Giveaway!

I am doing a little giveaway to celebrate that I have finished my first set of embroidery patterns (there's a little sneak preview in my previous post.) In addition to one copy of the PDF pattern itself, I'll be giving away a tea towel (my favorite kind, the flour sack ones that are so handy in the kitchen!) and some embroidery floss to make your own "Time for Tea" kitchen towel. Flour sack towels are 100% cotton, and are what I used to embroider the two samples in my previous post. As seen in the photo below, they can be a bit wrinkly, but I think that makes them more homey. The embroidery floss is what I use for embroidery, DMC floss in some of my favorite colors that would go with this particular pattern (and of course, you can continue use the patterns for all sorts of fun embroidery projects after the towel is done!)
To enter, please leave a comment sharing your favorite treat to have along with tea (add a link to a recipe if you want to share it!) before midnight (EDT) on May 31. I'll pick a comment at random on June 1 and announce it on the blog, so check back to see if you are the winner! If I don't hear from the winner by June 2, I'll pick an alternate. Thanks for visiting and good luck!

ETA: Comments are now closed. Thank you for visiting!

Lovely giveaway!
I am a huge fan of all things Tea.
With a bold, strong black tea like Assam, I prefer savory snacks like sandwiches or crackers.
Chai begs for a light, crisp almond or chocolate biscotti.
I do not care much for herbal teas, but love flavored black, white and red teas.

hugs,
Heidi

Amanda said...

My favourite thing to have with tea is Lemon Meringue Pie and this is the recipe I use:

http://www.exclusivelyfood.com.au/2006/06/lemon-meringue-pie-recipe.html

It makes a lemon meringue like they should be - tangy but moreish ;-)

Great giveaway too my fingers are crossed.

roseread said...

My favorite teatime treat is cream cheese & crackers.

two hippos said...

Great giveaway. I like buttery scones but no tea -- just hot water and lemon, I'm weird like that.

I'm doing a giveaway as well and hosting a fabric swap. Come and check it out :)

modernquiltlove said...

Cake but I love cake with everything :)

I have to admit--cheesecake!

Mikaiya said...

Thank you for hosting this giveaway! My favorite are lemon scones with clotted cream... mmm...

Frau Traumberg said...

Lovely, thanks for GiveAwayMay!

I prefer my alltime easy cake "Almond covered cake":

http://www.tanjas-traumberg.de/index.jsp?id=1118

It's done in less than 30 minutes, so if a friends calls for teatime, cake is ready, when she arrives! ;-)

the mama monster said...

cute patterns! i am really into lemon bars right now. i love the ones in the kraft magazine with cream cheese in them.

Amy said...

How fun! That would be a nice little project. I would have to say that any little homebaked cookie along side some herbal tea is my favorite.

peacenluv78 said...

a nice buttered croissant...yum...

peacenluv78@gmail.com

Sara said...

I love biscotti with tea...

Although I don't like herbal teas!

whistlepeaknits said...

I love lemon scones!

Jingle said...

melonkelli said...

I love cookies. My favorites are Le Petit Ecolier cookies in Dark Chocolate!

Thanks for the giveaway! You can reach me at http://kitknitty.com.

Jessica said...

Beautiful giveaway, thanks!
I love a strong black tea (no milk or sugar) paired with anything sweet!

Raspberry said...

I love petit fours, because when I was a little girl my mother made them for this amazing baby shower...but of course we can't always have those with tea. Usually I don't have anything with my tea. :)

Jules @ MoonCat Farms said...

I used to embroider tea towels with my Gramma. What wonderful memories that brings back.

My favorite thing to have with tea are actually her little lemon cookies. I use her original recipe still!

andrea creates said...

Very nice:)
For sure cookies with tea-or scones or anything with chocolate!

affectioknit said...

This is such a Lovely Giveaway - I'm such a tea addict and often drink it unaccompanied - but I love a nice pot of Earl Grey with some sweet scones...

Shanny said...

I love biscotti! Or some other bread.

Lori Kay said...

My tea time treat would be Cat Cookies from Trader Joe's. Not fancy but they're satisfying!

jeanmarie. said...

My favorite treat to have with tea is a scone. I have made a few different kinds, but I think my favorite is apricot white chocolate! Raspberry scones are also delicious!

Lisa said...

My favorite thing to have with tea is biscotti :P (especially lemon poppyseed with cranberries - yum!)

Laurel said...

Oh lovely! I love chocolate with my tea.

Anita said...

Cute designs! I love scones with clotted cream (cream tea) when we are in England visiting my in-laws.

