Giveaways! - Giveaway Closed

I have decided it is time for some giveaways!  I have a few reasons for this - that I am paring down my stash of goodies, that I have over 200 followers now, and just for the heck of it!  lol  So, I'll keep this up for a few days at least. 
The first item I am going to giveaway is this Helen Stevens ebook with video CD from Rainbow Disks.  Here is the information from the back of the disk:

In ONE SIMPLE STITCH Helen Stevens begins a crusade to prove that if you can bring your needle up through your fabric, and take it back through to the reverse, you can embroider.... and you can work all the projects in this book.
And you don't even need lengthy step-by-step instructions.  All the information you need is encompassed by a template, a colour chart and a unique "directional diagram".  Armed with these three weapons, and one simple stitch, you can slay the dragon that has held you back from working true embroidery.  And with no counted thread techniques, there's no counting either.  So sit back, enjoy the text and the videos and prepare to become a confident embroiderer.  All with ONE SIMPLE STITCH.

So, on with the giveaway!  Here are the rules:
1. Visit Rainbow Disks, come back and leave me a comment telling which disk you would most like.
2. Agree (we will be working on the honour system here!) to write a review of the CD after you have had a chance to see it, if you are the winner.
3.  If you are a follower of my blog, leave another comment telling me that and I'll put your name in the hat an extra time.

Please make sure I have a way to contact you. If you are set to "no reply" and you don't leave an email, I will draw another name.

You have a couple days to enter - I will draw the winner's name on April 1st.  Good luck!

I would love to win One Simple Stitch. I would love to do the project in this book along with learning to use the color charts. I don't do much of this stitching style as mine always looks too thick for some reason. I think this would help. Thank you for the opportunity to win this.

The One-Stitch book looks like an interesting read, so keeping my fingers crossed!

Hardanger for the Horrified...that would be me. I admire the work...just don't know about trying it.

I have a different book by Helen Stevens that I've used a few times. She does such gorgeous and fine work.

I agree to write a review should I be the chosen one!!

...and I just became a follower.

I would love One Simple Stitch and would happily write a review. I'm already a follower. Thanks for a great offer.

Wow, Kerry, what a fun giveaway. I love the Helen Stevens Book, of course, but I found Creative Fabric Techniques intriguing, especially in light of our monthly challenge (make your own fabric) at CQI.

I became a follower; didn`t even realize I was not one. I have had your blog feed coming in to my Google Reader for years… Anyway, of course I would write a review, so pick me, hahahahaha!

Thanks and hugs,
Cathy
