It's been ages since I've done a giveaway and my anniversary month (which is almost over already-yikes) is a good time to do it. I bought a box lot of vintage stamped-for-embroidery quilt blocks on Ebay this spring and there were lots of repeats. Like these kitty-themed quilt blocks. Cute designs and relatively easy to embroider—even for a beginner. Mostly straight and outline/stem stitches with a few French knots and lazy daisy flowers.
The storybook cat block is from the 1960s, the cat scratching the tree is older, possibly 1940s but probably 1950s. Either would make a super cute pillow, framed picture, or the central block of a small doll-size quilt.
So, if you're interested in possibly winning this pair of cute kitty blocks, leave a comment. I'll take entries until Thursday evening and announce a winner on Friday. International shipping can be a problem with some items but I can fit both of these in a standard envelope and mail it first-class international (it may take a while to arrive but it will get there eventually). So, I'm opening this up to everyone, no matter where you live. Yay!
Just a note that I moderate comments, so don't panic if you don't see yours go up right away. And I'm still not getting email notification about comments so have to log in to get them. Not sure what's up with that.
