May Giveaway (and survey)

I have a series of really nice, hardcover cross stitch crafting books that I think some of my blogging buddies might enjoy. I'm offering one of these books for you to keep or give away as a gift. If you do not cross stitch right now, but would like to learn, the instructions are very explicit and have wonderful illustrations and diagrams for you to follow.

So, I'm having a Giveaway for one of those lovely hard-cover books and a small favor to ask in return. Some of you have already answered my question as to which of my crocheted bees you prefer on this previous post:

Well, I'll bee...

To enter this Giveaway, just write a comment stating that you would like to be included in the drawing. Also, if you have not answered my survey previously, please also let me know which of my crocheted bees you like best (either for yourself or as a gift to someone.) Good luck!

Here's a sneak peek of what you will find inside this 144 page book that I am offering here today:

Every comment gets one entry and my followers get two.

Giveaway ends in two weeks and I'll be announcing the winner on May 27th, 2010. Again, good luck, and thanks in advance for answering my little "bee survey."

The frazzled bee has to be my favorite after the hat. He is SOOOOO cute.

Cathy said...

I used to do a lot of cross stitch when I was younger and my eyes were younger! lol! but I still love it!! Your books look interesting and I'd love a chance to win one :)
I looked over your crocheted bees again (I've seen them in your Etsy shop before) and they are all so cute!
Doris, thanks for the Giveaway fun!!

Hi Doris! I did already comment on my favorite bees, and I am a follower, so please do count me in for your cross stitch books giveaway! Thank you!... I've gotten a little crochet, AND a little crafting done this morning... On to chores now, and maybe I can cross stitch a blessing or two tonight! Hope you're enjoying your day! ((hugs)) ~tina

Wouldn't mind being added in this give-away. Years ago, I loved cross-stitching very much, but got to admit that I haven't done very much of it recently. It's kind of funny, because I looked at my hoops the other day and thought that I should make something again.

By the way....thanks for your comment and yes I will make sure to include more info and pics on my blog real soon.

Till than.....Tschuess

the angel bees I think - hard to choose - and please include me in your giveaway if you are prepared to post overseas

Ama said...

I am a follower and I love cross-stich so am excited about your giveaway.

Cast my vote for the angel bees...they are adorable.

You sure are creative with your hook. :o)

loven' the bees...neat book. I am a needlepointer, and haven't cross-stritched in ages, so it'd be fun to try again...

AkasaWolfSong said...

I just joined your blog and I am so impressed with just everything! :) I am entering your giveaway if that is alright?
I love your bee bookmark, the cute bee potholder and I adore the bee sunhat!!! All of them are beeutiful and it was hard to choose!
The book looks interesting and since I have never cross-stiched perhaps I could learn a thing or too as I love women who can craft and make something so useful as well as bring a bit of happiness to others...
Many blessings and thank you for the chance to enter the giveaway!

I have not cross stitched in ages!, but they look like some lovely books. Went and looked at the honey bees, and I think they are all cute! I like the hat, the shelf sitters, they all look great!

Sarah said...

Lovely books, however...I've enough things on my "plate" and in the wings of my mind to keep me busy for several other words, I wanted to comment on the books-not enter the Giveaway!
