From El Salvador to Russia with love.

In last days off I have received a remarkable card from Eleana. We with children delightfully examined an envelope and the marks which have arrived to us so from apart. It so is unforgettable, to realize that for thousand kilometers who that specially tried for you.

And I will be glad to participate in such exchange still.  Thanks Eleana.

SAL #3
So far, 15 friends stitching along! :) Have you all decided how you will stitch your 4 cats? I'm starting mine next weekend :D

Christmas card exchange
Two postcards were missing, finally Eleana received Svetlana's beautiful card :) and she also told me that Svetlana got hers! So it's official, our exchange is finally closed! :D

New authors
Rachele (Italy), Pelasia (Poland) and Kathy (UK).
Welcome to the group ladies :D Enjoy! Have fun!!

Where to buy list
We have a list with online stores where everyone can buy Margaret Sherry's designs. Please, if you know more stores, let us know so we can update it ;) Thank you!

New contest?
I had an idea for a Spring contest, I want to share it with you and ask your opinions! What about we have a stitching contest? Spring theme, we will pick a chart from some Cross Stitcher or The world of Cross Stitching (something current so everyone can buy it). Everyone would stitch the same chart and you could finish it as you'd like! In the end, we would post our pictures and open for votes here on the blog.

The winner would get a prize given by all the others participants. Something small, easy for everyone to send ;) For example, if we have 15 stitchers in the contest, the winner would receive a DMC thread from everyone else, it would be a prize of 14 threads :)
So, if we lose, we have to send a thread, if we win, we win as much as the number of partipants. What do you think about that? :)

For the prize, I thought it would be fun ribbons, it's also easy to send in a small envelope, right? And it would be great to get so many different ribbons from different countries! What would you like, DMC threads or ribbons?

Share your thoughts! Give us your opinion ;)

2004 Calendar - Cow with flowers

Hi everyone!
I am one of the new Margaret Sherry lovers Nia was talking about into the previous post.
I'd like to share with you my Margaret Sherry works and to start here is a pot holder I stitched some years ago for a cross stitch swap.

This Margaret Sherry cow is part of "Margaret Sherry's 2004 Calendar" and was stitched on red 14 count Aida.
