Want to win a fall teapot?

Are you as ready for fall as I am? We've had a cool spell here in Georgia this week -- it only reached 89 some days! -- and that's got more than a few of us ready for the next season to come on and show itself. I think that's one reason I was drawn to this Sandy Lynam Clough cross-stitch design of a teapot when I found it at a thrift store the other day.

I saw it on this brand spanking new kit which was marked just $2.88. I haven't cross-stitched in years, but for some strange reason I have a hankering to pick up the needle again!

Perhaps one of you feels the same way. I couldn't leave such a great and thrifty find for just *anybody* to buy since this definitely belongs with a tea lover. If you'd like to win this extra kit, just leave a comment before 7 a.m. EST Monday and you'll be entered to win!

I like Sandy Clough's artwork and this fall teapot cross-stitch is lovely. You know who'd be stitching up this pretty piece for me, if I win your giveaway. :-)

What a great find! I haven't cross stiched in years. You're right about getting that Fall bug, just the feel of the past few morings and I'm ready for a change! :-)

I spoke with Sandy Clough several years ago when putting together a tea event at Hunter House Victorian Museum. She is a delightful lady. I would love to cross stitch her design!

It is a wonderful design, I am like you - I have not picked up a cross stich sampler for years.
Happy Friday!

I enjoy my tea and love to visit your blog. What a great treasure you found at the thrift store. The only needlework I find there are usually something from the 1970s...not too pretty at all. :o)

I also like Sandy Clough's art and would be delighted to join your giveaway.

Thank you!

As always, you have such pretty give aways. I'd love the cross-stitch kit. Wouldn't it be so pretty on a tea cozy!?
