How could we survive without sticky notes? And all we have to do is remember where the note is!

Just read your last post too..hope the pattern is better than the picture--or I will really praise your for your ability to read any of it! Love the cupboard also.

Your work is so beautiful, even in a small form. I check on your blog everyday. I haven't cross stitched in a while, but I find you such an inspiration.

Thank you for the opportunity to win your sweet little box.

You are too funny Marly - taping notes all over the place so that you won't forget. I must admit that I have the same problem and misplace things often! Thank you for such a sweet offer!

I have seen the peacock chair in person as Jill is a stitching bud of mine:)

TheCrankyCrow said...

What a precious little token it is Marly.....I'd offer up my addy so you wouldn't have to worry about sticky notes, tvs, coolers, and such, but that probably wouldn't be fair, now would it? ;o) Seriously - it's a wonderful offering of your amazing creativity.... Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

Margaret said...

Well of course I'd love a chance to win your little box! I love how Jill finished hers -- so cute! I do understand the whole misplacing things thing. It's awful. I never dare to move anything once I've put something somewhere for fear of not knowing where I moved it to.

Thank you for being you and sharing your moments; we are only human. I would be honored to receive your little token of appreciation, should I be chosen.

Keep on stitching, P.J.

Have a great week!
