Enter To Win

i need to pick a date for all the goodies i am giving away. check out my last two blogs to see all the great things i am offering to a lucky follower of my blog.
silk,book, charts, kits and on and on.
i have decided that i will pick the winner on April 1st what better day than April Fools day.
i am still going thru my craft room and i might have a few more items to include in the giveaway so stay tuned.

i belong to the Northwest Sampler Guild in Seattle, WA. and the last Sunday in February they have an annual  tea. We have a speaker and classes the weekend before the Sunday tea.
This year we had Amy Mitten and if you don't know who she is be sure to Goggle her name and look at her amazing charts. i have bought one other kit from her many years ago when she designed a special sampler for our Guild's 10th anniversary (yet to be stitched) but this year she taught her "Mary Queen of Scots" Mystery Sampler and purse. I took the stitched purse (pictured above).
In person it is incredible.
I spent the weekend at my friends Beth's and Amy was staying with her.
We had a great time getting to know one another.
she is full of laughter and great fun.

She puts on an amazing class. 
Her classes and designs are centered around a Mystery, part History and part Fiction.
this one was, of course "Mary Queen of Scots" i loved it.
 She has class mates read out the story and then you learn the stitches and look at slides.
 If you ever get a chance to take a class by her you must.
she dyes her own thread and the colors are beautiful and the names unique!
i can't wait to get back to stitching on this.
i am now stitching and designing my daughters first wedding anniversary sampler.
i have to have it done by June 2 this year!
don't forget get a friend to sign up for the giveaway and you will be entered twice.
enjoy the sun if you can find it...
 stay tuned for April Fools Day!
