Giveaway! Tartan Cross Stitch Earrings

15 Jul

Avid followers of my blog and/or shop will know that I have started creating tartan cross stitch earrings.  These miniature pieces of art are created by cross stitching the tartan pattern and mounting it onto antique silver frames and matching earwires.

I want to expand my collection (I only have three tartans at the moment!) but I’m not sure what the most popular tartans would be.MacleodEarrings[1]

This is where you come in!

I am offering a free pair of custom tartan cross stitch earrings, stitched in your own family’s tartan.  What a unique prize (if I do say so myself!)

Here is what you need to do:

  • Click on the giveaway button below to be taken to the giveaway entry page.
  • Tell me what your family’s tartan is.  This may require a little research on your part and obviously not everyone will have a Scottish name.  However even if your own name isn’t Scottish, you may have Scottish ancestors so I am happy for you to enter a substitute name.  The point being I just want to find out what the most common tartans will be!
  • You can also submit additional entries by following the steps on the Rafflecopter website (e.g. follow my blog, like my Facebook page etc)

This giveaway will be open for entries for one week – ending at midnight (BST) on 21 July.  The winner will be announced on Monday 22 July and it will take me one week to create the custom tartan earrings.


MacdonaldEarrings[1]In the meantime you can find my current offering of Tartan Cross Stitch Earrings right here.  Remember you can use Coupon Code CIJUK10 for 10% off everything in my Etsy shop until the end of July.

Thanks in advance and good luck!

Giveaway! Cross Stitch Heart Button Ring

If you follow me on Twitter you will know that I recently made a new button ring featuring a cross stitched heart.  It’s really adorable so I’m going to keep the first one for myself.  However, so as not to be really mean, I’ve decided to make another one and give it away for free right here!

The heart is stitched using luscious red satin thread, mounted onto a plastic button and finished with a knitted band of stretchy cotton sock yarn.

This giveaway is open from now until next Friday (26th October) to everyone worldwide. All I ask in return is that you answer a very short questionnaire about the ring once it arrives.  As an additional thank you I will also be offering a generous coupon code for use in my Etsy Shop.

Good luck everyone!
