Here comes the contest...and New Releases!

Well my fellow stitchers, sorry it took me a couple of extra days to post my contest but we had a big blizzard roll through on Saturday night, all of Sunday and well into Monday we are just getting dug out of 8 foot snow banks!

Here is a photo of a new release available at the start of March at Nashville Market (through the Hoffman Distributing Room) - it is called "SAND DUNE BAY" and I just love it! I stitched the design 3 different ways and in a few days I will post a view of all 3 ways it was done and then this final version that gets published.

The contest is easy - refer new readers to join my blog, leave a comment and let me know how you like the new design, that you referred someone and if you are just signing up who sent you my way - two lucky winners are going to receive each of my 3 new designs that I will release at Nashville - you will get "Sand Dune Bay" as well as a sampler and a Winter Alphabet!!! AND I will mail them out before any stores can buy'em!

Well it looks like we are right smack dab in the middle of a blizzard right now...it started snowing overnight and hasn't stopped since. I went out this morning and shoveled out front but looking now you would never know. The Interstate has been closed down officially and the City of Fargo has just issued a no- travel advisory within the city - meaning unless it is an emergency everyone needs to stay home. We've already had a foot of snow and are expecting ANOTHER foot before it ends tomorrow!
