Are you familiar with Melinda of Merry Wind Farm? She reproduces the most wonderful antique samplers that she sells in her etsy shop. She has charted three of my antique samplers.

She has graciously given me a copy of each chart to give away on my blog. You have three chances to win. The first person chosen will have first pick, etc. Leave a comment on this post only or send me an email with give away in the subject line. I will choose the first winner Sunday evening and the winners will each have three days to contact me. Feel free to share on social media and please stop by her etsy shop to see all her wonderful offerings.
On Facebook I stumbled upon this fundraiser for two brigades of the NSW Rural Fire Service in Australia. All proceeds are being donated. Jane Marshall 1857 is an Australian sampler with a stitch count of 94 wide x 144 high. You can read more about it and purchase it here. PayPal automatically converts British pounds to US dollars. The sampler chart ended up costing $13.55. I don't know if I will stitch it, but definitely a worthy cause.
I have been slowly working on a reproduction sampler, Marie Journet 1863, by Pineberry Lane. I am loving all the red :)
I will leave you with this picture of Molly. She is so photogenic :) In the morning when I crank up the furnace, she loves to sit inches from the heat register.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
