I've become a follower and I'd like to be included in your give away. The most meaningful piece I ever stitched (and still have hanging on my wall) is the Serenity Prayer that I stitched while I was married to an alcoholic (who has since passed) and I was attending Al-Anon. To this day the Serenity Prayer is an important part of my daily prayers. It has helped me keep my sanity many times over. I will post your give away on my blog.

Harvestangel said...

I just became a follower and would love to be entered into your drawing. The piece I did is a collage of smaller designs from a book by Sam Hawkins called 501 cross stitch designs. When things got stressful with my then husband I would stitch on this piece. As Dottie says in her post it saved my sanity as well. It has feminine and masculine designs. I have a pic of it in the photo section on I love cross stitch, look for Harvestangel. Thank you.

CalamityJr said...

I am a new follower as well,but love seeing your talent in all the pieces you finish and share with us. The piece I find most meaningful right now was a pattern in JCS last year with a pot of flowers representing hope and other happy thoughts that I made for a friend whose grandson has been diagnosed with autism. I know that my answer will change periodically, but that's what we're all about, right?! Thanks for the chance to be entered in your give away.

Cogratulations on your 100th. I can't wait to reach mine. My favorite stitch I ever did was Tatiana Fairy by Mirabilia. It was stitched for my niece just after she was born. It was my first large piece and it was just so gorgeous. She still has that piece hanging in her room 6 years later. I will also post on my blog. Congrats again. I love your stitching and finishing.

~*Shar*~ said...

Congrads hun... I hope to make 100 someday. LOL I've been a follower of your blog for a short time; and love to see all the new things you stitch; I think my most meaningful piece is a picture I made for my mom; you know the song "Wind beneath my wings" that is my song to my mom; well I stitched the words and made a pretty flower boarder around it and gave it to her; this was about 22 years ago and it still hangs in her bedroom. Please enter me in your giveaway and I will also mention your give a way on my blog. I need all the chances I can get. LOL

Blu said...

Happy 100! It's always fun to reach a milestone. I'd love to be entered in your giveaway.
My favourite finish (as of right now) is Mirabilia's Bluebeard Princess. There's just something about her that just grabs me.

angel parker said...

Congrats on your 100th follower. I would love to be included in your giveaway. My most meaningful piece that I have ever stitched is the piece that is highlighted on my blog. It is the picture of two little girls building a sandcastle on the beach. I did the piece when my two girls were the size of the girls in the picture. My daughters are 22 and 24 now. I look at that picture every day and think of my babies, because that is what they will always be to me.

Anne Sans Tete said...

I am a follower, and I'd love to be entered in the drawing. One of my favorite pieces to stitch was Cat by JBW Designs as a memorial for two of our cats who died last year. I gave it to my mom for Christmas. You can see it on my blog :) & I will post about your giveaway too.

Love looking at your projects.

I have stitched a few over time, have a few on the go, (The Lord's Prayer) and have a few which I want to start but can't! Not until I have something completed to show!

Congrats on your 100 followers milestone!

GoldenAngelsWorks said...

Congratulations on your 100 followers!

Please include me in your giveaway.

I knew I was a follower... must have lost you somehow when I changed the look of my blog. I am again a follower. (gotta read up and see what I missed)

My favorite piece is actually 3 different ones(all in my blog).... The first is "May the Lord" (angel in God's hands) - Reminds me that my 4 miscarried angels are waiting in God's hands for me. The second is "In the arms of an angel" was stitching this in the hospital and finished this after my father passed away. The last one was a altered "May the Lord" for a memorial pillow for a wonderful little boy.

I have posted your giveaway in my blog and it automatically posts to my facebook.

Thank you for this opportunity.

Wow, 100 followers! Congratulations!
I'd love to be included in your draw. My favourite piece varies depending on my mood. I specially love the Blackbird Designs piece "Beyond my Heart", which is on my dining room wall, another favourite is a large Hummel design I stitched for my Mum.

Raven/Missy said...

Congratulations Cindy on 100 followers! I have been a follower for a while and would love to be included in your giveaway. I did put a notice on my blog about it as well.

My favorite piece of stitching so far..ohh that is a tough question as I have a few that I have done which I really love, but the teddy bear on a china cabinet that I stitched for my biological mother is still my most loved piece. She passed away before I could give it to her in person, but it was buried with her. It was also my first finished counted cross stitch piece. It meant a lot to me to stitch for her as I only knew her for a very short (too short!) time.

Faye said...

Good morning!!! Of course I am a follower and would love a chance at your great give away!!

I would say one of my favorite pieces that I have stitched is a La-D-Da that I have stitched twice called "Rejoice Simply Rejoice"..It was done for a young man who volunteered his time to help teenage boys by being a mentor in the Young Life program. He stuck with those boys 4 years (9th grade through graduation)...So, to me he is like an angel!!! After I made it for him, I had to make it for myself!

Thanks again for this great opportunity! Faye

Kim R. said...

Mary Beth said...

A recent favorite stitch would be Sleepy Hollow by the Cricket Collection. It was one of those that I just couldn't put down!

Jennifer said...

My favorite piece is Mirabilia's Mermaids of the Deep Blue which is currently hanging in my office. But, my most meaningful is "Love, Me" whice was stitched by my BFF as a wedding gift for Hubby and I.

