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.
