Train Update and Give Away Sign-up!

I hope everyone had a wonderful and relaxing Thanksgiving. We went out of town for a few days before Thanksgiving and arrived back on Wednesday afternoon about 3 hours before our company arrived for Thanksgiving. It was nice to get away, but things went immediately into full swing upon our return.



I have been promising a train update and I finally have it!




Train in September




Train project now!



Sorry, it's not the best picture. Will do some closeups soon. I stitched the dates in, 2003-2008, so I am committed to finishing it by the end of the year now! :-)

Give Away!


My next post will my 100th! Plus, my B-day is coming up this week and St. Nicholas day is this week as well, so....in honor of it all I am giving away 3 charts!


Chart 1: Permin of Copenhagen - leaflet # 150205 - Father Christmas - note: pattern is in Dutch













Chart 2: Sherherd's Bush - Santaberry Pudding


















Chart 3: Elizabeth's Designs - Flowers & Friends Stitching Club - Happy Holidays - comes with threads, pewter charm and 3 brass star charms



All 3 charts are from my personal stash, but have not been used and are in excellent condition.

If you are interested in this give away, please comment on this post and indicate which chart you are interested in. (chart 1, chart 2, chart 3 or all)


I will announce the winners on my 100th post on Saturday, December 6th.
