What a lovely Surprise!

The postman called yesterday with a package.  I was not expecting anything.  Oh, what a lovely surprise!  I had entered a "giveaway" from "New Stitches" Magazine and won.  I had won a new Sampler Kit by Moira Blackburn called "How to sow beans". 

"How to sow beans"

"Time and Season Sampler"

I just love samplers and have already started another one of her kits called "Time and Season Sampler".  I purchased this one over 17 years ago, but for some reason had stopped.  So I got it out of my WIP stash and have started again.

This is how I found it on 6 January 2011.

Well, since then I have been stitching away and enjoying every minute of it.  It's grown quite a lot in a week.

I will post a picture once a week to show you how it is progressing.

Happy Stitching
