Doodle Stitching Giveaway




Oh my goodness! I am so excited! Aimee Ray has a new book out! Doodle Stitching: Embroidery & Beyond: Crewel, Cross Stitch, Sashiko & More. It is fabulous! Not only does she give you great patterns, but also step by step instructions to so many different projects. You will find chapters on such techniques as stumpwork, Shisha, cutwork, stitching on felt and Sashiko, just to name a few. The book really has something for everyone, whether you are a beginner or a stitching guru.



The awesome people at Lark Crafts and Sterling Publishing were kind enough to not only offer up Aimee's new book but also a wonderful one of a kind Aimee Ray scarf (EEEEPPPP!) as a giveaway. All you have to do is leave a comment below and an email to contact you. That's it! Easy peasy!

You have until 9pm Central Standard Time, Sunday. March 31st to enter. Just one entry per person, please.

I am working on the Babushka doll Aimee has in her book. Check back to see the finished project and find out who the winner is.



Giveaway Recap:

What:       Doodle Stitching: Embroidery & Beyond and a scarf embroidered by Aimee Ray
When:      Enter now until Sunday, March 31st, 9pm CST

Good Luck!

  91. I would love to learn more about Sashiko and embroidery methods. I have been house-bound due to illness and weather. I am starting to learn how to do thread painting and enjoying the long and short stitches. It is awesome to see a blank, white canvas turned into something artistic and beautiful.
