October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

And I'm going to be doing a giveaway each Sunday during the month.

Several years ago, Lois at Elegant Stitch put together all these little kits as a breast cancer fundraiser and I purchased the series.  There are multiple different designers and the kits are complete with everything you need for stitching and finishing.



I only ended up making two or three of them and the rest of them have been tucked away in a closet for way too long.  I found them again when I moved and decided I really needed to get them out there.


My hope is that if you win one of the kits, you will consider making a donation to an organization that is working hard to find a cure for women's cancers like breast and ovarian, either locally where you live or a national organization like the Susan G. Komen foundation.  We've come a long way with survival rates, but there's still a long way to go.


So,  I will give away 2 kits to 2 different winners each week on Sunday. You can enter multiple times/weeks but only win once.  The first two kits shown in this post will be given away on the 6th and then I will pick two more out of the box and post which ones they will be next Monday.

That's very generous of you, Patti!

Just so you know, I've been reading your blog, but I'm using bloglovin now instead of google reader. Google reader allowed me to comment on your blog without leaving the site. Bloglovin now makes me leave the site to comment on your blog. It only does that for a few of the blogs I follow, and I'm not sure why.

I always regretted not getting the Bright Needle Mermaid. Don't enter me until that giveaway. (I don't want to win too early!)
