Calling All Cross Stitchers ~

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 :)

What a wonderful giveaway! Maybe if I had a chart to work with I would get back at it. I will purchase the Austraila one.

Thank you so much for the chance! Such lovely samplers! I also purchased the fundraiser sampler for Australia :) Miss Leia has discovered the joys of lying by the heat register too :)
Blessings, Patti

These samplers are lovely and a great giveaway! I agree with Molly about sitting close to the heat, she is so cute!

Would love to stitch any of the samplers. What fabric are you stitching your sampler on? Have you checked out the free mystery sal on Linens and a Threads? This is my first mystery stitch. Love what was called for for Jan.

There are many beautiful samplers put out by Merry Wind Farm and I would certainly love to win one of these beauties! Please throw my name in the hat for a chance.

Good Morning Lauren,
I do love redwork. I would love to enter into your giveaway. Just because those charts are from samplers you own. I have been to her Etsy store the last time you shared this, but as I am still working on my sampler, I didn't buy any.
Molly is so cute. I am with her find a warm spot and stay there.
I hope you have a great day today. Its foggy and cold here. We are ripping out the upstairs bathroom today. :) Of course, I am on the computer. 3 men in there I am in the way.

I have been meaning to mention that I visited Merry WindFarmblog and was amazed to see that some of her sampler reproductions were courtesy of you! How nice that you are willing to share! I would love to win.
