My Frame-Up Means A Giveaway!

First of all, how do you like my blog's new look for spring?  Pretty chic and fashionable, right?

Last weekend, I figured it was about time to get my framing project done.  I'd had the framing materials for LHN's "America" for a while, so I was ready to go. 
The cherry wood frame sets off the stitching nicely, don't you think?  OK, so I'll admit it's not completely finished.  My framing assistant has to affix the glazier points and put on the hanger and then I'll cover the back.  But besides that, it's all done. 

I've decided that this lovely patriotic chart needs a new home and I'm pretty sure that there's someone out there who would love to stitch this.  Do you know someone by any chance?  Let's do a giveaway! 
1.  Be a follower of my blog.
2.  Make a comment on this post by April 14th.  The 14th will be the last day for comments to enter the drawing.  (If you wish to comment after the 14th just to tell me how awesome my blog is, you can still do that.)
3.  Make sure that there's a way to reach you!  This is very important!

I will draw a name on April 15, our traditional tax day.  Didn't they extend it this year, or did I dream that?   I have no idea why I picked that day.  I guess I associate it with fun, fun, fun. 

Good luck!


  1. Cathy-I love your new look for spring! I recently updated my blog as well, I think we're anxious for pretty spring flowers. Your LHN stitching looks gorgeous, and I agree the frame really sets off the piece. That chart is on my wishllist, and I would appreciate the opportunity to be a recipient. Have a great day-Cindy

  2. That surely did come out really nice! Good job!

  5. Hi Cathy, a gorgeous finish and the cherrywood frame does look lovely.

    Please count me in for the giveaway - I am a great fan of Amercian patriotic stitchery (we just do not have that same sense of patriotism here in Australia whilst we all love Oz we tend to be much more laidback about it - lol!). I would love to do this pattern.

    hugs, Kaye
