Everything old is new again!


I know, odd title for a stitching post, but I can`t get it out of my head now that I have thought of it. I posted about this sampler not too long after I started blogging. It is American Sampler by Sandy Orton, and was published in Treasures In Needlework magazine. I tried to find a copy for a fellow blogger, and a friend kindly mailed me her unwanted copy. In the meantime, my friend had gotten one, and to make a long story short, I have a copy of the magazine with this sampler in it, and it needs a good home. If there is anyone out there who needs the chart for this sampler, just leave your comment on this post and please make sure you leave your email in your comment. I will put the names in a hat and draw a name. I will draw the name on November 21. Please, enter your name only if you are serious about stitching this sampler, as there are a lot of stitchers out there that are really wanting this. Good luck!
I see some people are not including their e-mail in the comment. If I draw your name and don`t have the email, I will draw someone elses. Please put the email in your comment on this post.

The colors are glorious and I would love to make it. And as the others have said, I would also feel grateful to pass it back to you to give to others. Thank you for this wonderful opportunity!

I would love to be in your drawing for the sampler pattern. I just found your blog from doing sampler research myself on Joanne Harvey reproduction charts. I am looking for a couple of charts that I fear are out of print.
Since my birthday is this month it would be a great present to me if I won. I would also pass it along when I was finished. It would make a great first blog-aversery for me as I am new to blogging myself.

Hi, I saw this sampler completed on another blog a few weeks ago and tried to find the magazine with no luck. Wow it would be great to win this.

If I was not a terribly slow stitcher, I would have enter my name to try to win this wonderful chart, but, it would take me over a year to stitch this masterpiece, so I just wish good luck to all !