The Mangerchine's said...

i've been wanting to learn to embroider, and this would give me just the incentive that i need!

i drink a cup of cranberry pomengranate green tea every morning, i like pretty much any tea just fine by itself, but adding some type of sweet never hurts!

Tiffany said...

OMG. I think this is the best giveaway I've come to! I love embroidery floss/original patterns. And that pattern is so great!!!

please please please pick me.

I love using tea to dye paper/fabric. :) And the smell of tea. But drinking it? I haven't quite gotten there yet. :)

Tiffany fortheloveofartandthemaking[@]gmail[.]com

Baba said...

Scones with tea of course.

kathytypestoo said...

great giveaway-thanks for your generosity. I love cherry scones with lemon curd to go with my english breakfast tea!

I love scones to go with my tea!

MoniCue said...

monicawalk@hotmail.com

ircabbit said...

What a great idea! I like the project kits because they get me all set up so I can get started right away.

Zom! said...

This is such an exciting giveaway. I was just thinking of restarting my embroidery hobby!
Tea on its own is excellent,but to make it truly tea time nothing will do but to have fresh made clotted cream, scones and homemade strawberry jam. Note that continual teatimes of this nature will lead to at least 5 more lbs within a week..

Dolores said...

Ritz crackers or a Finnish coffee bread called pulla. It has cardamom in it and it is delicious.

marie*jolie said...

Favorite thing to have with tea... lemon pound cake. Yummy!

thanks for the chance to win!

Kim said...

It's so hard to choose, I so like sweets. I like biscotti or pumpkin bread with my tea. Thanks for the opportunity to win your embroidery thread.

Laura said...

This is wonderful! I've been wanting to teach myself to embroider but needed some floss to get going. My favorite treat is anything homemade with love. :) It helps if it has chocolate and/or pecans in it.

mscleaverchronicles said...

I've been wanting to do more embroidery and this would be just the motivation

Sara said...

ah, shortbread and tea is the bestt thing ever.... YUM! (okay, now i'm off to *get* some tea!)

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

The thing I like to enjoy with my chai tea is a sugar cookie.

Jesse said...

I'm afraid mine's a bit boring - toast with honey.

Linda Schiffer said...

I love those tea towels! Years ago, when I was 4 1/2, my grandma taught me my first embroidery stitches by drawing around the top of a glass three times overlapping (like a shortened version of the Olympic rings:) onto one of her dishtowels. Years later, I still love embroidery the best though I've learned many other fiber skills since.

:) Linda

BKelly said...

Okay, so its a bit boring, but I love just a simple shortbread with my tea. I have however been drinking a new tea with caramel in it, and is a treat in itself!
I am new to embroidery, but this looks great.

Charity said...

My favourite treat is a piece of shortbread, or a bit of dark chocolate. Mmmmm.

Sunnymommie said...

I just made pudding cookies last week. and it sooo tasty!! it so good with hot tea.

Knitlee said...

I actually don't drink tea...so my best guess is crumpets? I love this giveaway and would love putting a homey touch in my kitchen! thanks!

Meg said...

I love Chinese teas, so I think dumplings would actually be my favorite snack!

Collette said...

Such a cute towel and a lovely giveaway!

I love, love iced tea and frankly, pretty much anything goes wit that! But my current favorite are salted white chocolate oatmeal cookies. Now, I know, that sounds gross kind of and I don't even like white chocolate but seriously, give it a try!

tammiemarie said...

I like tea, but not usually with a snack, as i drink it to unwind at bedtime. I like cookies and coffee though! Thanks for the chance!

Ali said...

I love embroidery! Cross stitch is my forte. My Dutch grandma used to make these butter sugar cookies that we would have with tea. When I was a kid, we always had milk in our tea, but I like it with just a spoon of sugar now. And I can't drink green tea, it's like a weak imitation. Must be black.

Lane said...

Hob Nobs are where it's at for tea! Choco Bikkies FTW!!!!!


p.s. embroidering rocks my socks!!

Leigh said...

I prefer iced tea, so for me that goes with summer food- berries, cookouts, fresh corn on the cob! Mmmm!

Jennifer said...

Chocolate chip cookies!

aviatrix said...

My grandma's carrot cake, but it's a heavily guarded secret. I only wish I had it. She doesn't even let anyone in the kitchen when she bakes it.

Wood Violet said...

Great giveaway - I love your sneak peak :)
I don't have it often, but I crave/dream about/love lemon squares - nice and tangy with a shortbreaad crust - perfect.

Katie said...

I just got into embroidery! When I drink tea, which isn't that often, I usually just drink it alone. I make it when I'm super stressed out. But I put a lot of honey in it as my sweetner.

