Wednesday Giveaway! Win a book from Andrews McMeel Universal!

ed hardy love kills slowly subversive cross stitch pattern book 263x300 Wednesday Giveaway! Win a book from Andrews McMeel Universal!Happy Wednesday! Today we’re busy in the office with prep for 2013 and all the fantastic issues of Creative Machine Embroidery to come. We’re also looking back at forms of embroidery that didn’t necessarily use a machine. The first embroidery I ever attempted was cross-stitch. I had so much fun making little motifs for my friends and family. Did you know you can cross-stitch with your embroidery machine? Watch for tips on how to do this in an upcoming issue of CME!

With all that in mind, we’re giving away a cross-stitch book from Andrews McMeel Universal, Love Kills Slowly, 30 Cross-Stitch Patterns from Ed Hardy. This book is filled with inspiration from the iconic tattoo artist Ed Hardy. Using his fun designs, you can quickly stitch up a series of skulls, dragons, butterflies and little devils.

If you would like to win, all you have to do is answer one question: What types of hand embroidery do you enjoy?

Answer the question in the comments field below before Friday afternoon, when we’ll announce a randomly chosen winner. Best of luck!

    I most enjoy doing hand embroidered blocks of children designs to use in quilts for my Grand-children. I also like the Crabapple Hill Designs.

  4. Jenny Kucera says:

    I made cross stitch Christmas stockings for each of my grandkids, I also enjoy larger projects to be framed and displayed on the wall. Counted cross stitch is my favorite fiber hobby (and I have many)

  5. Barb says:

    i LOVE cross stitch!

  6. Christa nee says:

    I liked crewel embroidery. Once when I quit smoking, I made a big design of hot air balloons in about a week, taking my mind off smoking!

  7. Denise Davis says:

    I especially love cross stitch. I just completed a complicated picture of Jesus as a shepherd. I completed his face first (including outlining) so I would have it to inspire me as I finished the project. It took me a year!!

  8. I’m mainly a machine embroiderer but I do love a bit of cross stitch for those rare hobby time moments! Love alternative stitchery (as you can tell from my website hehe!) so the chance to get my mitts on this rockin’ book could not be missed!

  9. Debbie E. says:

    I have a few Ed Hardy jackets and they’re popular here in LA. I have only hand not machine embroidered cross-stitch and that’s probably my favorite-mostly on tea towels for gifts. I have a great variety of embroidery thread that really needs to be used!

  10. Jory says:

    I love punch needle projects! What a fun book- fingers crossed!!

  11. Judi says:

    I love doing crewel stitch embellishing items, it all started with repairing a Christmas stocking that was made for my husband when he was a youngin’ probably 57 years ago….it has been awhile since I’ve done counted cross stitch, it would be really fun doing a Ed Hardy design in counted cross stitch that would get me back at it!! Just sayin’ :)

  12. Kris Reindl says:

    I first learned hand embroidery using the designs on pillowcases. Then I taught myself how to do counted cross stitch with help from my sister-in-law. I showed my youngest sister how to do counted cross stitch and taught my daughter. My sister still does a lot of counted cross stitch. I still like counted cross stitch but my embroidery machine does it so much faster!

  14. I have done counted cross stitch. Like crewel embroidery. Like to do hand embroidery while watching TV of an evening.

  15. Sue Fox says:

    I enjoy doing counted cross stitch projects of flower and garden scenes, i am learning to do counted cross stitch on my embroidery machine now.

  16. Counted cross stitch is among my many fiber crafts. My mother taught me to do counted cross stitch at the age of 10, that was over 30 years ago! Currently I have a very large and complicated counted cross stitch in progress of a native american in full head dress with wolves mystically hid in the image. It will be a very beautiful piece when completed.
