Santa Finish and Glad Tidings Giveaway!

As I said the other day I worked on the Santa block on Kathy's ABC Sampler over the weekend, and my last progress report, you could see that I was getting close to finishing the "S" block.



I wrapped up the stitching on Santa late last night, and I wanted to go to bed more than blog.  I figured it could wait one more day.  So here it is, in all his Christmasy goodness!


Here's the whole sampler at a glance, as you can see I'm getting closer and closer to Z!


As promised last week I said I would give you until Wednesday to enter to win a chance to stitch the Glad Tidings chart I stitched up recently.  The winner is Andrea of the blog The Craft Room.  So the chart will be heading back across the pond where it came from!  Sally was kind enough to pass it on once she stitched it. I hope Andrea will do the same and pass it on when she's done stitching it.


Its spring here!  Finally!  Aren't the apple blossoms so pretty right now?

Love the Santa finish. This whole thing is really looking great. I think I can smell those apple blossoms. Had an apple tree in my Grammy's back yard so it brings such great memories. CJ in OK
