In France

Hello dear friends. Barb and I are in Nantes. We have been shopping our way through the country. I can't post pictures here yet....but will soon. We will be back home Monday night and will have lots to report on Tuesday.
You can mail pictures of your samplers to:
alma@blackbird-designs.com   I have found some really fun things for the prize. 

Happy stitching!
Alma

  5. Being in France must be like a dream! Enjoy the rest of your stay.

    I emailed you a photo of my Petites Lettres Rouges earlier this week. I thoroughly enjoyed stitching this little sampler and finished it into a pillow.

    Safe journey home!

  17. Due to work commitments, I missed the deadline for the contest, but I would still like to send you the picture when I am finished. I used 3 shades of teal for the letters and numbers and basic sampler and then used a teal overdye for the crow I added. It is so much fun to stitch. Thank you for the pattern. I did cross stitch years ago, but recently took it up again after seeing the Autumn Bouquet sampler hanging in a photo in your When the Cold Winds Blow book. I have so enjoyed the 'new' cross stitching, the charts, fabrics, threads...THANK YOU!!! I think I've already won MY contest! I have been looking on the different blogs at others versions of the contest piece and they are wonderful. Such inspiration!
    Thank you for having the blog!

  20. Hi, What wonderful adventures you both had in France. I've been enjoying your trip through the fascinatingl blog posts. Maybe next time, you can take a little hop across the channel and visit your fan club here in England :>)
    I hope my photo has made it to you this time :>) It's been so lovely seeing everyone's versions popping up here there and everywhere. With this pretty little sampler, you have managed to link us all together :>)
