Oh my, all I've wanted for weeks is for the sun to come out and warm the place up. It finally does just that, to the tune of 100 degrees and wilting flowers, and now all I can think about is fall...
Orange leaves, bittersweet, masses of bumpy gourds on wooden carts at the pumpkin patch, and pumpkin spice lattes... opened windows for sleeping, fire pits and s'mores, new autumn designs, and new linen to stitch on.
Fall is perfect.
And when R&R Reproductions told me about a beautiful new linen color in their lineup, I got a really fun idea: I wanted to come up with a new autumn-themed design to go with the linen! And I wanted to have a pre-autumn celebration giveaway!
This is the little design I came up with to go with this brand-new linen from R&R Reproductions:
Stars Hollow Blend
Isn't that fabulous? Love love love the name!
And here's another fun new item: Just Another Button Company has come up with the most wonderful little coffee bean pins!
Now here is the giveaway part: One winner will receive a piece of 36 ct. Stars Hollow Blend linen to stitch Brew-Haha!, along with the overdyed threads (listed in the post-script) to go with it, and some coffee bean pins!
All you have to do is answer this question:
What does your perfect fall day look like?
The winner will be chosen from the comments left here or on my Plum Street Samplers Facebook page, and will be announced next week - some time after I return from Chicago. Probably next Tuesday. :)
And surprise! The Brew-Haha! chart is yours for the downloading! You'll find the link at the bottom of this post. :)
Good luck, and I hope you all have fun with this little giveaway - even if you're in the middle of a heat wave!
P.S. The Brew-Haha! chart calls for DMC, but Dyeing to Stitch in Virginia Beach has come up with a fun conversion to overdyed threads in these colors: Classic Colorworks' Timber (3021), Eggshell (Ecru), Pumpkin Harvest (3776), Brandied Pears (434), Straw Hat (3863), and The Gentle Art's Gingersnap (400), Endive (3011), Grecian Gold (680), and Nutmeg (3826).
P.P.S. This is the bottom of the post. Download Brew-Haha! :)
ETA 7/15: The original color conversion called for Classic Colorworks' Gingersnap, but the correct color is The Gentle Art's Gingersnap.
