I don't have fireflies in my garden - which is a shame... only cats, bees, a dog and the odd dragonfly!! So please settle down with a cuppa, put your feet up and enjoy!

News Break!

Quick swing by post to let you know about a couple of wonderful things I have seen recently...

First up is a giveaway :o)
Nancy from Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe is currently having a Valentine's Day Giveaway.  The giveaway is that one lucky winner will win their choice of either the Red & Cream Collection or the Grandmother's Favourite Quilts Collection.

I have no idea which I would choose if I was lucky enough to be chosen as they are both gorgeous.... and if I was lucky enough to win I already have the perfect chart to use them on.... which I will show you in a second!

So hop on over to Nancy's blog and sign up for the giveaway - remember though you must be a follower of Nancy's blog to join in the fun :o)

Next piece of fun news is.... there is a brand New Mega Free SAL to join....  Linen and Threads Mystery Sampler SAL
Karen and Brendon over at Linen and Threads are hosting this amazing new mystery sampler SAL. It is  huge!  The first month is out and is gorgeous.

Each month, they will release a new piece of the Mystery Sampler as a free downloadable chart. Link to SAL page on their website is here.

The stitch count of the final design will be 205w x 467h.  They have also created a Facebook Group so that everyone can share their progress.
Link to the FB group is : https://www.facebook.com/groups/linenandthreadsSAL/ 

Now I haven't started this yet... the sheer size is scaring me off a bit but every time I see someone's finish I fall in love with it again...  It is on my list of must start in 2017 - I just need to take a big bite of the courage bullet and start it! ;o)

Now back to my comment above.... wouldn't this look amazing in Nancy's giveaway threads?

So that's it for now... I have a post in the making with a WIP update and new start pics if I ever get back to it!!

Til next time, happy stitching and may the only frog you see be the one right here! :o)

Hugs x

Nice SAL, resistance is low when you love a design.... how long before you say you started it?? lol.

Katie said...

Oh that would look pretty. Good luck! Enjoy your new start. There is a fun under the sea SAL that keeps calling my name. I keep telling myself with all my new projects I have to start I shouldn't be thinking about it....but I still am haha.

Nice choice with the SAL, it's a little too much for me at this point with a huge pile of WIPs to narrow down. I've liked seeing other stitchers colour choices though.

Bea said...

Looks like a great SAL. What colour will you choose?
