Promises Kept (Giveaway)

Dear friends,

     What can I say - I'm not the most timely person on the planet.  
Oh, don't get me wrong; I hate being late for set appointments.  
I am, for the most part, an on time girl.  
Folks that show up late for things drive me absolutely crazy.  
Don't they care enough about the other person's time to be punctual?
The drive to be punctual only seems to apply to events in which my physical presence is required; parties, doctor's appointments, parties, meetings, and parties.  
This drive (which I blame on growing up as an Army brat) to be on time Terri has never translated to other areas of my life.  

Deadlines I don't do.  

I can't for the life of me get a card mailed on time - even though I set my calender to remind me well in advance.  
I can't seem to make something for someone early enough for the gift to be timely.  Believe me, I THINK about it months ahead of time.  
I just don't DO it.
I'm pitiful.
The physical act of doing something early enough for it to make sense is just one of my many freak of nature nuances.  
It's sad, really.
If I had actually mailed all the people whom I thought about sending a card to I could have single handedly kept the U.S. Post Office in the black.
Deadlines are not my friend.
  
So, what's all this blubbering about?
Well, I said in my last post that I'd post about my thank you giveaway last week.  
I'm late.
What can I say?
I set a deadline and I missed it.
I'm pitiful.
But, if you've hung on this long, here it is:



This is part of it anyway.


The Ann Sandles Sampler pattern
A Longaberger basket with liner, protector and lid
3 skeins of NPI floss
Sajou Paris expandable, miniature book No. 2
2 vintage tape measures
Small tomato pin cushion
vintage buttons
vintage salt shaker with buttons
4 vintage clothes pins wrapped with scrap booking ribbon
4 vintage skeleton keys
A vintage screwdriver and oil can (great for punch-needle bases)
and of course, chocolate (not pictured)!!!  YUM!!!
And, who knows what else I might add by the time I get around to drawing a winner.
So, are you interested?
If so, please leave a comment on this post only.

This is a thank you giveaway to those of you that have chosen to follow this
little blog of mine.
Truly, thank you so very much!  
I'm humbled and honored that you're here.
I'm even more humbled, and I do truly feel honored and blessed, when you leave a comment for me.
It takes time, I know and I really do get tickled when I see your notes.
I think doing so is such a nice gesture.  Again, thank you!
Anyway, here are the details:
This is open to all followers.
Doesn't matter where in the world you live.
Doesn't matter how long you've followed.
I MUST have a way to contact you.
I will not hunt you down
(as much fun as that might be).
One entry per person, please.
I will do my best to draw a winner on Wednesday, June 29th at a time of my choosing.
I will use a random number generator to pick a winner.
I will mail your package as soon as I can.
I will not be able to replace the package should it never arrive to it's new home,
so lets hope that doesn't happen.
If I don't hear from the winner with a mailing address in a week's time, I will re-draw.
That's it.
Easy Peasy, Lemon Squeezey!
Thank you all so much for the lovely comments on my own Ann Sandles finish.
I really loved working on her and I hope if you win the chart, that you will love it, too!
Until next time,
Good luck
&
Peace!
Terri

Valerie said...

I would love a chance to win all of those wonderful goodies! Count me in!

I giggled and laughed throughout your entire blog post. I too am an on-time girl for appointments and parties! However, that is where it ends! I have bought cards and do they end up in the mail on time...NO! I keep up with dates but never seem to get things in the mail or gifts given on time. I used to beat myself up (still do sometimes) but I am trying to accept who I am and reading your blog post now makes me feel like I am not alone!

Here is to all the VA girls who have the best intentions...hehehehe...if thoughts count, then our family and friends are the richest in the world!

Hugs from VA...

mdgtjulie said...

Terri, please don't enter me in your giveaway (it's very generous, but not my style, lol). I had to leave a comment and say that you're not pitiful. At least you care that you set a deadline and missed it. Many people seem to only care about themselves and what affects them. I've missed deadlines before (I have a horrible memory), and I feel bad about it too. So try to feel better knowing that it IS important to you!!!

anniebeez said...

