January 6th is the Twelfth Day of Christmas the day the Kings/Wise Men came to visit Baby Jesus and give him gifts. So here they are, bearing gifts for my followers.
There are seven draws, one for each king and each wise man. What's that? They are the same thing? Don't you know your Joyce Grenfell? For those of you unaware of the amazing Joyce Grenfell, please follow the link to some of her monologues. In the mean time here is the relevant excerpt. Imagine a Nursery School teacher organising the Christmas Nativity play:
Now, my Wise Men here, please!
Billy, Peter and George.
And George, Wise Men never do that...
Now my Kings, please.Of course, Mrs Binton, we know that by tradition the Wise Men and the Kings are one and the same, but we did want everyone in our Nursery School Nativity Play to have a chance, so we have taken a few liberties, and I don't think any one will mind...
Now Kings: Sidney, Neville, Cliff and Nikolas Anoniodes.Four Kings, I'm afraid. We happen to have four lovely crowns, so it seemed a pity not to use them.Sidney, put your crown on straight please, not over one eye. What have you got under your jersey?
That's not the place for a hamster, is it. Put him straight back in his little pen, please.
Draw Number 1 is this booklet of Springtime designs plus 2 cards and envelopes. It was a cover gift with World of Cross Stitching magazine.
Draw Number 3 is this booklet of vintage designs. It was a cover gift with Cross Stitcher magazine and I was really looking forward to this until I realised all the designs had already been in the magazine! However if you haven't got this mag where you live it is a lovely prize.
Draw Number 4 is a set of Christmas House ornaments. The kit includes material, aida, felt, ribbon, buttons and threads (which are not DMC or Anchor and you may want to sub them!). I've seen these stitched up and they are rather nice, but I don't do the whole sewing thing! I will include the instructions on how to make them up too.
Draw Number 5 is a selection of Madeira Metallics. I won these for having a letter printed in a magazine but I already have alot of DMC metallics so I would rather these went to a good home.
Draw Number 6 is a "Stitching Friends" ornie stitched by my own fair hands. Here is a similar one, but your's will be in blue. And the corners will match!
The final Draw Number 7 is just for Quilters. The San Man Originals Forum has had a New Year makeover and there are the cutest little shop designs there. I am desperate to stitch the Quilt Shop for someone but I don't know any quilters! So if you quilt (and have blog evidence to prove it!) then this is for you.
Rules, only one - comment on this post by Friday 13th (lucky for some!) stating:
Good Luck to everyone who enters.
