Holiday Interuputions 

Well friends, I had a full giveaway post all ready to go. Then Miss Z woke up at 5am sick as a dog. Poor little thing; she’s got a nasty stomach bug.

So, between a sick kiddo, working this weekend, and normal Christmas shenanigans, I’m sad to say that I won’t have another giveaway until 2017.

Found this cutie on Pintrest.

I do hope that you all have a wonderful holiday! Thank you for reading and following my blog.  I can’t wait for the new year!
Happy Christmas!


Countdown To Christmas – Day 8

So …. have you finished your holiday knitting yet?  I am oh-so-close to being done.  I have about a half of a sock left to go. 

So, to help fuel your crafting fire, today’s prize is a $15 giftcard to Starbucks! 

Mmm … pup cup!

To enter : Tell me what you’re crafting for this Christmas. I’ll choose a winner after 8pm tonight. 

Countdown To Christmas – Day 7

I’m really excited about today’s giveaway! I’m so lucky to have gotten to know so wonderful fibre folk this year. There is such a wonderful community out there,  and everyone is very supportive of each other.

Betty McTiernan makes amazing jewlery for knitters.  Today’s prize is a set of her stitch markers, that you can also wear as a necklace! 

To enter : Tell me about your favorite Christmas  (or winter holiday), and why it stands out in your memory.  

I’ll choose a winnet tonight after 8pm EST. 

Countdown To Christmas – Day 6

We didn’t have a winner yesterday,  so I’m rolling over yesterday’s prize, to combine it with today’s! 

There are only SIX days left until Christmas!  Today, I’m giving away a 20% coupon to my Etsy Shop, as well as some lovely yarn from Knit Picks!

To enter : comment with what you want for Christmas this year!  I’ll chose a winner tonight after 8pm EST. 

And remember,  I’m commenting on the winner’s comment. So keep a look out! If you’re the winner, you need to get me your name and mailing info.

Countdown To Christmas – Day 5

Only in the Shenandoah Valley can you have all four seasons in one weekend. Okay, maybe three,  but still, the weather just can’t make up it’s mind. First we had temps a kin to Autumn.  Then freezing rain.  Today, it’s gonna be close to 60 F!

Today’s giveaway is for a 20% off coupon to my Etsy shop, OfGraceAndStitches.

To enter – share your favorite holiday ‘oops’ story.  I’ll choose a winner tonight after 8pm EST.
Mine is from my childhood.  Apparently I’m the reason my parents started wiring the Christmas tree to the wall! 


Countdown To Christmas – Day 4

Oh, what a truly Wintery day we’re having here in the Shenandoah Valley.  We woke up this morning to some freezing rain … and ice covering everything!


Well, that’s one way to wash my muddy rain boots!

So, today’s giveaway is going to be themed correctly.  For Day 4, I’m giving away a lovely pair of stitch markers from Maryanne at The Violet Valentine.  I’ve known Maryanne for almost ten or so years now, and she not only makes beautiful accessories, she also dyes her own yarn!
