Stash Grab Bag Giveaway – Have you stitched Brushstroke Butterfly?

This giveaway is now closed

Brushstroke Butterfly is probably the most popular free cross stitch design here at Stitching the Night Away and I love getting emails and seeing blog posts with pictures of everyone’s finished projects. I’ve been trying to gather them up for the Gallery of Finished Cross Stitch projects here on the site, but there are quite a lot of them spread across the web so I am here to ask for a little help on this – and of course reward you for stitching and sharing the design as well!

So, here’s the deal. I want to see your finished Brushstroke Butterfly and I’ll compile the images into the Gallery here on STNA and add them to Flickr as well. For every finished image you send me you’ll be entered into a giveaway for this lovely stash grab bag, just put together today right out of my own personal stash cabinet!

Stash Grab Bag Giveaway April 2011

Stash Grab Bag Includes:

  • small springload cross stitching hoop
  • 1 spool of Kreinik Silk Serica (#9034)
  • an 18×26″ cut of 28 count hand-dyed fabric (Sand from Silkweaver)
  • an odd size cut of hand-dyed fabric (unlabeled peach and pink color from I forget where – oops!)
  • a fat 1/8th cut of 16 count hand-dyed aida fabric (Buttercup from Heaven Lee Creations)

How to enter:

Leave a comment with a link to your finished project picture on the web and I’ll go check it out! If you haven’t uploaded your image to the web that’s okay, you can send your picture as an email attachment to and still be entered in the giveaway.

Only projects of completed Brushstroke Butterfly patterns count for this giveaway! (But, don’t fret, there’s still time to stitch it if you haven’t yet AND we’ll be doing this with other patterns in the future!)

Yes, if you’ve stitched this design multiple times it counts as multiple entries! Yes, group projects such as Love Quilts entries count also, in fact Love Quilt submissions will count as double!

Fine print and additional details

Contest is void where prohibited.

Location restrictions are being lifted for this one, so if you’re across the pond it’s all right, I will gladly ship to you on this particular giveaway and I look forward to seeing your entries!

You have until midnight Eastern Time on Friday April 29, 2011 to enter your project. After that a winner will be selected at random and announced here. I will also notify the winner by email to collect their shipping details for the stash package.

    I am making mine into a purse. Still braiding the kumihimo strap. I put 3 photos on my facebook page. One is the front of the purse with the Brush Stroke Butterfly, the second one is the backside, and the 3rd are the two together. Thanks for taking a look!
