Two from Down Under

More Totally Useless Stitch A Long prizes to share! These have come all the way from Australia. I've had them for a while just haven't made time to post them. There are others as well...saving those for another day. I can be such a tease.

This first one is from Leonie of Fireflies and Cats in the Garden. She has sent three little kits. Is that koala bear cute, or what? Side note...when going to create the link in this post I discovered I did not have Noni's blog in my reader, or in my link list and I wasn't following her blog! I had to hunt down her blog from the TUSAL post =[ Sorry, honey! You have been added to everything now! Thanks for the donation, Noni!


The next donation comes from Shelley of All I Want is Everything. Again, three little kits! Three is a magic number. Postcards and a greeting card to create with these kits! Fun! Thank you Shelley, these are really neat!


The prize donation box is getting fuller. It's going to be a big package for the winner! If you would like to make a prize donation you can email me for my mailing address, there is a link in my sidebar. Other than stash items, I would love to see some stitched prizes added to the box. We only have one stitched item in the works for the giveaway. Wouldn't it be lovely to have some pin pillows, needlecases, scissor fobs and such?



*sigh* I swear, for every post I finish reading, two more appear in my reader. I can't keep up...you people stitch like fiends. If I haven't gotten to your blog lately ~ give it time. I will catch up somehow! My own stitching is secret. Although, I may set it aside soon for some "me" stitching so I have something I can share.



Thank you for visiting my blog today!

Great prizes! Some lucky winner is going to have a field day!

I have difficulty keeping up with my blog reading with working full time. It often cuts into stitching time and we can't have that, lol!

Ma Teakettle said...

Wow, what wonderful treats for the giveaway!
I totally know what you mean, and have never been good at keeping up with the blogosphere, but I figure since we are all in the same boat, there should be no worries...love love love, Daff.
XOXO

There are to many great stitchers!!!!

Marlene said...

You work so hard on here, what you need is a blog day, but then you would want to stitch on a spare day. Oh well it's lucky we can all juggle our time so well.

Villa-loredana said...

You will come to see us, take a time, in meantime we will enyoed in your. Have a nice Sunday. Loredana

Loralynn said...

What a lovely bunch of goodies someone will be getting!

Jo said...

Lovely prizes!! You are such a star for organising this!

Beth said...

It is really impressive to see how nice stitchers can be. I love the way you keep getting goodies for the prize - just wonderful.

I know how you feel about making it to all of the posts in our readers - it's HARD. And, counterproductive. That is the big bummer. Oh well, we all have to have fun in one way or another - right?

Kttycat said...

I'm planning on making a couple scissor fobs to send your way for the package.

Carolyn NC said...

Very cool!

Lindsay said...

How generous!

I'm planning on making something for the prize pot but a beaded something not a stitched something, hope that's ok

Angela P said...

More wonderful prizes! I could also stitch up something smaller to go into the prize box too, just let me know? I was thinking of stitching an ornament instead of the pillow but I really want to stitch that pillow too, LOL. Decisions, decisions. I'll see what I can come up with for you.

Quilts and other things said...

Hey - I know what you mean about time spent in blogland - to be honest I limit blog time to the minimum - I have a few that I read regularly and cherry pick through the rest. I only have limited time to do my quilting anyway.

Don't let the tail wag the dog!

I will send you a small quilt for the prize box.

BTW - I think that you are great for what you do - thanks. x

CJ said...

WOW, where are you keping all the goodies for the TUSAL? I may have to weave another pincushion and send it to you to be added to the pile. How many stitchers are participating?

I sometimes think if I spent less time reading all the blogs I follow I'd have more time for stitching :-)

I just discovered your TUSAL today but by pure coincidence I'd written a post about my ORTS collection on 3 February. Spooky!

The post is here, if your interested.

Have fun with your TUSAL. It looks like you have some lovely prizes to give away.
