Once a year the local library has a HUGE book sale here. It's not just books, either. They have magazines, music, movies, pretty much anything you would find in a library, actually. My favorite section is the magazines/pattern leaflets (of course). You can get 3 magazines for $1, and the leaflets are $.10 each!
This year, they didn't seem to have as much available as they have had in previous sales (at least for the patterns, anyway), but I did manage to get some awesome stuff, and I only spent $3 on all of it!
I was going through my new stash, and I realized that I will probably not stitch a lot of them, I just grabbed them because they were cute, and for $.10, why not? So, I decided I will do another giveaway! The winner will get to pick something they want from my new stash items below, anything!
Here are the patterns that I picked up and have available:
|Zweigart Aida Plus - Noah's Ark|
|Folk Art Favorites|
|Fingertip Friends for the Holidays|
|Noah's Ark for Baby|
|Stoney Creek - Mar/Apr 1994|
|For the Love of Cross Stitch - Sept 1994|
|Cross Stitch and Country Crafts - Sept/Oct 1993|
|Net Darning Revival|
OK, so the last one isn't cross stitch. However, the designs can easily be used for cross stitching.
Also, as a disclaimer, for the Owls leaflet, it looks as though the previous owner liked to highlight as they went along, so one of the patterns (owl in flight, lower left of cover) is almost completely highlighted, but is still readable. There is another one, as well, that has a small portion highlighted, too.
Also, the 3 pictured above the Net Darning Revival are magazines, so there are multiple additional patterns included!
To be in my giveaway, all I ask is that you be a follower of my blog and post a comment that you would like to be included. I will draw the winning name in about a week (probably on Sunday, 4/3).
Please spread the word! I want to get as many people entered as I can! If there is a large turnout, I may have several drawings!
