As you probably know the second issue of &Stitches
e-zine is available next week and it's all about books this time. To mark the happy occasion we have a fabulous giveaway for you! Lucky Jackson, stitcher extra-ordinaire, is generously offering one of her original embroidered pieces of art to give away on this blog. Lucky is still busy with her 365 days project
(stitch a work of art a day). Some of her art is available in her shop
and for some pieces there is even a pattern available
so you can make your own version! As you can tell from the photo, this piece (from the Take this job and shove it
week) fits our book theme perfectly.
For a chance to win this lovely piece, leave a comment on this post and tell us why you would like to win this Lucky Jackson Original.... The giveaway ends this Saturday 8 PM Amsterdam time! And be sure to leave an e-mail address or to check back to see if you have won because we don't want to do a re-draw (but we will, after 5 days!)....
Comments are closed!!
Good luck everyone!

I've been a bookworm ever since I can remember, so I'd looooove to win this beauty. It'd look fab above my work desk (which is often creaking under the weight of research books)! Thanks for the chance.ReplyDelete
I also love books! This is a lovely piece and I would love to keep it near my desk... to remind me to read! :)ReplyDelete
Thanks for the offer of the giveaway! :)
I have a whole series of embroidered book-type pieces; this would be a wonderful addition. I love Lucky's work. Thx for the chance to win it.ReplyDelete
I'd LOVE to win this piece of art by her! I'm totally inspired by her 365 project and I'm just amazed by the variety of work. Her designs are so clean and appealing to me. I hope to treat myself to some of her work when my funds are a little more flush. Whoever wins this is very lucky! thanks!ReplyDelete
I struggle to finish one thing a week - Lucky has a fantastic talent and I'd love to put this above my desk to remind me of all the knowledge that I gain from reading.ReplyDelete
aside from the gorgeousness and inspiration of owning an original lucky jackson...i would like to win this beauty as a reminder to craft everyday, to embroider as often as i can, to create whenever the need or opportunity arises...thanks for the chance!ReplyDelete
Books, stitching, Lucky Jackon - all things I love. How wonderful to have a piece of her amazing artwork above my workspace, encouraging me to stop procrastinating and pick up my needle. Thank you for another great giveaway xReplyDelete
Embroidery and books are two of my very favorite things, so I adore this. Lucy's work is phenomenal and inspirational! :)ReplyDelete
My love of books is second only to my love of stitching!!
Amazing work. It is almost a portrait..my husband would recognize me for sure! It would have pride of place in the bookcaseReplyDelete
I love Lucky Jackson's work! She's so clever!ReplyDelete
I love books, love to have them, love to read them, love to talk about them. They are better than the movies, better than just about anything. So glad there are so many talented writers that are will to share their talent!
I would like to win this piece because I think that Lucky's work is awe-inspiring! I also love books very much! Thanks for the chance!ReplyDelete

Lucky Jackson is fantastic! I have been following her work for some time now. The themes she has are so creative. My most favorite theme was Film Frock Week. She created this beautiful piece of Marie Antoinette back in January. Ever since then, I've been hooked on her work. Please pick me! Thanks for the this fantastic opportunity!ReplyDelete
I don't enter many giveaways, but this one is too good to resist. I so admire Lucky Jackson's skill and talent - especially how she can replicate the intricacies of human facial expressions with just a few simple stitches. Her work is stunning and her 365 Days project is inspired. I also love books so winning this piece would be a real honor.ReplyDelete
I love the pieces Lucky Jackson creates, and I'm amazed that she's able to make a piece a day! As a librarian and a book nerd, I think this sexy librarian would be a perfect addition to my office wall! All of the librarians in my building would be so envious of my stitchy artwork :)ReplyDelete
Aside from the fact that I love books, I love the colours in the background and the book spines.ReplyDelete
Wow - my daughter is studying to be a librarian - and this would so be her! She loves plaid too! What a great piece of art - thanks for the generous giveaway!ReplyDelete
Love the plaid and books--also, I'm studying to be a librarian, so this would be perfect! Thanks for the giveaway.ReplyDelete
Well, *I* should win because 1) I already own a Lucky Jackson pattern and am therefore a fan and 2) I am a member in good standing of POEM (Professional Organization of English Majors) and therefore need it!ReplyDelete
Unashamedly, I envy Lucky Jackson's gift! From the first moment I saw her work I've loved it and every single piece that is published is without a doubt a piece of art. I would so love to have a piece to gaze on every day. Thank you for the chance to be a Lucky winner!ReplyDelete
I have only found Lucky Jackson over the last couple of weeks, but the work is superb! I would love to win this just as much as all of the above ^. I haven't got anybody else's work, and it would be great to have this on my wall; something to aspire to!ReplyDelete
Because I make that face when I'm being disturbed from reading all the time. It's ridiculously crazy.ReplyDelete
I would love to win this. No for me - for my bookworm sister. Whenever my friends visit, they make a beeline for her bedroom. No one can beleive just how many books she can cram in there :)ReplyDelete
Wonderful giveaway. Would look great in my hall above my bookcase!ReplyDelete
This would look awesome on the wall in our library room at the guild.ReplyDelete
This would look awesome on my book shelf! I love her work, it's so amazing! So jealous of her skills.ReplyDelete
I love the humor as well as the skill of Lucky Jackson's work. Wouldn't it be great if we could substitute books for clothing when faced with getting dressed in the mornings?ReplyDelete
