Needlepoint.Com Giveaway

Horse Country Chic would like to welcome Needlepoint.Com as our newest advertiser. Based in Raleigh, N.C. Needlepoint.Com has one of the best websites around and a fabulous selection of needlepoint canvases online. Their retail store is pretty cool too if you live in the Raleigh, NC area.  For those of you who like to stitch but don't have a store nearby, the Internet brings one to your living room.  Trunk shows, accessories, educated professionals who can recommend threads, finishing, great sales, and anything else related to needlepoint, there is no better source.

In honor of our new stitching friends, we are offering a "giveaway" - this lovely foxhead which is on 13-mesh canvas (easy on the eyes to stitch), with the cotton threads you see attached, complete with needles.  You'll have everything you need, just add a background color!  The canvas is 6 inches wide and 4.5 inches tall.  This will look adorable stitched and the winner will have to send us photos of the finished product. Here is a picture of the fox finished and framed.  Looks good with a hunter green background. I could see doing it also in yellow, a lighter green, light blue, even a shade of pink or raspberry. This would look great on a table in your den. 

You could also make this into a great pillow, like this:

Or you could have it made into a "sign" that would hang over a doorknob like this one that I stitched a few years ago:

Needlepoint.Com can recommend finishing once you complete it.

Here's how it works.  If you want to enter the contest, please go to Needlepoint.Com's web site  here and/or Facebook site here.

Pick out something else that suits your fancy to stitch and tell us why that would be the next project you'd add to your stash. They have a lot to like!  We'd just like to know!  I can't wait to see what everyone likes!

Send an email with what you would pick out and why - you can include a description of the item or the name/vendor.  We will select a winner on Monday, July 23rd.  All entries must be in by 12 noon pm on Monday, EDT. Happy stitching!
