A few things really ...

Well the first one is, let me think, does anybody know who designed this please (and yes I know it isn't a sampler but I can diverse and it kinda talks to me

I have no idea what this is even called - all I know is that it is Cross Stitched and I would really love to know who designed it and where I can get it from.

The second thing is I belong to a Facebook Group called Our Scarlet Letter Years and Nicola Parkman started it and she is offering a fantastic giveaway.  Recently the group reached 1,000 members and so Nicola decided to have a giveaway.  I don't know if any of you know about the Millenium Frame made by Needle Needs but it is the best frame I have ever used and trust me I have used quite a few in my time.  I think I must have tried every frame known to man, woman and child but this one beat them all.  It keeps your fabric as taught as you want and never leaves a mark on it.

This is what Nicola has said on Facebook and the Blog

"This is a very generous prize and the waiting list for the frames is long as demand far exceeds supply.
If you would like to be entered the rules are (hopefully) straightforward :-
1. You need to be a member of the group
2. You need to have told another stitcher or stitchers about the group and the giveaway.
3. Comment below stating how you passed on the news - own Facebook page, blog, Facebook group, guild, craft class,needlework store etc.,
4. Introduce a stitcher to the group leaving a comment with that stitcher's name. Every stitcher introduced will entitle you to another entry.
5. A name will be drawn by a random number generator on December 31st.
6. The giveaway is for worldwide shipping with despatch by me on the first working day of the New Year.

But please goto one of the two sites to hopefully you can read the whole post and join us.  I am not displaying this because I want to win the Millenium Frame, because I already have two and it wouldn't be fair.

The last thing I want to tell you is how bad I've been.  I mean really really bad.  I have ordered 4 Scarlet Letter charts I think plus I received a kit from Marsha just last week (like I don't have enough to do already).  But I will share what I bought on my next post because I think this one is long enough already.  But I just want to tell you that next year we are having two SALs (that's Stitch A-Longs) which are going to be so much fun and you will learn some new stitches (which are on my Pinterest Board Called Marry Hurst 1661and Mary Hurst Videos (I think)).  So come on and join us and have some fun next year and maybe you will be the winner of the Millenium Frame.

If you decide to join our group I want to personally wish you good luck in winning the frame.

Until next time
