Cross stitch alphabet sampler and a giveaway

Hello, everyone. I have moved. I had to do it in a very short time, had a week to pack and arrange lots of administrative things, then travelled 3 days. And I have been working at my new workplace for a week now and enjoy it a lot. But didn´t have much time or energy for my hobby.

But today, finally, I managed to sit down with my program and finish the blue alphabet I started to design before moving.

Here it is: first a full picture, and then broken down into four pieces for easier printing. I also added the 10x10 lines to these, and tried to shade 3 rows and columns for overlap - I hope I didn´t make a mistake there, it was my first time. Not as easy as it seems. :) Hope you enjoy it.






And as promised, I am doing a GIVEAWAY to celebrate that my blog has attracted 20000 visitors. The price will be a pack of threads and fabric, with some unusual ones included. Cannot post a picture right now because some of my things still haven´t been unpacked but will do so soon.
The winner will be selected from those who post a comment and answer this question:

What type of patterns would you like to see in the future?

Looking forward to your answers. I will draw the winner next weekend.
See you soon.

I love all your work but would like to see something that incorporates Sweden in some way. Love this alphabet.

I love samplers, especially subversive ones (as you know!), so a subversive sampler for Halloween would be great (since we're heading towards tht holiday!).

Congrats on your 20,000 visitors too! :)

Ooh, this is a pretty sampler!

I like so many different patterns, but I've really enjoyed the bookmark patterns and would love to continue to see more of those.

They're such an easy quick stitch and are perfect for last minute gifts.

Congrats on your visitors!

So sorry hear about the hectic move, but I'm glad you made it through okay :) Love the new sampler, and the way you have it formatted!

As far as the giveaway goes (Congratulations!!!), I just love seeing whatever you feel like designing and posting, honestly, although - like Flossy - I'm fond of your Blackwork! And flowers, I'm always happy to see more floral designs :)

Please enter me into your draw. I have posted your Giveaway on the sidebar of my blog.

I love samplers and Celtic designs. Some needle books and scissor keeps would be nice perhaps with a folk art feel to them. Blackwork, Biscornus and Quaker designs would also be great. As you can tell I love all sorts of designs.

Happy Stitching

That sampler is great.

I'd like to see a blackwork sampler, I've never seen one and I think it would be original.

Congrats for so much visits on your blog!

what a pretty sampler!! I'm obsessed with blackwork at the moment, a blackwork sampler would be beautiful, or a biscornu, kind of addicted to those too, I'm a hopeless case really!

congrats on reaching 20,000 visitors!!

Your work is beautiful. The Celtic work, the hound and horse especially. I would love to see dogs. People incorporate a lot of cats, well I am for the dogs! ;)

Really like your folk art style designs. Geometric with some curve movement in them. Also like pulling parts of a design out to make co-ordinating smalls.
