Are you serious?!?!?! Please add me straight away. I'll advertise your giveaway in my blog. Have to think about what I could giveaway.

Virpi said...

Sorry, I was so amazed that I forgot to answear into your questions. I have been reading your blog several years since I found it through Stitchers Circle. I love all your quilts and the best thing that I remember you have finished is the Nature's home afghan.

ariadne said...

I only saw your blog now from Virpi.
I am Ariadne from Greece,I have been cross stitching for years and I have seen these angels many a time especially as charts and kits. Your giveaway is very generous! I would like to take part.I have not got a blog yet so I can't advertise your giveaway.Anyway you consider if I should take part or not.
It is fun to find European cross stitch blogs.Ariadne from Greece!

Gills Blog said...

Wow....are you really sure you want to give away such a lovely piece? It must have taken you ages to do. I would love to be added to your giveaway.

I have only been into blogging a few weeks and have seen yours whilst I have been surfing, its lovely and you have done some amazing pieces, especially the quilts which I envy you being able to do. I do afghans myself, which you can see on my blog... I will advertise your giveaway on my blog, and will think about what piece I will do to giveaway

Well, I've been blogging for about a month now and steadily adding other blogs as I discover them (I belong to CountedCrossStitch and KniftyKnitterLooms on Yahoo). I've been stitching for about 10 years now. I currently live in Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas, US and have 20 days to go until my due date (baby girl).
That piece is gorgeous. Can't believe you're giving it away. I especially love that fabric as it sets the whole piece off. I think a gold frame or mat would set it off nicely.
I'm a follower and am posting a link on my blog
I'd love to do my own giveaway but I've got so much to get ready before the baby comes.

Sabine said...

Wauwie, Judith... Toen ik nog tijd had (of beter gezegd nam) om te borduren met de hand vond ik de lavender & lace patronen al mooi. Deze helemaal, roze en zomer... Had mijn omschrijving kunnen zijn :-) Wil dus erg graag kans hierop maken...Zoals je weet, volg ik je blog al enkele maanden, sinds ik mijn eigen blog heb :-)
Ik ben ook wel een de weggeef-stemming zo met de feestdagen, dus zal ook een give-away bedenken!

Groetjes, Sabine

Laura said...

Judith, I know about your blog from BAPXS. I LOVE reading all of your updates and seeing everything you accomplish. Some of my favorites are your smalls that you do for exchanges. Your finishing is always so beautiful and just compliments the stitched pieces. This is such a generous giveaway. I know whoever wins your Angel will treasure it!

Laura :)

inge said...

hoe lang lees ik je blog? LANG! geen idee hoe lang, sinds het eerste quiltweekend samen?
wat ik je mooiste affo vind? alles wat met quilten te maken heeft, ik herinner me iets met 'lente' maar weet de titel niet meer

omashee aka Barb said...

Judith, Are you OK? Have you been seen by a doctor lately? Girl, you must be outta your mind!!!! This L&L is just too beautiful! Of course I want to be entered in your giveaway!

I've been a follower for ages. I adore all your finishes but am particularly fond of your Schnibbles. Anxiously await the LRRH updates! Love your finishing techniques also. You're a very talented lady. I'd be honored to have a piece of your work in my home.

I'm considering doing Bonnie's Mystery also but the timeing is difficult for me. This is such a busy time of year & I have so many projects going already.

I will immediately go blog about your giveaway at my blog
I have been considering another giveaway for my blog and have found a chart I'd like to share. Please check it out!

Please, please, please pick me!!!!

Mandy said...

Hello! I've been following your blog through my blog roll on my own sewing blog for a couple of months maybe...

I'm pretty sure I found out about your blog from Conny's Quilts in someway. She's from the Netherlands too and was my Friendship bag partner!

I think all of your work is beautiful so I can't pick only one piece lol!

I've also become a follower of your blog now :)

Take Care... if you're really bored, you can visit me too at !

marleen said...

Cindy's Stitching said...

That is just an amazing piece. Would like to hang it in by bedroom. Would definately have it framed. Just started following your blog - came across it on another site. I like all of the sewing and stitching you do. This is my favorite piece. Cindy - NY

Jitske Quiltpoes said...

Sherry DuBois said...

Been reading your blog only since I joined the group. You do beautiful work. Sherry

Jeanne said...

OH, MY GOODNESS! You are giving away a "stitched" angel! I am in awe of the finished work. It would take me forever to finish that one. VBG I've been following your blog since at least 2007, and a little over two years ago, I was the lucky recipient of a darling little box that you made with a kitty on the cover. It has been by my sewing chair ever since. I'll have to read the rest of the rules now.

GoldenAngelsWorks said...

That piece is absolutely stunning Judith.

I have been reading your blog on and off for years. I have always loved your stitching. I think the TW wedding sampler has always been one of my favorites as I loved watching it grow.

I am a follower of yours.

I have also posted about your giveaway on my blog.

I also have a giveaway going on right now.... until Dec. 15th!

SewCalGal said...

What a beautiful piece of art. I love angels and I love cross stitch. I just am not good enough for cross stitch (stitches are too uneven). As I've always admired cross stitch I find it funny that I consider myself to be a good hand quilter, but not good enough for cross stitch.

Your angel is absolutely delightful. A true treasure.

I just got introduced to your blog, but I truly do love it. And I'd love to see more of your cross stitch work and hear about your insights, and you don't need to have a giveaway to keep me coming back....but admittedly giveaways are always fun!


