I have finished the Sue Hillis' YoHoHoHo ... see the photo below ... and would like to give away the gently used chart. As charted, this piece has the words "Yo Ho Ho Ho" stitched above the Santa but I left them out since I am going to finish this piece as one of a series of pillows and the others in the series do not have words stitched into the design. If you wish to enter this drawing, please post a comment below stating why you enjoy stitching pirates or Santas or Sue Hillis designs. Please note that this giveaway is for the chart only as I will use the charm when I finish this as a pillow. But, as you can see from the photo, the design is complete without the charm. I will chose the winner based on which answer appeals to me most. The winner will be chosen on April 15 ... here in the US we need a little joy on Income Tax Day ... but the giveaway is open to international stitchers as well.
I have also started two Christmas ornaments
-- the first is Sue Hillis' companion to the above design, a free chart available from her blog http://blog.suehillisdesigns.net/wp-content/uploads/2008/12/pirate-chart-blog3.jpg . You can see the photo and get the color code list by going to the blog itself http://blog.suehillisdesigns.net/ and scrolling down to the December posts. Again, this is a fun and relatively quick stitch.
