An Overdue "Thank you"
Several weeks ago I posted about winning some charts from THE NEEDLE'S NOTION. I received the beautiful "LIBERTY GARDEN" and "HOME GROWN" charts in the mail a few days later. I am looking forward to stitching these (although NOT until after I finish my three current projects!!!) because they are NOT in my usual style and yet they TOTALLY call to me! I was thrilled when I got the email about winning a door prize from The Needle's Notion because I had seen the Liberty Garden chart during the online Needlework show and loved it instantly.
What I have been remiss about posting is how wonderful Lettie, the designer of The Needle's Notion charts, was to me with this prize. To enter the draw, I had to write a post about how I was spreading the love of needlework, so I told her about the after-school craft club I run at my school. When I opened the envelope it contained not two (2) charts, but FOUR (4)!!! Two for me, and two for my girls- one a complimentary chart with permission to copy for all the students!
So, I want to publicly thank Lettie for her generosity and recommend her to all the stitchers out there as a designer whose heart is in the right place and who deserves our support. Please check out her website and see her delightful and whimsical charts.
