My First Give-away

Hello to all my stitchy friends out there,

I am sponsoring my first stash give-away just in time to celebrate Independence day for the good ole US of A. I am keeping it simple, nothing to do but be a follower and leave a comment that you would like to be entered into the drawing. Leave a contact address or check this blog for an announcement of the winner on May 30th.

Here is what the give-away includes:
  •  LizzieKate Snippet, "Land That I Love" chart. The finished stitched area is 3" by 5.25"
  • 9" x 12" piece of 25 count Dublin Linen in Driftwood.  
  •  and three little star shaped charms. I used these to substitute for the heart charm  called for in the chart with very good results.
I won't be including the threads as I substituted with what I had on hand and you may wish to do the same.

Here is pic:

Thank you for following me and leaving comments along the way. Good luck to all (does that even make sense?)
