Mini-Giveaway 13 - Embroidery Thread

Stats out the way first:

These are skeins of DMC thread, 6 strands, roughly totaling 8.7 yards per skein.



I bought these(price at the time: approx. 25 cents per skein!) at various times through years 2000-2004 when I was into cross stitching...



When I started quilting, I knew my cross stitching days were over (eyes, etc) and started using them to baste with...

The above pictures are just examples of what I have...

See what I want to empty?



I know I'll never use all of these, and want to give them to someone who could use them...

I have so much that there is a good possibility this time of multiple winners,, how many, I don't know yet. 3 or 4 maybe ...whoever wins will get random amounts & colors. I am  not going to go through and count...probably just grab a holder full, eyeball them re the amount,  and stuff them in a mailing container (well, nicely stuff.....).  I will probably keep the rings they are on... most of them are in their plastic baggies, although I will probably add a few that slipped out of the plastic...

Anyway, now to the ya-da, ya-da, ya-da.....comment please and be sure I can reach you...DH will draw names on Monday, July 18 after 10:00am, CST...I am going on a weekend (Sat & Sun) bus trip to visit 6 different quilt shops, so after getting back home about 8:30 - 9:00 the previous night, 10:00 on a Monday morning may come a little soon...Don't fret if I am a few minutes late.....


=======================


I am still in the throes of the storm before the calm in my cleaning, filing fabric, etc.  Nothing pops out now for next time (August 1), but there will be a next time....

I am trying to build up my floss stash once again. I used to do counted cross stitch and had every DMC color there was. When I had to go back to work I donated everything. Now I'm trying to rebuild. Thanks for the opportunity to enter your giveaway!!

I have just rediscovered embroidery, and I cannot stop! I am trying to combine it with pieced quilt blocks, and also doing small projects like pot holders bordered with square patches. I gotta say, I sure hope your weekend -- 6 quilt shops! -- is wonderful! What an exciting, fun time!

Thank you for this opportunity! I am doing embroidery (LMS Birdie Stitches BOM) and some Aussie ones, and it would be great if have a collection of floss. Right now, I'm using the same few colors all the time. This is a treasure trove giveaway!

Although I haven't done Xstitch for a long time, apart from handpiecing and quilting, I do quite a few stitcheries, and also use the floss for blanket stitch appliques so I would definitely Love some of those yummies. :)

I would LOVE to be one of your winners of the DMC. I've gotten back into x-stitch this year after finishing THREE x-stitch UFOs I had going. What a sense of accomplishment it was! Thanks for the chance.

I love floss! I come and go with cross stitching and I'm trying to learn embroidery. Thanks for the chance.

I would love a little bit of it. I have a project for my hubby that I have yet to start. I wanted to have it done before we got married...10 years ago. Getting some new stuff will help get me going again.
