Spring Fling 2012 March Contest

There are two equinoxes every year – in March and September – when the sun shines directly on the equator and the length of day and night is nearly equal. Seasons are opposite on either side of the equator, so the equinox in March is also known as the "spring equinox" in the northern hemisphere. However, in the southern hemisphere, it's known as the "autumnal (fall) equinox".

What all this basically means is that I am finally having a contest, LOL! I have been organizing my stitching closet and other places. I have decided that I have come to a point in my stash accumulation that I will only do so much and some things I will just never get to. That being said, here is the goody bag in question:

~ Mini kits from the UK cross stitching magazine. These are complete with all the materials, including the charts. I have started two of these and know I will never finish them. Designers include Margaret Sherry, Fizzy Moon, Disney, Julia Hawkins, and Bentley Bear.

~Original hard copy charts: Brittercup Designs, DMC, Imaginating, Lanarte, Lavender Wings, Lizzie Kate, Michael Powell, Popcorn Bear, Boofle, Adam Prescott and SanMan Originals.

~ Three magazines: Cross Stitch Quick, issue 11 March 2004. Cross Stitch and Needlework September 2008. This includes the Nora Corbett Halloween Fairy which was designed exclusively for the magazine. Cross Stitch Collection Issue 124 Christmas 2005. This is just the magazine. Please note that the Victorian Christmas magazine insert is *NOT* included.

~ Accouterments: Shiny metallic threads, mini stitch bag, stitchable mirror and case, plus probably fabrics and some other threads. More will probably be added to this. :)

Now, for the 'rules':

1. Please post a comment to this post ONLY, please.

2. One entry per person.

3. I will ship anywhere in the world. :)

4. Followers of my blog get a second entry, although it is not necessary to be a follower.

5. Contest ends Sunday, March 25th, 2012.

Thanks for entering and good luck! :)