KatieQ said...

I discovered your blog sometime this year (can't remember exactly) through Judy L's weekly stashbusting post. I don't have a blog, but I eagerly follow the fabric and stitching adventures of the bloggers who post their fabric gains and losses.
My favorite of your finishes this year are the Snowball/9 patch and the Bento Box. I think it is because I gathered together fabrics for both of these quilts this year and never started them. Seeing yours made me glad I didn't start because I want to adjust my fabric choices.
Thank you for offering readers a chance to take part in your generous giveaway.

Lori said...

The Angel piece is so beautiful. I've been reading your blog for about a year, came thru Judy L stash busting reports. I really like all your work, can't wait to see your red riding hood finish. I have your blog give away listed at.

sari.i. said...

Wow, what a beautiful piece, count me in! :) Well, the favorite piece from you - even though it is not finished yet - is Little Red Riding Hood. I just love watching it grow!!!

Lori in South Dakota said...

The Angel is beautiful! I think I've been reading your blog for about a year. I love the schnibbles quilt, but I was also very impressed when you made jeans! You make lots of clothes, sewing on something that isn't flat is much harder! I have an angel collection, so I know your angel would fit right in!

SewCalGal said...

I posted about your giveaway on my blog where I share insights about contests & giveaways:


quiltmom said...

Hi Judith,
What a lovely blog you have- I am a new reader( I have added your blog to my blog list)
I love your Good Fortune quilt but you have made many other beautiful pieces.
Your angel is gorgeous- you are going to make someone very happy when they win it.
Warmest regards from a Western Canadian Quilter,

Beautiful! My sister and I had the tradition of sending an angel themed gift for my mother every year for Christmas 'from her two angels'. So we love angels. I have a grandbaby coming in the spring and if it is a girl, this would be a beautiful gift for her!

I liked your little hexie finish and also the one the cat is on! I just found your blog tonight! Am so glad I did; you have inspirational things to motivate me to get stuff done too!

Mary Ivancicts said...

I have been following your blog since you were a member of the stitching sisters. The finish I liked the best was the marriage sampler. I will post this on my blog.

Vikki said...

Judith, I think I have been reading your blog since you first started it. I am a follower on your blog also. I don't know that I have a favorite because they are all beautiful and impressive. You are definitely an inspiration. One of these days I will start quilting. I have wanted to teach myself for some time now but need the room to do so.

MaryK said...

I know I have been reading your blog since you started it. I even remember how you got your nickname. I have posted your giveaway on my blog and am also following you. I hope to have a giveaway ready in the next few days. I have always been amazed at how much you get done. Keep up the beautiful work.

Jean said...

Hi... What a beautiful give away... I love the angel ... It would go great in my bedroom... I will keep my fingers crossed and I will also mention it on my blog... Thanks for the great giveaway... :)

Anonymous said...

You truly have a generous spirit! The angel is beautifully stitched - I have been reading your blog for a few months now - what I enjoy most is seeing the cute outfits you have made for your niece? All your stitching is lovely, no matter what kind you do.

I don't want to be part of the giveaway, but I've been following ole Smokey (via 2muchXS) since2003 and my absolute favourite finish is the Dolphins, followed by Medieval Town Mandela.

All the best for the festive season Judith and I hope the Sint is nice to you, LOL

Kathy A. said...

Hi Judith - I would love to be entered in your draw.
I am a follower of your blog and I have posted a giveaway on my own blog.
I met you when we did the Hello Neighborhood together 2007-2009. You are a beautiful stitcher. Your work on my RR was incredible.

Thearica said...

What beautiful stitchery! I would love to be entered to win such a work of art!

I found you today through

I have you bookmarked on my sidebar and hope to spend lots of time visiting with you in the future!

I have taken the time to get acquainted with you for the past several minutes and have to say that my favorite finish has to be Christmas Waves. I absolutely adore black backgrounds! I use them a lot! I think they make any quilt POP!

But then again, there is the Hexagon Mini. It is close and dear to my heart. I have a large quilt made from this pattern but set in an unusual way that my dear Aunt Callie made and hand quilted many years ago,. I treasure it always!

I am adding myself as a follower as soon as I hit submit.

And you can find my post about your give away on my blog:

Thanks for the chance to win such a beautiful piece of your work!

And please do tell me how to get involved with the Schnibble Quilts next year. I do hope they will repeat that. I also found another new blog today and she was doing them as well. This quilt along is very intriquing!

tisme said...

I found your blog through Thearica, and she told me about your giveaway.
I just now got here, but signed up to be a follower. I would love to win that beautiful angel.
I have to check out all your work,before I can say what is my favorite.

Jeanne said...

I have posted about your giveaway on my blog and follow your blog with Bloglines. Now I need to pick my favorite finish of yours....

Jeanne said...

Okay, I've searched your archives and there are so many wonderful finishes to choose from. I really love the LHN cross stitch from Nov. 27, 2007. Can't go wrong if there's a cat in the project.

Quiltingnewbie said...

julieQ said...

Wow! I have seen that pattern before in my stitchery books and just loved it, but knew that I would not have time to finish it. I have had you on my sidebar forever, and came upon your blog surfing one day. Thank you for your generous heart, and please let me participate in your drawing.

arlette said...

Judith, I already blogged about your gorgeous angel, hope-to-be-mine! I have a question, where did you find the pattern?, I'm still thrilled with the angel!