SAMZE said...

Thank you for this giveaway! Oh my gosh it is soooo cute. I *love* my tea! I usually just savor my cups of tea alone...the tea brings me joy! :) I often drink Japanese and Chinese teas and love them as my after dinner treat. Thanks so much again! I would love to win this!

Melissa said...

I love all desserts, but I will go with cookies. Any cookie. :)

xstpenguin said...

I have a real soft spot for tea themed things, your embroideries are lovely! I've recently gone back to embroidery so this is perfect.

Favourite thing to have with tea? A biscuit, for dunking of course. That is British biscuits, not cookies. I've rarely met a biscuit I didn't like, but have a weakness for shortbread (I am Scottish) or ginger nuts. yum.

Cheers,
AJ

Kaye Prince said...

My favourite thing to have with tea are the tea biscuits from the Purity Cookbook. Here's a link to the recipe on my blog (that I posted for The Recipe Box Swap): http://miss-print.blogspot.com/2009/03/recipe-box-swap-tea-biscuits.html

thanks for the opportunity :o)

undeadgoat said...

I have an excellent recipie for tender scones which I just made last night--and remembered why I haven't made it in a while, after eating little else all day. (They were always a big hit with the boys in Geography Olympiad in high school . . . though during lunch hour we didn't make tea.)

Bonnita said...

I just started embroidery again after many many years. Don't know why I waited so long.

lyndyloo said...

I'm more likely to drink coffee than tea, and something chocolate is what I often crave.

Julia Marie said...

I don't get around to tea too often, but when I do, I love to share it with some homemade banana bread.

missdines said...

I don't drink tea!! But I love cookies with milk. Can that count?!

maxandellie at gmail dot com

candice said...

My favourite treat to have with tea are the most delicious chocolate biscuits in the world - Tim Tams!
I discovered these biscuits when I moved to Australia as a newly wed and have had a love/hate relationship with them ever since (10 years!)... I love them so much that I can't stop eating them and put on weight and therefore hate them at the same time... sigh... it's a tough addiction but I'm dealing with it (by getting hubby to do grocery shopping so I'm not lured down the snack aisle!) :D

If I win, I will send you some Tim Tams so you too can appreciate these delicious naughty snacks with your tea!

:)

What cute patterns ! For me anything works with tea, but sandwiches and french fries are my faves.
Awesome giveaway..do count me in !! :-)
Thanks

Emily said...

I like 'everyday cake' with tea, often a variation on yogurt cake, http://chocolateandzucchini.com/archives/2005/10/yogurt_cake.php
maybe with some fruit in it.
When I was working in a coffee (and tea) shop, I had a pretty bad rugelach habit, but I've convinced myself it would be too hard to make at home, which does help keep my weight in the reasonable range, I think.

Sarah~ said...

We usually treat ourselves to digestive biscuits with green tea, we love to eat white cheese with red tea~ <3
lovely giveaway!!

If I'm having sweet iced tea (as we southerners do) I love cheese-its! If it's hot tea, I prefer to drink it black and by itself!

Madre Adoptiva said...

Bagels, cream cheese and lox. mmmmmm

PrincessMax said...

Oh, definitely Carr's ginger lemon creme cookies. Thank you, Trader Joes.

Becca P. said...

My favorite thing to have with a cup of Good Earl Grey Tea... would have to be my mother-in-law to be's Biscotti. I am not quite sure of the recipe but it she uses Walnuts and a touch of Anise. The best part is (to me at least) she doesn't double bake it, so it isn't quite so hard.

yehudim said...

I like animal crackers..lol I am such a child, I know!
Thanks for being so generous!

madeleine cookies are the best. so buttery and soft. My family is dutch-indonesian, and there are these Dutch cinnamon-spice cookies (windmill spice cookies) that my mom gets. They go great with a hot cup of tea on a rainy day.

Thanks for the giveaway!

JJ said...

I love Oreos with tea...I know it's a bit odd, but they get soft and gooey when you dunk them and the tea follows well! I've just taken up embroidery and love this giveaway!

Thistle Cove Farm said...

This is an AAAdorable give-away; many thanks for your kindness.
I've started embroidering tea towels, napkins and the like...great past time with something productive to show for my efforts!

Well I don't drink tea very much, just a chai tea occasionally. If I could (without gaining weight so much) I would have cookies with it, ginger snaps or some kind of molasses cookie.

I'd say any type of muffin... orange spice maybe. Thanks for the giveaway.

Mini sandwiches are a favorite with tea. A bit traditional and fun!
Thanks for the participating in giveaway day!
