We're having our very first give-away in honor of reaching over 100 'likes' on our Facebook page and we have 4 prizes to give away!  For those of you who are here for the first time, we are a Yahoo group of counted cross stitchers who donate their time, talent and supplies stitching squares for charity.  These squares are then sent to the ladies of our group who sew them into quilts, tote bags, walker bags, wheelchair bags, bookmarks and more.  Check out the photos on this blog to see the wonderful items we make.  At this moment, we are delivering these wonderful handmade items to nursing homes, a domestic violence shelter and to the Ronald McDonald House and by request to ill children and cancer patients.  Smiles and comfort are two of our goals!

The prizes have been donated by a few of our members for this give-away.  There are some great cross stitch supplies, kits, and patterns.  So hurry to the bottom of this post and enter to win.  And don't forget to become a member of our blog and Facebook page too as it counts as an extra entry.  Have fun and good luck to each of you.

  3. This is my first visit to your site I think. I've been doing counted cross stitch for about 2 or 3 years, but I have done cross stitch on printed designs about 30 years ago. I just followed the directions that came with the patterns now read up on the craft to learn more. I cross stitch because I like doing needle crafts, including sewing, crochet and the like.
