My New WIP...and a Giveaway

Well I started yet another new project this past weekend. I was working oncountry fall by Passione Ricamo,but a lady from the 123 Stitch Message board (thank you Becky!!) sent me a piece of 28 count blue linen to stitch You are my sunshine by Country Cottage Needleworks. The piece of linen is like none I have ever seen or felt before. It's so soft and beautiful. I just had to start the new chart. Also this is the second time I have ever stitched on linen. The 1st time was when I stitched the family tree for my mother. It was horrid to work with, must have been the type of linen I used.Because this piece that Becky sent me is great to stitch on. So great that I haven't did much else but stitch. The sink if full of dishes, laundry needs done, the floors are in great need of cleaning. I want to STITCH! LOL Here is a picture of it
I also want to have a GIVEAWAY. I've had this chart in my stash forever. I actually won it in a PIF of the 123 MB. But I have yet to start it. So I want to give it away. Simple rules for the giveaway, leave a comment to this post. You must have a blogger blog or account. And if you mention this giveaway on your blog I will add your name twice to the hat. Here is a picture of the chart you could win It is called Tatty Teddy advent Calendar. And if i can find it I'll include the Aida band that is needed for the chart. Although I think the band I have is linen. It was also given to me for this project. Drawing for this chart will be one week from today.

Today is Monday and I should be at work. But I took the day off. We are expecting company. Keith's friend Arron and his pregnant wife Candice are coming to visit. I can't wait to see them. I have lots of baby things to give her, I've been saving all of Brandon's for her. Well not all of Brandon's because she is preg with twin girls. I better get off here and get some house work done. I think I will do the dishes right after I put a few more stitches in. LOL Someone come take my needle from me plz!!!

Hi Becca, I wanted to comment because I think your new wip is lovely and the linen looks a lovely colour too.

Please do not include me in the draw though as I know I would never stitch this chart and I am sure there are lots who would do. Good luck to all those you do include.
