Giveaway–update progress

DH has gone away again this weekend to play trains again – this time in Derby.  It meant yesterday evening I was able to enjoy several hours working on my Guess the Theme giveaway piece.  A couple of people have already guessed that it is a sampler but what type of sampler.  This giveaway isn’t just for stitchers – if there are cardmakers, scrapbookers, quilters or any other crafters out there I will try and make sure the prize is suitable for your preferred craft.  I will leave this giveaway open until my birthday which is later this month. 

Somehow I think todays photo will certainly give it away and if you read my news from yesterday that will also give you a clue as to what type of sampler it is.  The design is from an old issue of Cross Stitch Gold and is such a delight to stitch.  Just like the Cornwall Cottage Sampler it has lots of individual motifs so each time I complete one it will be like a mini finish every time.  My update shows the central panel which is just so cute.  I prefer to do the backstitch as I go as backstitching is my least favourite part but without it the design would obviously not stand out so wonderfully.

The Little Stitcher is having having a Spring Sale - couldn't resist and I have purchased a couple of her sweet designs - Alice in Wonderland and Winter Wood.  I really enjoyed stitching The Wizard of Oz - it was a fun stitch and quick to do so I am sure my new purchases will be just as enjoyable and quick.

Ah well I can guess now but I won't as I was lucky to win your recent giveaway - time for someone else to have a chance! Glad to see you are stitching something gorgeous for Harlee-Jay.

Congrats on the arrival of Harlee-Jay, even if it was an unexpected early arrival! Our granddaughter was 7 weeks early - just as well you made a start on the BIRTH sampler!