You know that old saying...."the road is paved with good intentions". That SO SO describes me! I truly MEAN to do things and truly WANT to do things, but before I know it, the time has past. :(
So I can totally relate. But to physically be somewhere, I'm always early and hate waiting for others. I can so relate to that, too.

What a WONDERFUL giveaway! All of those cool vintage sewing things that I collect. LOVE the old measuring tapes! Of course I'm a stalker, er follower and would love to be entered. Hugs!

What a generous giveaway, and chocolate to boot!

Alice said...

Ah, we are cut from very similar cloth. I am punctual to a fault... early is on time, on time is late.... late is unforgiveable. Deadlines... I still usually make them, but I squeak right in at the last second quite frequently.

I'd love to be entered in your draw... I do believe my email addy is in my profile. Thanks!

Jackie said...

I'm exactly the same way with birthday cards, etc. I buy them early, think about it every day, and then mail them late! I'm a little better with gifts but it's always a last minute mad dash when it shouldn't be.

I'd love to be entered into your fabulous giveaway!

Lynn said...

Oh my goodness you have a lot of entries already! I thought I'd never get to the end of the list, lol!
This is a really wonderful giveaway and I'd very much like for my name to be included.
As for deadlines, I'm getting worse the older I get. I've given up on mailing cards on time. Now I just call them!

Hey Terri - what a givewaway and I would LOVE to win it!! And I know why the chocolate isn't in the picture because if you are like me, buying it for something a week away is too much of a temptation!

It only takes one chance...hope you pick me! Your sampler is beautiful, as is all your stitching.

Marjo said...

I would love to win that lot. I was just drooling over your finish of the lovely sampler. Plus I have been looking for a vintage tape measure. Oh, pick me.

Nicole said...

What an awesome giveaway!! Please count me in! :)

Linda said...

Hi Terrie
OH, I hear you girl. I make my lists, set my reminders, then don't look at them. I feel truly pathetic sometimes!! If you find a cure, please let me know!
In this vein, I haven't been in the blog world in a long time, that's on my list too!!... and tonight I sign on, and I see you've been hard at work finishing your projects. Way to go!
BTW, one day, you'll see Marianne finished on my blog, I promise!! LOL
Linda

You make me laugh. I am on time with everything but my hand mades. I gave up making timelines for them.
I would like to be apart of the drawing.

Michelle said...

What a generous giveaway, Terri! Your blog brings me a lot of joy and I always love checking in to see what you're stitching on. So thank YOU!

Littlebit said...

Aww, Terri..I'm sure with all of those comments, that random generator will pass right over me, but what a wonderful giveaway you are having..VERY generous. And your blog is always worth visiting even without a giveaway.

jennifer said...

Surfing the blogs and I found you. I'm a brand spanking new follower. I use to cross stitch a lot but sort of got away from it. I never quite got the hang of stitching on linen. Maybe now's the time. Thanks for the chance Jennifer

Anne said...

Lol Im very punctual,but my family is not so much....many arguments have ensued...lol. wonderful stitchery...gorgeous. Ifyou get a chance head over to my blog to sign up for my giveaway!!!

Loraine said...

Oh my goodness Terri! I almost missed your giveaway. That's what I get for not being timely about looking at my blog friends. Well, if you haven't drawn a winner yet, please put me in! I love everything you put in your generous giveaway.
I hate being late too. It's my big pet peeve. My kids make me late sometimes...it drives me nuts!
Hope all is well. Things are crazy here. No time for what I want to do at the moment. (big sigh). Hopefully that will get better soon.
Hugs to you!

Susan said...

I can't believe it! Am I on time? It's Wednesday 29th and just after 3PM (Pacific time). I love your giveaway and I want to be part of it. I am your new follower and I found you on Jayne's blog. You were laughing at my comment (about Voodoo pillow) so I just had to check you out. I love your blog and I'm happy I found you!

Patti said...

Oh how I wish we had estate sales here in the UK but we dont. How do you find out about them? Maybe we do have them and I just don't know how to find them. But I love all your finds. Especially the sewing machine and the baking tins and the frogs oh heck just everything. And your stitching, as usual, is just perfect and almost makes me want to stitch again but I am loving quilting because it is such a challenge and I'm so not good at it YET.
Lots of Love
Pattixxx
