workbasket books, tatting in lace & other old tatting books

I guess I should have said what kind of books I was thinking of just giving away are. However there's been only 3 lovely ladies who commented so I gather it don't matter that all the books are not in print anymore. It was some workbaskets, a copy of Tatting in lace & some other old books too. So now I have to decide how to go about having fun with these books after all during the upcoming summer...Now ladies come on tell me what your advice is...

I think you should require something of us to qualify to win one of the books. Maybe we need to tell about our favorite thread to use, favorite pattern designer, favorite type of shuttle, or something like that. Or we could be required to tat something in order to enter. The winner could still be chosen at random, but it would be fun. Perhaps our entry could be about our biggest tatting misadventure - those are great stories!

KarenT.,
I will think about your suggestion. I'm going to come up with something we can do to have fun. That's all I want this to be for ALL to have fun.

Krystle,
I'll have to think about your offer. I just wanted to keep this fun. Yes, I did buy it, but I just thought it would be fun to let someone win these books that wouldn't get them otherwise.

I have been looking for the "Tatting in Lace" book,too. So if it is not for sale, please put my name in the drawing. I love Mary Konior's work.

This is a great idea. Making it fun makes it even better. If a tatting story wouldn't fill your comment section up too much, that would be fun for everyone to read. Karen in OR

Hey, Bsotf! Nice to see you posting again!
I haven't had satellite connection due to bad weather, so I've missed your posts.
I think it's lovely that you'd like to give away some tatting books. I'd love to win "Tatting in Lace", but, then, every tatter wants Mary's books!
Whatever you decide would be great!

Suztats,
Hello Honey! I've not been on here much either. But I do have some books & just want to have fun giving them away. I'm glad to see that you get to get on right now about as often as I do. That's why I was thinking of doing this during the summer. When my world settles down more.Thanks for stopping by & we'll talk soon.
Hugs,

tatting-marie,
I want this to be fun. I just want to do a few give aways but it won't be until this summer. Cause right now things are a bit wild in my life. So I know this summer I want to do something fun & put smiles on others face in ways not expected. I'll be sure to let everyone know when the drawings are going on. Right now I just want to get feed back on suggestions on how you ladies think it would be fun to do this. Sorry but I'm not selling anything. I just want all of us to have fun doing this deal.Thankyou for stopping by. Come back soon agian I hope.

Tattin'Kat,
Thankyou! I'm so glad that you like the books I will be giving some away over the coming summer. So now I'm trying to think of ways that we all can have fun, laugh a little & smiles on faces when it's all done. Thankyou for stopping by & come again.

Val said...

you are so right that the books/mags you are giving away can't be found in some places, like mine! :) u sure did give me some hope that i may get to own one of those rare books. lol

hope things r looking up for you, and hey aren't we all ready for fun come summer?!

BSOTF said...

Val,
I agree with you, we all need to have fun this summer. Yes, you are right about the books too. Cause some people don't or haven't ever seen some of them where they live. Which is why I am going to keep this fun. I'm so glad that you understand this. Thankyou for stopping by & come again anytime you want.

Tats said...

OOH can I get in on this one?
Miss ya buddy!
My advice is to pick "TheMadTatter"LOL!
Seriously, go with your heart, maybe put names in a hat (a "tatting hat" so to speak) I SOOOOOO badly would love the MK book, and I havent any WorkBaskets of my own. I hope I get picked! ;)

BSOTF said...

Tats,
Thankyou for the input. I will take your advice on how to do it. But when I do this, this summer it will be for fun & to make others smile. Brighten up their day a little. Now let's get to tatting!

Liyarra said...

Wish we could tat here over summer - way too hot LOL

How about choose a book and tat EVERYTHING in it. Now THAT'S a challenge!

Hugs to you mate. Hope you are well and happy.

That would be a challange but I don't tat out of books as you know. So I would lost that one real fast myself..oops! I got stopped again by stairs..LOL! I understand what you mean about the heat, we have a heat wave going on over here too & it goes clear up into Canada! But we are lucky at our place we have centeral air so it's never to hot to tat,,just not always enough time in a day to get to. I'll talk with you soon Sunshine! Take care, miss you!