I've also posted your giveaway on the sidebar of my blog.

Patty C. said...

Count me in
I just love the LHN patterns
My favorite piece is a beatitudes pattern I stitched many years ago as a gift - it had filament and beads throughout dogwood trees with a bluebird nest in the bottom corner- I don't have the pattern anymore and I don't recall the name - but it was Gorgeous

Tracey said...

I am now a follower! One of my favorite pieces that I stitched is Christ in Gethsemane. It took me forever but the end product was worth it! :) Off to post about your giveaway on my blog.

Lillie said...

Congrads, Tracey!!

Catherine said...

Deb said...

I just became a follower because I just found your blog. I'd love to entered into your giveaway. If you have time, hop over to my blog - I'm having a giveaway too.

Kathy said...

I am a follower and would love to be included in your giveaway drawing.

As for my favorite stitched piece it would have to be Everyone Brings Joy from Waxing Moon. :) One of my sisters saw it and had to have one also. The sentiment? "Everyone brings joy to this house. Some when they enter and others when they leave."


Robin said...

Hi Cindy! Please include me in your giveaway. I am a follower and I have posted on my site. I have to admit my favorite piece to stitch is the one sitting in my workbasket waiting for me to start is the anticipation of the new fiber, fabric and floss and the potential of watching a new design come to life.

Carol said...

Congratulations on 100 followers, Cindy! Glad to be one of them for so long--I've loved getting to know you better and seeing your lovely work :)

My favorite piece is one I stitched about two years ago: LHN's "Nature's Beauty." I just love nature (as you can tell by all my nature photos on my blog!!) and the saying on this piece really reflects my feelings.

Thanks for the giveaway chance!

Es said...

Congratulations on 100 followers! I've not completed many of my stitched works, but I have to say that my favourite so far has been working on my HAED, Persephone. That said, the one I've poured most of my love into and I've found challenging and learned new things from is Winter's Majesty by maia designs that I'm currently stitching for my mum. It's a very challenging piece, but it's beautiful and I'm enjoying doing it, especially because I'm learning about stitching (and about myself - my patience, or lack thereof etc) throughout the experience :)

Thanks for hosting a giveaway. I'd love to be included, and have posted on my blog too.

Kttycat said...

Yay 100 followers. Now you can add another. Thanks for being so giving. I have also posted on my blog for you.

I'd like a chance to enter yours - do you want to enter mine??
Congratulations and happy stitching!

Bronny said...

forgot to mention my favourite stitched piece would have to be a Family Tree - it was a Dimensions kit, and I think it was a Stoney Creek design. I altered the wording to suit and my youngest son loves to look at it and asks questions about the generations upon it.
Thank you again for this chance!

Niina said...

Hi! Forgot to say my favourite stitching, that would be two birthsighs from Maria van Scharrenburg for my beautifull girls, age 1 and 4 :)

Mel said...

Congrats on hitting 100! :)
How very exciting.

The most meaningful piece I've ever done... tough. I think I'm working on it right now. it's hummingbirds from Just Cross Stitch magazine for my Grandma. I am doing them to try and brighten up her home after Grandpa's death just a few months ago. I am hoping that something new that is just hers will help her out.

Congratulations on 100 followers. I have a new blog so that seems like a zilllion!! HaHa!
My most memorable piece was for a dear friend that stitched also and we worked night shift together. One year we stitched each other a Christmas present. I still have mine and loved the Heart in Hand that I finished for her.
I also blogged about your giveaway on my blog also.

Sally said...

Congratulations on your 100th follower:) Would love to be entered into your drawing please.

I think the most meaningful piece I have stitched would have to be Lavender and Lace Angel of Hope which I stitched way back in 1999 when my dear mother-in-law was having treatment for multiple myeloma.

I am also a new follower - my most meaningful piece is probably my first - a birth sampler for my son, now aged seventeen!! Have stitched one for each of the five children since, but that got me 'hooked' on stitching! I will post your giveaway on my blog :)

Beth N. said...

Congrats on your blog! I really love all of your work. I have quite a few meaningful pieces that I have stitched over the years,but my favorite one I did when I was 6 years old. It says "East to west-Home is best" with a small bird in its nest.I love looking at all the croocked lines and yellowing fabric. It was done almost 50 years ago.Thanks for the giveaway chance,Beth N. (

sharona said...

Mare said...

hey Cindy, I see that you also have a few of the spammers posting to your blog too. I wonder what we need to do to get rid of them? At first I thought it was just people you posted in a different language but I am told their links are to porn crap or virus stuff. If you figure it out before I do please let me know.... Love your blog and your small projects!

Tina S said...

Enter me, please! I love the sampler I stitched called "Thy Crownest The Day With Thy Bounty". The chart was in a cross stitch magazine (don't remember which one) and I made it about 12 years ago. It's still hanging in my bedroom.

arlette said...

I just found your blog and I'd love to be included in the fun... I adore to cross stitch it's my passion, I've made tons and tons of stuff, but I'm still not tired, and I'm looking forward to make more, this is one of my fave projects so far love the colors they design for it.

arlette said...

I'm your new follower and I'm looking forward to see more things about you :)
