split personality (& a giveaway)

Yep, Terri was right when she guessed that I was referring to a tombstone sampler in my last post!



While I love the cute, with Shepherd's Bush, etc. (not to mention my love for Mary Engelbreit), I am drawn to the dark side...



and this little design from The Primitive Needle features one of my favorite tombie sayings



I stitched this little sampler on 36 ct. PTP Ale linen over two with one strand WDW Onyx....a very enjoyable stitch!



Any other morbid fans out there? If you'd like to have this little chart, AND a beeswax tombstone angel ornament (like the one pictured here) of your very own



just let me know on this post and I'll have a drawing on Saturday, the 27th, for a winner! And if you want to stitch it with the WDW Onyx, let me know that as well, and I'll include it with the prizes :-) Let your tombie friends know, they can enter their names too!

I love giveaways, though I have never won anything. Count me in though, I LOVE anything Halloweeny. Looks like a fun stitch. Thanks for sharing, great job!

Sandra said...

Please count me in Andrea, I am a tombie fanatic, just finishing off Sarah Hook. I am planning on hanging them in my bathroom, that should give visitors something to thonk about. Love the wax angel too.

Violet said...

Oh, I love that saying, please count me in for the chart, the tombstone angel (if she can fly across the ocean) and the WDW Onyx thread.
As a child I've lived across the road of a very old graveyard and when the cat wasn't home at night I used to climb over the wall to get him.
My favorite grave was that of a woman called Angelina.
;o)

Thanks for the oportunity to win, and you made a lovely stiching.
:o)

Sadie said...

Thank you
