Spring Freebie and Giveaway

Hi friends.  I'm coming up on my
blogiversay and really wanted to 
celebrate.  It will be 3 years on
March 28th. 
I wanted to share this freebie 
with you all that the
Gentle Art Sampler Thread 
company was nice enough to take
and distribute at Market in 
Nashville this past Feb.
I designed it around 
their floss.
I hope you will enjoy stitching it 
and would love to see your 
finishes.
xxxxxxx
xxxxxxx
This is a pic of the one I stitched.
I haven't finished it into anything 
yet, but I think it would make a
wonderful needlebook.  It's just
the perfect size.
xxxxxxx
Now for the GIVEAWAY!
I've never had a giveaway on my
blog before and thought it would
be fun and interesting.
As the prize I'd like to offer
the winner their choice of any 
one of my charts and I will kit 
it up to include the correct
count linen and floss.
How's that?  All you need to
do is leave a comment on this post
and I will randomly draw the winner on
my blogiversary, March 28th. 
xxxxxxx
I'm excited and hope you are too.
Thank you for 3 wonderful years!
It's been full of wonder and much growth 
and I'm enjoying every minute of it.
Prim Blessings,
~Nan
