The Big Giveaway.....official prizes and rules...


PRIZE # 1.... One of my "Rise Above it All" pincushions.... This one is blue velvet and lavishly embellished with a vintage brooch and beads, jewels and trims....... plus a tiny locket... It is 8" tall with a weighted silver base. It will never get lost in your stash.

PRIZE #2..... Keeping with the blue theme, a trio of bluebirds hand-painted my me... Since these are antique mother-of-pearl buttons they are especially luminous and reflect every light source in the room..... thus are very difficult to photograph.. They are only 1" in diameter and have a metal shank in back... Although difficult to tell in the photo they are edged with gold...







Leave a comment on this post and you will be entered in the give-away. You can make a request for either one of the prizes or be willing to accept either... It goes without saying I would love it if you became a follower and visited often. Also make sure I have an email address to contact you - some of you don't have blogs or a published email, and I can't award a prize if I can't contact you!! If you don't specify which prize, I'll just randomly assign you to one of the prizes.

If you mention my blog and the give-away - and post a picture on your blog, you get another entry. Just let me know on this post that you've linked (I will check it out and add you to my blog list) and which prize drawing you'd like to be entered in for your second entry. That's it - maximum two entries per person.

DEADLINE - Tuesday, August 31 at midnight, Pacific Standard Time. I'll go through everything and announced the winners the next day... I figure that is about the time for my 700th post..... I really hope this all works and I'm especially thankful for advice from Pat Winter, Cathy Kizerian, and Kerry Leslie who always have great giveaways.... Help me out here and tell your friends....

Update: The headache and vision problems (blurred and double) seem to be abating and my ribs only hurt when I breathe....

Gerry - I have just been reading through your blog and catching up. You poor sweetie! OMG - you are lucky to be alive! You have to promise to take better care of yourself - treat yourself like one of your pincushions, like the treasure you are!
If you would be so kind as to enter my name in for the pincushion I would be very grateful - even more so if you put a bit of chewing gum to my entry so it sticks to your hand when you draw for the prize! (Fingers crossed!)
Hugs,
Kerry

Marty52 said...

So glad to hear the headaches are easing up... that deal with the ribs doesn't sound so great, though! I don't always comment but I read every post and always learn something new. Thanks for that! Should I be so lucky as to be chosen, I would love the painted buttons!

Gina said...

I love pincushions and have even made a few not quite as ornate as this one but sure would love to. Love the buttons too so I couldn't choose one over the other. Just found your blog so it will go in favorites to check in on.

Grovenore said...

Both the pin cushion AND the buttons are gorgeous. I do think, though, that the pin cushion would look gorgeous in my "blue room" aka sewing room.

Whytefeather said...

As always, your work is just gorgeous! I would hate to pick, but it would break my heart to have to keep the pincushion packed away to keep it from all the pet hair here!! So if I managed to win I'd love the buttons to use in a special CQ hanging. Thanks so much for sharing your work and giving everyone a chance to win!

so-crazy said...

FredaB said...

Hi Gerry
.
I am so sorry that your bike outing with GD had to end in such a bad way and then to have someone hit your truck - just does not seem fair. Double whammy.

I laughed when you said if you don't breath you don't hurt. Can't do much of that.

I am also so sorry you can not make it to the retreat. I was so looking forward to meeting you. Hopefully I will make Maureens and meet you there.

Take care of yourself.

Hugs

Freda B

ps - If I were to win it would be a terrible choice but I think the buttons would be my first choice. I love the way you paint them. Please open an etsy where the unlucky ones can buy your buttons.

You know what the doctor said, don't you? "If it hurts, don't do it." However, I think in this case you better continue to breathe!

I saw the link to your blog and giveaway over at Shawkl's blog. What beautiful work!

I would love either prize, but I am partial to the pincushion. Not that I would ever, ever stick a common pin in it!

I posted on my blog along with photos.

Well, to echo the sentiments of most of those before me, it is hard to choose which would be the better prize - but I DO have a particular fondness for birds and buttons, so I I would definitely lean towards those. Your painting is amazing, especially considering how small it must be! Thanks for sharing....

Hi Gerry--Found your blog through a post on Shawkl. Beautiful stuff! I've bookmarked it and will be back often.

I do any needlework that involved a needle with an eye, but mainly surface embroidery, and especially stumpwork and Brazilian embroidery.

I'd love to win either of the prizes in the giveaway, so please put me in for both.

Connie showed me your blog and told me about your giveaway -- oh how I would love to win either! Thank you for your generosity and congratulations on 700 posts!

Oh my, a chance to win one of your prized possessions? Holy cow send anything my way and I'll have to sit down when I open it up. You let me use Patch the cowboy on my blog and he seems very happy. Thanks again for him but stick me in the drawing. OK? Hugs, Eileene

Oh wow! I've got to try for that pincushion and the buttons would be great, too. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

These are absolutly beautiful and would love to win any thing you would like to give away. The pin cushion and the buttons are great pieces. I think I will try your painting lessons.
